<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>exo2769</b></div><div>I'm ok with this signing. To me, it's easier to accept giving big money to players that have already done something as compared to the young up and coming players that haven't done anything yet. #1C on a Stanley Cup Winning Team means something. WAS got him to accept a 5 year contract when I'm sure he could have got an 8 year somewhere else. (Higher total dollars to him) I would have thought a little less than $9.2M, but not too much less.</div></div>

To me, it's easier to accept giving big money to players who are likely to improve over the duration of their contract:

I didn't like (still don't like) the <strong>Matthews + Marner + Nylander</strong> contracts at all ... however:

<strong>Marner </strong>(22) = <strong>1.28</strong> points per game = <strong>105</strong> point / <strong>30</strong> goal pace per 82 games = <strong>Career highs.</strong>
<strong>Matthews </strong>(21) = <strong>1.21</strong> points per game = <strong>100</strong> point / <strong>60</strong> goal pace per 82 games = <strong>Career highs.</strong>
<strong>Nylander </strong>(23) = <strong>0.87</strong> points per game = <strong>71</strong> point / <strong>35</strong> goal pace per 82 games = <strong>Career highs.</strong>

At minimum, their improvement is making the contracts more palatable ... something which isn't currently (or won't be) said about:

Subban
Karlsson
Vlasic
Burns
Doughty
Skinner
Seguin
Hayes
Pricey
Bobrovski
Pavelski
Couture
Tavares
Teows
Benn
Backstrom
Duchene
Parise
Suter
Lucic
Neal

<strong>and so on ...</strong>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>palhal</b></div><div>No idea, but can't believe the middling Flames are going to waste big cap of Brodie and Hamonic.
It's just the nature of a cap league, the old and potential expensive get bumped and the teams hope that their youngsters who now are making much bigger money become "stars"
Leafs have three Dman UFAs...doubt if even one resigns with the Leafs. Holl and Dermot get raises in 2020/21, and the inexpensive Liljegren and Sandin get NHL jobs.</div></div>


Yeah Toronto has stuff to work out as well ... but it's manageable:

<strong>$5,000,000</strong> x 2 years = <strong>Rielly</strong>
<strong>$2,000,000</strong> x 3 years = <strong>Holl</strong>
<strong>$860,000</strong> x 2 years = <strong>Liljegren</strong>
<strong>$860,000</strong> x 3 years = <strong>Sandin</strong>
<strong>$4,000,000</strong> x 7/8 years = <strong>Muzzin</strong> = Extra term in exchange for lower cap hit since he's 30 (plus money up front = 6 + 6 + 5 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = $32,000,000)
<strong>$2,000,000</strong> x 2/3 years = <strong>Dermott</strong> = I don't think he gets more than Holl on a bridge (Holl plays 2 mins more per game + has a higher PTS/G + was a UFA)

Which leaves room to sign one UFA defensemen to play with Rielly:

<strong>$8,000,000</strong> x 7 years = <strong>Alex Pietrangelo ????</strong>
<strong>$5,000,000</strong> x 6 years = <strong>Travis Haminic ????</strong>
<strong>$4,000,000</strong> x 6 years = <strong>Chris Tanev ????</strong>
<strong>$2,000,000</strong> x 4 years = <strong>Radko Gudas ????</strong>

They could also trade for a top-4 RD with term:

<strong>Kapanen OR Johnsson</strong> + <strong>Timashov OR Moore</strong> + <strong>Hollowell OR Rasanen</strong> + <strong>Mid-Round Pick</strong>

Ideally they end up with something like:
<strong>
Hyman - Matthews - Marner
Kerfoot - Tavares - Nylander
Mikeyev - Engvall - Kapanen
Timashov - Goat - T.Moore
(Korshkov - Spez - Bracco)
(Robertsn - Brooks - Petan)

Rielly - Pietrangelo
Muzzin - Sandin
Dermott - Holl
Liljegren

Andersen
Backup
