I'm still confused. Is it 7 or 11 per year?
I can't even imagine the Leafs being that insane. Bad signings all around. There will be no season next year and these older players are going to regress the most because of it.
Toronto has massive TV money ($23M from local and regional coverage alone) compared to the paltry $4-5M that a team like Edmonton gets for all TV coverage. That's why Ferguson called them good signings for their market. I don't know where he gets off saying the timing of the deals was right. There's going to be a lockout, this type of action from the big spenders just galvanizes the small market teams even more. It will be a long non-season.
