Leafs Deadline Shopping List
The Toronto Maple Leafs are currently seeded in
ninth place in the Eastern Conference. They are only one point behind the Montreal Canadians for the eight and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
I have compiled a list of the Leafs’ meeds and will say who is availible.
1ST LINE WINGER: The Leafs need a winger to play with Mats Sundin. This guy is still capable of having a 35-goal, 80-point season.
The Wild look to be out of the playoff hunt and the
Leafs GM, John Ferguson Jr. has been rumored to be calling Minnesota. Possibly for Gaborik? The most recent rumor circling around is Wellwood,
Allison and a 1st round pick for Marian Gaborik.
The Boston Bruins are most likely to have a fire
sale if they are out of th playoff hunt by the March 9th trade deadline. One of the players rumored to be going is Glen Murray. After the departure of Joe
Thornton this guy has started to slump because he
doesn’t have a good center to play with. The Bruins are probably looking for porspects and draft picks.
The latest rumor is Kyle Wellwood, 2nd round pick
for Glen Murray.
TOP 3 DEFENSEMAN:
Brendan Witt has said he wants out of Washington.
The Leafs are in desperate need of a top 3 d-man.
Witt is a very capable d-man and will surely add
depth to the Leafs’ defensive unit. The latest rumors is Kronvall, 2nd round pick for Brendan
The St. Louis Blues definetly won’t make the playoffs this year and they have many bodies to
deal. Backman can add depth to any defense-core.
He would really help out the Leafs. Itt is rumored it would be Berg, Khavanov for Backman.
This guy brings so much leadership and skill to any defense-core what team wouldn’t want him.
With Scott Niedermayer out for 3 weeks the ducks may not make the playoffs. Leaving Carney availible. Ferguson hasn’t been in any known talks
with the Ducks yet, but that is excpected to hapeen soon.
