I like it. I was going to bring up Jason Blake as a possible 3rd line LW to get for the playoffs. I like Ponikarovsky's skill set.

Going the other way are a 2012 4th round pick and D Joe Sova - Sova looked like he had some interesting skills but he is stuck behind about 12 other guys on this team.

Not bad at all considering what we gave up. Ponikarovsky has really dipped since being in Toronto but he's still much better than almost anyone on our 3rd / 4th lines. If he can regain the form he had for the Maple Leafs then this is a steal and a half.

Yeah, Ponikarovsky is good in the corners. I think we'll see Tedenby going to the minors sooner rather than later. He's a good fit with Clarkson, I think - Ponikarovsky-Josefson-Clarkson is a pretty formidable 3rd line.

Yea. Wow. He had about 20 goals around 2 years ago. He can't be any worse than Foster!! :pray:

I remember when Burke wanted a 1st for him a few years back. Easy deal to make with little downside.

Guess that's it for Tedenby for the season.

It's a shame Tedenby didn't work out this year. If he had, we'd be able to roll 4 offensive lines once Zajac is back in the mix.

Yeah, but Josefson can make people look good on the 4th line. At the very least they won't get pinned in their own end. And if Ponikarovsky pans out we'll be rolling 3 real good lines.

In his best years with the Leafs he was a Zubrus type player with a better shot, hopefully he can get back to form and make our 3rd line more complete.

Yeah, but I kinda fear Zajac will be on the shelf for longer than the team's letting on. I want to say shut him down until April, allow him to rest and rehab, use the reg season games in April to get in shape for the playoffs and have him 100% for it.
