Is this a good deal for the Leafs? Fri, June 22, 2007
One year after trading with the Boston Bruins for Andrew Raycroft, Leafs' GM John Ferguson made another splash Friday, reeling in Vesa Toskala from the San Jose Sharks. Toskala, 30, has one year remaining on a contract that pays him only US$1.375 million.
Forward Mark Bell also comes in the deal for Toronto's 2007 or '08 first-round pick (that's San Jose's option), a 2007 second-round pick and a 2009 fourth-round selection. The Leafs went into Friday night's draft with the 13th overall selection.
