09:32 AM ET 08.25 | Nazem Kadri took to Twitter on Saturday to deny a report from Sportsnet's David Alter that his camp was asking for about $30 million over six years from the Toronto Maple Leafs. Alter responded by saying that he was "going by what he was told" and said he would be "happy to set the record straight." In case you were wondering, the 22-year-old didn't share his actual contract demands via social media.

$30 million over six years? Who does this guy think he is? A Russian?

How is it that such a pathetic team gets this much press time? The Stanley Cup winners should be so lucky!

Leafs have die hard fans, while most Hawks "fans" couldn't tell you what colour their team wore at home up until about 2009.

Are you saying the fans are so new they showed up at Soldier Field for the first Hawks game?

They wouldn't be able to tell Cutler from Captain Whinious. ;-)

Best post based in pure honesty!

If I were him I'd try proving a bit more, as even Grabo had to do that before getting signed to 5 years so that he could play no more than 2....lol. I like this kids skills, but don't care for the greed, and at his age and considering it was half a season, I don't think it entitles him to ask for the Brinks trucks to roll in.....just sayin.

This kid is going down the wrong path. He has played one season for all intents and purposes. He has played a half season of good hockey. Nonis should be sniffing around the league to gauge value, because he probably could fetch a couple of high-end prospects as the Leafs continue a rebuild. He has an heir of cockiness and as much as I try to like the kid, he says and acts a certain way that makes it hard. The organization is bigger than the players. Ship him out and send a message to future players (Reilly, Percy, Biggs) that you don't hold the team hostage when you have no bargaining. Earn them first.
