Sounds like a player who wants to win a Cup to me...

I was not expecting him to sign for $700k at all. Even Koivu got $1.5mil.

Well how about that. I like this signing but I didn?t think it would happen.

I think I like it even more because Burke was crapping all over the idea yesterday.

Definitely and all the other crappers. If this move can allow Kerfoot to go up on the wing, bonus!

Yeah, I'm shocked at 700k. 3rd line center?

I figured he'd want/get closer to Simmonds deal.

Definitely the funnest deal of the offseason. I assume we can now sign Chara for another 700k.

It's gonna be really weird seeing him in a Leafs uniform. He played so long for Boston and then SJ you got used to seeing him in those jerseys. This is like Ron Francis 2.0

Hyman-Matthews-Marner
Kerfoot-Tavares-Nylander
Mikheyev-Thornton-______
Robertson-Spezza-______

With the blanks behind filled by likely Simmonds and one of Engvall, Vesey, Barabanov, Korshkov, Boyd, Anderson, or one of the other many randos we have under contract.

Chara can suck it.
