The Maple Leafs have made it emphatically clear Nazem Kadri and Morgan Rielly are a part of their present and future core, moving quickly to lock down the pending RFAs for six years.

The contract buys four years of UFA eligibility for the 25-year-old Kadri and two years for 22-year-old Rielly.

More to come when dollars are known.
