Trade Talks Getting to Antropov

The Toronto Sun is reporting that all of the trade talk is beginning to get to Antropov. According to the article the trade talk is in the back of his mind and it is noted that if he is going to be moved before the March 4th trade deadline the amount of time that he has left with the Leafs is ticking by quite quickly.

Antropov is getting chances it is just that he is not converting on the ones that he is getting. At present he is in the middle of a 16 game goal drought.

The article concludes that this may indeed be a good time to deal Antropov because of the switch in regime in terms of management and the desire for the Leafs management to start fresh one player at a time.

    You could see the frustration on his face in the last game. All the talk seems to be getting to him. TRADE HIM ALREADY!

    Antopov is a player that played with great players, one being Mats Sundin. Antopov can bounce back no worries. He will also bring a lot back to the leafs when he gets traded. Antopov will proably put in a package deal probably to columbus, chicago or philly.

    I told you this was gonna happen. The Laughs are stuck with Antropov. What a shame. See this is how the Habs are different. Gainey knows what he's doing and the Habs are awesome.The Habs are making the playoffs again I'm proud to announce.

    give me a brake – Antropov is a 6'6 player who can score 20+ goals a season! He is as good or Gooder then Guillaume Latendresse – right now anyway we all no at the end of the big Gui's career he will be one of the top 5 power forwards.

    Of all the players on the Laffs this year I think Antropov has the most value and lets not beat around the bush if Danius Zubrus was worth a first round draft pick Antropov is – and yes the Habs are going to make the playoffs if the laffs did make the playoffs it'd be a feat seeing as their team sucks worser then the Kingston Frontenacs.

    You are stoopid.

    Your a loser.

    wtf are you?
    Just plain annoying is what you are.

  10. LEAFSLEAFSLEAFS1967 says:

    Wow you almost managed to sound like you knew something, until you mentioned him as being a top 5 power forward. I hope you dont mean of all time. I doubt he'll be a top 5 power forward among the active players when he is in his prime, much less of all time.

    The "stoopid" comment didn't really make you look too smart either.

    I'm sorry, I didn't realize that the fact that all except for 2 players in Montreal have less goals than Antropov (Lang and Andrei Kostitsyn) makes Gainey look amazing but makes Antropov look horrible. Even your supposed great players in Higgins, Plekanec, S. Kostitsyn, Kovalev have less goals than him. What does that say about the habs?

    Let me break it down. Antropov has 8 more points than Kostitsyn, 1 less than Lang. Lang is the only player wth more goals AND points than Antropov. So if you read that and do the math you could say Antropov = better than anyone on the Canadiens except for Lang (Not really better just different playing styles) and Markov (all-star type player, better than Antro) Antropov isn't the problem, it's the rest of the team.

    NIKKY ANTROPOV BREAKS THE GOALLESS STREAK FINALLY!!! lmao seriously it was about time. Maybe he finally got his concentration back and can contribute again.

  13. Kramer says:

    Maybe Antropov's slump was because of marriage problems. A lot of wives give good headache.

  14. greatlife15 says:

    You forgot Kostopolous and Big Gay I mean Big Gui.

  15. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    god, it is so nice to see weak goals at the OTHER end of the ice.

    Its also nice to see someone other than the moore line score goals (allthough they had 3 0f 7)

  16. GoLeafs13 says:

    A lot of them also give good head lol

  17. NHLSlayer says:

    Sundin is a born loser.  He had his ONE monent, at the Olympics a few years ago.  People need to wake up and realize that losing follows Sundin around like a big black cloud.

    He played for the Quebec Nordiques… nuff said.

    Then, 14 years in Toronto, no improvement there.

    Now, he's in Vancouver, where he instantly turned that team from a contender in the west, to a team that doesn't look like it will even be playing hockey in April.

    When will people wake up?

  18. NHLSlayer says:

    He's just a moron who gets to live up to his name.  It's funny how the internet will do that..

  19. assman says:

    your jelous because i'm always right. i make the smartest points. every body is trying to keep up. but my ideas are the most right

  20. LEAFSLEAFSLEAFS1967 says:

    Probably fewer than you think haha

  21. leafy says:

    Haha!  And with two leaky goalies playing, it's no wonder we had 11 goals scored. Good old fashioned 1970s hockey.
