Shake Up in T.O. ... Isles In Town, McArdle Not

TO The Toronto Maple Leafs were quite busy today.

First, they acquire All-Star Dion Phaneuf, Fredrik Sjostrom and Keith Aulie from Calgary in exchange for Matt Stagan, Nik Hagman, Jamal Mayers and Ian White.

Then, the went to Anaheim and picked up goalie Jean-Sabastien Giguere for Vesa Toskala and Jason Blake.

So good for the Leafs.

And good for the Flames. They got yet another former Panther on their roster in Hagman.

Word on the street is they are thinking of bringing Mike Keenan back to coach, with Doug MacLean and Jacques Martin serving as assistants. Bryan Murray is also in talks to come in and run the joint.

PS: The Florida Flames come to town on Friday.

-- Speaking of being in town, the Panthers play host to the Islanders today at 4 p.m. It's a special start time because of the Pro Bowl, if you consider 4 p.m. special. It's Kids Day at The Billboard today, so bring the kids and watch other kids do grown up type stuff at the game. I know Goldie is going to get his kids involved in the broadcast, and I'm going to have a special in-game blog going with plenty of special guests.

So come on back, ya hear?

-- I will also be blogging live from the Pro Bowl after tonight's hockey game.

OK, I won't.

-- Kenndal McArdle has been sent to Rochester in order to make room for some forward who is coming back from a concussion, I believe.
