I'm sure his daughter Tess will enjoy Disneyland.

And I'm sure the Croz is happy to see he in the West.

What???

A member of the all-glorious Leafs traded for (basically) a bag of pucks and a used 'strap?

Is Lord Irk back ????

Burkie would never make this trade. He brought Steckle to To***to and he's never wrong you know.

If you don't believe me just ask him.

Not surprising. Great grinder, excellent on faceoffs. Boudreau has always been a fan, told McPhee to get him when he was first hired.

I'm asleep at the wheel, I never made the Boudreau connection. Makes lots of sense now.

Looking at his stats it's a good thing he's a grinder.

The Irked One's fingerprints are all over this trade. Let's not forget how his enormous ability to recognize talent was on full display when he drafted Steckel.
