    All those cheap deals... and none of those deals where offered or matched by the players team, always a different team.
    Wonder why?...

    Ferland was asking for a lot more money and term from Carolina during the year. Had a poor playoff.

    Dzingel was one of the Blue Jackets worst players this playoffs.

    I think overall outside of a few deals. GMs haven't paid a lot out. Not using the escalator is really pinching the middle tier FAs

    I agree don't need these underachieving cap eating players. Put Coyle with David k and Jake. 3rd line kid line with stud seny and danton. 4th line and 1st line we all know. Let's roll.

    Agreed, was also my point that those players in the eyes of other teams are not worth what the players agents thought.
    Hence in reality not really a cheap deal.

    You always wonder about a player when his team turns their back on them. While not in every case , time usually explains it.

    First thing that comes to mind, although there's exceptions.

    Wow these signings are confusing lol. All 4 of these players signed this year and their P/GP over the last two seasons is very similar...yet the money is all over the place.

    Meier - .64 P/GP (4yrs @ $6.0 million)
    Dzingel - .62 P/GP (2yrs @ $3.3 million)
    Labanc - .60 P/GP (1yr @ $1 million)
    Eberle - .60 P/GP (5yr @ $5.5 million)

    Top contributors will take the biggest part of the cake, it's not as cheap no more to fill out the bottom of the roster.
    Between the kids and the vets those in middle have to perform in order to cash in, if not they'll bounce from team to team at lesser pay. Like were seeing now.

    That Labanc deal is just insanity. They must be promising the world to him behind closed doors.

    The Maple Leafs have had a very good off season.

    Jason Dickinson signing for 1.5m is even low, not as insane as Labanc but he could have gotten more.

    Both rep’d by Curran.

    Marner may have permenantly damaged his relationship not only with the Leafs but certainly with their fans over this. Nylander has never regained the place in Leafs fans minds/hearts he once occupied before his contract holdout. May be a harsh lesson about the worth of money for Mitch.

    Of course, continued success might wash that from the fickle mobs mind soon enough as well.

    This has to be the least interesting free agency ever. Just feels like there's a massive logjam with teams having cap issues. In the end it's led to GMs making smarter decisions. Definitely not a players market out there right now.

    Face it guys it's kids or bust this year. Nothing is gonna happen now. We have to eat backes contract plain and simple. Donny won't move first round pick and nobody wants our bust zboril or seny though I think he isn't a bust just confused. Donny won't part with vak or stud also. Checkmate.

    The teams were Detroit and NJ Devils.

    This guy has been right about a lot of moves so far.

    It is what it is. Certainly not doom & gloom as some would suggest. We can wax poetic over some of the kids, "not panning out yet"(Seny, Zboril specifically) or not signing Ferland, et al yada yada until we are blue in the face. Let's see this thing through before we start planning the eulogy on a season that hasn't started yet...lol. I believe that we will be fine.

    Labanc has a future deal agreed on, no doubt in my mind
