Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
Not many expected Luongo to still be with the Canucks once the shortened season began, but you’ve got to give GM Mike Gillis credit for being patient in trying to drive up the price for the veteran goalie and not just giving him away.
While Cory Schneider is the starter for the Canucks, he’s one bad game or untimely goal away from giving way to Luongo. If that doesn’t happen, then sooner or later somebody will be desperate enough to give Gillis what he wants.
#leafs GM Dave Nonis: “There’s definitely a chance we’ll see Tim Connolly back here again.”

With all of the trade talk surrounding the Leafs and all of the transactions that they have done this week I thought that it would be fun to create a thread where all fans could get together to post on the newest rumors and moves that the Leafs could be about to make. Topics such as Luongo, Connoly and others are all open to discussion.
Tim Connoly has now been assigned to the Marlies. You would have to think that Nonis will try to move him and retain contract.

Hearing Rielly and Frattin will be the Leafs cuts today to get to 23-man roster. Practice starts at 11:30 so we’ll know for sure then.
