A Max Domi signing in Toronto is imminent

At the time of writing, Max Domi’s signing with the Maple Leafs is said to be imminent. It’s been the talk of the town in Toronto for the past few hours.

Elliotte Friedman, Nick Kypreos, Chris Johnston and David Pagnotta all mentioned, in one way or another, that the two sides were working on a deal early this evening.

Nick Kypreos even mentioned that the Leafs would like to reach an agreement with the former Canadian on a one-year contract worth around $2.5 million against the salary cap.

Max Domi would join the club that drafted his father, a team with which Tie played for over 11 years.

Brad Treliving’s imprint in Toronto would be, among other things, to fill the club with pests. Max Domi, without being so physically imposing, fits perfectly into the mold of the disturbing player that includes Ryan Reaves, signed yesterday, and Tyler Bertuzzi, who reached an agreement with the club today. We’re talking about three players who are hated in the NHL and who aren’t afraid to get their noses dirty.

The club’s new GM clearly wants to tackle the “soft ” reputation the young core has built up in the playoffs.

It’s important to note that, unlike Reaves, who won’t necessarily be in the line-up every night, Max Domi is capable of playing in a top-6 or even a top-9. However, he has been very inconsistent since his 72-point season in Montreal in 2019.

  • 2019-2020 (Montreal): 44 points in 71 games
  • 2020-2021 (Columbus): 24 points in 54 games
  • 2021-2022 (Columbus): 32 points in 53 games
  • 2021-2022 (Carolina): 7 points in 19 games
  • 2022-2023 (Chicago): 49 points in 60 games
  • 2022-2023 (Dallas): 7 points in 20 games
What kind of season could Domi have in Toronto? What kind of role would he play?

If it materializes, it’ll be interesting to follow!
