OFFICIALLY DONE DEAL: Just In Toronto Maple Leafs Just Confirm Agree A Deal Wort $65 Million For Another Top Sensational Star Player From……

Carlo Colaiacovo, an NHL analyst and former player, predicts that defenseman Chris Tanev, a pending free agent, will sign a free agent contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Tanev, one of the best defensemen available, completed his four-year, $18 million contract this season and will be eligible to sign a free agent. Speaking on his FirstUp radio show on TSN1050 in Toronto, Colaiacovo states he thinks Tanev will sign with the Maple Leafs in free agency on July 1. It has been reported that Toronto is interested in him.

“I have no doubt that Chris Tanev will play for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

“I really believe that on July 1st, Chris Tanev will be a Toronto Maple Leaf.” I am aware that despite the Maple Leafs’ best efforts to sign him last season, he is a Toronto native. It was all about how much he wanted to be in Toronto. It was obviously impossible because, despite the Leafs’ willingness to exchange a first-round pick for him, Calgary refused to make a trade with them. However, Colaiacovo stated on FirstUp that “I firmly believe Chris Tanev will be the Maple Leafs’ top target come free agency frenzy on defense.”

According to Colaiacovo, Tanev has been connected to the Maple Leafs and would instantly strengthen their defense’s right side.

Tanev is a defensive defenseman who doesn’t hesitate to stop shots; during the regular season of the previous year, he stopped 207 shots between the Dallas Stars and Calgary Flames. During his 19 playoff games with the Stars, he added 73 blocked shots.

Colaiacovo Conjectures What Tanev Might Get From The Maple Leafs
Colaiacovo was asked about the possible terms of a deal after he stated that he thought Tanev would sign with the Maple Leafs on July 1.

The former NHL player says he thinks it all comes down to how long the contract is. The former NHL defenseman believes a five-year contract worth $5 million per season makes sense, but if it’s shorter, he anticipates an increase in pay to about $6 million.

Over a five-year period, the annual amount is likely to range from $4 to $5 million. It will be higher, perhaps between $5 and $6 (million), if it is less. But he’s the right-hand shot defenseman you’ve been waiting for, your top pairing.

“The player who will perform in the manner that Brad Treliving and Craig Berube desire you to perform. Giving him a five-year contract isn’t to my taste, but it gives him unrestricted free agency. You have to overpay for that to happen.

Tanev finished the regular season with 19 points (17 goals, 17 assists) in 75 games.

Tanev is Toronto’s top target, according to insiders
Elliotte Friedman, an NHL insider, also thinks that Tanev will be the Maple Leafs’ top choice when free agency opens on July 1.

According to Sportsnet, Friedman stated on the Jeff Marek Show on June 27 that “knowing Treliving, I think Tanev is the guy he likes the most.” “He knows him, he likes him, and he likes his game.”

Naturally, Treliving signed Tanev to his previous deal when he was the Flames’ general manager, so the two parties are acquainted.

Toronto has slightly more than $18.8 million in cap space going into free agency.
