Pretty pointles article. Not sure where the Leafs fit into this push to "Win-Now" article. Nothing the Leafs have done this season was a push to win now. Firing Burke was due to personality conflicts between him and the idiots who run the franchise. The fact that Nonis has not done something crazy like trade for Luongo in a desperate ploy to suddenly start winning demonstrates this. Aside from the firing the Leafs have yet to make any moves except to call up Marlies...hardly a win-now move. I don't where the Leafs fit into this article.

The Jays and Raptors are almost polar opposites. Jays have been patiently building up their prospect pool for years and suddenly decided to spend some of those future pieces in an all out effort to win it all...will be an interesting gamble to watch. The Raptors on the other hand feel like they have been making moves for the sake of making moves for years now in a desperate attempt to win the jackpot and actually land a star who plays well in TO. They never seem to hold onto their draft pieces and appear to be constantly stuck in a rut. The Raptors are no where near a contending team, nor do they have the assets to trade for the players necessary to become a contending team.
