No offense to Nieuwy because he was a great player in his prime but that was a classic come home to retire as a Leaf signing that actually worked out great. But I can't believe Nieuwy was the biggest FA out there in 2003.

Yup just 4 years earlier would have been better.

Wouldn't it make more sense to assume that Perry and Getzlaf are re-signing in Anaheim until they say they aren't?

He was still a big name at the time and single handedly won us game 7 against Ottawa in '04... but ok

2001 - Pat Quinn signed Alexander Mogilny? Better?

Tell Brad Richards that. We gave him more money and more years than NYR and he still said no. Money isn't everything. I'm 99.5% sure we won't land either player.

I thought the Leafs offered him a higher salary per year, but less $$ than the Rangers did.

No.. the numbers were identical per year - Burkie just didn't want to go beyond 6 years:


Rangers Leafs
2011-12 $12,000,000.00 $12,000,000.00
2012-13 $12,000,000.00 $12,000,000.00
2013-14 $9,000,000.00 $9,000,000.00
2014-15 $8,500,000.00 $8,500,000.00
2015-16 $8,500,000.00 $8,500,000.00
2016-17 $7,000,000.00 $7,000,000.00
2017-18 $1,000,000.00
2018-19 $1,000,000.00
2019-20 $1,000,000.00

Cap hit $6,666,666.67 $9,500,000.00

So we basically lost Richards for $3M.

And oh yeah, they have Gaborik and Lundy - it kinda makes a big difference.

As for Getz, as much as I'd like it to happen, I just don't think it will - we'd have a better shot at Perry, but IMO that's a pipe dream too.

When it comes down to where a player wants to go, money really isn't everything.

Getz stays imo. If we make the playoffs or come close, I think we can make an honest run at Perry since we'll have space but we have to finish well to have a chance.

I see us having a better chance at trading for Bobby Ryan as the Ducks will sign the other two but will not be able to afford all 3. Maybe Gardiner

Not saying that we will get either, I actually think if there not going to stay in anaheim I think toronto has a good chance of landing both, however I think getzlaf will stay. But for Toronto not being attractive I think where there from could never be forgotten. Parise and Suter both signed for a team 1 place better than the leafs (6)
