The Toronto Maple Leafs have claimed defenseman Erik Reitz off waivers from the New York Rangers.
The Leafs also claimed Ottawa Senators goalie Martin Gerber off re-entry waivers. Brochu's take: Gerber will be the no.1 goalie for the Leafs for the rest of the season, as Vesa Toskala has been shut down for hip surgery.

The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed Tim Connolly to a two-year, $9 million contract extension. Brochu's take: The Sabres had to do this, but that's a lot of money to a guy with serious injury troubles.
