@Cameron19 @Savo43 Cam, you've said previously that it's surprising how little star players like Nash sometimes get traded for... is it possible this could happen with Kessel, that we overestimate what we can get for him?

@ingy56 @Armchair GM You never know... many fired coaches have taken a demotion to get back coaching... and they've worked together before with Shanny... the number of openings this year works against it though...

@DeclanK @Armchair GM One of Burke's biggest mistakes in my opinion... and to lose him to the dreaded Habs... he may not want to be a GM though... he may like a more limited role... he's a rather intense bastard...

I'd like to see McLellan and Babcock reunited with the Leafs... with Babcock taking on an additional title and responsibilities to that of coaching, it would be less of a demotion for McLellan...  make it happen Shanny!

I asked Pierre McGuire on Ottawa radio today if Shanahan would be limited in his search for a GM becasue of his management role and team management approach.  I aslo asked him if Shanahan was really looking for an assistant GM.  McGuire said he wasn't sure about Shanahan's commitment to Toronto because he still lives in NY and commutes to Toronto.  With regards to the job he described it as a dream job in hockey, one of the great hockey jobs. 

I think this has been discussed here before, but if Shanahan is looking for more commitment and dedication from his players, should he be living in Toronto?  I recognize NY is a short commute...

Are Bozak's defensive numbers skewed negatively because he plays with Kessel and has to over-compensate for his buddy's defensive liabilities?

Went to the Marlies game in Ottawa last weekend... Bit of a stinker... No one stood out; maybe Loov and Brown with a goal... What got my attention was the Binghampton Sens pre-game video... It featured Sens players pummeling opposition players in fights... It seemed like a bad choice of images given what we know about concussions and the large number of kids in the crowd... O

Happy Hockey Day in Canada everyone... Coincidentally, I bought a good hockey book last night titled "Canada on Ice." It's a bunch of Maclean's magazine articles going back to the 1950s with articles on Hull, Howe, Richard and some later ones on Sanderson, Ballard...
