Except Booth will be a better player than either Ashton or Frattin.  Why send the better player down at all?

the argument is Nash faced better (more) competition.

I'm not sure how many Americans play hockey but I'd bet dollars to donuts more play basketball.

It would end a lot of crap and it might make for a better regular season.

I'd like to see all non-playoff teams with an equal chance to draft first overall.  Going a bit further, the draft order for these 14 teams should be completely random.  It might be harsh but it would completely eliminate any incentive to lose games.  Management of every team would be focused on winning rather than strategically losing.

Drop what exactly?  That Kessel didnt' skate in the off-season?  That he's overweight?  That he looks out of sync on the ice?  I don't think you understood my comment.  I'm questioning Kessel's integrity.  I'm NOT suggesting Leiweke was but you can draw your own conclusions.

I think being over-weight speaks for itself sans Leiweke.

Add on the fact that the coach publicly questioned Kessel and little buddy Bozak`s conditioning.... Phil is clearly carrying 10+ extra pounds.... it does not reflect well on their character (I`m channeling my inner Leiweke)

I have issues with the top line - they`ve been crap so far.  They can`t maintain an o-zone cycle and the PP has sucked.  They don`t seem capable of playing against other team`s top lines and are occasionally hemmed in by opposing team`s fourth lines.

I think you're onto something; the Leafs are a work-in-progress.  They are trying to play the game right but some of the personnel would prefer to play the rush-game.

Kessel lost the foot race and hence body position.  Phaneuf should have recognized that.

We need a new word to define players that are strong, fast and skilled who play a possession game. Detroit has a bunch from what I saw on the weekend.   Leafs need more players combining these traits.

The Leafs were so bad in 2009.  Luke Schenn was our best asset and we couldn't trade any of our players for more than a 2nd or 3rd round pick.

Yes, mistakes have been made but given where the Leafs were, there was little room for error.

When the Leafs are playing the game, the shots 5v5 have improved (Colorado game, first 30 minutes last night).  When they give up or when they have a large lead (Rangers, Pitts), not so much.

Has Dion been that bad?  There were a number of missed assignments that led to goals last night.  That last goal he could have used a little help from his teammates.  instead there was an unchecked Detroit forward who tipped it in.
