Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
This is just a thought NOT a rumor so take it as you wish.
First of all I’d like to say that I am satisfied with was has taken place this offseason in leafland.
The Leafs have about 1.8 million dollars left and they still have to sign Stajan. I wish we could get Carter too but I don’t think we will be. If we sign Stajan for 600,000 it’s possible that Carter would except for 1.2 million but I doubt it and we want flexibility room so I don’t think we will be getting Carter.
With the latest signings in Toront, there appears to be onespot left on the 23 man roster.
According to a press release from Mapleleafs.com, they have resigned BELL, COLAIACOVO, HARRISON AND NEWBURY.
Hockeybuzz.com is reporting that the Peca signing
could come as early as today! The Canadiens and
Islanders are still saying that “it could fall through.”
The leafs still have enough money to get Carter, Peca or Allison. Here is how they are set up.
According to Spectator’s trade rumours it appears that John Ferguson Jr. is done stacking his forwards lineup . He said in quote “the team does not have to add anymore fowards” and that “We could go with what we have,”
According to the Toronto Sun, The Leafs and Toronto born defensman Carlo Coliacovo have agreed to a one year deal worth approx. $905,000. The Sun also reports that JFJ does not expect any difficulty in re-signing the remaining RFA’s: Matt Stajan, Brendan Bell, Jay Harrison, Karel Pilar, and Kyle Wellwood.
I am tired of terrible management! The only good GM we’ve had since Punch Imlach was around is Pat Quinn! And he was forced to resign as GM before he could make the team perfect! We coulda won with Quinn leading the way in 2004, and now we have John Ferguson, and the team looks like it did in the Ballard days.
According to the Toronto Sun Anson Carter has fell off the leafs radar screen as a likely free agent aquisation. The Toronto Sun also reports negotiations between JFJ, Jason Allison, and Mike Peca are on-going.
According to TSN.CA, they state that the Maple Leafs have signed their 2006 1st round selection.
Its the bottom paragraph
According Howerd Berger of the Fan 590 – The leafs have offered Michael Peca a 3 year + 1 year player option. A little less money but more tenure. I would expect an announement Monday.
