The Leafs appear to have what is likely a quiet off season if season ending interviews are to be taken at face value and they are not rushing anything.

UFA's include Brian Boyle who I believe will be replace internally by The Goat. Roman Polak and Matt Hunwick who seem 50/50 depending on if they sign or promote a guy they think is a long term D solution. Finally McElhinney seems as good a candidate as any for backup again as he will be cheap and they know he fits in the room.

RFA's are Zach Hyman, Connor Brown, and Zaitsev. All where given significant responsibility last season and there success was a key to the Leafs surprise season all be it over shadowed by the big three rookies they played with. Lots of raises to go around will guess something like annual deals for brown and Hyman around 2.5/per and Zaitsev around 4m/per.

Interestingly their top four AHL forwards for points where Rychel, Leipsic, and Johnson who are all 22 yrs old then Kapanan at 20. Then on D they had Nielsen and Dermott as the top two point producing D-men who are twenty. They seem to be leaning on young players and they are delivering which should bode well for them being able to add the depth players internally that good teams need to be able to do in the NHL.

Zaitsev signs at 4.5per for 7 years. Little more than I thought and long but only takes him too 32yrs old.
