The @MapleLeafs extended qualifying offers today to the following restricted free agents: Michael Carcone, Andreas Johnsson, Kasperi Kapanen and Mitch Marner.— Leafs PR (@LeafsPR) June 25, 2019
The expected pro forma qualifying offers for Mitch Marner, Andreas Johnsson and Kasperi Kapanen are here. Aside from those, the Leafs have chosen only Michael Carcone, who had a strong showing on the Marlies, to issue with a qualifying offer.
Now about to become free agents are Jordan Subban, Eamon McAdam, Gabriel Gagne and Nicholas Baptiste. Baptiste is a bit of a surprise, but he seems like a confirmed AHL-level player, and may well get snapped up on a good AHL contract.
Other notable players not qualified today include Brendan Leipsic, Kerby Rychel, Curtis Lazar, Nathan Beaulieu, Pontus Aberg, Tobias Rieder and Ty Rattie.
There is a lot of good AHL talent out there to be found, and maybe some NHL depth.
