That long back and forth between Jonas and Mirtle, echoed sometimes here, is getting its answer: looks less and less likely that Marner/Leafs did, in fact, reset the high-end RFA market. Implications of that... not great!

None of the big deals Tampa has signed in recent years fit into the league's salary structure. It's not really a shocker that this one doesn't either.

That’s how you re-reset the market

Less income tax and bridge deal or no this makes the Marner deal look like the Leafs got bent over bad.

And far less likely those "offer sheets" rumours likely were for much less than what Marner signed for.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Yep.  It's fine if the market was truly "re-set" but if you're the only team playing by the new rules, it ain't good.

How does this make the Eichel or Aho deals look?

This deal is the outlier right now. Not Marner. I mean, Point outscored Boeser by like 40 points and got a million more than he did.

This deal confirms that the Marner deal was atrocious.

Not that any confirmation was needed, but yikes.

Not to mention Marner's endorsement will make up for the tax difference, but that doesn't seem to count??

Does the Hedman deal make the Karlsson and Doughty deals bad? Does the Stamkos deal make the Tavares deal bad? How about Panarin and Kucherov?

The idea that the Leafs are alone in not paying Tampa prices is demonstrably false.

It was always an ego thing for Marner's camp.  He wanted to be recognized in the same territory as Matthews and Tavares so hence the big ticket contract.  It is what it is, our team is solid for this season despite the overpay, nothing we can do now.

Are any of those players Restricted Free Agents?

There is no spin that makes 6 x $11 million look even passable when a superior player got 3 x $6.75 after the Marner contract was signed.

Dubas had plenty of political/fan capital to allow Marner to sit until he decided to bring his demands into the realm of reasonability. Instead he ended up with a deal that puts the team at a competitive disadvantage in terms of cap flexibility.

Remember when there was talk about the 3rd year of a potential Marner deal being $13mil?

Why does that matter? If the rest of the league is paying significantly higher for their UFA's then Tampa is, why is it surprising that the same is true with RFA's?

There is no spin that makes 6 x $11 million look even passable when a superior player got 3 x $6.75 after the Marner contract was signed.

Sorry, I forgot these were the only two contracts in the NHL. Carry on.

Dubas had plenty of political/fan capital to allow Marner to sit until he decided to bring his demands into the realm of reasonability. Instead he ended up with a deal that puts the team at a competitive disadvantage in terms of cap flexibility.

Or he paid roughly the going rate around the league for every team but one.
