Not sure the type of contract Mac is bringing to the table but one would have to think his camp would know the limits of what the Leafs are willing to match.

I have a feeling that salary is not the question here but term
I'm curious about salary evaluation as well. I hope they don't use the current FA signings in their decisions. Free agency is a specific event where supply and demand affect the price of the contract. As the player under arbitratrion is RFA, they obviously couldn't use any overpayments that come to UFAs as a comparable.

Am I wrong?
