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
I have the right to rip or compliment anyone I choose to.
The people ripping Sundin the floater are the ones that can actually see how over rated he really is.
Only other player that I can think of that got as much hype for doing nothing would be Eric Lindross.
We pay there salaries and we can cheer or boo them as we see fit, thats our right as paying fans.
If you cant handle the truth about the most over rated leaf then stop reading our posts.

It is pretty easy to figure out Ken meant Voskala, was simply a typo to anyone witha brain except you I guess.

Fletcher has lost it and agents are taking advantage of him. Hagman with a CAREER HIGH 27 goals and 41 points last year and a salary of $675,000, now gets $3Million a year. 485 career games, 165 career points and minus 22, yup just what the Leafs need.
"We look forward to him bringing his speed, grit and scoring touch to our lineup," Fletcher said.
And who the heck is this Finger guy???? He must be the second coming of Bobby Orr if he desrves a 700% raise after amassing 94 games in the NHL.
Fletcher said that Finger is a late-bloomer who made great strides last season.
So the Leafs had about $15 million cap space to play with and just spent $6.5 (averaged over 4 years) on Hagman's scoring touch and Finger, the late-bloomer?
Watch out Tavares...see what you're going to have to play with?

Another overpaid and over rated player for the centre of the universe.
Until that signing I thought Fletcher was doing a good job, this signing makes me wonder what he is doing.
I believe last year was his first year in the NHL. Unbelievable, they could have signed 2 players for that kind of money.

Let's see you go top 1300 points and stick with a team as long as you did. He's dealt with the pressure of being tradedfor Wendel Clark, and captaincy on his shoulders for years. No one has the right to complain about a talent this great until they can accomplish their feats as well. Sorry, no one on here. So everyone ripping him can shut it.

No wonder Toronto is going no where.
Fletcher has done nothing worth while. But because Toronto had there best success under Cliff, they still think he's a god.
