Leaf Trade Fall-Out

Fernandez to Boston is looking VERY likely at this hour. The Bruins wanted Toskala but will settle for Fernandez and his larger salary.

Dave Tallen says he will keep his first pick, but Tampa Bay is still trying to get it off of him.

Buffalo is trying hard to deal for Philly's second round pick. This is something to keep an eye on.

Some confusion, as many are emailing me saying "toskala is an RFA? Is that why the Leafs are working on an extention with him?"...nope, Toskala will be a 1.375 cap hit for this season. The Leafs will look to extend him for another 2-3 years. Like I've said in our forums (which will be draft central tonight, unfortunatly I will not be around until after 11), this is a great deal for Toronto, they are a much better team right now.

Raycroft is being quietly shopped right now, and the Leafs would still love to move a defenseman. I don't think Ferguson is done yet.

It's going to be an exciting day. For more rumours, check the Rumour Mill at, it was updated today and has some of the latest rumours I am hearing. Enjoy the draft and all the action that is about to happen.
