Jeff Marek: “Elliotte Friedman break news of Timo Meier of the San Jose Sharks.”
Elliotte Friedman: “Well I believe there are a couple of groups that have actually shown that they believe if there is a person that could go early it is Meier.
You recognize I believe the factor is that San Jose they are hostile. They are attempting to do points as well as would certainly attempt to Jump the line (I do not recognize if that is the ideal word). If you come to them they prepare to operate now.
I believe the various other point with Meier is his in a little bit of an one-of-a-kind scenario. He is not an unlimited freelance this year, yet his agreement is up. His birthday celebration remains in October, yet you have to be 27 years of ages or have actually played 7 years in the NHL by July first of that year to receive UFA standing. If a gamer transforms 27 after July first of that year you have to wait an additional year. That is where Meier is.
His agreement is up yet he has one even more year up until he can be a UFA. However, his existing agreement ways to maintain his legal rights you have to supply him a minimum of a 1 year bargain of $10 million.”
Marek: It is the Matthew Tkachuk Situation.
Friedman: “I believe they are some groups available that actually likeTimo Meier He is a heck of a gamer having a heck of a year. Meier is playing very well, yet they do not like his agreement. Rather they would certainly such as to recognize what he is searching for on an expansion prior to they make the profession.
The trick right here is San Jose has actually revealed a desire that if you make them a profession or profession proposition they like they will certainly allow you speak to Meier’s associate, that is Claude Lemieux.
So that is the scenario, not every group fits with.”

Carolina makes good sense if they agree to do the expansions. The Hurricanes do not such as services as they place a worth on you as well as they will certainly not cross it.
Friedman after that states just how Meier would certainly be a best suitable forToronto However, the Maple Leafs do not have a load of cap room. “I believe he is exactly what the Maple Leafs need. They only have so many assets to give up and they do not want to let go of their first-round pick. Not to mention Matthew Knies neither.”
