IF in fact Mccabe gets 5.5 to 6 million, then the Leafs just made up for signing Kaberle to that amazing contract.

I dont know how Kaberle's deal is structured, but his average is 4.25 million. What a steal. Mccabe's contract is as bad as St Louis's contract.

How's the guys +/- ? I have plenty of Leaf Fans as friends and they say yeah he can score on the PP but he gives the puck away in brain farts just as many times, if not more. Is he their Brisebois?

With this release of the McCabe signing news, the Leaf board currently resembles Jonestown, Guyana (circa. Nov 18, 1978)

They should have offloaded him at the trade deadline for some draft picks or something and signed someone like kubina, I think that Kaberle is a more consistant and valueble player for the leafs.

I don't see it on TSN yet, but there is talk on the Leafs board that the deal includes a "No Movement Clause" which would bar McCabe from being traded or even waived.

On a 1-2 year deal, maybe $5.5 Million is reasonable. But FIVE years, at $5.5 - $6 Million is a little much.

Well you won't hear me complain about a sketchy contract for Toronto. Look out for Markov next Summer though .

No big surprise here

It was no secret that McCabe was looking for 5 + millions and at least 3 + years.I would never have signed him to the contract that the Leafs just gave him but i'm just not surprised that this is what he got , especially after the Richards contract.

My guess now is that Redden will get 6.5 and Chara near the max so we can already forget them here

Kubina is looking more and more interesting now......

That's also how i see it , with 5-6M the Leafs could hardly remplace McCabe with someone better so why not just keep him around ? The power play is a crucial aspect of the game and a top unit can get you in the playoffs. 5 years is a LOT and might bite you later on but for next year is should be OK.

Except that this team did NOT make the playoffs. So bringing back all the same players (-Belfour) but paying everybody more money isn't gonna seolve their problems.

Instead of signing Mcabe for 6 mil, they should have dealt him for picks at the deadline and used the money to get 2 or 3 good players to shore up their weak *** 3rd and 4rth lines and 2nd and 3rd pairing defenseman

There is now way in hell that Markov will command 7-8 mil unless he have a career year next season.And it must not be your average career year but one that will show that he is a top 5 defensemen in the NHL.Could happen but i seriously doubt it.

If not and he really wants 7-8 M , well as much as i love him i would say goodbye to him.

(out of my mind)?
not for atleast another couple hours yet


but in 2 years time imagine the salry demands ufa's will be commanding . the salary cap in 2 years will be? 55 million?
i mean when mccabe gets that kinda money were in trouble

i see what fergerson is trying to do signing long term deals trying to save money over time as he even knows salarys are goona continue to go up for the good players . this i expect alot more of
as team will try to sign there best player long term

like i was saying last week about signing all our young guys like higgins to 4 or 5 year deals and getting them locked up .

you know something if these players (the goodones) continue to get 7 - 8 - 9 million a season there goona have to expand the leauge so they will all be able to get under the cap maybe this is where it's all going more expansion

if it does indeed be close to 6, I will be so pissed. I'm already pissed that he's resigned for so long. One of the most overrated D man in the league.

do you expect markov to improve over the next 2 yrs?
i know i do ..and that is going to cost us big time ..
if markov was a ufa tonight you would be givin him mccabe's salary instead of the 2 million he is making now

... in 2 years time add a extra 1.5 -2 million ...yes i see 7 million for markov

I'm not saying that it's impossible but i doubt that it will happen.

There is no doubt in my mind that Markov will continue to improve but to the level of the Lidstroms and Charas of this world (who will both command 7-8/max) ?? I'm not sure about that.

That would definitively be nice though

And no i wouldn't give 6 millions to Markov for 5 years with a no movement clause right now if he was UFA.I would not have given it to McCabe either for the record.

His play might not warrant that, but his shiny stats do. ppg defensemen who plays 28 min a night. 6M seems just about right.
The biggest overpayments now we're Khabibulin, Iginla, Lecavalier, St. Louis and Richards.

well hopefully when it comes time to sign markov all the other teams will be maxed out like tampa thats who will drive his salary

i see the rangers rumoured to offer chara 8 million this year . i know the guy is good but how many cups and how far has he got ottawa in the playoffs?

man i honeslty think there should be a clause in there for special players . chara is good but for darn sure not 8 million a year good.


id take neideymer 6.75 from the ducks anyday over chara
