Marchment Wants Leafs…Even If Its For 1-Year, Or Less Than 1-Million A Year

HTML:CITYPULSE24(news report).

Sources have reported rugged hard nosed defensemen Bryan Marchment wanting to play for the Leafs at any cost…(Or lack there of),Bryan Marchment has apperantly told reporters that he wants to play for the Leaf no matter what.

Even if its one year, or even if its less than a million a year.

*Experts Look: Heck, If thats true, then Leafs will most likely sign Marchment by tomorrow or the day after. Either way, I say Marchment will be a Leaf. He sounds like he’d give an arm to be here. Quinn tends to go for players with that type of motivation of playing for the Leafs.



Bryan Marchment to Toronto?

The Score reports that Scarborough Ontario native, Bryan Marchment, would like to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs. His agent told the Leafs that Marchment is willing to sign a one or two year contract and he is also willing to take a pay cut as long as he gets to play for Toronto.

    The Leafs defense picture is really clouded right now. Only two guys really have a guarenteed spot, and those guys are Kaberle and McCabe. The other defensemen are Berg, Jackman, Belak, Coliacavo, Bell, Hedin, Pilar, Kondratiev, White. Thats 11 guys, take out Belak because he should play forward, and thats 10. Than you got possibly Wesley, Marchment, De Vris, Klee, and Svehla. The Leafs will only sign at the most two defensemen. Just for now we’ll say its Wesley and Marcment. Svehla will probably not come back. So guarenteed spots will go to McCabe, Kaberle, Wesley, Marchment. That leaves two spots open for the leafs prospects. I heard the Leafs are gonna send Coliacavo for a year in the minors. Bell seems to have a spot in the line up. and the other will go to either Hedin or Kondratiev.

    McCabe / Wesley

    Kaberle / Marchment ( or De Vris )

    Bell / Hedin or Kondratiev

    But Pilar, White, Jackman, and Berg will have a good shot at getting a 5th / 6th spot. I can see the Leafs rotating the 5th and 6th spots throughout the season.

    it’s all coming together now

    As a Leaf fan I would be happy if they re-sgned Wesley and maybe De Vries. That is it.

    I don’t think they have a prayer next year. I would like to see them make the playoffs and don’t expect more.

    I would not be surprised if they sign no one.

  4. WeStSiDe says:

    The Leaf’s didnt pursue him, he wanted to long of a deal.

  5. WeStSiDe says:

    I rather them tank and get a top 3 pick then JUST make the playoffs.

    However seeing this off season isnt over, hard to say what lies for next year at this point.

    People are bitter over not getting Hatcher etc, but you cant be stupid enough to get locked into 5 year deals. Detroit may look good next year, but they are going to be in deep trouble beyond that year.

    The Leafs need to concentrate on Wesley rather than Marchment. Wesley can play some steady D, which is what this defense needs. All Marchment is going to really do is make them shorthanded more often. That’s really about it.

  7. GreatWhiteNorth says:

    Wesley won’t sign with the Leafs unless they offer him at least a 2 or 3 year deal, and so far the Leafs haven’t been willing to do that, seeming to keep in line with their idea of keeping as few players under contract passed 2004. Hopefully that will change, but if it doesn’t Wesley will sign elsewhere.

    One D spot will be given to Bell, Hedin, Kondratiev, Coliacovo, with Coliacovo the most likely winner of that spot.

    Hearing Marchment wants to sign for cheap with the Leafs… if that’s true, then Quinn would be crazy not to sign him. He’s no Hatcher, but he does hit… even if it’s not always legal, the leafs very badly need a defenseman that will hit.

    Also hearing Tverdovsky will sign with the Leafs, I don’t really like that idea, but I think it will still happen.

    Kaberle Marchment

    McCabe Tverdovsky

    Coliacovo Berg

    If the Leafs are willing to give Wesley more years:

    Marchment Wesley

    McCabe Kaberle

    Coliacovo Tverdovsky

    The 2nd list looks pretty decent, and although not my choice, still fairly likely if the rumblings are true.

    holy crap yeah, and in bars too lol

    u dont have to prove that i am an idiot man, i know!

  10. Tradedude says:

    i know eh lol

  11. Tradedude says:

    ????? what the… lol

  12. dlo44 says:

    that is because they dont have to rely on them as much because they have so much talent taking up all the ice time, when you got lidstrom,chelios, hatcher and fischer playing 55 minutes a game you could have tie domis great grandmother playing with anders eriksson with minimal damage. the leafs arent nearly talented enough to pull that one out. you are the deush.
