However, committing 7+ million to him on perhaps a max-contract is not a smart move unless you clear out the overpaid secondary players, namely, Grabovski, Liles, and MacArthur. I would have also included Lupul, but I guess the Leafs think he is a core piece.
The reason that you need to get rid of these secondary players is because it's agreed that Phil Kessel is a piece you build around, but not
piece you build around. The financial cap space can go to better players and needs to be saved and/or used on these kinds of players.
The Leafs need to be smarter. Sometimes I think it's just one big joke with how they piss away money.
