The Leafs are almost at the end of the long and winding RFA road, and they couldn’t be doing a better job of it. While there are still some salary cap hurdles ahead of them this year, all seven of the players they’ve locked back in since April have signed for below market value, or at it but very close to the minimum. They’ve even avoided both their arbitration meetings this week with Peter Holland and Frank Corrado, minimizing the odds of any animosity between the player and management.
But there is still one player left, and that’s Martin Marincin. The polarizing defensive defenceman has his hearing on August 2nd (next Tuesday), and we still don’t know much about it. So for this edition of WWYDW, let’s play a guessing game!
- What will the Leafs’ arbitration offer be?
- What will Marincin’s ask be?
- What will the final salary end up being?
Please leave your answers below. It’ll be interesting to see who comes the closest!
