Stajan or Antropov could go
According to Spector’s trade rumors, and “Leafs Lunch” JFJ is attempting to clear some cap space, with the most likely candidates being Antropov or Stajan.
The specific rumor was Antropov to Detroit but no word on what they’d get in return. (either picks or prospects).
It’s hard to tell how realistic this is, with neither of these players exactly highly profile forwards, though both have their own upsides. Antropov COULD perform better with a change of scenery, coaching, new linemates…. while Stajan is a fairly decent two-way player for his price, and is more expendable with the arrival of peca.
This could be an effort to make room for Carter, or just a move by JFJ to leave himself some cap room for the season.
