    We clinch division and conference, but unfortunately do not win the President's Trophy as we were 1 point away from Montreal, the team who beat us in the final game of the season. Nonetheless good season.

    Such a joke, 8 of the Blues 14 goals came from Tarasenko. 1 man team, our lack of winning home games, and the disappearance of all our stars was the reason we lost this series. We'll come back next year stronger.

    Meloche had an ugly contract and with many key players we need to sign this offseason, we had to move him.

    Toronto Receives:

    T. Morrisonn (82 Overall Med. Top 6 C)

    Houston Receives:

    Toronto Maple Leafs 2nd Round Pick (2029)

    Our cap situation is pretty horrible, so as much as I don't want to move guys like Morrisonn, I have to. His contract was pricy for a 3rd liner, and we had to move some cap space to sign more valuable guys. We do have some younger replacements for him though, so we should be fine.

    2028 Free Agency:

    Notable Resignings:

    Xavier Hunter
    Will Callahan
    Tyson Jost
    Stanislav Turakov

    Notable Releases:

    None

    Free Agent Signings:

    None

    Our cap situation has turned from good to bad quick. Many of our players have expiring contracts within 1 or 2 years, and they are going to want a lot more then they had before. Our depth is going to be rutted most likely.
