Nothing about it here in Boston. But then again, Metro's strong point isn't exactly its extensive hockey coverage
We might have some problems in the next years with cap issues, even though it isn't that bad; buyout Nolan and most problems are gone. We'll see what Eddie does, but for the rest nobody is outrageously overpriced and on a long term contract.
Overall I like the look of the future, and actually think this CBA is pretty favorable for the Leafs. Salary issues will only be potential very short term problems, and after that the lowered UFa age is starting to kick in, with the Leafs as one of the major beneficiaries. Basically it enables teams like the Leafs to potentially get top players in their prime, where they previously only got them at 31. Makes it
easier to rebuild/retool than in the previous situation...
