Move along. Nothing to see here.

All True... Yet

Does your points not possibly tell us something as well..

The Question is WHY???

Is Philly's System better??? In Toronto if Hitchcock where coach and they played his style...wouldn't Toronto be a more serious Contender??

Could Leafs just as easily have had Pitkanen...Was Quinn asleep on that one??

If Philly 5 core are better..and we Know it than Why didn't Quinn improve his 5 rather than stand Pat and loose the Wesleys and Svehla's that made it better ...

Although I don't exactly agree here..

Kim Johnsson(39 points),Eric Desjardins, Eric Weinrich, Marcus Ragnarsson, Chris Therien (Waivers)

really much different than.......

Tomas Kaberle (49 points), Brian McCabe, Ken Klee, Bryan Marchment & Aki Berg ???
