See you, Stemper.

Per an ESPN text message that just made me fall off of the couch (and possibly killed my first day of Thanksgiving Break), the Leafs have acquired Stempniak for D man Carlo Colaiacovo and F Alex Steen. He's a 40 point a year kid, and he's a former first rounder. Aside from the 2006-2007 year, Stemp is not. It's an upgrade, but I'll miss Stemp - best of luck in Toronto. Tell Mayers we said hi.

I guess this was necessary. For a laugh, check out who is currently out:
D. Hinote RW Nov 14, 2008 Injured Reserve Lower-body Injury
P. Kariya LW Nov 6, 2008 Injured Reserve Lower-body Injury
T. Oshie C Nov 2, 2008 Injured Reserve High Ankle Sprain
D. King LW Oct 18, 2008 Injured Reserve Shoulder Surgery
E. Johnson D Sep 23, 2008 Injured Reserve Torn Right ACL And MCL

Fun on a stick. Toss in Berglund with a groin strain, day to day. At least our call-ups are doing well. And snagging Crombeen, a Blues legacy, off of waivers from Dallas seems to be working out ok for us. Like Manny said, we're blue collar right now. Blue collar with a 2 game win streak going. Here's to keeping that running... we're on Vs. Tuesday night against the Preds. Good timing, since the Thrash at Leafs game isn't ON TV (thanks, SportSouth! You ROCK!).
