Rumours have abound that the Leafs arn't done. With how thin they are upfront, I could see them making a deal, but the Rangers would have to sweeten the deal due to Kotalik's bad contract.

To Toronto: Kotalik, 2nd rounder

To New York: Exelby.

Makes a lot of sense for Toronto. I don't know about the Rangers.

Kotalik may have a bad contract but Exelby is a UFA this summer and the Leafs need offensive help. It depends how much they value Kotalik. Kotalik's contract is only considered to be horrible based on his play this season. This offseason it was debated back & forth by many and there were just as many who thought it was a decent signing and those who thought it wasn't. Just my 2 cents

Who in their right mind would trade for this guy? Same was said of Gomez however.

Sather must have some seriously damaging photos of opposing GM's. Thank god Garth Snow's already hit the internet.

+1

Kotalik gets out-muscled by smaller players regularly. He can't win a 1-on-1 battle, even if he has an advantage in position.

He's too stupid to find shooting areas on the ice. He doesn't move well. Doesn't pass well. His shot is heavy, but it misses the net more often than anything.

What an embarrassment he's been to the Rangers uniform.

I could see Edmonton being a player because of the success he had there. Also, they are just awful, maybe he would give them something.

Players OK. Second rounder, not unless Burke takes Redden to send him to the minors.

Brooks has updated the story via Twitter stating that "Rangers tentaive deal to move Kotalik fell through due to complications". We'll just have to wait and see what happens now.

Possible "complications":

1. Sather remembers he had drunkenly agreed to give Kotalik a NMC. (speaking of which - anyone have details on that?)

2. Torts and company just wanted to **** with Brooks.

The just talked about it on the NYR broadcast. Kotalik has gone to NY to mull over whether he'll accept the trade.

NTC = the complication it appears.

The Rangers sent him home because "it wasn't working" according to Michelletti just now. If they sent everyone home whom it wasn't working for, there would be more players on the bus headed home than there would be on the way to the game. More selective Tortorella enforcement. You're going to send Kotalik home, but Wade Redden and Chris Drury still get to represent this club?

What do u think?
we need to get something that has actual worth to us back.

thats trading UFA's for Kotalik. It's a good deal only if you think Kotalik has a positive value, which he doesnt.

we need a 3rd maybe even a 2nd to do that deal.
