So it's shaping up like we are losing Hymn! the sign and trade will be for peanuts. That said I didn't see the wing of McJesus opening up for Hymn and that will make McJesus pretty much unbeatable in points next year.

As I listening to Dube talk it looks like we are only going to get reinforcements through the Marlins lol! But then I thought about it and I was like k maybe they do something like this, move Riley to the left wing and build the line up this way.
Sign Glachenyuk 2 years @ 1.5 million per year
Sign Bogosain 2 years @ 2.5 million per season
Sign Ritchie 2 years @ 1.75 million per season
Sign Nash 2 years @ 1.5 million per season

Forward lines
Riley/Mathews/Marner
Robertson/Tavares/Nylander
Mikheyev/Kerfoot/Engvall
Simmonds/Spezza/Galchenyuk
Extras: Brooks, Anderson and Nash

Defensive lines
Muzzin/Holl
Bogosain/Brodie
Sandin/Dermot
Extras: Lilijigren and Hollwell

Goalies
Campbell Sg
Ritchie Bg
Extras: Hutchinson

So I think this isn't flashy but with a flat cap it leaves us open for at least one flashy move to put us over the top. I spent roughly 7.25 million filling in the blanks. Next season we gain 1.2 off the kessel tax so signing Riley don't seem to be a big task unless he wants OEL money his 5 + 1.2 of kessel gets us to 6.2

Mcann gets picked in the expansion draft after all that said I still like these moves!

Let Andersen, Hymn, Folingo walk. Let Thornton retire and become a assistant coach. Then sign these players.

Sign Galchenyuk 2 years @ 1.5 million per year.
Sign Bogosain 2 years @ 1.5 million per year
Sign Ritchie 2 years @ 1 million per year
Sign Hutton 2 years @ 1.2 million per year
Sign Nash 2 years @ 900k per year
Sign Saad 3 years 3 million per season

After the free agency is opened and you move Riley from Defence to left wing our team would look like this

Forward lines
Riley/Mathews/Marner
Galchenyuk/Tavares/Nylander
Mikheyev/Kerfoot/Saad
Engvall/Spezza/Simmonds
Extras: Nash

Defensive lines
Muzzin/Holl
Sandin/Brodie
Bogosain/Hutton
Extras: Lilijigren & Dermot

Goalies
Campbell Sg
Ritchie Bg

LHD out!

Never got much love on the first attempt of this post but since I'm stubborn I'm shooting this out there again with some more twists!

Toronto's protection list
Mathews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander, Riley, Muzzin, Holl, Brodie and Campbell (actually turns out to be the protection list)

Lose Mcann to the Kraken then make these moves!
Let Andersen, Hymn, Folingo walk. Let Thornton retire and become a assistant coach. Then sign these players.

Sign Galchenyuk 2 years @ 1.5 million per year.
Sign Bogosain 2 years @ 1.5 million per year
Sign Ritchie 2 years @ 1 million per year
Sign Hutton 2 years @ 1.2 million per year
Sign Nash 2 years @ 900k per year

After the free agency is opened and you move Riley from Defence to left wing our team would look like this

Forward lines
Riley/Mathews/Marner = 27.5
Galchenyuk/Tavares/Nylander = 19.4
Mikheyev/Kerfoot/Engvall = 6.4
Simmonds/Spezza/Nash = 2.5
Total = 55.8

Defensive lines
Muzzin/Holl = 7.7
Sandin/Brodie = 5.9
Bogosain/Hutton = 2.7
Total = 16.3

Goalies
Campbell Sg = 1.6
Ritchie Bg = 1
Total = 2.6
Grand total = G 2.6 + D 16.3 + 55.8 + kessel tax 1.2 = 75.9 - 81.5 = 5.6 million left!
Sign Saad 3 years 3 million per season and that leaves us with 2.6 million to find another depth D

Trade
Tor gets
Fabbro D

Nashville gets
Lilijigren D
Brooks C

New Forward lines
Riley/Mathews/Marner
Saad/Tavares/Nylander
Galchenyuk/Kerfoot/Mikheyev
Simmonds/Engvall/Soezza

Defensive lines
Muzzin/Holl
Bogosain/Brodie
Fabbro/Hutton

Goalies
Campbell Sg

You can't spend half your cap on 4 guys, and the other half on 19. You can't build depth or a winner like that.

Have to find a way to trade Marner and Nylander. You don't win playoff games with sweethearts like those two, and their cap hits can be better spent of D and Goalies.

Championship teams are built from the net out, not a first line or two back. Every fan knows that. Dubas doesn't.

I read a nice article about Riley and it got my juices following so here goes it!

Toronto's protection list
Mathews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander, Riley, Muzzin, Holl, Brodie and Campbell

Lose Dermot even though the consensus is Kerfoot. And then make these moves!
Let Andersen, Hymn, Folingo walk. Let Thornton retire and become a assistant coach. Then sign these players.

Sign Galchenyuk 2 years @ 1.5 million per year.
Sign Bogosain 2 years @ 1.5 million per year
Sign Ritchie 2 years @ 1 million per year
Sign Hutton 2 years @ 1.2 million per year
Sign Nash 2 years @ 900k per year

After the free agency is opened and you move Riley from Defence to left wing our team would look like this

Forward lines
Riley/Mathews/Marner
Galchenyuk/Tavares/Nylander
Mikheyev/Kerfoot/Engvall
Simmonds/Mcann/Spezza
Extras: Brooks, Nash

Defensive lines
Muzzin/Holl
Sandin/Brodie
Bogosain/Hutton
Extras: Lilijigren & Hollowell

Goalies
Campbell Sg
Ritchie Bg
Extras: Hutchinson

Now I never put pen to paper on the cap but I think we're under the cap and Riley moved into the left wing position puts us in better position to keep everyone. If some captologist want to figure out how much we have left I'm sure we would be able reinforce the troops. I thought this was a great solution to keeping what we got but adding a different look or should I say another bite at that apple.

LHD out!

Seattle would be dumb to pass on McCann.

Leafs should of done this with rielly last year so then they could protect 7-3 with rielly taking up a forward spot.

I agree they should’ve of switched him.

K so Galchenyuk maybe overpaid in my proposal but I would guesstimate that He produces equally or better than hymn if given the same role. If hymn wants more let him walk and we have some more money to play with like going after a Niederreiter type player or even see what Folingo wants. Hymn isn’t worth 4 million but I agree I think someone will offer him more and he should take it.

Yup run it back! And yes it looks like I left out kessel so not much spending left over. Lol! That said hymn can go else where he isn’t worth 5 million a season. He’s playing with top talent that are softer than him which in case makes himself look better by going to the dirty areas!
Fu$k Hymn! If he walks!
