« on: March 23, 2015, 10:16:51 PM »
this is a very sad state of affairs for this team . thye are as good on paper as any team in the east . I think we need to get babcock and get mark hunter in as GM.get what we can for kessel and phanuf .its just not gonna work here they have lost the fans of the leafs.if anyone reads this that gets to shanahan I read somewhere imlach screwd a guy out of his bonus the last cup and he hexed them to never win until he gets his money . Christ all mitey pay him out of petty cash . out of pizza money or tims money for these guys .set it right maybe the draft will fall our way .this has to turn around now . to me its the gm just not the right guy and coach to . but the scouting drafting have been hideous sine wendel . my mother could have picked him . name me a real hockey player they have found . over the years .not one star ,a few so so did they miss some of these picks I always read about .heads would roll I can tell u that if I was there in charge.we are cursed this has to change pay him think it was Hillman or baun not sure . someone out there knows . pay the guy like 15 undred or 2500.00 cant rember does anyone know about this curse . tell whoever u can pay the guy

Leafs Media Rumours / jeff carter

BB... i think its imperative you aquire jeff carter this time, we have missed him what twice now thnx to sundin and kaberle not takeing one for the team,you need to work your magic and get him without takeing to big a hit to the depth of this team or farm system. but it would give us a great 1&2 line and with graaber slotted in third line and power play work.

From LeBrun

Leafs' trade talk

The Leafs' newfound depth, especially on defense, has the club working the phones to see if there's any interest in some of their players. Defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and center Tyler Bozak are among the names that have been discussed, but as of Wednesday, we're told nothing was close with any team. The Leafs could also start the season with eight defensemen on their roster.

I know Burke has to do his best to get numbers down, but I don't really like the Bozak talk. Now maybe Bozak would fetch something of value, but, he could also turn out to be a long lasting quality player for us as well. Personally, I would rather we wait an see what we have in him. It all depends on what is offered of course, but with his solid rookie numbers, he could turn out to be one of those players that leaves here and blossoms somewhere else and I wouldn't like that. This could be the Turris/ Bozak rumour they're talking about, but I thought I would mention it, because it's coming straight from LeBrun.

Gunnarsson on the other hand may be the guy that the organization deems expendable, with the contract of Komisarek not being movable at this point and the emergence of young Gardiner. I think I'm okay with that, but obviously, my first choice to leave would be Komisarek. We could get a good pick for Carl I think, but maybe Burke is looking to package in order to land a bigger fish, we'll have to wait and see.

BB...YOU NEED TO GET JEFF CARTER  ..... whatever it takes ,im reading he has asked for a trade out of columbus. we have missed him a cpl times thnx to sundin and kaberle not leaving at the time.i think its imperative you aquire him this time !!!!

from Darren Dreger of TSN,

    Aside from the few decisions remaining, Toronto is keenly interested in adding another top forward.

    The Leafs lack experience up front and are in the market for a player with some size and a track record of making an impact.

    The Leafs are willing to sacrifice two younger guys to make this deal happen, but see nothing imminent and predict such a player won’t spring free until at least November when teams have had a chance to assess their talent, or have stumbled out of the gate.

If I had to bet, I'd say Gunnarson and Kadri + a pick are being shopped as a package.

Has BB done enough to turn this around here yet. he has stockpiled the cubbards with high end talent or at least on paper he has.aquired some extra draft picks although not sure if they are very high end yet. once shenn is signed they will be pretty close to the limit , he will have to shed some money to improve if they come out of the gate flat. i really think he missed the boat on carter or richards ,he should have gone all out for one of them somehow but instead signed a pretty weak imatation of a front line centre ,with an injury prone connelly. both sundin and kaberle screwed us out of carter and some high picks and what not by not dropping the ntc , this team doesnt look much stronger now then at the end of last season.

welcome matty. hope u recover enough to reume your carrer but your health is most important, get better and help us step up this year good luck

A Coyotes blogger just posted this over at Hockeybuzz.  Since it wasn't Schleplund I figured it was worth posting, even if just to give people something to debate  8)

How would you feel about trading Kadri for a young center like Turris??  He might do very well given a big increase in minutes over what he got in Phoenix.  Link:

Oops, already in the GM thread.  Sorry, please remove while I go stand in the corner.   :-X
dont think BB will trade him yet ,he will give him a cpl seasons to make it ,if the kid has the big town nerves in check he certainly has promise. im hopeing colborne is a hugfe diamond in the ruff,if he turns out along with some of the other young ones he brought in things could be good in the smoke

he def.missed the boat on carter or richards from think we were so close to carter a cpl times last cpl of years,thnx sundin and kaberle.if he was the great wheeler dealer he thinks he is he should have been able to get one of the above or both.look what he gave up for kessel?? he may have outscored the draft picks now but wait till all their careers are over then count them up and see.
