Are you happy with the deals so far?
Justin Fisher: I think the Leafs have done an excellent job so far leading up to the deadline, and that was before they miraculously managed to unload David Clarkson. I have nothing against the guy, but it's obvious he wasn't playing well here and that his contract was an unbelievably painful burden to a cap team like Toronto. They Leafs have added a first, second and fourth round pick as well as prospect Brendan Leipsic for three pending free agents. You can't really do much better than that.
Jon Steitzer: I am as happy as I can be by Leafs trades in the middle of a tear down. Clarkson is gone. The biggest mistake has been corrected, this is a beautiful thing. The Sekera return was much nicer than what Franson/Santorelli returned, but I'm still happy. As much as I'd love for the pick in the Winnik deal to be a 2015 2nd, I like next year's draft too. If I have a complaint it's that the Leafs retained salary on Winnik meaning they can only do one more salary retention deal this season.

they’d had a 6’1”, 200 pound weight lifted off their shoulders, the Leafs took
their streak to two in a 3-2 win against the Flyers at the ACC Thursday night.
Not for lack of trying, the Flyers out-shot the Leafs by more than 3:1, but still couldn't make it happen and were sent packing.

We didn't know it at the time but this is the LAST podcast we did with David Clarkson as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Fun times!
On this episode, the guys look at the Winnik trade and more, the upcoming deadline, and Jack Eichel.
