Plan For Next Year

This past season was a bust, but the Leafs did find

out some good things from this. The first is that a

teammust go with speed not power. The second is money can’t buy a team, they must develop their

own players. The last thing is that they have many outstanding rookies in the AHL, here is the plan:

Off-Season: The Leafs will have about 22 million

dollars in cap-space, this is what they do:

Sign Pavel Kubina: 3-year/3.5 million per year

Sign Manny Legace: 2-year/4 million per year

Sign Patrick Elias: 4-year/5 million per year

Sign Matt Lombardi: 3-year/750,000 per year

The Leafs need to buy-out these players:

Tie Domi

Nik Antropov

Ed Belfour

Wade Belak

This will leave the Leafs with 13.5 million dollars to

re-sign who they need to:

Lindros: 1-year/750,000 per-year

Wellwood: 2-year/1 million per-year

Stajan: 3-year/1.2 million per-year

Suglobov: 2-year/700,000 per-year

Kronvall: 3-year/900,000 per-year

White: 2-year/750,000 per-year

Bell: 2-year/750,000 per-year

After this they will have about 7.9 million dollars in

cap space incase they might need to make a trade

to fix something, here is next-year’s team:












(split duty)

This team should thrive in the new NHL because of

their balance of speed and and power. They may challenge for the cup!
