With the news today that the Maple Leafs have re-signed Timothy Liljegren, it’s a good moment to revisit the offseason cap calculation to see where they sit going into free agency and what next season’s space will look like:
Maple Leafs Offseason Cap Calculation, June 27, 2022
|Name||Cap Hit (or Qualifying Offer)||Days in NHL If 2-way||Prorated Cap Hit||Projected Roster|
The new deal doesn’t change things a great deal. There is less than $4 million in space on a projected roster that is still short some players, and Rasmus Sandin, Pierre Engvall and Ondřej Kaše remain unsigned and are counted in at only their qualifying offer amounts, which as we’ve seen today will rise considerably as they are signed.

May: Maple Leafs Offseason Cap Calculation
The Maple Leafs have until July 11 to issue Qualifying Offers to their RFAs (or they can just skip that part and re-sign them).
