On This Day August 18th.

August 18: On this day in 1986, the Leafs sent Walt Poddubny to the Rangers in exchange for Mike Allison. It turned out to be a poor trade for the Leafs. Allison scored just 7 times in his next 86 games with Toronto and lasted just over one year as a Leaf. Meanwhile, Poddubny went on to have a carrer year with the Rangers potting 40 goals and then following up with two straight seasons of 38 goals apiece.
