Maple Leafs In On Getzlaf?
If the Ryan Getzlaf NHL Trade Rumor accurate and he truly is available for the right price there is talk the Toronto Maple Leafs could be interested. As far as Damien Cox of the Toronto Star is concerned, Getzlaf is exactly the type of guy the General Manager of the Maple Leafs fancies.
Cox says “While slumping badly this season, the 26-year-old Getzlaf is precisely the big, tough centre that Brian Burke has coveted but been unable to land since taking over in Toronto. Burke knows the player well from Anaheim’s 2007 Stanley Cup championship, the timing now would fit the Leaf General Manager’s preference of making big deals well in advance of the winter trade deadline and Getzlaf would certainly also fit the pattern of players who appeared to run out of steam in other cities coming to Toronto and finding the atmosphere reinvigorating.”
