Trade Talks Heating Up + A Huge Tidbit

The Toronto Sun is reporting that the trade talks with regard to the Maple Leafs are heating up .. although nothing is imminent.

It is reported that Burke has had several interesting phone calls in the past 48 hours and HTR feels that these calls could form the basis of possible deals that are likely to happen in the next few weeks.

The players that are mentioned by Ziesberger in the article who are likely of interest include “Nik Antropov, Alexei Ponikarovsky, defencemen Pavel Kubina and Tomas Kaberle, and goalie Vesa Toskala.”

Of other major interest in the article is the huge tidbit that last February Cliff Fletcher apparently had a deal in place with the Flyers that would have saw the Leafs land Jeff Carter and a first round pick for Antropov .. Antropov refused the waive his no trade clause.
