“While details are few, sources say the Toronto Maple Leafs are on the verge of completing at least one trade today that will be viewed as a “major change.”

Specifics as to whether the deal will be for an upgrade in goal, or for offensive help, weren’t provided, however this deal and potentially others are very close to being completed.

When asked if these “major changes” were imminent, the source replied, “they should start happening today.”

Details to follow on TSN.ca”(Source: Darren Dreger of TSN)

Something has to give in the Big Smoke of Toronto, and according to Darren Dreger (who is a very reliable source for inside information) today is going to be very active, in fact “major changes” are imminent.

We’ll be covering this situation closely as the story breaks….

    My Prediction: JSG is traded to the Leafs, along with something of value for Toronto taking on his contract. They will, of course, have to clear salary space in the meantime — by sending a Finger or a Stempniak to the minors.

    ..and my reasoning is as much about Burke’s unwillingness to finish among the 3 worst teams in the league. I think they could win a bunch of meaningless games at the end of the season, with better goaltending. I think it is obvious that “The Monster” needs to learn behind a veteran Goaltender for at least one more season.
