The next few months or so are crucial for the future of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are firmly in win-now mode, but don't seem to be very close to winning now. The GM has promised change, but most options to change are closed by a whole bunch of no-movement contracts.

There are a number of unrestricted and restricted free agents that are coming off the books this season, and it is there that the Leafs must look to alter their lineup, as they have few other choices.

Many times in recent years, there have been young players that have left the organization in various ways and have gone on to find plenty of success elsewhere.

As the team continues to allocate more and more cap space to the roster, it will be paramount to their success to continue to replenish depth and have contributions from low-cost players which typically comes from homegrown talent. Or, through finding undervalued assets which is considerably more difficult.

That being said, there are a number of restricted free agent players up for contract renewals this off-season and it is important that Treliving spends a lot of time and effort considering these assets.

Here is how I think the Leafs should deal with their upcoming restricted free-agents.
