i read that there is issues with how the contract would be structured.
signing bonuses and NMC etc.

doesnt sound like so far stl is willing to play ball in regards to those things.
not all teams can hand over huge $$ signing bonuses...in 2020

He doesn’t want the $ in 2020. He wants it at the end if the contract so he gets a cash payout if he gets bought out.

- Leafs Trade William Nylander to the Anaheim Ducks.
For
RHD Josh Manson ($4.1M), Ryan Kesler $6.8M) and Max Jones (ELC)

Anaheim does it to shed salary (Kesler making too much for owners to like – when he’s on LTIR) and they gain a potential superstar forward in Willie.

- Leafs then trade Freddy Anderson to Arizona (With maybe a pick or prospect)
For
Darcy Kuemper (4.5/2yrs), Jacob Chychrun ($4.6M/5yr)

Arizona does it to shed salary and they receive a starting goalie only earning $1M in salary this year.

- Offer Petro $8-8.5M

Leafs Lose:
William Nylander
Freddy Anderson
Maybe a 3-4th round pick

[b]Leafs Gain:
Alex Pietroangelo ($8.25M/ 6-7 years?)
Jacob Chychrun ($4.6/5 years)
Josh Manson ($4.1/2 Yrs)
Darcy Kuemper ($4.5/2 yrs)
Max Jones (ELC/1 year)
Ryan Kesler LTIR Contract ($6.875/2yrs)

Blues have 5.13 mil to sign 2 players. AP and Dunn. Going to be tough to do that.

They'll likely try to trade Steen. Maybe teh Bozek. He has 1 more year left on his contract.

Bottom line is, if he wants to be a Leaf and if it's $9M or less, you do it without a second thought.

If it's more $$$ you think about it over and over and should probably still do it.

right and I worded that wrong...in 2020 not many teams are looking to guarantee huge chunks of money that way...it would take another clarkson buyout proof type thing to give a team an advantage

I'd take a flyer on Bozak as the #3 C.

He'd look good in the Leafs jersey. People already been busy photoshopping his head onto a Leafs jersey:

I think so. He was always one step behind Coffee, Bourque, Chelios and Leetch in his days but I think he was always in that discussion. HOF'er first vote.

He's a 3rd line centre. He plays 15 minutes a night of almost all OZS' and puts up 35-50 points. It's all he does...that and win face-offs. *Bolded as a 1st line C lol
