The Quickest Fix for Leafs.

Frankly, this season is done. Sure the leafs could have an above average second half, make the playoffs and get knocked out in the first round with the team they have, but WHY? So then in 2008-2009 you bring back the same cast of clowns and do it all again, sneak in the playoffs and get crushed by a contending opponent. We must rebuild and now is the perfect time.

1) I will not discuss the GM I dont care who does tho following things as long as they get done

2) Antropov. Finally producing, value will never be higher. Contender may dump a pick and prospect for the BIG scoring winger.

3) Sundin. This will be his last great season. His value will only diminish from here. Either a top notch player (Jordan Staal) or and 1st round pick and top prospect could be fetched for Sundin’s services.

The rest of the forwards are either not easily moved (Bell, Blake, Tucker) or are part of the future (Steen Stajan Wellwood) So we move to the D.

McCabe will never be moved. Kaberle shouldn’t be, his contract is reasonable. White and Carlo are the future.

4) Kubina. If anyone will take him please deal him. He is a good player but not a 5 mil player. A team with lots under the cap making a run should give him a look. he could be a #2 Dman.

5) Gill. I don’t care if he is traded. If he can’t bring lots in return hold onto him. he is a valuable PK guy, good teammate and could be a perfect fit for a team needing to round out it D corps with a veteran. A pick and low-level prospect would suffice.

Raycroft cannot be dealt. Wait for the offseason and try to deal then. These moves would leave the leafs with at least 2 first rounder, 2 second rounders, 2 thrid rounders and 3 more good prospects. Not to mention it would give Tlusty, newbury williams, stralman added roles and a chance to learn in the NHL. Also, our pick would only move higher with these moves and we could get a better player in the draft.

    Plus you're on record for being a liar, as the links showed.

  2. Gamble says:

    Only an insecure moron would bring polictics onto a hockey board.

  3. Gamble says:

    And what lie would that be, if you can explicitly prove I lied I'll deactivate my account.

  4. leafy says:

    No, only an insecure moron would be offended by someone's reaction to direct taunting of USA, USA……on a Team Canada post.  And you say you're Canadian.  WHAT A ****ING MORON!!!

  5. leafy says:

    I already provided the links.  Unlike you, people can read and judge for themselves.

    ********ALERT 2*********

    I would like to revise my earlier warning.  Please add Pronger44 to the list.

    He's the one who started the whole thing with his "USA, USA" taunting on a post about Team Canada.

    He's a big ***hole too.

    Sincerely yours,

    leafy

  7. leafy says:

    Just wanted to add that Pronger44 says he's Canadian.

    So why would he taunt like that?  Because he's a ****ing jerk, that's why.

  8. Gamble says:

    Nice, well I can now rest assured your claim was nothing more than cry-baby antics.

  9. Gamble says:

    Your such a cry baby.

  10. leafy says:

    That's fine and dandy, coming from a sensitive prick like you.

  11. leafy says:

    A sensitive idiot calling me a cry baby?  That's fine.

  12. NHLSlayer says:

    The really funny thing about this putz is that he does this being a Pronger fan, yet, last year WHILE ANAHEIM WAS PLAYING IN THE STANLEY CUP FINAL, there was an article on CNN, interviewing people on a beach IN ANAHEIM, and hardly any of them could even NAME THE DAMN TROPHY THE TEAM WAS COMPETING FOR!

  13. Gamble says:

    Don't worry about it sweetheart, you're the little girl thats running around searching for some validation. The more we argue the more people hate us which is fine by me.

  14. 92-93 says:

    ok, but a statement like "t's not the players faults its Maurice, he's an idiot" has to be addressed.

    you will probably get your wish of Maurice being fired … or, at least, its more likely that he'll be fired before Ferguson, who will quickly follow once another coach comes in and gets similar results.
    OR, another coach comes in, the team plays well under him temporarily – even getting into the playoffs but the longer term ills of the team (lack of overal depth, prospect depth, overall team defense) catches up to them in a real hurry.
    under quinn, the leafs had the same problems but more salary to work with. in his final year when the cap was implemented, the leafs missed the playoffs. 
    the fact of the matter is that this is a very mediocre team and its Ferguson's and the ownership's fault. Maurice is to be blamed as well, but firing does nothing to solve the larger, long-term problem.

    i put the effort to put some thought into my posts, the least you can do is do the same. if not, god forbid, you'll get ignored the next time.

    if you genuinely want to talk hockey and discuss or debate the game, i'm all ears and i'll put the effort into doing that. if not, then there is no point in responding. so this is the last chance.
    there are too many people like you on hockey websites that take up space. so if you respond the way you typically respond, this will be my last post to you. your loss, not mine.
  16. NHLSlayer says:

    6-1, wasn't that the EXACT same score that the Leafs BEAT the Rangers by two weeks ago?

