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.

You have to laff along with the Laffs

Get serious Cliffhanger and get some more talented scouts. By not doing so you are making this a lot more difficult for yourself.

Of course, I would take the job more seriously and take in more junior games than you could shake a stick at.
It's just too bad that you need to be a "hockey expert" to get a job where you are not judged by your results.

September will tell the tale.

Signing Stuart was not an option..do you think he'd come to TO after winning a Cup with the Wings only to find himself golfing in April next year? Uh uh!
Fletcher is building a core that will gain experience as a team for a few years. Might even find one or two of them to be gems. Once this is established, then it's time to bring in some guns to add some scoring.
Paying Sundin anything right now would be silly. Use the remaining cap space to acquire talent during the season through trades and have that coin to sign players at the trade deadline. The team will become competitive within a few years and actually make a run at the playoffs.
Those are the building blocks of a reborn franchise.
...and to those doubters...Finger is going to surprise many.

As for Burke - read Kevin Lowe's comments. The man is over-rated.
