Lou - bitter and vengeful - sounds about right.
Rake them Leaves Lou, just rake ‘em.

Sic 'em Lou...
The Islanders have a 1 next year their 2nd is sketchy if the Flames Miss the playoffs don't they receive it? their other 2nd belongs to Vegas who flipped it to Detroit for Tartar... The 3rd belongs to the Oilers and the 4th belongs to the Flames if the Flames Miss so they have a 1 possibly no 2,3 or 4 and u think Lou is gonna overpay for a Nylander i'm sure the Leafs would love the picks anything between 8-10 mil is 2 firsts an 2nd and a 3rd anything over 10mil is 4 first rounders pretty risky for a club that isn't a playoff team... But I'm sure Doc you are out there leaving no stone unturned to see how someone can stick it to THE MAPLE LEAF... 8-) After u went out on that Joffery Lupul limb last summer as u spent every waking moment scouring the MAPLE LEAF salary cap situation I though u would learn your lesson... DOC U ARE NO MATCH FOR THE MAPLE LEAF 8-) bless your little heart for trying but JR EWING ALWAYS WINS 8-)

Looks Like I will get another good laugh as u once again lose your mind again over the comings and goings once again of the MAPLE LEAF this summer.... 8-) This thread and your participation will be entertaining as I watch u slowly lose your mind... 8-)

Paddy, rumour is Lou is going to offer-sheet Matthews next year... 7 years at $16M AAV.

(Isles have all their picks for the following draft, so they're good to go on any/all offer-sheets)

Matthews will likely accept to get away from The Cock... and back to the good old US of A.

(Matthews wants an offer sheet next summer, that's why he is refusing to sign this summer)

And no doubt he'll get one of his Old Boys Club pals to offer-sheet Marner at the same time.

Should be an interesting summer for all involved The Isles,Lou, Babcock,Waldo, If Lou was smart he'd stand down its a young man's game and Waldo embarrassed Lou already if Lou and U know whats good for either of you u would take that advice and let bygones be bygones 8-) I hate to see u get all flustered if it goes the way of THE MAPLE LEAF 8-)

No no, it's all good.

I love it when Leafers get their hopes this high!

It makes the pain of the inevitable failure that much more severe... and palatable. :)

How many times have we been through this, so good...

Oh could you imagine!!!! I hope it's true. I speculated from the get go that Matthews would not be the Leaves franchise center beyond his second contract. The signing of Tavares in Leavesville reinforces any rumours that Matthews wants, or will want, to depart for a team based in the USofA.

The Islanders have ton of cap space this year, and will have an additional $12+M clearing next season. They could offer sheet Matthews and Marner at the same time themselves. Nylander also has had a bunch of chemistry with Matthews, they could offer sheet him now as he's still an unsigned RFA.

Imagine if that happened. An offer sheet to Nylander now, then to Matthews next season! If I was Lou I would offer Nylander $8Mx7 right now, then just let him talk to his buddy Matthews over the season and plant the bug that a big time offer sheet is coming his way next summer.

Hell, I almost feel as if Benning should drop an offer sheet for $7M on Nylander. The guy has put up back-to-back 61 point seasons at 22 years of age.

Baertschi - Horvat - Boeser
Virtanen - Pettersson - Nylander

With Beercheese being replaced by someone better in a year or so. :D

The compensation of a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, though keeps it at an almost.

Although Tanev + 2nd + Baertschi for Nylander I would do in a heartbeat.

To make the offer sheet work as revenge, the idea is to make an offer that is matched. Offer sheet Matthews 14-15 per over 7 years. Leafs can take the five 1sts or match. But offer 12.5 and make them have to match.

Do that this year to Nylander if you are Lou. Offer him 8 per x 7 years. Next year target Mathews or Mariner. If you are Lou you want them to match cause you want them in cap hell where they can’t add defensive help.

Using offer sheets to put teams in cap hell is the most commonly-conceived rationale, and it does make sense. However, offer-sheeting players to pry them out may be just as viable when you’re talking about a player like Matthews. Yeah, Lou would give up a handful of 1st round picks, but in that case he’s banking on them being from the middle of the 1st round at that point. If Matthews is the generational talent the Toronto hype machine makes him out to be, it becomes a question of quality over quantity. Besides, it’s not like Toronto has a sterling record picking outside the top ten.

Either way, any way to screw over Waldo and bring Toronto fans more misery gets my vote. Go get’em Lou!!!

If you look at the Toronto Sport Network you will see that Toronto is now the best contender for the cup. They will have to score a lot of goals and keep the puck in the offensive zone, if not then FA will have to stand on his head.

Poor Tuna.

Wasnt Matthews already sulking in the playoffs over ice time? The Cock has already alienated him wait until Tavares gets pissy and only scores one playoff goal as well.

One is happy to be home.
The other had to be soothed and stroked not to demand to go home.
