Not very well. 

He's a serviceable 4th liner when needed, but not a guy you want in there every night.

Murray for Hellebyuck and a 2nd?

Murray and Samsonov 😉 + Robertson + 2nd Round Pick  for Hellebuyck.

As things stand PP options include:

Tavares
Nylander
Matthews
Marner
Rielly
     Bertuzzi
Domi
Knies
Jarnkrok/McMann
Klingberg

Obviously can mix and match things there as well, maybe most obviously trying Klingberg on the top unit instead of Rielly.

PK options right now only have 4 confirmed players:

Kampf-Marner, Jarnkrok-Lafferty

Whoever ends up winning the spot for the 12th forward will probably get some PK minutes too, so that's Holmberg or McMann or maybe a little less likely Gambrell. Room for one more spot-duty penalty killer. None of Reaves, Bertuzzi, or Domi have history there and likely wouldn't be good fits. Knies seems unlikely right off the bat although IIRC he did play in all situations in the NCAA. Keefe tends to always sorta flirt with the idea of playing Nylander on the PK so he might get more consistent 6th man minutes.

So C depth to start the season looking like: Matthews-Tavares-Kampf-Lafferty/Holmberg/Gambrell

Significantly Insignificant

Jarnkrok can play C as well.

To work their way out of the cap crunch, I think the Leafs have to move Brodie, buyout or trade Murray, and then sign some cheap d-man like Cal Foote.

Definitely moves on defence are forthcoming.  I don't think the Leafs can go into season with the D looking like this.

That's not that big a gap to overcome.

It's not crazy big, but if Nylander doesn't come off $10 he has to be traded. I don't think that's a contract that ages well. He's a great point producer but his overall game is not worth more than Matthew Tkachuk.
