Leafs Qualify Pogge

Despite alot of people thinking otherwise the Toronto Maple Leafs have qualified your G Justin Pogge no terms or money was announced.

I assume this move is to make sure he doesn't walk for nothing, it could also mean the Leafs are out of the Jonas Gustavsson sweeps.

The young Swede is expected to make his mind up before noon on Wednesday when the UFA market opens up. I guess we will see what happens in the coming days.

Maple Leafs close to another trade???

Take this for what is worth but there is a rumor floating around that the Leafs are trying to acquire the rights to Brayden Schenn, I don't know who started this (I personaly don't believe this) but I thought I would post it here.

From A Source:

Toronto is looking to acquire F Ryan Clowe from the SJ Sharks but apparently Wilson is looking for a 1st round pick, IMO I don't know if Ryan is worth that kind of payment, if Kessel wasn't then Clowe will definitely not be.

Stay tuned.

Leafs draft C Nazem Kadri, No trades yet

So the Maple Leafs were not able to draft Tavares or Schenn but they got a very good player in C Nazem Kadri.

The Maple Leafs have been in discussion according to a source with Tampa Bay about a player swap I have no news on what it could be (Don't even think Lecavalier) I'll keep you posted.

Maple Leafs Sign Gustavsson?

So I have been talking to Pierre McGuire and Steve Simmons this morning who have both told me the Leafs are expected to announce the signing of Jonas Gustavsson on or before the draft this weekend.

McGuire said that we are looking at a 3 year deal worth $950,000 a year +bonuses. But he wasn't a 100% because the Maple Leafs have a policy in which they don't state publicly what a player is making. He said if he had to put a time stamp on it Wed or Thursday are the days he would think are most likely to be announcement day.

Lets keep our fingers crossed

According to a source of mine the Leafs may be close to acquiring the 2nd overall pick from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He said players to watch for are Kaberle and a prospect plus Toronto's number 7 pick, apparently Toronto would also get a player from Tampa I have heard Andrei Mezaros but why would you want him lol!

Anyway I will keep everyone posted.

BREAKING NEWS: Leafs will not re-sign Pogge

Big news in Toronto today the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that they will not be retaining the services of 2 of there goalies one being Curtis Joseph and the other Justin Pogge.

I think this is a smart move down the road it seems that Pogge could never really get things going in the AHL or the NHL. I think Gerber would be a wise choice for at least a backup role in Toronto to puch Toskala I guess we will see what happens in the coming days when we should find out about Gustavsson.
