    His cap hit is 6.96, but it seems his actual pay is 7.5 on average.

    Dubas found a loophole and exploited it.

    his actual pay isn't 7.5 it's 6.96

    there was no loophole exploited , it's just structured this way so Willie got paid a full years salary even though he sat out

    I know the leafs are paying guys a lot of money but the one positive is they’re all young and elite players. It’s not like they’re horrible contracts to guys like Ladd or Lucic who have become essentially dead weight.

    The oldest is pajama boy and he’s only 28 and in his prime.

    I think if they can find a way to make a hockey trade involving Nylander for a similar age defenseman preferably right handed on a decent contract that will help. In 2 years Marleau and Horton will be off the books as well.

    The toughest part for them will be figuring out how to sign their RFAs and role players to good contracts.

    Kadris contract for his talent is a blessing. No way should they trade him.

    6.96. If you want to round it off, it’s more honest to say 7.

    If you want to round it off, I agree with 7.

    The face value of Nylander's AAV this year is $10m. But because he signed with the regular season slightly over 30% completed, the actual cap space used this season is...wait for it...$6.96M...the same as his cap AAV for years 2-6.

    Nope. Nylander gets just under $7m of his $10m salary this season. If you include the $2m signing bonus he'll make just under $9m. Either way, he's set to make roughly $41.9m over his 6 year contract, an average of $6.96m per season.

    His actual take home pay is $6.96m on average. Exactly the same as his cap AAV.

    There is no loophole.

    Figure out how much money Marner actually pockets from the contract and divide by 8. That's the AAV in year 2-8.

    For year 1, take the AAV and divide it by the % of season remaining when he signs. That's the year 1 face value AAV. Though the real cap space used up is still identical to years 2-8.

    Should get a deal like Matthews because both are franchise players but hopefully he is a little cheaper

    Saying 6.9 is rounding down. That’s not honest in this context.

    Nylander's salary was pro rated this season so he wouldn't lose anything. Sure he got ten or whatever this year but season was already started so in reality he gets 6.96 or whatever every year of deal.

    He did not. The difference between 7.5 and 6.96 is the money Nylander lost by sitting out.

    It's no loophole. The difference between what Nylander signed for (7.5M) and what he's getting paid (6,96M) is the money he left on the table by signing December 1st instead of anywhere between July 1st and October 2nd.

    Technically, Nylander signed for 5 years and 8-9 months.

    Matthews @ 13.5mill over 8 years took 11.643mill over 5 years.

    Marner @ 10 mill over 8 years, will take 9mill over 6 years.

    BOOK IT!

    No, not quite. He signed for 45M, but he gets ~42M because of the time he missed. ~42M/~5.6= ~7.5

    He's not playing 6 years, though, as he missed out a portion of this season.
