Great deal…I’d do this if we didn’t already have 25 2nd/3rd liners signed to lifetime contracts.

No.

Apparently the cheeseburgler couldn't finagle a home town discount out of Davey boy.

That's a hard core amount of money (and term) for that player.

Nick Kypreos ‏@RealKyper 1m
confirming #Leafs Clarkson 36.75M over 7 yrs on new deal.


Not 6, but still high. Guys who are tough and can score 20-25 goals are always going to be in high demand. Leafs had to over pay by a million to get him though.

Yep, Stalberg was another guy I was hoping GMMG would bang the doors on.

Sign Viktor and potentially move Hansen for something.

Shrug.

Weiss to either the Wings or Blues…the number floating around is $6M per…LOL is that the going rate for a 50ish point 30 year old centre who has zero playoff experience?

Gillis would be getting crucified next year if any of these big money guys were Canucks because you know they can never live up to the expectations these contracts bring…

Would love nothing better than for Clarkson to mail it in, or suffer Leaf-itis a-la Green and Corson. Watching that blubbering oaf try to explain buying out that contract would be sweet, sweet viewing.

That move’s probably a wash and costs precious cap space this year…the only benefit would be Hansen could be moved for an asset (pick or young player).

I guess we could debate that in terms of potential enhanced offensive production and size differential in addition to the asset Hansen brought back.

My view of it anyway.

$3 mill a year over 3 years for a 3/4 center... crazy.

...hopefully GMMG won that poker game in driving the price up to the point where MacT had to overpay...
