Leafs send Kubina packing to Atlanta
The Toronto Maple Leafs have sent defensemen Pavel Kubina and the rights to forward Tim Stapleton to the Atlanta Thrashers for rugged defensemen Garnet Exelby and winger Colin Stuart returning as part of the trade package. The Leafs have opened a little more room under the salary cap and look to be setting up for another move which rumours have will be Mike Komisarek signing on with the club. Burke also continues to work on signing Chris Neil as he looks to turn the Leafs into a tougher team next season.
