Not a bad pickup at all even if it's only for one season...HOWEVER; I hope Fergie doesn't stop there.....I'd still like to see the Leafs pickup someone better than Klee for our blueline.

Klee should be a solid addition.

Nice surprise, as I did not see this coming.

So far so good for Fergie.......He's gotten us Nieuwendyk and Klee.....I have a sneaky hunch that he's not finsihed just yet.

Fantastic signing. Klee is a good guy, although slightly dirty, but oh well, he's good anyways!

Nobody will like to play the Leafs this season.

Defense pairings are not the same as the depth charts. Renberg plays on the top line fairly often, but isn't a top three forward on this team at all.

I don't know about that. Reports say they've been trying to sign Klee for a while but he was unwilling to sign a deal for under 2 years since he didn't want to uproot his family.

Besides, McCabe's supposedly right on schedule. At least, according to what they were saying on LeafsTV a few days ago. Who knows if something has happened, but I wouldn't look much into it.

OK....I can see your reasoning there.....that makes sense to pair those two up together.

I like the signing espescially at only 1 yr, it's a good fit and Klee is a solid 2nd pairing guy.

Gives us a fairly solid defence corp 1-6, no huge holes but no standouts either. Reminds me a little of Philly's defence from last season in that respect.

Kaberle - McCabe
Klee - Jackman
Marchment - Berg
Pushor

And remember that Pilar could be back soon as well, although he now has next to no leverage on any contract negotiations. Id still like to see one of the young guys given a shot if they're ready. Perhaps Ferguson feels that none of them are, and if that's the case then fine. We certainly seem to have some good depth at every position now anyway.

Signing Klee prudent

It's a good sign.It shows fergie knows the defense is this teams achilles heel and that they wont be rushing the young guys who arent ready.If mccabe was/is badly injured, our depth would have been woeful.I agree with allowing the likes of hedin,kondratiev,pilar,covo etc prove they are ready.We are now a top 2 defenseman away from being a contender.This must be a now or never team.Belfour is 40,mogilny,roberts,renberg,nieuwendyk etc are on their last years and sundin ,nolan aint getting any younger.Its win now or never for this team.After the strike we will have plenty of young defenseman now ready for the nhl:Hedin,kondratiev,pilar,covo,harrison.With roberts,reichel,mogilny,nieuwendyk,belfour all on expiring contracts the leafs should have lots of money to go land some superstars(ufa).

Ya that's the pairing I like best....McCabe-Kaberle....why break up something that we know already works?

I'm very curious to see what's going to happen next, actually. I think, with the acquisition of Klee, Berg is pretty much gone. It's sad, really. He has the size, speed and skill to be a top defenseman, but he's never been able to put it together. Doubtful he ever will. I was hoping he would break out this season, but with the number of defensemen along with the players starting to pass him on the depth chart I think his time as a Maple Leaf is coming to an end.

I agree with you there but who do you think would want to have Aki Berg on their hockey club?

I would like to see Ferguson and Quinn give Kondratiev or Coliacovo a chance to play alongside Klee. Or, barring the inclusion of one of the rookies, I think that Klee might allow Jackman to be a little more offensive than he was last year -- which was always his strong suit. They could make a decent second-pairing with Klee playing anchor. Both can skate, can hit, and have a little bit of a mean streak. They could make a very nice pair.
