Who doesn't love an absurd rumour? I saw this one on Twitter this morning, which really shakes one's head. Huet for Finger, two large cap hits, which extend past this season getting dealt. I think the backing of this one was that Brian Burke stated that he would take on salary cap hits for teams as help. Well, whichever bonehead came up with this is forgetting that Burke wants to be rid of his acquired cap space in July so the Maple Leafs remain flexible in the off-season. If Huet was to go to Toronto, there would also have to be picks to compensate the Leafs for taking on such a big lump of salary, which wasn't mentioned. Skip it...
