What would it cost us in picks if we offered PK Suban a contract the Habs would be hard pressed to match? They have a tough cap situation right now and cant exercise a buyout until the offseason.
I'm not saying we should do it. Just curious about the cost to us.
Did rfa rules change?
I wouldn't give up that first unless we could get a reliable goalie, and right now the only guy that comes to mind is Luongo.
Loungo and Subban for a 1st, 2nd, 3rd (for Subban if he gets $4.7m-$6.2m), Kadri, Bozak, and Percy is pretty decent. That D core would be filthy for years to come, plus Subban could be walking distance to the Sportsnet studios. Win-Win
But looking at it logically i don't see it happening. They (MTL) have a little under $4.2m to work with this summer add in the Gomez buy-out , which WILL happen, and they are good to go. As of right now they have $6m and could easily afford him.
It would be a pretty ballsy move for Burke, but would definitely win back some die hard leaf fans. I'm sure fans would love to see the leafs stick it to the Habs but unless Marc Bergevin has suffered a recent blow to the head, i think Subban will be a had for a few more years.
I hate Subban on the Habs, but would love him here. No way it happens though. They will lock him up long term probably before Jan. 19
NHL Pokemon logo's for the win.
Maple Leafs and Steelers fan for life.
They might just give him a 2 yr deal...I dont know if he deserves a.longterm big money deal yet
I was more asking if the rfa rules changed, and thanks for the info. We'll have to see how things go. It would be interesting though if they changed things up to make the RFA market more active.
Lot`s of speculation that Reilly could make the team out of camp. Dreger says that Gardiner will be out a while and speculated the Leafs are interested in letting him play up here. Carlyle said that they have no worries playing him in the NHL (Reilly).
Hey, i don`t like it either but that`s what is in the news. Leafs also might sign Ranger to a big-league deal, Dallas Eakins was talking to the media and said he expects to lose a few players to call-ups and or signings, Ranger was one he mentioned.
The team is in trouble with bodies on the back end. They need to sign someone. They have no choice. Really hoping Rielly stays down but they might give him the 9 games or so unt Gardiner can come back.
I think Sportsnet has a list of UFAs. I need to check it out.
