Grabner Traded To Leafs

As I have written previously, too many forwards on this team and the Isles were bound to make a trade. Beck has some NHL experience but is a project. Matt Finn maybe headed to Bridgeport, but is a 2nd round pick in 2012. Gibson is an AHL goalie with some upside. Nilsson is another AHL defenseman who needs work and his size will be an issue. Verhaeghe is another young prospect who can play center and should make his AHL debut this year.

So basically a few Toronto Marlies for Michael Grabner, who when healthy may provide +25 goals and help with the Leafs penalty kill. I’ll get into more details when I look up each player, but for now Garth has restocked the cupboard.
