Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
We’ve pinched ourselves and waited ’till morning. David Clarkson’s still listed as a Columbus Blue Jacket. Strapped with way too many long term deals for a bottom five hockey club, the Leafs needed to open up cap flexibility. Nobody expected they would be able to offload the League’s biggest boat anchor. Not in a million years, not without giving up assets and retaining salary. Thankfully Columbus came knocking, in a terrible spot with Nathan Horton’s co...

Game 61 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 3 vs. Flyers 2
The Clarkson-free Leafs had a strong first twenty-five minutes, out-chancing the Flyers and opening up a 2-0 lead on a pair of goals from the top line.   The rest of the second period was all Philadelphia, as they dominated the chances, 10-1, but couldn’t find a way past Jonathan Bernier. The Leafs started the third by widening the lead even further, but faced some penalty problems, as the Flyers had a number of chances on special teams, including a pair of power-play goals. Ber...

The basics of Long Term Injury Reserve as it pertains to Nathan Horton
While Leafs fans rightfully celebrate not having to watch David Clarkson play hockey for 5 more years, taking up $5.25 million a season of their team’s cap space in the process, here’s a basic reminder of how LTIR actually works, now that the injured Nathan Horton is getting paid by the Leafs organization. Long Term Injured Reserve is not the same as removing a cap hit altogether. In cases of LTIR, the cap hit is still technically on the books the team is granted an exemption that all...

Leafs trade David Clarkson for Nathan Horton
This is a genius save by the Leafs and MLSE, flexing their financial muscle to expunge the worst contract mistake in team history. On Long Term Injured Reserve and effectively off the cap* (note: there are some ramifications on the cap for LTIR), Nathan Horton’s career looks to be over due to horrible back injuries. From a piece by Greg Wyshynski: “I can’t stand up like a normal person; I can’t bend over. I can’t run. I can’t play with my kids. To get in and out of the...

Leafs re-acquire TJ Brennan in exchange for Spencer Abbott
The Leafs have re-acquired defenceman TJ Brennan in exchange for forward Spencer Abbott. The Leafs re-signed Abbott, a former free agent out of college, and let Brennan go last July, and have evidently deciding to reverse their decision with this trade. After an All-Star AHL season with 69 points in 66 games (and 11 more points in 11 playoff games), a season which included his first NHL game as a callup, Abbott took a considerable step back this season and, turning 27 in a few months, does...

Sold out of rentals; Is Tyler Bozak next?
With the Daniel Winnik trade goes the Leafs’ most consistent player of the past couple of months, as the Leafs get necessarily worse in the short term while fetching good value for their final pending-UFA. Roman Polak, with one year left on his contract, seems to be the most likely remaining candidate to be moved, while Tyler Bozak’s name has been gaining steam as well, with Bob McKenzie reporting a possible New York Rangers connection yesterday. The Rangers don’t ost...

Daniel Winnik on being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins [Audio & Transcript]
Daniel Winnik spoke to Bryan Hayes about his time in Toronto, what he’s looking forward to in Pittsburgh: First thing that comes to mind about the Pittsburgh Penguins: Chance to win the Stanley Cup. With Crosby and Malkin I think you’ve got a chance every single year. I’m looking forward to helping that cause. It used to be my job to try to shut them down. I don’t think I’ve done too good a job of it the past few years. It will be nice to help them score instead of trying to ...

Bob McKenzie on Winnik trade, what’s next for Leafs
Bob McKenzie on TSN Drive: Winnik trade: [Zach] Sill is obviously a component where the contact had to come back the other way. The Penguins not only needed the Leafs to eat half of Winnik’s salary for remainder of the deal — it’s only rest of this season — but they also needed them to take Sill, that’s how tight things are vis-a-vis the salary cap. Whether they want Sill or whether he was just an economic consideration remains to be seen; [it’s] probably an economic co...

Daniel Winnik Traded to Pittsburgh
Winnik traded to Pens. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) February 25, 2015 The Leafs get Zach Sill, a 2nd round pick in 2016 and a 4th round pick in 2015. Handsome return for a depth forward and a late summer pickup out of the bargain bin. The second round pick is in 2016, meaning the Leafs are still without one in 2015, but now have two in 2016. The Leafs also retained half of Winnik’s $1.3 million salary for the remainder of the season, which helped grease the wheels on the ...
