I think he'll stay in NJ for somewhere in the ballpark of 5 million, give or take a million. I would hate to see him leave. Free agents leaving New Jersey never works out as well they planned(not counting parise). I would had to see him go to a team and be placed in the wrong role and not succeed.

My friend knows Clarkson personally.

From what I understand it is NJ or Toronto as the only two options for him. I don't think he would choose any other team, even if they had a massive offer.

I don't think either. I think Clarkson is exactly the type of guy that makes outrageous money in free agency, then about a year or two later, starts making "worst contract" lists.

I'd love this but I can see more of a 5x4.75

Just want to revisit this a little in the wake of Getzlaf/Perry signing and Weiss being shut down for the year (I think that slightly hurts his value).

Clarkson and Horton now become arguably the top 2 UFA forwards on the market.

Think this changes Clarksons position? I mean... every UFA gets overpaid but he's now in a position to really have some leverage when negotiating.

5 years at $5.5M I'm guessing.

Well, Perry's off the list. Clarkson congratulations you are the new target for Leaf fans.

JVR-Weiss-Kessel
Lupul-Kadri-Clarkson
Kulemin-Grabovski-Frattin
Komarov/McClaren-McClement-Orr

If he tells Devils he wants to come to the Leafs we can swap you UFA rights for MacArthur.

leaf fans seem to be insistent on spending $50mil for forwards and $10mil for defense and goaltending combined

scoring is not the issue!

My calculations are more like 40 mil on forwards and 20 mil on D and goalies. Might of underquoted on some but that line ups very possible. Bozak and Mac aren't paid that much less than Weiss and Clarkson and we roll with that line up comfortably.

Don't know about every (that's more fans just wanting every), but legitimately linked to a good chunk is because the majority from Ontario that grew up Leaf fans. Home town advantage (even though we rarely utilize that advantage in recent years.)
