Nazem Kadri said that “it’s not his job” to worry about the Toronto Maple Leafs’ salary cap situation on Tuesday. Saturday provides more evidence of that thought because if Sportsnet’s David Alter’s report is correct Kadri wants more than the Buds currently have.
Kadri’s camp reportedly began with a six-year $36 million proposal but knocked that price down $1 million per season to $30 million. Alter reports that the Maple Leafs trotted out a very different number: two years $6 million.
It wouldn’t be surprising if the two sides make some headway between today and training camp (if not the regular season) but this report indicates that they disagree both on term and salary.
