@Why Bother @Burtonboy Well to be honest, the players are professionals playing a game, being paid lots of money and competing for the Cup. What's more to motivate?

@mcloki Yeah I agree with Yaknowwhat and Tim Horton. One year. In a cap system. Assuming deals weren't possible without giving up the farm which all of you would have screamed about.
@philthethrill @Giller Can't give that to Bolland, cap ya know. Trotz however $$$$$$$.
@Jay31 That guy has taken too many blows to the head.

@Why Bother @Burtonboy Yeah TL told Nonis to go get Bernier but I think the trade was a good one. In retrospect maybe Reimer should have gone instead of Scrivens but remember Bernier hadn't had a full season, in fact he hadn't played all that much under Quick. Clarkson was the prized UFA that the Leafs managed to get. The cap hit is a little high and the first bad season, well, practically everybody was bad. I'm prepared for a mulligan on that. The cap is going up as well, albeit not as high as everyone thought. Kessel is being paid the going rate for goal scorers.
The deal I most dislike is Phaneuf's. Too large of a cap hit and too long. I've never been a fan of Phaneuf though I don't despise him. He has some good attributes but not for the deal he signed, he's not captain material (not that I'm a big captain proponent) and shouldn't be playing the minutes he does. On any Cup capable team he would not be in the first pairing of defencemen
Bolland I wouldn't mind back at a reasonable rate. Kuli needs to drop his $$$ or be shipped out. He is way overpaid. That 30 goal season was a mirage and not likely to happen again unless paired with the likes of Malkin.
As for Shanahan and Nonis, I've been in that situation twice. As long as the new boss and the now underling are on the same page it can work. If not, changes happen. For me both times the boss got turfed which is unusual.
@B_Leaf I would find it hard to jump ship. The new team would likely be team B for me.
@MaxwellHowe @lister He sucks at that too.
Alright now I'm outta here!

@MaxwellHowe @lister I'm in IT. I'm not sure what Randy does.
@MaxwellHowe @listerHA! No...
@ingy56 @lister It can only help. Haven't had much luck lately.
Alright I'm out of here. I have cover letters to write and resumes to send out.
Will catch up when the various interview videos hit the web.
@MaxwellHowe @NotTheCanucksnaphook@Keeon Not when they see it's about the Leafs.
@NotTheCanucksnaphook @Keeon I still like the cement truck blowup on Mythbusters years ago. There was nothing left of the truck.
@Tim Horton @lister@Loric76@Mcost61@Alec Brownscombe :-p Geek kind sir!
@Bruffins They'd have even more if the Leafs had the puck more.
@Loric76 @lister@Mcost61@Alec Brownscombe I'd make a Red Dwarf joke here but I doubt many would get it.
@ingy56 @Belfour20/JB-45@Jmessih More like he was wondering why nobody called him to get his okay...
@Mcost61 @Alec Brownscombe The fax machine is mine!!!
@Jmessih @ingy56@Loric76 And the Raptors are in! Coincidence? Not that I give a fuck about basketball...
@ingy56 Shanny is the shiny new toy. What did you expect?
@dontcallmeshirley @NotTheCanucksnaphook Yeah other than play-by-play guys, I have no problem with bias (either for or against) as long as it's admitted.
@Mcost61 @LeafsGuru So let's see, Trotz & Weber and now Toews. I'd say that's a good start.
@bob sacamano @Mcost61 Words are meaningless. Actions!
@Mcost61 @bob sacamano When hasn't Nonis chosen his words carefully? That's what he's like.
@ConnorCrisp @ingy56 Was digging around for a joke. Beat me to it.
@Loric76 Wait for it...
@ingy56 @Keeon I wouldn't want any windows after this season.
@Mcost61 Should be a how to video of what not to do during a lead...
@maple1967leafs That's why I had to stop...

@Mcost61 @lister Yup.
@Mcost61 Politically correct answer. What else is he going to say?
@maple1967leafs There we go! Coaching question.
@maple1967leafs @lister Hey! I resemble that remark! :-p
@maple1967leafs Wait for it...
@maple1967leafs @lister I'm going to have too. Geez.
@daniel marois @lister He's been there since I was a kid 30 years ago.
@daniel marois Take notes Lance Brown.
The booze is going away... I'm going to pass out soon.
@ConnorCrisp @mcloki Stuff him in a hackey bag and bring him over on the plane ride to Toronto.
Dumb reporter questions... *sigh*
@mcloki @lister I stocked up ahead of time.
@NotTheCanucksnaphook @ingy56 It's hockey, everything ends with y.
One more humble...
@Jmessih Trotz it is!
@Loric76 @Jmessih Tronno.
Culture again. *DRINK*
I'm going to be smashed soon.
