Maple Leafs make a pair of blockbuster deals; Land Dion Phaneuf

7

You probably heard by now, but the Toronto Maple Leafs have shaken things up with a pair of blockbuster deals. First, the Leafs sent Niklas Hagman, Ian White, Matt Stajan, and Jamal Mayers to the Calgary Flames in exchange for Dion Phaneuf, Frederick Sjostrom, and Keith Aulie. GM Brian Burke wasn't done dealing just yet, though. About an hour after the first deal was announced, the Leafs sent Vesa Toskala and Jason Blake to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Jean-Sebastien Giguere. So, all total the Leafs sent 6 players out of Toronto and got back 4 new faces. I'd say that is a major shake-up. It will be interesting to see how this will effect the value of the Toronto picks that the Bruins own as part of the Phil Kessel deal.

Fueling the Kaberle rumors was Leafs GM Brian Burke's presence at the B's-Caps game yesterday afternoon.
