Alexander Mogilny?

Hey guys, is Alex in the last year of his contract with the Leafs?



And I also heard that Toronto had signed Lindros??? Is that true?

How is it possible to sign a player without a CBA in place?

Alexander Moginly's contract runs out at the end of the 2005 season, this was his last year. Lindros hasn;t signed with the Leafs we'd have to wait for the CBA to teach in order for player movement.

So this means Mogilny is a UFA? Cool. Sorry for people here though.

It turns out Mogilny likely wouldn't have been able to play anyway this year because of his hip injury.

He's likely done as a Leaf. He's just too injury prone. His career might be over too though.

Shame to see this happen...he was one of my favourite players to follow, both due to his skill, and his kick-ass interviews.

He has skills... but the injuries just killed him.

He's done. His career in Toronto, and in the NHL for that matter is over as far as I'm concerned.

I'd argue Berezhin, though Mogilny at least knew how to pass.

You are kidding, right? The only area where Berezin was on even terms with Mogilny is speed, and that's not nearly enough because everywhere else Mogilny is/was superior over Berezin.

Actually Pat Quinn would agree with you.
Quinn said that Mogilny is the most talented player he has ever coached.

I'd disagree. Berezhin had amazing talent at least on par with Mogilny (during their times with the Leafs) however he lacked motivation, defensive play and teamwork.

Berezin had no amazing talent. All he had was speed and his one inside out move which everybody figured out after a season or so.

I don't know how you can even put the 2 in the same sentence together.

I was wondering the same thing.

Anyway, I'm sure Mogilny will be back. But not with the Leafs.

I agree with you, except I'll say that he had no speed either.

He staked like Domi.

didn't Domi win the fastest skater at the Leafs Skills competition 2 years ago or so?

Yup. He did take a running start though...

Speed was Berezin's greatest skill.

That's irrelevant to the fact that Domi is a fast skater.. perhaps not the fastest on the team, but still fast.

He had a good shot to. Not the most acurate but it had some get up and go to it. I was not a huge Berezin fan. But he was exciting to watch at times. Kind of like a Daigle type player tons of skill and potential with not much heart or desire to be a complete player.

I don't think Berezin could ever be accused of slacking off or floating.. He just wasn't good enough.

Were you watching the same player? He floated like sea-doo, would take a shot from behind the net if it meant he didn't need to pass, slept through more shifts than a night-watchman. Just an uincredibly skilled, incredibly lazy player.

I disagree.

I can understand where you're coming from because no-doubt Berezin was a very one-dimensional player. But I wouldn't say he was lazy. He worked very hard on offense. Not so much on defense though.

I remember when he was on the Leafs he was a friend and roomate of Tie Domi. I recall Domi saying that a lot of people didn't realize how competitive Berezin was and how badly he wanted to win. People forget that he scored some big goals for us.

I for one liked Berezin. He wasn't the most rounded player but you've got to admit he could score goals. Maybe he didn't pass enough, but if you ask me we had too many guys last year who didn't shoot enough.

During his three playoffs in Toronto, Berezin scored 4 times as many goals as Reichel and Renberg did combined in their three playoffs.
