"It’s not that I’m calling this an anti-Leaf conspiracy agenda on the part of the League..."
We know you aren't, Alec. You're too classy to suggest something like that. I, on the other hand, am suggesting it. Certainly seems a lot of calls or non-calls have gone against the Leafs this season. Kadri gets a head shot in Boston, has to leave the bench to get checked out, no one even blinks. He gets interviewed after the game about the hit and says all the right things. Next game Kadri throws, what looks like to me, a clean body check and two minutes isn't enough to make an example out of him. The look of disgust on his face when he was told by the refs he was out of the game says it all.

After 11 games, I'm not so confident in this teams chances.

Saying the Leafs were simply outclassed by the Blackhawks last night would be giving them too much credit for how they played. These guys have another level that they haven't shown yet this season. Let's hope they bring it soon.

How was this guy not signed before Gunnarsson and Fraser?

@Yaknowwhat Further to your point about the quote from Nonis, I believe he made that comment when asked about a Kessel extension, not Kadri's ongoing contract negotiations. Although I could be wrong...

In '93 I saw the Maple Leafs at Pearson Airport in the customs line on a return flight from Florida. I must have been 9 or 10 years old at the time. My mother and aunt told me it was the Maple Leafs and I should go say 'hi'. I walked up to Pat Burns and tugged on his sleeve and asked "Are you guys the Maple Leafs?" I was already a shy kid to begin with so I was probably sweating bullets. Burnsy never even looked down to acknowledge me, and I turned around and walked away. Growing up after that, I always thought Burns was a dick, but later realized that they were probably on their way home from a tough road trip.

Do these Leafs look better than the old Leafs?
I'm not one to be overly optimistic about any Toronto sports team but jeez, the backlash this offseason is incredible. What am I not seeing that everyone else sees about MacArthur? Why was Clarkson the most sought after free agent and MacArthur an after thought? Yes, I would have preferred if the Leafs kept Grabovski over Bozak but as long as Grabbo was put into a third line defensive role and not relied on for offense, I'd rather have a guy who makes less and cherishes that role. Fuck the stats, this isn't baseball its hockey. So many intangibles in a sport that's constantly moving with split second decisions.
Canada - Dave Keon, USA - Phil Kessel, Russia - Alex Mogilny, Czech - Tomas Kaberle, Slovakia - Peter Ihnačák, Sweden - Mats Sundin, Finland - Niklas Hagman

@Komas Taberle @Cartsy True, but you could always see what the market does and then buy him out next season if something better comes along
