Would love to see Duszak, Räsänen and Gordeev all join the Marlies in the next weeks.  Then we can sit out guys like Subban, LoVerde, Jardine and Rubins and give these guys some playing time.
Don't know if Mac H will be able to join them as well. Guess it depends on the OHL playoffs (same for Gordeev I guess).

A very good article in The Athletic today on Duszak.

Duszak officially signs his PTO. 

I do wonder one thing:  Is there a maximum amount of money you can earn on a PTO?

Did the Leafs use some financial muscle to get him?

His NHL deal starts NEXT year, at the maximum ELC of 925k x 2 years (since he'll be 22).  Includes 92,500 in signing bonus money.  In the AHL he'll earn 70k.

If he signed an NHL deal that kicked in this year:  ELC of 925k x 3 years (still 21).  He'd get the 92,500 in signing bonus money, but only a small portion of the 70k (ie prorated amount).

Can they pay him more than 100k on his PTO?  I don't have clear information on PTO salary/signing bonus limits for AHL deals.  IE, can they exceed the Signing bonus and prorated salary limits of the NHL ELC rules?

Maybe they didn't need to back the brinks truck up to sign him, but I do wonder if they COULD with the top NCAA/CHL/European free agents by doing this.

I'm pretty sure players on a PTO only get a per diem and have hotel/travel covered.

I think he just liked the program the Leafs have going here (Marlies amenities and access are basically NHL-level), the opportunity the Leafs weak-RD depth presents, and former teammate and good buddy Jeremy Bracco probably put in a good word.

True Dat, supposedly Bracco and him are not just friends but "Best Friends" big time.

That has to be a big selling point for guys who are a year+ away from being a clear NHL player.   Hopefully we can see fruits of that system so that other players want to follow down the same path.
