I'll probably get bashed for being a Mathews hater.. but, jus curious.. Leafs fans.. has his recent slump, in some ways been a blessing in disguise??? I mean, how can he command McDavid $$$...its quite obvious there is quite a gap between the two stars.. One is exceptional.. one is really good..,,
I'm not trying to be a hater,, I jus don't see him being able to command that money.,, I think this is good for the Leafs.. he's still going to be Superstar.. jus a tier below the Great ones.. like McDavid, Crosby.. the true generational talents..
May help Leafs get more depth by not having to him 12 + mill.. my opinion, he's worth 9M.. but he will get more cause of Eichel..

Too many people have put way too much pressure and have too high expectations on players like Matthews and Laine. They have a few great games and they are the best players in the world and worth $12 mil a year. They have a few poor games they are over-rated and lucky to get $5 mil per. They are only 21 and 20 years old and will have slumps. Neither are generational talents just good players that are still learning the NHL game.

Yeah he's not really helping himself or the team ATM but there is still time for him to put up some big numbers before the end of the season. we have to remember before the season started people were predicting he would sign for 9 mil. 20 games in it had changed to making more the mcdavid . I think unless he poops the bed for the rest of the season he's getting at least 11 to 12.

Auston, as an RFA with no inflation like Tavares is worth between 10.0 and 10.5. To be honest, if Marner keeps up his wicked pace, it might be twin 10.0 x 8 Years for both of them - like Toews/ Kane. But I've never believed that Auston would be near McDavid money. He doesn't deserve it. McDavid is head over heels better than any young player in the league, with guys like MacKinnon, Matthews, Eichel in the tier below him. Matthews is still exceptional, but i think 10x8 is reasonable. 12x8 would be an overpay imo.

I agree Sosa, I’m hopful that this years inconsistency will
Help him take less than he thinks he’s worth. I’d like to see him and marner get similar contracts. I think the Eichel contract is a very good comparable for Matthews and kucherov contract would be comparable with marner.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2019 00:29:34
If Marner gets 10 then does Draisaitl’s 8.5 look good?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2019 00:59:49
I think we all can agree that there is no chance that Matthews will take any less than Eichel and in my opinion he will want more. I also think that he will actually want at least as much as Tavares, since he is supposed to be the franchise player. I'm going to say $11M minimum with a chance that he asks for the same percentage of cap as McDavid got and maybe works down slightly from that.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just leaving this here. What could have been the oilers lineup for forwards

Draisaitl McDavid Anyone
Hall Barzal Eberle
Anyone RNH PULJUJARVI
ANYONE ANYONE ANYONE

In this scenario since the hall trade doesn’t happen, so they don’t need to sign Lucic leaving some cap to fill those holes. Yes no larsson on defense but that doesn’t even make much of a difference cause the rest of the blue line is basically identical.

Could’ve gotten Anthony Bealiver too 😬.

Ty rattie and ryan spooner placed on waivers I'm betting rattie gets claimed spooner not so much

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jan 2019 20:27:06
Soooo Eberle, 1st, 2nd for a 3 million AHLer. And Chiarelli still has a job.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jan 2019 00:31:24
Rattie could be a useful 4th line player on a team unlike the Oilers who wouldn't expected him to be a top 6 player. What a waste of a young kid. Maybe he will be picked up by a team that will use him properly.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jan 2019 05:34:22
The Oilers didn’t waste Rattie? They picked him up off waivers and he didn’t seize the opportunity so he got put back on them. I personally liked him and would’ve liked to see him over Yamamoto, Rieder, Cave and even Puljujarvi for the time being.

How many leaf fans think babcock has won multiple stanley cups? It appears a few of the toronto media thinks he has.

Agree0 Disagree2

Everyone is over-hyped and over-valued in Leaf land. Just look at some of the trade posts involving the Leafs.

Agree2 Disagree1

22 Jan 2019 11:18:19
And yet those overhyped Leafs spanked your Jets this year. in both meetings. Is that why you’re so salty? I get that there are a lot of stupid Leaf trade proposals on this site. The Leafs have one of (if not the biggest) fan bases so naturally they will also have a lot of biased trade proposals. If Winnipeg had more than 47 people living there I’m sure there would be a lot more stupid trade proposals about them too. Don’t be so triggered.

unsportsmanlike are you ever sensitive, or does the truth hurt that much.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Jan 2019 17:10:13
Not a Leafs fan so I could care less about them -- I was a Whalers fan until they moved the team to Carolina – now my favourite Ron Francis jersey is considered “vintage”.

What I am "sensitive" to is B. S. hypocritical statements from someone who also consistently overvalues his own team's players and ends up making contradictory statements in what seems to be an endless envious obsession with the Leafs (still trying to figure out why as the last time they won anything you probably were probably swimming in the sack and the only thing that comes to mind is they beat up on your beloved Jets twice this year) .

You state “why would anyone want an overpaid Nylander” which is fair given that he is not playing up to his contract right now. But then you turn around and suggest the Leafs would have to give up a 1st and Liljegren or Sandin to obtain Shattenkirk who has been demoted to the 3rd pairing and is just as far from living up to his $6.7 mln salary as Nylander his. This blatant lack of consistency suggests you just have some envious hate on for the Leafs. Just calling out your obvious B. S. bias – that’s the real truth, and it does not hurt me one bit.

