I won't lie... I'm pretty psyched that there's more people in this group than just me!
It's great to see Ian has some supporters here on LJ. Makes me smile :D

Anyway, I haven't been on here to update for a while (in fact, it may have been the first or second round of the playoffs...) but there have been quite a few transactions with the team since then.
First and foremost, Ian White signed on for three more years! (This one I posted something about a while ago because it's Ian!)

Also included with the Toskala deal was Mark Bell (F), in exchange for trio of draft picks (a first rounder from '07, '08 or '09 [San Jose's option], an '07 second-rounder and a '09 fourth-rounder.)

Leafs Sign White To Extension

(May 8, 2007) -- John Ferguson, vice-president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Tuesday that the club has signed defenceman Ian White to a three-year contract extension. In keeping with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

White, 22, played in his first full NHL season for the Maple Leafs in 2006-07. In 76 games, White collected three goals and 23 assists for 26 points, along with 40 penalty minutes and a (+8) plus/minus rating. White finished the season tied for second in both assists and points among all NHL rookie defencemen. White also tied an NHL single game season high, when he earned a plus/minus rating of (+6) against the Bruins at Boston on January 4.

White has skated in 88 career games for Toronto, registering 32 points on four goals and 28 assists. He was one of 14 players who played for the Maple Leafs this season to have at one time played for the American Hockey League affiliate Toronto Marlies. The Winnipeg, Manitoba native was originally Toronto’s sixth choice, 191st overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

This year the Leafs came so close to winning the 8th and final playoff spot they could almost taste it. After a gut-wrenching game versus Montreal on Saturday April 7th, it was hard to watch as the New York Islanders defeated the New Jersey Devils (sans Martin Brodeur) to clinch the final spot, as they moved ahead a point of the Leafs. Oh well, there's always next year, right?
