    I don't really see what argument he has for much more than 6 per right now. Even if he keeps up his pace this season, he's still going to be in tough arguing that he deserves more than Pastrnak.

    He still has another season to improve. What happens if he gets 80 points next year?

    The crazy thing about these 2 being hot is that Marleau has been cold. He hasn't looked good lately at all. Hopefully not a sign of things to come so soon.

    He really has been a passenger on that line for the most part.

    After watching the last couple of games, Marner has fed him some beauty chances and he just cannot bury them. All I can envision is that being Matthews instead, and him scoring a crazy amount of goals after being fed by Marner. :pout:

    That third year on that contract is going to bite us, and I can't help but think that is JVR's money right there. It looks like father time is working here, hope I'm wrong, but Marleau had a hot start, and hasn't done much since. He's getting some points now, but really they are passenger points, Kadri and Marner are driving the bus.

    They are going to get far more than Pasternak. Just based on the 6m bump in cap. If anything I see us handing out bridge deals, for sure with Nylander.

    I think cap % is a decent indicator of comparing one contract to another.

    Pastrnak got 6,666,666 for 6 years (What is wrong with him? haha)
    that was 8.89% of the cap when he signed.

    If the cap rises to 80m next year, maybe it rises to 83m the year after?
    8.89% of 83m is 7.38m.

    Maybe it jumps up to 7.5m if he gets into the PPG territory. Then again, I think Nylander's contract that he gets after this season could be a indicator as to what he should be making.

    The cap next year is around 80m, 8.89% of that is 7.1. I could definitely see Nylander getting 7m a year for a long term contract in the summer. Maybe they give Marner the same contract even when the cap goes up the year after.

    Oh oh, Mitch is starting to pull away from the guy that is supposed to be better, but can never have a better season (Aho).

    And both those guys weren't stuck in bottom 6 roles for 50 games.

    I don't see Lou doing that, just because the cap went up doesn't mean we give the money away...we still have to build a sustainable team.

    That comparison was so laughable, a "tell" really. Perhaps a more realistic discussion, Marner or Eichel?

    In fairness, when Kadri was going 1 for 20, Marleau was producing around his PPG pace with 8 points over that time frame.

    Sometimes you drive. Sometimes you sit in the passenger seat.

    Seriously? Main boards are hilarious. Aho is a good top six player but he's not nothing at all on Marner. In the very near future, it's very likely that Marner will have more assists than Aho has points.

    It's not enough that your nonsense got the Kadri thread locked up, now you have to wade into other threads to remind of us that Kadri had a slump earlier this season? Sad stuff.

    And Marner is a star already in my books. Of course "star" is a subjective term so pointless discussion really.

    The encouraging thing is that Marleau has been getting himself lots of chances to score, his shot has just been missing. I'd be more concerned if he was invisible on the line but that's not the case. He's all over the net just can't bury it right now.

    Yes it is. He was not a top 6 forward earlier this season by ice-time or usage.

    Nylander with a 60 pt season can’t ask for more than 6-6.5 depending on length. Everyone keeps going on about the cap going up but last projection is 79 million.
    That’s like a 350k bump.

    So that would be 7x 6 for a much higher performing player in pasta. And a 6.3 for a similar player in ehlers.

    I’m still betting on 6.25 for both if Marner signs this year

    Agree, not much more than 6 for both, bet their deals are almost identical.

    Numbers looking similar(so far). Actually think Marner will be better than Kane at this point.

    Admittedly I didnt watch enough Hawks back then (mostly when they played the wings). Marner has just been so dominant the last 2-3 weeks.

    You don’t like facts eh?

    The point and counterpoint to Marleau being a passenger on the line.

    You are too emotional about this issue. Calm down and we can have a discussion instead of one of your “discussions”.
