The Toronto Maple Leafs signed journey man winger Mike Brown to a three year 2.2 million dollar contract extension on Tuesday, and it may be the best signing Brian Burke has made so far.
“We are extremely pleased to have Mike under contract for the next three years,” Burke said. “His blend of character, energy and toughness has proven to be a good fit in the overall structure and makeup of our team.”
Mike Brown who appears to be poised for a career high in points this year, has been exactly as Brian Burke described a solid character guy who always plays with energy.
If half of the rest of the team played with the same type of passion and personality, the Leafs would never miss the post season.
Of course, that being said, some one has to do the scoring. Mike Brown is indeed on pace for a career high in points but that career high is a mere ten points.
The Toronto Maple Leafs as a whole, once again have a number of free agents to deal with this off season, and some tough decisions to be made
Here are a few that will be hot topic contracts for much of the rest of the season in Leaf Land.
