I’m posting this more as a fun topic, I am not “crying” or “whining” it was simply an email I received and thought it was “oh so true” and worthy of posting on this Maple Leafs board. But I’m sure many anti-Leaf fans will (as always) be on here ready to bash….kinda makes you wonder why they’re checking the “Leafs Rumor” Board though.
The Rangers have fallen off the playoff charts and Glen Sather has been very quite. The facts are simple and it is that Shanhan is a waste without at least one player on his line that can make things happen.
The Rangers seem to have found a 3rd line, and have always had a 1st line. But the 2nd line for the Rangers is the biggest joke in hockey. Not to mention the power play.

Just read some of Ecklunds rumours and hes saying the Habs are a possibility for Bertuzzi. Personally i’d rather them go after Shane Doan or why not try and sign Jason Allison. He had almost a point per game last year. I’m hoping Gainey does something soon because there are too many under-achievers and almost as many over-achievers.
For the last two years I’ve frequented boards with a lot of Ranger fans under the name “GeraldRFord”, and yes, I do get people calling me a zombie lately, but the Ranger fans at a particular board seem to think the season is over for the Rangers.
Now this is just my view, and in no way am I saying this is the only way to build a successful team.
In order to be a competitive team now and every year is to achieve a cycle in the organization. The cycle would be the older leaders and warriors, the middle players biting at the heels of the elders, the younger players who are still learning, and the upcoming prospects looking to make the big team. This article is an attempt to see how close the Leafs are to achieving that.
