Cap Space Shuffle
Today’s post-loss practice had all of that and Michael Hutchinson too.
Things look much better, but looks can be deceiving.
We’ll know by the end of today.
The weirdest part of this offseason is the missing final deadline.
The rich teams win by giving big signing bonuses concept is about to meet a whole new contract reality.
The Leafs aren’t up against the cap anymore. It’s a least a foot away now.
Last year, the inefficient cap hits were obvious, but the simple days of cleaning up past mistakes are gone.
Trading? In this economy?
A tough decision might need to be made to activate Ilya Mikheyev.
Paper deals, practice appearances, none of it is serious roster moves.
With Frederik Andersen’s return, Hutchinson is on waivers today.
Today’s practice has some missing players, and some new arrivals.
Jake Muzzin is going to a place he hasn’t been in a while.
The news is in who isn’t on the list.
I’m going to keep explaining how this works until everyone stops acting like it’s a cap circumvention loophole.
Is there a clever LTIR scheme to replace Morgan Rielly that will let the Leafs have their cake and eat it too?
I don’t think they’re allowed to play two at once to replace Jake Muzzin, though.
There was an implausible emergency, then there wasn’t, now they’re back.
