It has a lot to do with impatience. Thus the continuing of preaching of culture change. We have to stop eating our young and talk of team building. The average fan is happy just to make the playoffs. I say fack that!!!!

True. JFJ did have an eye for talent. 2006 had the most players/nhl games.

Wish we still had Steen and Coliacovo.

Neither have had playoff success. But Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Montreal, Washington have.

Got it right here. "A Leafs quick fix not very prudent. Shanahan will not likely be as impetuous as Burke. Kessel and Phaneuf are exhibit a and b in the leafs' flawed philosophy that building contending teams can be rushed. The reality is players such as Kessel and Phaneuf should be used to supplement a strong foundation that already exist, not create one that doesn't.
So it's time the leafs settle in as a middling team for the next 4 to 5 years and patiently building a core by doing things the right way.
There are no short cuts.

Let's me try to find it. I have the print version

Anyone read the latest issue of the Hockey News? The last page is about the Leafs. It's a good article by Ken Campbell. He is never pro leafs in what I have read in the past few years (for good reason). But I think he nailed it right on the head. It's worth the read if you haven't read it.

I really wish we could stop trading to build a team. It doesn't work.

Hmm, it would be cool if you could trade a compliance buyout.

Ah different coach. I get what you're saying.

Clarkson will score 20 goals this year.

I agree. High time we learned to develop and progress.

That might scare him away.

As he should. His dad was with the Nordiques wasn't he?

I was looking at some mock drafts yesterday and Ashton was listed higher then Kadri on some lists. I really hope he gets a shot. We have Kadri, Ashton and Holland from the first round of 2009 draft.

Apparently nothing's better. ;)
Some pretty catty comments though.

It's the Ducks. See it now. Peter Holland.
I'm confused. Who has our 2nd round pick this year?
Ya. It was the Montreal game so that probably explains it.

I also think Kessel and JVR were burnt out and disappointed. Had they got a metal things might have been different.

Just watching a game from earlier on in the season and did the leafs ever look good. Puck possession was good. Shots good. wtf happened?
Good point. Biggs vs Johnson case in point.
Why is Goldobin listed so low? Russian factor? Next Yakupov?
Early on he was not even listed in the teens.
Agreed but really want to temper expectations with this kid. No question he is developing well.
Starting to think Willy goes higher then 6.
Not likely but could happen. I would trade up to ensure.
Me too. Right to Franson to move up 3 spots. Is it enough?
Still want to trade up for Nylander. He would look good with Johnson in a few years.
Mysteries do happen. Could find out this is a top heavy draft. I really want Nylander.
@NotTheCanucksnaphook @Gilbey93@FrycersGhost@Jmessih I don't know, I'm thinking Ottawa might have wished they listened before they picked Daigle.

@Gilbey93 @FrycersGhost@Jmessih Was his interview bad?
@Gilbey93 @FrycersGhost@Jmessih Kessel anyone ? JK
@Jmessih @Gilbey93@FrycersGhost If he drops it's because someone went way off the board. Could be good or bad.
@Jmessih @FrycersGhost Jake?
Thank goodness for edit ;)

I didn't know William Nylander was born in Calgary. I guess I should have. I hope now he falls to us or we trade up to get him.
Nylander, Johnson could be a heck of a duo.
@deedrag @Murph2417@vinoa I thought it was a case of auto correct being his worst enema.

@Mind Bomb @FrycersGhost@phaneufoundlander@Keeon@clark sittler I knew that would be posted. I'm not saying to tank just that what we have been doing and the way we have hasn't worked either save for short spurts of the year. We need a farm system that can consistently support the parent club. We are getting there slowly. But higher picks would help that along. Move us from the bottom 20's to the upper part of the league.

@Mind Bomb @phaneufoundlander@Keeon@clark sittler Let's stick to mediocre for another 25 years. What can it hurt.

@Greg Fenton @FrycersGhost@Komas Taberle@MaxwellHowe@deedrag All semantics and speculation at any rate.
@Greg Fenton @FrycersGhost@Komas Taberle@MaxwellHowe@deedrag Considering the proximity to Hollywood it might be better.
@Greg Fenton @Komas Taberle@MaxwellHowe@deedrag Elisha is from Calgary. So probably she would move there.
I wonder if Kevin O'Leary is a Leaf fan? Bring in Mark Cuban as an investor.
1 week ago on Morning Mashup: Drafting in the 8 spot
After this winter do you blame him? I bet he misses LA.
That's what I think too. Do we perennially want to be 8th?
I tend to agree. Since this draft is sketchy, Might as well go with NA character player with talent.
Hey I'm a small Canadian but I'm huge when I stand on my wallet.
