I agree. If Isles continue this good play it would be a big disappointment if they cannot not land Panarin or Duchene. It's not like missing out on Matthews or a Crosby.

I highly doubt we land Panarin or Duchene. Columbus isn’t trading Panarin in division if they do at all and as far as Duchene goes I’m not sure it would be a good idea to give up what it would cost?

The same 11 million in toronto or tampa goes way further than ny because of taxes so essentially yes youre correct they are getting paid more by having less taken away by the government
- Upstate_isles


I get the less taxes in New York Vs Tampa. But Tavares getting 11 million us, when the dollar is basically $1.20 for every Canadian dollar, means Tavares is really getting 13.2 million US

Sure but also would have had to pay him at least 4 million more. I'd rather use that extra cash at the deadline to help bolster the lineup

Yes, or in other words "it's not the end of the world that he's gone"

Yes. They haven't proved anything yet. It will all depend on how the season ends. They could easily slump or flame out.

I think his point was if they get bounced in the 1st rd it would be looked upon as a negative since they were literally picked to finish near the bottom of the NHL by most people, but I do agree winning a round or two would also go a long way

Toronto has the highest tax rate of any NHL market. If he signs the same contract on literally any other team he would take home more money.
- BINGO!

This was my understanding. Toronto is also a very clean city. Maybe there's a correlation.

Exactly this is only the 1st phase of what Lou and Barry are going to do. Not saying players are going to flock here in groves after one solid season but it's not exactly hurting their chances either
- Vukota

Lou has a history of building and being a winner and while some may debate what he has done after the salary cap era he still has major clout in the league. He got toronto headed in the right direction and has done that here already just in front office and coaching staff alone. We saw what jones said about Trotz and that cant be understated either. 4th all times in wins 14 straight playoff appearances and 2 presidents trophy and a cup team in last 4 years. The guy is a proven winner and that speaks to players. As for the building other teams have always loved the atmosphere at the Coliseum and as soon as ground breaks for belmont they will be on their way to the best building in the nhl. Oh and while the wait they have on of the top practice facilities in the league so the isles new owners are doing everything correct on the front as well. In think we will land a top f.a. this offseason and may make a move before or at the trade deadlone

What.


The Canadian dollar is worth less than the USD.

That $11 million USD is worth $13.2 million Canadian, buuuuuut that doesn't mean much because of the higher taxes and because your money doesn't go as far in Canada as it does in the US.
