Nice work by Dubas. Gio and Liljegren as a pair for $2.2M is fantastic.

We can finally put the offer sheet posts to rest.

Great signing to get done before OS can even be thought about, lines up with Muzzin expiring as well

Huge W signing, good value for a developing player who could blossom into something big.

Great signing. I was thinking closer to 1.8 given Dermott got 1.5, but wow 1.4 is a steal for Lili. Him and Gio were our best pair for most of the post deadline season and they only cost us 2.2 mil for the next 2 years. Huge W

Maybe, maybe not. Hard to command more when you only have 1 full season under your belt and don't have arbitration rights.

As long as he continues to improve, his next contract will be much bigger.

This deal essentially saves cap space based on expectations/comparables...
Most people were expecting 1.5-2m.

Great value and sets the bar low for Sandin

Assuming the Leafs can sign Sandin for a similar deal and less than what Holl is making, the Leafs could trade Holl and start Liljegren and Sandin in the top 6. Saving cap space while arguably improving.

I bet they still hang onto Holl unless they find someone a touch cheaper to be their depth defenseman.

I was hoping for a 3 year deal but the AAV on this deal is lower than I anticipated so I guess it's pretty good.

Lines up with Muzzins contract expiration either way so I'm a fan

I thought at least 1.55 mill like Valimaki and at most 2.5 mill like Jokiharju

This be a steal especially for what he was doing this year and with Gio can't wait to see how his growth continue

Expecting Sandin to be signed next for around the same
