Breaking News: Toronto Maple Leafs Trade For Brad May, Demote Kulemin

Derek HarmsworthSenior Writer IJanuary 7, 2009

The price of toughness?  Apparently a conditional sixth round pick.

In a classic Brian Burke move, he made good on two stereotypes today.  One, he likes tough guys; and two, he is loyal.

It was announced today that the Maple Leafs have acquired Brad May from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for that conditional sixth round pick I spoke of earlier.

The Maple Leafs also announced forward Nikolai Kulemin has been sent to the AHL's Toronto Marlies.
