and blow the cap out of the water. yeah, sounds like what old management would have done. tavares i think is overrated, no way he is worth 10 mil. they have gone nowhere with himI would take Tavares in a heartbeat outside Matthews he'd be our best player and give us 2 legit #1C's.
You could trade one or two of Marner, Nylander, Kap for a top 4 Dman and you'd still be sitting pretty, although you'd become CHI and develop their cap merry go round of moving out role players annually.
I think the leafs could get Tavares for under $10mil/yr which they could make work. most of their assets are locked in to team friendly contracts outside of the rookies
6,1 220lbs 27 next year and a PPG(almost) player every year on NYI?and blow the cap out of the water. yeah, sounds like what old management would have done. tavares i think is overrated, no way he is worth 10 mil. they have gone nowhere with him
i just dont think he would fit on the leafs for what it would cost to sign him. stay the course and dont try to speed up the plan. this is mathews team, end of story.6,1 220lbs 27 next year and a PPG(almost) player every year on NYI?
how can you say over-rated? This isn't Neon Dion
Same. This is different than the Stamkos' situation, I think Tavares is better than Stamkos. It wouldn't mess up the cap. Worst thing that'll happen is you have to trade Marner or Nylander for other assets. Not the end of the world. Matthews and Taveres down the middle one two punch would be sick.I'm all for Tavares if he goes UFA. Just not worth trading to get him.
