Leafs sign David Ling

   The Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday signed right wing David Ling to a one-year contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed. Ling, 32, played last season with Moscow Dynamo in the Russian Super League. In 42 games he collected 10 goals and 16 assists for 26 points, and added 91 penalty minutes. Ling has played in 93 career NHL games with the Montreal Canadians and the Columbus Blue Jackets, recording four goals and eight points, along with 191 penalty minutes.

This will be Ling’s second tour of duty with the Maple Leafs organization. During the 2004-05 season, he led St. John’s, the Maple Leafs’ former AHL affiliate, in scoring with 88 points on 28 goals and 60 assists, along with 152 penalty minutes.

  3. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    obviously JFJ is revampint the marlies offense that was crap last year

  4. GoalJudge says:

    and whoopty-doo!!!

    A guy to lead the MARLIES.
    That will get the fires going.

    CLASS A signing by FERGIE JR.  Better than the Crosby deal.

    I can hardly contain myself.  More roster space for player development wasted.  Y-E-S!!!

  5. Motherpucker says:

    This is what Leaf fans call "a depth move."  Ling's only claim to fame is fracturing the cheekbone of Derek Morris a few years ago in a lopsided fisticuffs affair.

    Mike Bolt should start preparations immediately for the Maple Leaf Cup celebration next summer.

    sorry, I will never again assume that sarcasm is self evident.

    That Guy Is Still ALIVE ?!?
    Geeezz…clearly a depth signing, probably for you AHL club.

    Now, I'm not one to bash the Leafs or their fans, but I better not see anyone saying that the Maple Leafs have a good prospect in David Ling !!! 🙂

  13. leafscrazy says:

    I almost fell off my chair at the news! I so wanted to put on my Leafs jersey and rejoice but I couldn't find it – I think that the moths got it. Nevertheless, the Baby Duck is on me.

  15. LeafsLegacy says:

    Obvious this move is strickly for the marlies, cap hit doesn't affect ours!

  16. Hoondog2 says:

    Whats everyone so uptight about?  No, he isn't gonna win us the cup.  No, nobody thinks he is a good prospect.  No, he isn't Sundin sought after winger, so people quit acting like f*u*c*k*i*n*g idiots, he is merely an AHL experienced, depth signing who will protect our unexperienced prospects from the experienced AHL goons.

    sarcasm is a foreign language to you huh?

  18. dustintml says:

    Leafs closing in on Milan Hejduk. More coming soon.

  19. TimmyHoHo says:

    You are retarded.  I guess they will pick up Doan, Crosby and all three Staals too!

    You were the only one with enough crap to match this pointless article…
    Go run in some traffic.

    I just wanna ask what everyone else is thinking, when will the leafs jersey featuring David Ling hit stores? He's number 99 right? O and also, will it be cheaper than a roll of toilet paper? Thanks

    The other night I stepped outside and someone said, "something amazing has happened" but when I turned around no one was there. Then out of nowhere I heard this amazing choir singing, this was their song

    O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
    It is the night of the dear Savior’s signing
    Long lay the team in problems and error pining,
    Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
    A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
    For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
    Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
    O night divine, O night when Ling was signed
    O night, O holy night, O night divine!

    ok, Ling has had a 60+ GOALS in one season.

    he could be a good fill in guy when someone gets injured


  23. Glucker says:

    I would rather sign Ling up to League max, and throw him on the first line then get Yashin for minimum and play him in the minors

  24. Glucker says:

    alright, thats it… I'm standing up… now I'm clapping… well done sir… well done
