Thread reaches 100 pages or he signs. Which first?


I think the real question should be does Marner sign at all this season or does he sit out an entire year?

And does he get a Red Ryder B.B. Gun for Christmas this year???

I think 6-7yrs at 8.5mil. Then we sign Gardner on a one yr cheap deal.  I have a hunch this is all about squeezing Gardner in. After all he is still out there, and wants to stay. Then our D would be unreal, and we could take a real run at the cup.


Marner turned down 80 million over eight years, he's not signing for anywhere near what you suggest.

Nobody knows what was actually offered and what was turned down.

Ok, that's true, it's just the number that was reported. Either way he's obviously looking for a lot more than nutman's figures, is that alright to say?

Yeah I think it's more than fair to say that if 8.5 on a long term deal was what it would take from Marner's end that a deal would be done already. Predicting that sort of deal basically reads as predicting that Marner's team will just totally collapse and accept a deal that wasn't even as good as what Aho got.

Interesting speculation from McKenzie that he believes Leafs would actually welcome an offer sheet at this point to resolve the matter one way or another

I would love to see a petition started by us, and expanded to all Leaf fans everywhere.  We simply tell Mitch to sign a contract by a certain date (how about at a fair 9.5 Million) or we will boycott all of his advertising exploits in the future, we will simply say to advertisers, we are not interested in his mug selling us shit...let him play hockey for his millions.

I'm not sure what would be sadder, being that upset that a hockey player hasn't signed by mid-July or the implication that if he does sign that you'd be buying products just because he endorsed them.

I already boycott Coca-Cola or whatever energy drink he endorses, but that's only because of that damn polar bear.

Let me get this straight, you think that your client, one of the wealthiest and most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante, who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands, and your plan is to blackmail this person?

Good luck.
