I was hoping it would be closer to $1 mil, but don't hate it.

Yeah 1.5 is maybe a touch more than I want if he plays 4th line but if we get some 2nd PP/3rd line use that?s not bad.   Hopefully it shuts up the Dubas only signs skill

The right-wing is open after Nylander/Marner so there's a chance he's playing 3RW minutes too if he's up to it.

He'll play. And I'm so sock of listening to the Dubas plan doesn't include tough players.

There was clearly a lot of interest here from the get go. Micah seems to think Simmonds is worth the $1.5m. Wonder if he can play on third line in a pinch. Wonder how he fell off a cliff so fast though, kinda weird. Maybe the Leafs staff can rehabilitate him a bit.

Yeah, I think he's 4th line so maybe twice what you'd want to spend. He used to be pretty good at killing penalties...

He says he's healthier then he's been in a few years.

$1.5M is pretty reasonable for a quality bottom 6 winger.

Ya they still have Marleau's cryogenic tank around.

Not to disrespect your post because I seen that he said that too but I doubt he'd say "my body is wrecked"... ;)
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
