Obviously the Leafs are matching any offer sheet. IF NHL GMs were smart this is the exact contract they should offer Matthews (or Marner) to put the leafs in cap hell. Max dollars and shortest term to get Matthews to UFA.

    Don't think the Leafs would match all at. Matthew isn't close to 12.5m McDavid. Isn't it ridiculous for any team to spend 16m. Gee look at Arizona cap. 1m left with a 20 man roster. So who's in cap hell?

    As Sammy suggested a player still has to sign an offer sheet. Just my opinion, Matthews would prefer to play in a big market right Toronto, so in five years he can move to possible NY or LA...a big commercial market. 4m difference would be tempted, but 8 years in a non hockey market for a bad team, probably doesn't appeal to Matthews.

    I cant see future but if I see an offer sheet for anyone I dont see Arizona going after any of the big name players. There is no way Arizona spends max $$ on Matthews or any player over 10 mil... there is a reason they are one of the lower spending team every year and has no one making more than almost 9 mil on the team. Yea, I hear people saying that once they spend on Matthews people will come and spend that money to watch him? really will they? plus just getting Matthews doesn't get you in playoffs as there is much more things that needs to be fixed with Arizona.

    I mean you don't know if he would sign or not. You certainly hope he doesn't sign but unless you can tell the future you can't know for sure. Has anyone ever offered you 16 mill? I'm guessing you might consider it.

    The only reason I suggested this idea was because I saw it reported on twitter and it was actually suggested by an unnamed NHL gm *allegedly*.

    Just an interesting idea IMO since the leafs have publicly stated they will match any offer sheet.

    I think the Leafs are in a very real danger of losing a player to an offer sheet but it won't be Matthews or Marner. Johnsson and Kapanen are targets. 1 or both will get squeezed hard after the big two get paid. At that point what do they do, trade Kadri to make Johnsson fit? Nope, they'll either see the writing on the wall and trade one of them in advance or they'll have to let them walk.

    Imagine if Kapanen says, I won't accept less than 5.5 million, (assuming he scores 30 goals that isn't unreasonable). The Leafs would be very hard pressed to give him that with Marleau still around, I imagine they may have to watch one of those two guys leave.

    Obviously its interesting when other teams are concentrating on other teams more than solving their own issues. Second.. Matthews would make 16mil+ in Toronto thats the thing.. lets say he signs 12mil contract for 8yrs thats 96mil plus added deals in toronto market and sponsorship deals he already has adds him plus 25-30 milion for that period which is something around 130 mil for 8 yrs (16.25 per year) so yeah and he would be on legit SC favourite.

    Some NHL GM suggested that Lou might want revenge on Leafs for signing Tavares which is utter crap. I just dont see offer sheets happening anymore.. ROR in Colorado was the last signed offersheet. I dont see it happening realistically.

    You realize Matthews is from Scottsdale and still spends his summers there. He was on the record saying he was hoping Arizona would win the draft lottery to take him.

    Agreed. We can replace Kapanen tho so it wouldnt be as big of a deal. Also we would have picks and pretty good ones.

    I assume TO would walk away from Kapanen if is offered over 4.1 million depending on who offers him that. Carolina for example I think the Leafs would consider taking the 1st and a 3rd. If the offer is less than that though I wonder if they'd sign him and then either trade him or trade Johnsson and Brown.

    Well he plays for Toronto now and seems to enjoy it as much as possible so.. I dont see any team offersheeting Matthews. Too much money for most teams. Arizona is probably one team he would sign for but they havent got the actual money to do it. And Leafs would go after Keller which they wouldnt be able to match.

    Leafs would offer him 4. Team trying to offer sheet him would likely need to overpay at 5-6 mil area which would result in pretty nice picks especially from bottom feeder teams who want to be better.

    Sir I respectfully disagree if Matthews were offered a stupid amount of money with the Yotes why would he not take it sir?

    I honestly don't think they will offer him 4. I think they'll offer him much less hoping he either takes a 1 year deal or that he wants to be part of this team longer and takes a huge haircut.

    Because he will get a stupid amount of money from TO and a crap tonne more from endorsements that he just will never get in Arizona.

    Maybe you're right. Maybe you're not. Fact is if Matthews signed that (hypothetically) He would make $37,555,872 after tax in Arizona compared to $29,889,316 in Toronto. So He already has to make up $7,666,556 in lost wages. You might say that's not a problem because of the great sponsorship opportunities in Toronto and that would be true, but Matthews is already one of the most marketable players in the NHL so its not like he's going to make $0 on sponsorships in Arizona (he's sponsors are not disappearing just because he signs there).

    The main point for Matthews to do this is because He would get to UFA as soon as possible (age 25) and would be free to sign wherever he wants at a max deal of 20% whatever the cap would be. Being conservative the cap be around 90 mill by the time he's a UFA and he would be eligible to sign a 7 x $18,00,000 with any team.

    I believe He'd still want to stay in TO but this would force there hand on signing the contract and helps Matthews financially by getting him to UFA asap.

    All of these points are moot because I still believe the Leafs match...forcing the leafs to deal away other players (nylander, kap, marner, whoever).

    GMs would be smart to do this because it hurts the Leafs, and in-turn it helps them. I know you might be upset by that point, but its a fact.

    Sir but you can only have so many chances to sign with your hometown team which the Coyotes are so he might be inclined to take it sir

    Lol, that may be the case but as much as that was definitely part of the appeal for Tavares. The biggest part of the appeal was being surrounded by elite talent. Matthews did a lot of recruiting, I highly doubt he'll scrap that whole dynasty they want to build to take a monumental step backwards.

    I highly doubt it'll ever come down to that. Dubas wants these contracts signed prior to the trade deadline this year.

    He in fact said he was going to be patient with Nylander. After he signed him, he stated he wants the other two contracts to go much quicker.

    Marner also said he wouldn't sign in season so you can probably sign him before the end of April sir
