Good morning Steve Thomas. We hear the Maple Leafs want you back for a third term in Toronto. Just how far back does this 42-year-old go in Maple Leafs lore? Well, his first stint with the Leafs ended in a trade for Al Secord.
Do you think Thomas is a good fit? Where will he play? Sure, he's no Teemu Selanne, but if the salary fits... Click the comments link below and let us know if adding "Stumpy" is a good idea.
Meanwhile, Todd Bertuzzi was on the ice yesterday at Team Canada's Olympic training camp and that Steve Moore thing just isn't going away. Fans in Denver continue to weigh in, but it looks like it's the signing if Brad May that's got them upset more than Bertuzzi's return.
Around the league:
The Penguins just weren't satisfied, were they? Crosby, Palffy, Gonchar, Thibault and now the team has added 36-year-old John LeClair to the mix yesterday. If anyone's picking the most improved team, we'd advise you start in Pittsburgh.
In Phoenix, ex-Leaf Curtis Joseph continues to draw interest. (Thomas, LeClair, Joseph - guess the old guys can still play!)
In Detroit, Chris Osgood and Manny Legace have a message for fans who don't think the tag-team between the pipes will work: Peace and love... and hopefully a whole lot of saves.
The Islanders are Alexi Yashin's team now. The second highest player in the NHL certainly had his share of critics in his own dressing room - but those players are gone, and there are high hopes with Miroslav Satan skating as the wingman. They might not be Trottier and Bossy, but there's a lot of goals in there.
