Looking to improve on a moderately successful 2012-13, the Toronto Maple Leafs have made a few significant changes this offseason. While jettisoning forwards Mikhail Grabovski (compliance buyout), Matt Frattin (trade), Clarke MacArthur (free agency), Leo Komarov (free agency), goalie Ben Scrivens (trade), blueliner Mike Kostka (free agency), and rarely used defenseman Mike Komisarek (compliance buyout), the Maple Leafs added forwards David Clarkson (free agency), Dave Bolland (trade), and goalie Jonathan Bernier (trade). With less than $5 million in salary cap space (as per Capgeek.com) and a couple of key restricted free agents still to re-sign, the club isn't likely to make any other major additions ahead of opening night (Oct. 1). As side dish to Hockey Prospectus' preview, here's what Toronto's squad looks like three weeks ahead of training camp.
