How soon before a certain segment of the fanbase credits the Leafs success on letting Jake Gardiner walk over the summer?

If that happenes, it would be some time after the Leafs actually have success.

I still find that whole situation that we let him go a bit depressing. But Barrie already looks like Gardiner++

Right now.  Look at our record compared to Carolina's.

Cap shenanigans. Something to do with his bonuses too.

Petan is up in response.

This opens up $88,333 of relief pool (does not accumulate), but subsequent transactions will have this 'room' involved.

Just a random question: during the Leafs Blueprint, I noticed all the players getting off of an Air Canada plane. Why wouldn't an organization like MLSE (and the other franchises) have its own plane and pilots?

Edit: I mean for the players; I'm aware there's a corporate jet for MLSE.

Because it's expensive to let a plane sit there doing nothing most of the time.  Plus you have to maintain it, park it somewhere, and the pilots will be on your payroll full time regardless of how often they work.  You have months in the summer where the plane is not in use. 

TLDR; it's more expensive than chartering.

Doesn't really seem worth it to have. The Air Canada planes they use are special ones designed for this kind of usage I believe. It's not like they're flying in those little WestJet ones.

And I assume you'd have to buy a new one every so often. Probably better to leave the logistics of all that to the experts.

ya, makes sense. I work with a few companies that have their own planes, but these are like 9-seaters and the owner usually has his own pilot's license.  :)

Looks like they usually charter the Air Canada planes.

All of the Canadian NHL teams seem to use the same Charter service:

Seems like the 4th line auditions will carry on throughout October.
