matrix2003: Those Forgotten PlayersROBERTS BACK SOON, BUT PROBLEMS LOOM LARGE

Gary Roberts is recovering nicely and should be back in the line-up in the next few weeks. I know the decision to send a player backto the farm isn’t really too hard. My personal opinion sees Paul Healey going back. The real question is, will they re-unite the playoff line from last season. I would love to see the lines as follows.





Anyone notice a problem? No Domi! Hmmm… Looks like we have a problem on our hands. We could send Antropov back down, but that would make Quinn look like the laughing stock of the league. Looks like the only way out of this one is to trade some bodies. Look for a trade in the Leafs system in the very near future. The Leafs will have a solid playoff line-up once Quinn is done toying. Look for the Leafs to be back in the Conference Finals this year. (leafazoid29)


Some forget (some don’t) that there are a lot a talent players that can help a playoff bound or playoff contender, in their run for the Cup or a Playoff spot, here’s a list of some of those overlooked players:

1) Keith Carney, Anahiem (Awesome Defensively)

2) Steve Rucchin, Anahiem (Good Two-way Forward)

3) Frantisek Kaberle, Atlanta (Solid Offense/Defense)

4) Patrik Stefan, Atlanta (Great Defense/Decent Offense/Young)

5) Chris Gratton, Buffalo (Solid 2nd Liner)

6) James Patrick, Buffalo (Almost done, one last run)

7) Rod Brind’Amour, Carolina (solid offense, one of the best in Defense and Faceoffs)

8) Greg Devries, Colorado (great defensively, not available though?)

9) Greg Johnson, Bill Houlder, Yachmenev, S. Walker > Nashville

10) Shane Doan, Phoenix (Great D)
