People are judging his contract way to fast, im not a big fan of his contract but if he does what he did for Devils, its worth it. He plays a hard game where hes a pain in the ass to other teams and he can score. He will fit in so nicely in our system! just watch. that second line of Lupul-Kadri-Clarkson will be awesome!

Guy is a warrior and plays the style of game that the Leafs do. He's from the area and wants to be here.

I don't give a crap about the contract, he's a perfect fit for this team.

Next year will be the first full season of a real TML team in quite awhile. Toronto likes gritty physical play, that's how the city likes it. Clarkson is going to be loved here.

Who cares about the contract? 5mil will be nothing 4-5 years from now anyway.

Don't mind the cap hit just the term. But that's the only way you get him in the first place.

Can't wait to see him play for us. He was a thorn in our side every time we played the Devils - nice to have him on our side.

I'm not really a fan of the cap hit or term, but I won't declare it a bad signing until I see him play for a couple years first. Hoping he proves me wrong!

No denying the kind of player he is, I'm just afraid of him not being able to keep it up.

I just hope everyone doesn't jump on him and trys to run him out of town if/when he has a cold start or streak.

But its going to happen.

If he scores 20 goals and we make the playoffs I'll be happy. I don't think anyone expects him to be a 30 goal scorer, hes more of a 15 goal guy.

People are just going to have to get over his contract...like honestly, he's a Leaf we have him for 7 years folks. It's going to drive us all nuts if we keep bringing up his contract..My goodness he hasn't even played a game yet and I'm already sick of hearing about it.

He scored 15 goals in 48 games this year. That's roughly 27-28 goals in an 82 game season. I expect him to be a 25 goal scorer with all the intangibles he brings with maybe a 20 goal and 30 goal season in there.

If he resembles Tucker in any sort of way I'm going to love him. We gotta get mean, we have plenty of speed; adding a vicious third liner will go well for us I think. It's about time we had an elite third line
