Your opinion of these two Tweets from Steve Simmons

Looking at Steve Simmons Twitter page I saw these two Tweets from him and wonder what you think of them?

How many times did Mr. Burke insist: We're not trading Luke Schenn. I think I've lost count. But then, what was he supposed to say?

First reason to worry about Leaf draft pick Matt Finn: His favourite player growing up was Bryan McCabe.

Bryan Mccabe was very good for the Leafs. It was the idiotic media like Simmons that sunk his value.

Bryan McCabe made Team Canada playing with us. Its not like he was terrible. He just fell off as he got older

If Finn turns out to be as good as McCabe, it will be one of the steals of the draft.

My thoughts are that I don't care what Mr. Simmons has to say about anything.

This is part of the reason why players don't like playing in Toronto.

Wasn't it "we're not SHOPPING Luke Schenn" which is completely different. In fact, I'm sure Burke said on several occasions that he can assure Luke that he wouldn't be traded but that he wasn't trying to.

Seems like Simmons being Simmons.

What an idiot. Matt Finn would be lucky to ever have a career McCabe did which is a pretty good career.

Why does anyone employ Simmons? He is a complete ass. He is the worst leaf 'fan' in the world, and there are plenty of bad ones on HF so that is saying something.

Burke said he never offered Schenn at the deadline. Doesn't mean it wasn't discussed.

In 2004, Mccabe got over 50 points, and +23 and was 4th in Norris voting. What a ridiculous tweet by Simmons.

Mccabe was criminally underrated in Toronto.

I feel that I should mention as well that McCabe was the big prospect that was used to get both Sedins at the draft. He had a lot of promise early on in his career and did pretty well too. Just, as someone said, started to fall off.

How does this bum still have a job? He's one of the main reasons the Toronto Media is 'too hard on the players and management'

What a hack.

There's a reason he writes for The Sun.

And why he is employed by TSN is beyond me. My blood boils at the sound of his voice.

Which is something he's probably going for at this point. Embrace the hate, etc.

“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”

Did the can opener help him get 68 points in 05-06'?
