One report making the rounds yesterday had the Leafs acquiring journeyman defenceman Jamie Rivers from the Detroit Red Wings. Rivers was in the St. Louis Blues organization from 1995-99, making him a commodity Leafs general manager John Ferguson would be familiar with. But while Leafs scout Craig Button was in Detroit for the Wings-Nashville game last night, Ferguson was quick to deny any transaction had been completed involving Rivers. "That is not factual," Ferguson said.To be fair to Leafs Lunch, they did say this transaction was going to happen, although it may take a day or two before it is actually made public. update Wednesday 1:26pm, Bill Watters from Leafs Lunch mentioned today that they were told that Rivers would be a Leaf. He then said no matter if Rivers comes, it is a minor deal....They also had Toronto GM John Ferguson Jr, on earlier and nothing was mentioned about this deal.
