I'd be ok with another 5 years of sucking (give or take).  Imo, it's a myth that Leaf fans won't tolerate a proper rebuild.

I think tanking and blowing it up kinda go hand in hand....which is my preference.  I've been watching this act for a long, long time.  Last season leading into this season....no thanks, I've seen enough. Some folks say it's only been 7 or 8 games....it's been much more than that.  Blow up the core and tank for a high pick (this is the season it would make the most sense to do it).

It's all good, brother.  Waiting patiently for us to blow it up.

Leafs will never win the lottery.  Bettman would never allow it.  Even if we did win, Bettman would simply throw our ball in the garbage and select another one.

Hodgson has back issues, if I'm not mistaken.  Plus, he's a bit high maintenance, judging by his days in the Vancouver pipeline (not that much stock should be put in that, after all it was Gillis).  All I'm saying is, there is no way I would trade Gardiner for Hodgson.  Perhaps a lower tier player or prospect (Biggs and Finn perhaps).

Not for Gards, sorry.  I realize folks are on his case lately....but that will pass.  Gards is worth more than Hodgson, imo.

Gards for Hodgson is beyond a toke.....that's someone who's on crack.

Buffalo's 1st would be the only thing I'd be interested in from their side.  Not sure what it would cost though.  I'd do Gards plus our 1st for their 1st.

Not fooled by this performance.  This team needs to be blown up.

Nonis isn't the man for the job if we are to blow it up....at least not in my opinion.  First, I'd fire Nonis and get a GM in who can do the job.  Then gut the core.

No worries, but the decision should be made (soon) to blow it up.  Then develop a strategy as that will take time to unfold.  It's not about tinkering anymore, imo.  We're past that.

I don't mean making trades now, this minute, after 8 games......but I do mean that decision should be made to blow it the fuck up (to the core).  Once the decision is made, then develop a plan and initiate trade talks.  Pull the trigger closer to the trade deadline for top picks.....and again at the draft (again, go for top picks).  Nonis may need to be let go sooner than later because I'm not sure he's the man to get this done (not sure Dubas would be either....so Shanny better have a guy in mind).  Fire Carlyle near season's end and have the new GM pick his coach.  Draft, draft, and draft high.  Keep Bernier, Rielly, Nylander, Percy, and Leo.  Everyone else...open season.

It will be a long process....but the decision needs to be made to gut the core and do a proper rebuild...and do it right!!  None of this half assed tinkering retooling on the fly bullshit.  Blow it up and blow it up good!!

In reference to the line above about surviving without Phaneuf.....to me it's not a question of surviving with him or without him.  To me it's about blowing this thing up and not surviving without him.  I wanna suck this coming draft for all it's worth...and blow up the core of this team to kingdom come.  Trading Dion, Kessel, Kadri, Lupul, Gards, etc.....I don't want to survive.   I wanna start over (and this time do it right).

CBC guy (I have no idea who....I don't listen to CBC radio).  Was fired and is now suing the CBC.

Apparently the next season of GoT is taking a large departure from the books...much larger than previous departures.

Packaging Gards and Kadri together for anything less than a stud 1C on the better half of his career, would be selling low (imo).  Not saying you said this...I'm just sayin' Gardiner is a gem and not to be unappreciated.  My 2 cents.

Giving up and selling low on Gardiner would be a mistake.  Some folks (not saying you) seem to think Gards and Kadri for Staal.  I tell ya, if I was to package both Gards and Kadri together, I would want a helluva lot better than Staal.  Gards is gold on that deal, imo.  Someone mentioned the JVR contract as a comparable situation and I quite agree.

I wanted it.  People can shit on him all they want, I think he's well worth the deal he received (a bit of a steal, actually).

I'm not huge into analytics but I do think it will take time for it to play out.  Analytics won't have much of an effect this season, I don't think.  Over the course of the next few seasons, I would expect to see some improvement as a result.
