Raking Leafs

Mixing metaphors and casting cliches about hockey and the Maple Leafs for the ether's pleasure since MCMLXVII.


Klee shipped to the Swamp for high scoring winger

The slow-footed defender was not one of my favorite Leafs, to put it mildly, so I like this move. Klee was an above average defender in the old NHL, but with the new enforcement standards emphasizing speed and agility Klee's utility took a hit.(Update - Admittedly his last three games for the Leafs were his best all season. He pinned guys to the boards, and wasn't called for a stick penalty.)
Aleksander Suglobov, on the other hand, was the leading scoring for the Albany River Rats of the AHL this season with 48 points(25g, 23a) to go along with 52 PIMS in 51 games.
