      I agree with you , specially considering he is 37 years old...but I guess leadership has a price... no doubt he can be a good addition for that young group.

        That's a great deal. Structured in a way to get rid of him after 2 years quite easily.

        I think toronto wins the division this year

          How does it help them get out of the contract?

            Majority of the money paid in the first two years with the bonuses and whatnot. Allows for that 3rd year to be shipped off to another team where they'll pay very little actual money, especially if the deal is dealt after July 1st once the bonus is paid by Toronto.

            After the signing bonus of $3-million will be paid on July 2, 2019, he can be traded and the team who trades for him will only have to pay $1.25-million in actual salary while reaching the cap floor if need be and he can retire.

              But he has a full no movement clause so he could be hard to move by the 3rd season..

                He'll waive it in that 3rd season once the Leafs pay his bonus. He'll announce his retirement before the draft and be traded after July 1.

                or start being allergic to his equipment.

                  If I was Toronto, I would have put the money into defense rather than Marleau. Not a huge fan of this move, honestly.

                    They got Hainsey though, surely that's enough?? :P
