UPDATE: Kubina – Thrashers Finally Done

    by -

    Official Deal: Kubina + Tim Stapleton for Garnet Exelby + Colin Stuart.

    Turns out it’s Garnet Exelby + a few other parts coming back. Looks to be a salary cap clearance more than anything for something bigger… Burke’s expected to make a major push for Komisarek now as reported here earlier.

    Exelby’s a tough customer and a Canadian boy. The theme continues….

    The Leafs gain $2 million in cap space in the exchange.
