The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the best teams in the National Hockey League, and to ensure they are the best they can possibly be, they spend all the way to the Salary cap max each season.

While this does make your team better, usually, it does cause some issues when it comes to injuries and such, as there is no space for call-ups.
We saw the other night the Toronto Maple Leafs signed a goaltender to an Amateur Try Out due to them not having the cap space to call-up one of their American League goaltenders.
Tonight the Toronto Maple Leafs are playing the Florida Panthers, and with Matt Murray still out with injury, the Leafs tried to bring in Joseph Woll to be the backup, but the National Hockey League said no.
Still trying to figure out «exactly» why, but TOR was not ruled to be eligible for an emergency recall in tonight's game.

Okay, this is what I think it is: TOR could have called-up Woll instead of signing Knies, which makes it «an emergency of their own creation.» My bet is TOR considered signing Knies the priority, wanted to get him signed no matter what

With the Maple Leafs signing Matthew Knies yesterday and using the remaining salary cap space, the league considers this something they did to themselves and not an emergency.
