Leafs Off-season/ Up-coming season 06/07

First off I Wanna say im very excited about this upcoming season but these past few months, hockey talk has been quite boring .. So i wanna start something up and bring my opinion to your minds .. SECONDLY i wanna back up Hal Gill because every post i look at .. everyone is bashing this signing and bashing him all together. This guy has been a +56 the 3 seasons before the lockout, he played for a HORRIBLE Boston team last season and STILL only had a

-4 rating .. Our Beloved Lindros was a -3..Klee when he was with the leafs was a -8 Lets take a look at some stars and see there +/- rating .. hmm 1st off Ryan Smyth -5 .. Sheldon Sourey -11

Jovanovski -8 .. Boyle -8 .. Pronger ONLY a +2

Our Leafs McCabe and Kaberle -1 .. Kubina -13 ..

BEST of all everyone loved the signing of the 2 time Selke award winner Michael Peca .. yeah he was a -4 aswell .. nobody bashed him .. most of the league struggled last season because nobody truely knew what to expect .. now with adjustments we’ll see some change

Honestly Gill isnt as bad as everyone seems .. hes the perfect stay at home defenceman the Leafs truely need. We all know he isnt a guy who will put up points and we honestly dont need that

so go ahead and bash because some may not like my opinions but im stating facts like it or not.

NOW here we go .. lets talk some trades and such

If i was to be asked if the Leafs would make the playoff’s this season, i would honestly have to say yes simply because they have improved there team, they made all the right moves by letting go of the right players and bringing in the right players .. maybe not the right prices but none of us can say anything .. its simply not our money .. but if it was my team for a day here is what i wuld honestly do.

Since Nashville is curriently shopping wingers .. the 1st thought that would go through my head is screw Carter. for the amount of money he wants .. it aint worth it .. c’mon 3 mill for a guy who played along side 2 great skilled playmakers last season and only put up 55 points, he truely isnt worth it.

Ferguson should seriously take a look at Nashville’s wingers .. He should offer a deal like this

To Nashville : 2nd Pick in 2007..5th pick in 2008

To Toronto : Erat OR Hartnell

I Know we need a “star” for Sundin but honestly these 2 guys played on the 2nd/3rd line for Nashville last season and put up some pretty nice numbers (48 for Hartnell, 49 for Erat)

Erat is starting to show he can be a capable playmaker. I think he would excell on Sundins wing. Hartnell could be a nice powerforward for Sundin aswell .. but honestly i believe we need a playmaker or scorer who will match up nice with Sundin .. but Hartnell would fit nice on a line with Peca and Tucker .. that would be the perfect shutdown line.

Some other deals/ signings i believe ferguson should think about is this

Sign Daze to a 1 year deal worth around 1 million

Make An Offer to Morozov for 3 years worth 1.5

Any Other opinions on what the Leafs should do .. send away!
