Maple Leafs Re-sign Schenn.

TSN.CA reports the Toronto Maple Leafs re-signed defenseman Luke Schenn on Thursday night to a five-year contract, believed worth $3.5 million per season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The dollar amount is a little higher than anticipated (I thought he’d be signed for between $2.5-$3 million per) but otherwise it’s unsurprising the Leafs and Schenn agreed to a deal before the start of training camp.

  1. 3.5 million for what? a lot of hits and a high draft position… ahhh, I see. Its the “Komisarek” principle. Wow, talk about a over payment. So, now the Leafs payroll is higher than the Montreal Canadiens (with Scott Gomez), but I have to say, theres definitely more talent on the Canadiens roster.

  2. Well I was dead wrong in both term and money. I would of preferred they stayed in line with other contracts and ended this one while he was still a rfa but the lighter side of this is that for 3.5 in 5 years for schenn who would be a ufa then will make up for it.

    If you’re a stats guy which I’m sure Smielan isn’t his last comment has no base because if by saying, “definitely more talent on the Canadiens roster” not that anyone cares to compare or mention that – but we know habs fans – by more talent I guess you mean better as in producing points, then Grabovski who you dumped for a 2nd rounder (how’s that working out) would of been your top points/goal producer and possibly your top line center but on Toronto he isn’t the #1 center nor top points/goal producer…. so how is one team more talented, because Price is a great goalie and carried the team? Stop trying to hate on the Leafs and lets talk sensible hockey talk and leave light-hearted trash talking to game days.

  3. Grabovski has talent, hence why we had him. We ditched him because he was a cancer in the room. It was addition by subtraction, wished him well and hoped the door didn’t hit him in the ass on the way out. Basically, that deal worked out perfectly for the Habs, regardless of what he does as a Leaf.
    As a point of information, the Habs are not the 1993 teams which had, basically, only Roy. The current version is way deeper than that team. Price just gets all the headlines because in this town, we really like our goalies.
