Johnsson - Matthews - Marner
Hyman - Tavares - Nylander
Engvall - Kerfoot - Simmonds
Robertson - Spezza - <<?>>
<<?>>

Rielly - Brodie
Muzzin - Holl
Sandin - Lehtonen
<<?>>

Andersen
Campbell

That lineup is 294,800 under the cap.  Dermott and Mikheyev are still unsigned.  You could probably trade Johnsson (3.4M) and have 3.7M to get those two signed and then depending on left-overs have enough to sign about a million dollar player but the Leafs would be dressing a lineup with no healthy scratches that way.  You could also trade Dermott at this point because he's going to get exposed in the expansion draft next year.


I think technically the Leafs are over the cap with that roster because the qualifying offers to Dermott and Mikheyev have to be accounted for.

I think it was the other way around.  Kadri declined to waive to go to Calgary

Someone brought up an old Mirtle tweet that said Leafs were on Brodie's no trade list. So that is kind of weird

I'd have preferred Weegar but I'm guessing the asset cost there would have been high.  Not a bad alternative. Can live with the term/number.
Nobody said Dubas was done. Acquiring Weegar would have to be via a trade so it's still possible. We'll see but I don't think Dubas is done yet.

I don't know much about Brodie, but sounds like he's basically what we need. I think the idea of requiring all LD/RD is a bit dumb considering it isn't 50/50 split handedness in the league. I wonder if Kerfoot gets dealt and we pick up someone like Jankowski or someone else going heavier on defense that's cheaper in the 3C role.
Jankowski is off the board I believe.

Yes, Jankowski went to the Penguins.

Didn't even see that! Larsson?

There were reports that Brodie added Toronto to his NTC list when the trade fell through.

Some players put teams that have shown interest in accquiring them on thier list, so they have to approve a trade at the time.

I still think the Leafs aren't done. I think they're happy to go over the cap and they know who they're trading and to get under the cap. Take as many good value contracts now as possible and when some teams miss the FA boat use what you have as trade chips. Have to churn the roster and get value out of some guys, even if for less than full return value if you can get another couple players for pennies on the dollar. Gonna be an interesting off season.

NMC in year 1, partial NTC in 2-4.

K I thought this meant we had to have them on our protection list and we weren?t allowed to expose them.
But now are we saying they don?t count?

I think they have to have an NMC for 2021-22, Seattle's first season, to require protection.
