You’ll always be a fan favourite, but you need to drop this paranoia thing you have seemed to have developed over the last couple years, we like you Tie, you can let your guard down. 28 forever, and whether you decide to play for another team or retire, your contribution will always be respected and remembered. Sawchuk, Mahavolich, Keon, Sittler, Salming, Clark, Gilmour, Sundin, Roberts, Domi. Good luck to you Tie and keep up with those Quiznos commercials, atleast we get to see Tie in some of those, just in case we need a Domi fix.

Tie has many supporters, myself being one of them. However, I am also a realist. Tie just does not fit in the new NHL anymore, nor does he fit the new Leaf template. Now before I go on, one may ask why I would make a statement like that considering that the Leafs may bring a 39 year old Gary Roberts back?
Roberts is an unquestionalble leader who elevates everyones game. While the Leafs will no doubt develop from within, and proboably hot make a huge splash on the free agent market, they will still need vets. Roberts is one who can make a huge difference. Tie could do the same, but usually by fighting, and let’s face it, while a formidable fighter in his earlier years, the last few I saw him in, he got his clock cleaned. His time has simply gone.
I’m really going to miss Tie, he was a fan favorite and bled blue and white. But it’s time to move on.]]>
