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
They should be one of the bottom teams in the league for the next few years and be drafting in the top 5 and rebuild like Pittsburgh did.
I heard on the radio this morning that Stajan and Moore are the Leafs priorities right now. I had to shake my head and make sure I heard that correctly, both are 3rd liners at best and they are the priorites ????? No wonder they havent done anything in 41 years and counting. No offence to either of them but the AHL is full of guys like them.
Should be a very interesting rest of the summer.

At the trade deadline he refused to move. The leafs could have gotten someone for him and he'd have been back July 1st.
Now he's stalling efforts for Fletcher to start a rebuild by his indecision. This guy doesn't give a rat's a$$ about the leafs and Bob Gainey wants to give this turd 8 mil??
For what? Sitting in front of the net like a fat house cat counting his money??
Kiss him goodbye Cliff, he's a cancer to the team with his me me attitude.
And he won some award for leadership this year??
