Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
There has been a lot of articles posted as to what the Leafs should do (sorry to all you non Leaf fans who get very angry at the number of Leaf postings that appear) and without any further adu here is my 2 cents.
It has been reported by TSN that former Leafs starting goalie Curtis Joseph ( Cujo) would like to come back to the Leafs, possibly to mentor the younger goalies.
John Ferguson J. announced Wednesday that the leafs have signed Jeremy Williams and Derrik Walser to two year contracts. And Alex Foster to a one year contract.
Ok, lots of people seem to think this guy is less then he is… I’m gonna go through a quick analysis of my own… hopefully some of you will see this guy the way I do.
Now that players suggested the last time I wrote and article have been dealt and or acquired, I think there is a very competitive and different approach the leafs could take.
Let’s look at the Leafs current roster, and its weak points and strong points.
Eukland in Hockeybuzz.com is reporting that a trade between Colorado & Toronto is in work where the leafs will land Milan Hejduk.
Personally i think the leafs are in a pretty good situation right now. but if they were to make some changes it would definitly be…..
The Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday signed right wing David Ling to a one-year contract.
Raycroft to Phoenix, just for a pick? Way to little, they should wait for this year and see how the tandem do together.
Over the past week and a bit there has been alot of speculation that the Leafs are going to move goaltender Andrew Raycroft known in Toronto as Razor.
Now Raycroft will most likely go to Phoenix if he does get traded i would want a trade like this.
The Leafs have got a good core of forwards this year, pretty good on defence and the jury is out on a goalie but as of now he looks pretty damn good. It is hard to do lines for this year because of Yashin and Peca and all that so I will do it with and without them.
According to hockeybuzz.com, Eklund said that the Leafs are trying really hard to trade Raycroft to make more cap space to sign Yashin. If Raycroft does leave the Leafs, it will be most likely to Phoenix.
more to come later.
For about a week now .. reports say the Leafs are trying desperatly to move Andrew Raycroft to shed some cap space to add depth, maybe Alexi Yashin however the team that i keep hearing and the only logical choice would be Phoenix simply because of there need of a starting goaltender. In my opinion i dont see JFJ trying to move Raycroft because i believe he likes the tandom of Toskala/Raycroft and might want them to do a 40/40 situation or a 50/30 situation. But rumors be true Rayzor could be heading to Phenoix .. Who do you think the Leafs will try to get in return?? I think if the rumors are infact true the Leafs will be asking for a lot in return simply because they gave up Rask for this guy and the Leafs will expect a decent prospect in return along with pics. a deal could look something like this:
As a leafs fan I always seem to find myself thinking, what’s the next move for the leafs? But today I ask, what’s wrong with the way they are?
This team would be near the top of this sport on a yearly basis except for everyone above John Ferguson Jr. Believe me I am not a supporter of JFJ. Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment is what is destroying this team and people have to wake up and see this.
According to sportsnet, Muckler is going to meet with the Leafs
Are the Leafs even better off than last season? Are they going anywhere this year? Did they make the right move? Well if you want to know what I think read on…
Now that Vesa Toskala has signed a new contract that will pay him 4 million dollars a year, double Andew Raycroft’s current salary, its pretty clear that JFJ declares Vesa has Toronto’s new number one.
After a few years of hatred from the fans and criticism form reporters and analysts, I feel that John Ferguson Jr. has earned himself a contract extension for a few years, as he has finally found a direction for this team to go in and has learned form his mistakes.
