So looking at the Leafs cap situation, they have less than 10 million to sign Kadri, Gunarsson and Franson still.

I'm thinking... if Gagner talks go south (as arbitration would indicate they are doing), what about throwing a $5mil offersheet at Kadri? All 5 of their top forwards have NTC/MCs, they just traded for Bolland, and they'll be hard pressed to find a taker for Liles, the guy who would be their only other legitimate out for cap space. Furthermore, I could see them thinking of Lupul-Bozak-Kessel and JVR-Bolland-Clarkson as a legitimate top 6. Add in the fact that Kadri absolutely loves Coach Eakins and has another Muslim star to play with. The script kind of writes itself.

It also frees up Gagner as trade bait, and trade bait that looks alot better than Hemsky or Schultz at this point.

In all likelihood they match and make it work, but I always like seeing the Leafs get screwed over. Never liked them since the Domi/Corson/Tucker days.
