But this seems like a good year not to get involved. It's a pretty thin crop, we aren't likely to improve significantly with one or two UFA additions, and after next season we'll have all kinds of contracts coming off the books to take a run at some of the more enticing free agents of the 2013 crop. Better off sitting on the sidelines this time around.
Sounds to me like someone gets why signing Beauchemin, Connolly, CMac, Connolly, Armstrong, Bozak and Komisarek all made sense as well as trading for Lombardi.
Capspace can't ever be carried forward from a previous year and the Leafs are a team that should always spend to the cap.
