The Toronto Maple Leafs made another minor move on Tuesday that didn’t get much news thanks to the Kris Versteeg deal, shipping a conditional seventh round draft pick (read: basically nothing) to Anaheim in exchange for tough-guy forward and pending free agent Aaron Voros.

It’s an odd trade, for a couple of reasons.

So Tomas Kaberle has told GM Brian Burke that Boston may be a potentially favourable location if he's ultimately dealt. How generous of him.

Let me see if I’ve got this straight, Joffrey Lupul. You have played a grand total of 41 shifts and just over 33 minutes in a Toronto Maple Leafs uniform and you are already shooting off your mouth about how other players in the NHL should play. Is that right? After a fight on Saturday night with Canadiens’ rookie defenceman PK Subban, you weren’t happy when PK didn’t remove his helmet in a timely fashion. “It’s a pretty standard move when you both have visors on to take them off and go,” you said. Here’s a good idea, Joffrey…perhaps you might want to shut up!
