Dubas needs to stand firm on these guys. If he doesn't want to be here, trade him! There are lots of fab players that would love to come to the Leafs with that extra cap money. Trade Marner and offer sheet Takchuk.

Dude every RFA hasn't signed. No need to rush a trade.

$10.5 million X 5 or 6 years. Conversation over.

If I am one of the top RFAs I would be looking at a 2 year bridge deal in the 6-7M range. You get paid real good money and in those two years Seattle enters and the new television contract kicks in which means more money so they can then hit an even bigger contract then. Why sign away all those UFA years look at McKinnion, Pastrnak, Johnny Hockey, etc. who are already vastly underpaid from their 6-8 year deals they signed.

If I am the hockey team I don't want this, I want the max years. Will probably be like this going forward unless something changes in the bargaining agreement.

MacKinnon and Pastrnak both signed before their huge breakout years.

Marner at 94 points
Point at 92 points 41g

have already had their breakout years so they won't be signing for $6-$7 million. These guys will sign 5 or 6 year deals for big money. $10million range. And they will be young enough as UFA to sign another long term massive deal.

Can't see Point getting more the Kucherov on the Lightning so he would have to come in under 9.5M. But I would take 5 years at 9M for Point. Same thing with Marner, I just can't see him getting more then Tavares or Matthews but I guess 9-10M for him is a great deal as well.

@stammerman - if Marner signs with term for 9-10 mil/season I think all of Leafs nation will be happy.

8 years 9.75 per would be wonderful. Not sure that's how it's going to play out though.

Leafs fans be like "He's gonna sign by the end of July for 8M x 7 years."

.... And then August 13th rolls around.

The Leafs already made up their minds internally. That was a hard deadline. Now there is too much bad blood and they will have to trade him for pennies on the dollar.
I will offer you Russell, Gagner, Manning and one of Iggy/Jero. Not both.

Mitch would be crazy to sign for 2 years, take the 8 yr deal and run. Could be injured tomorrow playing with his Tonka trucks and it could all be over.

Meanwhile.......

I wouldn't let the two men mentioned on my scouting staff let alone be rookie GMs.

pass

Wild fans - let the owner be GM like in Ottawa.
It can work.

If we take Iggy ( giant turd ) you’ll need to throw in McDavid.
