May-Day! May-Day!

New Leaf Brad May, seen here punching a man who
for some reason is naked from the waist down
The Leafs have acquired Brad May, in an attempt to partially fill their glaring toughness void.

Not much to get excited about here, although he did come cheap, costing only a conditional sixth-round pick in 2010. Acquiring a veteran scrapper also clears the way to deal Jamal Mayers at the deadline for a mid-rounder (or did you think he's suddenly killing penalties on merit?)

And, of course, we all look forward to Damien Cox's predictable "OMG, Leafs once again trading draft picks for veterans" column tomorrow.

  1. Not sure I like the idea of giving up picks for a short term hole-filler, but given ice time May might at least still have a moderate amount of offense in him... not that that's what he's here for.

    This does have the potential to toughen up the Eastern Conference a bit and trigger a bit of an arms race. Could make for a few more fun games to watch..
