What about this going into next season...

Kopitar, Carter, Richards, Doughty = $25,000,000
Gagne, Brown, Williams, Greene and Scuderi = $16,200,000

That's $41,000,000 tied up in 6 forwards and 3 defencemen.

Salary cap is dropping to probably closer to $60M from $64M.

You have about $19-22M to spend on 6 forwards and 3 defencemen. You have to replace Willie Mitchell ($3.5M) and moving a guy like Richardson ($1.2M) doesn't help you since you have to replace him with a player that will cost you at least around $1M. You save a couple hundred grand.

Moving Brown or Gagne are the only solutions to improving the overall team.

Talked to a guy I know close to the Ott situation and said he doesn't have a NTC, he can go anywhere.

So that clears that up.

Well, for one, LA is trying to make the playoffs so they'd most likely move him for a roster player or two. Secondly, it should really be obvious that teams at the bottom of the standings are more willing to dump these types. Toronto doesn't have leverage in this case.. moving on..

He won't go to Toronto. I am fairly certain of it. I'm sorry if your feelings have been hurt.(not really)

Bahaha, good one. I'm not a Maple Leafs fan. And like I said, Brown does not have a nmc. If L.A. Wants to move him, they will, no matter where.

What makes you so sure? I'm really interested in what you have to say, almighty prophet.

If the asking price is Schenn+, I hope you're right.
