Leafs Trade Rumours

There are many trade rumors surrounding the TML lately, and these are the options that they should take
1. Trade Pavel Kubina-
This makes sense because he was very little help to the team in regards to offence and took up $5 million dollars in salary cap. Its possible that Los Angeles is Interested in Kubina. In exchange, we could ask for some draft picks because they will finish next season low on the standings and with high draft picks.
2. Trade Andrew Raycroft- Again, this makes perfect sense because of the dissappointing performance in the 06/07 season. And with Pogge and Clemmenson ready to back up Toskala, I don’t see why Raycroft’s $2 million dollar contract is useful to us. Teams like Los Angeles again, or Colorado may be interested in Raycroft.
3.Trade Coliacavo and/or Ian white- Toronto has developed deep defensive depth by having young defensemen prospects in their lineup. They come at a cheap price, so it might be possible that teams like the Rangers, NJ or Colorado might have an interest.

Note that i used the word MIGHT in this article, and these are trade rumours, so bash me all you want.

    I really like your first two points but they are going to be very unlikely, however raycroft may be moved, cujo was spotted at a jays game, and that man has class. he also wants to come back to toronto as that was where he played some of his best days. He would be the perfect fit for our team, as he could still very much split time with toskala and help out pogge. Kubina won't get moved this year maybe at the trade deadline, but not any time soon. We are going to have to suck it up and realize that this is pretty much what the team is going to look like. And who knows maybe that was just a fluke bad year for McCabe, because he couldn't live up to his former year, he might bounce back, just like the leafs to the playoffs. Gimme feed back ppl

    Trade Pavel Kubina? For high class draft picks next year would be PERFECT! Strongest draft in years.

    Andrew Raycroft should be traded for a pick or two. Who cares if it looks bad for Rask. Deal with the loss and move on.

    Trade Coliacavo and or Ian White? Nah…Only if were getting a Marleau or a Hejduk.

    Overall : They still have moves to make, and if they don't I can't see the team finishing better than 7th.

    no, no, and… no
    Kubina was a defenseman… he was there for… defense… not scoring goals… he was the most versatile of our defensemen and had a bad start to the year… now that he knows our system, he'll do better
    Raycroft played waaayyyyyy to many games, and if anything happens to Toskala(knowing the Leaf's luck, it will) neither Clemmensen or Pogge will be ready to fill in for prolonged periods of time… 2 #1 goalies that are both looking at the situation positively will make for great goaltending this year
    Colaiacovo/White… are you mad? why must we trade away the guys we developed?  they're future top pairing D-men, moving them makes no sense

    and yes I realize these are just rumors… and not your doing… but if these are the options JFJ is weighing… we're screwed.

    IMO, the person that needs moving is McCabe… he knows how to hit(didn't show it last year though) he can move and has that killer shot… but of all the leaf's defensemen he is the least defensive… and its not like the Leafs have any trouble with the offensive part of the game… plus this frees up room for Kronwall or Stralman to break the lineup and show what they are made of… and moving McCabe also clears up cap space for a guy like Peca, who will help our D much more then McCabe can. I'm sure if we keep him McCabe will rebound and have a better year… but the fact of the matter is, we don't exactly need him anymore… especially since we have 4 other defensemen that have offensive talent

    There is a rumour that the Leafs are going after Marleau. Eklund reported it so a really dont know what to believe. Heree is the link. http://www.hockeybuzz.com/

  5. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    i read that, its a load of bull. the Sharks are cup contenders, Marleau will only be traded if it improves the sharks.

  6. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    1. Lombardi hasn't traded a prospect or pick EVER, he only trades for them, and the kings will do better than you think this year.

    2. only if you can get something for him, which i'm not convinced you can right now.

    3. NO!!!!

  7. the_word says:

    1. LA already has Blake, they don't need Kubina or his contract. A lottery team won't be trading picks for anyone let alone Kubina.

    2. Trade Raycorft for anything, just to shed his salary. Forget about value and forget about Rask (he's gone people, get over it), do whats best for the team and dump his salary.

    3. Keep Coli, he's already a top four with the Leafs and he's locked up for a few year at a bargain price of 1 million. White is expendable but he doesn't really have much value in the trade market. You'd have to package White.

  8. m4gician says:

    Leafs are trying to sit down and resign Mike Peca according to the Toronto star. Eklund knows nothing.

  9. Stefcho93 says:

    OK THIS IS WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN

    LEAFS ARE GOING TO TRADE PAVEL KUBINA AND 2 DRAFT PICKS TO SAN JOSE FOR PATRICK MARLEAU OR TO COLORADO FOR HEJDUK/SVATOS

    RAYCROFT IS GOING TO LA AND RETURN TORONTO WILL GET AND OK DEFENSEMAN AND A HIGH DRAFT PICK/PROSPECT

    LEAFS THEN SIGN CUJO AND PECA

    AND THERE IT IS…A STANLEY CUP COMPETITOR

    I'm hoping that was sarcasm, reply, and then if you say it wasn't i'll give you reasons why it is ridiculous.

    this is what I have read from hockeybuzz.com:

    According to three seperate sources, all with most of the same names involved, there is a RUMOUR of a three-way trade with Boston, San Jose in Toronto. I am hearing some picks and prospects may be involved and the general consensus on the key players are Marleau, Kubina, Glen Murray, Axelson, and Grier, Colaiacovo, and Devereaux.

    There have been many reports that the Leafs and Peca have started up intense talks.

    As for the Leafs attempt to make cap space, the one name that has surfaced as tradeable is Stajan. The source I talked to said that three teams (Vancouver, Dallas, and Minnesota) are rumoured to be interested in Stajan.

    Raycroft to LA.
