Can't afford to make bad investments like Finger, Stempniak etc... Next year the Leafs should have enough money to bring in another 1st line talent. So it boils down to how far you think the talent of the team below can go.... (roughly, didn't put time into line formations or figure out the exact cap numbers, just a quick glance of team talent)

Poni Grabs Kessel
5 mill+ FA Kadri Tlusty
Kulemin Hagman Bozak
Blake?? Stajan Orr

Kaberle Komi
Beauch Schenn
White Finger

Gus/Toskala
?????

That would leave Mitchell, Stalberg, Stefanovich still.
Hahahaha, So Blake is our 4th line grinder next year, huh? Too funny.
