If he were to sign a 5-7 year deal as a UFA next season, what do you think is his market value?
7 years probably 5 million per
5 years probably 6 million per
It all depends on the market though, if hes the only mid pairing D in that price range it could be more.
$6M at the least.
UFA 6 -7.
Re-signs with the Leafs before that 5-6.
If he gets $6 million for 6 or 7 years the team signing it will regret it IMO.
He should ideally be a second pairing guy who quarterbacks the PP. Just too inconsistent defensively to warrant that kind of term and money.
Oh my god how is $6-7 million winning this poll lol. Would be pissed if my team signed him for more than 4 years at $5m, and even then I wouldn't be a fan of the contract
I agree with you.
But the question is what he would get in free agency. And there’s a few GMs who are always ready to overpay.
I wouldn't want him at that either but I think if he puts up another 50 point season, he will get 6-7. A feat which I believe he will accomplish.
less than Ellis if he signs with the Leafs
If I were Dubas, I'd be actively seeking those out right now and seeing if I could package something together to pick up a RHD.
Why our top 4 next year:
50 point player. if Shea Theadore is 5.2 this puts him at 6 million + range.
Shea Theodore's like 23
If he put of 50 points again you best believe he gets 6-7 from someone

Gardiner is basically a dman version of Kane or JvR in terms of value.
Around the same age, not a top guy on a team but solid secondary player, has some flaws but capable of some solid offense.
On a 5 year deal Gardiner will be worth 7M. More term i think it'll be in the 6-range.
Shattenkirk got 6.65x4 when the cap was 75M. Maybe goes up to ~82M next summer.
So yeah 6-7 is pretty fair to say, depends on the term.
Is that... good?
Why is he giving Toronto a $1-2 million discount?
Yikes! Zaitsev on the top pairing and two rookies on the second pair.
I can’t see Babcock rolling the dice on that group.
He gives TO a discount because they replay game 7's last period during negotiations.
Seriously, probably around high fives and low sixes.
I hope you're right.
Have you seen what UFAs sign for? There tends to always be one team (probably more) that offer a lot for UFAs.
Same reason why Tavares did.
Wants to win a cup in Toronto.
It would be alright for next year, rielly is rielly and zaitsev has bounced back it seems, but sandin and lily are very raw I would wait at least another year before bringing them up. But they would probably play next year. But still, the defence is very skate the problem out and not psychical at all minus zaitsev.
Zaitsev’s bounced back?
Did I oversleep and miss the start of the season?
There’s no way he should be on any teams top pairing. His defensive play is atrocious.
Gardiner isn't from Ontario. Tavares is, that's why he signed in Toronto.
