With the Jay McClement and Matt Frattin contracts something is sticking out for me: the Leafs have too many NHLers. At Center their depth chart (in no particular order) is now something like:
That's six guys and four spots. Is someone on the move? Is a deal in the works? Is this leverage against Nikolai Kulemin asking for a raise? Could Kadri and Frattin start in the AHL and become injury fill ins this season? Is Tim Connolly or Matthew Lombardi about to be ditched?
We'll find out soon enough I suppose. This has been a confusing day.
