Leafs Acquire May


Brian Burke and the Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired Brad May from the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional 6th round pick.

The team also sent down Nikolai Kulemin to the Marlies to make room.

May is very familiar with Burke having been acquired for now the 3rd time by Burke. He will add some leadership, toughness and character to the team.

It was a no brainer Burke would pursue a player who play a physical game and willing to drop the gloves. While trading yet another draft pick seems to make little sense, it can only be assumed that this hole in the roster had to be filled by any means.
