Leafs add another veteran forward for another potential pump-and-dump at the deadline. The Maple Leafs made a low-risk bet at the bottom end of their lineup today, signing Shawn Matthias to a one-year deal worth $2.3 million. Matthias is a 27-year old Brampton, Ontario native who played last season with the Vancouver Canucks. He was acquired by the Canucks the previous season from the Florida Panthers in the Roberto Luongo trade, who had previously acquired him in 2007 from the Detroit Red Wings in the Todd Bertuzzi trade. The Red Wings originally drafted Matthias in the 2nd round of the 2006 draft. Matthias has developed into a useful depth forward, and scored 18 goals and 2

July 1st marked the first day of free agency for the 2015 NHL off season and it produced some fireworks. Before grading the Maple Leafs’ free agency moves, the Toronto Maple Leafs made a franchise altering move. On July 1st, 2015, the Toronto Maple Leafs traded their best player, Phil Kessel, to the Pittsburgh Penguins. In exchange the Leafs received Kasperi Kapanen, Scott Harrington, Nick Spaling in addition to a first and third round pick in 2016. Along with Kessel the Leafs sent Tim Erixon, former first round bust Tyler Biggs and a 2016 second round pick to the Penguins. The Leafs also agreed to retain 1.25 million of Kessel’s salary.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Shawn Matthias to a one-year contract worth $2.3 million.   It’s a little surprising Matthias could only garner a one-year commitment in free agency given he finished tied for third on the Canucks in goals last season (18). On the other hand, Willie Desjardins used him sparingly, as The post Toronto Maple Leafs sign Shawn Matthias to one-year deal worth $2.3 million appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

Another worthy, low-risk free agent, another short-term deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Forward Shawn Matthias, formerly of the Vancouver Canucks, agreed to a one-year, $2.3-million contract with Toronto, the club announced Monday morning. It's officially the summer of moneypuck in Toronto. — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) July 6, 2015 The 27-year-old forward, who can play both centre and wing, quietly enjoyed a stellar season in Vancouver, a team too tight on cap space to keep him in the fold. Matthias’ career-high 18 goals in 2014-15 ranked third among all Canucks, a mark he reached playing bottom-six minutes and without the benefit of power-play looks. Plus, he stayed o

View image | gettyimages.com Watching the Maple Leafs next season is likely going to be a grind. The team should be vastly improved defensively under Mike Babcock, but the personnel just isn't there to finish, and things now appear particularly bleak with Phil Kessel shipped out of town. The way things look now, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Leafs push the puck in the right direction more than they have these last few years - Arcobello, Parenteau, and the return of Winnik should help there - but they'll be on the wrong end of some frustrating losses with such little star-power. If they want to take a stab at replacing some of Kessel's offense, however, there is one free agent

Toronto Maple Leafs trump free-agency day by dealing Phil Kessel to Pittsburgh … – National Post http://t.co/dgEL8pqvqV — TM Leafs Tweet (@TMLeafsTweet) July 5, 2015 “Phil Kessel has been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins” This was the headline that blared across the hockey universe last Wednesday. The Toronto Maple Leafs traded away the prolific-scoring Kessel, and their hopes of contending for a Stanley Cup sooner rather than later. On the other hand, the Penguins are poised to contend immediately, having added what may be the key they need to contend for the Cup.
