Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors

Sundin, Raycroft and More

Well.. I have heard a lot about trading Sundin and I have to disagree, look at Edmonton, they are a train wreck, Sundin is the center of the team and he can not be traded, i saw a topic earlier about him being the only guy to stand Torontos media and be able to lead the team and I totally agree…

Peter Forsberg High Risk, High Reward Not for Leafs However

Peter Forsberg is most easily described as a High Risk, High Reward player. For every team he has been with this has been the case. High Risk because of all his injuries and High Reward… well watch the man play in the playoffs. His Philidalphia time was completely injury plauged and only a matter of time should he stay in Nashville which as you will read in this article I dont think he will.

Walk the Walker

A lot, I repeat a lot of talk has circulated about, what the Leafs are going to do now. Well, the Leafs always talk the talk, but can they walk the walk too? In other years, the moves have not lived up to the hype, but maybe, just maybe the Leafs will this year.

WHAT WILL THE LEAFS DO ?

With the leafs not making the playoffs their will be some retooling that will be needed but what will the leafs do ? They need to resign Boyd Devereaux, John Pohl, Nik Antropov, Bates Battaglia, Carlo Colaiacovo, Ian White. N

So what now?

This post is not for the main page, but if it finds itself there, lets try and keep it objective or just don’t respond.

Well as I sit here, the Ilses have defeated the Devils in a shootout to claim 8th spot in the East. A shootout to decide the fate of both teams seasons is not a scenario that i looked forward to, but it happened, and thats how it goes in the “new NHL”.

Epilogue/Prologue for the Leafs

It is very easy (and fun) for us Leaf fans to get caught up in the short term. Especially when that short term sees the Leafs and Habs battle it out in a showdown on Hockey Night in Canada. There is no other word to describe then ‘fun.’ and maybe – ‘intense.’ But with both Leaf and Hab fans must realize (and many do) is that all of this – the playoff race, the showdown, the melodrama in Montreal, the inconsistency/injuries in Toronto – are all very much meaningless. [Note: this article, written on Friday April 6th, might be posted AFTER the results from the Habs/Leaf game]

why we need Sundin

There is a lot of talk that the leafs should part ways with Sundin and focus on the future. I am here to write that parting with Sundin at this moment will not help us but hurt us more at the present time and in the near future. Reason being we do not have that next star to take over the Maple Leafs, There is no clear or forseable star waitin or up and coming. Everytime since the 90s the leafs have traded a star player another one was ready to take over. Lets take a look.

What to do with McCabe in the off-season

Bryan McCabe is not worthh 5.75mill a season average and most certainly not worth 7.1 this season an next. So lets provide HOPEFULLY our new GM in the off-season with some ideas assuming jfj will (please god) be FIRED.

Nessessary Changes For The Leafs Off-season

First things first, I have to point out some of the Leafs faults during this season.
First: Not being able to bounce back after a big win. Yes I know how much this frustrates you but it is true the leafs have a serious over confidence issue. Think about anytime beat someone by a 5 or more goal difference they lost the next game.

Changes needed

first move: fire john *****in furgason (jfj) he has not produced any star talent and has overpaid for some of the crap that wear a leaf uniform.
second move. Gotta move McCabe some way…i know he has a no movement clause but if u tell a player ur not wanted here anymore he’ll probably waive it…what u can get is a whole different story..
3rd move gill he does not block shots, hit, move the puck and gets caught in the offensive soon….as he did today when the flyers scored the first goal.
4th move stajan…he’s young has some value so we could get something for him….there is no room for him on the leaf roster….sundin, wellwood, peca and pohl….and i would not switch anyone one of those guys for stajan..

6 Wins and the Leafs are In….Maybe

With 2 weeks remaining in the regular season the playoff picture is far from being set in stone. One team in a dogfight is the Toronto Maple Leafs. Thanks to some loose play the last few of weeks that resulted in them throwing away winnable games, Toronto has put themselves in a position where they need to win at least 6 of their final 7 games to make the playoffs. Amassing at least 94 points puts greater pressure on their competitors and basically allows the Leafs to control their own destiny. Anything less would mean leaning far too heavily on other teams to help them out.

What I think

The leafs have 2 options,
1)keep the team they have now, and hope for a healthy year next year

2)get some juicy free agents

Realistic Maple Leafs Offseason

This is what I think the leafs offseason should be like. There have been guys that write articles like this but put totally unrealistic numbers for player salaries. THESE PLAYER SALARIES AND TRADES ARE REALISTIC UNLIKE SOME OTHER POSTS…this is assuming the salary cap next year will be 47 million.

The Off-Season Plan

The Leafs had a chance this year to stock up on young players and draft picks, Mats Sundin and Darcy Tucker were both highly desirable assets, but Tucker signed a 4-year deal and Mats Sundin is a pending UFA, the trade deadline has passed. With the cap going up and the amount of free agents out there the Leafs can make an impact this off-season, the best we can do is to be a 4th-10th place team in the East.

Leafs offseason

I wanted to know, how realistic it would be to try and resign most of the Leafs upcoming free agents. So, here goes…

TML = 8TH IN EC!

Like the GM of the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2005-2006 Season I am stating the Toronto Maple Leafs will, in fact, make the Playoffs and land the 8TH Spot!

GUTLESS LEAFS ARE KILLING HOCKEY

I’m sitting here in disgust at the end of the second period of the Maple Leafs-Senators game.
