You really think Fehr will let 30 of his clients out to dry?

No. He wont/

But the biggest assumption you are making is if the Leafs are capable of spending wisely.

The other year they had $8 million they signed Connolly and Lombardi.

The year before Komisarek, Beauchemain, Orr, and Gustavsson.

No evidence the Leafs are capable of landing big fish especially in the big tax region of Ontario.
Damn, have you been following the talks? It's the NHL that doesn't want an amnesty clause, not the NHLPA.
The NHL has said it doesn’t want transition rules like amnesty buyouts or limits on escrow in the new collective bargaining agreement.
Connolly-top 6 C with injury problems, was the 2nd best center out there.
Beachemin-top 4 D.
Komi-At the time, top 2 D playing with Markov.
Orr-4th liner, 1M isn't much.
Gustavvson-Highly regarded goalie prospect, all teams wanted to sign him. You'll eat your words after a season in Detroit.
Lombardi wasn't signed you -----. Go do some reasearch before you post.

And before, you were saying that you could sign a top UFA like Kessel, but now we can't in Canada?
