Does he really think Kubina would have been a significant upgrade over Campbell?

I wonder what he'll have to say to the Toronto brass considering they're rumored to still be shopping Kubina as far as I know.
Leafs will trade Kubina and sign Campbell as a UFA.

Gave the Stars headaches when they couldn't close out the series.

We're very grateful he took the blatant penalty which led to the series winner, though!

He didn't say anything bad about Campbell, his comments were completely unrelated.

There shouldn't have been, considering the team around him.

Some of you need to watch the press conference before you post. All Ron Wilson said was had Kubina been on the Sharks he probably wouldn't be coaching the Leafs right now. Now for all we know he could be referring to having Kubina and Campbell both playing for the Sharks. The addition of one players doesn't guarantee a cup, but it sure makes it more likely. Wilson obviously thinks highly of Kubina and felt he would help the Sharks achieve their goal.

Before you get toooo cocky - correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Canucks finish with only 5 more points than TO last year? Didn't both teams fail to make the playoffs?

Besides, even if we were THAT bad, Toskala alone will steal at least ONE game for us

Glad someone's considered that this may be what he meant instead of just assuming it was a cheap-shot at Campbell. He didn't say "If we'd gotten Kubina instead of that bum Brian Campbell....."

I took it as him meaning if they had BOTH guys, never even considered it a shot at Campbell until it was suggested here

I don't think they'd have ever had both blueliners. If they picked up Kubina the day before the deadline, I doubt they'd have gone after Campbell as well.

He just had a premonition that Kubina would have turned into Bobby Orr if he had joined the Sharks at the deadline.

Thank you.It was an innocent comment, not a shot at Campbell, but rather praise for Kubina. He was talking about his high opinions of some of the players on the team, and Kubina's name came up which he clearly indicated he was almost a Shark, and said that he might not be the coach of the Leafs if he had been, meaning Kubina would have brought enough talent to the team to push them into the playoffs.

I think the more scathing remarks were the ones he DIDN'T make... McCabe was conspicuous in his absence...

Meh, the Sharks don't do any better with Kubina than Campbell. They lost because they couldn't score, not because they couldn't defend.

I'm pretty sure that Campbell was brought in in part to help the offence, specifically the PP.

San Jose doesn't have enough asset or budget to obtain both Kubina and Campbell.

He's hated by the entire HFboards already. I love being a Leaf fan.

He also confirmed that Toronto is indeed the centre of the hockey universe. The mecca of hockey, if you will.

Toronto > NHL.

Yeah, and Kubina would have done no better than Campbell offensively. End of story.

That's implying Campbell actually did anything offensively.

He was bad in the playoffs, but without him, the Sharks probably finish between fourth and seventh, and get eliminated in the first round. Pavel Kubina is nothing special in the offensive end. He has 6 points in 38 career playoff games.

I am wondering if he was put up to saying something like this by the Leaf brass in an attempt to increase Kubina's trade value...

Classic Wilson. It's never his fault, he won't take the blame for anything and he'll give you excuse after excuse. If you don't hold yourself accountable...

Remove the offence and Kubina is stronger, blocks shots, and hits to a better degree than Campbell.

Where's the "take that Campbell" coming from? Did he say if he got Kubina INSTEAD of Campbell?

If not...it simply means he valued Kubina.


Ron Wilson is going to do wonders for the Leafs. He's a hardass, but he can coach.
