  1. If I had to pick one to go first, it would be Rantanen. Sakic has $15,615,239 in cap space and while Rantanen will ultimately get a hefty deal it won’t come anywhere near that. Sakic, when it comes to the GMs of the teams now involved with RFA impasses, is heads and shoulders above the crowd in quietly getting things in place.

  2. Leaf fans can only hope that whoever makes the final decisions does not come close to 10.5 million for Marner. If the agents and players think that is possible/probable no wonder they are waiting.

    They will be gaining from Kypreous’s previous shilling for players. Better do it now boys and agent, he will not be pumping up players value on a network that partially owns a team after today.

  3. Well besides $$$ and term, I’d bet lockout protected contract, ie still get paid or put in as little to escrow would be another sticking point in these negotiations. We all know the rich teams can do that with “signing bonuses” which are lockout proof and don’t get touched by escrow which could explain small market teams delays but in Toronto’s case, maybe the owners need more media coverage to sell ad space?

    Is it October yet?

    • Wow! You have no idea what you’re talking about! Are you also shoreorrpark?

      • Lol.
        You tipped your hand again.

  4. I’ll go with Aho! Kind of joking- not joking. I think his deal is about where all the others should be around. Give or take a million depending on length and tax situation

  5. I’ll go with Aho! Kind of joking- not joking. I think his deal is about where all the other top guys should be around. Give or take a million depending on length and tax situation

  6. Marner ‘s new deal?; if there is one to be had, is holding up the RFA forwards. The Dmen without contracts are waiting on what? who ? to sign first !
