There one top 6 winger away from being contenders (and a couple of depth moves of coarse).
This week has been a good one for the Leafs, which was much need after much termoil and chaos in Leafnation during their long losing skid. Whats even better is that the Sens went on a longer losing skid then the Leafs, yet they keeping trying to rip on the Leafs.

I’m getting sick of hearing people say how Bob Gainey should move to get Vinny Lecavalier.Same old song and dance:”Gainey should trade Ryder,Huet and Streit for Vinny!”.Guys,Lecavalier is the best player in the NHL right now and Peter Pocklington ins’t in hockey anymore.So Lecavalier ain’t going anywhere until,at least,the end of his contract.
