Former Leafs: Ex-Files / Re: RIP Sergei Berezin
June 26, 2024, 10:14:59 PM
Quote from: Rick Couchman on June 26, 2024, 07:22:41 PMNot many know this, but Sergei made a $1500 donation to TMLfans.ca back during his Leafs playing career.  He was a regular reader of our then blog and forum. I still have a copy of his cheque.

Ad revenue had just taken a deep dive and he got hold of us and helped keep the lights on.

Such sad news. 52 yrs old. He'll always be one of my favourite Leafs, for stepping up for us when we needed a boost.

RIP Sergei.

Thanks for sharing Rick, great story!
I remember Berezin for his smooth skating ability.
RIP Sergei, we lost you much too soon!

Quote from: TBLeafer on May 04, 2024, 11:12:17 PMHow long before Ovi got his CUP? Blowing it up and calling for blood too quickly has always been our downfall as fans. I'll stand by that, being guilty of it myself.

Core should stay. Coaching staff absolutely needs to change.

The problem with the core is that we can't afford to build a half decent blue line or goaltending tandem because they are sucking up all the $$$ and they can't be moved. It's a big problem

The team as it's currently constructed is fatally flawed and I've been saying it for a few years now. Too much $$$ tied up in the "core four" and not enough put into the blue line and between the pipes. The worst part about it is all the no-trade or no-movement clauses in the contracts. Hopefully they can convince either Tavares or Marner to move along because they need the money to upgrade the areas of the team they've been cheaping out on and with predictable results.

Cowan was totally someone you could have traded down for, nobody else would have taken him in the 1st round.
