Leafs Acquire Tomas Plekanec from Canadiens

The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired centre Tomas Plekanec and AHL forward Kyle Baun from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for defender Rinat Valiev, winger Kerby Rychel, and a 2018 second-round pick.

My oldest son tells me this is a good deal for the Leafs. Plekanec will be our fourth line centre and should be an upgrade on Dominic Moore. He's a veteran presence on a very young team and didn't cost us a heck of a lot.
