Has anyone else heard about this?

Sarge:
First I've heard of it. Green is probably better that Liles but with Liles already in the fold, I'm not sure if there would be a fit. Factor Franson in the mix and Green (while really good offensively) is somewhat redundant - no? I call BS for now.

Looking at the "author's" history on that particular fan-contribution based "news" site, and, well, it's full of Eklund level crap, so . . .

THis is my favourite segment of one of his articles so far, from two weeks ago:

--- Quote ---Burke still has some work ahead of him as the Maple Leafs still have several overpaid veterans who are hurting the team with salary cap restrictions.

Toronto will need to make some moves either by trade or releasing players to keep the team under the cap and names like Joffrey Lupol, Matt Lombardi, James Reimer, and Tim Connolly all could be on the trading block over the next month.

Yup, in order to get under the cap (which the Leafs are already under with only Schenn needing to be signed and there being more than enough room to fit him in), Reimer (the team's de facto starting goalie), Connolly (the team's newly signed 1st line centre), Lupul (one of the team's few "proven" top 6 wingers) and Lombardi (who may never play again and will, in essence, not count against the cap if the Leafs are pressing against the ceiling) are all on the trading block. That's deep and probing insider information. ;D
