Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
Simple facts are these. Leafs have talked to VAN this week about Luongo. Leafs have some interest. Price has dropped. That’s all for now.

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.
Don’t confuse interest with current trade talks or offers. Toronto would like to add a vet goalie. IF Kipper is avail, calls will be made.

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.
Bill Watters says on the NiteCap that he still believes that Roberto Luongo is still going to be a Maple Leaf.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed Mike Komisarek on waivers.
Nonis on trade deadline: “We’re going to be in the mix with a bunch of teams.” Buyer or seller? “Possibility of both.”

For Randy Carlyle, the problems facing Mikhail Grabovski can’t be measured in numbers.
The struggling Maple Leafs centre found himself on the third line on Monday at practice, and though that could change before the Leafs entertain the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday, it’s clear that Grabovski has some work to do to unleash himself from Carlyle’s doghouse.
And the quickest way for Grabovski to do that? Start putting forth a better effort.
