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 love how Toronto fans blindly support a team that blown chunks for the past 20 years

era is still alive in To.
Fletcher intertwines with these three in a perfect fit. How many cups did Fletcher win in TO. Whoa! (you can stop counting now)
Players when signed contracts are not honored, just think what it would be without the CBA!!

The Laffs still have a long way to go to clear out the dead wood and add some better scouts.

Gord- to answer your question- Yes it is time for the Leafs to rebuild and we should welcome this season as a season to develop. Now, the key is to bring in the right players to make the development process work. Wilson and his staff, will do the right thing- he has proven that with his stints in Washington and San Jose. The biggest issue is going to be leadership to get the young players through the adversity of playing in the media mecca and dealing with a record that may not be favorable. As of today, I do not expect a playoff berth this upcoming season, but, that could all change within 1 to 2 week after we digest what happens at the opening of the free agency season. I too am a little shocked by the Clemmenson move.
Just a couple of thoughts here:
Could a Dwayne Roloson or Ty Conklin be wearing the blue and white this season?
Bryan McCabe will excel under Ron Wilson's system. So to will Kubina and Kaberle. Don't be surprised if the D out scores the forwards this season.
If no one takes Raycroft and he is not bought out, he is the Marlies #1 goalie making the Clemmenson move seem more understandable.
Canada Day can't get here fast enough!
