They only have 9.7M in cap space too. Gunnarsson will be looking at 3M+, Kadri at 4M+, and Franson at 2-3M. Fraser will get about 1M. They will likely need to move some cap (Kulemin) to help fill out the wings adjacent to Bolland on line 3.

Maybe a bit more than a 2nd - but definitely not something like MPS added to the package.
He is invaluable to the leafs. He is an elite third line winger. He is faced to shut down top lines every night and does a good job of it. He's the hardest worker on our team.

Your cap problem comment is wrong btw. We're allowed to be 10% over cap during the offseason and I'm sure we plan on a trade or two in the next three months. Maybe liles for a pick to free up room. Tons of options.
