And so it Begins...


Cliff Fletcher announced that the Leafs highly touted D-man prospect, and the future of the club, Luke Schenn has been signed to a three year entry level contract.

“Luke’s got a bright future in the NHL and we are very excited to have him signed to a contract,” Said Fletch.

Schenn's entry-level contract will see him earn a base salary of $875,000 (all currency U.S.) and he could receive an additional $2.1-million a year if all his bonus clauses are met.

i was looking forward to tanking, being almost last and getting tavares then next year having tavares/hedman and schenn come up and us being a way better team.

To be honest I haven't gotten a good chance to watch Tavares other than his time in the WJC last year. I do't know why I just have a bad feeling about him...

and kid who can break wayne gretzkys record is good in my books
plus he was amazing in WJC, he needs to get bigger and stronger but he will.

Here is an idea. I know the leafs are crowded at the back end. I also know the Tampa Bay Lightning are looking for more defense.

Jussi Jokinen for Ian White

What do you think?

they like jokinen now and they would want more for him then just white. i would have given them white and kronwall

The Leafs plan confuses me...Are they trying to make another ninth place finish or tank out the season......Leave Schenn in juniors!!
