Conditional 7th Round Draft Pick

Not much to this deal, which went down on Tuesday morning. The Ducks and Leafs re-opened their lines of communication to swap a minor-league player for a very low draft pick. The Leafs get a gritty forward in Aaron Voros, who hasn't done enough to make a regular roster spot with the Ducks and the Leafs deal a pick, which is likely conditional on re-signing with the team, if I had to guess.

Voros does fit the build of a Brian Burke player, he's bigger with a bit of a mean streak to him, but has really fallen off the map, with some pretty poor seasons of late.  His acquisition gives the Leafs a little more depth and another option to bring up from the Marlies.  That's about it.
