Could a bridge contract settle this?:

Nazem Kadri said that “it’s not his job” to worry about the Toronto Maple Leafs’ salary cap situation on Tuesday. Saturday provides more evidence of that thought, because if Sportsnet’s David Alter’s report is correct, Kadri wants more than the Buds currently have.


Kadri’s camp reportedly began with a six-year, $36 million proposal but knocked that price down $1 million per season to $30 million. Alter reports that the Maple Leafs trotted out a very different number: two years, $6 million.


It wouldn’t be surprising if the two sides make some headway between today and training camp (if not the regular season), but this report indicates that they disagree both on term and salary.


Asking too much?


Yes, the 22-year-old said that the Leafs’ cap situation isn’t his problem, but that modified proposal would slightly eclipse Toronto’s estimated $4.9 million in room. And that’s without signing defenseman Cody Franson, who’s reportedly asking for a long-term deal of his own, according to Alter.


Kadri enjoyed what was at times a sensational 2013 season, but his overall resume is still very light at 99 regular season games. Alter reports that the team is concerned that he might have faded late in the 2013 season and playoffs, too.


Next in line


On the other hand, Kadri’s camp could argue that his request is in line with other similar Leafs signings.


David Clarkson signed that stout seven-year, $36.75 million deal (which averages out to $5.25 million per year, the same cap hit that Joffrey Lupul carries). Tyler Bozak‘s contract is for five years, $21 million. It’s reasonable to guess that Kadri will play a similar – if not larger – role than those three players.


Bridging the gap


The Maple Leafs seem most interested in a “bridge” contract, Alter reports.


PHT’s own Jason Brough believes that Kadri might have to settle for something similar to what P.K. Subban agreed to with the Montreal Canadiens during the 2013 season.


As a restricted free agent, Kadri might find himself in a holdout situation if he isn’t willing to budge. His best move could very well be to accept the Leafs’ two-year offer (maybe pushing for more than $3 million per season) and then do what he can do drive his value up for his next deal.


Either way, if the sides are truly this divided, there could still be a few more twists up ahead.

Not worth 5M+ at this point in his career. Definitely more than 3M though. I'd offer a two year deal around 4-4.5M-ish

1 year, $3.5 million.

Next year the cap goes up so Kadri can get the big money if he earns it, and the Leafs can see if he can produce consistently again.

I'm not a math professor but I just can't see how they are going to extend the players they need with their cap space

Maybe for the Sedins.

I hate these players that have 1 good year and now they expect they deserve 5 million+? He deserves 3 million-4 million. This is what happens when you sign a 3rd line grinder in Clarkson for 5 million.

Kadri should get a bridge contract. 1 year, $3-$4 million and if he proves himself then next year he gets his big boy contract.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Yeah, no kidding eh? I think one decent season is never enough to ask for what he is asking for. If he was a play-off MVP, and they went deep? Then yeah, give him the bucks. What has he proven? That he can have a good rookie season (or whatever)?

Geez, I hope our prospects don't think this way...

A point per game player deserves around 5M, but he's only had 1 good season.

1 or 2 years, 4M, see how he goes.

You do have a good point. The Leafs are gonna have to pray the cap goes up next year. Perhaps a 2 year deal for Kadri then?

yep, its funny how fast things can go downhill with your cap situation with a few bad contracts. Sad part is they bought out 2 awful contracts in komisarek and grabovski and are still in the deep end.

yeah i think the leafs probably want/need a 2 year bridge contract around 3.5-4mil/season and i doubt kadri will accept that. He would probably take that on a 1year deal but as i said if the leafs have any brains they wont let that happen as they will be up shlt creek without a paddle in the offseason.

After signing Clarkson to that contract he deserves 30 million.

I think he'll settle for a bridge contract. 2 years for 3-4 M per.

But I agree he needs a bridge contract.
