Schenn has shown great physicality and presence with his play for a young guy.

I don't think he will ever be a Norris candidate, but if they can improve his skating he should be a #1 guy on most teams.

I'm thinking 3.5M cap hit for 3-4 years. Good deal for Toronto.

You don't want to give a 4 year deal since he would be a UFA by time it's finished

he'll be making at least 3 million per.

Hell nah, you structure it so he is either an RFA at the end of the deal or you buy multiple UFA years.

Luke is going NOWHERE as long as Burke is GM atleast not as a UFA myabe if somebody overpaid in a trade but Brian Burke will NOT allow Luke to walk for nothing thats why a deal over 4 years while ideal is not neccessary.

Burke would re sign him to a new deal no question.

I'm not certain about that. He for sure would want to play in a city like Philly, especially considering they are competitive every season.

I wouldnt be shocked if he gets a deal done that takes him to free agency.

Tampa Bay should put in an offer sheet for Schenn. I don't think the Leafs have the money to match a $4.5M offer sheet...

Would make sense. The worst that could happen is the Leafs match and then we get to hear Burke's reaction. Which is always gold.

I am sure he can't wait to sign a long term deal @ discount with the Flyers who would not want to play in Columbus

Yeah only way we don't match is if Burke is 100% Lombardi is done and Komi is GTFOing .. say hello to Mr. Stamkos, Toronto.

And we can match it easy. BTW
He going to cost you more draft picks.

ya we can quite easily actually seeing as you can go 10% over the cap in the summer and the Leafs would have no problem doing that.

Doubt you could match it. Your owner is losing money on the Leafs.

Plus Schenn doesn't like it in Toronto.

I would not want to be the next team that offer sheets Burke especially the way he has been able to control his cap.

Player's walk away all the time. Luke Schenn doesn't owe Brian Burke anything, he couldn't even move up two spots to draft his brother. Why does he have to take the contract Burke wants as a UFA? At that point, Burke wouldn't have a pot to piss in if Luke decided to walk... to Philly.

There is absolutely no reason to give a player like Luke the opportunity to walk that early. Whether we sign him for less than 4 years or more, it doesn't really matter. The only poor contract choice is 4 years in length.

Such a move would indicate very poor management skills. That kind of stupidity would get him fired if I was the owner. Schenn is an RFA, you don't have to give him 4 years if you want 3. Schenn at this point, with no arbitration rights is in Burke's back pocket. If Schenn wants 4 years, he can sit at home until he changes his tune.

I think he gets a 4 year 14 million dollar contract.

Look no further than Marc Staal's $4m X 5 year deal. Schenn is basically the exact same player that Marc Staal was a year ago.

That being said, if the deal is shorter, it will have less money at the beginning. As any reasonable person would know, young players who sign long term deals often get paid based on potential.

As for the comment that Schenn has no leverage, that's highly inaccurate. There are plenty of teams with the cap space to offer sheet him if he doesn't feel he is being valued appropriately by the Leafs.
