Leafs Land Centre



Toronto, ON - The Toronto Maple Leafs wasted no time in making a big move. Early Sunday afternoon the Leafs send winger James van Riemsdyk and top young defenseman Jake Gardiner to the Colorado Avalanche for centre Paul Stastny, Defensive prospect Stefan Elliott and a 5th round selection in 2013.

Paul is in desperate need of a change of scenery, and Toronto will give him that. He will have every opportunity to prove himself as a #1 centre in the NHL playing with the likes of Phil Kessel and Joffery Lupul on Toronto's top line. It is very difficult to move a young guy the Gardiner, but with Rielly, Finn, Blacker, Percy and now Elliott in the system, we have a glut of young D-men poised for NHL minutes.


The Deal looks like this:


Paul Stastny
Stefan Elliott
COL 5th '13



James van Riemsdyk
Jake Gardiner
