    Well it’s not like the caps need olie anyways lynchmob, cuz clarkie already gave him max ouilette…haha i hate philly….almost as much as the sens

  2. phat_matt says:

    That is such bull. Toronto does not need all three of those players and JFJ knows it. He would not be stupid enough to give up tele either. If any deals go down with the caps it will be only for gonchar. But if u ask me there are other d-men out there they should look at first.

  3. BayStBully says:

    Centomo, Hodson, Mike Minard…..

    “about whatever the Leafs do”.

    They haven’t done anything since ’67. They don’t make trades with Stand Pat Quinn yet their morons for fans think that everyone wants Renberg at the cost of Rob Blake and Joe Sakic. Enough already.

    For the one who said that w/o the Leaf stuff this site would be updated once a month: you say that like it’s a bad thing. At least then we’d have something to discuss.

    Just to end the rumors: the Leafs will not be acquiring the following…

    Wayne Gretzky

    Mario Lemieux

    Yvon Cournoyer

    Henri Richard

    Jean Beliveau

    Guy laFleur

    Joe Sakic

    Peter Forsberg

    Todd Bertuzzi

    Markus Naslund.

    That is all.

    those people who can’t stand “leafs talk” are just going to have to get used to it or shut themselves in a box to escape it

  6. SwiftLEAF says:

    I would strongly disagree with you that there is no chance of gonchar going to TO. There is a huge chance of that happening. Look at last year, we went and got big power foward Nolan. The player that I can’t see coming to TO is Kolzig.

  7. mojo19 says:

    yeah, he knows nothing

  8. mojo19 says:

    KidHenry – Alexei Kovalev is eligable for free agency this summer, why would he go to the Capitals who are missing the playoff’s? you’re an idiot.

  9. SwiftLEAF says:

    Wake up you idiot,

    haven’t you just seen the zhamnov for no one trade and the bondra for “some guy” trade.

    I don’t understand you people when say that these rumors are some of the worst but other teams are actually doing even worse trades.

    Your thought process makes no sense???????!!!!!!!!

  10. mojo19 says:

    SCHL… what a horrible joke. you’re a real idiot.

  11. mojo19 says:

    A big difference between what Alfredson did, and what Tie Domi did is that Domi and Jody Shelley are inforcer/tough guys. Alfredson and Sundin are respected captains, don’t compare the issues. What Domi did was funny, and you and others jokes have been done to death on this site. We get it, you think Leafs fans believe they can get a lot for nothing. Very clever…

  12. mojo19 says:

    (Applauding sharmuta44)

  13. mojo19 says:

    and they can always sign a free agent back-up, im sure a handful of backups will be available

  14. bruinexpert says:

    I was always under the impression that Todd Ford was the huge prospect in net…if that is the case then losing Tellqvist wouldn’t be that big of a deal,especially if they had Kolzig in net until Ford matures..if that backfires you pick up another goalie

  15. TrojanMan says:

    Its good to see the majority of leafs fans still have yet to return to reality. I mean, without them, all we could rag on would the Rangers and their fans and that gets old from time to time.

  16. nhl_trade_007 says:

    BY THE FU^K I’M SICK OFF ALL U IDIOTS SAYING OO I DIDN’T SEE IT ON TSN WELL GUESS AGIN LATE LAST NGIHT AND THIS MORNIGN ON “”””””TSN”””””” IMMEDIATLY AFTER IT SAID ABOUT BOUGHNER GOING TO FUC*ING COLARDO IT SAID THE LEAFS IN HIGH INTERSEST AND DEAL HAD BEEN TALKED BOUT INCLUDING KOLZIG/WITT/GONCHAR BUT DIDN’T STATE THE NAMES GOING TO WASHINGTON. THEY SAID IT WOULD BE 2-3 PLAYERS TOPS

  17. nhl_trade_007 says:

    DICK LICK GET UR FACTS STRAIGHT

    TO TORONTO: WIT GONCHAR AND KOVALEV

    TO WASHINGTON: ANTRAPOV WELLWOOD AND KIDD

    TO NEW YORK: KOLZIG

  18. chanman says:

    Gonchar, witt and Kolzig for

    Tellquist, antropov and wellwood.

    * Let me translate this.*

    High-scoring power play specialest defenceman, tough, gritty solid coveted defenceman, and proven #1 goaltender for Your backups- backup goalie, Mediocre centerman you couldnt give away, and a no-name AHL-er.

    TORONTO WAKE UP

    YOu have to like give the other team like a player who is like A GOOD player.

    toss in tucker and mcCabe and you might have a deal in the makings.

    Toronto rumors are so lame.

