I know Dreger is a shill for the Leafs, but come on.
Should we really be that surprised?

Years 1-3 will be dreadful too. The guy has awful movement and literally the worst glove hand ever.

I just can't narrow it down to one snarky comment!

Those Sabres jerseys are just awful.. I don't know how the fans in... what city again? *reads front of jersey* Buffalo! I don't know how the fans in Buffalo can stand it.

Also for those of us who like sickly yellow tones but can't narrow it down to just one favourite they appear to have gone with two of them!

The phallic looking "tip" on the number nine wasn't lost on them either.



We came into league at the same time... and apart from a handfull of SCF appearances the only thing these two teams have been battling for worst jersey designs ever.

Finally though everyone came to there senses and went back to their original colours.

Unfortunately we added a constipated whale and they added a slug.

Mother of God...

I don't post much anymore but I have to say, those may be among the ugliest jerseys I've ever seen!

Because they're out expansion cousins, I've always had a soft spot for the Sabres. I feel very sorry for them right now.

Nah, they got lucky with Gilbert Perrault & got a HUGE leg-up on us (granted, our so-called "management" hardly helped....)

Buffalo, have you learned nothing? It's like they want their fanbase to suffer.

That's how the jerseys happened.

Dunno if I can post that pic. So linking just in case.

Can someone explain to me who Paul Ranger is and why he is suddenly a top pairing D after playing in the AHL last year? After disappearing for 2 years?

The same reason that Liles is still a top four defenseman.

You bet, overrated x10.

Too much money for a goalie like Crawford.

Why's that exactly? If anything we're well versed in the school of 'how not to handle goalies.'

Although I do think our troubles with goalies is overblown. Cloutier was awful and should have been replaced, but by all acounts the team loved him and it was harder than it seemed. Before that was a revolving door (a lot of teams go through that for several years) and before that was Captian Kirk and King Richard. Then the Luongo trade and the immaculate development of Cory Schneider. The drama came from having two top end goalies in a high pressure market. Gillis didn't handle it very well, but I don't it think it compares to calling your self a playoff team and annointing James Reimer your starter when you're out in April. That's 'how to ruin a young player' 101. They must earn it.

He was looking pretty good for Tampa before going on a mysterious hiatus from the NHL (I won't speculate). Good for 30 points and solid both ways. Came back after his hiatus (began at the beginging of the 2009-10 season) and was very solid for the Marlies last season. From what I've read he was arguably one of the top players in the American league last year. Still just 28 he's in his prime. Does that mean he'll be a top pairing defenceman for the Leafs? I doubt it. But I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the second pairing and have a solid season while he's at it.

He came back after apparently dealing with some personal issues. Used to be a top 4 D-man for the Bolts didn't he?
