    Great deal for the Maple Leafs.

    Jesus Christ…I heard Wadell gave up Alex Bouret for Dupuis…that is another questionable move on his part. I figured moving all the other youth was fine and that he just wanted to keep Little and Bourret….that guy is going to score between 20-40 goals a year eventually, even if it is closer to 20 he is a tank…love to hit and plays the game with the kind of enthusiasm that will mak ehim a fan favorite. You can have Jason York for Bryan Little…

    Thank You Atlanta! On the other hand I think Dupuis was the ideal type to be along side Cullen on the checking line, but I wouldn't hesitate on that offer.

    JFJ is such an ass!

    What is this idiot thinking? Why do we need another centerman? Why do we need another WASHED UP old guy on this team? And for a prospect AND a pick!!!!!!!!!

    I hope JFJ gets fired after the season is done. Hes done such a great job at making this team better……..

    *****ing idiot!

    What a great deal for the Rangers. Bourret is a good scoring prospect + a 3rd round pick.

  6. Pony says:

    Not that I agree he was needed but hes the best face-off man in the league and a, get this, All-Star.

    John Ferguson Jr. has greatly disappointed me again. Looking at the other trades around the NHL, it looks like Ferguson missed out on a lot of potential great transactions which could have bolstered the Leafs lineup. Bertuzzi for example probably could have been had for Brendan Bell or Staffan Kronwall and 2 conditional round draft picks. That being said, here is the probable lineup for this week with Yanic Perreault inserted.

    Alexei Ponikarovsky – Mats Sundin – Nik Antropov
    Alexander Steen – Matt Stajan – Jeff O'Neill
    Bates Battaglia – Yanic Perreault – John Pohl
    Chad Kilger – Travis Green – Wade Belak
    inj: Mike Peca, Kyle Wellwood, Kris Newbury, Darcy Tucker

    Tomas Kaberle – Bryan McCabe
    Carlo Colaiacovo – Andy Wozniewski
    Hal Gill – Ian White
    inj: Pavel Kubina

    Andrew Raycroft
    J. S. Aubin

    uhhh no.. bad deal.

    this reaks of desperation on JFJ's part to save his job. MLSE is pressuring him to make the playoffs.. JFJ is mission out on everything else. so he turns around and grabs up perreault. hey mlse.. he's an allstar?.. bottom line. he gave up a prospect.. and a second rounder for an aging centerman (of which we have enough of).. with a bad shoulder? how's he played since the break?.. you make leaf fans look bad. idiot.

    now if he had turned around and actually used one of the extra centerman (ie. stajan) to address one of the teams actual needs after that.. (sundins winger?) than it wouldnt have seemed so bad.

    how effin stupid are you that giving up a top pick and a prospect for a guy on the decline who's hurt is a good deal for the leafs?.. they're not getting better and younger.. and they still aren't making the playoffs?

  10. leafsrule31 says:

    .. exactly

    what a boob.. at least when they don't make the playoffs i hope he finally gets canned. seriously .. what a shmuck

    this reaks of a desperate move.. and one that can't save his job. i was convinced adding perrault meant he had another deal set in my place for an actual need of the team that wouldnt gut it. but nope!.. JFJ couldn't manage a little league farm team… but mlse loves it. they've got their hand so far up his ass his breath smells like hand. brutal.

    After last year's trade deadline.
    Then the summer of brain-dead

    Now this?

    I would not give up a promising young defender for a 36 year old veteran centerman (when your team has about 6 natural centers already).

    But then, to give up a second round pick ?!?!?!?! WTF?

    JFJ is unquestionably the stupidest GM in the NHL.

  12. leafsrule31 says:

    we all know JFJ is a puppet.. even worse?.. hes a chimpanzee puppet. i was scared to death all day knowing that clown was behind the wheel. and to see him pull off some crap like this was exactly as to be expected. just reaaaks of desperation to attempt to save his job by showing the chumps at MLSE that he's seriously attempting to get this team into the playoffs, which is ludacris… but what i think they're after.

    just showed us what intelligent leaf fans already knew, we will be a fringe team every year forced to be excited about attempting to make the playoffs, or an early exit. i guess we either get used to it or get a new team

    could be an oiler fan?

  13. SabresFan220 says:

    The best part about all of it the Sabres just slapped the Leafs around 6-1 with half a lineup of Rochester Americans, and playing a man short because Briere had the flu and couldn't play. I wish I could hear the Toronto media tomorrow morning when they talk about being embarrassed by half an AHL team. I'll admit Miller held the Sabres in the game early on, but as soon as they got the 1st goal you could just see the Leafs fall apart.

    No surprised here…..

    Toronto probably couldn't beat my brother Bantam house league team…..

    and we've got AT LEAST another 20 years of this shit 🙁
