Peter Holland has been signed to a two-year, one-way contract worth $775,000 a season, Anthony Petrielli of Maple Leafs Hot Stove has learned.
Holland is going to make 775K/year over his two-year deal. That's great value for a guy who could be a productive 3C over the two years.

Holland would’ve had the option of accepting a one-year, two-way $850,000 qualifying offer as fellow former first round pick Carter Ashton did earlier today, but obviously opted for the guaranteed NHL salary of a one-way deal over two years. It appears to work out nicely for the Leafs.
If the 23-year-old Holland can serve as the third line center during this contract and do so capably, $775,000 a season is really good value, assuming his NHL production begins to grow as his AHL numbers would suggest it can.
The new contract also means Holland is waiver prone, so there will be no bouncing up and down this season or else the Leafs would lose the former first round pick who was acquired for a 2nd round pick and Jessie Blacker last November.
This season should be Holland’s first full-time opportunity in the NHL for a significant stretch of games, and hopefully Randy Carlyle integrates Holland a little better than last season. A lace-bite injury that required a longer recovery than first anticipated didn’t help matters, but he only played about 11 minutes and change on average as Carlyle opted to elevate Jay McClement and really lean on the veteran when injuries struck at center.
Regardless, bygones are bygone and Holland should be looking at a nice opportunity coming this Fall. Leafs management deserves some credit for making the development-geared move of letting a coach’s favorite in McClement — who it should be said did serve the club well in his more natural 4C role — walk and, as Shanahan put it, “giving our young players opportunities. We want to have competition. We want to create that internal pressure, that there are jobs to be had here.”
Decent day. Sign a new contract and dunk a hole-in-one!! No bounce, straight in pic.twitter.com/6htaUvUwEn

Horachek interview from today is up
God @TheTweetOfGod 2m
It's really incredible how many of you are total stupid asses.
https://twitter.com/BarDown/status/489820627894018048 Pretty sad that no good goalies are coming out of Toronto. Mason is the best?? Really?? Although with that line-up you don't even need a goalie! lol
This is a great interview. So blunt/direct. Totally refreshing.
The good old days of free-for-all hockey.
446 goals for and 314 goals against for the Oilers in 83-84.
Question for anyone out there who has knowledge of this:
If one was to purchase lakefront real estate, how much would you expect the installation of a septic field to cost? Aside from plopping a cabin down on the lot and the septic field, what other major costs would you assume?
@Mcost61 Whoever this is, needs a cuff on the back of the head.
@Mcost61 err where's the system? 5-5-5 is basic hockey 101.
@Burntheboats Mike Smith!!
@Burntheboats hate to say it but the nucks have a sick lineup with the hometown boys. damn.
weak defensively and not much grit or truculence. This team would get bullied and intimated until they were too scared to play their game lol
@Burntheboats Tuukka can come home to the team that drafted him ;)
@Loric76 I didnt think Jobs had that many relatives working there.
@dlb Mad Just think Japanese manga drawing.
@dlb Mad Getting sucked in by Ekland? Shame on you.
@DeclanK What puck moving defenders in the minors is he talking about? Ouellette is their only note-able guy.
@Cameron19 Septic field should cost $13,000-17,000.00....some times government assistance is available for lakefront properties due to environmental concerns...
@Cameron19 i moved out to the boonies last year(st.george) and my neighbor was building new and it cost him between 18k and 20k for his septic system, depending on the company.
@Cameron19 Cost me close to15 grand to install a spectic system here in NB .
I don't know about actual construction costs specifically, but you might want to contact the municipality because every berg has different rules about standards and the owners responsibilities.
@Cameron19 First thing to do is check with local groups on what type of permits you might need and other permissions you might need to alter waterfront property. I have a cottage on the water near Grand Bend Ontario on Lake Huron and you can't do anything.
@Cameron19 No power or water lines on lot?
@Burtonboy look at those chicken wing legs!
Amazing how many converts there are to socialism and the dreaded 'nanny state' when it means getting to stick their own hand out.
