Leafs R Falling Like Leaves

NO! I know the Leafs won 4-2 against the Sabres Thursday night, but thats not what I meen! What I meen is that it seems Wellwood, Tucker, Poni, Antropov, White, Peca, and Wozniewski r injured. WOW! 7 of the Leafs players are out. 4 of them r returning soon, but 3 are not even close to coming back.Since we r bringing up so many Marlies players this effects that AHL team too. With the salary cap room that we had(About half a million) we claimed Travis Green off waivers, but is this re-signing enough. Now, Green is a defensive fourth line grinder, and maybe that helps, but we need more help offensivly then we do defensively. Although, Toronto is 5th in the NHL for GF/G and 25th in the NHL for GA/G, which is an interesting stat it seems there are more forwards out at the moment than defenseman.

Now, maybe I didn’t make it clear, but what I mean is it seems we need to get a forward better than Travis Green b4 the trade deadline if we want to have any hope of a playoff run.

Now, I don’t have a lot of ideas, but couldn’t we just put Peca on long term injury to alleviate the salary cap room. Now, I’m not exactly sure how this works, but wouldn’t that temporarily relieve the 2.5 million that Mike Peca is paid of his contract. Meening we would have about 41.5Mil spent and 2.5 Mil to use for a rental. As said in another article couldn’t we then pull a Doug Weight and trade for prospects and youth, hire free agent, claim someone off waivers or make a decent trade(Not Klee for Suglobov like last year) to hold us upon the return of some forwards?

I hope I made everything clear, and it makes sense I’m new at a lot of this stuff so please don’t be mean! XD LOL!

     You have terrible spelling! Another thing is that you stated the Leafs have the one of the worst GA/A in the league but have one of the best GF/G. So the picking up of Travis Green wa a move to help us DEFENSIVLEY! We need more help on d than we do on offense. This article ranks up there in some of the bad Leafs articles lately and for one of the worst in the history of htr.com.

    K, my spelling and grammer is bad, <LOL XD, but then you had to go and say my article sucks. THere have been worse ones than this so don't say that. I accually don't think this is that bad. Your comments are stupid too, our defense is fine the GA/G reflects the play of the goaltending which has been crap, but JFJ and Paul Maurice already stated that Raycroft is here to stay , so if we can't change our defense or goalie there only one thing left. FORWARDS! Which we are lacking right now due to injury. We added a defensive foward, and that good , but what I'm saying is we need someone better to hold us until we get someone back. Also, like I said this is badly hurting the AHL team so we can't forget about thrm either. So honestly shut up!

    I like this article , its straight forward and makes sence , if the leafs are in 7th,8th,9th . in the next 2 weeks you can bet on it that Gary Roberts will be back in a leafs uni , Not that ,that is a good thing but you juss know its gonna happen .So i guess that he will be our playoff rental . And remember he can play !

    I don't think JFJ would really care about the Marlies situation, when the Maple Leaf's organization is more of an obligation for success.
