Room for one more

With the latest signings in Toront, there appears to be onespot left on the 23 man roster.

The Leafs salary situaion looks like this:

Defense

Bryan McCabe……..5,850,000.00

Pavel Kubina……….5,000,000.00

Tomas Kaberle…….4,250,000.00

Hal Gill……………….2,100,000.00

Carlo Coliacovo……… 901,740.00

Ian White………………488,000.00

Staffan Kronwall……..612,000.00

Jay Harrison………………450,000.00 won’t count against cap

Andy Wozniewski………………450,000.00 won’t count against cap

Forward

Mats Sundin…………6,300,000.00

Darcy Tucker……….1,596,000.00

Jeff O’Neill…………..1,500,000.00

Chad Kilger……………900,000.00

Alexander Steen……..770,180.00

Alex Ponikarovsky…..725,000.00

Wade Belak……………675,000.00

John Pohl………………450,000.00

Ben Ondrus………………….475, 000.00

Andrew Raycroft……….2,000,000.00

Mikael Tellqvist………..589,000.00

Jean-Sebastien Aubin…525,000.00 won’t count against cap

Buyouts

Tie Domi………………….833,000.00

Ed Belfour………………..1,540,000.00

Total……………………$ 38,960,920.00

Leaving $ 5,039,080.00 to get:

3 forwards

RFA’s (with qualifying offers)

Matt Stajan……………880,000.00

Kyle Wellwood……….680,000.00

Stajan is expected to accept his qualifying offer, an wellwood is expected to negotiate a higher salary and a one way deal. This means that Stajn and Wellwood will likely both go for $880,000. You may notice that I put the 23 players with the highest salaries on the roster and not the ones that I would choose.

This leaves $ 3,279,080 in cap room. The leafs will likely not use all of their leftover cap room, but it is likely that some of it will be used to sign on more UFA forward, making the leafs roster look like this:

Tucker – Sundin – O’neill

Poni – (UFA) – Antropov

Steen – Wellwood – Stajan

Kilger – Pohl – Battaglia

Healthy scratches: Belak, Ondrus

Kaberle – McCabe

Kubina – Colaiacovo

Gill – White

Healthy scratch: Kronwall

Raycroft

Tellqvist

Possible UFA’s include

Peca – 2.5 million

Allison – 3 million

Carter – 3 million
