My honest opinions of the Leafs line-up.I have to admit, i was a little worried about Raycroft when we aquired him, but wow im pretty impressed, he is vey solid in net.I know its only been 3 games but still, its better than what we had last year!Now i have to admit, i dont find him strong at all in the shoot-out, he never saved anything heck the only time he saved t and well it wasnt really a save is when the shooter missed.Now for the defence, im impressed, not leaving Raycorft by himself, making great plays, blocking shots and staying on there man.As much as i dis like Gill, i found he played very good this game, he blocked shots and he would get in the way to force a turnover.The offence..i like the lines, all of them play well together, and i like belak, on the 4th for some grit now i like the lines the way they are now, but what happends when Antropov comes back?Who is gonna leave, or is he not gonna be good enough for the leafs?I have realised and well im sure im not the only one, but we need help, 5 on 5.Maybe we could get someone in a trade for Telly or maybe not, bt i dont think we can rely on the powerplay all year long.

Im leaving the floor open to you, for your coments

    I think JFJ should package Telly, Carlo, Antropov and Jeff Oneill together and see if he can pull a rabbit out of a hat or a goal scorer at least.

    None have any trade value except *maybe* a *tiny* bit for Antropov and O’Neill, maybe a 5th or 6th rounder for each. Then again, for 1 million and 1,5 million respectively, they are not likely to fetch even that.

    Packaged, they are worth even less as it is even more salary to take on

    Bottom line, they are stuck. The only think I could see them doing is waiving Jeff O’Neill and signing Bondra.

    you’ll never move a package that big. 4 guys of all positions. I dont know…. And as far as Antropov is concerned, I’d take him over O’Neil, John Pohl, Ponikarovski, Suglobov (twice scratched), and think he’s AS valuable as Matt Stajan.

    I like the lines how they are now, but I think Steen needs be moved to Sundins LW. I think he could be the scoring winger we need. I also think he should get some powerplay time. And I also think that if Tucker gets moved to the 2nd line and still gets the same powerlay time he is getting now, he could score even more goals this year than last year. Heres an idea:

    Steen – Sundin – Wellwood
    Ponikarovsky – Peca – Tucker
    Kilger – Stajan – O’neill
    Battaglia – Pohl – Belak

    Sorry, I typed the lines, but they didn’t show up the same way.
    Steen/Sundin/Wellwood Ponikarovsky/Peca/Tucker Kilger/Stajan/O’neill Battaglia/Pohl/Belak
