What's your opinion of the Maple Leafs' trades?
Sun, January 31, 2010
The Calgary Flames shipped Dion Phaneuf, forward Fredrik Sjostrom, and defenceman Keith Aulie to the Maple Leafs in exchange for forwards Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman, Jamal Mayers and defenceman Ian White.

Later Sunday, goalie J.S. Giguere from the Anaheim Ducks for embattled goalie Vesa Toskala and overpriced forward Jason Blake.

Phaneuf to Maple Leafs in blockbuster

Reading these comments, it's no wonder that Leaf Fans are always derided.

The Leafs gave up nothing (other than White). They get a 1st class d-man in Phaneuf. I know Calgary slagged him this year, but what will they say when he's up for the Norris in a couple of years? They get rid of Blake and his salary as well as Toskala "the sieve" for a solid veteran goalie that will help Gustavsson.

This was a set of very solid moves that will quickly improve the Leafs' prospects for next year.

i think that trade should never have happened i mean calgary is my fav. team and pheneuf was my fav. player.

Giguere needs a fresh start and is a way better goalie than Toskala..good deal..Phanuef will also be a 50-60 pt defencemen now and in the future.Overall Burke knows what he is doing, did great things in Vancouver and he IS a WINNER !!

Lafs should never have traded the big m. It's been downhill since. As for this debacle, just switching around the deck chairs as they've been doing the last 40 years. They need a long term PLAN (less than 40 years).

These trades kind of remind me of an old army joke: "Good news men! You get a change of underwear today. Smith, you trade with Jones .... ". Everyone got rid of someone they didn't want.

WAht a joke...Burke is a winbag all talk and a lousy negotiater...Leafs screwed again..

i agree....im sick and tired of watching the leafs suck every night....anything has to be an improvement...toskala and blake were useless in my mind..however i would have prefered to get rid of ponikarovski over hagman/white...but hey they cant really get any worse at this point....so we shall see what happens....would be nice to see them win again...

As a flames fan, I'm surprised they got more than a bag of pucks for Phaneuf. Way overpaid for a mediocre lazy defenseman. Sjostrom is a fourth liner. Who knows about the prospect except he was drafted in the 4rth round

If you thought Toskala was weak wait until you see why Giguere was the back up in Anaheim
