We're still early in the cycle of this CBA, so salary comparables are being developed. Complicating things even more is that the cap is set to drop next year for the first time, making it tough to project how much room the Maple Leafs may have in the future when calculating what a fair price for Kessel might be.

"I think that the NHL has already distributed preliminary analysis of where the cap is going each year for the next three or four years. I know that we have our own," one prominent agent said. "It's been artificially set at $64.3 million, then I think we'll be up in the 66-67 range the following year, and we'll be back to $70 [million] by Year 3."

$66M-$67M for 14-15
$70M for 15-16
