    Heh, that works.

    Seriously though, in the past two summers, the Habs have swapped out PK Subban & Andrei Markov for Shea Weber & Karl Alzner.

    Also, everyone in their top-6 is around, or over 30 years old. I no longer see what argument there is for that group being better than the Leafs, or even better than average league-wide.

    Looks like Draisaitl's deal with the Oilers is done. Eight years at $8.5M per season.

    I'd say that's extremely good news for the Leafs, when it comes to their eventual negotiations with Nylander & Marner.

    Could have been pretty tough cap-wise if Draisaitl's deal had ended up with a double-digit AAV.

    I think we can get our big-3 locked up for $27 - $30 million/year cumulatively. Which is a lot, but hardly crippling.

    draisaitl's mcD-inflated stats should help us in negotiations.

    If the big-3 all continue to be high-end 1st line talents, and with some of the supporting pieces we have signed to good deals, you can easily live with that.

    And that's even if the cap only keeps creeping up by a couple of million every year, and you don't have any more big jumps at some point.

    Why is that good news? I was hoping for Marner and Nylander closer to $7M. I think this hurts us, actually.

    The only argument is that McDavid boosted his stats, but you can probably make the same argument about Matthews with Nylander.
