With a 30 million dollar salary cap the Leafs would stand to lose a lot of players even with the players taking a 24% paycut. The Leafs current sallary is roughly 62 million dollars. With the pay cut that puts them just over 47 million dolars. The Leafs would then have to trim .............. 15 Million from the payroll to comply with cap.

Here is what the Leafs would probably be forced to lose in my opinion.

Ed Belfour 6.08 M
Brian Leetch 4.684 M
Owen Nolan 4.94 M
Joe Nieuwendyk 2.28 M

*Note* These salaries are with the proposed 24% pay cut. These cuts leave just enough room to sign Aubin and Poni to new contracts. Leaving no money left over.

Now this puts the Leafs under the cap with no money left over for any free agent sighnings and a depleted prospect pool to replace these guys. The Leafs lineup might look some thing like this under Gary Bettman's plan.

Roberts - Sundin - Mogiliny
Tucker - Antropov - Poni
Wellwood - Stajan - Kilger
Wilm or Ling - Steen - Domi (Belak for a spare)

McCabe - Kaberle
Klee - Colaiacovo
Berg - Pilar

Aubin - Tellqvist
