Leafs sign Kessel to 8-year extension at $8M per

He mentioned it on the radio, and also snuck it into 30 thoughts.

"1. Asked a few players what they thought of Scott/Kessel. The majority thought Kessel was justified in his actions. On Monday, Scott told reporters in Buffalo, "I wasn't going to try to hurt him. I was just trying to send a message." The thing is, there is no way in the moment Kessel knows that. If he gets hurt, how much does it cost him, especially since he and the team are working on a long-term extension? The one thing a couple did say was he could have skated away from Scott before puck drop. That was the only "out" he had."

His comments on the radio were along the lines of they're working on an extension, and may not be too far away

EDIT:
CP24 ‏@CP24 3m
The Toronto Maple Leafs have confirmed that they have signed Phil Kessel to an eight-year contract extension.

This is good to hear. I figured it wouldn't take long if there was mutual interest and a blank cheque being handed over.

It's certainly nice to hear but I'm taking with a grain of salt. It's a pretty vague comment. Everyone knows that obviously there'll be contract extension talks and that Kessel will want a long term deal...

Can they do 8 years yet? I thought they could only do 7, because once you include this year it's a total of 8 contract years.

8x8 is what I think we can expect to see.

8 years/66 million. If he goes UFA he'll get 7 years/65 million from somebody.

Then why would he sign for that. So he would just play the last year for 1 mill???

8 x 8 seems about right for both sides.

If Carolina secured Semin for a $7M cap hit, I reeeeeaaaally doubt anyone would offer more than $8M for Kessel.

anything under $8 per is a steal. I'm expecting slightly over $8 though

The only guys with 9m+ Cap hits have all hit 50 goals and 100+ points in one season. I highly doubt it.

Gotta sign him. You cannot allow a guy of his caliber walk. Even if you deal him, what can you expect back on an expiring deal? a late first, good prospect and throw-ins?

8x8 is my guess. Perfectly happy with that.

Hoping for 8x7.5 but wouldn't be upset with 8x8. Essentially the buyout money and salary retention money would go towards his cap hit.

Interesting. I don't know what I'd do if I were Nonis. On the one hand I definitely think he's worth 8 now, so paying 8x8 to get him would make sense, but I don't think his skillset is the type to get better with age, so he probably wouldn't be worth that money after the first three years. I guess we'll see...
