The Leafs did make a trio of minor (salary dump) moves:
- Winger Wade Belak to the Florida Panthers for a 5th round pick (2008)
- Defenceman Hal Gill to Pittsburgh for a 2nd round pick (2008) and a 5th rounder (2009)
- Forward Chad Kilger to Florida for a 3rd round pick (2008)
Woo-hoo! Better start mapping out the parade route along Yonge Street - the Cup's ours! Meantime, players like McCabe, Kaberle, Tucker and Raycroft (and their ridiculous contracts) will continue to keep the franchise mired in mediocrity (or worse). Time to start shopping around for a playoff team to cheer for. For the next few years, probably.
