Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
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.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have not made the playoffs for the last two years. In my oppinion i think the Leafs dont need offensive but really defensive.
A lot of Leaf fans have been upset on how management has handled off-season moves. Numerous of teams have spent big cash and long term contracts to acquire talent. However, there may be a silver lining for the Leafs due to the off season moves. Players like McCabe or Kubina who we thought could not be traded at one point, have potential to be traded. How is this reality? Here are some examples
With all the talk of the Leafs throwing money around like drunken sailors hitting port for the first time in six months I just want to try and throw a little tidbit for you to ponder.
The Toronto Sun is reporting that the Leafs are set to enter he bidding wars for key free agents tomorrow now that the salary cap is at the 50 million dollar mark.
