We're going to litigate the heck out of this Hyman/McAvoy hit right?

Was it an elbow?

Shoulder to chest as he skates by at almost 20% speed. McAvoy is not expecting it and as a slightly smaller person than Hyman (like -1", -1lb), goes flying.

Look how terrible it is:

Flying elbow from the top turnbuckle.

As much as the game has changed and some like the no hitters that we see thatís what irks me about yet. The Hyman hit whether it was late was questionable and not like it was a vicious hit. But now this is what we see even when itís a clean hit someone goes after another player. Itís bulls**t.

Literally no one has ever claimed to like a game without hitting.

No one.

3/4 of the Leaf's lineup would prefer it.

Andersen decided to start pulling the company line. Jesus I stayed home to watch this garbage.

Soft as butter and Can't skate with Boston's backup lineup.

Someone please tell me Gardiner is a $6m dman... I just don't see the love for this guy... I can't

Make the case for any Leaf skater tonight.

Bruins working like It's game 7, Leafs working like It's noon drop-in shinny.

Of course but as of now there is little knowledge of it???

If he legitimately wanted out, we'd know. Also, considering how rarely offer sheets actually get signed, it's really not a concern at all.

There are numerous levels between I love it here and I hate it here. I don't know Matthews but think It's entirely possible he might welcome a chance to get to the US and out of the Canadian fishbowl.  It's just as possible he loves every minute of being a Leaf. In a 3rd option a 3 year $16 million per year contract just might appeal to him as well. In the end I prefer we never see July with him available,

A Matthews offer sheet is a real concern if he makes it to July. Even more concerning is if It's massive money for only 3 years. We would be hurt by both term and money to match.

It's only a concern if Matthews has any actual interest in leaving Toronto. If not, teams can offer him the max, and it won't matter.

Of course but as of now there is little knowledge of it???

Oops, my bad.. not sure where I read the 8.1??

Thatís roughly the threshold for 2 1sts, a 2nd, and a 3rd. Hasnít been that low for 4 1sts in a few years.

I assume I just googled an older page.

6 X 7.5 is 45 million. Decide tgat by 5 years and It's 9 million per year. That's 4 firsts.

Threshold for 4 1sts this season is ~$10.2m per.

I think 6 at that salary would do it?

Would need to be  a 7 year deal at that salary level. Regardless, not happening. Not team is giving up 4 1st round picks for him.

Depending on number of years that offer could get the Leaf's 4 first round picks, I take that any day for Nylander.

No team is giving up 4 1st round picks for Nylander. A seven year offer sheet is not happening.

This has probably been discussed already but why hasn't he signed an offer sheet yet? Do people think he hasn't even been offered the amount of money he wants from one?

Because he wants to be in Toronto, long term.
Yeah but the Leafs would likely match. They wouldn't walk away from 7.5mil Nylander.
