Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: so is Burke finished..

well it seems Burke may well be done untill camp. i think we look very good for the start of the season, and if there is a big deal out there i dont see it.


You're so focused on the potential regression from a couple guys that you're seemingly refusing to even acknowledge the potential improvement from a number of others.

Well, you're just restating our basic disagreement.  You are confident that all these new guys could make up a shortfall, and I'm not.  Especially not in the case of Connolly.

And of course some people might improve -- there is that potential.  But earlier in your post you said ..."the fact that there will be a couple guys who will inevitably improve....'  That's neither a fact nor inevitable, and even if a couple of guys improve, if those guys are Brown and Boyce, the improvement very likely won't make any difference.

Wait, it's a fact that there will be a regression? ;)

I don't know if you're taking the entire team into account with regards to balancing a possible shortfall from one line, it's more than just Lupul and Connolly.

Wow ... why are they all talking regression, i think our lines will score more. grabbos line will improve and i see big things from kessels line, and as for the third it will also be a threat.goaltending is set.  its our pp and pk as well as our shootout that will be the big factors this season. if they are improved by 30% we are in the post season, and if they are improved by a lot more we will be a threat to any team.

I only wish that it hadn't taken Burke so long to get to the true rebuilding position he is in now (patience isn't my strong suit).  I do like the direction we are headed in and I'm glad Burke didn't get sucked into the July 1st frenzy that I think some teams may end up regretting in the long run.

I still however think that Wilson is not the man to get the best out of the players Burke has provided him with (I miss the fire Ron Wilson thread!)

i would give him the chance with this group and if he is sucking at the half mark we replace him. i like this team and think if the pp and pk improve were a team on the rapid climb.

good to have him back.

sorry all, am not a fan of dissing my team when they have been playing well. so i will stand up for them, sometimes to quick.

i hope he does bring it, i like him. them knocks to the bean do slow you down though, i have been there and i can confirm that to be true..

lololol. crap i missed that, lol. am awake now though.  its all them late shifts.

Good to see the usual group have the leafs as a crap shoot to make the playoffs.
-flyers will drop, too many changes.not a top five team anymore.
-wash, i feel there on there way down.
- pitt, depends on Crosby. but i see them in the 5-8 slot.
-tampa, they should be there in the mix for a top five spot.
-Boston top five
-habs will fight for a spot.
-leafs 5-8, but if Reimer is for real, we may be top five.
- NyR., i dont like there d, so i say 8-5 area.
buf and NJ. they go where there Goalies take them.

i see a very strong east. but unlike some of you guys and gals, i see the leafs right in the mix. i see them in the top 8 more then out all season.

i'll sit hear for a min.

i wonder will orr play, and if so will he still have the drive to fight. also will we take another step up this season.

Why bring this back. the leafs were following the coach and winning. so how can you call for his head, you must not be a real leaf fan. or you are just one of them people that will never be happy no matter what management does.

I think we go into the season with the coach we have and hope he keeps the guys playing like he did once he got some real players.

I have an optimistic sense of anticipation for the coming hockey season...even though the rational side of my brain tells me I'm probably doomed to disappointment.

i think we should all have a good feeling this up comming season. this team has taken a big step, and i think will take yet another this season.

I think Philly has the goaltending and forwards to make them a top 4 team in the East. Even with Pronger, I'm not crazy about their "D" but still, it shouldn't stop them from being a top Eastern team.

All the moves will set them back just enough that they will be fighting for there lives with all the other teams looking to grab the 7 and 8 spots.

i think just like the Phaneuf deal we wont see it comming, when he brings in a big time center.
But you just said you do see it coming...  :P

Yes i do think he is looking, but again if and when he does make a deal we won't see it comming ( meaning  the players involved).

i'm betting we don't boo him. i think if were doing as good as i think we wont need to boo anyone.
