TORONTO - There are still waivers to be cleared, potential trades to be made and injuries to monitored.

But with the moves made by the Maple Leafs on Monday, at least the opening night lineup for Thursdays 2010-11 curtain-raiser against the rival Montreal Canadiens at the Air Canada Centre has become a little clearer.

Here is a look at how the Leafs roster shapes up after Mondays transactions.

Mondays Transactions

To AHL Marlies: F Luca Caputi; F Christian Hanson; F Nazem Kadri; G Jussi Rynnas.
