Like spend a lot of money on free agents when it should have focused on securing it's young core. You know - like good teams around the league normally do?
More like over-analyzing.

You act as if Nonis and the rest of Leafs management can't think ahead 2-3 months at a time.

Every single team in the league typically leaves the re-signing of RFAs until after the UFA period begins. Go around the league and most teams have a significant RFA unsigned at the moment, after having splurged on free agents.

I'm sure Nonis has a plan in place. He isn't blindly throwing money around. He knew that signing Bozak and Clarkson would make things tight, but he has plenty of time and options to make it work.

You guys are inventing a problem here. We're 7 weeks from training camp and 10 weeks from the start of the season. There's plenty of time to get things done and manoeuvre our way under the cap before the games start.

It's funny, most of the amateur capologists here who are complaining about our cap crunch are probably the same ones who would lament when Burke wouldn't pony up money for free agents.

Stop panicking about something that isn't an issue yet.
