Team Explanation
If a team were to offer sheet Mitch...there are tough decisions to be made.

If Horton is LTIR before Day 1...ok fine. TOR can indeed get under the cap. BUT trading during the season is improbable. Listen to a real GM talk about his LTIR situation below.

I really think Dubas' goal is to hope no offer sheet comes and then Day 2 work something out with Marner. Horton/Hyman can go on LTIR and there's space available. Or heck, even give him more time to look for other trade outlets for a Cody Ceci.

Making adjustments during the season are vital when making a push for the cup. I don't think Dubas is would go into the season knowing he's got almost no options.

Im sure he is hoping that offersheet is not there. I believe the offersheet from some team to Marner was already presented and rejected. I believe no offersheet to marner happens! As you showed here, it is possible to get them under the roof, but it would be tough! I believe Mitch would sign the second 1st game of the season ends before 2nd game. They can fit it there nicely and it would be under 10. But offersheet treath is real, which means that it would be harder on our cap. But its possible to have it done, which shows amazing job by Dubas to pull clearing out like he did.

If it takes that much to sign Marner, they should sign him and trade him to Arizona or so. There are people in sports who are taking less money for being on a championship caliber team. Tom Brady is the best example. I am wondering why they are a championship caliber team in the last 20 years, while a team like the Leafs did not have a competitive team in 30 years. Fancy moves and a high pay check may animate a lot of people to create youtube videos, but it does not bring you a cup

Yeah, if there's a pre-arrangement TODAY that there's an agreed upon contract that works for both sides...give Dubas credit for sure. He's helped Marner understand that Winning is more important that the highest offer. however, if this happens in the summer...I'm not so sure Dubas is doing the right thing. It's a VERY tough spot to be in, but being stuck all season is risky. If it works out...worth the risk, if it doesn't TOR fans are going to be livid and blame him for handcuffing the team in the summer. Tough spot. It's fun to talk about.

It doesn't even matter anymore. There's nothing else to think about. Its as simple as
1. A team will have to overpay on an OS to get him
2. If Marner signs the offer sheet he is as good as gone to the eyes of the leaf management, and also will be too overpaid to refuse the 4 1st round picks.
There is nothing to consider anymore. It's 500 degrees out and summer time so let's all just let this idiot agent do whatever he wants and see how it plays out. I'm sure this is how the management is thinking also

Can't compare Brady. Football deals get made and unmade every single year. Brady gets more guaranteed money by renegotiating his contract. NHL/NBA/MLB contracts are set once you sign...and they're all guaranteed.
