Poni is Antro's best friend, they have incredible chemistry together, and is on pace for a career year.

Moore is an energy guy, great 3rd or 4th line player. He knows his role and plays it well.
How do you expect to move on and change the team when you keep bringing back the same guys that couldn't get done the last 3 years.

They pushed it back to March 4th because so many teams play on March 3rd that it would leave too many teams shorthanded due to players in transit.

I made a proposal in the main boards involving him in a Antro/Kubina trade. No fans really seemed to respond to it though. I'd be more then happy to pick him up especially if we can move Kabs as well. He seems like a solid replacement for him down the road. But then again if things go really south for us we could end up with Hedman.

The only team that would probably give us their first for their mistake are the NYR if we took Redden and that's not worth a first. I think we'll simply be taking expiring contracts back for a better return. Move say Kubina to whoever and take back a junk contract allowing a team a little extra space and increasing say an additional 3rd being improved to a 2nd.

I hope Moore isn't moved. He's a great 3rd line player with some offensive flare.

Unless we get some stupidly good offer, which is doubtful.

I am not saying I would pass up on Schroeder but why would you take Morin with another pick? I am sorry but I am all for Canadian contingency on my canadian team.

I like Schroeder, he is very talented but I take Kane over him if both are available at the same spot.

It does matter MSP, Canadians take hockey much more serious than the rest of the world. We have went the Euro route (Sundin) it didn't work. The Sens did the same thing, it didn't work. Look at Stanley Cup winning rosters and you'll see a majority of players from good ol' Canada.

I am not trying be ignorant here, the Leafs have to take the best players available so if MSP is sitting there I don't pass on him to draft Brayden Schenn. My comment was more towards the guy that said we should draft Schroeder and Morin because they are both teammates but I just feel the Leafs would have too much of an American influence.

I want to build my team around guys that are extremely passionate for the game, guys that would absolutely love to put on that Leafs sweater and guys who dream of winning the Cup. There's a reason why the majority of people would pick a guy like Crosby over Malkin. Both have loads of talent and you really can't lose in that department but only one has passion and heart. Only one gives a 110% on every shift, and only one is a leader. I think you know which one is which.

You don't have to, it's pretty self explanatory. If you are still having trouble just ask Chris Prongers wife about Edmonton or ask Chris Chelios what he thinks about Toronto. Maybe you can compare the taxes too.

All the little Canadain boys may dream about throwing on a Leafs or Habs jersey but those little American boys have dreams of throwing on Minnesota and Boston jerseys.

It may not be common but the problem does exist.

I would take Malkin over Crosby. And Ovechkin. I might even take Parise or Kane over Crosby. Just sayin...

Sure he could.

He'll probably be first or second on the list of any team that needs some size up front on their first three lines come trade deadline time, especially because they won't have to do a dance to get him in under the cap.

Parise and Kane over Crosby.......extremely foolish! Both are excellent players but not in Crosby's league. Ovechkin is comparable due to the passion he brings game in, game out but Malkin can be emotionless at times. There is no denying Malkin's talent, I think it's on par with Crosby and Ovechkin but I give the edge to Sid and AO because of the other elements in their game.

...and for this reason easy to replace. Trade him while he has value, he was a waiver pickup afterall, so, any return is a profit, and would be more than we got for more talented players like Wellwood for example.

If we did trade Antro and get another 1st, Burke would maybe try to trade up and take Cowan or dare I say even higher but definitely in the top 3-4 but having said this, would it be better to keep 2 firsts.

Unless it was to move up to number one, I would keep the two firsts in this deep draft year.

keep the 2 first's its a deep draft, unless of course we can move up by adding a veteran player to the pick.

This is just my opinion but i think we should try to get these prospects:

New Jersey Devils
Patrice Cormier He is a powerforward and could be a top two center for us. Burke kind of player.
Kevin Cormier He is Patrice Cormiers brother and is a heavyweight enforcer who barely lost any fights in the Q at 6-3 236lbs.

Vancouver Canucks
Yann Sauve Was expected to be a really good to way D-man but is looking like he is not developing his offencive game. Could be a real good second pairing D-man and a good PK Defence.

Philadelphia Flyers
Claude Giroux He is a shifty winger from ontario who fits in nicely with the new style of hockey in the NHL.

Pittsburgh Penguins
Alex Grant He is a good offensive defenceman who could be a really good pick-up for us because he has a great shot good speed and exelent passing.

These are all players i have seen play multiple times in the Q and 4 of them could be on the top two lines at their position while K.Cormier could be a really good enforcer if he can stay healthy.

I'm going to take a wild guess here and suggest you live in Saint John, NB and a big fan of the Sea Dogs.
