Leafs out of John-Michael Liles race?


It appears the Toronto Maple Leafs are out of the John-Michael Liles derby.

A source told ESPN.com on Monday morning that the Colorado Avalanche will not be moving the veteran puck-moving defenseman to the Leafs. Whether Liles could be sent somewhere else remains unknown.

Liles has one more year left on his current deal, paying him $4.2 million this season and in 2011-12.
