Okay, so this one may not be that bold of a prediction.
Rumors have been swirling off and on about Roberto Luongo coming to Toronto dating back to last season.
Now, however, the chance that the Leafs can scoop him up has increased.
Because after this season, the Leafs will be in great shape when it comes to the 2013-14 salary cap (as it stands, they'll have $28.6 million in cap space per CapGeek) and they'll have a compliance buyout to use to clear even more space.
So Luongo's contract doesn't pose as much of a problem.
Secondly, Vancouver's cap situation has become more dire.
It desperately needs to clear Luongo and another big salary, like Keith Ballard's, in order to have the necessary funds to lock up all of its star players.
But the Canucks can only use one buyout this year and one next year.
That's where the Leafs step in and take on Luongo's salary, allowing Vancouver to use its compliance buyout for 2013-14 on Ballard.
The time is right for Toronto to get on the phone with Vancouver and make a deal happen.
