@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.

@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.
