Yes. The two way top-6 winger with 27 goals is better than the 3rd/4th line center with 25 points.

You goddamn idiot.

Boyle is a good 4C

Marleau is a good 1st line winger.

Carry on

This signing, of Marleau, hearkens back to the days when the leafs were handing out "Retirement Contracts" in the 80's and 90's ............ to aging, past their prime players who just wanted to finish out their careers in toronto.
- D0PPELGANGER


Except...

They gave up no young players or prospects
The contract won't interfere with signing the guys they will need to re-sign
They didn't trade youth for a futile glory run that ultimately hurts the team down the road.

... Let's see, who gave up a younger, better, player and a high pick as part of their futile glory run that netted them the coveted 28th pick?

Don't go full Spatso, Dopps. If you want to say he is overpaid, fine, we will all admit that. The fact is, it doesn't matter and you are barking up the wrong tree if you think you can argue that it does.

Instead... how about you or Spatso explain the issues you both want to ignore...

What do you do with those horrible Phaneuf Smith and Ryan contracts? What if MacArthur doesn't retire?

More importantly, and related...

How are you going to re-sign Karlsson. Do you think he is going to settle for 8 or 9 million??

Funny, when Boyle was aquired by the leafs, he was the best player in the NHL, and was going to do wonders for the leafs ............... it was heralded as the best deadline deal on the season...........


Just like the signing of a 38 year old Marleau to a typical "leaf retirement contract" ........ it's the best contract signing in the history of free agency.

You trollonto fans really have to dig deep in a desperate attempt to justify the "leaf retirement contract" signing of a 38 year old (when season starts) ............ Karlsson's contract has 20 more years left to run on it, and nothing can be done about until this time next year at the earliest.

Yes, it will be an important issue for the Sens, in a year from now ........... but you're just using this, because you need to find someway to spin this questionable signing, into a somewhat acceptable context for the leafs run at the Cup ...........


This signing, has now raised the bar for the leafs Cup aspirations ............. they are NOW in "Win Now" mode.



Marleau signing signifies Leafs in win-now mode


For those who take a glass-half-empty view of the move, there’s this: Because Marleau is a player in the age 35-plus category, the website capfriendly.com states that the Leafs would get no cap relief in the event they opt to buy out Marleau, who will be 40 when the deal expires.

http://www.torontosun.com...ies-leafs-in-win-now-mode







Salary cap pushes Leafs into win-now mode:


Marleau, the third free agent 36 years of age or older to join the club on the weekend, was sought after by Lou Lamoriello because the Leafs GM understands that Nashville demonstrated just how close to winning many other teams are, and because he knows this window opened by Matthews, Nylander and Marner may shut much more quickly than most believe.
