From this look, a goalie, three defensemen and four forwards still to cut from the roster, which is a way over budget as it is. There has been some scuttlebutt that the Leafs will try and rid themselves of Jeff Finger from their line-up, but that hasn't been confirmed or denied much lately. It should be a fierce fight to the finish for this group though.
|Phil Kessel||Tomas Kaberle||Jonas Gustavsson|
|Kris Versteeg||Dion Phaneuf||J-S Giguere|
|Nikolai Kulemin||Francois Beauchemin||James Reimer|
|Clarke MacArthur||Luke Schenn|
|Mikhail Grabovski||Carl Gunnarsson|
|Colby Armstrong||Jeff Finger|
|Tyler Bozak||Brett Lebda|
|John Mitchell||Mike Komisarek|
|Fredrik Sjostrom||Matt Lashoff|
|Mike Brown||Danny Richmond|
Now that we've hit 30 players remaining on this list, I've combined all the numbers, so we kind of have a play-by-play how much each further cut takes away. Right now, I have this 30-player roster, plus one buyout and one cap overage penalty sitting at $66.3 million, which works out to be $6.9 million over the cap ceiling. If Finger was the first to go, he would take that down by $3.5 million and the cap hit would certainly be more manageable at $3.4 million over and seven more players to dispatch of.
