Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
Now that the Leafs have almost set their line-up for the 2006-07 season, who won’t make the team and what would the lines look like? I’m going to set a line combination with possible signings (ex. Roberts, Lindros, Peca). I’m interested to hear all of your feedback and your own ideas.
The Leafs are very close to the salary cap limit thanks mostly to their top 4 defensemen. Did they over pay for Mccabe, Kubina and Gill? Yes, they did but the Leafs are building from net out. I prefer this year’s roster with Kubina, Gill and Raycroff over last year’s roster with Berg, Khamonov and Belfour.
Restricted free agent forward Nik Antropov has agreed to a one-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Terms have not been released.
Howard Berger of the Fan 590 reported today that over the last 24 hours he has heard that the Leafs have been pursuing UFA Mike Peca.
Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president Richard Peddie said yesterday that there could be a future for Tie Domi in the organization if he chooses not to continue playing next season.
According to TSN there has been no developement on Roberts request to go to Toronto.
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.
TSN.ca is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed goalie, Andrew Raycroft, to a three-year/six million dollar contract!
According to thefourthperiod.com, Florida Panthers winger Gary Roberts plans to be in Toronto next season, whether or not the team trades him.
After the signings of Pavel Kubina and Hal Gill the
Leafs are in quite a pickle, here is my solution:
after 2 big signings, the leafs may not have eough cap room, to improve their offence.
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.
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:
