So while Winnipeg, Boston, and Vancouver revel in the moment and Atlanta sulks, there are still 27 other teams with work to do between now and next season. Like deciding what to do with free agents for one.
All three have notched career highs in games played and points scored in 2010 – 2011, and all three are pending Unrestricted Free Agents in July. Between the ages of 26 and 28 all three have had breakthrough years. Yet they aren’t looking to cash in on the open market. They’re fighting just to make the Leafs 2011 – 2012 roster.
They’ve had to earn every NHL pay cheque they’ve cashed, but who among Darryl Boyce, Tim Brent and Joey Crabb will be back next season in blue and white?
