They also had him going to the Islanders with the Habs interested along with a few other teams. I think they had their bases covered like a good fortune teller.

Peca = overrated

Even though their styles arent that similar, I'd take Begin over Pecker any day of the week.

Guys, I have liked practically all the moves made by Taranna this off-season.

If Montreal doesn't get more help down the middle, The Laffs will be challenging for our spot in the playoffs. They had a pretty solid end to the season with the youngsters. I see them better this season.

Hmm .. well I didn't like the Hall Gill signing honestly. Peca is a tremendous player when he wants to, but last year he was nowhere to be seen during the regular season, will it be the same this year? The Leafs need him to be the playoff version of Peca most nights in the regular season. But yeah in general, good signings.

But what makes us better IMO is our goalie duo... When a team has Aebischer as a back-up... it's a good sign lol But for this we only have to hope Huet's gonna continue his last year's streak

I don't think Raycroft's gonna be awesome this season with the leafs

Nah. The Leafs are much weaker on the wings. And while they'll have Sundin and Peca, their situation at center isn't that hot either; I'm not so sure they're even ahead of the Habs. Peca hasn't been a scorer for a while and Sundin cannot do everything himself.

Peca doesn't need to score. He needs to play sandpaper. And he's good at it. Plus, he's got talent.

I see the Laffs getting serious, man. Their defensive corps is pretty solid. Kubina's signing has them getting 3 defencemen who can play pretty much 30 minutes a game. We have 2.

Their goalie situation is the question mark.

Well, not for 82 games, but he can surely carry his team alone on his shoulders for a couple monthes.

The Leafs are an intriguing team for next season. This past year, they were hot & cold, a bit like us in fact. We'll see what they can do next year...

We have Samsonov, Boston has Chara, Toronto has Gill and Peca... Interesting moves in the Northeast this summer.

Jeez man the sun hit hard today !!!

Laffs line up:

Steen-Sundin-O'Neill
Stajan-Wellwood-Suglobov <-- They will be lucky if 1 of them scores 20.
Tucker-Peca-Ponikarovsky < -- Might have been effective in '04
Antropov-Kilger-Battaglia <--Useless
Ondrus/Belak

McCabe-Kaberle
Kubina-Colaiacovo
Gill-White
Harrison

Raycroft <-- Raaayyyycrooooffftttt
Aubin <-- The Pens didn't give him his QO...

Sandpaper is all well and good, but the Leafs still need to score to win games. Sure they have Sundin, but their top scoring wingers are O'Neill, Tucker, and Ponikarovsky.

We have 6 solid defensemen however who can play a whole game together; plus some of the defensemen CAN pitch 30 minutes on occasion. When McCabe and Kaberle weren't on the ice the Leafs were always vulnerable, so those two guys ended up being overused and while they can play 30 mins a game, they eventually wore down and became vulnerable late in games. Kubina will undoubtebly help there, but only so much as his defensive partners are not too good. And what about their bottom pairing, is it as good as Dandy and Bouillon? Those two can go 3-4 in a pinch. I think I like Montreal's defense better, it's more well-rounded and more mobile.

Their team is, ultimately, shallow. If the youth steps up it will help, but the Habs are much deeper.

Sundin,Steen,Peca,Wellwood,Stajan,Kilger,Pohl and Antropov can all play centre. Im not planning the parade route by any means, but the Leafs have no problem whatsoever at centre.

That was a predicted lineup made my me on the Leafs board, hence it has Eklund like credibility.

They already had few defensive young forwards in stajan, ponikarovsky, and many others doing fine job playing defensively so all this signning does is take away ice time from youngsters for a declinning commodity!!

Peca can't help the team in scoring department and thats where $2.5 million seems lot higher then what other would get with similar stats.

I know its all about reputation thats what leafs betted on last year with lindros and allison signning but did that land them in playoff?

Their best part of the season came with youngsters and all this moves are pretty much taking important roles away from youngsters who are capable of playing at higher level then Peca!!
