As the speculations surrounding Matt Murray's future are swirling, a new hint has been revealed, confirming that the goalie and the Leafs may part ways this summer.

Murray's Gesture



Matt Murray did something a bit childish that reveals his intentions for next season.

He unfollowed the Leafs on Instagram. Would you unfollow your own team? This is a pretty good clue that he will be traded or bought out by Treliving.


"Murray unfollowed the Leafs on IG; it looks like a breakup is on the horizon.

A buyout would free just over $1.3M for the Sens, I believe, reducing the amount on the books for 23-24 from $1.56M to $229k if the Leafs can't find a trade partner."

Trade or Buyout?



As you can see, the impacts of a buyout on the Senators, Murray's former team, would be immense. They already don't have a lot of cap space, but it could be worse. If the Leafs don't find a trade partner, Ottawa will only have $229k available for next season.


Treliving will need to make a strategic decision here. He will likely try to trade him, but don't be surprised if he buys out Murray in the event a trade doesn't work.

What do you think will happen?
