To be fair, Wilson does seem like a guy who knows he can say whatever the hell he wants this year, likely about people he knows won't bearound when his coaching is actually being evaluated.

Rumour makes sense and I don't see what MSP would gain by lying. Wouldn't be surprised to see him go somewhere close to home (closest AHL team maybe?) for another low-chance prospect who basically won't get an NHL look. I just hope the team can grant his wish.

I believe MSP, not like someone made a new account to throw this at us, hes a respectable active poster and I believe him.

Interesting what he said about the coaching staff. Maybe he didnt like being passed up for young guys like Kulemin on the roster.

How much longer is he under contract with the Leafs/Marlies? I could see him walking if this is the case.

He's shown he can score at the NHL level. The problem is when he isn't scoring, he isn't much use to anybody.

However before his injury this year he was fairly consistent with his scoring, but once Finger nailed him in practice during his recovery he was never given another chance. It's a shame, really.

I always thought after the deadline when we shipped out a couple bodies he would be back up with the big club. Who knows now.

Because it's Jeremy Williams and he's not news worthy?

If anything, it would be news that would come out after he was traded. Didn't the same thing happen with Robbie Earl? As in, once he was dealt there was something about him wanting out of Toronto because he felt he wasn't going to get a proper chance? (Someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Robbie Earl just sucked and Burke traded him for someone with size.

Luke Schenn has dated two girls from Pickering recently, one being my stepsisters exboyfriends sister.

And good for Williams, he deserves a shot to play in the NHL and I wish him nothing but the best.

This is an article from when he got sent down most recently..

http://www.nationalpost.com/sports/s...tml?id=1282859

Quote:
"This is definitely disappointing - I've been a fan of the Maple Leafs my entire life, from as far back as I could comprehend what hockey was," Williams said.

When asked if he feels he can thrive under the demanding Wilson, Williams replied: "Yes I can. I know he's been hard on me, and I think that's what every player needs in a coach. It helps you to not get comfortable and it's constructive criticism.

"Sometimes, you may get angry at [the things] he has to say, but it's still motivation for a player and I think [Wilson] has motivated me a lot."

Though skating for the Leafs was a dream come true, Williams is not opposed to playing elsewhere in the NHL, if he is claimed on waivers before the noon deadline.

"Of course I want to be in the NHL, but it's something I haven't been able to wrap my head around just yet," he said. "I have to talk to a few people here and figure out what's going on.

Absolutely not. Rebuild or not, this screams wanting to throw games, which you should NEVER do.

Its really not like that with most guys. I know a good bunch of NHL players and everyone always says the craziest stuff happens in junior years. Theres exceptions to the rules (Montreal Canadiens) but most guys are trying to lock up a trophy wife by the time they go pro.

There were no takers for Jokinen and Fritsche when they were on waivers because teams need to clear room for them. So he's more likely to be moved for another team's spare part.

Yeah, but Jokinen and Fritsche are at least proven NHLers. All Williams has proven is that he can score now and then, and he provides little else.

My own opinion wasn't that teams wanted him but had no roster space, but rather they didn't think he could replace anybody and make their roster better.

All I could see him getting traded for is another good AHL player.

Bang on. It can't be true. Only a player who lacked character, was only concerned about his numbers and was too lazy to work on his defence would make a commnet like that.
