I'd take Gilmour, Clark, Sundin, Roberts over Phaneuf or Kessel anyday. These 2 guys we have are not franchise players, they are not difference makers. Obcourse I will hear Kessel is 5th in the NHL in scoring, he's a great talent, all sunshine and roses in leafsland, we are 2 players/tweaks away from making the playoffs, what a wonderful core we have. It's moving in the right direction. The usual rhetoric.

But in reality if tweaks are what we have in store for next year with this same nucleus we will be in trouble again next year. Need significant changes to move fwd. Trading Grabo's 5.5M contract before July 1 for one, and clearing the deck. Absolutely no confidence in this group, and if anyone here says they have confidence in this group next year, I don't know what the definition of denial is.

Just a guess, he thinks Grabo gives the team a chance to win, and he wants a tank. Quite frankly I like the idea.

You weren't embarrassed those 2 years where Boston had our picks and they drafted Seguin and Hamilton? Man the Burke years have been a ****ing joke.

Out of callups so unless forwards get injured, you're outta luck.

Edit: Didn't realize Kadri tweeted this. I sense a Kadri thread coming.

Darn good thing the Coach and the GM won't let the Leafs tank. Imagine how ugly it would be if they were to do just that!

Someone forgot to give the memo about not tanking to the Toronto Maple Leaf players! Talk about not being on the same page! I THINK WE HAVE A FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE!!

D'ya think the players bet they could lose 50 games? Nice round number!

One point out of fourth!











In the draft pick top five that is.

Is it really that surprising he wants to play?

Getting to the point where he should be a play or trade. Not this year obviously but next.

Ask yourself this: would Kadri have done worse than Bozak in between Kessel and Lupul?
