He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
Well, it looks like he will be signed soon... 2 weeks ago, the Globe and Mail reported "Negotiations with Stajan are not going well, since he is looking for $2-million a year while Fletcher is thinking around $1.6-million."
Now it's gotten to the point where he's "looking for something between $1.6 million and $2 million a year." So it sounds like he's starting to come around.
I actually read an interesting little comparison a while back between Stajan and some players who make around $2 mil. I think that it's probably going to end up around $1.7-1.8 for 3-4 years.
I know some people in the other thread said that is a bargain for Stajan with the market the way it is, but keep in mind... Zetterberg puts up 90+ points a season and he's going to be making $2.9 mil this season (made $2.7 last season).
