I'd prefer to stay away from the Staals, to be honest.

I lost track of baseball somewhere around the end of June.  Not gonna fall for that again.

Gus was never going to fit in Toronto.  LOL, remember Burke at a speech one morning, after the game the night before when Gus let in a stinker during OT, and Burke says to the folks at his conference, hey....you guys see that goal last night, pfffffft!!  

LOL...Burke cracked me up sometimes.

I'm hoping Kozun gets another chance to make the club when he returns.  I don't think it's a given that he will be a Leaf immediately.  Marlies for conditioning, I would think....and I hope he makes it back to the ACC.

I'm 5'7-5'8...but I have friends who are shorter.  I'll never play in the NHL, and I've accepted that...lol.

Hey...easy does it.  5'7"-5'8" isn't overly short.  It's not 6' or anything....but it's not dwarf-like either.

I still think Seguin is an over-rated douche bag (and it would not surprise me if his career was shorter than others of his stature).

Any of those 3 could easily win Cups with other teams down the line, though.  I could see Ovie traded at some point....and Malkin too.  And Hell, if Gretzky can be traded, so can Crosby.

Yeah, my sister lives in Ottawa and she texted me at lunch to tell me she was in lockdown (and ok).  Hard to imagine how that would feel (lockdown) having never experienced it.  My office used to be  located on Dixie Rd, at the end of one of the runways at Pearson, during 9/11.  That day I remember seeing planes circling in the air above the airport as everything came to a standstill.

Just in from work and catching up on what happened in Ottawa.  Although it is a sad day, we as Canadians will NEVER have our resolve broken.  Thoughts and prayers to the families affected by today's events.

I heard Lups interviewed just before the home opener and he said he was very surprised that the core (including himself) was kept intact over the summer.  He thought he was on his way out.

Hasek was a late bloomer, though....as I recall.  He only played 25 games as a Black Hawk (behind Belfour).  I don't think Chicago knew what they had there.

Common myth that Leaf fans would never stomach a full rebuild.  Simply not true, imo.

I reserve judgement on the Kessel trade.  So many things could have gone differently had that trade not been done.  Not worth debating, imo.

Good firm grip on him when I shook his hand.  He constantly talks to his dog, which I found cute and amusing.

I'd have JVR for Schenn up there.  Same for Gardiner/Lups for Beauch.  And, the Dion trade for spare parts.

Very interesting...thx for posting these.  I hated trading away Tiger Williams (never realized he scored 35 goals with Van the following season).  I understand Vaive was Vaive....but I boycotted The Leafs in the 80's.

We need a top 25 best Leaf trades (not sure there have been 25 in the modern era, though).

Meh!!  I'd be inclined to let him do what he wants.  I don't view him as selfish or anything...and I do think he's a special player.  I don't think he's a center, though.

Admittedly, I was a big Bolland supporter (and I honestly thought he would re-up here).  Hindsight being 20/20....I'm glad Florida offered more than we did.

Good article, Declan.  One has to wonder how much longer Holland gets here.  Personally, I'd play him with better line mates and hope he produces....soon.  Let's see what we have here before we toss him away based on 4th line minutes and players (nice reference to Colborne up there, btw).  He would surely be claimed if put on wavers...but decisions need to be made soon.  Stuck on the fence here, to be honest.

Quinn was a much better coach than GM, imo.  I'm all for Babcock, but I wouldn't be handing him GM duties as well.  Fuck that noise!!
