    Leafs fans are crazy. We aren't talking about "locking them up" for 6 year deals at high salaries, we are talking 6 year deals at the very highest salaries ever. Carlo, McAvoy, and Point's next RFA contracts are not going balloon enough to offset what Matthews, Marner, and Tavares are costing the Leafs in the next 6 years. No way in hell. How they can twist those deals as anything but Dubas being bent over a barrel is insane.

    It feels like the Atlantic just got locked up for at least 3 years.

    exactly. The deals they gave out are 5 and 6 year deals. Buying out 1 or two years of UFA before there best players reach UFA and at top dollar.

    But they all think paying a lot less than that for 3 years and maintaining RFA status on these guys is a bad thing.

    Tampa could give Point a 3 year, 15 mil a year contract the second this bridge deal ends and he'd make less in total than Marner just got paid.

    Not to mention the Cap hits. Regardless of whether the Cap goes up or down, those 3 contracts are costing them against the Cap right now!

    It's freaking bizarre...it's possible that he and Zac Rinaldo may make up part of a line here and Czarnik could be the other guy.. Unlikely but it's like the Twilight zone potential.

    Ott vs Van or LA vs Anaheim?

    Which is more likely to be exciting?

    Well he is only GM of 31 who could have signed his top 4 to 40 million! He’s my second favourite GM,keep the Leafs down for another 50 plus years

    Are all the bruins at Islanders games in uniondale this season. I went to one in Brooklyn years ago and It really did not seem like a hockey community at all there where NHL players walking outside the arena and very few people knew who they where. I did get good seats for cheap though.

    Faulk and a 5th rounder for Edmundson, Prospect Bokk and a 7th rounder. Then they signed Faulk to 7 years 45.5mil (6.5 mil per)

    In short, the Blues just got better.

    I remember Krejci and DeBrusk schooling Faulk during OT last year, with Krejci scoring the GW goal during the regular season.

    I like Justin Faulk, but no way is he worth Edmunson and a 6.5 mil 7 year extension

    Any Carolina fan will tell you he was declining. All I've seen are glad he is gone.

    This could backfire badly for Armstrong.

    Oh my if the going rate for Faulk is edmunson and bokk, it would be a travesty to see krug walk for nothing next summer.

    Can’t believe Faulk got the canes a 2nd pairing shut down defender and a top 50 prospect. Good lord.
