Berg to leave leafs!

Finland’s state television network YLE reported on their website yesterday that Toronto Maple Leafs has confirmed rumours that Aki Berg won’t be returning to the NHL next season. He instead will return to Finland, where he might play for TPS.

With a now gaping hole in thier defence, should the leafs look to plug it by trade or fill in with a rookie from the farm team.

This news comes as a blow to the club, as they had plans to trade him early next season, with hopes of packaging him with a 3rd rounder in exchange for Todd Bertuzzi and Anson Carter, or according to rumors, perhaps Mike Modano and Marty Turco of the Dallas stars.

    Damn I was really looking forward to having Turco in net……. He will not be missed.

    The leafs should fill in that space with a rookie for sure, and they should definatly give that spot to coliaicovo, he has waited long enough to play.

    i hope the trades were a joke because there is no way they would have ever happened

    aki berg and a 3rd round pick for bertuzzi and carter or for modano and turko? where the hell did you get that from? no GM in their right mind would make those trades! and losing aki berg is a blow to the leafs! since when? Aki berg is not that good of a defender. its about time he leaves. they can easily bring up a young guy from the farm to fill his role, which wasnt that big anyway.

    I dont think that Colaiacovo is even skating yet. His injury seems quite serious.

    boy you guys are pretty thick sometimes. thats the joke. and yes, any GM to make that trade would be paving his own way out of town. don’t take things so seriously.