    I mean goddamn, can't we make sure that people have an IQ that is at least in double digits before they are allowed to post here?

    Pronger is sitting at home, with one hand on the keyboard, and the other hand, I really don't want to know where, giggling and laughing about getting Leaf fans upset, because he knows that from the security of his home, he can say whatever he wants, no matter how asinine, and get away with it.  People, just ignore him, he has proven time and time again just how ridiculous he sounds, and he continues to bash Leaf fans, while at the same time bringing pipe dreams like Ovechkin to Montreal here to the site.  This person has NEVER contributed ANYTHING to this site that is worthwhile, and is merely a plague.

    This guy couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions printed on the heel. Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight.

  17. lukeleim says:

    For crying out loud… would you quit it already with the alerts. Nobody cares that Pronger44 and Gambler are douche bags. Just ignore them if they're upsetting you that much.

  18. Gamble says:

    Be careful, I'm the boogeyman.

  19. Pronger44 says:

    leafy, I ain’t on here to start stuff. Like I said numerous times, I’M A FAN OF THE GAME OF HOCKEY, I LOVE IT OK, AND WHEN I GOT PEOPLE LIKE YOU ALWAYS MAKING COMMENTS ABOUT ANYTHING I SAY OBVIOUSLY I’M GONNA HAVE A SMARTASS COMMENT BACK FOR YOU, SO PLEASE, QUIT BOTHERING ME, IM TIRED OF THIS, I WANNA TALK HOCKEY, I ALREADY HAVE MY WIFE *****ING EVERYDAY ALREADY, I DONT NEED YOU ON A SITE I ENJOY COMING TO AS WELL, SO CAN IT, PLEASE.

  20. Pronger44 says:

    See what I mean. People like you and your comments, and you expect me to just sit there when your calling me a douche bag…. honestly this is b.s. and quit gettin me involved in arguments.

  21. Pronger44 says:

    I live in Thunder Bay, 5 hours from Dryden, where Chris Pronger is from, maybe if you met him, knew him a bit, you wouldn’t have such a chip on your shoulder about him.

  22. Pronger44 says:

    Sorry about being an idiot. My main reason for doing this was due to leafy and his rudeness towards me due to I being a Canadiens fan. Sorry to offend, and I’ll try to keep it between leafy and I from now on.

  23. leafy says:


    O.k., Pronger I'm cool with that.  Peace treaty.

  24. Pronger44 says:

    Little behind their, I think Tallon said that about a week and a half ago, if you checked my post then you would know what I’m talking about, not NEW news there bud.

  25. Pronger44 says:

    thanks man.

  26. leafy says:

    Happy New Year!!!

  27. lafleur10 says:

    same to you leafy!!HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    And who says the quality of this site is going down faster than Paris Hilton on a camcorder?
    I mean, what hockey sites actually discuss hockey and not their wives or political disagreements? That would be just stupid!
    http://www.hfboards.com for all of you who are sick of this place…

  29. Pronger44 says:

    Who has said their sick of this place besides you saying that just now dummy.

  30. leafy says:

    I'll take responsibility for that.  But I beg to differ.  For the most part, the discussion on this site is pretty good.

  31. 92-93 says:

    no prob.

    i'm very happy to hear that.

    we all descend a little bit in some of our posts and get into it with others. its just, lately, on this site it gets a little tiring once in awhile because there seems to be more and more of it. i dunno what it is.

    maybe the collective age of the people on this site is getting younger? that can actually and truly be what is happening.

    in any case, i'm happy to debate or argue on anything hockey-related and i am a very strong, harsh critic of my leafs, to whom i am also very loyal to.
    i am also a HUGE fan of what the Habs have done under Gainey and although i dont think the leafs should do exactly the same thing, the philosphy needs to change in toronto.

  32. 92-93 says:

    i have been looking at a lot of other sites including hfboards but the only thing about those other sites is that the look and GUI of them really bugs me.

    i know that seems superficial but i just cant get used to the way they do posts and layout their topics and stuff.

    HTR is really good for that – too bad the quality has gone to crap these past couple of years.
