Poach Kapanen offer sheet him 4 mil. 5 years

don't think it is wise to go nuclear for a mid level talent

if that option/tool is to be used

have to use it on mariner

so that the fall out is worth it

let some other team provide a back up offer sheet to kapanen

to ensure the leafs will get badly harmed

I dont think Marner would take an offer to leave Toronto... I honestly believe he would accept less to stay and they will find a way to make it happen. Hometown kid... There's no way he leaves.

Would you trade Marner? It's as simple as that...

 

You probably have a better shot at landing Matthews as Tavares make him a bit redundant

 

They most likely regret signing Marleau now...

 

Dubas prolly shold have shipped out Nylander when he had the shot... maybe the holdout tied his hands... but there is his salary

The Marner situation:

 

I think a smart approach might be to do as follows:

 

1) Let another team make a huge RFA offer sheet to Marner.

 

2) Toronto *begrudgingly* matches the offer.

 

3) Being the “good samaritan” that Benning is, he makes an offer to Toronto for Marner that makes sense for both sides.  

 

Benning already has a good relationship with Dubas and so there’s no point ruining that with a predatory offer sheet.    Predatory offer sheets can significantly damage one’s rep around the league as well (ie old boys club mentality amongst GM’s).  

 

Let some other team do ‘1’ and ‘2’.  If no one does, then we can skip straight to step #3 in the above.

If they get into cap trouble it won’t be a signed Marner that they move.
