Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors

RUMOURS DU JOUR

The Leafs have been sniffing around the NHL’s goalie market and have held talks with the Canucks regarding Roberto Luongo. While Vancouver has always coveted centre Tyler Bozak to help shore up the middle, it will be interesting to see if this deal can get done. Getting Luongo would help the Leafs stabilize their goaltending for the next six years.

Luongo to the Leafs still a possibility

 

Vancouver needs to bulk up at centre — and Roberto Luongo is the only ace up general manager’s sleeve

This brings us back to Luongo. Years of suspect drafting and trading picks, by this regime and the one that preceded it, has left the Canucks without a bankroll of prospects from which to purchase help at the deadline.

They can’t afford to trade Nicklas Jensen or Brendan Gaunce or Frank Corrado or this year’s first-round pick. Who they can afford to lose is Luongo.

Are the Leafs interested in Kipper?

 

What the Leafs, Caps and Jets teams could do at the Trade Deadline

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Leafs are in the market for a center and possibly a defensemen. It’s possible they won’t have to add on defense if Jake Gardiner proves he can stick around this time and make a difference. But the Leafs definitely are thin at center and could use help there, especially if they want to get back to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2004. One name being floated in Toronto is Mike Ribeiro, but it’s not clear what the Washington Capitals want to do with him. He is due to become an unrestricted free agent in July.

Are you surprised that Mike Komisarek cleared waivers with all of the teams looking for help on D.
