A bag of pucks, a new sled, and a bad contract.

Maybe two bad contracts that run out sooner.

Blake is due some credit as he has picked up his game of late, but alas his contract isn't too appealing. So he would have to be dealt for another bad cap hit.

I'd suggest something like this...(but I doubt my fellow Leaf fans would agree)


Blake, White

for

Dawes, Redden, 2nd in 09




Blake has a cap hit of 4mil for the next 3 years (his actually salary drops to 3 mil in the last 2 years) while Redden is dues 6.5 (cap hit) for the next 4 years.

So in essence we are taking on a salary dump, sending some money their way as well. So they add the 2nd in make it beneficial for us.

Can't see it happening though as Redden makes too much money for too long and I thought I heard that Burke will take on salary but for this year only. (I could be mistaken)

HELLS NO!!! That contract of Reddens is a no-go for this guy. Id rather keep Blake for 3 years after this season than pay redden for 5 more years.

I know what you mean. But wouldn't it be something if Redden came back to form with the Leafs? Very risky I know....

Considering it would likely cost Toronto something for another team to take him, we are much better off keeping him and seeing if he can continue his current play.

Are you serious? Blake's contract is ten times better then Redden's. The bigger difference is that Blake is useful. They send us a second to balance it out. Man wake up. They would be sending multiple firsts to even consider this. His contract kills the Rangers for a long time to come. Let them keep him. Not to mention I'd keep White over Dawes. You essentially have us trading the better pieces all to get a 2nd round pick.

In the future post this on the leafs boards. There is no need to post this on the main boards and within an hour you'll see why. Slow down the thread starting and get a feel for things.

Yeah, Blake is the least of the Leaf's problems. If they have to deal him for nothing they may as well keep him, he's playing like he's worth 4 mil this year at any rate. It's not like we spend to the salary cap anyways.

I hope to never see Redden in a Leafs Jersey.

I hated Blake from the start, but his recent play makes me think we actually might be able to get rid of this guy.

I'm a fan of Redden's old game. I'd love to have that if it was possible for him to get it back. We got the money.....

Again like I mentioned, I can't see it happening. I was just trying to come up with some sort of way for us to dump Blake.

Are you kidding? The cost isn't the problem, its the term. He likely won't be as effective in a couple of years when the contract is winding down. Any player who can put up 50+ points is worth at least 3-mil, and likely more. 4 mil a year isn't too bad for what he does.

it would destroy our team, and our cap ...on the semo-bright side, it would prob get us a few #1 overall picks (because we wouldnt be able to afford any decent forwards) that we wouldnt be able to keep because Redden would be making all the $$ that would be needed to resign them

Yeah well it ain't old Redden and hasn't been for some time. The Rangers have made a huge mistake with him. You don't dump a salary by getting one's that's worse. Blake's contract doesn't affect any future signings but Redden's certainly will. How does aquiring a contract that costs us 2.5 million more a year and lasts a year longer for a player that is less useful help in any way? It won't happen because Burke isn't an idiot.
