Were not getting stamkos, just like we were never getting Richards.

Signing conelly at this point would be stupid. Even with him in the lineup getting into the playoffs will still be a problem. Not to mention it would likely kill our shot at a lottery pick next season.

Wsh, Pit, Philly, Bos, Win, Mtl, NYR will all be better then us next season. We might be able to sneak into 7th or 8th IF grabo - kule - Mac? have a repeat season, and if reimer plays like he did last season.

Now, I hate to see the leafs loose and am against tanking but look at our options :

1. Sign conelly, still probley wont make playoffs

2. Gut our prospect pool to trade for a real 1c.

3. Let frattin, colbourne play, basically tank for a good draft pick.

I hate the idea of tanking, but it is better then missing the playoffs anyway, and having a ****** draft pick.
