TORONTO STAR: Paul Hunter reports Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke is now searching for a free agent penalty-killing forward. Two who could be attractive options include Blair Betts or Travis Moen. The Leafs have about $3.3 million in available cap space meaning Burke could still add a player without giving up assets.

SPECTOR'S NOTE: Moen played for Burke's Ducks so perhaps that could be a fit.

There's a lot of other players besides Moen that the Wings could work with. It would be nice to have him, but I don't know if I see a distinct advantage that Moen has over some other free agents. Anyway, Burke will most likely land him. Former players tend to follow him blindly.

So, speculation from a third-party source that a team MIGHT sign someone is thread worthy?

There's so many "what do we do", "who do we sign" threads already.

It's getting impossible to read this board.

I don't expect the Wings to do any signings until training camp. That's how we got Cleary.

You see, Burke didn't sign Betts. It's merely speculation that he may be targeting Betts.

I have a feeling he'll get Betts, Moen and Niedermayer and have himself a checking line that's on par with the great ones of the Western conference. If he could just get Kaberle gone for a dynamic forward, the Leafs would be in pretty good shape.

Kessel for Kaberle and the 7th no 9th wait 25 no better yet 290th pick, oh s*** what pick were we trading again, call the deal off!


All seriousness though, this deal will be revisited and from what I hear from fans around here is that Hunwick in arbitration is hampering the Kessel new deal talks. Others say it is the opposite and that Hunwick's number is being put off to let Kessel realize he won't get what he thinks.

I think the benching of him, even though for the better of his hockey career, really pissed him off and he wants OUT!

Cleary's the exception, not the rule.

The Wings will sign somebody if/when its necessary. If the brain trust feels we need someone before camp, they'll get it done. Despite media reports outside of Michigan, there's still a ton of players who would LOVE to play in Wings organization. As fans, we need to realize that we may not see another signing until Abdelkader, Helm, or Leino play themselves off this team, or trade deadline time. On paper, our team is just as good as 2008, better IMHO.

Is Boston still looking to move Kessel for Kaberle?...Whatever became of Wheeler; don't recall seeing him play at all this spring.

That might be an issue concerning IQ. I don't find it difficult to navigate this board. This is a discussion forum... discussions occur. I know. Crazy. Maybe ignore the topics you aren't interested in? Insane notion, but it works for me.

Last thing this board needs is yet another poster who feels like they should dictate what is and what isn't thread worthy.


I'm sure Moen will go play for Burke if given the opportunity. The Wings don't need to do anything hasty. Let the Leafs have him. It won't make or break us either way.

Somebody explain to me what makes Travis Moen so special over countless other players available. Not trying to dog Moen, but I just don't get why he's so head and shoulder's above everybody else as he's been mentioned in here about 50 times lately.

proven winner.. good size, good defensively, will hit and stand up for team mates, still really young, and a clutch scorer... and he'll come relatively cheap
