Once again I'de like to reiterate that this is just a rumor so I take no responsibility if it is wrong LOL! I don't quite understand this rumor especially because the Leafs just signed F Rickard Wallin who does essentially the same thing as Moen.
I was thinking this whole time that Burkie would make a move for a scorer.
Speaking of making moves Burke has received a significant offer for one of his Dmen (I believe its White or Van Ryn) but if he has why has the trigger not been pulled? I think you can only make people wait so long before they want to call you a $hit Head! If Burke has a significant offer on the table that could nab the Leafs a top 6 forward then he needs to make that deal.
Just my opinion
UPDATE: As I have said in the past this is why I don't usually like to post rumors that often despite the name of the blog LOL! Travis Moen has signed a 3 year deal with the Montreal Canadiens today. I had heard that as well as Toronto so it could have came down to the wire.

I don't have any relative info on the kid he does have some experience in the NHL though he was drafted by Pheonix but never played a game for them. He did however play something like 19 games for Minnesota.
I'll have more later including a rumor that was just handed to me.
Burke has been entertained offers for some of his places, including Tomas Kaberle. However, he's indicated that he'll require an out-of-this-world proposal if he's to move with his All-Star defenseman.
"We got our first serious trade offer - not for Kaberle, for a lesser defenceman," Burke told the Star.
"But that's the next thing, to see if we can parlay a defenceman into a forward."
It's uncertain if the Leafs are pursuing any unrestricted free agent forwards, as the likes of Alex Tanguay and Ales Kotalik are still available; though it appears Burke is scouring the trade market for a scorer.
"We're not done. We've still got cap room and you can go over the cap in the summer," Burke said.
The St. Louis Blues are among the teams interested in Kaberle, and the Star indicates the Los Angeles Kings and Columbus Blue Jackets are also after a puck-moving defenseman.
"There is interest (in Kaberle), but nothing that requires thinking about," Burke said. "If I had to handicap this, I'd say he will be a Leaf at the start of the year. That can change with one phone call, but I haven't been given any offers that approach what I would think it would take to make that deal."
The Sources Take:
I don't know to me personally it seems like Burke is getting a little swell in that already large head of his, I think Kaberle could fetch a Pronger type deal but teams won't just give away there bonafide superstars just for Kaberle.
While Toronto had no trouble scoring last season (that was before they traded Antropov and Moore) I still think they need that big scorer as I've said before Tanguay is still available. Hopefully Burkie can make a move soon.

With the log jam at the back end the Leafs need to move some bodies and address there forward lines, I have heard many a rumor as of late But I don't feel they commend a spot on my blog until I here something from some of my stronger sources.
I can tell you that the rumored team that made the offer is either Edmonton or LA.
More news later

The Maple Leafs also have interest in rugged center Rickard Wallin who is the teams captain, I have no word on any signing yet but it could be close stay tuned. Wallin had 5 goals and 9 assists his last time around in the NHL. He was then property of the Minnesota Wild.

Another rumor circulating is that the Leafs have all but signed D Francois Beauchamin and that we could see Kaberle shipped to Vancouver for G Cory Schneider and a prospect that I have yet to find.
This is all contrary of course to what Asst GM Dave Nonis has said that the Leafs are done until some of the asking prices come down.
We shall see what happens.

1.) F Colton Orr- 4 years/ $4,000,000
2.)D Mike Komisarek - 5 years/ $22,500,000
RUMOR: According to a source the Toronto Maple Leafs have offered a contract to UFA F Alex Tanguay worth around 15 million over 4 to 5 years. I'm waiting to get confirmation on this but I don't expect to hear anything till at least 10 am tomorrow.
Toronto has traded D Pavel Kubina to Atlanta for D Garnet Exelby and a forward not yet named.
I now have the rest of the players in the deal. Atlanta gets the rights to Tim Stapleton. Toronto gets Colin Stewart.
This will be where you can find out who will be signing today come back regularly for your updates.
