Leafs looking at Camellari, the Sedins and Komisarek.

I have been extremely busy preparing for Junes entry draft, I'm very excited to say that many sources have been telling me that Tavares is Burkes #1 choice right now and he is willing to do anything to get him.

As for free agency Burke has a wish list that someone within the Leafs organization has sent me (Well 3 names that were on the list) and while yes 2 of them we already knew Komisarek is the surprise while he is definitley a Burke type player would he take the ride down the 401 and play for the Leafs?

Could you imagine a Komi/Schenn pairing I can just see the busted skulls from all the checks they would be laying.

Anyways this is all I have and I will definitley keep you posted on any mumblings leading up to draft day.

Burke passes on Gilroy

This actually according to a source went down to the wire with Burke and Gilroys representitives I am told.

Burke wasn't willing to give a 24 year old unproven defenceman a 2 year 3.5 million contract and in the end I don't blame him.

We could still see Gustavsson sign this weekend or early next week.

Burke making calls

Word on the street is Brian Burke has been hard at work trying to get the Islanders and or the Tampa Bay Lightning's 1st round pick in the hopes of selecting John Tavares.

I have spoke to several sources this week who have said that the deal could happen but if the Islanders or Lightning try and bring Luke Schenn into the mix the deal will be nixed.

Leafs close to Gilroy, could sign goalie from Copenhagen

I have spoken to sources this weekend the Leafs and the Canucks are the most likely teams to sign D Matt Gilroy. I was told it could announced as early as Monday but also as late as Friday.

In other news I have just gotten word Brian Burke skipped last nights game to be in Copenhagen to meet with an agent and his client some goalie that I only know as the Monster. If I get a name I will surely put it here. Ok follow up email his name
Jonas Gustavsson.

Leafs Sign Young F Tyler Bozak

As 1st reported by me a few days ago the Toronto Maple Leafs have agreed to terms with 23 year old F Tyler Bozak of the NCAA.

I was told the terms are the same (Year wise) as Christian Hanson. That's all I know and I'm sure there will be more announced shortly

Leafs win Nailbiter against Flyers 3-2. Sign Christian Hanson

Leafs played a great game. Won 3-2
Not really much to say about this game as it has no meaning.

In other news Leafs sign young forward Christian Hanson, who's father was famous for playing in the Slapshot movies. He's a young physical 2way player, who also bring a nice scoring touch for next season.

Also I have it on good authority that the Leafs have all but signed young forward Tyler Bozak, it's not quite yet done but should be announced by tomorrow morning, or early afternoon.
