Welcome Back, Yanic

Leafs fans have little exciting news to talk about. The much anticipated NHL trade deadline has now passed, and when all was said and done, the Toronto Maple Leafs did very little to muster up a playoff push. What were they able to snag? A old faceoff specialist - a player who's bounced around from team to team, including playing as a Leaf twice previously.

Yanic Perreault, along with a fifth-round draft pick in 2007, is back and will be putting on the blue and white jersey once again. The Phoenix Coyotes get young defenceman Brendan Bell and a second-round pick in 2007. Once again the Leafs give up youth for "experience".

Welcome back, Yanic.
