Just for a little fun on a Wednesday night... Most people seem to want William Nylander resigned (myself included). That said, the expectation of the fanbase is that Toronto will keep improving and become a cup contender. Build a 2019 roster that makes Toronto better team than the 2018 version will be, and try to be realistic in doing so... Matthews (11.0 million): 45-50 goals, 90+ points you're crazy if you think he's taking a penny less. Tavares (11.0 million) Marner (8.0 million): If he's healthy, he's putting up 75+ points this year. Playing with Tavares 5 on 5. Nylander (6.5 million): Seems like accurate value when looking at comparable contracts. Marleau (6.25 million) Reilly (5.0 million) Anderson (5.0 million) Kadri (4.5 million) Zaitsev (4.5 million) Hyman (2.25 million) Brown (2.1 million) Kessel (1.2 million) Dermott (863 thousand) Total= 68.237 million Key unsigned players Jake Gardiner Kasperi Kapanen Let's say the salary cap heading into 2019 is 82.0 million. You have 13.763 million dollars to build the rest of the roster and improve from the 2018 Toronto Maple Leafs. You need... 5 forwards 4 defensemen 1 backup goalie Feel free to suggest reasonable trades. Let's see your team!
