Way less money than was predicted. Analysts were saying he'd get $7M

And yet here we are with Codi Ceci making more money. This is atrocious.

Seeing a lot of "Ceci cost the Leafs Gardiner!" takes online, but I think it's more accurate to say that Muzzin did. Took his cap space for this season and his LD2 spot in the line-up.

With the benefit of hindsight and assuming Gardiner would have been open to this deal here, would I have passed on Muzzin at last years deadline? Probably. I doubt Muzzin signs a deal comparable to this and we would have kept some extra trade chips on hand for future deals.

If this deal was at all on the table for the Leafs, they're fools for not having taken it.

Was not expecting the 'canes to be after him, but they just got a good d-man for a bargain.

I'm glad Jake found a landing spot but I'll wait until after the season to decide the Leafs screwed up not signing a 29 year-old defenseman with back problems.

If they didn't acquire Ceci, they'd have Zaitsev.

They didn't need to retain Ceci.

He had a QO, they would have had to find someone to take him on.

I believe they could have walked away from QO? I think you could find someone to take 1yr of Ceci.

I don't know why more people aren't grasping this. Ceci would have accepted his qualifying offer if the Leafs elected to take him to arbitration.

No, they couldn't have walked away. Wasn't an option.

Maybe they could have found a taker, maybe not. Without taking anything back? I'm not so sure they could have.

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