Dubas Says Door Is Open To Possibly Re-Sign JVR, Bozak And Komarov

"With NHL free agency just around the corner, many expect that the Toronto Maple Leafs will let James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak and Leo Komarov will find themselves on new teams next season. While Komarov wouldn't cost too much to bring back, JVR and Bozak are expected to attract major interest on the free agent market and land big pay days. Speaking to the media recently, Dubas said the possibility of bring them all back is still being evaluated. "The door is always open," Dubas said Saturday, according to Sportsnet. "We're evaluating where things are."
Dubas also mentioned that thanks to the Toronto Marlies Calder Cup win, the team proved there's plenty of talent around waiting in the wings and Dubas doesn't have to make any huge moves this summer. "I don't think I have to do anything big, just to do so," Dubas said. "That would be a disservice to the organization, frankly. It's not about me. It's about the players and the coaches.
"If what people describe as a 'big splash' happens to make our team a lot better then we'll do it, but it's not something that important to me at all."
