Are the Leafs pulling off good moves?
Mon, November 24, 2008

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.

Well we may want to take a lesson from New Jersey and turn no name brands into productive quality brands. Enter Ron Wilson/Brian Burke and their gang at duplicating noman's land success in the midst of hockey mecca...all the best!

The best move the Leafs could make is getting rid of their brutal corporate season ticket holders, they are not true blue fans they go to the games to be seen not heard.After the intermissions the platinum seats are empty for the first five minutes of the period because all these so called fans are too busy eating sushi.

They should change the name to Toronto Lions ROFL

What Roster?????

If Leafs get Sundin back..I wouldn't be surprised.. they always go for old news...needless to say he benver won it before for the Laf, he sure as hell won't do it wih this bunch,,,Leafs still have NO exceptional young prospect except for Grabovski.. but he stands out easily!

I'm no Leaf fan and I've learned never to second guess Clff Fletcher.

As much as I hate to admit it, he's the best GM the Leafs have had in years.

I can't wait for Brian Ballard.....oops Burke to screw things up.

Ohh....Norbit!!

"Stempniak plays in St.Louis where there is almost no pressure at all, now he's going to TO where players are expected to walk on water." - Sez you.

Heck, ALL players walk on water - it's called ice!

Let's wait and see on the new guy. Steen and Carlo? Let's hope they do better south. (other issue)

Ron, Don't put Nik out there 4 on 4, it isn't his forte.

Seems like a good move on paper: trade an injury prone player and an underachiever for another young guy who can score goals. As a matter of fact. he is outscoring Colaicovo and Steen combined. Thing is, Stempniak plays in St.Louis where there is almost no pressure at all, now he's going to TO where players are expected to walk on water. I think he wont do as well in the pressure cooker.

Look at Wellwood. The entire Leafs Nation said, "oh trade that bum!" and look at what he's doing this year in Vancouver. McCabe has also done better since leaving. I dont think the Leafs problem is personnel, I think its the hockey culture that surrounds them and puts ridiculous pressure and completely unreasonable expectations on guys who are STILL DEVELOPING. How much you want to bet that people will be calling out Schenn by the end of the year? Until the organization AND the fans learn some patience, any promising young talent will continue to flounder.

Hard to tell...can't see any future with this team. Yup, there's a bunch of pluggers, they work hard, but some times not hard enough, and not enough do any scoring.

Steen and Colaicovo were basically invisible, except when Steen was penalty killing.

I actually think Fletcher may be on crack...Stepniack a top 6 forward???? Only on the Leafs. Fletch should be looking for top 6 forwards from another team, preferrably at the top of the standings.
