Leafs GM Dubas would have preferred not to trade Johnsson or Kapanen

Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas didn’t want to trade wingers Andreas Johnsson and Kasperi Kapanen. “In a perfect world, you would love to be able to keep everybody, but the world is far from perfect these days and you have to adapt,” Dubas said. “With the salary cap being what it is, we would have loved to have kept both players, but we had to make calls to give ourselves flexibility to add TJ Brodie and the different elements we wanted through the lineup.”...

Johnsson, now a Devil, figured salary-cap issues would force Leafs to trade him

Hockey players often will say they’re surprised, if not shocked, to learn they have been traded. Not Andreas Johnsson. Dealt by the Maple Leafs to the New Jersey Devils for forward Joey Anderson on Saturday, Johnsson had an idea he would be on the move. “Because of the salary cap,” Johnsson said during a conference call on Monday with...

Toronot Maple Leafs: Kyle Dubas continues to re-tool roster

The Toronto Maple Leafs subtracted Andreas Johnsson and added Zach Bogosian as Kyle Dubas continues the team’s necessary makeover. You got the sense after Day 1 of free agency that the Toronto Maple Leafs were nowhere close to being done with the additions and subtractions without making any substantial changes to the team’s core.

Toronto Maple Leafs Trade Andreas Johnsson to New Jersey

The Toronto Maple Leafs traded winger Andreas Johnsson to the New Jersey Devils for Joey Anderson. After weeks of speculation, the Toronto Maple Leafs finally traded Andreas Johnsson.

Maple Leafs Cap Space after the Andreas Johnsson Trade

Maple Leafs Cap Space after the Andreas Johnsson Trade

Photo by Kevin Sousa/NHLI via Things look much better, but looks can be deceiving. Now that the Leafs have made a few more moves, it’s time to check the cap space again. They traded Andreas Johnsson for unsigned RFA Joey Anderson and signed Travis Boyd to a minimum salary contract. Anderson goes in at his QO amount, but I’m imagining him not on the NHL roster right away. I put Nick Robertson on to fill the role vacated by Johnsson, and added Boyd, removing Egor Korshkov for now. There’s many other plausible rosters. This 23-man setup is over the cap by a few hundred thousand,...
