Free Agent and RFAs for Toronto Maple Leafs

With an estimated $57 million already committed for next season, Brian Burke will have to be prudent with his signings. Still, it will be worthwhile to make offers to all of these players, as many teams require lower-paid players to fill out their rsoters. Evene if the Maple Leafs do not intend on keeping every one of them, a player signed to a reasonable contract becomes a trade-able commodity.

Here are suggestions for the contract offers to our two free agents and four RFAs:

Gustavsson - Ideally the rights to negotiate with him would be moved for a 3rd round pick or a prospect. A proven NHL goalie plus Reimer to start with the Leafs, and Scrivens and Owuya to start with the marlies would be the best scenario.

If there is no interest after June 30, I would still offer a two-way deal for two years, with the goal of trading him or starting him with the Marlies next year:

AHL: 400/550
NHL: 1.2 mil / 1.4 mil

Crabb - Hopefully not too many teams want to take a 4th liner from a non-playoff team, however the odds are probably stacked against the leafs being able to retain him. Offer 2.7 mil over 3 years:

700k, 900k, 1.1 mil

Restricted Free Agents

Player (Current) - Suggested Contract

Scrivens (600)- Add or subtract 100-200 depending on AHL playoffs. 3 years for $3 million, two-way deal. (900k, 1.0 mil, 1.1l mil)

Franson (800) - 3 years, 4.2 mil. (1.1, 1.4, 1.7 mil)

Frattin (600) - Two-way deal: 4 years $5 mil. (700/1.1, 850/1.2, 900/1.3, 950/1.4 mil)

Rosehill (600) - Two-way deal, 2 years for $1.6 mil. (350/700, 450/900)
