Well I can tell you one of your wishes for next week will not be coming true..

Amnesty buyouts are for next season, not this current one, so no one will be bought out if the lockout ends and there is hockey this season as the cap will remain at $70 mil.

The amnesty buyout is designed for next year when the cal ceiling may drop to $60 mil, giving teams options to comply to the new lower cap floors and ceilings.

Paul Ranger is a UFA and not Leaf property at the moment, so if Toronto does want him on their blue-line they will need to sign him to an NHL contract first. For this season (if there is one) they might have to decide between unsigned RFA Cody Franson and Paul Ranger for the last roster spot on defense.
