Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors

Kulikov to Leafs trade rumors eminated from Toronto Sun

Rumors from sportsnet.ca

The Toronto Maple Leafs failed to trade John-Michael Liles last season, then opted to use their compliance buyouts on Mikhail Grabovski and Mike Komisarek instead. Word is, the Leafs might be willing to assume some of Liles’ salary if they can move the veteran, now biding time with the Toronto Marlies. Nonis now has no other option, save letting Liles toil away in the AHL until the 2015-16 season concludes. Liles may not be top-four material anymore, but he’s good enough to play in the NHL still.

Could the Leafs and Oilers swing a deal at some point?

Nonis said he hasn’t considered trading Jake Gardiner and doesn’t believe in trading young defencemen. “How many teams have made mistakes trading a young defencemen too soon?”

In other news, the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to get calls on the availability of defenceman Jake Gardiner.

Kadri already in Carlyle’s doghouse

With another workday nearly done at Wednesday’s Leafs practice, Nazem Kadri made like a short-order cook. Using the blade of his stick like a spatula, he picked up a puck and repeatedly heaved it high into the air.

The disc went up. The disc came down. And Kadri, though he attempted to catch it like an artfully tossed fried egg, never could manage the trick.
