Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors

Roberts deal going nowhere, Carter to leafs instead?

According to TSN there has been no developement on Roberts request to go to Toronto.

Odd salary numbers

I recently noticed some odd payroll numbers with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The NHLPA site and TSN both report Mats Sundin’s salary for 06/07 as $7.6 million and Bryan McCabe’ as $7.15 million.

Raycroft Signs 3-year Deal!

TSN.ca is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed goalie, Andrew Raycroft, to a three-year/six million dollar contract!

Roberts will be in Toronto, either way

According to thefourthperiod.com, Florida Panthers winger Gary Roberts plans to be in Toronto next season, whether or not the team trades him.

Possible Solution For Leafs

After the signings of Pavel Kubina and Hal Gill the

Leafs are in quite a pickle, here is my solution:

Numbers on Toronto

after 2 big signings, the leafs may not have eough cap room, to improve their offence.

So what's next for JFJ

Last year, I was not upset at any Leafs moves (except maybe not buying out Belfour). Frankly, it was a transition year, and I knew it would be painful. JFJ went out there and took some risks to try to ice a competitive team. For the most part he succeeded.

Tellqvist and Tucker Offered In Deal?

Hockeybuzz.com is reporting that the Leafs offered

Darcy Tucker and Mikael Tellqvist to the Oilers in

exchange for Chris Pronger, here is the link:

Domi bought out

I think it’s appropriate I write the final Tie Domi article on HTR, as I am one of his few remaining supporters, and he’s always been my favorite player.

Leafs can't afford a big name!

The perception has been, for a while now, that the Leafs have a lot of money to spend on Free Agents. Unless, they manage to unload some contracts somewhere, this is simply not true. Some of my numbers or guesses may be slightly off, but the overall picture is pretty much what I am laying out here. The most up to date look at the numbers are as follows:

What can the Leafs afford really?

Allison returning to Toronto?

Jason Allison’s time with the Toronto Maple Leafs may not be over.

So how does McCabe stack up?

Some people here feel McCabe is a tier 1 D-man, others say he is tier 2. Most people feel the money he is getting paid is excessive.

So, how does he stack up statistcally against the other “top tier” D-men over the last 3 years…

Leafs Defence core

With McCabe signed on it seems very unlikely that the pronger door will open, but thats not to say that the leafs defence core wont get a free agent boost.

The Curse of LEAFdom and the Bad Sports Writer!

LEAF fans should wary about the information circulating in their Hometown.

Note: I nearly died of a stroke when I read the article in question.

Pohl hits the Net!

AS of 1:22PM I heard an Interview of John Ferguson Jr. on AM 640 LEafs Lunch.

JFJ has signed John Pohl to a two year, ONE WAY, contract. Money was undisclosed.

Pronger is the key if used in the right door…

With rumours heating up regarding Chris Pronger, I thought I would take some time to share my view on the situation. I read that Tomas Kaberle is furious that the Leafs would incorporate his name in trade rumours. Frankly, so am I. We have taken years to develop a player (Kaberle) that was drafted in the 8th round, 204th overall. How many players can the Leafs say they chose that late in the draft and are all-star caliber today. Not too many.

pronger deal taken the wrong way

there is a very good message on this link about the pronger situation.

A better , Possible Future For The Leafs

Ok I’m no expert but the leafs need to make a few changes, not only changes but changes that make sence. Here are a few things that the leafs should do which are actually possible.

Just a Thought

What do leafs need after gettin Raycroft…

If you look at the free agent market.. theres number of players tht are available which leafs can pick up..
