Warhippy Posted September 27, 2015 Share Posted September 27, 2015 http://www.tsn.ca/could-maple-leafs-be-in-play-for-zajac-1.367408 Could Travis Zajac be heading to the Toronto Maple Leafs? According to Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger in New Jersey, the Leafs and Devils may have a trade on the table that would send the 30-year-old centre to Toronto. It is believed, Chere writes, that Maple Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello is discussing several potential trade scenarios with Devils GM Ray Shero, including centre Nazem Kadri as a potential piece of a trade or a package deal that includes winger James van Riemsdyk. Zajac is entering the third year of an eight-year, $46 million contract. He has five years and $31.75 million remaining on his deal with a cap hit of $5.75 million. The Winnipeg native was drafted by Lamoriello's Devils in 2004 with the 20th overall pick and has spent his entire career with the Devils. Through nine seasons in New Jersey, he's registered 348 points in 625 games. Last season, he scored 11 goals and added 14 assists in 74 games. ====================================================== Trading JVR or Kadri in any sort of a deal for a $5.75 million Zajac with 5 years left on that contract...wow. Seriously wow. I thought the Leafs were turning a corner on selling youth for large contracts that did nothing to help the team. Guess i was wrong. Part of me, for the good of the league hopes the Leafs don't do this because their team needs to not do this nonsense for the sake of their future But another part of me is like LOL go head, do whatcha gotta idiots Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
