After another successful regular season, the Toronto Maple Leafs season is over with another first-round exit.
So what comes next? Will we see a coaching change or a member of the core four get traded? Some fans are calling for both of those things to happen. Then again, some Toronto Maple Leafs fans have been calling for that for years.
The salary cap is only going up by $1 million to $82.5 million next season, so a trade or two might be inevitable. According to capfriendly.com, Toronto currently has $7.8 million in available cap space. With four restricted free agents (RFA), and six unrestricted free agents (UFA), the Maple Leafs will have a busy off-season.
Toronto general manager Kyle Dubas has to decide who stays, and who goes. Free Agency begins on July 13th this year, so Dubas has time to meet with his management staff to discuss the team’s future. Let the speculation in Leafs Nation begin.
No matter what is done in the off-season, some fans will be happy and some left shaking their head. Here is a look at some of the decisions that the Toronto Maple Leafs will have to make this off-season.
