Leafs acquire Mayers

The Leafs have acquired Jamal Myers from the Blues in exchange for a third round pick.

So... Who had "June 20" in the "When will the Leafs start trading decent picks for 33-year-old fourth liners" pool?

The only good news here is that Mayers brings some sandpaper, meaning we may be on our way back to building a team that's at least a little bit tough to play against. That's something. The Leafs desperately need somebody to throw over the boards if things get out of hand. Is Mayers that guy? I suppose he is now, by default.

Still... no more trading picks, Cliff. Stop it.


  1. Meet the new boss... same as the old boss.

  2. I've watched 4 youtube fights with Mayers:
    vs. Crowe(SJ): pretty bad. he gets rag-dolled
    vs. Tootoo(Nsh): call this one a draw
    vs. Baranaby(Chi) and vs. Drake(Det) both easy victories for Mayers.
    So it seems he's not a real heavyweight, but idiots like Baranaby and Dallas Drake will foolishly take him on. Hmmm...

  3. Who hasn't beaten Matthew Barnaby? I never played in the NHL and I'm pretty sure I wiped the floor with him a few times.
