every team goes through a phase of just pure failure, sadly ours has gone for too long. This team needs 2-3 years of a good ol' tank and then 2 additional years of player development. I believe we are on the right track with our prospects but the fact of the matter is we need center prospects terribly. No more drafting defense in the first round.

Oh and for the sake of comfort: Hawks had some VERY bad streaks and after all the years they have been a team, they only have 4 cups to show for it. We will turn things around, it might just take some time and some PATIENCE and non hasty decisions by our management/coaching staff

Get me as many 1st rounders you can.
look... if the Leafs know their done in the season... then OBVIOUSLY you wanna tank the rest via RIELLY

i mean people dont purposely lose for the sake of 1st overalls
"wanting" their team to be 30th position every year

however if you do end up with the 1st overall pick
okay... that's great
regardless of the situation
(of course you have to ignore the amount of great players who weren't drafted 1st overall but just a few spots down, or even late 1st rounders)

the last thing this city needs is a year without playoffs

You aren't entitled to anything as a fan. But if you are one, stick with the bad and the good, or hop the hell off the bandwagon. But once you are off, don't expect to be considered a legit fan.
no matter the cause


a fan will always have a positive outlook on the club
a so called "BIASED" view

the people who just **** on everything to kessel to kadri
oh scrap all these players, just tank for 10 years
via negative view

?
a fan supports the team no matter the situation
30th or 1st
well i mean most likely if you have a negative view about everything

you're probably not much of a fan to begin with
via "band wagoner"

Can you honestly say this team is strong enough to any more than MAYBE fight for a 8-10th spot? IF everything goes their way.



So lets be honest. Call it for what it is.

Sell some of the good assets Burke got for us for some 1st overall picks.


You want to wait until the end before we sell.

Well if EDM is 10pts back at the deadline they sure as hell aren't going to give us a 1st for Phaneuf. But right now he might be. They might finish bottom 10.


I don't want the team to be 30th every year. I want them to be 30th this year!
And I want them to sell enough asets off to get atleast 1 if not 2 more top 10 picks.

There is no #1C available via trade. You can't bank on Getzlaf coming here. ROR is not the answer.

Therefore we need to get a #1C through the draft. If we could get one via trade I would be all for it. I don't want to wait any longer than I have to to have a shot at the cup. But there is no one available that is good enough to lead us past the Rangers and Bruins in a 7 game series.

Wanting to chase that 8th playoff spot just "because", only means you are part of the problem.

It's a half year. Let it go an fix the team.
