Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
As Olympic hopeful Roberto Luongo makes his bid to once again don a red-and-white maple leaf on his chest, there was a time not so long ago when he was relatively certain he’d be wearing a blue and white one, as well.
Luongo isn’t too shy to admit it all these months later — he thought he was going to be a Toronto Maple Leaf.
Can the Maple Leafs afford to pay Dion Phaneuf $7 million US per season?
Can they afford not to?
At times during Toronto’s 4-1 win on Saturday night against Pittsburgh, James Reimer’s head was spinning around like Linda Blair’s in The Exorcist.
Trying to track the Penguins, most notably Sidney Crosby, Evegni Malkin and a few other creative forces, is hard on a goalie’s neck.
Trade rumours involving Gardiner have died down. At an average of 19 minutes 41 seconds a game, Gardiner is third in ice time among Leafs defencemen, behind Dion Phaneuf and Cody Franson.
One of the players the Maple Leafs have been eying from afar over the past couple of seasons is defenceman Dmitri Kulikov of the Florida Panthers, and Kulikov might just be more available now than he was because of the wreckage of Florida’s early season play.
