Report: The Toronto Maple Leafs are interested in signing Tim Kennedy

http://www.wivb.com/dpp/sports/sabre...er-Tim-Kennedy

Quote:
BUFFALO (WIVB) - Tim Kennedy is ready to move on from the disappointment of his ugly departure from the Sabres. Sources tell News 4 Sports that three teams are interested in signing the forward.

The Blackhawks, Oilers and Maple Leafs are vying for the services of the gritty, tough and talented left wing. Kennedy was bought-out by the Sabres last week, in a salary dispute based on Kennedy's $1 million dollar arbitration ruling.

Signing with the Blackhawks would allow Kennedy to play with his childhood friend and South Buffalo native Patrick Kane. They grew up in the same neighborhood and played hockey together has youngsters.

Signing with Toronto would keep Kennedy in the WNY area. and close to his family friends that enjoyed watching him play in Buffalo.

Kennedy's agent, Allain Roy, did not repond to News 4 Sports request for comment.

A decision by Kennedy on one of those three teams could come this week.

The leafs are already at 49 contracts, that leaves one left to sign either Kennedy or D'mago. Who will Burke choose?

Likely TML/EDM, don't see Chicago being a possibility. But would be a welcome addition.

Why couldn't we have just plucked him from waivers, then?

Maybe he just wanted more money.

So I guess you're assuming he takes less than what Buffalo offered him. We don't need anymore small forwards anyways.

I wouldn't mind, don't know where he would fit in our bottom 6 though.

Hopefully he brings some compromising pictures of Ryan Miller.

He wouldnt be in our bottom 6, he's too small (5'9) if hes here its in a top 6 role.

Or he trades some away. Does anyone have a list of players that the Leafs have under contract?

EDIT: Never mind. Got the list from capgreek.com

Those are some very ugly lines. I guess we're aiming for dead last.

If we sign Kennedy man we'll be challening the smurfs for having the smallest top 6 core in the league

Kulemin(6'2) Bozak (6'1) Kessel (6'0)
Kennedy (5'9) Grabo (5'10) Steeg (5'10)

to get into a contender team for a cheaper price, i think he is sold, and yes i think burke is looking for a big forward eitherway.

I had a feeling we might have gone after him once he was bought-out.

I highly doubt he would even get a sniff at top 6. He should be on the 3rd line at best.

Personally, I hope we don't sign him.

I suspect that Burke would want him on a 2-way contract but he wouldn't sign a 2-way deal with Buffalo to avoid arbitration, so I don't know if we could get him signed.

Chicago would be a good fit. Also, the Leafs are pushing themselves to the contract limit so I don't know how much of a chance he has without other bodies moving out (that is...if Hanson is to be signed).
