The Toronto Maple Leafs may have a Swedish MAP line next season if everything works out well. That is a line of Mats, Alex and Peter, as in Sundin, Steen and Forsberg.
Now, this is not set in stone with hieroglyphs into the walls of the ACC, but it is still within the realm of possibilities.
Leafs eyeing Forsberg
They would be a hard team to check with him and Spezza the top 2 centers and Heatly and Alfredson the top 2 wingers.
I still think they can use 1 or 2 more big tough wingers that can play on a regular basis or a tough physical defenceman.

I think he may help, but in a very limited way.

That is why the Sens traded Shaffer to Boston to make room under the cap to sign Emery and Schubert without that trade 1 of them isnt signed. Shaffer is making around $ 2 million a year while Donovan is making around $ 800,000 a year. They will be in big trouble next summer when both Spezza and Heatley contracts are up. It may be sign 1 or the other like in the Redden / Chara situation all over again. Should be a very interesting summer in Ottawa next year.

The Sens are almost capped out thats why they would have to trade away a player or 2 to make room for Forsbergs contract.
Rod and James, the Sens hardly choked this year making it to the finals. Its rare a team wins the cup there first time getting there. Also look at all the time the Sens had between series, they must have averaged at least 6 or 7 days. Thats alot of time off before the next series starts. Emery did struggle in the finals but he was playing hurt with a tendon I think that was torn and he had surgey on this summer so he will be 100 % when the season starts in October.
Every team that didnnt make the playoffs or were beat out during the playoffs would give anything to be in the Sens skates and play for the cup. The Sens had a great year and hopefully they can build on it.
