The Toronto Maple Leafs entered the 2024 NHL Free Agent market with roughly $13 million in capspace. The needs were clear: A starting goalie, at least one or two defensemen preferably right-handed, and a third-line centre.

The Toronto Maple Leafs were left with only $13 million after signing some extensions.

Forward Max Domi signed for four years and $3.75 million annual average value (AAV) and defenseman Timothy Liljegren for two years and $3 million AAV.

It will not impact their cap situation this year  but the team also signed goaltender Joseph Woll for three years at a $3.66 million AAV.

The team also announced they had re-signed Matt Murray for one-year at $875,000 but as a third-string goalie I have him playing with the Toronto Marlies next year and his caphit would not count.

Tyler Bertuzzi is not returning after signing with Chicago.

After last years mixed bag free agency, Brad Treliving entered this period with a full season under his belt and with a need to get things right.

Has he delivered? So far, I’m not so sure.
