The NHL trade deadline is now behind us and we've found out a couple of deals that fell through. While the focus has been on this trade deadline, we recently learned about a Toronto Maple Leafs' deal that almost went down in 2006. During a recent appearance on the Spittin Chiclets Podcast, former NHLer Chris Pronger revealed he came extremely close to being traded to the Leafs by the Edmonton Oilers. According to Pronger, the Leafs were right in the mix and making a serious push but weren't willing to give up one specific player. The Oilers according to Pronger wanted Alex Steen but the Leafs would only move Matt Stajan. Edmonton eventually turned their attention to Anaheim who gave up Joffrey Lupul, Ladislav Smid, a 2007 1st, a 2008 1st and a 2008 2nd. The Leafs would eventually end up trading Steen to to the St. Louis Blues along with Carlo Colaiacovo for Lee Stempniak. Wow!Would you have made this trade?
