    You really have Fraser as a 4th line forward? LOL. Sorry, Fraser is a D-man only. He won't be playing a second ever as a forward in the NHL.

    Orr - McClement - Smith/Broll/Leivo/who cares

    I thought about the Leafs turning him into a Belak type guy too so they could have a 21 man roster with a F or D replacement, so I don't think it's a joke, but I don't think it'll actually happen. IMO Rielly goes back, Fraser goes LTIR and Ashton and Smith stay.

    JVR/Bozak/Kessel
    Lupul/Kadri/Raymond
    Ashton/Bolland/Kulemin
    McClement/Smith/Orr
    *McLaren/**Clarkson

    Phaneuf/Gunnarsson
    Gardiner/Franson
    Liles/Ranger
    Fraser

    Cap Hit: 63.916667

    If Rielly stays, then Liles goes down I guess.

    Demote Liles to save 925K, LTIR McLaren.
    Send sown Ashton and Devane on off days to add a little breathing room.

    I prefer we stay under the cap without using the bonus cushion.

    Rielly may need some NHL games, Clarkson suspended, McLaren injured, Liles still on the team...

    It gives us extra breathing room and you mitigate against the improbable.

    Its easier to understand how much breathing room there is if when you factor in all known variables in the first place.

    We'll know soon enough, but I think the "Clarkson Fill-In" spot is down to two guys, based on preseason....both of them natural right wingers:

    Josh Leivo or Troy Bodie


    I'm no Bodie fan, but I have to admit he's earned a chance this preseason if we want him. And I could see Randy picking him to start.

    But either way, these IMO are the two guys that have stood out and I'm pretty sure it'll come down to one or the other to fill in for Clarkson.

    Not really, unless you know for a fact what the bonuses cover.

    What happens if its play 20+ games, you cover your bonus?

    The bonuses are pretty much known. Under the CBA there are only certain bonuses that can be attached to a ELC.
    Playing 20+ games isnt one of them. Most of them wont be determined till the end of the season.

    Here they are:

    Carter Ashton?
    He is a natural RW that had a great camp and plays the closest style of game to Clarkson.

    Leafs can squeeze both Rielly and Ashton under cap and leave $124,000 to spare. Could be opening lineup, if they go with seven on D.

    Would be surprised if that doesnt happen

    Looks like the 11-forwards scenario is the likely one to start the season:

    JVR - Bozak - Kessel
    Lupul - Kadri - Raymond
    Ashton - Bolland - Kulemin
    Orr - McClement

    IR/Susp: Clarkson, McLaren

    Gunnar - Phaneuf
    Gardiner - Franson
    Fraser/Rielly - Ranger

    Reimer
    Bernier

    That leaves us with only about $125k in capspace.


    funny/sad thing is that we might be a better team with 11 forwards than with McLaren as the 12th forward. It just means that our better forwards would get more icetime.
     
  23. Congrats to both morgan rielly and carter ashton in making the opening night roster. #TMLtalk

    But what about Leivo then?

    I was assuming he already made the team to replace McLaren.

    I think he's a natural LW, though.

    If Rielly plays, wonder who he bumps? Frasor or Gardiner?
