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.

Well, let's see. We've taken about 50 goals out of the lineup and replaced it with a decent defenceman. Looks like he Bruins are looking good for the 1st or 2nd pick.

Brian Burke knows what he is doing and his only goal is what is best for our team! I am happy with the changes he has made and believe that he is the one and only person that can make sure our players rebuild their confidence and their ability to be the best there is!! Go Leafs Go, we love you, win or lose you are the best there is!!

Burkie rolls the dice and Leaf fans wonder..Will Phaneuf become 'Pronger' like..and will 'Jiggy'find 'Lost Glory'..if this occurs..the 'Renaissance' is under way.

The trade with the Flames is a real shake up for both basement clubs. But the trade with the Ducks is far from being equal. Giguere is not close to being a starter or back up. It's a plain salary dump for the Leafs with Blakes contract and Toskala was not going to be offered a contract extension. We'll have to stay tuned for more trades from the buds. Thing is we are giving more than receiving.

i hate to see white go. the rest we can live without.

Nice move Sutter(s). Was obvious the Flames needed to shake things up. Dion was a little dissapointing the last couple of seasons and didn't play well in the play offs last year although injuries were a part of that I'm sure. I like this move. Although Dion may be the best player involved in this deal, it would be hard to convince me that T.O. got the best in the deal, As always, time will tell.

The Calgary-Toronto trades was good for both. The Flames gain some badly needed offense while the Leafs get a player they can potentially build around, while getting rid of a couple of players who probably wanted out anyway.

The goalie trade is a big question mark. Two teams trading goalies who they've lost confidence in.

Acquiring Dion is great, although I hate to see Ian White go but now I have to question who the heck is going to score for this team now? Kadri?

the trades were ok except getting rid of jason blake he was the only player to give 110% every game when on the ice sad to see him go

Solid defence and goaltending! Get sundin out of retirement and trade the coach for one that isn't always complaining (Gretky is available)and I might start to repect the maple leafs again.
