- Either the contract is excellent or poor in your evaluation. If it is poor, you are wrong. If it is excellent, then his term shouldn't matter in the same vein that term is exploited in cap-circumvention deals. Something the league is trying to shut the door on.

- Show comparable players at all. Who's value compares to Lu and why?

After doing that, then we have a basis for discussion. If you don't do it, then you are perpetuating the misinformation that many have already adopted. Yes, you have been the most amiable to deal with among the TO fans on this board (IMO), but it's all for naught if you continue to think the same way. isn't black and white when it comes to value. It is what a team can afford to pay. The Leafs do not have the depth to pay what Gillis wants. When i say the price is to high, i mean specifically for TO.
