Leafs have 20 mill for 8 players. Sign Malkin for 10, that's 7 players for 10 mill.
Kadri just had a great year and that will cost the leafs. 3.5. Leaves them 6.5 for 6 players. Average 1 mill a player to leave some room for callups. Oh wait, Franson is RFA. He just had great year, too. 3 mill (if not more) for him. 3.5 for 5 players. Yeah... I don't think the Leafs will target Malkin for that price.
The Leafs can free up another $10 mil just by trading/amnestying Grabo and Komi... we'd go after Malkin 10000% if he hit the market, and we'd be willing to give him more than 10 if possible.
