    Marleau didn’t work out so they will try Thornton?

    Will likely be for a low AAV but why do this when they brought Spezza back? Is Thornton going to be the 3C?

    Would be sad to see him go, but he would be a great vet signing to help the young guys in TOR. Still an effective player with the right linemates, and every now and then you'll see the old Thornton come out with a ridiculous play.

    Turning out to be quite the expendables crew they're getting.

    Next up will be Chara and Justin Williams will sign with them half way through the season.

    Leafs going for it by added as many pieces old and new that they can. Not sure how they are going to keep all additions in the lineup? some will end up in the press box? Maybe they are trying to move a player like Kerfoot?

    Marleau was fine! He was just being paid $5 million to much.

    Maybe Canes can get another top 15 pick from them to take Thornton's contract off their hands.

    Spezza, Thornton and Simmonds.

    0% chance he's signed to anything remotely like that contract, but sure.

    It still amazes me the spare parts that were traded to get Thornton when he was in his prime. It might still be one of the worst trades in NHL history.
