After my post on the Habs top 5 revelations so far this year, here is a list of the 5 players that have been underachieving so far this season.
They say that there are no simple solutions to the Leafs woes. But I’m not that sure that the answer is all that hard. Every one and their mothers have had an opinion on what the Leafs should do. Most jounalists are crying for Richard Petty’s head on a platter. It’s been stated that the leafs need to rid themselves of petty in favor of a Colagelo type manager.
We have heard countless times of how the Leafs are near the cap limit, and I have viewed a few sights but each have different numbers on how close they are. The typical amount amount i’ve seen is 200 000 of cap space left (I will not confirm this number as i do not know the true salary Figures) We also all know how much money our beloved Buds make annually, so this is why i suggest the following.
Richard Peddie has yet to become the villain that JFJ is but I can see it going that way soon. To me Richard Peddie has become the latest version of Harold Ballard. Maybe not to the extent of Ballard but he has done little to help this team.
First off look what he did to the Raptors by appointing HIS man to the post of GM of that team. Rob Bab***** was hands down the worst GM in Raptors short history. Peddie allowed the Raptors to become the joke of the NBA. Also proving he knows nothing on how to run a basketball team.
Second he appoints JFJ as GM of the Leafs. JFJ has done absolutely nothing for this team but burden the Leafs with foolish contracts and trade away the future for nothing that is helping the team now. In the last four years JFJ has dealt away three of the four first round picks in the Leetch, Raycroft, and Toskala deals. Also he has not made a single deal to further the franchise.
