The Leafs have a 48 hour window during which they can buyout any eligible player after Fraser's arbitration is resolved.

Eligibility requirements are from CBA 11.18:
- Teams are limited to 3 total buyouts in the 2nd buyout window following arbitration over the lifetime of the new 2013 CBA.
- Player to be bought out must have a salary cap hit of at least $2.75m. This amount increases year to year by the same % that average player salary increases.
- Player must have been on the team's roster as of the most recent trade deadline.
