Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors

Did Roberto Luongo refuse earlier deal with Maple Leafs?

Did Roberto Luongo give the thumbs down on a potential trade to the Maple Leafs last summer?

So says Sportsnet’s Doug MacLean, who claims Luongo refused to waive his no-trade at the time in the hopes that a deal was in the works that would have reunited him with the Florida Panthers, the team he broke into the NHL with.

According to MacLean, a tentative off-season deal for Luongo was in place at the time between the Leafs and Canucks.

Rumblings: Could Kiprusoff go to Toronto?

Interesting news Monday evening with a source confirming to ESPN.com that the Calgary Flames have given permission to the Toronto Maple Leafs to speak to Miikka Kiprusoff’s camp about a contract extension.

My TSN colleague Aaron Ward was first to report the news.

Kiprusoff has one more year on his deal next season, which pays only $1.5 million (although it counts $5.8 million against the salary cap), and the suspicion here is that the 36-year-old netminder would sign off on a trade to Toronto only if he can get another year out of it financially.

Leafs interested in Keith Yandle, Dmitri Kulikov and Jay Bouwmeester

Meanwhile the Leafs reportedly continue to look at bolstering their top four on the blue line. Names such as Keith Yandle, Dmitri Kulikov and Jay Bouwmeester have been linked to the Leafs in various web reports. Bouwmeester’s $6.6 million US ticket through 2014 seems a bit pricy.
