The latest Nathan Mackinnen statement where he said he would take another discount on his next contract if it meant helping the team win must really sting in Toronto. 

More than likely what he means is a contract that is similar to his current deal or Crosbys' current deal - a high value contract with term to bring the annual cap hit to a manageable value.  

 

Crosby: 12 for 104 million with a cap hit of 8.3 million.

MacKinnon: 7 for 44.1 million with a cap hit of 6.3 million.

 

It really depends on the player: some players care more about there legacy than $ - of course MVP type players will potentially have more sources of income and perhaps be or should be more willing to take a pay cut (in my opinion).  For example, players like Jordan and Crosby (just to name a few) are willing to take a pay cut below there market value to win championships to be remembered as champions and with that reputation, the endorsement deals will MORE THAN likely make up for not getting paid there market value. 

 

I do agree, that it must sting for Toronto that all there young core chose to get there market value or more - Nylander - rather than give some discount through term to help supplement there talented roster and win a cup.  But as fan of the Canucks, I think Dubas did pretty well (4 players making ~ 40 million of there total cap) because I taught they were for sure, going to break there 51 year cup drought but now it is looking more likely that they will have to wait longer and hopefully we get ours before they do.   Go Canucks !!!!!

Would it really cost that much?

6.5 million worth of hole fillers.

need :

a backup goalie

a rugged defensive winger

a defensive defenceman

 

as long as the cap hit is the same that would be the cost of Nylander.

 

If he were to become a Canuck, in my opinion, his value will only be in the regular season and not in the playoffs - based on his past performance.
