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.

- Ihatebrianburke


No.
We want BOTH Iggy and Jero, and we want Wildschwein also.

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

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

No-one, anywhere, ever, said this. But cool story

Has anyone heard anything more about the team offering the killer, 1 yr. 14 Million offer-sheet?

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

I'll take Iggy, we can unleash him when UG shows up

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.

@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.

- Kinger34


Not even close for 8 years. He would want 3 million MORE than that. For just 5-6 years he will want 10+...and 7 or 8 years will drive that up by a million or two a year. (something like 7 years at 11.5, 8 years at 13).

So...8 year deal WON'T be done 5 or 6 the max I think.

Leafs would have to increase food budget for Keith Tkachunk.

Not possible. We don't have the draft picks required to give up as compensation for signing an RFA.

Publically it's Yzerman. Behind the scenes at 2 am it's Chia. According to my Western Conference source.

Again why I said not sure that's how it's going to play out though.

And he's not worth that much money anyway.

If Marner signs a 2 year deal, he's OUT of the Leafs after that contract ends lol

Maybe he'll sign a one year deal. Then we can sign Hall once that contract expires.

Relax people, EK is just throwing out random years for Marners contract. That way he can say he first reported it.

Sens. Then Eugene will file chapter 11 and the Sens will be relocated to Quebec. Marner will get fat on poutine and retire.

Exactly, not 8 x 9.75 as somebody posted. 9.75 MIGHT work on a 4-5 year deal, on 8 years, not even close...

Leafs will wait for McDavid to be a UFA and sign him for 20 million AAV.

Yeah, uh, I think he would still be an RFA.

Geezus Christ can you people read and comprehend?

I didn't say he was signing for 8 x 9.75. I said that Leafs fans would love it if he did, but that's not how things are going to play out.
