Easiest solution is to just waive Timmins and run a 20-man roster, or waive Timmins and Lafferty to run a 21-man roster. Not ideal and I wouldn't want to lose either player for free (especially Timmins), but I also don't necessarily think either is a guaranteed claim considering the cap situations around the league.Only trade candidate I see to clear up cap space would be Jarnkrok.
Quote from: cabber24 on September 06, 2023, 12:53:03 PMI believe they're still over the cap with Timmins and Lafferty waived.

So room for either a 13F, 7D, or keeping Jones up.

I started to wonder though if a solution to that could be trying to acquire a player with enough retention to fit under the cap. It could simply be a player at league minimum with 15% retention, or someone with a cap hit as high as $1.3mil with 50% retention. Some sort of sweetener would obviously be required on the Leafs end to make that worth another teams while though.I thought I found an almost perfect target for this. Kevin Rooney in Calgary, a defensive 4C type player who Treliving signed to a 2-year, $1.3mil AAV deal last summer. Things didn't go great for Rooney in his first year with the Flames. Had just 1 assist in 17 games before being demoted to the AHL. Was likely destined for the AHL again this year so I thought maybe Calgary could be open to moving him and saving some cash. At 50% retained the Leafs could have a 21-man roster that includes Timmins that's roughly $19k under the cap.Unfortunately Rooney got hurt in the final week of Calgary's training camp. There wasn't much of a status update for him other than that it's not "short-term". If he's back around when Timmins returns though it still feels like something worth exploring.

Jarnkrok is one of the very few top-9 forwards who can be trusted defensively and Domi is quite literally the only player in the organization capable of centering the 3rd line (assuming Keefe will never commit to trying Nylander there, which is likely won't).
