Kozun Traded to Leafs – Vey/Pearson Down, Schultz/Toffoli Up
Not QUITE the deal Kings fans were looking for…
Kozun wasn’t going to surpass Vey, or even Weal, who was looking like he was next in line. The Leafs certainly like dealing with the Kings and they got a much needed center. A short one, but a much needed one.
In return, the Kings acquire Andrew Crescenzi who will likely never play in the NHL ever.
I’m a bit surprised Lombardi couldn’t only get a jock strap in return for a proven (albeit minor league) scorer
I guess Darryl Sutter wasn’t impresses with Linden Vey and Tanner Pearson last night as both were shipped back to Manchester and in return, the Kings recall Tyler Toffoli and Jeff Schultz (thank GOD! Can we PLEASE rest Muzzin a few games?)
