having two aggresive snipers on his wings will be fun to watch.
I watched quite a few games, and it is game sense that makes him who he is.

Physically, he might not have been ready, that's how good the other parts of his game are.

Of course having 21 year old Eberle there, 76 points in 78 games (Kessel had 60 points in 70 games same age) helps pressure the defense.

Rather than Leaf players working with Gary Roberts, perhaps Gary Roberts needs to come work for the Leafs.

I believe Kessel did last summer alongside Hall.

.. and this whole concept of "Bureke moving up in the draft" wouldn't even be taked about if he hadn't let his fat ego get in the way in the first place!

The Leafs could just as easily have ended this past regular season in 29th place, instead of the Oilers, if Burke hadn't continued to press his team to finish as high in standings as they possibly could (even after they were mathemtically elimainated from post-season participation), but his fat ego wouldn't allow him to admit his brutal failure until AFTER THE LEAFS'SEASON WAS OVER.

Everyone, except Burke, could plainly see that the Leafs were swirling around the drain with no chance of recovery by the time the trade deadline came around. Had Burke sold his team's 2nd line players for the draft picks that were apparently offered, he would have virtually guaranteed himself a much-higher pick in this summer's Draft, as well as having multiple firstj-round picks to play with.

And now, becuause of Burke's fat ego, the team/organization is not going to benefit as well as it could have.

And now Burke wants to move up in the Draft (and pay through the nose for the privilege) when he could done it "for free" during the regular season? Sheer genius, Burke, you ****ing idiot!

ROFL , you really don't seem qualified to call anyone an idiot.

It is normal for GM's to explore the possibility of moving up in a draft, so saying you are looking into it is not the problem, its insane fans who read too much into such statements that have the problem.

Ok so you missed the majority of the season where we were one of the top teams until our goaltending collapsed, and you are a gifted psychic (like so many others here ) and you concluded it makes sense to trade our young second line which was not the problem and trade them all for late first rounders so that our teams is set back 3 or 4 years in the hopes any of those picks would become as good as our current second liners or to trade them with our pick in hopes of moving up.

While you may think you are brilliant with your theory draft picks are everything and better than real players sadly Burke is running a real hockey team he hopes to move into the playoffs in the near future, not to have an endless revolving door of trading young proven players for picks and never progress.

While it is natural that you would assume you are a far greater hockey mind than our entire management staff I'm afraid I have to disagree. I think you don't have a clue what real life hockey is and are too fixated on draft picks and prospects to be taken seriously.

Not sure how many more games the Leafs could have lost after the all-star break... They did a pretty good job with that..

The Leafs went 6-11-3 from the trade deadline on, getting 15 out of a possible 40 points, with only two of their wins coming against play-off teams. Not sure how much more they could have lost, since if equated to full season that would only give them 61.5 points.
