I expect Gus to end up like Hiller did for Burke in ANA.

Euro goalie brought in as a UFA, signed to an ELC, extended, become a starter, sign longterm.

MAPLE LEAFS SET TO INK FINNISH GOALIE JUSSI RYNNAS

Finnish free agent goaltending prospect Jussi Rynnas, who attracted a lot of interest amongst NHL teams this season, has chosen Toronto as his destination.

The Maple Leafs are expected to finalize the two year, two-way contract with the goaltender later today.

The 22-year-old Rynnas is slated to play in the Maple Leafs' minor league system next season.

''In situations like this, you tell them about the positives of your organization and you're honest with them and you let them decide,'' Dallas Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk told The Dallas Morning News. ''He decided Toronto was best for him.''

The Stars, Flyers, Canadiens, Coyotes and Leafs were all thought to be pursuing the young netminder.

Lol. What they should have done is keep the other young Finnish goalie they drafted. Tukka Rask!

But then again, I sounded off on how stupid that was back when it happened.

But hey, he was worth trading for Raycroft, right?

The thing that made the Rask deal incredibly stupid, and many forget, is that Raycroft was coming off two surgeries.

Not only that, but Boston was in a tight spot with the emergence of Tim Thomas & the solid play of Hannu Toivenen.

So Boston had a 3 goalie logjam and Raycroft was their 3rd string in the last yr of his deal.

Of course JFJ pays a premium, dealing the 2nd goaltender taken of that draft, and the only 1 in the first round aside from Carey Price whom many thought Rask the equivalent.

DREGER: NONIS EXPECTED TO SIGN EXTENSION WITH MAPLE LEAFS

While Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik's search for a chief executive officer continues, the list of candidates for the vacant general managers job has dropped by one.

Sources close to the Toronto Maple Leafs tell TSN Dave Nonis, the Leafs vice president of hockey operations has pulled himself out of the running for the Lightning job.

Toronto is expected to announce Nonis has agreed to an extension with the Maple Leafs that will take him off the market through the 2011-2012 season.

I don't understand why he would re-sign with Toronto....I guess job security.

MAPLE LEAFS OFFICIALLY NAME PHANEUF THEIR NEW CAPTAIN

TORONTO -- General manager Brian Burke knew right away that Dion Phaneuf would be a great choice to be the next captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Phaneuf was acquired last January in a blockbuster trade with the Calgary Flames and immediately made an impact. The strapping blue-liner threw his weight around, dropped the gloves when needed and soaked up plenty of minutes.

He also gave the team a vocal presence on the ice and in the dressing room.

"Our practices -- it was like going to a church service before he got here," Burke said. "You'd go a whole practice and no one would yell at anyone, no one would yell for the puck."

The Leafs liked Phaneuf's communication skills and also felt he had the set of traits that they wanted in a team captain. Head coach Ron Wilson made it official by giving him the C on Monday afternoon.

"As soon as he came in he had a major impact on our room," Wilson said. "I think it was obvious to everybody."

Phaneuf, a 25-year-old Edmonton native, said he learned a lot from Flames captain Jarome Iginla when they were teammates. He added he hopes to follow the example set by Iginla and former NHL captains Mark Messier, Scott Stevens and Wendel Clark.

"You look at how they play the game and how they lead," Phaneuf said. "I think the best way to lead is you don't have to be the loudest guy but you definitely want to be the guy who's working the hardest day in and day out.

"That's what I'm going to bring to our team. I want to be known as the guy who works the hardest."

Burke said he liked how Phaneuf would 'bark' at guys on the ice and give them encouragement or instruction.

"We had such a quiet group and the first day Dion got here, there was a dramatic difference," Burke said. "Because once one guy starts talking, then other guys start talking. I think it made a huge difference in how we played and practised."

Toronto hasn't had a captain since Mats Sundin left the team in the summer of 2008. Phaneuf becomes the 18th captain of the Maple Leafs and the 22nd in the history of the Toronto franchise.

Phaneuf had 10 points (2-8) in 26 games for the Leafs last season. He had 34 penalty minutes and averaged over 26 minutes of ice time a game. Overall, he finished with 32 points (12-20) in 81 games.

Burke said he liked how Phaneuf doesn't hesitate to voice his opinion -- even with the GM. He recalled one conversation shortly after Phaneuf's arrival last season.

"He thought we got pushed around in a game and came right out of the dressing room and barked at me on the way to the weight room: 'We need some bigger forwards in here,' and kept walking," Burke said. "I haven't had too many guys bark at me like that. I didn't mind it and he's right. We do need some bigger forwards."

Teammates Luke Schenn, Phil Kessel and Tyler Bozak were also on hand for the announcement. Schenn said Phaneuf is not afraid to give players a "kick in the butt" if they need it.

"I think that's a good thing in a captain," Schenn said. "A guy you can relate to and talk to but at the same time, not afraid to give it to you if he knows that you can be better."

Phaneuf leads all NHL defencemen in goals (77), power-play goals (48), game-winning goals (22) and shots (1237) since entering the league in 2005-06.

Wilson said he's confident that Phaneuf is the right choice for the honour.

"When we actually picked up Dion, that was something that we talked about -- here's a potential captain candidate," Wilson said. "We have a few on our team and when we saw how Dion affected positively the attitude in our room, the attitude at the practice facility, how he integrated himself into the community and did all the little detail things that you would expect from a captain, to me it was a no-brainer."

Notes: Former captains Clark, George Armstrong and Darryl Sittler were also in attendance. ... It was the team's first news conference at the new Real Sports Bar & Grill, located across the road from the Air Canada Centre.

They are the exact same as the CCM jerseys.

What they did with the 1st RBK ones was make it barebones. (and fucking ugly..like a nightgown)

Basically set up a cash grab for now by finally adding the shoulder patch and bottom stripes back.

Assholes.

They brought back the two horizontal stripes around the waist which have been absent for the past three seasons. The veined Leaf logo is now a shoulder patch like it was from 1992 to 2000. They have also added a string lace collar to replace the V-shaped collar and the lettering and numbers are single layered again, without an outside trim.

There is no more silver in the Jersey which is great...now Detroit isn't the only two colour jersey anymore.
