First off, I’d like to welcome back the Wayne Train!!
I’d also like to explain the title of this (very short) article.
You all know what it means anyway, I assume.
The Wayne Simmonds that start this season with the Toronto Maple Leafs would be a STEAL of a player at 900K per season. The guy that finished the season with them didn’t look nearly as effective. After Simmonds broke his wrist, and subsequently missed 6 weeks of the season, he didn’t have the same edge or effectiveness on the roster.
My hope here is that Simmonds can stay healthy and be the guy he was to start last season with the Leafs. If they get that player for two full seasons this signing will look amazing.
If not….. well, at least they signed a depth forward to a respectable deal.
