Maple Leaf forum survey

State of Panic: Leaf Edition

There are a few teams in a state of panic. I’m going to try to show how I’d build each of those teams to be champions if I were the GM, I’d like to start with my favorite team, the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Time for a change

I’ll start by stating that I am a leafs fan, and, as such have accepted the fact that times have changed and this means the Leafs need to be overhauled for the ‘New NHL’.

A Factual Case for Rebuilding the LEAFS

If Toronto kept their draft picks -

Eagle to Edmonton?

The Toronto Star Reported today that the Edmonton Oilers may be interested in Belfour.

It is NOT the time to rebuild

People are saying that the Leafs should blow it up, and start again. Total bull shit. If the Leafs don’t win the Stanley Cup this year, which is just about impossible, it will be the third longest droubt in NHL history, and if Chicago wins before 2017 and we don’t, it will be the longest.

Could Bertuzzi be heading to the Flyers?

Tributes to Al MacInnis

Burtuzzi and Brashear

In light of the suspention of Donald Brashear for his hit on Darius Kasparaitis it got me very steamed over people reactions to that incedent. What Brashear did was as brutal in action and even less motivated than the Burtuzzi hit on Moore.
