Matthews gets paid the 2nd highest AAV in the NHL and Toronto doesn't buy a single year of UFA. Good Job Dubas.

The money is fine but *unless im mistaken* this deal isn't too good for the leafs because this makes him a UFA as soon as his contract is up

I realize the term isnt ideal as he will be a UFA so not a great contract but I think Dubas worked with what he was given and if im a leafs fan im content with this contract, not happy but not upset. This makes the trade deadline and outlook on the offseason alot easier (Leafs will have 7 mil in cap space according to capfriendly). Interested to see how he does.

Well the contract ends when he is 26, so maybe they are buying extra years by going shorter term now.

This is a great contract, Dubas so far has been good and this makes his trade deadline and outlook on the offseason alot easier. Interested to see how he does. Anyways this contract benefits each side.


This is not a great contract. They bought ZERO years of FA. The AAV is fine, but the term ruins it.

No, they will be paying a Pending UFA top dollar at the beginning of his prime.

I think Matthews was strict on the fact he wants to end on a UFA status

Yea, but for this AAV, you would think that Toronto would be able to buy some UFA years. I guess Matthews wants out of Toronto ASAP smile

For a guy with very little leverage, Matthews is the only winner here.

they did get 1 ufa year, but I agree. AAV is fine, term is not good. if it was 7@11.634, it would be a good deal (hell even 6@), but 5 is no bueno.

A player becomes UFA at age 27 OR 7 years in NHL. Therefore when this contract expires, Matthews will be in the league for 8 years . So 1 UFA year will be burned.

Matthews probably had this as the most important part of the contract