Yowzer! Unsportsmanlike brought his A game today lol.

Well said unsportsmanlike. Islandjet truly believes that only the jets have good players. He constantly bashes the leafs and oilers every chance he can. The jets have been a good team for a few years, before that they were garbage for years. Maybe that’s why he is so salty.

The "what" lady who at the draft almost died on the spot when the habs drafted kotkaniemi now gets annoyed if her husband questions marc bergevin.

Toronto - William Nylander
Carolina - Dougie Hamilton

Agree3 Disagree2

18 Jan 2019 06:32:35
Not sure anyone wants Nylanders contract now unless he starts playing well.

Agree1 Disagree2

19 Jan 2019 01:49:18
Nylander is like Kessel. He’s not going to drive a line, very good shooters but they need a good center to get him the puck. They don’t go into the dirty areas and work for puck possession. Personally I’d love for the leafs to trade him now for defensive help and if I was leafs GM I’d make thisbtrade. Just don’t think nylander is what Carolina needs, they don’t really have a good/ great center to feed him the puck.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jan 2019 02:50:46
Yah no it would be stupid for a team like Carolina to take on a 21 year old potential PPG player after 20 bad games on a short season.

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jan 2019 18:17:14
VB, whose passing the puck to nylander? Nylander is a goal scorer he’s not a playmaker he’s not a two way forward he’s a pure shooter. That’s why I compared him to Kessel. Who does Carolina have that’s going to be the set up man. Staal isn’t that guy, if Carolina is going to trade Hamilton it’s going to be for a top 1/ 2 center. They already have neittereitter, aho etc on the wing now they need center help. I believe prime years these days for players are age 23-28 given that it’s all about speed and skill anymore so if nylander can’t be a point s game player playing with top tier centermen in Toronto how will he do it in Carolina. If I’m carolina I’d be looking to trade Hamilton for nuge or maybe even duchene (if they could do a sign and trade) or Tyson Jost. I wouldn’t target a shooting winger that they already have.

Agree0 Disagree2

19 Jan 2019 19:03:50
Nylander has played center before and if put in that position in a non pressure environment like Carolina he might thrive.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2019 21:34:16
True true, but playing center in the nhl is different than playing center in junior or europe. Marner also played center in junior.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2019 22:18:18
As time goes on without weewilly producing his worth diminishes. It’s better the Leafs wait until the end of the season when they will get more for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2019 01:26:39
I agree island jet. His value isn’t what it was before he started playing this year. I personally like kapinens game better, the leafs as a team we’re playong better before nylander showed up this year, good chemistry. I’d rather see Kapanen get a decent raise and play with Matthews rather than keep nylander. I think Kapanen compliments matthews much better than nylander plus he penalty kills. I think in this post leafs would take the deal just don’t think carolina does, think they can get something closer to what they need. Hamilton has term left so they don’t need to hurry and trade him, same as the leafs.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2019 01:35:50
It may be better to wait until the end of the season like islandjet said but I think Carolina would take that deal knowing the success Nylander’s had. Especially if Hamilton is not fitting in.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2019 07:16:33
Nylander would look good next to Aho.
Hamilton is just what the leafs need.
I don’t know the contracts of both players so maybe some tweaking would be necessary on one side or the other but it’s not the worst proposal I’ve read on this site.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2019 17:32:37
Lol what Nylander is not a pure shooter have you watched him play? He’s a playmaker.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jan 2019 09:37:09
Nylander pure shooter, yeah right :) ) )

This is the 2nd time nino neidereitter has been traded in his career for an underwhelming return

Bit of a head-scratcher this one. Not sure why Wild would want Rask. Waddell might have actually redeemed himself a little with this one.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jan 2019 00:57:49
Yeah a rare good trade by Waddell.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jan 2019 11:20:00
What would it take to get Dzingel to Montreal?

My proposal would be something like 2019 2nd, Hudon, 2019 4th. Since he's a rental.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2019 17:39:57
Why would you want to give that up for a rental?

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jan 2019 22:01:28
In Pittsburgh, I beleive his numbers are inflated by who he gets to play with. In Montreal, he will be what Habs are full of, no real offensive stars, a group of more or less 2nd Line forwards. I don't see a for him on Habs.
Also, I believe Bergevin has stated he isn't in on the rental scene this year, I know he said not one of his good young prospects, but I still don't see him going this direction. or. Pittsburgh doing this either.

Ryan Dzingle plays for Ottawa Sosa, quit the drinking.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2019 00:00:42
For some reason I thought of Guentzel.
And shut it Boom. I haven't had a drink in 3 weeks. as for you. jus get smart. I made a mistake. but your an idiot all the time.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2019 00:59:13
Lollol it's been a long 3 weeks though hasn't it Sosa?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2019 15:05:30
Nah. I'm done with it for awhile buddy. went a lil off for a bit. Boredom from recovering from surgery got best of me.
Anyway. as to Dzingle. don't need him either. lol.
