Then there were the Toronto Maple Leafs, who signed Colby Armstrong for 3 years and $9 million but weren't engaged otherwise on July 1 according to multiple agents. "Not only were the Leafs not aggressive, but their offices were closed and their GM and assistant GM were not taking calls for part of the day," said an agent. Another agent said Burke is a general manager "on a high horse," believing that the franchise can sell itself. But that agent said Burke's approach is understandable given the market: "Toronto should be a great place to play. It has everything but the winning."From Wyshynski's excellent piece on the free agent frenzy. This is one of the many illuminating statements from agents. You can definitely wonder at the agents' motivations especially when granted anonymity but it's still troublesome to read.
