Leafs’ James Van Riemsdyk Seeking $36M Extension

Published

on

If the Toronto Maple Leafs intend on keeping James van Riemsdyk in the fold beyond this season, they need to start doling out the cash.

As Jerry McGuire would say; “Show me the money.”

TSN’s Darren Dreger reports that it is likely that Toronto would likely have to pony up $6M per season over the length of a 6-year duration:

The money is right. I think that van Riemsdyk would take $6MM. $6MM frankly on the open market could be considered a hometown discount based on the goals he provides to the Toronto Maple Leafs. In a perfect world, I think JVR would prefer a 6×6 scenario to stay in Toronto.

Riemsdyk is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and is having another productive season.

Toronto will have to be calculated as they will also have to work on deals for Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Mitch Marner in addition to Riemsdyk.
