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.

@Whalz Where is this place you speak of?
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'mDefinitelyBirdman79 Leafs fans want them to lose

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?
4 weeks ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
@Hammertownleaffan Yes, something to shoot for
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Maple Leafs trade Olli Jokinen to St. Louis for Joakim Lindstrom & conditional sixth round pick
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 sure hope we moved Booth for something, anything.
@philthethrill He still can't get over the Clarkson trade.

@Burtonboy I think Anaheim is the perfect place for Phanuef. They have cap space and he'd be of great value to them.
@.Kong. @Fish Head Coburn for Gudas and a 3rd should have done it.
@Dangle_My_Berries Happy B-Day Bro!
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.
@docmma @Fish Head I like McCann's game

Sault Ste Marie and London playing an OHL game this afternoon. I wonder if Dubas and Hunter have a bet on this game?
@Dougie Wraparound 26th. We need help for our future.
1 month ago on Game 62 Scoring Chances: Canadiens 4 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@Radar O'Rielly No less than a 1st plus a prospect and late pick
@TheColborneUltimatum @Fish Head @Beleaf67 The closest I can think of currently playing for the Leafs would be Komorov but with more upside
1 month ago on GDT: Game #62, Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., CBC)
@Beleaf67 I think Leipsic makes the Leafs out of camp
@rustynail Bernier got the memo
@HHT Of all the places I've been around the world, I still rank Quebec women #1
@dlbu dlbu E @Fish Head One of my best buddies lives in Portland and has season tickets to the Winterhawks. He said that he believes Lipesic will be a great add to the Leafs and should be similar to Komarov. I'd like that.
1 month ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson
@dlbu dlbu E @Fish Head Good point.
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.
@Dogger He's worth a 1st pick and maybe even more
I'd jump at a 2nd but I would rather have him than a 3rd
@Dogger I realize he made more but if we held back 50% we would have at least got something and we'd have a smaller cap hit
@.Kong. @Fish Head Poor management decision
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.
@GibsonLPStudio Bernier to the Stars for Ritchie and Oleksiak
1 month ago on Agent Pat Morris on David Clarkson trade
@Xxxxxnew Not a game played this season and they get a 2nd round pick for him? Insane. What if he can't play?
@Mattmark The cup? What's that?
@Whalz and OJ
@Whalz If that's right then that changes everything.
@MaxwellHowe @Fish Head You never know. I just wouldn't want to be limited at such a critical time
@MaxwellHowe @Fish Head I'm not 100% sure but I thought it was when the contract expires July 1st
@MaxwellHowe Can have 3 max and would limit options for trades at the draft
@king leary Not sure how he has a job in the media.
@North Kariya @zoidbergman Yeah, that's what I'm thinking
@Whalz If Sharp was flipped for a 2015 2nd and you also get Tervainen and their 1st it could be good.
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
@Whalz Why no?
@zoidbergman @Fish Head I can't see the Hawks doing this though. I think it's too one sided.
@zoidbergman That would be great for the Leafs if they can then trade Sharp for a 2nd in this years draft.
@MaxwellHowe @Jay31 I would be thrilled with that and you could let the Oilers keep the 3rd and I'd still be thrilled. Bernier needs a change of scenery. He has moments of brilliance but needs a new start.
