Leafs Sign ANOTHER Swedish Player.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed a swedish forward today and his name is Rickard Wallin. He as well as Gustavsson gets a 1 year contract. Wallin was originally drafted by Pheonix in the 6th round of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. Now the joke from leaf fans everywhere is that another minor league affiliate should be set up in Sweden because that is where most of thier prospects are coming from right now. I think this is another good signing, no real risk here but I think that Brian Burke may be a bit of a risk taker and that is ok.
