The Maple Leafs have traded Carlo Colaicovo and Alex Steen to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for forward Lee Stempniak.
Stempniak, 25, a native of West Seneca, N.Y., scored 27 goals two seasons ago.
This season, he has three goals and 10 assists through 14 games.
Is this a good move for the Leafs? Have your say in our forum.
Colaiacovo, Steen dealt to Blues
And by the way, at least 8 teams have recently announced - and I stress recently - that ALL prices are frozen for their games - tickets, parking, food, souvenirs etc. And more will soon follow.
Sorry, but what the Leafs are doing is nothing more than a cash-grab, knowing full well thet, with the fans slavishly flocking to the rink regardless, they have a licence to print money!

i'm disappointed that you are jumping on the "ticket-issue" band wagon. most of the teams raised ticket prices last year and this year. The Leafs were the very few who didn't.
and i find it a bit offensive to call Leafs fans stupid just because they support their team. but i guess the Sens fans are the example everybody should follow. they are abandoning their team at the first sing of trouble.

That the place will still be full next season speaks volumes about the collective IQ of the average fans in that area. Then again, what can you expect about an area that regularly elects tax-and-spend Liberals to both the provincial and federal governments.

It's because Colorado has scored when he has played that his record is as good as it is.
As for Finger, I think he was a good signing - maybe a bit too much money, but other teams wanted him too.
Just be patient. People seem to think rebuilding is completed in only 6 months, whereas in reality it takes at least 3 years.

Then along comes this revelation re raycroft
My, my how times have changed. Who was it that brought Raycroft in? Oh yeah, that reviled GM JFJ. Who ran Raycroft out of town? Oh yeah,Mr. Fix-It, Trader Cliff who then turned around and forked over $4 million plus for some obscure journyman D named Finger.
Good luck Burke. You're gonna need it.

I do believe that Ottawa should be better, but I think they are trying to get a top 5 pick in the draft.
The GM and owner have said nothing about the poor play of the team - they seem to be accepting of it.
