ST. LOUIS - A top 10 NHL scorer who puts defence first?

Sounds like just the player Randy Carlyle needs to build the Maple Leafs into a legit playoff contender. Too bad, coach, you missed him by four or five years.

These days, we're betting the Leafs would scale the Gateway Arch in a midwest blizzard to retrieve former first-rounder Alexander Steen. In a trade that has come back to bite the blue and white, Steen is having a career year, helping the Blues to what they hope is a 100-point season and a deep playoff run.
