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.
In light of the recent suspension of Flyers forward Scott Hartnall, I decided to make Trade Rumours 11 to lighten the mood on the HTR Main Page. So, here it is.
Here is how I think the 2008 All Stars will look. We all know that each team is required to have one representative thus not all the best players make it. Here is a list of who I think the NHL will put on the team. Post your opinions on who I omitted, who the league might omit, and who you think should be on the team.
With 13 wins under their belt Montreal is looking like they will most likely make the playoffs. Also I don’t think Montreal is getting the respect they deserve considering they were predicted to finish close to last in the east. December will be a big test for Montreal, it will pretty much give them an idea where they will finish at the end of the season and probably decide who is the dead wieght on the team…
For the past few days and going back weeks we have all heard the countless stories and rumours to come out of Toronto on what will happen to our beloved Toronto Maple Leafs. Columnist like Damian Cox, Steve Simmons etc. have made outrageous predictions on who will coach or manage this team but personally I believe nothing will happen.
Well first off, i understand i will take a lot of heat for writing down my opinion but hopefully many of you see my point. Lets get right to it, Trade Sundin its that simple. Heres the reason in why i believe the Leafs should let, in my opinion the greatest leaf in the history go. This guy for countless years upon years has put his heart and soul on the crease of the Maple Leaf, He’s been a leader since day one, he may not be the most vocal but he leads by example.
Flyers have extended a contract to Braydon Coburn for two years at $2.6 mil. The cap hit will be 1.3mil a year.
Bad apples spoil a bunch.
Its just a saying,,, but it is getting too much play in the NHL.
The flyers are NOT evil.
Now this is coming from a person who has watched Bergeron play every NHL game of his career, as well as Alberts- and is heart sick over what must be going through Bergy’s mind and that of his families. It is one thing to loose an NHL career, but worse to loose a peaceful life.
I said the best thing for the leafs is some consistency, and now they have that.
Now that the weekend has rolled over, lets look at the entire story.
