After much speculation Mats Sundin has exercised his no trade clause and remains a Leaf. Sundin stated that he wants to win a cup but only in Toronto. Cliff Fletcher seemed somewhat although understanding seemed a bit perturbed with his 5 untouchables. Sundin, Kaberle, McCabe, Tucker and Kubina all were rumored to have excercised their veto rights.

01Anton Stralman Originally drafted in the 7th round - 216th overall in the 2005 entry draft, Anton made huge strides last year, and appears to be another late round gem for the Maple Leafs. Anton played 25 minutes plus in the Sweedish Elite League and has been compared to Nik Lidstrom. Comparisons like those can be a little difficult to live up to. I'm sure Leaf fans would be happy if the youngster turned into another Tomas Kaberle. Like Kaberle, Stralman has been described as smooth skating, and also been praised for his decision making ability and all-around skill level. Sounds like Leaf fans have something to look forward to.
