The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to re-build the home grown way. There’s still 1 week to go until the NHL Trade Deadline and The leafs have made 2 trades in 2 days picking up draft picks and shedding salary.
On Sunday the Leafs traded Shawn Matthius to Colorado for a young prospect (Colin Smith) and a 4th round draft pick. On Monday the Leafs parted ways with Roman Polak and Nick Spaling. They dealt the 2 players to the San Jose Sharks for a 2nd round draft pick in 2017 and a 2nd round draft pick in 2018. The Leafs also got Raffe Torres. (Torres isn’t expected to play with the big club).
The Leafs will have 12 picks at this years entry draft. Including a very high pick if they stay where they are in the standings.
Are the Leafs done dealing or will there be more trades? will the Leafs unload any of their big name players? In one week we will know for sure.
