Maple Leafs Moving On! Jokinnen or Halpern to the Leafs

According to Cliff Fletcher the team is preparing for life without Mats Sundin. Is this a mistake I think not the Leafs need to get younger and fast and I think letting Mats move on is the right decision. If this is the case then the Leafs need a new centerman as I feel Antropov is not the answer to the vacant #1 spot. With that in mind there there are a few viable options for the Buds one that may have already been solved by Fletcher when he talk about his "Homerun" trade that so many of us have heard about.

Now up pops the name Patrick Marleau again could he be an option he is nearly making what the Leafs were offering to Mats Sundin. He does have an NTC and any trade would have to be approved by him.

Another option would be Jussi Jokinnen someone who I here is continually being mentioned in any trade involving Pavel kubina along with Halpern.

Either way come Friday or early next week there will be another new face on the Maple Leafs roster.

Once again I would like to say that I called the Pascal Leclaire signing days before it happened! Including the 3 year term.

I agree you called the Pascal shot but you also said Sundin would be back with the Leafs. But as Meatloaf says 2/3 ain't bad ;)

I did and a few days ago it looked all but certain and then when Fletcher said that the Leafs were moving on I knew it was over.

As for Jeff Halpern and Jussi Jokinnen well thats another story.

I'll take Jokinnen and a 1st or 2nd but Jeff Halpern is too old for a rebuilding team IMO.

Several hockey media outlets were aware that Leclaire had agreed on the three-year term. I believe you "called" the money to be $14 million, when in fact he signed for much less ($11.4 million). To say you called the shot is being a little facetious.

Ok fine but I actually called a 3 year deal about a week and a half before it happened.

As far as Marleau since his NTC has now clicked in and SJ has no need for d-man anymore, I don't see a fit for a trade with Toronto. I'm sure that SJ might want Steen, but as far as moving Marleau I don't see it.

How about
SJ- Antropov, Steen
TO- Marleau, Clowe
Both teams get what they need and nobody gets hurt :)

love it or hate it, antropov knows how to play on both ends of the ice, especially in the defensive zone. Marleau does not. Steen is still developing in to a top line forward.

I would not make that trade.

It's funny u say that SJ fans feel that they are getting the short end in the deal. I feel the deal is fair , if not a bit one sided for SJ.
