Roberts to hated Ottawa? Say it ain't so....anywhere but there
I'm not one who would cry if Roberts was not brought back to Toronto, but please don't let him end up in Ottawa. According to a reporton www.sportsnet.ca, gritty Leafs winger Gary Roberts may be going to the provincial rival Ottawa Senators, reports the Ottawa Sun.Sources have told the Sun that GM John Muckler will make an offer to Roberts when the unrestricted free agent market opens Aug. 1."We haven't had any formal or preliminary discussions (with Ottawa) regarding Gary, but I would think he is going to be sought after by four or five teams that have an interest in a guy with his kind of character," Roberts' agent Rick Curran told the Sun.
