This would be great if some of the numbers weren't completely misleading. You can't include Gilmour, Wesley, or Nolan's full salary as part of last year's budget because the Leaf's weren't paying them until the trade deadline.
The Leaf's payed Gilmour less than $1 million last season so how can you say that the Leaf's trimmed $4 million from the budget by not renewing his contract? Do you see why I say those numbers are misleading? Im pretty sure Nolan only made $5.5 million last year too.
Anyway, you're list also doesn't include the fact that almost every Leaf player received a raise this season as part of his normal contract. The Leaf's payroll isn't less than year's, quite the contrary, it's substantially higher.
