Klee is the same level is Klemm. Klee on any good team would at most a 5th Dman so why pay him so much?

If Belfour worth $6mil? Bad Back, 39yrs old, No other team (in there right minds) wanted him as a starter. So he isn't worth it.

Then why did it take him so long to find a team to sign with last year, he was pretty good with the Devils as well?

Just because you like a team or a player doesn't mean you can't realize when a GM or a Player makes a mistake (or mistakes in this case).

With these guys coming back do you realistically see the Leafs winning the Cup? Haven't you already noticed that every year the reason the Leafs drop dead in the playoffs is because they are always injured? The Leafs need some guys like Steen and Tellquvist and Colovoico to coming and take charge not guys like Belfour & Nieuwendyk. Guys like Belfour and Nieuwendyk can still help the Leafs but should be behind Sundin, Mogiliny, Nolan, Tellquivst, Steen, Colovoico as the "extra firepower".
