One year after trading for Andrew Raycroft, the Toronto Maple Leafs GM has made another splash, reeling in Vesa Toskala from the San Jose Sharks for a package including Toronto's first-round pick this year.

Toskala was the most attractive goalie available on the trade market this off-season.

Forward Mark Bell also comes to Toronto in the deal.

The Sharks also receive a second-round pick in this year's draft and a 2009 fourth-round pick.

Toronto's pick was 13th overall.
