Hey, the Leafs finally did it! They made a multi-asset trade to grab immediate help! That is, if you consider a slight downgrade, retained salary, and giving up a draft pick "immediate help". In a surprise move, the Toronto Maple Leafs have traded Carl Gunnarsson and a 4th round pick for Roman Polak. Toronto will also retain $200,000 in Gunnarsson's Salary.
