herad montreal has 8 nhl calibre defenseman as does vancouver i don't know
Yes ..but are these 8th Dmen on these teams..any better than Jamie Pushor??? He would be leafs 8th dman..
That would be the quality of player available.. If the Leafs wanted a Slegr type 8th dman off of Vancouver they could just have signed him themselves..
I don't agree with management usually but rather than get someone else's cast-off I would rather play the kids we have now..
Wouldn't a UFA like Klee still be better than the 8th dman on a team like Montreal that struggles to make the playoffs... The Habs should be hoping the could get their hands on our 8th dman...
I think rather than hold out hope from the Waiver draft I think Leaf fans should get excited of the Player we may Loose (PLEASE) like a Reichel, Belak, Kidd or Fitzgerald type that can open a roster spot for a younger player...
I just don't see how a team can realistically challenge or think they can challenge for a cup by hoping for a waiver draft pickup to fix a poor defense..
