Just a quick note about the deal that Toronto and Atlanta swung today, with the major players being Pavel Kubina to Atlanta and Garnet Exelby going to the Maple Leafs. Also headed for Toronto is forward Colin Stuart, the brother of Boston Bruins defenseman Mark Stuart.
Colin has been back and forth between the AHL and the NHL the last two seasons. But if he sticks with Toronto, there’s a chance six battles of the brothers Stuart in the 2009-10 season. Those battles have been the only reason to watch many of the Bruins-Thrashers games the last two seasons. Mark Stuart, a defensive defenseman, even scored two goals in one game in one of the matchups against his brother’s club.
