I don't even want to get into the contract stuff or "message sending" but even just in a hockey sense trading Marner for Laine feels like it would exacerbate the Leafs' problems, not solve them.

When does training camp start?  If the sides are close we should hopefully see a deal done soon.  It sounds like this could give the Leafs a cap problem to deal with, though.

September 13th.

The Leafs will be opening their training camp in St. John Newfoundland on Friday September 13th.

They will play eight pre-season games (well be bored after the first one, but for now that seems fun).

"We took an approach where by we would be very proactive and progressive with Calgary," Meehan told reporters at the Serge Savard Golf Tournament held west of Montreal. "We started early, and we set a position. We didn't really have to wait. We formulated a position that we thought would be fair and we gave that to Calgary probably in the early part of June.

"So we're involved in negotiations right now, but as far as I'm concerned it's not a waiting game. We made a decision in terms of what we think is fair and relevant for the player and we're working with Calgary now."

Tkachuk isn't budging from his June offers. Rantanen hasn't received an offer from Colorado all summer. Laine couldn't really care less if he played in Winnipeg or not. Marner's picking his own comparables.

You've got to think this is going to come up in the next CBA now. Give them arb rights and be done with it.

I see Darren Ferris is following his usual playbook to a T.

Maybe, sorta, probably not. For those who aren't on twitter:


I'm guessing this is more like when Nylander skated with teams in Europe. There's almost no way he actually signs with a European team prior to December 1st. If he gets injured he's screwed, and it also removes the threat of an offer sheet (he'd need to clear waivers if he signed with a team that wasn't the Leafs).

To be fair I was standing on the shoulders of giants when I made this call.

If multiple guys go as long as Nylander then that might prompt some people towards change but a bunch of guys being unsigned a month before training camp begins isn't going to be a big deal.
