When a troll comes here, intentionally mis states history, disses your team, intentionally distorts facts about his own team, is delusional in the face of overwhelming evidence, plays with numbers in a futile attempt to make those delusional points, then trash talks when your team is out of the running, then has no balls to come and face the music, you have little choice but to feel sorry for him. Mental illness is not something to be made fun of or taken lightly. But after that, then you kick him when he is down and you keep on kicking. A person needs to hit rock bottom before they can move forward. So the kicking is an act of kindness.

Poor Tuna. He was so excited.
The Leaves go from last year's 20-minute meltdown to this year's 20-day meltdown. I wonder which was worse?

Maybe I'm remembering things wrong, but the one thing Nonis was always good at in Vancouver (and was directly responsible for, even while Burke was GM) was contracts. What the hell happened?

Desperation. They along with the Canucks bungled the opportunity to land a franchise goalie and in desperation traded for Bernier. Now I like Bernier but it it is too soon to hail him the saviour. During that process the alienated Reimer.

More desperation they signed Clarkson that basically everyone laughed at.

They re-signed Phaneuf to a contract that was desperate and laughable. Nonis is acting out of desperation. Here he never seemed desperate but preached patience and calmness. And ya, he was a great contracts guy.

Hah hah.... H Dub, you will never forgive the Laughs for trying to fuck us over with the whole Luo trade eh?

:lol:

Desperation seems to be the only plausible explanation but what do I know.. I'm not a Laughs fan.

We need fish-breath here to weigh in.

That has to be the end of Carlyle. I see Nonis getting another shot to make the Leafs a playoff team.

Then again... http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=448827

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports that Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Tim Leiweke has reached out to NHL Director of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan in regards to a "top hockey operations position" with the Maple Leafs.


Shannahan comes in for a season as "senior advisor" and then if/when Nonis can't improve the team, he takes over as GM?

Yeah all of the Canadian teams have super high pressure to win-now-at-all-costs type of mindset, from the owners to the media hounds and obnoxious fans, it's pretty prohibitive to a teams success sometimes, hence no Canadian team has done well for many years, coincidentally ever since Bettman got hired. :o

Meanwhile the American NHL teams have much less pressure to win, as they're a lot of bigger sports/franchises to focus on with the NFL, MLB and NBA.

So they can toil away and get good picks, stealing/drafting the top tier Canadian centers and dmen in the process.

haha going off on a tangent here, It is why I hope McDavid goes to a Canadian team next year.. however...I hate a lot of Canadian fans, we are all bunch of assholes to any Canadian team that isn't ours.
Too much passion, like a light version of those psycho Euro soccer fans.

Shea Weber pissed about missing post season... http://www.tennessean.com/story/sports/ ... s/7493379/

Could be a good time to steal Paul Fenton who then might be able to trade for Weber!? :D

"Brendan Shanahan to step down from NHL Director of Player Safety to accept executive position with Maple Leafs, likely team President."

So Colin Campbell back to the league office?

I'm putting my money on Kerry Fraser. :mex:

That way the NHL wouldn't have to worry about him publicly shooting down their decisions anymore. :mrgreen:
