Leafs 08-09 Timeline

Just for fun, starting now predicting the Leafs every move until this time next year.

Sept. 1 2008- Toronto trades defencemen Bryan McCabe and Alexei Ponicarovsky to the Florida Panthers for Mike Van Ryn and David Booth.
-The Leafs pull the deal everyone expected when it comes to Van Ryn and McCabe but the Poni and Booth comes to the surprise of everyone.

Are We Bad Enough?

Every one says the leafs are so bad, and as a leafs fan, it does get tiring. But im sure these kinda articles and attention to the leafs also gets annoying to none leafs fans, as it does to me as well. But are the leafs really as bad off as everyone says? I don’t think that they are.

Fearless Predictions for the 08-09 Season

My Predictions:

-Top 5 PP
-Top 10 PK

Sundin has 2 places left on his list.

Sundin is narrowing down his choices on where he will go if he comes back. Sources have 2 Big named teams knocked out of the running. So who’s left? Well not that hard to tell when you look at the facts.

NARROWING DOWN WHERE SUNDIN WILL LAND.

Pure Speculation – Bryan McCabe

Nice job everyone here who posts on HTR. In a couple of the articles on the front page here on HTR I’ve been reading a lot of people’s suggestions for where Bryan McCabe will be traded to and for what.

The face of hockey trade rumors is being traded!

Dog days of Summer!

It is like watching paint dry! They say no news is good news, but not for hockey fans in summer!

The latest Sundin report….In an interview on Sportsnet, he still hasn’t said anything. He hasn’t made up his mind to play, forget about for which team. He has stayed in shape and hopes to decide in August. But, he doesn’t have a deadline!

Bouwmeester to Flyers??

I read this article and found it quite intriguing.

Patrick O'Sullivan??

Now let me just preface this with the fact that this is just an idea, so let your comments ride on that…

O'Neil invited to training camp

tsn.ca is reporting that former Hurricanes 1st round pick is coming out of retirement and will attend the Hurricanes training camp as an unsigned UFA in hopes of making the team.

Pavel Valentenko, Ryan O'Byrne or Josh Gorges, Who Should Be The Habs #4 D-

I’ll start by saying that yes, on paper the Habs lack a true #4 defenceman. However, this is far from being a significant problem and in time, one of two things will happen. Either:

The Canucks Report

This is whats going on:

Marlies add a killer assistant coach

TSN, Sportsnet and The Canadian press report that former Leaf great Doug Gilmour has been named as an assistant coach to the Toronto Marlies.
Gilmour had spent the previous two seasons in the Leafs organization as an advisor to Maple Leafs management.
The former Leafs captain now joins Greg Gilberts coaching staff alongside Joe Paterson, and Jim Hughes.

For Whom the Belle Tolls

There are some posters who believe that Mtl needs to sign another defenceman to fill the number 4 spot. I am not sure why some feel the need to deal away good young prospects for another d-man while there are some that complain that Mtl has too much depth on defence and need to trade some for the big centre most think they need!
