TSN: Darren Dreger on TSN 1050 radio when inquired about Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly and his agreement circumstance. He’s getting in the last year of his contact.
“There may be discussions, in truth, I’m sure there would be in between J.P. Barry the representative and Kyle Dubas at differing points of this season. I like what Morgan carried out in his media schedule where he simply dropped the hammer and stated ‘Guys, I’m not discussing this. I going to leave it to J.P. I’m going to leave it to Kyle and they’re going to handle it.’
I believe that that is healthy for everybody, consisting of the media. We can think what the specifications are. You understand obviously. Morgan Rielly is going to have a choice to make. The Toronto Maple Leafs don’t have an abundance of area, and they’re not going to have an abundance of cap area even next year.
Can they be innovative? Yeah Of course they can however I believe there are a variety of aspects that you need to think about. Who’s establishing and all of that.
Should Morgan Rielly take once again that quote/unquote home town discount rate? Well, I don’t understand that he should. He’s been a genuine excellent Toronto Maple Leaf however I likewise understand that he likes Toronto, and like a great deal of gamers prior to him, he wishes to play out his days with the Toronto Maple Leafs, however he’s likewise made his position from an organization viewpoint. I don’t believe that the dollars are going to be as considerable as perhaps they were this offseason with a few of the men that signed however I can’t ensure that.
So, I’m reluctant to toss out numbers however, I imply, it’s gotta, if we’re hypothesizing today it’s gotta be north of 8, right? So that a person is going to be intriguing to see and unfold, and north of 8 would be a home town discount rate.”
