<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Trevorchef</b></div><div>Well... for starters, let me say this. It isn't so much that I don't like the additions that you've made here. The contrary is actually true. I like the players that you have added.

I just don't see it as enough change to make a difference.

There is a larger problem that keeps getting pushed under the rug in most of these posts. The Leafs are spending 40 million dollars on four forwards. As much as I like the players, I believe that is a poor dispersal of financial resources.

I think that all of their salaries are for the most part reasonable dollar values. (Perhaps Marner is slightly overpaid but, that is another story for a day long since past IMO).

I think it would be in the team's best interest to trade one of those salaries to properly allocate finances better. (I know that is not a popular opinion and so be it).

Tavares has a no move. Matthews isn't going anywhere and after Dubas' comments about Marner, neither is he. Who does that leave?

I really, really like Nylander. So much so that, were it up to me, I'd rather trade Marner and use his 11 million dollars of cap space to shore up in other areas. We all know that isn't happening. So there does that leave us. Basically right here with what you have produced, or something similar, which to me, just isn't good enough. (Again, that is my opinion and I know it isn't a shared one for the most part).

I could go a lot deeper but, I'm not going to. Lets just say, that there isn't anything that terrible about what you have produced here, and agree to disagree as you have already said. YOu've gotta give something of quality to get something of quality and for the most part, what you have here just doesn't move the needle enough for me to believe that things will be any different.

Fair enough?

I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.</div></div>

fair enough, I can see where you're coming from. Pre-covid it looked like the cap was on a steady incline making the big 4s contracts look not so bad in years 3-5/6.

I'd love to see them do it with the big 4 but if they can't Marner should be the first to go. hopefully the return is close to fair and nothing like the AGM's on here where the leafs retain 1.5 mill and get a second liner and a 1st rounder in 2022.
