With Dubas signing Giordano to a 2yr x 850, he will now probably look to signing Campbell to a 5yr $25 million dollar contract.

First year =$3.5
Second year = $5.5
Third &fourth year = $6.0
Fifth year = $4.0

Just my thoughts on how he will sign him.

5x5 is exactly what I have thought Soup will get. The 25 million mark has been in the back of my mind for awhile now in general. He hasn't made the kind of money other have and he's 30, 25 million as a last payday before he's a 35yo back up, seems like it's perfectly fine to him.

5x5 for Campbell is typical of Dubas No consideration for the last couple years of a contract. 5M for a guy who has played more than 30 games twice and this at ae 30. Not to mention the games missed to injuries piling up and his long periods last season of inconsistent play. He may have a 5M goalie heck a 6M goalie if you looked at his record before X-mas but the real Soup is what we saw after Xmas. That Campbell still a very competent 1A or 1B goalie but not at 5 years at 5M. he wants 5 years 3.5-4M MAX he wants 5M per then 3 years max but with the understanding it will be as a 1A or 1B. Nothing says in what he's shown that he can be the number 1 without missing a lot of time with injury and or bad play.

I believe there's currently just under 8 million in space. Sandin, Lili, Engvall, Bush, Mikheyev all need to be replaced or signed. What trade do you have in mind that brings someone in for 3.5-4 that's also a starter?

For a guy who is 30 years old and has one year experience as a starter I would be reluctant to pay Campbell $5 million let alone give him 5 years of term taking him to 35 years old?

Which Campbell would Leafs be getting for the next five years.
The pre Christmas Campbell or the post Christmas Campbell?

Campbell did have a SV% of .914 for the year but only a SV% .897% in the playoffs!

Leafs already have:
Matthews at $11.6
Tavares at $11
Marner at $10.89
Reilly at $7.5
Willie at $6.9
Campbell at $5 x 5 years?

I have a hard time getting my head around that.
That said, I’m sure Buffalo or perhaps Detroit or Arizona might be willing to pony up even a little more that $5
Big decisions!

I would like to see Leafs grab Eric Comrie as a Group 6 free agent as their backup for next year no matter what they decide about Campbell.
If they can not match what other teams are offering Campbell (which is quite possible/ likely) I would like to see them try to sign Holtby for a two of year term.

30 is not old for a goalie.
