For the best chat (other than here, IMO), and chat that is filled with anger/frustration/pain and anguish, check out the Flames board, there are some consistently great posters there who I love to read, and they are less than content with things in Flame land.

I love to scour through other teams threads, I never add my "wisdom" as it rarely turns out well, but really solid posters there, love em

I'd undo the Kaberle deal (Bs won the cup in spite of him, not because of) and I'd throw into the mix the '85 deal that saw us deal Fergus to the Leafs for Derlago...classic Sinden salary dump, but that's a discussion for another day.

Searching through google news archives... Apparently the Bruins could've had Darryl Sittler from Toronto in 81-82 but Harry said no upon hearing his contract demands. Typical Harry.
Ooooof, that Allan Stanley deal is bad but the ironic thing about it is the guy he got traded for was Jim Morrison, a pretty decent defenseman, he had originally been with the Bruins and had been traded to Toronto as a 20 yr old for Fleming MacKell.

So which one would you undo:

Kaberle for Colborne, Biggs and essentially John Michael Lilles

OR

Seguin, Hamilton and Knight for Kessel
You guys have the best covnersations over there.

There are people arguing Grabovski is Krejci's equal over there.

Those people are insane (and the worst debaters I have ever seen, seriously, the plot holes in their arguments are the size of Josh Beckett's stomach) and they are making the sane-thinking Leafs' fans insane with their anti-logic.

That fanbase is becoming unglued from reality. Can't blame them much for that though.

I feel sorry for them. I do not mean that in a smart ass way at all either. To me there is nothing closer to a pre 2004 Sox fan than a Leaf fan. So actually on that level I relate and have some sympathy. Especially those guys that are in my generation over there.

Theres no real answer.

Fact is Leafs are the best fans in hockey and were lucky we came out on top of 5 strait trades.


Good luck to a great fanbase and bring on the season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good grief.

Seguin will be than Kessel.
Hamilton will be better than Kessel.
Kaberle was a key piece in our playoff fun.

Colbourne can't even stick with a weak leaf team.

Kaberle was #2 in Assists on the team during that playoff run. (11 Assits, Tied with Krejci)

Let the numbers speak for themselves. I bet it's the exact opposite in Leaf-land for this poll.

I want no do overs. We have a Cup and we will be contenders for years. They have not made the playoffs since the lockout. They are a laughing stock joke. We are the Bruins.

On the bright side for Leaf fan, saying "you have not made the playoffs since the lockout" won't be quite as insulting in about 4 months.

I'll have to think of something else.

I do not feel bad for leaf fans because a. they wouldn't feel bad for you and b. they're the most intolerable people on here.

Phaneuf is not a generational defender, Gardiner is not orr, etc. etc.

Exactly they would be rubbing it in for years if they actually believed they won any of the trades.. Witch they haven't sure there happy with Kessel but they also know deep down they lost this trade

I would do both these trades again period and for the record Kaberle was WAY better then Corvo and Who Knows what Kaberle could have done after a full season with us .... WAY to much pressure on 1 guy to fix our PP and just cause he didn't it was HATE ON Kaberle by most bruin fans end of story !

why are people hating on this thread? yeah we wouldn't undo either but that's the point, because that's too simple. On the leafs board they would surely love to undo both trades, kessel and raycroft, but there's no fun in debating that. It's like the website yourather.com where they ask you stuff like if you would rather freeze or burn to death, of course you don't want either but it's interesting to think about so the site is somewhat enternaining. Just because you don't use the thread it is supposed to be you don't have to flame OP or even insult all leaf fans. that's really rude, they have a great fan base. I see that the thread is pointless, but it's a long offseason, but in the end this is a friggin internet message board so everything we debate on here is ultimately pointless.

People who voted the second option need to be slapped and turn in their fan cards.
