Great pick-up by the Leafs. Steen needed a change of scenery and Carlo I think is a lost cause now. Stempniak is a great player.

If you search Leaf fan sites, though, many are cursing the trade thinking they could've done MUCH better. *sigh*

It's becauses Stempniak is such an odd-sounding name..... and American.

And because many leaf fans are stupid.

Typical Leafs fans response though. Carlo's one hard body check away from packing it in for good and Steen for some reason has forgotten how to play hockey this season. If anything, I think the Leafs got the better end of the trade.

I'm gonna miss Steen and I won't be surprised if he really breaks out at some point.

He's a highly-skilled player who does what he is asked to do.

But I like the trade.

Leafs are pathetic. They praise mediocrity and its a shame the fans buy it.

Let me add a little more to my "yes, yes, and yes" post for earlier, I was eating so I was too lz to type to much

Brian Burke may not be perfect for the job because he has no skills picking goaltenders and with Toskala struggling, we might have a problem :/ but he has made some excellent acquisitions for the Ducks : Pronger, Neidermayer, Selanne, Beauchomin and he's drafted some great players also : Getzlaf and Perry who are the obvious futures of the franchise.

I mean, Cliff Fletcher has done an excellent job and has made the foundation, now Burke has to come in and build the dynasty which might take a long, long time but i'll be waiting

BTW...I was reading a few articles and Burkey might be GM of the Leafs by this time next week...and we all know Burke can do no harm

Thank you for elaborating. But whatever he can't do any harm by coming here. All he can do is make this team better.









Hopefully

Burke didn't draft Getzlaf and Perry. They were waiting there for him.

This Burke thing is really old, I keep seeing it on TSN every day, along with Sundin

If TML get Burke as GM Toronto will have the two best GM's in their sports (Burke, NHL), (Colangelo, NBA)

It's funny, go through the T.O. sports papers and Fletcher is now being slammed for dealing away Coliacovo and Steen. Damien Cox specifically seems to think its a bad trade for Leafs management.

Why any fool, would want to be the GM of that team, I'll never know.

I think it was a fantastic trade for the Leafs. Carlo is injury prone - whether its concussion problems (which is NOT good for a defenseman) and a guy who is essentially a 3rd line player in Steen. Stempniak will score 25 this year easy - and he's still only 25.
