It’s coming down to it now. The Toronto Maple Leafs could keep Dave Bolland tomorrow when the NHL free agency period officially kicks off, or they could lose him.
Although there doesn’t seem to be a clear indication as to what could happen with the veteran center at this point. That was echoed somewhat by Leafs general manager Dave Nonis over the weekend in Philadelphia.
The two sides have been going back and forth in recent weeks, but one of the last updates there was stated the two sides were far apart in their negotiations.
Bolland, 28, is headed for unrestricted free agency.
The Leafs, it appears, will also officially part ways with left winger Nikolai Kulemin, who is also about to become an unrestricted free agent and wasn’t very happy with his role with the Leafs the past season.
While those two players could leave – one of them, it seems, is assured to go on the market – the Leafs have reportedly been talking to another pending UFA in Tanner Glass.
