Leafs Rumors + Sidney Crosby Update

Sidney Crosby will be skating on his own in the next Penguin's roadtrip. It's great news for all Penguins fans and Canadian hockey fans as well. However, don't expect him to play for a little while. It is promising news ,but not great news.

If the Toronto Maple Leafs make a trade within the next few days, don't be surprised. Talks about them are intensifying extremely and they are intense. Management knows that the team can't be on the bubble like that for the playoffs and don't mind making a trade. The names that are mentioned the most are Luke Schenn, Clarke McArthur, and Cody Franson. I talked with my sources and they confirmed what everyone is saying. The Leafs either want a veteran goalie or a top six forward. There were talks about a Schenn for Schenn trade ,but personally I just don't see that happening. Brayden Schenn is an elite talent with first line potential, don't get me wrong, but the Leafs still love Nazem Kadri and a Brayden Schenn type player would just take Kadri out of the equation.
