I'm guessing there will be a lot of "no's" with this.

Guy is staying, all that matters. Not my money that's being spent.

Perfect.
Decent term - Great AAV.

Leafs haters in shambles.
Voting no is just outing yourselves

Just gonna edit this in so people can understand why this is a great deal.
4 years ago when we were working on the last AM contract, they were talking about 8 years at 13.8 avv (same % as McDavid). Evidence
Instead we went with the 5@11.634 that turned into 11.640,250, and now another 4 at 13.25.
That averages out to 9 years at 12.35aav instead of the 8 years at 13.8aav.
THIS IS A HUGE WIN

Avs fans have got to be really pleased with the MacKinnon contract after seeing this.

Matt got Half the term and more money and he's an arguably worse player.

Get paid now, then sign a long deal in ARZ for a little less and make them relevant. Still won't win a cup with the Leafs

I know everyone’s saying he’s going to the Coyotes after his contract ends.

Let’s be real, he’ll be lucky if the Coyotes are still a thing by then.

No they don't.
Besides - We aren't paying for the decline - just the raw upside of the age curve

The AAV is honestly a steal for what Matthews brings to the Leafs, and since I believe that the Leafs are gonna be rebuilding in 4-5 years I don't see the term not being longer than 4 years as an issue what so ever.
Very good signing by the Leafs.

Looks like Matthews was gunning for a shorter team deal all the way. If that's the case and signing him for longer wasn't feasible, the Leafs did well to get their best player under contract and not risk going into the season with Matthews as a pending UFA.

Leafs did really well here, We knew he was gonna get medium term as has been reproted for the past year and half by Friedman, and he was gonna get more the Macks AAV,

13.25 is a pretty good number with the cap going up substantially over the next few years.

Think people are overeacting, that just me tho

If he stays they'll absolutely be paying for the decline. Fully expect him to get 15 x 8 when he's 29 and his wrist is busted.
