The Leafs are making it pretty clear they don't want any part of Jared Cowen. First, they activated him from the injured reserve, then immediately placed him on waivers. Today, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman said that the Leafs are looking to shop their new acquisition to teams around the league, ideally before Monday's deadline.

Since September we’ve been beating the dead horse of how the Leafs are going to set the rental market at the trade deadline. We’re already seeing it, we could see more of it, but if the Phaneuf deal was any indication, dumping rentals isn’t the only thing the Leafs are looking to do.
The Leafs have a number of players that could be attractive options to other teams. There are some good contracts at reasonable cap hits, and reasonable term that should get some consideration.

Sometimes, what you get out of life doesn't always equal the effort you put into it. The Toronto Marlies can definitely attest to this tonight, as an overwhelming effort against the Hershey Bears turned into a rare multi-goal loss and just their tenth regulation defeat of the season. Despite outshooting the Caps affiliate 39-20, the end result was a 5-2 final.

The Leafs wasted no time picking a course of action for Jared Cowen this afternoon, placing him on waivers while also loaning Richard Clune back to the Toronto Marlies.
