Kind of get annoyed by people grilling the leafs for overpaying their players. They are maybe paying 1mil more than what they should on that term, but tell me a team that doesn’t have at least a couple contracts that they are paying 1-2m too much on... Because say what you want about the Marner and Matthews contracts about being too high, because other than that the leafs have essentially ZERO contracts of overpaid players. (Say what you will about Ceci but let’s see him first and there was no negotiating that contract and it’s one year.) Look at all those teams that have signed UfAs in that 5-8 million range, those teams are overpaying far more than the leafs are.
Tell me a team that doesn’t have at least one guy that is making 1-2mil too much... If I’m gonna overpay for a player, I would rather do it on Matthews and Marner.
There’s my rant.
