I find it hard to believe that even if the Leafs ate half his salary they couldn't find a trading partner. Makes little sense.
IMO Timmah is worth a 1 million contract right now. So even if they eat half, he's still overpaid and an injury risk. I can see it.

What I am saying is they don't need the cap space, waive and send down yes. Waste buyout, no thank you. I think i was misunderstood. I agree with kids needing to play to see what we have in them.

The new rules are really going to help out teams like Toronto. Being able to take on some salary to facilitate trades is going to really help out with player movement.

You're missing Rielly for the time being until Gardiner gets back, but yes that looks about right. I'd put Gardiner with Phaneuf and Gunnar with Liles.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding but are you really upset that the league didn't reduce Torres' suspension just because the season is shorter?

The buyout like Redden and Gomez would make zero sense in a case with the player on the last year of his deal. The issue with thsoe two was the risk of injury and being stuff with the contract for next year. If anything the Leafs would send him to the AHL. It would accomplish the same thing.

James Mirtle believes that if Connolly goes unclaimed on waivers, then the Leafs will likely try to pull of a deal like yesterday, moving Connolly to a team looking for a Top 6 forward and absorbing part of his cap hit.

Isn't this obvious? Because there are a limited number of them, of course - and being as such, they are valuable. So wasting one on a pending UFA when you can just as easily demote him is absurd.

That was literally the look on his face through his entire first press conference as GM.

Still doing better than Burke so far, though.

I actually cannot believe a Leafs fan would leave Frattin as the odd man out...the guy is an absolute beast; he hits well, his shot is probably the best on the team, he's solid defensively, and obviously his skating is pretty impressive as well.

1. I think they waived him first to see if there are any takers for his full salary.

2. I believe if no one picks him up at full pop, they will attempt to trade him retaining partial salary.

3. Stop talking about compliance buyout... It wouldn't apply, but rather they would do a REGULAR buyout paying out only 2/3rds of his salary over 2x the term retaining that cap hit.

??

What I understand is that there are only 2 amnesty buyouts in this CBA. The rest of the buyouts would have a cap hit associated with them.

Or am I out to lunch?

From the perspective that the "amnesty buy-out's" still count 100% (less the $900K credit) against the salary cap this year, because TC's contract is up at the end of the year, there is NO benefit to the utilizing an amnesty buy-out on him. They'd be better off moving him and keeping half the cap hit & salary, which would still save them $1.5+ of cap space, as well as some real cash. If there's no takers - send him to the Marlies. That would be the same cap and salary implications as buying him out, and wouldn't take use one of the Leafs amnesty buy-outs.

TC is different from Redden or Gomez that they were told to go home because the team was afraid they would get hurt prior to the amnesty guy out period and they both had salary committed to them after this year. That's not the case with Connelly.

From my perspective - TOR has the ability to trade for a bad contract on a budget teams that doesn't have the $'s to spend for a compliance buy-out, and add an asset (how good an asset depending on how big the $ buy out is).

Ok, seriously, who are we bringing in????? NOBODY, that's who. It is only my opinion, doesn't make me wrong or right. And the buyouts maybe used in the next two seasons after this. Are you saying there is zero chance of a uber rich team like the Leafs not trying to buy a 1st rounder? He was waived simply to free up a roster space,IMO.

It will be interesting to see if anyone claims him at 100%. It will also be interesting to see what the Leafs can get for a 50% pro rated Connolly. Toronto really took the new CBA rules to heart right off the bat.
This move is 100% roster spot. The Leafs will have some Marlies in the lineup on Sat which is a good thing really. I can't remember a time when Toronto had so much cap space available!
