Maple Leafs' Busy Off-Season

Brad Treliving's first summer as the General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs has been productive. He has successfully signed notable players such as Ryan Reaves, John Klingberg, Tyler Bertuzzi, and Max Domi. However, the team still needs to offload approximately $8 million to comply with the salary cap for the upcoming season.
There are a few options they can consider.
One strategy involves placing Jake Muzzin on LTIR, buying out or trading Matt Murray's contract, and transferring a lower-cost player to the AHL.
But there are rumors suggesting that Treliving has something else in mind.

Treliving Interested in Another Top Free Agent

Even though several days have passed since the start of free agency, there are still talented players available. According to Sportsnet's Luke Fox, one of these players is Matt Dumba.
In his article, Fox links Dumba to the Maple Leafs.

The Toronto Maple Leafs took a run at making this work, according to Elliotte Friedman.

Although this information was shared before the signings of Bertuzzi and Domi, it seems plausible. If Dumba follows the same path as the Leafs' other new acquisitions, he could sign a relatively inexpensive one-year contract. This would allow him to keep his options open for the next season while having the opportunity to play with a top contender for the Stanley Cup.
Another option they have is trading Nylander, which would create enough cap space for the Leafs to acquire Dumba. This move would significantly strengthen their roster, making them one of the best teams in the NHL.
