Team Explanation
Everyone keeps hunting for that big trade that Toronto "has" to make to get a top 4 RHD. If you look at things from this prospective Toronto has time to be patient and wait to make a move. They have lots in the pipe line and look poised to fix their defense issues internally. I say wait, be patient. This is a close to the ceiling team, sure, but we are guessing about what certain contracts are going to come. For all we know Mathews, Marner and Nylander could take team friendly contracts. Why can't Mathews take 8 years at 9-10. Marner 8 years at 6.5-7.5 and Nylander 6-8 years at 6-7. It is possible. If Toronto can just wait until Marleau comes off the books, this is no longer a cap strapped team.

Nylander will sign for 6.5+, Marner likely around 8 but that can change depending on the season he has. If I'm the Leafs I would get him signed now before he puts up an 85 pt season and drives that number closer to 10. Matthews is a lock for 11 in my opinion him comp is between Eichel and McDavid.

Hard to say with Kap and Johnsson. If Johnsson plays up in the lineup at all and puts up a 20/40 season he could push his number up a bit. Kap is pretty close I think.

Lastly I would move the D around a bit and have Ozhiganov depending on whether his game translates to the NHL play with Dermott, and have Hainsey play bottom pair with Liljegren to give him that veteran presence and allow him to play a style that is comfortable to him with a bit of a safety net. Although I would still rather see a better top pair guy to play with Rielly. Zaitsev even when he re finds his form of 2 years ago isn't the right type of guy for Rielly.

I agree 100%, the point I am more so making is we can wait to make that big move. I say when Marleau comes off the books, then you go for the big fish. But moving out our depth up front at this point is not smart. Dubas has a plan, and leafs fans need to let these Tanev, Parayko and Faulk deals go. Toronto should wait and develop. Its cheaper and potentially better in the long run.

you have 342K of cap space, no extra roster players in case of injury, and all the big guns will get way more than you're giving them.


It doesn't look as good as you think.

Thats bringing back Hainsey and Lindholm which we do not have too. There is 2.5 mill. That is also doing it without moving out a contract, which is still an option. Point is, there isn't this huge rush, and we do not have to go find this big name defender. There are several people that can step in for injury purposes so I really do not understand that comment. We have goalies, defenders and forwards that could come up easily. I also didn't resign any two way contracts which there are several. We also do not have to sign Borgman. Everyone thinks the leafs have no one left in their pipeline. We could let every expiring contract walk for two straight years and still have players to step up. We have time.

Another thing to take into account is that there is a good chance the cap goes upto the 83 mil range which with this lineup gives an additional chunk which would cover contingencies. Although it would also only cover the true salaries of Marner Matthews and Nylander. It's close but it does show just how cap staples we are in the future.
