Based on what we have been told, we would be looking at a notably different roster if the Toronto Maple Leafs' plan A this summer had come to fruition. Dave Bolland would still be a Leaf, making $4.75M/year for five years, according to Darren Dreger. https://twitter.com/Hope_Smoke/status/484395392248053760 Josh Gorges would be a Leaf in exchange for Cody Franson, according to Dreger as well. https://twitter.com/Hope_Smoke/status/484396310939045889 Perhaps they would have signed Dan Boyle instead of Stephane Robidas, too, who Pierre Lebrun noted the Leafs were very serious about for days. https://twitter.com/Real_ESPNLeBrun/status/481848384995614720 From the outside, it appears the Leafs desired a defense of: Gorges - Phaneuf Gardiner - Boyle/Robidas Rielly - Polak Dave Bolland...

The online hockey world reacted to news of the hiring of an assistant GM  like it was its own version of the LeBron sweepstakes when the Leafs brought aboard young hockey executive Kyle Dubas yesterday. That’s of little shock given the Maple Leafs had become such a flashpoint in the debate on the role and place of advanced stats/analytics in hockey-ops decisions in the past year and a half -- achieving modest success for 110 games despite ghastly underlying possession numbers and then having the floor fall out from under them when their overworked number one goalie got hurt...

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed David Booth to a 1 year contract worth $1.1 million. https://twitter.com/APetrielli/status/491669971781828608 SCOUTING REPORT Assets: Has speed to burn. Can put up points in bunches and is ultra aggressive on the forecheck. Also boasts a nose for the net. Can play on either side of center, which adds to his overall value.

Career Potential:Speedy, streaky scoring winger. - The Forecaster Leafs fans might remember David Booth from when...
