Are you kidding?

#1 He is a first line center, something the Leafs are 3 or 4 years from developing. To obtain one you would be paying a very similar amount and thats if the player wants to come

#2 He signed that contract before he was 35 therefore it's off the books if he retired and guys like Vinnie generally don't overstay their welcome

#3 He is only 30 years old

#4 You don't offer crap like you did to get a number one center, by doing that you insult the Lightning
