Woah, Leafs fans now are coming onto this board to offer us stuff?

And here I was, thinking there were too many proposals on the trade board from them

My goal is to keep this thread on topic, given the nature of the emotions involved, I understand that things can happen that people might regret, and posts from our guys and visitors can be taken in the wrong light.

But let me also issue a Message to all reading. In case you were thinking of doing so, do NOT visit other team forums with the sole intention of trolling them about a ROR trade. I would expect and support any outcomes that would result negatively from doing that.

We got this thread here, I'd like it to stay open.

Some clown on twitter is claiming the Avs are trying for McDonagh. While drool worthy, that seems a bit crazy.

As long as we stay on topic, it should be fine. This isn't a trade proposal thread. That crap has its own forum and everything. I mean, we've been more or less repeating the same stuff in here for a few weeks, but as much as it a thread to dispense information and personal analysis, it is also one in which to vent frustrations. Which we obviously feel we need to do. But I have zero interest in playing some ****** trade proposal game in here. It is a pointless thing. Like trading virtual baseball cards with people who may or may not be clear on the concept (and virtual or not, don't offer Bob Uecker for my Honus Wagner).

But people get off on that. Fine. Take it to the Trade board. Leafs fans can offer us Bozak and a 3rd for whatever center is rumored to be on the block. Just keep their kind of scum out of this thread. Toronto or otherwise.

This. I don't see many teams willing to take that kind of risk on a player who has had 2 26 point seasons and a 55 point season. It's still hard to judge how good he's really going to be, it seems he could range from an elite 3rd line center to a great 1st/2nd line center. I just don't see many teams who will be willing to give him the contract he wants (unless he's just asking for so much because he doesn't want to be here anymore.

The boards would explode if that happened. So would my pants.

A McDonagh - Johnson pairing would be great. Couple of American boys.

Hey TPS, based on ROR's tweet last night, you think that there might be a better chance (even a small one) that he ends up re-signing w/ us?

i can think of a few. Ohio St fans,Oakland Raiders fans,Vancouver Canucks fans,Boston Red Sox fans. anywhere those of that ilk converge.

back to Radar though. the impatient person in me wants this resolved now but i want them to get the best deal for the team. even if that's Radar sucking it up and re-signing.

He's a goner for sure. Lacroix is still alive.

Well, I'll at least give the kid some props for "apologizing" on his twitter for that letter being published though I'm not sure he had no idea about it. Probably woulda been a wiser idea for him to say to his dad beforehand not to say something especially if his dad knows Dater.

But let's be honest, me and the rest of yous will boo the kid mercilessly if he gets traded (and I'm usually impartial to those things, also I don't have any plans of attending and paying for an Avs game while the team is such a $@#$$#@ even if I lived in Denver so one of you has to boo for me via proxy).

But all he said was that he didn't know his dad was going to make those comments, and he apologized for the annoyance. I don't know if you're serious about what you're suggesting, or if you're just further resigning yourself to the reality that O'Reilly isn't coming back. But yeah, obviously, none of that is going to happen, and it really doesn't matter whether the fans think his apology was "genuine" or not.

Besides, some fans seem to think a hell of a lot more egregious things about O'Reilly than this. It would make zero sense for this to be the thing that breaks O'Reilly.
Well you have to vent sometime , it's kinda frustrating when it's the first thing you read in the morning

Ok I have to ask , Why is it that most Outsiders that come in here are greeted with an aggressive tone ? It's not the first time that i notice this kind of welcome.

No one will reinvented the wheel, it's been like this since the beginning of time. Fans will overrate the value of their players and devalue the players from the other team.

That doesnt mean that you have to jump on them as soon as they post a "questionable" comment and certainly not tell them to get the F out of there . You dont like the comment you can tell them, but tell them in a proper way , a way that dont seems like you just receved a slap in the face and ready to give one back .

If by any chance an outsider is really trolling us , just report the post . A mod will take care of it and it will end there .

Probably because we're all exhausted from dealing with people underinformed on the subjects at hand. The opinions in the trade forum for instance. O'Reilly is overrated but God-inder is underrated for instance.

Why is everyone so quick to say no to Gardiner in a deal for O'Reilly? I wouldn't do it straight up but I don't mind Gardiner being the main piece coming back. Apparently he's "untouchable" though.

The concussion concerns me a bit but I would still take Gardiner over MDZ. Canadian media and Leafs fans overrate him a bit but he's a good player who is only going to get better.

Next time Avs win at home, Lacroix is going to choke to death on a $2 meatball marinara.
