As if their roster isn’t already packed to the brim with middling talent, the Toronto Maple Leafs have three players signed to professional tryout offers (or PTOs) – Curtis Glencross, Brad Boyes and Devin Setoguchi.
All three have had varying degrees of success in the NHL, though Glencross and Boyes certainly have an edge. I could see either of them being useful players on the Leafs roster this season, and could turn out to be useful trade pieces come deadline day. That said, Toronto is very close to the 50-contract limit and none of these PTO players would offer any significant upgrade on what’s already there.
So what would you do?
Would you let all of Glencross, Boyes and Setoguchi walk? Or do you feel strongly enough about one of them that you’d make other moves to get them onto the roster? Would you trade anyone to make it work, or a depth player to at least make room for the contract?
Let us know in the comments below… Whoever gets a rise out of the most thumbs gets a PTO as well.
