Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
Karel Pilar has just signed a contract with the Marlies with hopes of joining the Leafs.
Karel was once Toronto’s best prospect. He had similar skating and puck handling skills as Thomas Kaberle. A future full of promise was disturbed by a mysterious virus that caused heart complications.
Ok, I would like to say, WOW! A lot of good trades today on Tues .Feb. 27 Trade Deadline Day. I know a lot is happening today, but I have to ask, what do you think the Leaf’ Lines will be, on the return of Wellwood, Tucker, Kubina, Peca, and the 3rd time Leafs, Perreult?
The Toronto Maple Leafs are right on the edge of a playoff berth, and on the outside looking in. With the playoffs looking more and more unlikely for the team is Toronto looking to keep their captain and team leader Mats Sundin or trade him and realize it is time to start looking ahead to the future?
According to the Toronto Star, the Toronto Maple Leafs and forward Darcy Tucker are close to a new multi-year deal
If the leafs need anything right now its a scoring winger, and a shoot-out artist, a list of trade options would be: Brendan Bell, Staffan Kronwall, Andy Wozniewski, every draft pick except the 1st rounder, Wade Belak, Travis Green, Kris Newbury, Aleksander Suglobov, and perhaps J-S Aubin
- The Toronto Star has the Leafs in the market for a forward before the deadline, naming Colorado’s Marek Svatos, Boston’s Marco Sturm and St. Louis’ Jamal Mayers as possibilities. Defencemen Brendan Bell, Andy Wozniewski and Staffan Kronwall would be the Leafs’ first trade options, according to the paper.
This rumor is actually real. I expect the following deal to go down within the next 5-6 days.
A few things:
In the most important game of the Year, the Leafs appeared to have the insurance goal that would give them the win over the Isles… but wait… incidental contact?
Lindy Ruff… You need a bottle, and a rattle, and your mommy, you crybaby!
Yes I know it seems like the last thing Detroit would do would be to part with one of their young offencive stars but a trade with Toronto would make perfect sense. The trade would look something like this.
With the exception of this last year’s draft, the leafs are arguably the WORST team for drafts i will give you a list of who the leafs COULD of had, they let them slide through their wretched fingers, please do no get upset at me if this list is distrubing, the leafs had:
Mike Peca says he’ll be on skates within three weeks and should be ready to return to the lineup before the Leafs end the regular season.
What is the deal people? We are less than 10 days away from the trade deadline and where are the rumors? I’ll tell you what, pay Eklund 20 bucks and see if he can make some up for you.
Where are all the legitimate rumors, everybody seems to be making stuff up these days and some are profiting off of it. But I digress…
For thirty years Dave Keon avoided the Maple Leafs like the plague, and for a while, he was right to do so.
So As well as Raycroft (and the buds as a whole) has been playing of late
(11-5-?)I am worried that if the plan is to ride that wave into the playoff’s is he going to have the gas in the tank to push through some gruelling playoff rounds for us? He’s played 19 in a row and played only 25 all of last year! How is his game conditioning?
In my opinion I think JFJ should trade Andrew Raycroft. He’s not set to be a number 1 goalie. He’s too leisurely in net. I think a good trade would be Raycroft for goaltender Ray Emery and maybe a number 2 or 3 draft pick. I hate the Senators just as much as the next Leaf fan, but emery is only getting better. I also think he can carry a team in the playoffs.
Hard to believe after all these years playing in the Toronto market this guy, I think, is still not getting the respect he deserves. It became very clear after watching last nights game against the Islanders this guy is on a mission and is one of the best in the league. He is the face of the Leafs and without him they have no identity. Yes he is in the twilight of his career but he is still in great shape and is out-performing his teamates and most players in the NHL.
Ok Leaf fans,
We have to come to accept the possibility that John Ferguson may NOT pull the trigger this year.
With the Leafs recent play its very probable that the Leafs may make the playoffs but may not have what it takes to go all the way.
I was listening to Hockey Central last week and Kipper and Millard were saying it would be possible to fit both these guys under the cap if Wellwood and Tucker were put on long term IR in a Lamorello’esk move. This got me thinking.
