So the league will be forcing a youth movement on our Leafs.
Good thing then we locked up our coach another 2 years then ...
Can you imagine where the Leafs would be if they lost that great communicator and highly respected developer of young kids ..
Whoa that was a close one ..
Well at least come playoff time with that much youth movement, he will not be able to
send them all
to the the pressbox like he did Stajan last year ..
See its true there is a Silver lining in everything ..
