According to the Toronto Sun:
Karel Pilar is working out with the Maple Leafs on their five-game road trip despite being unsigned, according to the Toronto Sun. “One of these days there will be a try (with Pilar),” coach Pat Quinn said. “We still have to sign him. Two years ago we thought he was close to playing on a regular basis. We still have that decision in front of us. He has had medical clearance. What he’s looking to do is build up his physical strength.”
I know I haven’t been the most consistent contributor to this site in recent months, but the witching hour is almost upon us, and my return from the underworld is long past due. It has been, to say the least, an interesting first couple of weeks to this NHL season. Some happenings border on the bizzare, so what better time to discuss than now?
Rumors/speculation/news on the future of extra goaltender Curtis Joseph have been incredibly sparse, leading one to believe that no one is interested in the $16-million man or that something is brewing in Ken Hollands office.

TSN.ca is reporting that holdout Marian Gaborik and the Minnesota Wild are “far apart” in contract talks and “not even close”.
This is coming just days after the rumor that a deal will be struck within 48 hours.
Also, the Wild have signed Pascal Dupuis yesterday to a three year, 2.5 million dollar contract.
