I saw Kipper in Yorkville eating dinner recently. No chance we ever let Matthews go.

Getting signed to an offer sheet does not equal leaving. 

 

It’s just a tool agents can use to get their clients paid max dollars. Which is their job. Their job is not to manage the leafs cap.  

 

The more this season progresses, the less likely Nylander will be a leaf, because Matthews and Marner are absolutely lighting it up and will get paid some of Nylander’s $$.

Think the point is, Dubas is slow playing Nylander, if he slow plays AM he risks that he gets sheeted. If he wants his signature on a contract early he has to pony up large. 

Big challenge to have Nylander, Marner and AM all due big contracts within 15 months of signing JT. 

There won't be any hard line with Matthews.  He'll get what he asks for. Few players are worth the max.  He is.  Hopefully he'll be okay with few million less but if not they'll pay him.

An offer sheet for Matthews is a very real possibility....although, Toronto would match it anyway.

It is business, and other teams who have the cap space would be stupid not to make an attempt.

That said, Toronto would match the offer, and on top of that, the team that makes the offer sheet risks pissing off the richest team in the League, and that's a war you don't really want to get into IMHO

Sure it’s possible, but I don’t think Matthews will get there.   

 

but if he does, you have to look at the options.  the teams with the cap space to offer sheet matthews to something we wouldnt match (so AT LEAST over 13 mil per season x 7... and tbh we might still match that) will be bottom feeding teams because no competitive team has that kind of cap space to burn.    now if a bottom team with tons of cap space throws that kind of offer out, they give up, what? is it still 4 first round picks?  

so which bottom team, potentially lottery team, will give up their next 4 first round picks?  it is highly unlikely, but yes, it is always possible.

Forget teams....it will really be Arizona....because Arizona could go right to the 20% cap max and still make out like bandits. Hometown hero, lighting it up in the desert, would be worth every cent.

 

If they did offer 7 years at $15 million, that would suck for you and I and not in a fellatio kind of suck

If one does happen, Leafs will match it and realistically speaking, gambling 4 firsts on one player alone is a huge risk that could potentially backfire in a big way. The team could still continue to suck, or the player ends up going down with a significant injury. These are things a GM has to take into consideration before making such a bold move.

Really? Gosh I actually never thought about that. I just assumed it was a simple win where you get a generational player for the contract you offer. Wow...this changes everything

Looks like Bob McCown is on the Matthews offer sheet bandwagon; also saying that Arizona should offer sheet Matthews for max cap.

One reason why small market teams don’t do offer sheets is because the owners of those teams need revenue sharing to survive and if you’re Arizona and you max cap offer sheet Matthews, you dismantle the rationale for revenue sharing.

Sometimes people fail to see past the surface - the owners run billion dollar businesses, you don’t piss on other billionaires or multi-billion dollar media and technology companies for a hockey player. McCown should stick to his shitty hot takes about the Jays.

Considering the state of the Coyotes franchise, even as a local boy I don't see the appeal to sign there.

He’s not even going to make it to July 1st without a contract so it doesn’t matter. The kid is having he time of his life right now. You think he’s gonna bail to go play with Clayton Keller for an extra mil a year? His parents basically live in Toronto. Hometown or not, no one WANTS to play in arizona.

Agree. Matthews will get a monster contract. Close to McDavid's given it's 2 years later and the cap will have gone up over $5 mil last year and this year.

The difference between Matthews and Nylander? Matthews is way better and will be a top 3 player in the league for the next decade no matter who he plays with. Matthews' existence is the only reason Nylander can even be asking for more than $6 mil per year at this point.

I can't believe this is even a topic of conversation.

We’re starting to feel some guilt about stealing Johnny T from the Islanders.... but even he gave that shit hole of a franchise 7 years under Wang and Snow.
