    Incompetence of Chirelli is more likely to effect the League. Lucic on his contract is FAR worse. Draisaitl Draisaitl continued the trend, although not as bad. Beyond the Oilers there is that $10M goalie with what, 7 years left? And the $10M player who has never cracked 40 goals with 8 years left?

    I get it, you hate the Leafs, but this is pretty sad even for you.

    Lucic has nothing to do with the conversation at hand, which is 2nd contract for players coming off their entry deal.

    You forgot the 11.6 million dollar player with the shortest term of them all who hasnt cracked 70 points yet.

    Eichal signed for full 8 year term and Price had won a Hart trophy. Matthews doesnt have anywhere close to the hardware Price did and Prices contract was full 8 years plus he was a UFA. Matthews was an RFA and he got that deal which is why it affects the rest of the league. Even Draisaitl at least got 8 years with his contract.

    I mean, it's not Calder trophy, but "that goalie" does have a heart trophy (among others)

    Cry me a river. This whole RFA class was going to get paid whether Matthews signed first or not. Things are changing in the NHL. It's nots just a Leaf problem.

    8.5 M for a top 5 goal scorer this season is bad now.

    How was Nylander over paid?
    He's taking up similar cap hit % to his comparables as far as points go. Very misinformed.

    As far as Matthews, idk uncharted land. Could be right though.

    Make more money and quit your whining.

    Cap will go up and the food stamp teams will continue to toil in mediocrity.

    Eichel hasn't even hit 65 points yet.. Drai hasn't centered his own line with that deal. Price in retrospect is over paid and was at the time too. Flawed logic. Even if drai and Eichel have nice contracts.

    Was Dubas assessed on his ability to negotiate prior to being hired as Leafs GM? Apparently not.

    Eichal got a full 8 year deal and by your logic Matthews shouldnt get his contract because he hasnt hit 70 points. Theres a huge difference between Eichals 8 year deal and Matthew's 5 year deal. Also Draisaitl had a better playoffs than Mcdavid right when he got his deal and even he got full UFA deals. None of those are close to as bad as Matthews.

    20 mill to Nylander and Matthews. Leafs deserve the Cap Hell they are going to be in.

    Nylander only got 1 UFA year im pretty sure where as the similer contracts had 2 or 3 UFA years.

    Dude. You said Matthews hasn't hit 70 points so he doesn't deserve his contract, yet you said Eichels is fine even though he hasn't even hit 65 points .. Do you see how silly that is. Regardless of contract length. And should I remind you of the other notable star player who took 5 year deals post elc?

    Also again your using a insanely small sample size for drai. By your logic he's >> McDavid cause of the playoffs.

    Teams have been getting away with under-paying good, young players for years, while aging vets on the downhill slide have been getting way too much- and Lucic is a prime example of that.

    The Leafs executives got sick of looking at Matthews' nostrils and just wanted to be done with it.

    - Larkin is 6,1M so lower than Melander.
    - Team is in a worse position.
    - Larkin is a true center.
    - Larkin is a legit two-way player.

    Melander fits none of these.
