I think the big name RFAs start signing this week. This includes Marner.

Darren Dreger is such a joke. I can't believe he still has a job.

I don't see Marner signing an 8x10. Most of the info out there is his camp is looking for a 3x10. If I were the Leafs, I wouldn't do that deal at all. 8x10? Sure, but a bridge deal over 8 million would be disastrous. If Marner does not sign in time for camp, I would seriously look at trading him. If he truly wants a Matthews type contract, time to let him go.

You'll have to be more specific. Are we talking about Dildo?

Yeah, but he's using a different account.

It's pretty crazy that you can report posts on here but not PM's.

I'd just post a screen grab on here and report your own post or something. No one should be PMing anyone to kill themselves. Jesus

I have no idea how to do that. So hopefully one of the other 5 or so guys who got the same message does it.

RFA's going overboard, teams that have a shot and want to add a good player at the TDL are going to be outta luck I guess.

I'm going to apply, and when I get it you'll be a short leash. Probably be banned for 2 lifetimes by the end of the 1st week.

Great write-up Lucas!! But, I have to disagree as well. I don't think Marner will sign long-term. And, if 8 years he would want WELL OVER 10.

I think the Matthews 5 year deal has the Marner camp wanting the same. It is soooo player friendly to hit the open market so young. If Marner can get the 10 or 10.5 over 5 I think he signs it. If not, I envision a cheaper 8-9 million 3 year deal....but thinking the Leafs don't like either of those options. Thus, nothing signed yet.

If I had to make ONE guess. 3 year deal. 8.5 million.

Done the first week of the season.

I would agree with this, the one factor that has not been mentioned much is that Brayden Point has not signed either. He has similar - probably better stats with the 41 goals than Marner - even though he is a year older. If he signs for Kucherov type money which is possible, hard to justify Mitch making any more. I see bridge deals likely for both players, the best thing that could happen to both Mitch and the Leafs is after he signs a bridge deal, and he promptly fires Ferris.

I'm sticking with 10.5 x 6. I find it hard to believe Leafs will have him and Matthews up in the same year again.
