Darcy Tucker No Longer On The Leafs’ Books

from Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star,

Six years after leaving Toronto, Darcy Tucker is still signing autographs for the Maple Leafs.

Six years after buying him out, the Leafs have finally stopped mailing him a regular paycheque.

Tucker has been receiving a million dollars annually since then Leafs GM Cliff Fletcher decided in 2008 that the franchise wanted to go in another direction. Tucker, now 39, played eight seasons in Toronto, and the club made the playoffs in five of them (and missed by one and two points, respectively, in the two years after the 2004-05 lockout).
