Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
This is my second post here. I had no choice but to leave my opinion about Maple Leaf Fans.
First of, I am a Die Hart Leaf fan my self, It make me sick to read comment from people who have no idea about hockey, complaining about What Brian Burk should do, How much they hate Brian Burk because what he said on his interviews.
Dominic Moore will likely be moved by the trade deadline. It has been said Moore’s agent and Burke were disputing over Moore’s salary. It has been rumoured Moore asked for $2.75 million a year for 2 or 3 years.
Its less than two days from the trade deadline and have seen quite a few players gone so far.
- thrashers trade D Schneider to montreal for 2nd and 3rd round draft picks
- islanders trade F Mike Comrie & D Chris Campoli to Senators for F Dean McAmmond and a 1st round draft pick.
- Montreal trade F Steve Begin to Dallas for D Doug Janik
- Anaheim trade F Chris Kunitz and prospect F Eric Tangradi to Pittsburgh for D Ryan Whitney
- today*- Atlanta trade D Niklas Havelid to New Jersey for D Anssi Salmela
I have an idea for the Leafs. We all know the rumours about Columbus wanting Nikolai Antropov, and how Brian Burke wants a first rounder for him. Then there is Tomas Kaberle. He may very well be on his way out of Toronto this Wednesday. I though of a deal sending Antropov and Kaberle to Columbus.
I’ve posted this trade in a previous comment, and I recieved some positive feedback.
If anyone was listening into the FAN 590 today, Bob McKenzie has stated that Brian Burke is starting to take offers on propsects Jiri Tlusty, Anton Stralman, and current Leaf players Nik Antropov and Alexei Ponikarovsky.
If Burke and the Leafs are looking to trade with Kabarle then Calgary could be a possable partner. A trade that could work between the two clubs:
TOR= Greg Nemisz, 09′ 1st round pick, Eric Nystrom type player
During the broadcast of an nhl game on tsn, Pierre Mcguire stated that burke has made it known that another gm offered him a lottery pick in this years draft for defenceman Luke Schenn,
Burke turned down this trade and i am willing to bet that the gm was Brian Lawton of the lightning. The lightning are in desperate need of defence and i cannot see Burke turning down this deal from Atlanta or New York who are in position to pick Victor Hedman and John Tavaras.
TheStar.com is reporting that Thomas Kaberle is now likely to stay with the Leafs and not be moved after all despite the fact that he has provided Burke with his list of his preferred destinations.
Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun is reporting that Dominic Moore’s play has improved so much this season that he may now be n the trade block.
This is my first post on htr and i wanted to address possible deadline scenarios for Toronto. Here are a few possible trades that could benefit the leafs in my opinion, Please comment!
