    THey have RFAs Carrick, Soshnikov and Nylander.
    Following season they have Mathews, Marner, Kapanen, 3 additional forwards, 3 additional defenseman and a backup goaltender.

    A few of those guys arent getting low-ball bridge deals. They are going to be in a pickle next July.

    And theyll still go after Tavares.

    Nobody said they have to resign everybody. Fact is they have 25 million in cap space this offseason. They easily let a couple walk...no problem.

    Yes, but when you do this you have one guy taking up a huge chunk of cap leaving a smaller amount left to fill up how many spots? You have to take all of that into consideration. Plus there's also the reality that this team is rebuilding, which I don't think he would want a part of IMO

    The Leafs are past rebuilding.

    Cizikas isnt a good but its hardly crippling the organization if they give him what you suggest.

    Ladds deal is a killer. Eberle is not producing to that contract, and they have about a mill too much tied up in their goalie situation as it is.

    Im not sure whats so hard about dumping a contract or two. If teams are willing to take on David Clarkson and Nathan Horton contracts, I dont see how nobody would take Leddy, Cizikis, or Clutterbuck.

    Guys like Lee, they absolutely need to resign. Not sure about Eberle. They constantly have a rookie rotating into the lineup every season. So that can help them make decisions a little easier on some of these guys.
    I think you're really underestimating how difficult it is to dump a bad contract. To do that, you're also going to have to give up a pick/prospect. The Horton-for-Clarkson trade was a once in a generation cap circumvention move that we're not likely to see again.

    But besides all that, the point is that this team is terrible right now, and with all the cap committed already, they can't do a whole lot to address their biggest problems. Signing JT long-term does nothing to remedy that, but trading him could go a long way. If your plan is to just dump some of the bad contracts and buy UFAs to fix all the roster problems, then they're going to have the same issues moving forward.

    I was blasted for saying that signing Miller to a long term deal early on would be a mistak. The attitude here by some, was that any contract is moveable, especially if they are under 30.

    Im not seeing how a Ciziikis or Clutterbuck would be some immovable contract. Ladd? Yes. Thats a bad one. I think Leddy or Boychuk are EASILY moved if they wanted or had to, and they don't.

    Im hoping the Isles dont bring back JT, I really think the Rsngers have a shot at him and could right this ship while not going gull blast in FA to fill the roster. You dump McD for one of the Toronto kids. You dump Zuc for cost controlled D man. Same with Miller and the roster has potential to look like this

    Kreider- JT- Nylander
    Firesale/ FA- Chytil- Zib
    Kid- Andersson- Fast
    Nieves and whooooooo cares

    Skjei- Shattenkirk
    Firesale- Kid/Smith
    Staal- Firesale/ Kid

    Who said dump a bad contract? Look at the players the Penguins and Hawks have unloaded since their first cups.

    The Penguins traded James Neal, ManBearPig, Jordan Staal, Goligoski, Whitney, Armstrong.

    Not that we need to be so active, but the point stands.
    ^ From some McDonagh thread, maybe McD & Zucc as trade bait
