Throw some money at Clarkson if he makes it to free agency. Also, target some teams up against the cap to see if there's a buy low situation to take advantage of.
I don't think we need to be trading major pieces or anything like that, but I believe Nonis usual patient approach will be the right thing to do here.
I think the guys I mentioned letting go can be replaced internally, and as I said if there's a situation to bring in an upgrade, then you do it. If not, I'm fine with seeing what Gardiner can do with a full, healthy season. Ditto for Colborne and Frattin.
As much as I'd like to see Grabo gone, I know it won't happen, as it would cost the Leafs somewhere in the ball park of $14 million to buy him out. Most likely they will let O'byrne and Mac walk and Komi/Liles will be bought out(if they need the cap space).
