Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
Sorry for yet another Leaf article but if you don’t like it, don’t read it. As evidenced by my name, I’m a Habs fan. BUT, I am also a Hockey Fan first and foremost and as much as I enjoy watching the Leafs suffer(As I know Leaf fans enjoyed how the Habs suffered through the late 90’s and early 00’s) it’s unnatural that the 2nd oldest Franchise can’t seem to get on track.
Its two days before the trade deadline, and their has been only three major deals–> stillman, and commodore to ottawa for eaves, and corvo to carolina and modry to philadelphia for a 3rd round draft pick in 2008 going to l.a. and jim vandermeer to calgary for a 3rd round draft pick in 2009 going to philadelphia.
You guys just dont get it, do you.. I am so so tired of hearing all you talking heads left and right complaining about how its an injustice to leaf nation if Mats isnt moved by the deadline. I mean you guys are so ridiculously blind, its getting to the point where its borderline embaressing.. And thats no joke..
Attention Cliff (or whoever is calling the shots……..petty Peddie) and fans of the TML……………when and if Captain Mats is traded to a contender with actual hockey players on their roster don’t hold your breath for his return in the off season. Do you really believe that if Sundin gets a chance to be flanked by guys who know how to put the biscuit in the basket he would want to come back to T-Dot to be reunited with Jonas Hoglund or whoever the next pilon is that MLS&E try to tell you is a front line, top caliber winger who deserves to play with Lucky Number 13.
After a embrassing defeat against Florida the Leafs would not let Montreal or Detroit throw them around like rag dolls.The reason why the Leafs lost to Florida is because they let Florida get their chances and let Florida push them around.In the game against Montreal the Leafs re a whole different team.They played one of their best games in awhile.Today I thought the Leafs played pretty solid game against the Leagues best team.
Everybody knows that Mats Sundin can’t be traded without waiving his no trade clause 1st therefore he won’t just go anywhere, he’ll only go to a team that have a ligitament chance of winning the stanley cup. Last year the demand was really high for young prospects and draft picks that trend will continue again this year and there is nobody better at this years deadline then Mats Sundin, if the leafs do trade Sundin they must get at least a prospect and a 1st round draft pick. Here are some trades that will benefit both teams including Sundin and some other leafs
Ok, here we go. I almost consider my self an expert on the Leaves, so I’m gonna give you my take on the moves that will be made in the following weeks.
You can forget about moving McCabe Kubina and Kaberle( Why would you wanna move kabby anyways?). So here are players that have good chances of being moved.
[Note: I do not believe that any of this will happen, but some of it might. The point is, it is now much more fun to speculate about the future of the Leafs - especially now with the potential of having names like Stamkos, Doughty, Brunnstrom, etc. in a Leaf uniform.]
For Leaf fans who have demanded change for a long time, one must keep their heads on straight (after all Peddie is still around and nothing substantial has happened). But it is also a fun time to be a Leaf fans JUST FOR THE VERY POTENTIAL of change swirling in the air. Below is a typical leaf plan that we often see posted here on HTR. However, the format is NOT so much a plan as a potential scenario, and there are some assumptions that have been made …
Following the Leafs win Saterday night against the Senators, I realized just how interesting it is to be a Leaf fan now a days.
