Let’s say Carlson’s camp passes on the #Caps 8x8 (for now). What would another team have had to offer on July 1? 7x ... 9? 10? Even 7x10 is only $6 mil more. Any offer probably would’ve needed crazy front-loaded/lockout proof $$ for them to not just go back to 8x8 and stay put.
Cory massiak

Similar logic may prevail for #Isles -- if they offered 91 8x11, need to get to 7x12.5 to make $ even match https://t.co/dbtPoulto

Meh. Why not 13 or 14 then? Same thing with the useless and stupid, unnessecary Mayfield and Pelech contracts. Whats a million hwre or there? It adds up and eight years is a long time... He's not that player no mattwr how much I love the guy and I would be willing to bet that barzal IS that guy and I'm more concerned with being able to sign him and if that 1 or 2 million may or may not prohibit that then Tavares can go much to my dismay. If he's all about winning he should understand that signing one of the most lucrative contracts in NHL history will seriously prohibit that from happening.

Because it’s not going to take that much. No team would offer him that. But $12M per could be something another team does. I’d youre willing to pay $10M-$11M per, why draw the line at $12M? At $10M-$11M per he’s worth it, but not for one more million per?

Losing Tavares is the precursor to another rebuild. If you’re okay with another rebuild, then letting JT go over a million bucks is fine

He is out east. So am I. It sucked almost all day today.

7 was being sarcastic, but forgot to hit the winky face button to designate his comment accordingly.

No I wasn’t out there today JS. I was in Smithtown and it was sunny most of the day.

That logic eludes me. How do you know another team won't offer more than $12MM? And if they do, are you willing to pay $13MM? If not, then you're willing to lose JT over $1MM, too.

I forgot about sunny Smithtown. When it's cloudy in Nassau County and the East End, you can always count on it being sunny in Smithtown.

I posted it before the isles offering 8x11 means they have to offer 7x12.5. Actually hornick did

Yup, I get that. I was dealing with a specious argument that keeps popping up around here. The idea that, if you're willing to pay X for a player, then you should be willing to pay X + a million more, because do you want to lose Player A over a million bucks?

All this money talk and 1 million more or 2 million less, I don’t think it matters to JT. I think he wants to play where he can win and where he and his wife want to be. I’m telling ya, if she doesn’t like being on LI he is gone.

I'm not ok with another rebuild I want to win a half dozen years ago BUT I don't want to not win or overpay a player to a long term contract on a team of overpaid players on long term contracts. I see your point I get what you're saying I just feel 11 million is the furthest I would go. I think that's too much and I say that being a big fan of Tavares. I think that's overpaying him in all honesty and I say that knowing what him leaving will do and means to the franchise.

I doubt very much they would have just bought a 5 million dollar home on long island if she hates it. This story has many layers that's not one of them.

Love the guy but (frank) no. If Toronto pays that it'll absolutely cripple their team and it will be without a cup at the end. A small part of me albeit a small one almost wants to see that happen. (frank) the Leafs.
