<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>PleaseBanMeForMyOwnGood</b></div><div>That is the era Dubas lives in, young players contribute more and the cap is higher. I agree that JFJ got a raw deal, mainly because owner ship wanted to win no matter what but your thoughts on Dubas are just out to lunch. Anyone that doesn't see future problems with those short term Bridge deals signed over the summer is just willfully ignoring what those are going to mean. They will 100% not mean guys like Tkachuk sign in 3 years for 9 million a year for 8 years. They are going to want huge money and term. Look at Meier and tell me his deal is anything short of terrible. He had 1 30 goal 60 point season and he's going to make 10 million when his contract is up or walk to FA. His QO will be 10 million. What's Laine going to demand on his next deal when the US TV deal and Seattle expansion both add revenue to the league? Remember when everyone said Nylander was overpaid and should be making 3.5 million? What a joke that was. Dubas had been terrific. The ones that don't see that still think if you are a huge and rough team you can win. How is that working out for LA?</div></div>

Nylander has always been compared with other guys from his Draft: low $6's - Elhors and Larkin, mid $6's - Pastranek and Nylander's agent favorite - Draisaitl (mid $8). Would have been nice not to have Nylander have his 1 season entry level slide and he could have signed in the same summer as Elhors and Larkin but Nylander can be a $7 player with the Elite center, take away the Elite center and the Leafs got a Elhors skill/money value level player.

Dubas $47 million Top 6 forward group compared to the $18 million Top 6 Dman group is totally whacked out.
