It sounds like one National Hockey League general manager might be hinting at a possibly move, and considering how notoriously tight-lipped that general manager usually is it's quite surprising.

Senior hockey reporter at TSNFrank Seravalli, recently spoke to Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello regarding the future of talented but often-injured forward Joffrey Lupul as a Maple Leaf. Here's how Seravalli described the exchange in his own wordsin his own wordsin his own wordsin his own words.

Lamoriello says he has "no comment" on the status of Joffrey Lupul, adds that he's "on our roster" but that's all he say for now. Hmm.

Lupul has been a source of frustration for some time now for the Maple Leafs, as mentioned above despite his incredible talent his inability to stay healthy has hampered his development and his ability to be an impact player for Toronto.

If the Leafs believe that he will never a reliable option in their line up, they may be looking to cut their loses while they are still deep in their rebuild.
