Allison and Lindros In…Maybe? Antropov Out…Maybe?
The Leafs deal with Jason Allison is closing in according to Sportsnet and the Fourth Period. It was also mentioned in today’s Toronto Star and Sun. It will be laden with incentives reportedly.

The Big E may also be close to a deal with the Leafs. He too like Allison will get an incentive laden contract.
Those two would effectively take the place of Roberts and Nieuwendyk and Oneill was brought in to replace Nolan. Now the Leafs need a skilled guy to replaced Mogilny up front.
But while those two centres may end up in Toronto, big Nik Antropov may be on the way out. According to the Star he is receiving offers that are “three times” as much in Russia as what the Leafs are offering.

So who is left?
Kariya (but close to the Sharks maybe)
Zhamnov (to the Hawks…Again?)
