Ever since Jordan Staal broke into the league, I have wanted him to become a Leaf somehow. With his size and skill, he is being wasted on the 3rd line with the Pens, imo. $4M/yr. is also a lot of money to be paying a player you have centering your 3rd line. With the very real potential of the cap shrinking considerably in a year or two, that $4/yr. would be better utilized in other areas, imo.
There is no question that Winnipeg is full of intense hockey fans.

On draft day the leafs are going for a higher pick but who wll they trade to get it? Well there are a few they need to move like, Nik Hagman With a 3 Million dollars a season should be traded, Boyd Devereaux could go due to the fact the leafs are set in the Center Spot, Pavel Kubin can with they big money contract isn’t playing at the level he should, Tomas Kaberle can go if there is a trade for a pick but he is still good.
Calling all GTA and Golden horseshoe Leafs fans!… would you defect? Would you become a Hamilton fan?
It might seem stupid, but its actually very possible. It only makes sense for the Canucks in the long term…. see why
There are still two rounds of the playoffs to go and both rounds should produce some great moments! We have already had some great series and it should be even better this round! But, even though we should be sitting back and enjoying the hockey, we all still love to throw out our opinions as to what our favorite teams should do.
