Leafs sign a few players and explanation for high cap space

http://www.mapleleafs.com/story.ml?t...6&e=AdminGroup


According to the official site, the maple leafs have signed Brain McCabe. I'm hoping Brain is the long time brother of Brian McCabe-the smarter version. No more bad passes here. I also do hope that JFJ hasn't signed just the Brain of Brian McCabe as it would look stupid for a brain to be sitting on the ice as our top dman.

Also, it appear Mikeal Tellqvist has accepted the leafs offer of 450,000 million. Our awesome backup needs to be properly nurished and felt going over the cap and spending this much for our backup would lead to success in the future! Hooray Responsibility! Karyia won't join the team but at least we know the reason why, and a mighty good reason too.


Also the leafs have scheduled a PC at 11:30(Seriously) to announce the signing of Domi, Brain, and 450,000 million Tellqvist.

Wow, 450 Billion dollars is a lot for a back up. Probably about a million times what I would consider him to be worth.

Telqvist at $450,000 million is a steal. Half of Canada's economy for the Leafs backup goalie sounds about right, LOL.

Good to see the Leafs put alot of effort into their web site...

What a goaltending tandem you guys got. Telqvist at $450,000 million & the Eagle rich enough to offer cops who arrest him 5 billion.

His body is for sure, I guess some people have some doubts about his other parts though

That said, this is just a page listing the Leafs' current contract status...

McCabe's just making sure he's not breaking his promise to hold out forever for a cap free league by changing his first name to Brain. Makes perfect sense.

And Grandpabuzz, thank you for one of the funniest posts of the year. I just hope no one here at work comes looking to find out who's laughing so hard.

Too funny - you'd think for an official site they'd be a little more accurate.

I can see JFJ with the Leafs board now:

JFJ - "Guys, we're in trouble - Tellqvist accepted out $450M offer - I only offered him that to scare him off, make him think we were losing it. So, we have a league imposed $39M cap - what are we gonna do?"
Board member - "Well, how good is he? Can he stop 5 guys from scoring for 60 minutes? After all, there is only 1 puck....."
JFJ - "Hmmm, he's good but we can't risk going 82 games with a 0-0 tie result - we'd only get 82 points."
Board member - "Well, if he works on his wrist shot he might be able to score?"
JFJ - "I got it! (pounds fist on table, grimaces in pain for a moment)
"Our top player can't exceed 20% of total cap, correct?"
"SO - we increase revenue for the league so that his $450M is legal - therefore we need to make team caps $2,250,000,000,000!"
All board members collectively - "John Ferguson Junior, you're a genius!!!!"

That's quite a bit for Tellqvist. Maybe Fergie's not so confident in Eddie's back and realized the only alternatives were Cujo at around 2,500,000 million or Burke at 1,500,000 million.

On a side note, I guess this dispells the rumours that players are willing to play in Toronto for much less then their market value???

Dr. Evil must be JFJ's cap guru.

450 BILLION Dollars!"

Brain! Nice catch! Maybe he's the Harry Dean Stanton character from Escape from New York?

You guys bash the leafs too much, Tellqvist at 450 Million is a steal of epic proportions! he's easily worth a whole billion.

Am I the only one who found it even funnier when he clicked on the link and saw that they wrote:

450,000 milion

Was the web guy drunk or do they outsource the Leafs website to China or something?

P.S. > This team is owned by teachers!
