    I am hoping long term for under $7m/yr, but I think he'll sign short term. If they can't come to an agreemtn don't trade him unless you can get an unreal return for him, otherwise I am ok with him sitting out the year. I also think if he ask for a trade he will quickly find out no team will give him $8m/yr.

    I think he sits and goes to the KHL or Swedish Elite League etc

    He liked a couple Leafs instagram posts the other day so based on that I am going to say he signs with the Leafs.

    He'll sign, I'm sure his agent has talked shop with a few teams and I'm confident they didn't like what they heard which was likley nobody willing to go to 7min and offering closer to 6mil.
    Knowing that the money is not there if he does get traded should be enough motivation for him to stay in Toronto, why ruin a good thing if nobody is going to offer you more money than the Leafs

    I think Leafs overpaid by a little but ultimately I am glad Willy is back on the team.

    Now the rumour mill shifts to Marner and Matthews...

    I honestly thought not signing was fine for the team. It was up to Bill Nye, hockey guy if he was okay with not getting 6m and sitting the year. Leafs held the cards.

    good deal for both sides, I think he may get tradedin the offseason though. depends how deep in the playoffs they go and if Willie is invisible or not

    Leivo to Vancouver

    I don't think he's getting traded in the offseason, that's just hot takes from Kypreos. The Leafs see Marner, Matthews, and Nylander (and I guess now JT) as the core they build around they are not signing him just to trade him later on. If you look at their cap situation they can fit everybody in no problem with the exception of Gardiner if he wants market rate.
