@PepTalk @Mitch92 There are a lot of bitter ex-Leafs out there!  Some never come back.  Too bad because there really aren't lengthy careers anywhere in the organization.

@PepTalk I can't blame Wilson at all for his ill will toward the Leafs organisation.  He probably feels like he has been wronged by the team both as a player and as a coach.

I actually think Kilhorn tipped it after Brewer.  I want to see the replay again.  Thought it hit his shaft after Brewer's blade.

So McDavid had a five point effort tonight in 10-5 win over the Barrie Colts.  I think he will catch Marner for the OHL scoring title.

I have said it before and I will probably say it again.  Leaf management needs to do more to insulate the players from the media hordes.  My solution is to limit the number of media members that get player access after games.  Have a media raffle or some other method that is based on fairness to determine who gets in each game.  Other team's players don't have to face that everyday.  The league should implement some restrictions in order to protect its on-ice product.


Having said that, I am not defending Dion Phaneuf.  If Phaneuf wants to win over the Leaf fans he should hand in the "C" and ask to renegotiate his contract to a number that he is capable of playing to.  The Leafs miscast Phaneuf as captain and as a number one defender.  It made sense at the time but clearly that time is long passed!  The Leafs will not win anything until Phaneuf is pushed down the depth chart.  Arguably, Rielly is passing him now. With Franson out of the mix we really have no other defenders who look to be capable of playing top line minutes.  Phaneuf and Polak would make a solid second pairing to play tough minutes against top lines and kill penalties.  We need one or two top defenders and a 1C.  The rest can be added on the cheap.

@Jay31 @.Kong. I was hoping for a Phaneuf trade but I am glad he didn't go to Detroit.  I would hate to see him win ANYTHING with the Wings.

@wendelsfist @.Kong. Same sentiments.  I think we were lead to believe that more important pieces might be moved today.  We achieved a good set-up for the draft having acquired numerous picks including another 1st.

Was just watching the Preds Rangers game.  Preds Weber tried a dangerous pass to Franson on the point during a PP, got picked off by Nash for a breakaway and they both give chase, badly I might add.  What do you know?  Pekke Rinne bails them out!  Great save!

@TuckerForPunishment After failing to unload Phaneuf or any of the other majors today Nonis should be fired!  Time for the next GM to start calling the shots There are still major decisions to be actioned on this core.  Another way to look at it is that Nonis has only dealt with one of the major problems and it cost the Leafs 32 million dollars!  See ya!

@peterbleafs Brewer was highly touted and even won gold with Canada in 2002!  If he can still play at all he should be in the line-up until the end of the season rather than harming the development of Loov or another prospect.
