Roughly 12 mill for 5 players? yea... I think we can make that work. Especially with two of them making less than a mill coming up from the farm.
The Leafs will do what ever it takes to get Malkin on this team if he indeed hits UFA. Listen we still have 2 amnesty clauses to use as well on top of cap space the hated Burke left is with. Personally, if there is any inclination at all that Malkin may indeed hit UFA, the Leafs should keep the amnesty buyouts until next year if needed. I would continue to pay Komisarek to sit in press box or Marlies, and hope that Grabovski and Liles have bounce back seasons where their market value will be better for trade next season. If they do not bounce back then buy them out next year. The key to this year is what to do with Bozak and how much to sign him for and what to do with Kadri. If they can get both of these guys on cheap deals, fair deals...without over spending then save buyouts for next years FA where the list is far better then this years.
