07:31 AM ET 07.29 | It didn't take the Leafs long to extend the contract of Dave Nonis, which had raised a few eyebrows. The noise over the length of [Nonis' new deal was just that, noise. Every general manager in hockey today should start with a five-year deal. It takes that long to see the fruits of your first or second drafts develop. In these salaried cap times, that's the best way to do business. ... Is Nonis the best general manager in Canada? No. But in a field that includes Jay Feaster, Mike Gillis, Craig MacTavish, Kevin Chevaldayoff and Marc Bergevin, I'll happily take Nonis ... The Cody Franson trade rumours don't make a lot of sense to me. Unless the Leafs are starting them, hoping to reduce the price of the restricted free agent. Franson made a lot of progress in his first full year under Randy Carlyle.

I find it hard to believe that a team would try to manipulate the market like that

Hey, I will take Nonis any day over that goofball in WPG that gave Blake Wheeler $5.6 per for 6 years.

"..... I'll happily take Nonis ... "

And ... I'll happily take Cody Franson over Nonis.

I'm sure 5 more years in To***to will take care of that Roamer.
