The Frank Corrado for Eric Fehr trade, or whatever you want to call it, was a relatively “meh” move for most Leafs fans. As the Lamoriello-era Leafs have proven, there’s no guarantee that acquisition of a player by the Toronto Maple Leafs equals that asset actually receiving playing time.
So far, Eric Fehr has played in 51 games this season for the Pittsburgh Penguins notching 11 points, and 0 for the Maple Leafs since being acquired. There’s been rumours of sending him down to the AHL, but nothing’s come to fruition yet.
Isn’t it a strange league where you can get playing time on the Penguins, but not the Leafs?
Fehr has proven himself as a capable if not spectacular NHLer. Among regular Leafs forwards, he’s put up more points than only Matt Martin and Nikita Soshnikov this season, both with 7. Does that warrant him a roster spot? Should the Leafs look to sit him out and deal him in the offseason? Play him on the first line? Use him as a backup goalie?
Or something else?
