Just throwing it out there cool.gif

Per TSN:

QUOTE
Rugged Maple Leafs forward Jamal Mayers believes he has at least a few good years left him in, but doesn't see Toronto in his future.

Leafs general manager Brian Burke granted Mayers agent, Pat Brisson, permission to speak to teams in an effort to generate trade interest.

Sources say the Maple Leafs have also made it clear to all NHL teams Mayers is available.

If we could throw Lebda their way for Mayers then I'd be game...Mayers/Maltby/May for the 4th line would be great for the playoffs lookaround.gif


EDIT - Even better would be to throw Leino in for Mayers; would offset the cap space.

He never seemed to be a target for Holland... which sucks, as I love his game.
He probably wanted $$$ as his $1.3 salary indicates.

No it wouldn't.

And I would never give up Leino for Mayers.

I wonder if it is the best idea to trade Lebda away at this point... the way Ericsson has been playing I wouldnt be surprised if the 3rd D pairing was Lebda-Lilja (helped us win the cup in 08) when Lilja returns... Ericsson has been more of a liability than Lebda or Meech IMO, although they are all liabilities (judging by their play recently).

This guy sucks. He is a waste of space in Toronto and he would be a waste of space here. I hate Lebda with a passion but I would not trade him for Mayers. Mayers brings physicality to the table but otherwise, he is useless. Dallas Drake right now, is probably better than Mayers.

I'd trade Leino for a bag of pucks, let alone for an NHL calibur player like Mayers.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Is this a joke? Mayer's jockstrap has more value than Leino on the ice.

There is no doubt Leino doesn't have much confidence and hasn't looked too good, but he has looked better lately and still has a lot of potential. I just don't think Mayers would make enough of a contribution to the team this year to warrant letting him go.

Leino's only contribution has been tipping the waiter from the pressbox 20% for bring him his Sprite and Milkshakes.

I wouldn't want Mayers. He's not the same player who played for St. Louis anymore. He never did anything in Toronto.

He's overpriced for what he is - a 4th liner with some grit...

I'd rather keep the roster spot for May at 500k if it were between the two of them...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

I agree with you, plus the only thing we don't need right now is a bottom 6 forward. We already will need to shed a couple of those in the next week or so.*

He's 35 with no skill and no desire a lot of nights, and our third/fourth line is already getting up there in age. He'd make Maltby look like Marleau.

I'd take Ponikarovsky at a $2.1 million hit for the rest of the season if we're still injured, can't find a cheaper winger and they're willing to take a Lebda/Meech-type scrap heap D man and a second round pick.

well, I think if we traded for anything it should be a third line center. so Helm can play with Draper and eaves.

With our injured players close to coming back, there is no need for Mayers. They will have a surplus.

He'd better hope he gets traded; if not, he's going to be sitting in the middle of the bench even more than he does now.

mayers would add nothing to this team. regardless of whether he is more valuable than leino, neither of them would be playing once the team gets healthy. his salary is awful for what he brings. it makes zero sense.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

That is a possibility, but Miller and Williams can both play center, plus as much as I would like Filpulla on the second line I expect Babcock will split Zetterberg and Datsyuk when Franzen comes back and put Filpulla back on the third line.
