Fans to blame for the Maple Leafs free fall?
Many Leaf fans, as many do when in their shoes; have blamed Maple Leafs General Manager, John Ferguson Jr. for the awful play from the members of the blue & white. Some have even extended an extra finger at Paul Maurice, Richard Peddie and part owner, Larry Tanenbaum. So much finger pointing has been going on lately it’s hard to remember who we’re blaming for what and why. But thus is the life of a Maple Leaf fan. Leaf fans are the only fans in pro sports who each think that they are the actual GM, and in some ways, they’re right.
This might be a bit delayed but it has been bugging me for a while now. This wont be that long of a text but i just need to get this out there, and see other peoples input about this as well. Now there’s no doubt that Toronto has faced a majority of backup goaltenders during the duration of the season thus far, but with everyone saying that Toronto is made up of “2 career backup goaltenders” wouldn’t that mean that the teams that have faced us thus far have faced backup goalies as well?
The habs have alot of goaltending and need a sniper or power forward. With the emergence of Carey Price, would he be ready to be #1 with a veteran behind him?
If Mats Sundin dosen’t retire before the end of the season, sportsnet.ca reported that Sundin likes it in Toronto and wants to stay there for the rest of the 2007-08 season. And since he has a NTC, the Leafs can’t decide whether they want to trade him or not. He said Toronto is his home, and he said while he was playing in Toronto, he never considered playing anywhere else. So, stop making up rumours about Sundin being traded somewhere else!
HE’S BIG, EXTEMELY HARD TO KNOCK OFF THE PUCK, AND HAS GREAT STICK HANDLING ABILITY…..GIVEN THE CHANCE, THIS KID CAN SCORE 30 GOALS…PUT HIM IN ANY OTHER SITUATION BESIDES MONTREAL AND HIS POTENTIAL AS A SNIPER WOULD BE HANDLED WITH WAY MORE PATIENCE AND THE WHOLE “HE’S ONLY HERE BECAUSE HE’S FRENCH” DEBAUCLE WOULDN’T EXIST…….TAKE AWAY THE FACT HE’S NOT GUY LAFLEUR, THAT NO ONE EXPECTS HIM TO BE, AND HE’S JUST ANOTHER YOUNG POWER FORWARD WORKING HIS WAY TO A SOLID NHL CAREER……SERIOUSLY PEOPLE, WHAT DID YO EXPECT FROM HIM?
