    1- learn what ~ means 2- zaitsev is certainly not a player Dubas is married to. If his salary is a problem he is gone. We have tons of talent in the system, we can build a d-core out of elc’s and bridge contracts (Sandin, Liljegren, Dermott, etc) Nylander just has to decide if he wants to be a part of this or not. Small sample size, but Kapanen has shown he can take his spot. Theres no way that Dubas isn’t offering him at least Larkin/Ehlers money, so I can only assume that Nylander is being greedy.

    Nice article here about what other NHL executives are thinking about Nylander and his expectations. https://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/2018/10/19/william-nylanders-bargaining-power-with-leafs-on-thin-ice-rival-executives-say.html Basically other execs think he's asking for way too much money as well.

    Dubas is surrounded with the best stat/cap guys and believe me, he either had a few options for Willy and his agent to sign or to view because I do not feel he would travel that far just to talk to him without showing him some contracts that work for both parties by either accepting one that allows Willy to be playing for us at whatever price and term or to sign something that allows suits him being traded. Sure we could look at it as to what Babcock did with Matthews and travel to talk to see where his head is at and face to face him, but do you really feel that Dubas did just that? Without offering anything or seeing if they could work with certain contracts. It is done all the time, where people view different contracts and choose one to be part of the work force, or they do not choose one because of the mountain they stand on and do not feel if they sign those, that they were fair to them. Yup, they have to the end of Nov to decide but I believe Dubas did it to speed up the process by presenting him something. Has nothing to do with getting a reaction. This

    geez and even a dumbass person like me can understand what Kev wrote....the thing is playing in the US has its perks depending on state to state, in Canada you are taxed on every province but it still varies by %. Players want more money to live in Canada as they all have to pay provincial taxes...unlike players living in F;orida where there is no state tax can take less ask Stammer.

    No, that's not how money works. How am I still having to explain this? If I was given the option between $13 CDN and $10 USD (or whatever the exact amount of money is after conversion), it makes NO DIFFERENCE. It is the exact same amount of money. Being paid the same salary in USD vs CDN is an entirely different argument.

    Gardiner un/fortunately sees the writing on the wall that his time is up in Leafland. I as most everyone with a brain hopes that someone will come calling for him and make a substantial offer for his services. Maybe Anaheim can have him back i am sure they have a few good D prospects or a Solid D in return.
  10. Maybe Disney is planning to only air it on their streaming service. That's the likely scenario here.

    What will 52 point UFA defenceman Jake Gardiner ask for this off-season. $6 million? $7 million? I know ...... I know ..... he can GTFO..... Funny how this works innit?

    Where is Nylander?

    Correct. While nylander played almost exclusively with Matthews (when healthy). The point was the two players (and their numbers) aren't comparable. Cause they're not, ----------- But speaking of contract years, I've mentioned nylander's numbers not improving over the previous year (same pts, fewer goals), unlike any of his comps. When you take into account the difference in scoring in the league between the 2 years, it looks a bit worse. In 16-17 nylander's 61pts were tied for 35th overall, with several players incl kadri. In 17-18 his 61pts were good for a 6 way tie for 66th overall. Scoring was up, just not nylander's.

    Matthews add $.5-1 million marner add $1 million zaitsev add $4.5 million Now you are down to $20 million with 15 players to sign and you have exactly 2 nhl Defence men. Building the majority of the team from close to the league minimum salary is a fools errand.
  14. Luke Cage is done on Netflix now too. I have to wonder if this is the end of the Netflix MCU or if they are just looking to go with the Defenders. I mean they did cancel plans for a season 2 of the Defenders already but maybe plans changed? I hope the Netflix shows aren't all done. Even if they move on from some and bring some new shows in I would be okay with it.

    McKenzie reckons the Leafs want a five year deal with Matthews.

    Cause apparently neither side wants this deal to get done for 7.25... realistically though, if we sign the big three to 4 and 5 year deals, and we don’t win or at least come close to winning in that time span... it’s probably a good time to re-evaluate anyways. I’d sign all three of them to shorter term contracts at less money and see what happens. Maybe with Matthews being the exception, but that’s more on him than us.

    seems doable so why is everyone's panties in a knot?

    Our situation is pretty solid. Almost all of Marleau’s salary for next year is a signing bonus, I think it’s only 1m in actual pay during the season. That’s the type of contract that floor teams love, 6.25 hit but only 1m paid out. We can move him easily next summer after we pay signing bonus. Tavares - 11 Matthews - ~12 Marner - ~9 Kadri - 4.5 Andersen - 5 Rielly - 5 ~46.5 there. Probably ~7.25 for nylander. Thats ~53.25 for 7 players. 26.25 million for the other 16.

    Where is Nylander?

    So lemme get this str8 46 Million dollars in Tavares, Nylander, Marner, and Matthews and keeping Andersen out of a possible 80 million dollar cap hit is not possible if we fill the rest of the roster with cap friendly subs? I mean Rielly and Kadri are right now at reasonable prices so i can see us filling the rest with ELC's or million dollar prospects. we can deal with RFA's when the time comes to keep our flow of low priced good players in the cupboard.

    Depending on how negotiations are in fact going, that could be massively untrue. Sometimes you have to dig-in, or at least appear to.
  21. Mantis Toboggan

    Where is Nylander?

    There’s a couple of facts that play into it. His dad, who is involved with this, has been referred to as a selfish, me first type guy. Not a bad person, but not a team player. There was an article I read the other day that talked about that. Second, his agent is known to pull shit like this. This isn’t the first time one of his clients has had a difficult time negotiating a contract. Third, it’s naive to think that Dubas didn’t go there prepared with a couple of ideas. Of course we’re speculating and will never know because none of us were there, but he wouldn’t be doing his job if he showed up with just one offer.
  22. Commissar Yarrick

    Where is Nylander?

    Probably because ultimately we're Leafs fans and not Nylander fans. Also, some people simply lack the requisite grey matter to maintain a consistent or logical position so they just say whatever they think will get a reaction at the time.
  23. §andman

    Where is Nylander?

    Why do fans continue to paint the Leafs in such a positive light and do the opposite for Nylander? There's no facts in it besides making up that Dubas supposedly presented a few offers to Nylander. These narratives are becoming fiction.

    The year before he signed his contract, Draisaitl spent 50% of ES his time with McDavid (aka on the wing). https://frozenpool.dobbersports.com/frozenpool_linecombo.php?select=F&forward=EDM%3A3987%3ALEON%3ADRAISAITL&games=2016-2017%3AR%3A99&period=ALL&situation=EV i don’t care about last year because the extension had kicked in
  25. Doc J

    Where is Nylander?

    A] Nylander and Draisaitl aren’t comparables. One is a back to back 70 pt (54g, 147p) center. The other is William Nylander. B] And for every shitty, clueless org (EDM, BUF, ARZ, etc), there’s the work of solid, well run clubs like NSH, TB, STL, etc. Teams are no more beholden to what one group does than the other.
