This makes it easier for everyone, Shedden, Leafs, Max, Lada.
Agree...just one additional comment that I would like to add in that Bill Waters and Leaf management look a bit silly signing every Dman they ever drafted to a contract last off season in hopes that 1 would turn out okay...Now Max is going to Russia to eleveate a logjam in St. Johns..David Turon was sent packing to the ECHL...Ian White back to Junior ...Pierre Hedin sits games as do other Dmen in St Johns..,Ric Jackman floating on conditioning stints between St. Johns and NHL..when the player that now has the spot is Karel Pilar who they had all along, but almost wrote off...
