Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
This is my first posting after being a fan of the site for a long time!
I know some of you are saying not another leafs post, but it is not really what you might expect! True, I am a leafs fan, and I am happy to see Ferguson has been fired. However, I have been following the recent developments pertaining to MLSE and the Leafs.
I have noticed that a lot of Leafs fans on here are hailing Fletcher as the new king in Leaf Land but I must disagree. Sure he will make some changes as the new interim GM, but is it really goin to help. The leafs are 3rd last in the NHL and by no means are they gonna make the playoffs this year or the next couple unless for some miracle they make a blockbuster trade which gives them a few first rounders.
Whoever they choose as the new GM before next season is going to have to have some credibility in the NHL.
This time, I’ll pass on the koolaid because I’m not buying this for a second. The mystery of Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment remains unresolved and not even Sherlock Holmes or Horatio Caine would be able to figure this one out.
It is so good to hear the news … finally. Although Peddie, Tanenbaum, and the rest of the circus still exist, Mr. Fletcher will have the power required to raise the ship.
Mr. Fletcher, don’t listen to the nimrods trash talking you here in Toronto. These people just need to have their opinions heard to keep their jobs. Listen to the guys at hockeytraderumors.com, they know what is going on.
TSN is reporting that the Leafs brass had a meeting Monday and there will be an announcement today on who will be the new GM. Here is the Link. I heard a rumor today that it will be Doug MacLean as the new GM. If so, do you think he is the right fit for the Leafs?
The wheels have fallen off and this season appears to be gone. Leafs Nation is calling for blood, starting from the top down, or down up, or anything to prove that MLSE wants to win a cup. I agree with my fellow Leafs fans, change is required now, but I must say that I do not agree with people still defending Sundin.
Almost two years ago I wrote the following article.
It is disturbing to me today that I was right all along. By no means am i trying to boast being a hockey expert. On the contrary, I am simply stunned that if the common fan was able to see this demise back in early 2006, how come a bunch of wealthy, smart business men could not?
TheFourthPeriod.com is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs are thinking about hiring former Columbus Blue Jackets GM Doug MacLean as their new full-time GM.
If the Maple Leafs tailspin calls for the firing of JFJ weren’t bad enough in Toronto, the team’s fans got another punch in the gut from an interview with Scotty Bowman on Saturday night.
The Leafs are in a position to have a good season in 08-09, but not in the standings.
Apparently the Toronto Maple Leafs feel bringing an old face in can possibly help the team out of its latest flunk, and you can also add the New York Rangers as well to the list of teams interested in Curtis Joseph.
In this article I will give a possible solution of how to turn the Leafs around, so that they are not forever a mediocre team.
This was reported by Eklund from hockeybuzz.com, so take it for what it is. The article stated that the Leafs have cancelled the team photo which was scheduled for this afternoon. I am one to jump the gun, so I’m going to say that there are changes coming in Leaf Land, if not now, then in the near future. What are your thoughts on the cancellation?
So who really is running things in Leafland like I’ve stated before, Peddie, or JFJ. John Ferguson still has a job. But he has no real power left.
