Toronto will lose a lot of bad contracts. Connolly and Lombardi and there will be an over grown UFA class because some of the players who were RFA's and UFAs last year will not have been signed. TO loses; Connolly, Lupul, Lombardi, MacArthur, Bozak, Steckle.
This might also save Burke's job. A Luongo trade and solid UFA signings and the Maple Leafs will be a playoff team.
If the players decertify those 3 firsts turn into 3 nothings. By the looks of it decertification is the players answer to a lockout.
