Chatter out there the Leafs are targeting Sami Vatanen. I'd be weary. He's out 5-6 months after surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder.

That's probably why they would be targeting him.

Still think Tanev is the one to target, but I guess Vancouver isn't having any of it.

Expansion lists expected to be made public on June 18th, draft from 18-20.

Should be fun to speculate once we get the lists, from the sounds of it, Vegas is making side deals with just about everybody in order to get extra draft picks.

Cap Friendly has a quick protect tool which automatically generates expansion lists. I believe it uses data from the 1000s of manually completed lists on their site. Probably gives about 90-95% of who's going to be exposed.

Fox over at SportsNet thinking Leafs will protect Martin in the expansion, leaving a guy like Leivo vulnerable.

That seems to be the general consensus. I also think that will happen.

One of Rychel, Leivo, Griffith, Marincin, and Bibeau will likely be the player selected.

I'm thinking they'll take Rychel from that list.  Maybe Leivo, but Rychel is younger.

Rychel is already pretty close to "bust" status, no?

He scored 52 points with the Marlies last season.  I'd say he and Leivo are about equal, but Rychel is younger.  Too good for AHL, but not quite top 6 material.  I think he'd fit on a 3rd line nicely (or higher on an expansion team).

The Leafs should cut Vegas a cheque for $10 million to take Marincin.

Drew Doughty was on Leafs Lunch today:

FYI, he's two years from UFA status.

Speaking of the added pressure of Fame in TO.

Doughty: "If, say I did for some reason play for the Leafs, I don't know if I could get used to that or not. I think that's the problem, why guys don't sign here."

 

or this....

I was about to say that is such a misleading tweet for fans. Outside of that "soft spot" sentence, he made it pretty clear he has no interest in playing here.

I guess we should pass on Alzner then.... Especially at the price he's going to get.

Leipsic. Or maybe Rychel.

Some of the fancy stat crowd is losing their minds over exposing Leipsic. I'm sure Gwyn is having a stroke right now.

But with the Leafs depth at wing and him needing to clear waivers next fall good chance he is lost for nothing in October anyway.

NHLPA uses inflator to push salary cap to $75-million. Gives the Leafs just over $24-million to spend with 37 contracts on the books, assuming they use up LTIR on Horton and Lupul.
