LOL, rag on me for connecting the dots to the thread to the Leafs and than uses his next comment to mention the Leafs.
Didnt really mention Toronto at all just said expect Rielly and Klingberg to sign for 6.5mill x 8 years as those 2 are the last big Dman free agents for next season. Never said it would be with their respected teams.
?? Who do you think gets the money if the players don't?
Sorry should have specified that playing hockey is not about making money. The business side of it obviously is but the players should just be thankful they are blessed to play the best game on the planet in the best league on the planet
Regardless of whether Pulock himself is worth this contract (which he is just making a point to those who say no), this contract isn't just about Pulock. This guarantees the Pulock/Pelech combo for 8 years. THAT is worth every penny of this contract plus a couple mil to each of them.
I hate this "agent must be fired" talk. It's nonsense. If every single player on the Isles roster is taking slightly less to build the deepest possible team, then no one's actually getting "shafted" here.
A lot easier to imagine the Isles pursuing an actual LD2 next year now. Wow, the Pelech-Pulock defensive pair, one of the leagues best, both on absolute bargain contracts. Good time to be an Isles fan.
Then why didnt hecsign for league minimum?
Cause your wrong, but hockey is not just about making money.
Great argument… The real question is why you’d bring up his agent needing be fired when maybe this is the deal Pulock wanted to sign. Perhaps he was completely comfortable signing at a discount because he’s a good guy and the money is of little concern to him. I always respect players who sign at a discount, shows they care much more about hockey than money.
