Sorry buddy, maybe the value is there but we dont need him, we just need a guy like armstrong healthy, you can have mac but we need a man who gives a damn in toronto and if he actually recovers he can do that.
Has Doug been that bad? I thought he was a core part of the team...
No, had a rough start to the season but so did everyone. He's back to form now, playing with Burns. We have no issue with him, it's just he only has one year left of his contract and we likely cannot afford his next one. We also have a lot of NHL ready defensive prospects waiting to get a shot (Petrecki for instance, Irwin, etc).
We had that D. Murray thread, and I think this one not a bad idea for both sides. It's my first proposal thread, so don't flame me please, especially considering a Leafs fan proposed the majority of it in that thread.
See...I respect replies from Leafs fans that give useful input like "without another trade, no room on the backend for Murray" or "We would like to keep MacArthur/Armstrong", etc.
This kind of feedback is useless - could you elaborate? So far, your statement is not supported by stats or other hockey fans, so to be honest, your statement is dumb. Thank you for your input - Try again.
(Sorry if that seems a bit harsh...I was enjoying reading some of the good Leafs' opinions/feedback, but this kind of stuff always bugs me.)
