Maple Leafs acquire Berehowsky

TSN.ca Staff


2/11/2004

The Toronto Maple Leafs have picked up a defenceman to bolster their blueline, acquiring Drake Berehowsky from the Pittsburgh Penguins for defenceman Ric Jackman.

Jackman, 25, has appeared in 29 games this season with the Maple Leafs, recording six points (2+4) and 13 penalty minutes. Additionally, Jackman has appeared in three games with the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate, St. John's, recording three points (2+1).

He has appeared in 111 career NHL games with Dallas, Boston and Toronto, recording 11 points (3+8) and 80 penalty minutes. Jackman was drafted by Dallas in the first round (5th overall) of the 1996 Entry Draft.

Berehowsky, 32, returns to the team that drafted him 10th overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. He has appeared in 47 games this season with the Penguins, recording 21 points (5+16) and 50 penalty minutes.

The 6-2 and 217 pound native of Toronto has appeared in 540 career games with the Penguins, Toronto, Edmonton, Nashville, Vancouver and Phoenix, recording 146 points (36+110) and 831 penalty minutes.

they acquired a veteran defencemen near the end of his career in exchange for an experienced player with the better part of his career ahead of him

if they want solid hockey players with great instinct, veterans are the way to go

if they want a sucky team in 5 or so years, they're definately doing it right :)

hopefully by then they'll have won a stanley cup and made all this old-man recruiting worthwhile. ..

How is it dumb, Jackman wasn't getting much ice time and was not going to in the near future anyways. Berehowsky is not going to get any ice time either, so it doesn't make a difference. The trade is just to make Jackman happy since he was complaining he wasn't getting any ice time. Why ruin someone's carreer?

if that's the rationale for it, then it's going against the Leafs past track record

they both stink.

but at least Drake is more experienced and Quinn might have more faith in him than in Jackman.

how is that not dumb? Trading one bench warmer for another? The Leafs need to improve, not make insignificant trades.

Improve? They're in the top 5 of all NHL teams right now and only a few points from 1st overall.

How much more do you want?!

They are struggling to be at the top, because there are so many injuries, one after another. Come playoff time, when would everybody have time to gel?

I'm glad, Jackman was a Jack-ass. Now he can go fumble teh puck around for some other team, or as mentioned above, warm the bench...

Yeah, because making an insignificant move is dumb. :rolleyes: This move has nothing to do with their preparation for the playoffs, though one can argue a complaining player can disrupt the dressing room chemistry, but that's minimal in this case. A significant trade will happen, just wait.

That won't be an issue. It's not like these guys haven't played together before. Plus, all the players have been playing on different lines all the time, it wouldn't be much different when inserting injured players* back in.



*these players are superior to the players that they have replacing them right now.
