Kubina Grows On Leafs

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

Not only is Pavel Kubina unlikely to be traded, but Cliff Fletcher is talking him up as a possible captain if Mats Sundin departs.

With an Aug. 15 window to shop Kubina rapidly closing, the Maple Leafs’ general manager yesterday listed the chance of dealing the $5-million US defenceman as “less than 50%.”

“Any trade involving Pavel would have to be very advantageous for the Leafs,” Fletcher said. “I thought he played well last season (after an awful start to Kubina’s four-year $20-million deal) and I know (new coach) Ron Wilson liked him a lot. Plus, it’s very quiet right now for trades.”
