  1. I didnt mind kipper, although I found him a lot more amusing than I did insightful Mac I didnt really like at all. Oh well hopefully its a good new lineup. Im in the van all day these days so I will be listening to whoever it is every day.
  2. No, everyone is sure thats EXACTLY why lol... however, the logic seems to have been that its a wash on the ice, we had been to ECF with PK twice, and the final element missing was grit and character and leadership instead of fancy pants fedoras and spineramas aka being a selfish primadonna as they saw him and hey , look at the results! ....oh wait
  3. My memory may be wrong but I seem to remember that signing coming out of nowhere and everyone going OH GOD NO. I dont see them being similar, gardiner can actually put up points. alzner was a defensive dman who was already going off a cliff in washington. that said anything more than a 2 year deal im not interested he deserved respect the first time his contract ran out. that was one of bargain boys biggest punk low class moments. at this point theres no point, he's finished. yeah he made those streit and plek deals, those were pathetic. def not precedent to do it again
  4. very reasonable take. well said. at the end of the day, we appreciate that trading and drafting and signing free agents is hard...but thats literally what your job is. if its too hard go be a suit model. leafs needed a top rd, they traded a good player and got one so did NYR. so did NJ. The chiarot signing is just like the epitome of the bergevin habs. honestly, even a playoff appearance that ends in a 1st round fizzle out is more than enough reason to move on.
  5. Our RW depth BEFORE trading Shaw, was gallagher shaw armia/lehkonen weal/whoever which was absolutely not good enough as it was, and then we traded shaw for cap space we didnt use, and now just passed up a perfectly affordable top 6 winger. you poor guys thinking he is going to do something....he is going to get a guy from waivers and trade a plug for a different plug and beyond that I do not hold my breath. there's no plan and this guy is not serious about winning. its about creating the illusion and keeping his job. unless everything goes unbelievably right, which would be no testament to bargain boy anyway, I would expect similar results to last year. bubble team that needs everything to go right to get into the playoffs, with no real horses to make a serious run either way
  6. I am jealous of the leafs because they made a real trade to address a need, not because I want to be in their cap hell. I am jealous of the rangers because they acknowledged that the team they had was not good enough and it was time to move on from their veteran core. we half did it by moving patches but cling to weber as if he's not rapidly declining asset. as for shaw this was absolutely the time to trade him, but either as a package for something we need or to free up his cap space for another trade for something we need, not to make a joke of an offer sheet and then do nothing you keep holding your breath for what bargain boy is gonna do, this is the team, you're looking at it
  7. I think hes saying essentially what I'm about to say. We just arent being serious. Everything we do is just platitudes, treading water. Since when is "hoping to make the playoffs" an acceptable philosophy. I was listening to the tsn radio guys and someone was saying oh he tried! you gotta admit hes trying! you know what that kind of trying is? when you ask out the girls you like and they say no and you go oh well I tried! I guess Im single forever! not my fault, I asked what else is there to do? You up your game, you get serious when you arent getting what you want. you never trade subban for weber no matter how much of a problem you think he is. thats a loser trade. you being serious? you get prospects and picks, or you keep your legit star, not get an older safer guy who isnt going to make a difference. you find a way to keep radulov. even if you overpay. at least as a fan , I say, well he had to overpay. He's trying to keep this team as stacked as possible. He wants to win now. Thats just two of the bigger examples in recent history but its all we ever hear. Im trying. Its hard. Loser talk. What did we do this offseason, trade shaw (good!) to get cap space (...ok..) to offer sheet aho with a very reasonable deal? and that was all we had planned? oh well I tried. she said no. Incel. Trade shaw as part of a package to get that dman we obviously need. and maybe give up more than you want. because you have to if your serious about winning. Im so jealous of toronto. they needed a top RD. they traded an important player and got one. Im so jealous of the rangers. they had the guts to say not good enough, traded mcdonagh and nash and look at them now. we said ummm well maybe we can kinda do it and kinda did nothing. The only way we win anything is if we luck out completely with these kids like we did with the last 2 trades and they all pan out immediately and fill all the roster holes that need filling. thats not a plan, thats just plain old hoping it all works out somehow. I honestly kinda hope we have a bad year and miss the playoffs comfortably because its the only way we have any kind of chance of moving on from this crap
  8. Whats being reported is they want a 2nd rounder and a B level prospect for gusev. we should be in on that all day
  9. This is exactly why I have such a bad taste in my mouth. Thats what I expected. Thats a move from a GM who is serious about winning and addressing a team need. This Chiarot move is a move by a loser who isnt serious about anything other than window dressing to keep his job
  10. nobody at zero years would have been better than benn or chiarot. keep the space open and work on making a trade.
  11. my friend...I'm here to tell you.....this is it. You now know the roster for opening night. enjoy
  12. This offseason has really bummed me out so far We start by trading shaw and dlo , which I am totally in favour of, to make room for? a big signing? a big trade? no! for making this really stupid offer sheet to Aho for totally reasonable money that they would match easily, and then we address our LD situation by signing yet ANOTHER PLUG This feels so much like the Alzner signing. another "safe" guy who doesn't address the actual needs of the team and is going to be pressed into duty way above his ability stay mediocre bargainbin. hey "at least you tried!!"
  13. the leafs had a glaring need at RD and they traded for tyson barrie rangers traded for trouba we signed yet another plug. Bergevin, I had enough of you 2 years ago. I really, truly hope we don't sneak into a playoff spot because this guy needs to be out of here
  14. 1. We are officially meeting with duchene this week, so I guess we will be offering him something formally 2. friedman has linked us to corey perry, of course 3. marner is actually meeting with other teams, so an offer sheet on him is really not far fetched at all. he recently posted a picture of him and max domi, so from all this i think its safe to conclude hes 100% coming here
  15. refused to even call the guy back. the all class regime
