Mats knew what he was doing. He knew that his leaving and bringing Jeff Carter or some other youngster as well as draft picks and leaving a poorer team that would end up in a lottery pick and a shot at Stamkos wasn't what the organization needed. They need Cody Hodgson.
He is, in the words of Bob Mackenzie, a "minor hockey teammate of Steve Stamkos and Michael Del Zotto". Rumour is that he also delivered papers to somebody famous too.
So Leaf fans, are you sure you want to cheer on your team this Thursday against the Sens because if you win and move down to the 10th pick then you'll lose out on the Cody Hodgson sweepstakes and end up stuck with somebody crappy.
