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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
