Marner is trying to reset the market, or he's waiting on someone like Rantanen to do so. No one wants to be first.

IMO the market value for an elite winger was set by Nikita Kucherov, so take that number and do with it what you will. If Marner truly thinks he should get Matthews money, then he should be dealt.


Kucherov's deal was pretty much all UFA years, wasn't it? Marner's won't be.

Well there is that. Nonetheless, he shouldn't be getting the same coin as the team's best center/player.

Leafs lock up Kerfoot at 3.5 per/3yrs and Ceci at 4.5/1 yr. That leaves roughly $3.7 million, plus around $5.3 million once they put Nathan Horton on LTIR (last year of that, thank goodness).

That leaves almost exactly $9 million under the cap. Take it or leave it, Mitchy.

BTW, call me a tin foil hat wearer all you want but I would not be surprised if the reason the Leafs kept Ceci for one year instead of taking it to arbitration and then walking out on the ruling (as some have suggested they do, which I wish they had because HOLY SHIT would that have been one hell of an arbitration hearing). But is it possible they left a $9 million dollar window open (just for this year) to try and force Marner's hand? I wouldn't entirely rule it out. The Ceci deal doesn't have any consequences down the road for the Leafs, but it sure feels like it does with Marner.

Just read the Marlies signed Cody Franson to a PTO. Very savvy, there's almost no risk and a potentially great reward if indeed there's anything left in the tank. I think, even if he's not NHL material at this point he'll be a solid player for the Marlies.

So much for all the offer sheets heading Marner's way. :lol:

Willie Nylander takes advantage of Lou's dumbass number rules being gone and switches from 29 to 88, and even offers to pay for any Toronto fans who need to redo their jerseys.

Why’s that dumb? Probably could use some fan support after last season’s debacle.

I get it, people grow attached to a number. He was not allowed to use his for a while and now wants it back.

I like the moves they made this offseason. I think they're a better team. But how can they get Marner signed without opening another hole? I don't see it.

Horton + Hyman + Dermott on LTIR + cap space they have left enough?

I read on Twitter that Shanahan vetoed a preliminary deal. If so that’s very bad news.

Looking at capfriendly. Cap space + Horton is 9 million. Then the could go with 21man roster to get to 10.5ish. If he wants more go get an offer sheet or sit.

Matthews got a crazy good deal, lucky him. Leafs need to point to Aho now and just say yeah we got taken to the woodshed with Matthews and are not going to again.

Really should have burned the season on Nylander, the other guys now are expecting Dubas to cave.
