Leafs haters in shambles.
Voting no is just outing yourselves
Just gonna edit this in so people can understand why this is a great deal.
4 years ago when we were working on the last AM contract, they were talking about 8 years at 13.8 avv (same % as McDavid). Evidence
Instead we went with the email@example.com that turned into 11.640,250, and now another 4 at 13.25.
That averages out to 9 years at 12.35aav instead of the 8 years at 13.8aav.
THIS IS A HUGE WIN
The AAV is honestly a steal for what Matthews brings to the Leafs, and since I believe that the Leafs are gonna be rebuilding in 4-5 years I don't see the term not being longer than 4 years as an issue what so ever.
Very good signing by the Leafs.
Looks like Matthews was gunning for a shorter team deal all the way. If that's the case and signing him for longer wasn't feasible, the Leafs did well to get their best player under contract and not risk going into the season with Matthews as a pending UFA.
