Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
Here are some experienced onetime NHL executives who could help the Leafs map out an action plan for the team’s long-term future by becoming the club’s interim General Manager in place of John Ferguson for the remainder of this season.
OK…Here goes my little rant on possible moves…
1stly – Kaberle has not been playing like the player of old, many teams covet him…the San Jose connection seems possible. I say look at Washighton!!.. Ovechkin is going to be signed to an offer sheet for crazy money somewhere come the summer…why not beat everyone to the punch! as I’m sure someone will. I mean if you sell off to Washington for OV at least you have a franchise player.
Amid word that the Toronto Maple Leafs may be willing to trade him, forward Mats Sundin tells Toronto Sun’s Lance Hornby that he has no intentions of asking for a move out of town.
“That’s very safe to say,” Sundin said. “I didn’t sign a one-year deal last summer to (better accommodate a trade), I want to be a Leaf.”
The Sun Media is reporting that it may be time for the Leafs to clear house.
Coming from a true die hard Flyers fan, I am tired of the Leafs articles on here, and when I came across this one, it explains exactly what the Leafs should do with Mats Sundin so we don’t need about 100 more articles until he gets traded.
Given their current predicament, there really is only one unthinkable result to this season for the Maple Leafs.
That would be to miss the Stanley Cups playoffs – already a likely result – and then allow Mats Sundin to walk out the door as an unrestricted free agent at season’s end.
Now that I have seen the full segment on this, I decided to re-write my original article. According to Al Strachan, Russian-Canadian Billionaire Alexander Schnaider has inquired about purchasing at lea
I was watching The Spin with Steve Kouleas, Steve Ludzik and Al Strachan on The Score tonight. Well, I don’t usually pay attention to these guys but something quite interesting caught my eye. According to at least Strachan anyways, Russian Billionaire Roman Abramovich is interested in buying MLSE. And he isn’t just any old Russian Billionaire, Abramovich is the same person who tried buying the Vancouver Canucks a few years ago but failed.
A little history on Abramovich. According to a Russian finance magazine, as of January 2007, Abramovich’s worth is apparently over 21 Billion dollars. Abramovich also bought Chelsea FC of the English Soccer Premiership and immediately poured funds into the team in order to produce a winner. Money is no option for Abramovich as he reportedly offered AC Milan over 89 million dollars for one single player (Andrei Shevchenko). Abramovich is also an owner of the CSKA Moscow soccer club.
With the recent injury to Toskola , and both raycroft and clemmenson playing worse then trevvor kidd did in 03/04. Why not give Pogge a chance, the kid has been playing well for the marlies this year with a 12-2-4 record and a .909 save percentage why not give him a chance to show us what he gots. What do you guys think?
There are many articles posted that offer Joe Random’s two cents on their favourite team and how they should trade for Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovenchkin. A lot of these articles come from ignorant leaf fans such as myself. Unfortenetly for those of you who are looking for an article that insists that John Ferguson Jr. should trade our garbage for pure goal scorers and first round picks, that is not the type of article this is. Hopefully this will inform leaf fans such as myself as too where the leafs stand and how the team can improve.
According to TFP Boston is looking to add some dept to there team since losing some key players due to injuries. They are will tp part with kessel Axelson, or draft pickpropects.
Well, after the Leafs have lost 3 straight including getting blown out of the water by the NY Rangers 6-1, it seems nobody has and interest in Raycroft anymore. Well, that can’t be trouble because if he keeps playing like he is now, the Leafs could just place him on waivers and sign Cujo to backup Toskala.
(I am wrighting this as of December 31st, 2007, morning). What I think, is that as of now, the Leafs don’t have a chance at the playoffs. Well let’s look at it here, for the first half of the season (2007
