I could see the Isles picking him up to play defense.
who knows maybe the nucks?

The former. I'd be glad to show you the frame by frame, too. Just not in this thread. Feel free to bump the suspension thread in the Coyotes.forum. I'd be happy to pick this up there.

Not often you see a nice middle-six center who got almost 40 points go for free... fairly young yet... maybe NYI but I would bet BUF takes him back...

Would the team have to pay 66% and have that as a cap hit (33% per year) for the next ~15 years?

I am confused about the current system, or the "specialty" case for the cap going down etc.
Does anyone have a good handle on this?
If a player is bought out before this season, he gets 100% of this year's salary and 2/3rs or 1/3 of other year's, depending on their age. They would count against the cap this year, but for the same hit as if they are in the minors. They won't count against the cap in any other year.

Doubt Buffalo takes him back. I think Regier/Ruff got tired of him by the end. If they do though...

This is just about opening up a roster spot, it's not about cap space. If a team picks him up then that team takes it on. Nonis is going young and giving guys like Kadri a shot.

Finally someone sees the light. If we wanted a top 5 pick, we would have kept Lombardi and Connolly, as they were both very useless last year. Frattin was better than both in his time with the Leafs, and Kadri has been better than both during camp.

It will actually be an upgrade.

Not with that contract, it's worse than Lui's


Sooooo the Leafs are going to go with:

Grab
Bozak
McClement
Steckl

and Aucoin if someone gets hurt? Who's after that Colborne at your C position?

I just want to say congratulations to the Leafs, they are really starting to move in the right direction even if they don't do any better in the standings this year at least we know they are going to be building for the future by letting the kids play.

I always found that to be an exciting point in a team's progress.

Isn't Kadri going to play center?
That may be the weakest group in the NHL but I understand why they waive Connolly.

They are going to go the Edmonton route, I think we are starting to see why Burke was fired. He obviously wanted to make the playoffs and management didn't see his vision. Fair enough.

Kadri has been playing center and might start as a center, his natural position.

They have Colborne as the next center in line to be called up if injuries happen.

There's also Gregg McKegg that could be a call up. Kenny Ryan and Spencer Abbott are capable centers.

Not great but could be worst, like having Ebbett as your 2nd line center.

I could really see Van picking him up. Would be a cheap option and he can still produce more than Gomez.

Bozak
Grabovski

Top 2 centers.

Kadri
McClement

Jay with the shutdown line, Kadri most likely centering the sheltered scoring line.

Steckel an extra. Looking better then Van's center depth with Kesler out.
