Amazingly enough, while the Nolan trade was made with San Jose, 2 out of the 3 players are now with the Bruins.

And they're even more crappy than the Leafs.

Well, we all know another trade with San Jose didn't help them.

Should we consider the Sharks as the Habs from West ?

Mark Stuart was a big part of the Thorton trade...the Sharks are far from being bad, except the Boyes trade who was a error 2 years ago

Thanks Toro,

I definitively like the sentence where Gainey says: Im sure you would like to get married, but you want it be with the right person, right?

why? this is a fact, most of the goaltender start to decline at 35-36, the knees are badly damage at this age for a goalie.

Yeah, what about it? What makes Higgins, Perezhogin and Komisarek so much better than Stajan, Steen and Colaiacovo that you would laugh at them?

Also, Mark Stuart was never "a big part" of getting Thornton. That was Brad Stuart. Mark was drafted by Boston. I'm pretty sure the Sharks used the 1st round pick to draft Steve Bernier. Which would make the trade even worse for the Leafs lol.

You could be right but Lapierre still lacks discipline (see his penalty totals) and is slightly behind Chipchura in offensive ability. Both seem to have great attitudes but keep in mind, Chipchura was named captain of the national junior team and would have made the squad two years in row. Lapierre was never a serious contender for a spot on that team.

Personally, I think Kostsitsyn is the front runner especially if Zednik is traded.

October 3rd 1995
Toronto Trades Darby Hendrickson, Sean Haggerty, and Kenny Jonsson alopng with Toronto's First Round draft choice (Roberto Luongo) in the 1997 draft

for the NYIslanders:
Mathieu Schneider, Wendel Clark, and DJ Smith

I still like this deal by them...

Here's another:
October 1st 1999
Toronto trades Fredrik Modin for Cory Cross and TB's 7th round draft choice (Ivan Kolozvary) in 2001 entry draft...

March 23rd 1999
Toronto trades Jason Smith to the Edmonton Oilers for a 1999 4th rounder (John Zion) and a second in 2000 (Kris Vernarsky)

October 23rd 1999
Chicago claims Steve Sullivan (who goes on to have a 65 point season his FIRST year in Chicago) from Toronto off the Waiver wire.

And another one of my favourites which will be remembered for a VERY long time:
2004 Trade Deadline
Toronto Trades Maxim Kondratiev, Jarkko Immonen 2004 1st round pick (Lauri Korpikoski) and a 2005 2nd rounder (Mike Sauer)
for about 20 games w/ Brian Leetch.
This one'll keep them futile lol


ah well, so long as the leafs pull these type of deals every once so often...(and we dont) I think we'll be allright haahahaha

why would you be upset over it? Brule will be injured all the time with the way he plays on the frame he has. And we all know a quality goaltender is worth alot more than a decent forward.

I agree, and Carey Price is indeed a quality goaltender... He's dedicated

I know some guys will disagree with the pick for a long time... but watching his play in pre-season last year, and hearing his development... I am honestly not regretting the selection at all

Immediate impact: Brule > Price
Long Term impact: Price >> Brule

He's dedicated, and IMO going to be a high quality starter some day IMO 2 years before signs of impact on the habs... then IMO it might be his team.
