You may have heard that Nazem Kadri and Morgan Rielly both signed contract extensions today. Exciting! Kadri, 25, was the Leafs' leading scorer; while Rielly, 22, was the leading scorer on the defence.
And because they're in their early 20s, of course, one expects a Twitter reaction from them. So let's go there.
This is so sweet. Kadri really is a local boy in every sense of the word, so to finally get rewarded with a long-term contract from the team you grew up cheering for, the team that drafted you - I can't even imagine what that's like. That's really, really special.
Rielly's most recent tweet, meanwhile, is...
Big day, here we go @BlueJays !Can't wait for another run. Good luck— morgan rielly (@mriles4) April 3, 2016
... Morgan you're 22 years old why aren't you tweeting. Though I guess he gets to hang out around the Jays more often than he might have otherwise, now.
He did have this Instagram post just a couple of days ago, though:
He probably had some inkling his new contract was soon to be finalized, eh? Yeah I'm probably reading too much into this, but it's still a really sweet message.
As is what he actually said: "I want to be in Toronto. This is the place I want to be in." There's a lot of optimism in the Leafs locker room nowadays, and Kadri and Rielly are definitely a big part of that.
Kadri & Rielly celebrating by going to lunch together; Who will pay?— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) April 13, 2016
Morgan laughs, "We'll flip a coin"
James van Riemsdyk, meanwhile, appears to be very proud of his teammates.
Or maybe he just wants them to buy him stuff. Honestly, it's probably both.
