  1. Leafs sign John Tavares

    There's been a lot of talk about Tavares and Stamkos and the tax situation between playing in Toronto vs playing in the US. A recent Forbes article shows that Tavares could play for Toronto and still pay New York taxes, or even 'relocate' to Florida and pay zero state taxes. https://www.forbes.com/sites/seanpackard/2018/07/06/john-tavares-could-save-nearly-12-million-in-taxes-on-his-new-contract/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
  2. Smart, plays two ways, good skater. Quality bottom 6 guy at league minimum. Good signing.

    Ugh... McDonagh - EKHedman - StralmanSergachev - Foote

    And Olympic participation.
  5. If the Leafs do intend to play Marner with Tavares it would behoove them to sign him to a contract this summer, even if it means bridging him for 2-3 years. Tavares has significantly boosted the production of linemates his entire career in NYI. Players like Moulson, Vanek, Okposo, and PA Parenteau have seen production rise by 20-25 points per 82 games with Tavares compared to their career production without him. Even by superstar standards, John Tavares may be underrated. Here’s why Given this, and Marner's natural progression, he could push the 90-100 point range.
  6. Defensive stats

    Get a subscription to The Athletic. Very advanced stat focused reporting, but written in a way that makes it easy to understand.

    Senators Assistant GM Randy Lee facing multiple accusations of sexual harassment.
  8. Martin and Komarov combine for $5.5M cap hit. 50% of Tavares' cap hit.

    Apparently their asking price for a generational defenceman in his prime is: Take Bobby Ryan too.

    James Neal to Calgary. 5 years. $5.75M AAV.
  11. Leafs sign John Tavares

    Unveiling of the Marlies first ever jersey's in 2005. JT, then a member of the GTHL Toronto Marlboro's, is on the far right. Standing in front of JFJ is Connor Brown.
  12. It's going to be tight but I can see how the Leafs can keep their forward core together. I used an $81.5M cap for 2019-20 on CapFriendly. Gardiner will likely be the big loss. One of Nylander or Marner will likely be given a bridge deal, likely Nylander. That will get Marleau's $6.25M off the books by the time he is due a big payday. Have to get Matt Martin off the books as well...Robidas Island? The 4th line will be replacement level guys, each making under $1M. Not a big deal really, with their top 9 the 4th line may only play 5 minutes a night.
  13. Leafs sign John Tavares

    The Islanders don't meet the requirements to offer sheet Nylander. Unless they sign him for $10.1M+ AAV, in which case the compensation would be 4 1st round picks. The Isles don't have their own 2nd, 3rd, or 4th round picks for the 2019 draft.
