Jamal Mayers Joins Maple Leafs in Trade


Uncle Cliffy has pulled of a trade on the eve of the 2008 NHL draft.  We've given up a third round pick to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Jamal Mayers, a 33-year old who scored 12 goals and added 15 assists with 91 penalty minutes in 80 games last season.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Uncle Cliffy supposed to avoid players in their 30s?  Wouldn't we be better off building with our 3rd rounder in this deep draft?

I hear nice things about Torontonian Jamal Mayers, but he's on the downside of a lengthy career.  Let's get serious about rebuilding here, Cliffy.  Don't you dare trade our #7 overall for a guy with one eye on his Muskoka cottage!
