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...
- hawk35


9.75 he might settle for at 3 years or less.

This deal is going to be ugly. They all are, except point, who will sign for at least 1,5 less than the market because of taxes.

Hall was just on The Fan 590 and said he always wanted to be a Leaf.

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.

- Kinger34


He may not be WORTH that kinda coin...but 8 years will cost...that is THREE extra UFA years over the 5 year deal Matthews inked. If Marner signs 7 or 8 years you are talking the 12-13 a year range. 5-6 years 9.5-11 range. That's what it will take. Might not be fair....but the Matthews and Nylander deals have set the "Dubas Bar"....and Marner wants his share.....it will happen. Likely, in pre-season, or first couple of weeks of season.

I have heard, but not publicly, that if you pay an extra 20.00, CaptEO will remove the Season Ticket Holder tag from under your name.

I'll tell you publicly that one more ban and I get an autographed photo of Colton Scissons.

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

He'll go the way of the offersheet like Nylander, Matthews, Johnsson and Kapanen before him

Maybe he'll sign a one year deal. Then we can sign Hall once that contract expires.
- Kinger34


If Hall isn't re-signed by December he'll be traded. Shero isn't the idiot that Lou Lams is.

By "just on" I'm assuming you meant in 2015. I don't see an interview with him on there any time recently

Please excuse Garf. He drifts in and out of the past and present. He still thinks the Sabres are getting McDavid.

OK I think Anderson (and how he plays ) is more important to the fortunes of the leaf's than any other player on that team. Marner is a great player but I do not think you want to go with 3 players in the 11 million range as I think the Marner camp is pushing for if you are the GM. At some point you say to yourself I am done and you trade Marner to get someone to play with Reilly (and maube + assets) save some cap space and Presto the leafs finally beat the bruins in the playoffs.

No he's not.

Ever notice these theories of these young players leaving the Leafs never work out. Nylander is still a Leaf. LOL

It's still the McEichel draft where both players are of equal talent

Last time the Leafs won a playoff series, Joe Nieuwendyk was playing with a wooden stick and Mathews was 6 years old!!!
Wooden sticks!! Ha, thats long ago.

The Leafs should have gone to Marner at the end of the year and said here are the deals we are comfortable signing. 8 years, 10 million. If you want less years, take 500,000 off per year

7x9.5, 6x9, 5x8.5, 3x7.5, 2x7

It’s real easy if you just be honest, upfront and don’t back down. They should have dealt Nylander last year to prove they wouldn’t be pushed around or bend to the players demands. That is where the Leafs went sideways.

Response to trolling

At least RippedFuel identifies what team he cheers for, you don't have the balls to do it.

RippedFuel is better than you, let that sink in.

I don't disagree with you at all here.

I don't think he's worth it from a current day Leafs' perspective; in that they can't afford him at the price unless it is the 9.5 range on a 5-6 year deal.

Hey guys. Just signed in today to see the details of the imminent bridge deal for McAvoy. Did the late night call with a GM mess up the deal?
