@Radar O'Rielly It the most devastating feeling a human being could ever experience and one would not wish it on one's worst enemies. I hope the Stajan and his wife finds peace.

This is the first trade deadline where I have tuned out the chatter. When it is all said and done, we will see what was done. Judging by our previous trade deadline, what are the odds to miss anything.

@Mcost61 @Faalcon And some more Hopefully.
@dlb eh @Faalcon yes but there is day in between. Let's enjoy this win for now.
This is not the time for dissection. This is the time for celebration. Great game and even greater result for Canada. Let win the Gold medal game and then revert to our default Go Leafs Go. By the way as good family members, we will not ask any questions from James or Phil as to why they did not produce against Canada. We will tell them they played great and should continue to play great for us.
@Komas Taberle @FaalconIf we win, I don't mind.

I am so glade Kessel and JVR have played so well against other teams. However, I hope that they both fail against us. For team Canada to win against the US, one of our players has to be tasked to physically eliminate Kessel. Kane, can be neutralized by a fast defensive player. JVR, however, is a more daunting proposition. I am cautiously optimistic that we will win against the US.
@The Truth Hurts HH someone has a contract to terrorize you with the thought of Stajan coming back to the leafs.

I am not impressed with Poulin. In fact, I think he is quite useless. I have never heard anything original from him and that is why I don't pay much attention to whatever he says. The only thing that I do remember is that he talked Lebda up when we signed that good for nothing player. I suspect his signing was at the behest of Poulin.

@-Keon-Did it involve Big Buff coming to us from Jets ?
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Game Recap: Game #50, Leafs 5 vs. Habs 3
This was the trade that sent Byfuglien to Atlanta. TSN" in Byfuglien,
one of the breakout players for the Stanley Cup-winning Chicago
Blackhawks this spring, has been traded to the Atlanta Thrashers as part
of a nine-player deal.
Byfuglien, along with D Brent Sopel, F Ben Eager and F Akim Aliu,
are heading to Atlanta in exchange for the Thrashers' first round pick
(24th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, the 54th pick, and forwards Marty Reasoner, Jeremy Morin, and Joey Crabb."
If Nonis can pull something out of his hat and land Byfuglien now when he is availble,it will make the Leafs very hard to play against. He can handle Lucic and I would say even Chara. If we can match up against Bruins, the other teams would not be much of a headache. I sincerely hope some how Nonis pulls this off knowing our cap situation, . Big Buff will add the intangible that we have been talking about for a long time without having it.

@Yaknowwhat I am not sure TO has the stomach for that medicine. If you recall after reaching TO Burke signed a goalie because in his opinion those who matter in Toronto did not want to endure losing games in Toronto. We could have got the first overall that year. Clearly, winning long term was less important than winning short term or we don't know what pressure he faced than.

I have always maintained that the management is responsible for the success of lack thereof of a team. It is the manger who assembles the team ( knowing that every Manager inherits a roaster) and the coach. A manager has the power to make trades and the power to fire and hire coaches.
Pat Quin made horrible trades, JFJ although a good scout was a brutal trader. Keith Fletcher had passed his expiry date. The impatience of Buke and his commitment to Wilson came at high cost to us.
The onus is clearly now on NONO. He has the power to do things and he should be the one doing it. If doesn't do anything it is on him.

@B_Leaf Now I see the wisdom of your paper bag.

This team is out of sink and God knows why
The Gleason trade seems very good for us. If he plays half decent, he will put a lot of pressure on our D men not named Dion and that will be a good thing as competition to earn ice time generally brings out better play. If he does work out, we will have a D that will become more difficult to push of the puck.
