Barbosa going home to Brazil ?
Globe & Mail sports reports Barbosa will opt out of his contract and return home to play in Brazil in a locked out season. His brother in Brazil is quoted as the source.
He may decide to go either way given the burgeoning economy in Brazil and long term endoresement potential.
Barbosa departure would reduce Toronto's salary sturture to $34MM plus rookie contracts verses last years salary at $69MM
$34MM would be $21M under the 'projects new hard cap' ?? ($55MM)
Pretty decent money to pick up a player or two
