Leafs sign D Jonas Frogren; Other Leaf rumors
Morrison, Jagr probably not on Leafs radar
Derek Harmsworth of The Bleacher Report says the Maple Leafs have apparently agreed to terms with Swedish defenseman Jonas Frogren.
Additionally Frogren’s Swedish team Farjestad BK have posted an article on their website saying that Frogren has signed with the Leafs, and is following in the footsteps of Hall of Famer Borje Salming.Frogren, a 28-year-old, 6’1″ defenseman, is not an offensive threat, but is said to make that important first pass out of the zone, an absolute must if your team wants a good transition game.
Meanwhile it appears that Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher is not interested in Vancouver Canucks UFA Brendan Morrison, who would look pretty good on the Leafs second line.
Morrison has been injury-plagued recently, but he is still a solid performer, with his good skating and playmaking abilities.
Lastly, it appears the Jaromir-Jagr-to-Toronto rumor has dissipated somewhat. Last week it was reported the Leafs might be interested in signing Jagr if they can’t bring back Sundin (see final link below).
The future Hall of Famer had a poor season last year by his standards, but may still have something left in the tank.
Should the Leafs sign Jagr?
