“We are working on some things that might free up some (salary) cap space and if that happens, it will have an impact (on what the Leafs might do in free agency),” Nonis said on Sunday. “We’re definitely going to look at our options between now and Friday at every position and there might be some things that open up, more likely via trade. I think teams are going to leave New Jersey and take stock of what they have.
“It’s not going to go quiet after today.”
Don’t expect to see winger Clarke MacArthur return to Toronto. MacArthur is heading toward free agency, and Nonis said it’s “definitely a possibility” that MacArthur will not be re-signed.
Nonis said it’s possible, but unlikely, that he will use both compliance buyouts prior to the deadline on Thursday, and it’s all but certainty one will be used on defenceman Mike Komisarek. MacArthur was a $3.25-million US salary cap hit last season, Komisarek $3.575 million.
