Leafs Media Rumours / Re: Pietrangelo Watch
« on: Yesterday at 07:37:44 PM »
We would have Rielly/Pietrangelo for 2 years, then hope Sandin can be ready in 2022/2023 to take over a bigger role.  Bottom 6 they have to entice those bargain bin deals for vets like Spezza took this year. I'm old, I don't want to wait another decade.

You think the Leafs are a Pietrangelo away from winning a cup?
Why not? The friggin Islanders nearly made it to the final and the Stars did. Get on a roll at the right time and you never know. A guy like Pietrangelo would soak up alot of minutes

As much as I'd like to have AP, I'm def starting to lean towards the not signing him side. 7 mill per max....let someone else over pay him.

Where else are they gonna find a right hand shot like him?  The Leafs window is only as open as the Matthews contract which is 4 years left.  Might as well take a big swing now, go big or go home.
That's why I was, well still, on the fence in the first place. I think we can survive losing Kerfoot and Johnsson to sign him but it's that 7 year term. Don't worry, later today I'll be leaning towards get him lol. I guess the bottom line will be the dollars involved. If we can get him under 8??

I'm like a crazed GM on his last ropes not worrying about 7 years down the road.  I've waited long enough for a Cup to my team let's do this, damn the torpedos.

It's a way to look at it.  I'm not sure I necessarily want to put all our eggs into the basket of win before Matthews leaves in 4 years basket though.  Realistically we have the chance of having Marner/Matthews/Nylander here as elite players for another 10 years.  Signing Pietrangelo to a big deal is great.  It also means we lose Rielly in a year.  So are the Leafs that much better of a Cup contender with a garbage bottom 6 fowards because we can't pay anyone by simply replacing Rielly with Pietrangelo?  I'm not sure that's really the case.  It would make us much better on the defense this year and then we could be a world of trouble the year after that.

Ovechkin didn't win his Cup until his 13th season with the Capitals.

This man is enjoying retirement.  He isn't coming back.

He's probably pushing 300lbs now too

St. Louis really, really doesn't do signing bonuses eh. The only player on the team who gets one is ROR and that contract is from Buffalo.

No NMCs either.

If we can leverage bonuses and NMC/NTC assurances into a lower AAV and term (a la Muzzin)...

You can guarantee any deal the Leafs offer will be league minimum actual salary and everything in signing bonus.

I'm coming home
I'm coming home
Tell the world I'm coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Tell the world that I'm coming

So the draft is Oct 6-7 and UFA starts Oct 9th.  We're 14 days away before stuff really starts to happen.  I can imagine the NHL wants teams to not do anything while the final is ongoing so as not to distract from their show, can't wait until the cup is awarded and the fireworks begin.

First buyout window opens this Friday too.

Hold me.  :D

A) Was at a price that, relative to league salaries, Tavares has never justified with his play

B) Set a salary structure for the team that probably hurt them in the 3 RFA negotiations

C) Bolstered a position where the Leafs were arguably at their strongest

All correct. The Leafs and the fans seemed to go fall head over heals in love with Tavares. Rightly so, as he is a great player. But the signing shouldn't have happened. Not at that cost. I'm not saying that the team is losing because of him. But it certainly threw a wrench into the rebuild.
I didn't like the signing at the time, was never big on Johnny T. and at the price, Whew.  I guess they felt they had to make the statement that "this is the new Leafs" especially after not enticing Stamkos enough.

Maybe I'm mis-remembering, but I don't recall anyone that wasn't big on the Johnny T signing at the time.  At least not on this board.  I seem to recall Gord Miller saying he thought it was a mistake, but other than that I thought it was universally praised at the time?

If the Leafs get two other guys named Peter and Angelo would we be ok?

Given how great Carter Hart has looked I was shocked that he wasn't a first rounder.  Same draft the Leafs took Korshkov ahead of him.

There's a goalie taken in the first round that seems to be missing from this list...I just can't put my finger on it...

Tuuukkkaaaaa... so that makes it 3 of 14 goalies drafted in the 1st round who have won a Vezina. I'll take the 20% chance Askarov could do that.

Who's missing?  I took that list from a website so I make no claims to it's reliability :D

Damn, how did they forget Rask?
