New Leaf

Bye-bye Carlo Colaiacovo and Alex Steen.

Hello Lee Stempniak.

An interesting trade by the Leafs. Two underperforming young guys who had(have?) loads of potential for a young guy who is showing lots of potential, and is producing this season. Mixed feelings abound on the trade. In the end, it looks good to me.

Plus, it frees up just under $500k in cap space for the team, pushing their cap cushion over $10 million.

Which would be enough to bring Mats Sundin back without it looking bad to Vancouver or anyone else. Just starting rumours.

Brian Burke will likely be GM by the end of the week, if not sooner.

Interesting times here in Leafs land. Team still sucks, but that's okay.
