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.

The New York Islanders have placed Andrew Ladd on waivers, according to an official team announcement.

“He’s played the maximum number of conditioning games–five games” Islanders’ general manager Lou Lamoriello said.”He needs to play in games to see exactly where the strength is and where the liabilities are and so forth. So we’ll get him down, he’ll leave today to go up to Belleville and play this weekend at Belleville and Laval.

There’s no timetable. His play and physical fitness will determine that.”

Ladd, who inked a seven-year, $38.5 million contract back in 2016, has not played in a game for the Islanders this season.