  19. nhl_trade_007 says:

    listen up jerk

    antrapovs a promising young right winger””” telliquest is the best goaltender coming up thought the system and colacivo is the the best defencemen in the ahl

    gonchar is good witt is ood and kolzig is junk

    so before u diss the leafs look at da standing………….then agin i guess ur to busy sucking cock to watch tsn and find out whats really going on

  20. nhl_trade_007 says:

    yeah then the leafs trade that draft pic back for the whole eam and the leafs sent da works to the ahl and only 2 stayed their messier had a heart attack on the bus and died lindros blew his nose and got a concuiion and retied and all the eurpeans were sent to the army….let me see that leave dunham he was sadly *accidentaly* ran over by the zamboni half way through practice

  21. wallet_inspector says:

    I could see this trade happening. I am a leaf fan, however, I can see past that and notice that this trade is benificial to both franchises. Let’s face it, the leafs have noooo future, with most of their stars retiring in the next couple of years, So they have to grab this years oppertunity with the roster they have and go for it. They have the money, the support and the team. Now on the other side, the caps are trying to lower thier teams collective salery with high prospects (made obvious by trading Bondra for “nothing”) , and ultimately a better future. With an addition like Antropov (a young, big foward with goal scoring capabilities ) Tellvquist (A young star with early experience) and wellwood (with a possible great future) this team could have a future while making it through a tough time in their franchise.

  22. greatlife15 says:

    no don’t say your a leafs fan or you’ll have ten people post things saying you are a dumb duck, change the d to something else.

  23. greatlife15 says:

    hey dummy, this has been reported by mckenzie and he’s not talking crap, so before you start hating look it up you stupid nobody.

  24. chanman says:

    MR. 007-

    Best goalie coming up? Tellquist? We are talking about the NHL here, no junior squirt league. the other player was wellwood, not coliavico. And ok, RW antropov the leafs have been trying to dump for years. It does not measure up to the three caps mentioned. Witt is a great Dman with experiance and kolzig is tailing off but has a coulple of seasons left. Would be a great backup and ok starter.

    I suggest you stop listening to tsn and clear your head of foolish toronto talk.

  25. eagle29 says:

    Nooooooooooooooo!Don’t trade Tellqvist!He’s doing awesome and hasn’t lost this year.He’ll be one the better goalies in years to come.

  26. Montrealsdogg says:

    i won’t even bother lowering myself to an uneducated, pathetic person that thinks his team is “all” that….

    Montreal was the only team to have “real” players? check your hockey books pal, you might learn alot…

  27. Montrealsdogg says:

    also, for your information… WW2 ended in 1945! Montreal won 5 Cup either before or during that time… the Dynasty was from 56-50, 11 years after WW2 ended… where’s your excuse now?

  28. mogilny_4_ever says:

    First things first….whoever said that it was gonna be witt/gonchar/kolzig for antropov/tellqvist/wellwood is an idiot…tsn didnt say it and either did any other source….i guarantee if this trade is going to go down there will definately be draft picks and probably another roster player….maybe berg or pilar……..

  29. mogilny_4_ever says:

    Hey! lynchbob it is on the tsn website dickface……click on NHL on tsn and then go to the bob mackenzie insider and it shows the article at the bottom……

    Wellwood a “no-name AHL-er”. He played for the Canadian juniors last year. He’s currently 20. How do you expect him to build up a name for himself in 1 season in the AHL? Hes a good prospect you fucking idiot.

    My view is that this deal will simply not happen. Rumors always abound as the NHL trading day deadline approaches, and this one seems too far-fetched for me to take seriously. TSN’s respected columnist Bob McKenzie calls this a “bizzare rumor.” I agree wholeheartedly.

    I feel that Washington Capitals’ defenceman Sergei Gonchar is definitely not the type of defenceman the Leafs need as they battle for top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Leafs’ lack of a strong defensive effort by their forwards and their defencemen demands that they acquire one or several defensive-minded defencemen prior to the NHL trading deadline.

    One player that the Toronto Maple Leafs should be interested in is Washington Capitals defenceman Brendan Witt. a solid, defensive-minded defenceman. Witt is definitely the type of defenceman the Leafs need in order to ensure a better defensive effort in their own end. If Leafs GM John Ferguson Jr has any sense of what the Leafs really need, he will make every effort to acquire him.

    The question is, what will the Caps want in return? I would trade Leafs defenceman Tomas Kaberle (weak defensive coverage and lacks a physical presence on the blueline) and a draft pick or a Leafs prospect (Kondratiev) for Witt. Certainly, you give up Kaberle’s passing skills, but Bryan McCabe and Ken Klee can certainly make up for this loss. In addtion, Leafs promising defenceman Carlo Collaiacovo should be brought up for a few NHL games to begin seasoning and preparing him for his future NHL career with the Leafs.

    Solid, gritty, defensive-minded defencemen may not attract as much media hype and fan attention as a stud defenceman, but in my opinion they’re worth their weight in gold.
