The Canadiens having traded Jose Theodore have some cap room to work with but they also have several key players to re-sign.
Well, God’s Team ain’t making the playoffs and it has become clear that the Leafs have only one way to go about things now… rebuild.

Ussually the Masterton trophy is fought out by injury riddled stars such as Mario Lemieux, Bryan Berard, Steve Yzerman, Saku Koivu, Joe Nieuwendyk, and Eric Lindros, but this year, someone who was healthy most of his career, should easily take home the award.
