Either way, never liked the guy and never will.
Because his opinion doesn't matter. As a sports reporter/journalist his opinion is irrelevant, you're supposed to report the news not give your opinion. Who cares if he believes it or not, he posted it cause it's newsworthy.

Seriously - again - am I the only one in here who doesn't think this account is real?

Or are we all too busy ******** on each others' players to consider that possibility?

To be honest, this makes no sense - unless Spezza has made trade "comments" again...I mean, we really really REALLY can't afford to lose Spezza...and we have too many defenseman as it is...so what would be coming back that makes sense from a Leafs POV?

I really wouldn't be happy with Kadri + 1st + something mediocore, but that's really the only trade that would make sense...

Hopefully this is wrong.

I dont get why everyone is talking about a trade instead of the chance of FA :/ that I can see happening. A trade maybe, but FA for sure it could happen.

All Im saying is it so hard to believe that Tavares actually likes Long Island?

Mayby I should not but I take it personally when people from other places speak bad about LOng Island because Im born and Raised here.....The Majority of players that have played here STAY here on the Island to Raise thier Families and live....even after they have no more Afiliation with the Isles organization.....
Absolutely. LI is a beautiful place with anything you could ever want within an hour drive... Anyone who's ever been to the island would never question wanting to be there, IMO it was more about ownership/management. Wong was perceived as someone with no clue about hockey and the team was his toy. Garth Snow has done a solid job and IMO JT wouldn't have been so inclined a few years ago.

And I think Leaf fans are sometimes overly offensive or defensive because they can do no right on these boards. They're trolled and flamed by everyone no matter what the situation.... And the funny part is, look at how many players come from southern Ontario and grew up as Leaf fans... For a bunch of idiots, it's quite a hockey hotbed for talent.

Re; the OP... His family is from B town and they're huge Leaf fans.. It might just be wishful thinking, although Hodge is usually pretty good... Where there's smoke there's usually fire... But then again it could always be someones crack pipe smoking.

The big thing that determines this deal is the Leafs position at the deadline. If Toronto is in a playoff race I see Burke doing this, dumping off most likely Connolly or Grabovski along wiht picks and prospects.
That's great that Burkie may want to do this come trade deadline but why does Ottawa do this? Why do we want to downgrade? Because a family member(s) who is a leaf fan goes spouting at the mouth?

That's great. I want no part in downgrading from Spezza to Kadri, all while hoping that one day he'll reach Spezza's level.

I would laugh so hard if Spezza magically ended up in Blue and White.

I can't imagine it'd be a pretty trade for the Sens though.

It would have to be based on how long Bryan Murray thinks the rebuild will take. Having 2/3 extra 1st round picks goes a long way, regardless of where abouts they are in the draft, people don't give them up for cheap anymore.

I'm assuming Murray would ask for Colborne since your C depth would be Ziba - Regin - Stone? and a giant 2-way playmaker would be nice. Maybe Kadri? Frattin could also be of interest because of his size, heavy shot and recent progress. Maybe add one of the Leafs goalies to Ottawa in case Lehner takes a step back in development?

There's a lot the Leafs could offer. Not top end blue chippers but a nice package overall that puts the Sens in a great position for the rebuild which is exactly what Murray is charged with doing for the team.

If voracek and 1st got carter, then it will be probably be around kadri+1st+D'amigo (good solid forward) or Colborne+Frattin (very good powerforward) +1st+Rynass (if lehner pans out, rated 8D, Btw)

This is the best I've heard, credit to SensJersey11:

"Hey Jason, I know we just spent hundreds of thousands of dollars marketing you all over the city over the last two months; we've put your face, literally, on every piece of Sens promo space (right next to our 20th anniversary logo, actually... you remember that huge year-long celebration that we're going to be pushing literally the entire season?), we've told you that you are our future captain, we've featured you in every clip about the future of our hockey club, and you are going to be the main voice of the Sens to our fans for the forseeable future...

... but you know what? NAAAAHHHH, let's trade you to the Leafs instead! YEAH, THAT'S A GREAT EFFING IDEA. That way, ALL SEASON, whenever a Sens fan looks at ANY of the marketing we've done for this season, they'll be reminded of the fact that we traded you to our BIGGEST rival.

OH, and of course, we're ALSO going to have you personally visit every one of our season ticket holders, and kick them in the balls on your way to Toronto, just so they know how badly we screwed over their loyalty to us during a rebuilding season."

Holy ****, that must mean he's good

Kind of funny, but posting HF Rankings is relatively pointless.
