    I'd much rather leave 4-5m open entering the season and make a mid-season deal for a larger contract to fill an identified hole on the roster - once the team establishes they're cup contenders. TB would have been better off doing that vs. signing Girardi.

    as a Leafs fan I'm happy to see other teams spend chunks of change on declining players. Meanwhile, fingers are crossed, they watch and learn vs. watch and repeat.
    Every fan base has had similar hope and it has never happened before. I'm not so sure players have any faith in that happening either. GMs make stupid mistakes when they have available cap space. They seem to be smarter when they're close to the cap.

    I'm not saying it can't happen... I'm just saying the odds are not in favor of it happening. I'd give them 10% odds of both Matthews taking a discount and them not wasting that money on something stupid.

    I found a snippet from Reddit that LeBrun made those comments during an intermission of a Mtl game... not that he'd take less than now, but he'd take a 'team discount' if given 8yrs.

    Well he can easily get 6mill/5-7yr in FA, so "Team Discount" for 8yrs would be 5mill?

    JVR will be 29 next summer, so giving him 8 years would be a big risk.

    I'd prefer to take him at 6yrs if he's giving a decent discount. very few players I'd want for 8yrs at that age.

    Terry Koshan reports today is the deadline for Leafs forward Nikita Soshnikov, who’s currently skating with their AHL farm team, to decide if he’ll use his option to return to the KHL if he’s not part of the Leafs roster. Soshnikov’s agent, Dan Milstein, said there’s no expectation his client will use employ that option.

    If he doesn't exercise that option, that's a team player right there. Might have to do with Ship getting $50,000 to play with Ska, and Sosh is making $70,000 in the minors. He's got like 12pts in 14games, so he'd be one of the first wingers called up if there's a slew of injuries.

    Sosh's agent said he wants to stay in the NHL and is willing to continue in the AHL. I think he should be playing for the Leafs, but how do you play him and not Leivo? Something's gotta give and fast.

    Sosh needs to find something other than a shot to make me believe he's an NHL player. Either get faster, or learn to open your shot up. Last yr and the short stint in 2015-16 season he had the shot and once people figured that out they just took it away from him. Right now, knowing they won't bench Martin often, Sosh doesn't have a spot on the Leafs.

    I think Sosh would thrive in a 3rd line role on this leafs team, it is just players with higher salary have first dibs on the spots. IMO a 4th line of Leivo - Brown - Sosh would be something though

    You don't think Sosh is fast enough ? I think he's a very good skater. I love Leivo and wish he'd play more, but between the two, I think Soshnikov is the better skater. And he plays more of an energy game suited for the 4th line.

    I meant like, he needs to be Grabner fast if he doesn't develop another way to open up his shot. When he gets it off without a stick in the way it's a sick shot, but D would just keep their stick in front of them, knowing Sosh couldn't blow past them, and can't dance around them. So he would just shoot and it would kick up into the netting or into the corner.

    He's an above average skater with that Babcock impressing determination, but I was talking about, "DAMN that kids fast" type of skating he needs to open his shot up.

    Per 4th line, if Toronto employs a 4th line with Martin, Sosh works better. If it's with Kapanen, I rather a skilled 4th with Leivo.

    Great Rielly interview with @OverDrive1050 ... Morgan says some Leafs calling Connor Brown "The Town bicycle" because of his poor fantasy football trades.

    I can't share too much as it's a pay site (the athletic), so that wouldn't be fair, but the stuff today about the Leafs fantasy football team is awesome.
    Gardiner seems pretty savvy about the whole thing. He's also their commish.
