but hey this is the internet and you're probably right
Everyone knows why they capped rookie salaries but that has nothing to do with this discussion .

So the Leafs were maxed out but they had no problem paying Raycroft and then adding Tosk the following year ( which would have been Rasks 1st full year in the league ) yet couldn't afford to pay Rask who would have had a smaller cap hit and earned less than both .
