The Leafs are not in a position of needing to utilize any buyouts. They will not make a trade with the intent of moving cap at the cost of their own assets. Lombardi and Connolly will play themselves out of their current contracts; Komisarek could be bought out; but there is no point. The Leafs have breathing room and a few D injuries. No need to rid themselves of Komisarek.

Rielly and Gardiner are not going anywhere; I doubt the 1st moves either.
