IN – Mikhail Grabovski, Nikolai Kulemin, Cory Conacher, T.J. Brennan, Jaroslav Halak

OUT- Radek Martinek, Evgeni Nabokov

The former Maple Leafs duo of Grabovski and Kulemin are reunited on Long Island and they should be an upgrade as a decent second line or very good third line. Brennan was the AHL’s best defenseman but didn’t get a shot with the Maple Leafs despite his solid play.
