Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
Unrestricted free-agent winger Ryan Smyth would be a perfect complement to flank Sundin, but keep this in mind: If he was looking for a five-year deal worth $5.5 million, then his demands aren’t about to drop. Daniel Briere? Chris Drury? They might very well be too pricey.
How about what’s referred to as “The Wilbur Plan” in reference to former Leafs executive Bill Watters, who yesterday floated the idea of pursuing free-agent forwards Scott Hartnell and Paul Kariya.
Or, perhaps, do they take a flyer on Alexei Yashin at a bargain-basement price?
Then there is the issue of whether free agents even want to come to Toronto and be under the spotlight 24/7.
