i'd sooner sign berard.

i'm just thinking of D's that might become available shortly...

woolley
karpovstev
hedican
a.ward
timander

the leafs would have to trade aki useless for a pick or dump pushor to make room
I don't see leafs having a big interest in any of those players, some for money reasons, others for skill or age...

and picking one would force the Leafs to drop another Dman if you are talking about being available because of the Waiver draft....and that player is likely Berg as you said.... with me conceiting that the other 5 dmen protected will be Kaberle, McCabe, Marchment, Klee, Jackman ...

Would it be a big upgrade on Berg and it would certainly cost more salary to make the switch to do it ... So I am not so sure its worth it...

The only player on that list I would think about is Aaron Ward if available who may be a steadier stay at home Dman than Berg and worth a lateral move..
