My main point was just that the ways in which a team can disicpline a player are laid out in SPCs, not the CBA.

Right and what I'm saying is that the fact that the CBA specifies a Commissioner's power to do these things tells me that there really isn't a comparable team mechanism. What, to me, the article from PPP confirmed(although again without reading theSPC) is that there is no specific mechanism by which a team can suspend a player for as broad a concept as off-ice conduct and that the ways in which they can suspend a player have to be pretty specific and pre-registered with the league.

Wow, lunch breaks arrives and I check in again and see you guys have been doing some research. Well done.

Seems like it's still not clear whether the Leafs could suspend him for conduct unbecoming.

As for you, nutman, the mooning thing is purely secondary.  He allegedly was with a group of intoxicated males who tried to enter the locked car of a single female.  If true, that is very serious, whether you've emerged from your cave or not.

Again, assuming it happened the way it's been presented, Matthews is lucky nobody actually touched her in any way.  If they had, his career might well have been over ... and no, I'm not hysterical or exaggerating.


OK ... That is not good, lets hope he was just there and not part of the act. This I did not know, I will hold my opinion on it until the team finishes there investigation, and updates us.

I don't smoke nor ever did. But a little Humor, and you young guns start crying. Like I said Wow!!!!..  Although I do have to give you babys some credit, as Holloween is still a go as long as you don't dress up like anyone or anything.  Because that would be some kind of harassment toward someone. Dare I say the P word. hahahaha. where did we go so wrong to make so many sensitive people.

All I can say is WOW!!!!.  This world is going nuts.   Going back to the 70s and 80s if you didn't get mooned, you saw someone else get it, at least once a week.  friggen crybabys, good for you Matthews.

Great post.... The greed in sports is just nuts.  A first big contract for him should be max  8x8.5.  There is a defense to sign next season.  Why force your team to give away a chance to win more then just one cup by not having the cap funds left to pay everyone.

My choice is max 8.5mil per  for 6-8 yrs. Or sit him out.

I will say good bye and good luck. As for the Leafs defense, I am very happy with it.

more then 8.5 and we are over paying. so 8.5 over six yrs is the deal we offer take it or leave it. I think that is a fair deal.

I still believe there is a Gardner factor playing out in this Marner contract. The Leafs want him and I think as well with him we will have by far the best six pack in the NHL.

What the last 24 hours have hammered home is, it was way easier being a hockey fan when I was a kid.  You didn't have to worry about cap hits, contract values etc.  You either had good players or bad players and whether your favorite guy made $10M or $1M it didn't really matter cause they were part of the team.  Every trade was only scrutinized insofar as the play on the ice.  Now it's a whole different ballgame, being cap compliant, having dead money on the cap, sending guys up and down for cap savings etc.  It's all so stupid.  I just want to see them play.
   


So so so true. I AGREE 100%.

Say what you want but before I leave on my vacation, I need to say this.  I think all the players today are greedy, I think Marner should take at most 6.5 for 7-8 yrs up front like the usual, then in his next deal he goes after the bigger money.  This way all the players can be signed to a fair deal leaving the team to build a contender for years to come. So say at the end of the day when the deal is signed Mitch has 40 mil to toss in the bank, what the heck is wrong with that. invest well and he is set for life plus he would still have a better payday in 7-8 years. and some very nice rings i am sure of.

But we all know shit does not work that way anymore.  so I will still hope for 8.5 and a cheap one year deal to grab Gardner, then I would say we will be "thee team" to beat for the cup.

Cheers and enjoy your summer everyone..
