from Paul Hunter of the Toronto Star, I
t is almost certain that tonight’s game against New Jersey will be Dominic Moore’s last as a Maple Leaf….
Burke, though, was still unwilling to completely close the door on Moore’s future with the Leafs.
“It’s still too early to say,” the GM said last night.
However, it’s difficult to believe Moore will sign in Toronto, even though both parties would like that to happen. It is believed the two sides remain about $1 million (all figures U.S.) apart per season, a gap that is just too wide to be bridged.
Moore, based on his breakout season with the Leafs, is thought to be looking for roughly triple the $900,000 he earns this season with a desired two-year deal in the $5 million range. While that seems steep, there are those who believe Moore could command more than $3 million a season on the open market this summer.
