Many teams have a lot of cap space next year and everyone has the same cap and next year even more money will be going for Leafs' fans pockets to the competition to help fund the acquisition of free agents.

Leafs don't have the same prospect depth as some teams.

Leafs need to decide whether they want to continue the slow rebuild or if they want to spend some of their few prospects for a win now couple of assets.

At least they no longer have one of the most disliked coaches in charge, but they do have one that had issues with potential free agents.

The 197475 season saw another change to its playoff system to accommodate the league of 18 teams, twelve of which qualified for the playoffs. The top team from each division would earn a bye to the quarterfinal, while the second- and third-place teams from each division started their playoff run from a best-of-three preliminary round.
