Great read. Thanks Anthony.


I feel that Dion has played better than anyone on the team during this slide and it's a shame that most of this gets tossed on him as he's the captain. If I ran another team I would definitely want to have Dion on my team. IMHO I think Dion can hold his head high and I hope he either gets a decent cast around him for next season or he finds a team that deserves him.

Most of you guys probably already knew but I just learned about the passing of Matthew Wuest, Founder of Capgeek. He gave us many wonderful hours of enjoyment and although I never knew him he touched my life. RIP Matthew.

Worst sour grapes ever. This guy has sealed his fate to never coach in the NHL again. Who in their right mind would hire him after listening to his rants. No professionalism at all.

Thanks AP. As always my favorite read.


When I heard the news of Clarkson being traded I felt like I was walking on a cloud. It was a gift from the Gods and the best thing that happened in the last days before the trade deadline.


I'm so sick of the Toronto media and I feel for Kessel. Sure these players need to be able to take criticism but it's gone so far beyond that. There are so few guys in the media that I even listen to anymore. I would say Friedman and MacKenzie and that's about it.


I was disappointed that more was not done by the deadline but looking back I appreciate the patience and waiting for the right deal. The only miss is not getting anything for Booth. Not even a 7th. Oh well. Looking forward to the draft and hopefully few to no Leaf wins for the rest of this season.

I'm 100% behind Kessel. I'm so sick of the Toronto media. I truly believe that the mind fucking that the media do to the Leafs takes a toll that most other teams in the league do not experience to the same level and has some effect on performance. I'm not saying it effects them to the level where they would be a playoff team but there is some level of effect.


You could take Lupul, Phaneuf, or Bozak and put them on another team and just the lack of media head games would be an impact on their game.

Now that we've hit the trade deadline, when can teams resume trading? I'm guessing some number of days after the Stanley Cup is won?

I expected us to do more.


We need some open spots to give our young guys some NHL time and a better chance at a higher pick.


Are we done or still more updates coming?

I'm shocked at what Hextall was able to get for Coburn. I have been impressed with how Yzerman has managed that club until this trade. Way too one sided.

I'm starting to think that Franson on his own may have pulled in a 1st pick now that the deadline is only a couple days away and seeing what Sekera netted.

So Carolina gets a 4th and prospect from Washington for Gleason and we're still paying Gleason for a few more years along with a cap hit. Sad to see.

JVR is not a two way player. Our worst defensive forward at that. If you could get that haul you'd have to consider it
