    That's real Leaf logic right there... a guy appears to be doing a great job in Europe, so bring him here to North America (where he doesn't have the same network of industry contacts, or personal...

    Well said! The only possible way to have an open budget (like the Leafs and Raptors do), and still suck, is to have piss poor/feuding management. I've fired both Bell and Rogers; I've convinced my...

    That wasn't Sparks at this years Mem Cup this year (he was with the Marlies). Sparks had a fairly mediocre OHL career (possibly because of playing for a fairly medi-ocre Guelph team at the time), and...

    Meh, tomaytoe tomato... b/u C's generally suck. Bhullar brings some rim protection, 5 fouls, and in 12 minutes, I'm guessing he could play at his top pace.

    Sign Sim Bhullar to stand under the basket and swat for the 12 minutes per game that Jonas needs to rest. Worry about a b/u C if Jonas gets hurt. Bhullar is tough to move on the defensive block, has...

    He'll come quickly. Flying coach with Livestock and staying in unrenovated 1970's Soviet era student dormatories for away games will get old quick! For the love of the game I suppose... the guy...

    You say low risk, high reward... I say throwing crap at a wall and seeing what sticks. This is every off season; Jonas Frogren (oh, he played well at the world championships the year that we signed...

    I'm fine with it. There isn't a hard cap, and as far as I'm concerned; Rogers has a duty to their long suffering basketball fans to spend and pay the luxury tax if it means putting a top team on the...

    Better get a big minute defenseman back or we're screwed?? As opposed to being a non-playoff team picking eighth overall with him? A bit of an overstatment. Giving Dion the contract was the right...

    I think I'd move him, and let someone else try that experiment before doing that myself. The forward position ON A GOOD TEAM, is no less complex than defense (foecheck, board play, back-checking)....

    I agree with you to an extent... I love Ehlers and Perlini I like as well (don't know enough about Nylander to comment). But I don't think you pick Perlini based on his chemistry with a guy that may...
