Maple Leafs off-season cover account

Maple Leafs off-season cover account

It’s time once again to track down the Maple Leafs’ off-season cover space. why? Because even though the Offseason is actually six weeks away and all current contracts are still in place, for all intents and purposes, the Leafs are already in offseason, so we can pretend it’s July. They can only make deals and sign new contracts they will have space once the free agency starts.

CapFri Friendly does not track off-season space. And no, the unofficial amount isn’t important what CapFri Friendly plus the 10% discount pad is. That’s not even how this is calculated remotely. What they show you in the off-season mode is a predicted list of players for the next season, and it allows you to get a very good idea of ​​the future situation in the season, which is most important for most teams. Offseason is its own beast, and for most teams, the true account is moot. But for teams sailing right at the cap, it’s essential to keep track of this as some contracts may have to wait for other moves depending on how their paychecks are structured.

The concept seems complicated, but not just by seeing it in action. The following are counted towards the salary cap:

  • All contracts are one-way
  • All two-way contracts broken down by the number of days you played in the NHL in the previous season
  • All RFA Qualifying Bid Amounts are prorated as above
  • Any purchases or salaries withheld
  • Draw rewards (The Leafs have $212,500 this season)

You add it all up, and you should fit the maximum salary plus 10% into the excess cushion. This protection exists to make signing free agents possible, but it disappears on the first day of the season when these accounts disappear and the usual method of naming a roster of no more than 23 players with everyone else in the AHL is excluded.

Remember: No one is actually from the palace out of season. Everyone is on the Leafs list until the boot camp sale starts.

Only days in the NHL list, IR number, or LTIR. Days on the emergency call no.

Well, there is a lot of information to unpack.

  • There is plenty of room now to do things like sign the goalkeeper and fix it afterwards
  • The projected listing space of $4.5 million is incredibly misleading
  • There is not much room in the list in more ways than one

The Offseason space will decrease each time someone signs a one-way deal or when regular roster players re-sign two-way deals. Having plenty of two-way deals for AHL players makes managing cover easier in the off-season, and you won’t find many trainees in a one-way division.

The projected roster here contains 20 players, which is what “Contracts” in this column refers to. Of those 20 players, four are listed in their qualifying bid amounts, and each of those players gets a raise. Assuming the four stayed with the Leafs, most of the cover space was accounted for.

The only goalkeeper is Petr Mrázek, so to get 21 players, the least you have to reasonably work with, you should add a goalkeeper as well. Even assuming that Merzak has been traded, the space to do so is tight. So I think clear decisions have to be made, not bottom-up, but top-down. It’s also clear that there aren’t a lot of jobs available on Leafs unless someone trades away first.

I never like the question, “Is there enough room to contract the X player.” The answer is always yes, and I say it every year at this time. The question should always be, “What are the priorities, who comes first, and then what space is available to fill around them?”

This is why I think these RFA deals need to be addressed fairly soon. If Engvall and Kaše go to arbitration, all other moves have to happen before their contract amounts are known, which is by no means ideal.

At the exact same time, the goalkeeper’s large decision tree must be worked on. Do they keep a mezzie, try to trade him, find another goalkeeper, or something more complicated?

The other pressure is total contracts. The SPC is 48, if you assume that all 8 RFPs are re-signed. This is as good a sign as any that they won’t be. All those signings of new deal prospects over the past few weeks have also said there will be turmoil in the Marlies. Some of these players will be loaned to rookie hockey (Voit for example), and won’t count against the 50 SPC limit, but no team goes to a free agency with very little room to sign players.

The terms “reboot” are shorthand and thus misleading. There are inevitable changes coming, as there is no room to re-sign every player with an increase given to five regular players on the roster and a goalkeeper. The Leafs need to move the ball in their negotiations, but where will they focus first? I would have locked Sanden and Allegreen before anyone else, but the Leafs might also feel they have to wait for playoffs to see where all the other teams are sitting. After all, why not completely retool the trophy in the two weeks between awarding the trophy and the free agency?
