Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Holland should have re-signed Lebda for $850k and traded him to Toronto for a bunch of picks and prospects. It would have saved Burke some cap space. win/win :ph34r:

We laugh now. Yet I'm definitely afraid that once his contract is up, and let's say Lebda shows his worth as more of a veteran's minimum (if that) kind of player, then Kenny will offer him a contract to be a #6 or #7 defenseman. It'll be like Jason Williams all over again.

Lebda only played 17 seconds in the third period last night. It's no wonder the Leafs came back and won. ;)

I doubt it. This time around we have good depth in the D pipeline even after a few of our players retire. He will end up like Dandenault retired by the age of 34.

Yea the Lebda complaining in Toronto has started. They were talking about him and his turnovers today on the FAN590.

You act as if Holland is incompetent.

In other news, Ritola is currently a -5 and has the same two points he had way back when.

I only find this amusing because I remember him doing an interview when he just started with the Leafs. He said something along the lines of, "Detroit was great, but Toronto is the hockey capital of the world".

Well Brett, enjoying the hockey capital? Better bring some bear mace when you're anywhere in public.

Remember when leafs fans were all excited to get him? And when Eklund said he was good for at least 40 points. Lol.
