The player's union will never allow Marner to sign a 2 year deal. End of Story.

Making money hand over fist doesn't make the Leafs urgent at all. Any GM can do what Dubas has done if they had his purse.

Vancouver is a rich cap team, yet they have over $20 million tied up in pure crap players.

So No.

I can't wait for Alzner to play 3 more years in the AHL at $3.625 million cap hit per.

How long can the Leafs wait till Marner cap gets to a point where the Leafs can no longer fit Marner under the cap.
Suppose they would need to trade someone before that happens. Marner potential cap hit this year could be 14 to 16 mil depending when the Leafs' sign him.

Yeah that's not happening.

The concern goes like this...

Take for example, the Aho contract that Montreal offered... the compensation was only 1-2-3 picks. If that was offered in late November, the Leafs could not afford to match because of this year's cap hit.

Here's the thing...

1) The Leafs could still make a trade to free up the space to match.
2) Why would Marner sign such a contract. I seriously doubt that the Leafs haven't already offered more.


The sticky situation happens if some team offers something like 10.5 * 5 in November. That becomes quite difficult to match and the compensation is 1-1-2-3. I have to think an offer in that neighbourhood has already been made by the Leafs, or close it. If the Leafs are even close, I doubt Marner wants to leave Toronto for a small difference.

Finally, a team has to have the money, and the cap space, and they better know they can sign all their own RFA's in the next couple years

It is difficult to see a scenario where Marner leaves via an offersheet.

Marner only wants to play for the Laffs. His Dad and himself have made that clear

Possibly, but I think he reads Hockeybuzz, and he knows leafs fans have a short memory. If I am Marner, I bet on myself... Hold out for max$$, join the team in Dec, produce over a PPG, be adored by leafs nation again...
- dunner84


Doesn’t sign until Dec, the contract gets smaller as the days of the season pass by.

If the queefs are offering 8 and some team is offering 10.5, does he *still* only want to play for the Loafs?

I've been told by many Leaf fans that Cody Ceci is a legit top 4 defense men!!
