Maple Leafs put defenceman Tim Gleason on waivers to buy him out

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed defenceman Tim Gleason on unconditional waivers for the purpose of buying him out.

Gleason will remain on the Leafs' salary cap for the next four seasons because this is an ordinary-course buyout.

Toronto already used its two compliance buyouts on Mike Komisarek and Mikhail Grabovski.

According to CapGeek, Gleason will cost US$833,333 against the cap next season, $1,833,333 in 2015-16 and then $1,333,333 in 2016-17.

The Leafs traded for Gleason on Jan. 1, sending John-Michael Liles to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
