Brian Burke adds muscle in Colton Orr
The Maple Leafs sign their first free agent according to TSN, Brian Burke has stated all along that he would like his team to get tougher and the former Ranger Colton Orr will add the muscle the team lacked last season. The Leafs signed the 27 year old Orr to a 4 year deal at $1 million per season and may spell the end of Brad May's tenure in Toronto. Colton Orr has played in 245 NHL games and tallied five points for the Rangers last season. I'm sure Burke got tired of seeing rookie Luke Schenn drop the gloves one too many times last season and Orr becomes Brian Burke's first UFA signing.
