Roman Polak's return did well to quiet the whispers, but Kris Russell's camp is setting the record straight anyway.

Russell's agent, Allain Roy, tweeted Sunday that they have not turned down a contract offer from the Toronto Maple Leafs, calling the suggestion merely a rumor.

Various reports over the weekend linked the Leafs to Russell, including one that indicated Lou Lamoriello and co. had tabled a fairly substantial multi-year offer.

Toronto announced it had signed Polak, the eighth NHL-ready defender under team control, Saturday afternoon.
