a number of the RFAs are growing more and more impatient with the waiting game


If true (a big IF, admittedly), then maybe they should adjust their salary expectations.

They don't deserve more than the veteran players who have put up big numbers for 5+ years, won individual awards, won Cups, etc

Not sure I agree with this only because majority of those players are past their primes and will be paid for the past.

Ek, is it possible that the Bruins and McAvoy have already agreed to a bridge deal, before the bad blood gets any worse, but they are waiting to announce it until Friday, which serves two purposes:

1) Friday's are apparently when stuff goes down.
2) By delaying a few more days the bad blood between OTHER RFAs and their teams gets even worse, possibly leading to permanent league-altering consequences.

Excellent questions. I am looking forward to the answers.

I don't necessarily disagree, but do you think it is better to pay now for stuff that hasn't happened yet and may never happen? The Leafs will have 4 players in double digits, probably 5 when Rielly gets paid in a couple years. So far, they haven't shown they can win a series, nevermind a cup.

Sure, some older players are washed up and overpaid. And some younger players will become superstars and deserve to get paid like it.

But it seems like any decent young player (under team control) wants 8+ million.

it's been a trend that's been growing since the lockout, understandably so , players and agents are figuring out they need to make their money while they can still stake and be relevant, before they become thirty year olds looking for jobs in nhl.

Ek, what happened to the McAvoy bridge deal? Still getting closer and closer? Is he one of the RFAs growing impatient or is it Proorov? What's Yzerman's plan with Brayden Point? So many questions...
- uofcguy


Yzerman is with the Red Wings, he hasn't been the GM of Tampa Bay for quite some time. He stepped down as GM September 11th, 2018.

Is a treasure trove bigger than a haul? If they are different does it matter how premium the assets are? What about a buttload?

Luongo one of the great all time goalies that fell short of the big prize in hockey. Except for Olympic gold.

But screw the Panthers and their forced official retirement to trigger cap recapture. LTIR and pay him what a joke to have made the play for Panarin.

why you try to give credit to your maple leafs ? the leafs have no fan base outside of Toronto like MTL ... you guys are not even close to us... funny how the leafs fan think they are equal to us in certain way.... maybe in a 100 years my friend..MAYBE !
- Zo0by

Lmao, the inferiority complex that a few hab fans have towards the leafs is quite funny. The leafs sell out to Florida on a Thursday night, they don’t need Saturday to do it,😉

You can find idiot fans on both sides. Maybe a tad more on the leafs' side, but still...

Give your head a shake.. there are a ton of both Leaf fans and Habs fans everywhere you go. But honestly who even cares, it's not a competition lol.
