@RememberSalming @Armchair GM I didn't think Ballard hated him... he hated Inge Hammastrom the so-called chicken Swede... I've never heard the Salming angle...

I don't think I've ever heard as many cliches used as in Horachek's pre-game press comments yesterday... I was waiting for "we need to plan our work, and work our plan..."  That aside I feel for the guy...

@Cameron19 @Armchair GM @Mitch92 @Leaf20000 Despite their recent success, the Habs have had similar problems... Fans booing, running a series of captains and Chelios out of town... It's not unique to Toronto, maybe more a function of the size of the market and being a hockey city...

Of all the stupid recent mistakes with our beloved Leafs, keeping Poulin and Loiselle over Rick Dudley is one of the worst... We lost him and the dreaded Habs got stronger... Maybe no Clarkson if Dudley was still around...

@Xxxxxnew Yes, I recall those stories... Net Worth may be one of the best hockey books written... Shore used to call in the players' wives and tell them to withhold sex from their husbands... He gave the players one opportunity a year to tell him what they thought of him... He used to get his kicks getting verbally abused and sworn at...

@Xxxxxnew I recall reading about Brophy and how he was going to make a Leaf fight his brother who played for an opposing team in an upcoming game... I forget the player; I doubt it was Courtnall... When a few Leafs told Brophy he couldn't do that, he got mad and said the Leaf player would have to have oral sex with his brother at center ice if he told him to...

I think Nonis will be gone the moment the Leafs are beyond hope of making the playoffs... this will provide a head start on next year.. don't know enough about Hunter to say he's the replacement...

@dlb, just dlb @Armchair GM Funny how some people suggest to dump them for picks at the deadline... they're valuable because they allow the Marlies to develop and avoid rushing them up...

If and when some key pieces are traded, you need players and prospects/picks back.  You can't just "bring up the Marlies" as many are not ready and their development will be ruined.
