Leafs will be fine you can’t keep everyone in any sport but baseball because of the cap.If you have several elite young talents , you’re hosed .leafs have marner, Matthews , nylander ...this makes it difficult to even have one not so good contract with the cap .. the margins shouldn’t be so razor thin .. owners def owned the players after the last work stoppage
Leafs did pay Tavares a lot of money this past offseason and that is probably Marner’s money.
They would be smart to trade Marner for a top 10 pick in this draft and get a young cheap defensemen as the Leafs have enough speed on their two lines even without Marner.
The forward depth for Toronto is elite.
They just don’t even have a defenseman as good as Brandon Carlo and he is the Bruins 2nd best young defensemen behind McAvoy.
Reilly is a good offensive defensemen but his defense wasn’t that great and he was probably the best Toronto D men in that series just now.
