    It’s contracts like this that make me appreciate what Gillis has done here.  

    It’s hard to argue that Grabo wouldn’t have gotten this much in the open market, especially given Hemsky’s and Tuomo Ruutu’s new contracts.  

    But he’s averaging $500K more than Kesler, just $600K less than the Sedins, and as Tom pointed out, nearly the same as Mike Richards, Ryan Getzlaf and John Tavares.

    So JJ you’re giving Gillis credit for getting the core of his team to “take less” for the good of the team? Shouldn’t the players be the ones who get that credit, since they’re the ones who have to decide to accept the terms of the contract or not?

    OHYEAH – The Leafs have some assets in the system, but top-end/high-end stuff seems lacking. They’ll make the playoffs more often than they don’t over the next decade, but it’s hard to see this group advancing to “elite” status.

    No doubt the players should get credit for buying into Gillis’ sales job.  But Gillis – and Gilman – still have to sell them on the system.
