Realistic Leafs Moves

If the Leafs make it to the playoffs or don’t here

are some realistic moves the Leafs could do:


Players Signed In Off-Season,

The Leafs will have about 22 million dollars in salary cap room, here is who they can sign in the

off-season:

Sergei Samsonov:3-year/2.5 million per year

Tyler Arnason:2-year/1.2 million per year

Mark Bell:2-year/1 million per year

Pavel Kubina: 3-year/2.5 million per year

Willie Mitchell:2-year/1.5 million per year

After these aquisitions this will leave the Leafs with

13 million dollars in cap room, here is who they

should re-sign:

Luke Richardson:2-year/2 million per year

Eric Lindros:1-year/1.5 million dollars

Chad Kilger:3-year/700,000 per year

Karl Pilar:1-year/600,000 per year

Mikael Tellqvist:3-year/1.5 million per year

John Pohl:2-year/500,000 per year

Matt Stajan:2-year/900,000 per year

Kyle Wellwood:3-year/900,000 per year

Carlo Coliacovo:2-year/850,000 per year

Jay Harrison:4-year/900,000 per year

Curtis Joseph:1-year/1 million per year

After they re-sign all of these player it will leave

them with about 2,150,000 dollars to re-sign their

remaining prospects.

    Why release Domi and O’neill???? Domi? He’s part of the energy line! O’neill, needs time on the first line, instead of with Domi and Stajan.

    Problem is an excess of good quality forwards, next year, if ew re-sign every forward who deserves a spot, that’s Sundin, O’neill, Lindros, Tucker, Kilger, Ponikarovsky, Steen, Stajan, Wellwood, Wilm, Ondrus, and Domi, 12 forwards, I’d trade Wellwood for a defenseman, and add a fast guy like Selanne.

    Selanne-Sundin-O’neill

    Tucker-Lindros-Ponikarovsky

    Kilger-Stajan-Steen

    Ondrus-Wilm-Domi

    Suglobov

    Kaberle-Redden

    Lidstrom-Colaiacovo

    Richardson-Klee

    Khavanov

    Joseph

    Tellqvist

    If we could build that team, that’d be great. I like Klee, he’s a good solid defenseman, re-signing him would be a good move, and would make Lou Lamirello look really dumb.

    Sergei Samsonov:3-year/2.5 million per year

    -Will ask for, and get, 3 million+ per year on a 2 year deal. Why would we want another injury-prone underachiever?

    Tyler Arnason:2-year/1.2 million per year

    This is a possibility since Ottawa has some tough choices to make with salaries… I think maybe 1.5-2 million is more likley the price though.

    Mark Bell:2-year/1 million per year

    Will cost more than that… will be re-signed and not available anyway.

    Pavel Kubina: 3-year/2.5 million per year

    Huh? Have you looked at the D-men contract? Kubina will get at least 3.5 over a 4 or 5 year deal… maybe even 4 million+

    Willie Mitchell:2-year/1.5 million per year

    See above. He will cost a lot more than 1.5

    After these aquisitions this will leave the Leafs with 13 million dollars in cap room, here is who they should re-sign:

    It won’t leave them with that much, not for *those* players. First, I expect a couple of them to be unavailable and second the remaining ones will be more expensive than what you have listed.

    Luke Richardson:2-year/2 million per year

    WTF? Why on earth do you re-sign him.

    Eric Lindros:1-year/1.5 million dollars

    I can see this happening.

    Chad Kilger:3-year/700,000 per year

    I think more like 2 years at 800K or so.

    Karl Pilar:1-year/600,000 per year

    Before we go signing this guy, he would have to be healthy and make the team. If that is the case he signs for one year for the minimum.

    Mikael Tellqvist:3-year/1.5 million per year

    If Tellqvist is starting, you likely have to pay 2 million+ per year, although this idea is reasonable.

    John Pohl:2-year/500,000 per year

    OK

    Matt Stajan:2-year/900,000 per year

    No. He may be due for a decrease to 700K or so.

    Kyle Wellwood:3-year/900,000 per year

    Why? He has not proven himself at all yet. He has potential, but I am guessing more like 2 years at 750K per.

    Carlo Coliacovo:2-year/850,000 per year

    Injury issue here. That may be in the ballpark though.

    Jay Harrison:4-year/900,000 per year

    Definitely need to see more before we tie in for 4 years. I expect 2 years at around 600K per.

    Curtis Joseph:1-year/1 million per year

    Joseph will get offers for more than that elsewhere… Pittsburgh, Edmonton, Tampa …

    CuJo said there’s a strong chance he’d only want to play in Toronto or Phoenix.

  4. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    I can see Lindros re-signing at 0.45

    I think Wellwood needs to go.

    He’ll never flourish here. Note Steve Sullivan sucked until he got out of this conference, little guys need to play in the west.

    Then I’d have Ondrus-Wilm-Domi and Ponikarovsky-Stajan-Steen are kinda stuck as the 3rd and 4th line, then Lindros, Tucker, O’neill, Sundin, and a new guy or two make the top six. I’m not sure where Kilger fits in.

    Impossible

  6. lukeleim says:

    this roster looks almost exactly the same as the one i posted… good job, i like this team.

  7. lukeleim says:

    ps. i wouldnt sign richardson back though

  8. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Why not?

  9. lukeleim says:

    id rather fill that spot with harrison or someone coming up… not richardson,

    who i admit is playing well with the leafs, who is 37
