Toronto Maple Leaf Rumours

The Toronto Maple Leafs are said to be in deep discussion with the Washington Capitals who have a disgruntled, former captain named Brendan Witt who wants the heck outta Washington. It is said that the Leafs are shopping Berg and a pick, but may also be willing to include a youngster like Carlo Coliacovo in there as well. There are also reports coming out of Nashville that they are shopping Scott Walker and the Leafs are one of the teams said to be interested.

There is also news, I have not had confimation of this thus far, that the Leafs are in the market for a goaltender. I have no idea why but Mikka Noronen is being shopped and was just a signature away from being dealt last week so he may be being discussed in some of John Ferguson Jr.s discussions.

The New York Islanders have called inquiring about Bryan McCabe and are openly shopping Oleg Kvasha so there may be somehting to that but i don't think the Leafs are looking at trading McCabe, eventhough he will be a restricted free agent next summer and want 3.5-4 million (far too much in Toronto's eyes).

On a sad note Jon Ferguson Sr. has to undergo radiation therapy as a result of a brain Tumour so I would like to personally say that I hope he gets better.
