    I'm..ok with it. For some, the contracts have gotten out of hand and teams are struggling to keep talent they've drafted and invested time in that want a huge ass pay day and have them having to more other talent they've put time into.

    Some need a chin check. Others are just stuck because of the greedy f***ers.

    Like the look in his eyes, he's been dead to me since September 26, 1980.

    Morrissey gets a 8 x 6.25M extension after this year. Really solid deal for the Jets imo.

    I’m not a huge fan of Provorov’s game but that’s a solid deal for Philly.

    Also, how I'd rank the Leafs' top players

    Tavares
    Marner
    Matthews
    Reilly
    Nylander

    My knock on Matthews, even though he scores a ton of goals, is that he's like Stamkos in every other department. However, critiquing them (Matthews, Tavares, Marner) is like talking about sports cars. At the end of the day, any one of them would be sweet to have.

    It's good they got him signed for 6 years, but he's not worth 7 mill IMO. He's good, but not 7 mill good. Maybe finds that next level in his game in the next couple of years.

    Could just be me, but he doesn't seem to stand out when we play them. I notice more of Ghost when we play them

    Yeah I think all 3 are on the same tier and close enough to where the “who is better” argument is best judged game-by-game.

    Tavares is better on the walls but my take on Matthews is that given health; if he was like any other young superstar 1C (McDavid, Stamkos, Tavares, Malkin, Crosby and so on) and getting 20+ min, best teammates, heavy PP time, being more of a focal point, etc.... his raw output would be ridiculous imo. Especially his goal scoring. He’s so absurdly talented.

    Just never seen a guy pot goals with the apparent ease he does.

    Yeah I agree. He seems to move the puck okay and flash some talent/offense but I feel like we completely eat him alive every time we play them. He’s just not a noticeable guy.

    Still, he’s not a bad player. He’s treaded water in a 1D role without much help. Just think if he was truly a top level guy he would have probably excelled by now despite the circumstances.

    That’s a bad take.

    Their whole core's a tad overpaid really - guess I don't blame Marner for not wanting to be the one who wasn't. Guess it'll look okay in a few years as it becomes the new normal but right now it feels like that cap burden might be a bit difficult in terms of getting round for having the depth to be a real contender. They're gonna have to hope the kids come through real good next year if they want to replicate the effects of Muzzin and Barrie for 6.5m on their blue line again (even allowing for having Ceci's money to do it)

    if I’m Toronto ideally it’s

    Nylander 6.9 for 6
    Matthews 10 for 5
    Marner 9 for 6

    But I guess the Tavares contract pushed Matthews to the 11 range which pushed Marner higher too. I think Nylanders deal is fine.

    7.57 x 7 for those as dumb as me - that read likes a pretty fair deal to me. Fair dos to Guerin for getting that sorted quickly without going mad - and damn him for making the rental market less interesting.
