Chris Johnston of Sportsnet is reporting that Colin Greening has joined the Leafs in Edmonton and is practicing with the team.
The 29-year-old winger is expected to practice with the NHL team in Edmonton on Wednesday afternoon after being acquired from Ottawa in the nine-player Dion Phaneuf blockbuster.
With Lupul, Matthias, Bozak, and van Riemsdyk all out, the Leafs are probably wise to bring in an additional forward and do so without disrupting the Marlies any further.

Now that we've seen a significant contract head out the door, I feel reinvigorated about this series. The Leafs clearly aren't only looking at moving their rentals, they're thinking big picture, and one of those big picture moves could be shipping out Jonathan Bernier.

This is a lot to take in, let's get going on this.

Hello there. It’s me, your internet friend Jon. You know what I haven’t talked you about in a while that still bothers me to no end?
That’s right, it’s Joffrey Lupul’s contract. That untradeable, unmoveable, buyout resistant mess that Leafs inherited from the all-knowing Brian Burke. The deal where he decided that the guy who was an All-Star while on Phil Kessel’s line and has chronic back issues (amongst various other injuries) needed to be locked up long term and at a price that would require him to repeat his career year well into his mid-30s for it to even remotely pan out.
That’s what I’m writing about again today, but this time with a little less frustration, and little more hope, because maybe, just maybe, there’s an end in sight.
