The Toronto Maple Leafs' season is just about over. Mathematically, they are still in the playoff picture, but the grim truth is that this will make it seven years since the Leafs had their last playoff appearance. With their season all but done, the management will begin looking at the upcoming free agents for 2012. There are a total of 19 players becoming free agents, but only six are unrestricted.
The following slides will take a look at predictions for which of the six upcoming unrestricted free agents will be re-signing with Toronto, and which will be looking for a new place to play.
Looking at who will become unrestricted this summer, MLSE has a few decisions to make. Some will be harder than others, and some could have more of an impact on the future of the organization.
HockeyDB helped provide a more comprehensive view of what management will be looking for when deciding which of the players they will either sign or let walk. This insight will include the potential of some of the players, who have little NHL experience, by looking at their minor league stats.
