He's a big, speedy winger who drives the net and throws hits.

Ryder hangs around in the slow, or on the side and can really shoot the puck. Not really the same.

6 millions for a third liner 7 years great deal indeed.

Mtl are softer yes but have a better hockey team than the leafs by a fair margin.

Bozak is slighty better than Desharnais and they will regret this deal for Clarkson. Paid 6 mil at 37 years old? Insane specially for a grinder like him. No skills whatsoever

I don't get Filosa's statement. We have enough money to take Talbot as is. Also, we'll give Philadelphia something in return, if that guy is on the roster, he makes money that makes up in part or in whole for it....

i don't care if over pay a player, you can always do something to fix that later, go for winning now that is all i care, i want to see an other cup before i die
they won't be getting free buyouts this time + we have to think about Subban and his 8M next year

Yeah and this type of signing is a primary reason why MB is attacked here. Because other teams always sign the "big" names and we sign only small players at the end of their career.

Yeah, that is one of the most brutal contracts I've seen. $35M-$40M for Clarkson? Haha. Right.

I think Grabovski is underrated because of his bad season. No way he is a passenger. He's a hard worker. He even earn himself an A on his jersey at some point. Leafs fans really appreciated him.

He is nothing like Ryder. Stalhberg is one of the fastest players in the league.

I dont want to be a debbie downer, but if the answer is Max Talbot, Matt Cooke or Asham, we are not asking the right questions.

I hate it when we always end up scraping the bottom of the barrel of UFA and sign at best lateral move players.

Tampa Bay had how many Quebec players? Got them 3rd overall pick.
