After posting my 2010 Mock Offseason for the Vancouver Canucks on the weekend, I received a few emails from readers asking for my take on their favourite club. Naturally, a significant portion of these messages were from Leafs fans. I decided to tackle the Leafs for other reasons besides the numerous requests – the Tomas Kaberle saga, the need for offense, and Dion Phaneuf's swagger all drew me to Toronto's offseason situation.

 

Right now, the Leafs have a lot of holes up front, a lot of high-paid defensemen, and a stable goaltending situation.

 

The current roster (as of June 21st):

 

Viktor Stalberg $850k Tyler Bozak $3.7 mill Phil Kessel $5.4 mill
Nikolai Kulemin RFA Mikhail Grabovski $2.9 mill Darcy Tucker’s buyout $1 mill
Luca Caputi $833k John Mitchell RFA Colton Orr $1 mill
Fredrik Sjostrom $750k Christian Hanson RFA
