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.

Joe Thornton to SJO for spare parts.

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.

True, though I wasn't a big fan of Imlach 2.0 when he cleaned house and brought back Carl Brewer.

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

I've always hated getting rid of Jason Smith and Steve Sullivan.  Quinn was a good coach...but he had far too much power.

I remember that Mike Gartner trade.  As I recall, he was royally pissed because he said he had a verbal No Trade agreement with Fletcher.

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!!

If we are trading Kessel and Kadri to Florida....I would insist on their 1st coming back in the package.

Oh, I don't disagree here.  Just not sure I see there being a hope in hell of it happening.  No doubt there is interest in Babcock, but even with him behind the bench it doesn't fix all our problems.

Yeah, that's pretty much my thinking as well.  Still unsure if Babcock would come here though.  Sure, we can pay him....but he won't win a Cup here (and I think that's what he wants....along with money).

That'd be an impressive (yet expensive) 4th line.

With all the bottom six players we have in our system, I find it hard to believe we can't put together a 4th line that works.

I thought Randy was told to start using his 4th line more often.  Or, was that all bullshit from Nonis??

This Carlyle / Gards stuff is really getting old, imo.  Same shit at the beginning of each of the past 2-3 seasons....and by season's end he ends up being one of our top dmen.  Wish we could just move on from it, allow him to develop his skills on the ice instead of from the press box, and focus on other areas of the team that need attention.
