Leafs weigh trade options with cash to burn
Having put Joffrey Lupul, Stephane Robidas and Nathan Horton on long-term injured reserve at the beginning of the season, the Maple Leafs have more than $13 million in cap space to work with in the midst of a playoff race.
“We will just have to wait and see if there are any opportunities,” the typically tight-lipped GM said Sunday. “You make a call, you get a call. It’s nothing new. It’s that time of the year.”
While his team took off Sunday for a three-game trip to California, starting Tuesday in San Jose, Lamoriello remained in Toronto to deal with possible trades.
