Robitaille On His Way Out???……..To The Leafs!?
Left winger Luc Robitaille was a healthy scratch for Thursday’s game against the Avalanche. And has left the question: Are Lucky Luc’s days in Hockeytown numbered?
Robitaille, 36, last scored a goal 14 games ago, on Dec. 17 against the New York Islanders.
He has four goals and 14 assists in 45 games, on course for the worst season of his career.
“We tried a lot of different things,” Lewis said. “Luc is a goal scorer and it (the puck) hasn’t been going in. At this time, it was necessary for the team that we make a change.”
“He was very disappointed, as any proud professional would be, and he is,” Lewis said. “Nobody wants to not play.”
Lewis said it was the most difficult decision he has had to make this season.
“Definitely,” Lewis said. “For a man of his stature, for what he’s done in this game, to do that (scratch), I thought about it all last night.”
In other news in was reported recently that the Leafs have had discussions with the Wings in regard to the services of Robitaille.
Bill Watters(assistant GM) would not confirm nor deny trade talks with the Wings. Although Robitaille is the LW the Leafs do lack…
This rumor does NOT appear to be false at all, yet it is very serious when you add the economics and value together.
I will keep a very close eye on the situation and I suggest you do the same, as this trade could be completed….
