Bozak is 46th in scoring among NHL centres, but actually much better on a PPG basis ... almost 1 per. Hardly top-10, but he is OUR #1 centre. Good on him. He works well with Kessel, and so long as the line keeps producing, leave it ... and him ... alone.

I'd prefer D'Amigo over Bodie at this point.

I agree ... nothing ventured , nothing gained. He's not what they need long-term (and is likely to sign in Minnie this summer anyway) but could have been useful 'til the end of this season.
Heard that, but not who might have been going to the Island. Sticking point apparently was Leafs needed NYI to take back salary due to CAP imitations. Snow apparently said No!"
Noted .. but who cares? Not too many on this site, I suspect. What other teams do, or how they play, is largely irrelevant except as to how it affects the standings. How their fans react is TOTALLY irrelevant. Many of them wouldn't know good hockey from tiddly-winks.
People here know what good hockey is, know that the team is capable of playing it, and get pissed when they don't. It's a perfectly reasonably response to (a) poor performance.

Whatever happened to leaving the guys who score goals on the PP, and letting those who check work the PK? It spreads the icetime around a little more favourably ... and is generally more effective.

Me, too ... he's an offensive dynamo! ;-)
I think he's referring to the 1st Snow sent to Buffalo in the "original" Vanek deal.
If watching this team made me drink beer, I'd have drowned in it long ago.
Love the optimism.
The Leafs are not winning the Cup this year anyway, so they might as well let their "kids" gain some experience down the stretch and (hopefully) in the playoffs.
I suspect Nonis will be quite active at and around the draft when he must make decisions on all the UFAs.

The penalty was set. If it was to be rescinded, the Devils should have appealed the ruling to an independent arbitrator. That's the ONLY way it should have been overturned.

The Leafs should be asking for the 4th round pick they lost in the Frogren schmozzel ... and maybe some of the money they were fined then, too.
Someone forgot to put the cookie jar on top of the net!

So we agree ...there's still lots of work to be done.
Not dumping on the guy. The goaltending has been more than adequate. Can't be faulted for very many of the losses this season. Just don't think we're talking Vezina Trophy ... and certainly not the Jennings!
Must be a "low ceiling" wherever Weekes is today. Bernier was GREAT to start the season, but has been barely more than average of late.

Lupul isn't going anywhere. If Bolland wants more than his "due", trade him. I pray to God I don't see "Leo" in a Leafs uniform ever again!
@ Cameron19 - Never going to happen. I HATE the guy!
Funny, eh? "JFJ II" was building the Bruins, and RW wanted them to play like the Blackhawks.
