If we lose Kessel next year because of this inconsistent grinder (and Bozak's lame contract), Nonis needs to be fired.
if bozak and his ****** play is worth 4.2m, then clarkson and his 30 goal potential and all his D and intangibles is easily worth 5+

Oh God I can't wait to hear the term and value for this deal! I love free agent frenzy.

This deal looks bad though.

I don't think Clarkson is anything special--he had one year where everything went in for him, and that's it.

A lot of term & money for a third liner.

Maybe this will get people in Toronto talking about how silly it was to get rid of Burke instead of parroting media opinion who simply enjoy sticking it to Burke for not treating them like the sensitive little children they are.

Just under 6 million for a 40 point guy, the times we live in...

Like spending $200k at an American automaker dealership (Dodge/Chevy/Ford/Pontiac etc.). You have lots of money, but you are getting ****** cars.

What was the point of the lockout again? This is ridiculous. It's almost like Toronto missed out on a couple guys and said wait we'll just throw something at the wall until it sticks

He's a little bit of an upgrade over Grabovski and MacArthur. We probably won't even make the playoffs next year because we made no improvements in our defense and we now have Columbus and Detroit to worry about.

Dammit Nonis

He's definitely going to get more than Clowe. You don't even have to look at the money to start laughing. 7 years? I'm not even going to justify this one. I'm laughing along with everyone else. Nonis probably hit his head rolling off the bed this morning.

What a total ****ing joke.

terrible.

I just knew the Leafs were going to be the suckers to sign Clarkson.

We just made him our highest paid forward, and he's going to be in tough to keep a top-6 spot even in year 1 of this 7 year deal.

unbelievably bad.
