This is what kind of pisses me off about that Kampf signing at too much money...that extra $750K would be useful in signing a guy like Ritchie.

And then what happened
Didn't age well

In my defense, they're over the cap...but I do like the signing and the cap hit on Ritchie.
Only because CapFriendly has them with 15 Forwards and a 23 man roster. They are cap complaint with a 21 man roster.

Woof. I'm really not sure about that bottom 6. The fact that this team seemingly doesn't have any 22 or 23 year old guys from in-house beating down the door to be on that third line is a real weak spot.

Praying Bozak gets something stupid like $4mil to make me less angry about how much better the 3rd line would look with him on it.

I think the 4th line could provide a lot of energy and a little more consistent goal scoring from the bottom-6 than we're used to though.
Where is Robertson in all this?
On the Marlies pushing for a spot on the big club. Competition for spots is a good thing.

At what point to they have to be compliant...the day before regular season starts?
Pretty much

Engvall's getting waived. Or, if there's a great deal to be had on Mikheyev (pending UFA) I'd consider it.

We are compliant if we run a 21-man roster, but I still expect some movement to give us the largest, cap-flexible/banking roster.

Compliant yeah, but with only 6 defencemen. That'd be an issue.
They ran with 6 for a lot of last year. Always have the emergency call up and Sandin is still waiver exempt.

Leafs: are you 24-26? Have you been let down by your current team somehow and want a chance to build a platform for a big UFA ticket with some of the premiere young superstars in the league today? Sign up with us!
And lots of local boys to boot. Wouldn't get that 5 years ago.

I hope Barb can get his skating a little better.  It's probably a little more money than I would like and I'm wary of the 2nd year given the cap probably doesn't adjust much between now and then but I figure the 2nd year lowered the AAV.

Maybe a trade is still coming down the road here.

If they keep Engvall on the roster and demote Brooks (13F, 6D, 2G roster) they would have 80K in cap space. 
Agree...Word was he was looking for 4 mill. The 2nd year probably dropped the AAV.

I'm not thrilled about the second year but beyond that I like the idea of him on one of the PP units being a bear in front of the net. I'm actually really sort of starting to like this group of forwards.
The 2nd year is probably the only way he comes here.. Like the signing and like what Dubas had done with the forwards. I think a trade is the next move. Leafs essentially signed Kase and Ritchie for what Foligno got. Tidy work

This is an overpay? Relative to the other signings you saw this week?
Is not an overpayment and another low risk contact. Hope he can stay healthy.

I was annoyed because Niemla was on the board and I didn’t think he would still be there.  When they still managed to pick him that was it for me.  I think last years draft is finally going to be a year where we get a big haul of NHL players….hopefully not too late for this iteration of the team
I hope you're right. Funny, I like Dubas because I think he's a quality human being so it would be nice to stick to the haters.

But but Dubas is an idiot...anyway so far it looks like a major win for the Leafs...hope it works out.

Dude can shoot a puck that's for sure.
This kid reminds me of Matthews....I know I know but man I like what I see so far.

I like him to. He shows promise.

Nice little story about Gabriel here. Seems like a solid dude.

Very easy guy to root for. His playing history definitely suggests he shouldn't be anywhere near the main team unfortunately but 1 game with him and Simmonds being the bash bros in front of a sold out Toronto crowd would be fun to watch.
Heard an interview with him today. Sounds like a quality human being.

Hey what about Chara for the Bogo role? How were his numbers in Washington?
I think they were pretty bad and he played sheltered minutes. There are better options but we'd get our own crosschecker!
