Maple Leafs and Evan Rodrigues‘ camp talking Pierre LeBrun: Have been told that the Toronto Maple Leafs and Evan Rodrigues’ reps have held “productive talks.” If he doesn’t reach a deal, Rodrigues is owed a $2 million qualifying offer by October 7th or he’d become an unrestricted free agent. Not sure if they’ll be able to reach a deal but it would have to come in lower than the $2 million for the Maple Leafs. Panthers are a dark horse for Alex Pietrangelo Pierre LeBrun of The Athl

Teams like the New Jersey Devils and Ottawa Senators are on easy living because they have to spend up. They have tons of space and can make deci
