Ugh ... yes. I had a short term deal in my head, but it's a middle term deal. Either way, it's not the full 7 (or 8) you'd expect for a high profile UFA defenseman. And without bonuses, it should the kind of contract you can move if you need to.It’s a 4 year deal Jeffbear. Isn’t it?
Could also have been waiting on Williams’ decision to pull the trigger on this.
Umm .. no. Both of those are WAY too much to pay for a guy who is about a millimeter from being a massive draft bust. Plus you CANNOT sign a free agent and then trade the guy. You'd never sign another free agent in the history of ever. I mean, maybe you could deal Faulk for Puljujarvi plus a pick and then stash Puljujarvi somewhere until he's proven his head isn't permanently lodged up his own backside ... but even then, it's probably too much.If the Canes are trying to get Puljujarvi out of this, maybe swinging either Faulk or Gardner with our without a pick to Edmonton for Jesse
Just a website thing...it has since been rectified. Plus, you don't sign a veteran free agent, make a big deal on social media about his signing and then trade him right away if you ever want to sign another veteran free agent in the future.Is this some sort of clue that although there is an article on the Cane site, it isn't linked to the scrolling headlines from the main page? like, don't get used to him being here... he won't be here long..?
It’s also for the same AAV as is previous 5 year deal with the Leafs. So no raise.Ugh ... yes. I had a short term deal in my head, but it's a middle term deal.

Toronto media propped up the idea that Gardiner would get 7 years at $7 mil, so they’re in shock now. Wait, no they aren’t because Toronto media never does introspection or self analysisIt’s also for the same AAV as is previous 5 year deal with the Leafs. So no raise.
No kidding. I know they already hate Bergevin, but that meathead is STILL doing press Q and As banging on about the Aho offer and today the idiot stood up and announced that they made an offer to Gardiner. You aren't doing yourself or your fans any favors, Marc ... excuse me, favours. You look increasingly inept, if fact. More concerned with covering your butt than doing your job.This is a rough summer for Habs fans.
to say the least...they've missed the ball that last two off seasons. Screwed the pooch on the Aho offer sheet, haven't signed any significant players this off season and then there was the Karl Alzner miss. Molson is not spending money and Bergevin doesn't know how to use it when he does!This is a rough summer for Habs fans.
