I for one think the Leetch trade was a good one for the Leafs. Leetch is a much more well rounded defenseman then Gonchar. Although we musn't kid ourselves and think it's the same Leetch of '94 but he is still good enough and can still provide another year or two of decent play. Although I also think they did give up a tad much but they are trying to win today.
btw, unconditional support for a team that sucked that much during the 80s isn't something you should be proud about. It's outright foolish if you ask me. You're just encouraging them to suck even more while stuffing their pockets. Thank God they're under new management!
After six homes games, the Canadiens are averaging 19,651 spectators per game, down 665 per match from last season, which was already down from the high of 21,002 in their first full season in the new building in 1996-97
There average when they were struggling is higher than the Leafs. That makes you look stupid my friend.
I don't even know why I am responding to this. You obviously haven't been following the conversation. I could sit here and say that you look stupid now, but I won't resort to that. Think what you want.
The draft is overrated its a crapshoot. Leetch is better then anything they can draft at this point. Why can't people pick up on the cycle here? Detroit does it,Colorado does it,Philly does it, Toronto does it.
They go for it they don't wanna sit and stand around for a "might be" they go out and get proven players, I applaud them.
