It's not over yet. Still a couple of questions before the season:

-The big one is the future of Morgan Rielly. Speculation from reporters has indicated the Leafs are looking at two options: sign an extension this offseason or trade this offseason. Dubas has seemed to hitch his wagon to the four forwards, so that makes Rielly the only real major trading piece Toronto has to work with. If neither an extension or trade happens before the season begins, it would be a disappointment.
-Who will be shipped out in the bottom six, if anyone. Currently, the options the Leafs have are: Mikheyev, Kampf, Kase, Engvall, Simmonds, Spezza, Gabriel, Brooks, Semyonov, Robertson, Anderson, Amadio, Seney, Malgin and possibly Ho-Sang has candidates for those six positions. Some of these guys didn't sign to play for the Marlies so the Leafs may be looking at trading away a few of them, possibly to Detroit to the ire of their obnoxious ACGM fans.

As for what's already been done, I think this offseason so far has been entirely average. Losing Hyman sucks, but a 29 year old player with 2 knee injures for 8 years just isn't a wise investment of money. Same goes for Foligno and Andersen. Bunting is a fantastic signing, Mzraek is a decent goaltender, Kampf and Richite are great bottom-six options and Kase is an interesting signing; essentially a gamble on someone who can produce with low minutes.

The Leafs have their work cut out for them this season. They decided getting through the playoffs the easy way wasn't palatable so I hope they enjoy doing it the hard way.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>Letang was a UFA on his 3rd deal. Stop trying to shift goal posts. His 3rd deal has nothing to do with anything.
No one, and I do mean no one, was handing out contracts like Dubas did. Everyone knows that broke the seal.
You are over here trying to compare Crosby, Malkin, guys like OV to Mitch Marner.....
There use to be a standard to get paid like that.
Backstrom got 6.7 not million.
Even the numbers don't work out 11.28% to 13.38% of cap value.
Just admit it. You're bonehead GM that you want to claim is so smart because he's short like you and wears glasses like you, isn't all to smart.

Every example you listed there is horrible. Not to mention the fact you are talking about guys who were playing for a cup. When the F did marner ever get out the 1st round?
Kane 6.3mil 11.09%
Toews same exact deal as Kane.

Drai 8.3 11.33% of the cap.

But go on. Tell us all how Marner should have been paid over 13% of the cap?
Tell us how that made sense for ANYONE?
Tell us short dude with glasses, hows that math worth?

Go sit down you're not smart.</div></div>

Letang's third deal is more comparable to this Werenskicontract than anything Dubas has done lmao.

It's honestly remarkable how incensed you are about Kyle Dubas. Like, you'd make a great Toronto Sun columnist. Maybe you need to sit down and take a breather.

Dubas signing Marner to 2% more of the cap hit compared to guys like Backstrom and Draisaitl didn't break the league. Backstrom got his contract after his record breaking team was knocked out of the playoffs by the Canadiens in the first round. Oilers hadn't done anything when Draisaitl signed his. Toews and Kane signed their deals prior to their cup. Toronto obviously signed Matthews and Marner with the expectation that they'd do well in both the regular season and the playoffs. Marner lead the team in points prior to signing; they carries a lot of weight in negotiations.

It wouldn't matter all that much either if the pandemic didn't occur. I don't think Marner should be making over 10 million but as I've said, I'm not the GM of the Maple Leafs. I also don't think it broke the league like you did. These guys were probably going to get more in a non-pandemic situation.

I reckon your next post will be a string of insults so I'm done. Goodnight. You can have the last word or whatever makes your feel better. I'm not going to change your mind and you're obviously getting a high off of thinking you're winning an internet argument on capfriendly. Don't want to waste any more time.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>I know you have a hard time accepting reality. But Nylander and Marner are not Crosby and Malkin.
You started handing piles of cash to RFAs who shouldn't have been handed piles of cash.
Which started the trend of that happening.
I know you think because you are short and wear glasses that you are smart, but really you're failing.

Yes the penguins gave 8.7 million contracts to Crosby and Malkin.
But they handed Letang 3.5. Not 11!
I'm sorry you don't get that, but if you want to pop off, you can start by comparing apples to apples and oranges to oranges with you're think your so smart mouth.
But hey, keep being in denial about how you paid every accessory piece to the team an absurd amount of money. It's why your team is always up against the cap and unable to have the depth to get over the hump.
You clearly haven't learned the mistakes yet.</div></div>

Leafs paid more for another guy on that list closer to Crosby and Malkin. My point was Dubas didn't start the trend, a number of players got high salary deals off of their ELCS: Backstrom, Toews, Kane, Draisaitl, etc. If you seriously think that Kyle Dubas had such an influence over NHL signings that giving Marner a ton of money is the reason that guys like Jones and Werenski (who by the way, aren't coming off of ELC) are making over 9 million, then I'd hate to see your most recent MRI.

Look up what Letang got on his third contract as well, specifically the percentage of cap hit. It's in the same range as Werenski. Since of course were comparing apples to apples and oranges to oranges, it'd be fairer to compare defenseman on their third contracts as opposed to forwards on their seconds, would it not? So why bring up Dubas in the first place?

Also, I'm not Kyle Dubas.
