Solid contract I think. .25 more than I expected, so not over by much.

Too much for one good year, which he ended up getting injured again. Hope he does well, but I don't think this is good for the Leafs. 5 year deal is too long for a guy who is injured pretty much every season and only has had one season that is worth 5.25 mill.

If I were the Leafs I might have tried for a shorter term and higher AAV.

Very risky for both sides, but hopefully it works out.

Yikes. The guy has some skills, no doubt, but hardly what I'd call consistent. 50/50 chance he lives up to this deal.

History of injuries and inconsistency make it a definite risk. Has been good as a Leaf though.

That's quite a bit of money for one good season... but he's definitely got the talent. We'll see how it goes.

Seems pretty risky to sign him for that long after 1 good year

This about sums it up. He seems to have some real good chemistry with Kessel, who is also locked in for a solid number of years.

Solid deal.

Leader for the Leafs on and off the ice, been great ever since he landed in Toronto. Seems to love the spotlight and handles the media exceptionally well.

Perhaps a bit overpaid but not worth losing him over a minor salary bump.

He would have likely received more on the open market.

Meh a little too high, especially since he is injury-prone.

The Leafs are in such great shape with their cap, I don't see a issue with this.

And it's not just 1 good year. He also had a very good year in Philly, and since day 1 2 years ago when he joined the Leafs, he's put up great numbers.

So glad it's 5 years. I was thinking around 5x5, so it makes sense he's gotten around that.

Great player for the Leafs, insane chemistry with Kessel. Hopefully that keeps going...he could have gotten more as a UFA.
