Letang's third deal is more comparable to this Werenskicontract than anything Dubas has done lmao.
It's honestly remarkable how incensed you are about Kyle Dubas. Like, you'd make a great Toronto Sun columnist. Maybe you need to sit down and take a breather.
Dubas signing Marner to 2% more of the cap hit compared to guys like Backstrom and Draisaitl didn't break the league. Backstrom got his contract after his record breaking team was knocked out of the playoffs by the Canadiens in the first round. Oilers hadn't done anything when Draisaitl signed his. Toews and Kane signed their deals prior to their cup. Toronto obviously signed Matthews and Marner with the expectation that they'd do well in both the regular season and the playoffs. Marner lead the team in points prior to signing; they carries a lot of weight in negotiations.
It wouldn't matter all that much either if the pandemic didn't occur. I don't think Marner should be making over 10 million but as I've said, I'm not the GM of the Maple Leafs. I also don't think it broke the league like you did. These guys were probably going to get more in a non-pandemic situation.
I reckon your next post will be a string of insults so I'm done. Goodnight. You can have the last word or whatever makes your feel better. I'm not going to change your mind and you're obviously getting a high off of thinking you're winning an internet argument on capfriendly. Don't want to waste any more time.
RFA signings are not comparable to UFA signings. Period. Not even close. Zack can't go negotiate with any team. Which is where there was always a line drawn. So no, they are not the same not even close.
Let me also comment on your "next post will be a string of insults" Lets look back at your 1st reply shall we ?
". I understand that you're upset someone like Dubas got a job in the NHL because you're intimidated by people who are younger than you and wear glasses, but he didn't invent playing RFAs high salaries."
yeah, look at you go there girl.
Man your mouth was running a mile a minute there. But you know, it's always someone else with your passive aggressive self.
We get to the part where you realize you're not so smart there short guy with glasses.
Where you back paddle on everything you tried to say, because even YOU can't justify Marner getting 13%of the cap.
And even YOU recognize that comparing marner to guys who were playing for cups isn't even close!
You are all of what we expect from short guys with glasses. Think you know a lot but you know nothing.
So hey, goodnight short with glasses, with your passive aggressive style.
maybe next time pick on someone else who's short with glasses, you won't get embarrassed back peddling your way out.
