We told you yesterday, as well as the vast majority of experts, the hockey world was really surprised to learn the details of the new contract signed by Mark Giordano with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Leafs have agreed to a two-season contract with veteran Toronto defenseman Mark Giordano.
The deal will pay him $800,000 per year.
Yes yes, only $800,000 per year, when according to contract experts (like Evolving Wild), Giordano could have possibly signed for close to 3 million per season.
He could have relied on a Ryan Suter as a comparable. (Suter signed for 3.65 million per season)
In 20 games this season with the Leafs, Giordano has 12 points, including two points in seven playoff games. He began his season with the Seattle Kraken after being selected in the expansion draft.
THERE'S NEWS
Today, some very interesting new information surfaces. On his 32 Thoughts podcast, Sportsnet tipster Elliotte Friedman just said this:
"The Maple Leafs offered Mark Giordano $1 million a year (for two years), and he declined. Giordano asked the Leafs to lower their offer, to offer him less money."

We know the rest, he finally signed for $800,000 a year (for two years). Unbelievable!
Obviously, the veteran wants to be part of the solution in Toronto and he wants to help his DG to have as much money as possible, to improve the team as much as possible.
Wow, some people should take notes.
