May Day in the Northeast Division

A familiar face will be facing the Sabres a few times in the final months of the regular season.

Brad May was traded to Toronto today in exchange for a conditional draft pick.

May, who spent parts of seven seasons in Buffalo during the 90’s, now makes his sixth stop in the NHL (twice with Vancouver) since he was traded to the Canucks for Geoff Sanderson in 1998.

“Brad will provide character, toughness, and he is a proven winner,” said Burke in a statement. “We look forward to the veteran leadership that he will give our team.”

May, 37, is in the final year of a two-year contract that pays him $600,000 this season.

Does this make Toronto tougher to play against?

I would say yes. More guys like May give Ruff more reason to play Andrew Peters. That makes things tougher.
