Is he going to demand they stop their immediate tanking because he wants to install a winning attitude for once...at this rate they could pick before us :twisted:

MoFus

How the hell do I claim Leafitus if they do the opposite?

You read it here first Raxyor, they will never again face league suspension. Great fucking move on their part.

What exactly are the NHL rules around offering a 7 figure income, during the season, to someone who is responsible for disciplining and suspending the players on your team?

As long as Bettman gets his cut, I think it's ok.

Was it ever otherwise?

Leafs doing their best to guarantee that they will be the first Canadian club to be allowed by the league to win The Cup.

Too bad the spaghetti boys couldn't grasp that and pandered to the local ticket stubbers with Lord LindenTm.

You talkin to me???? :look:

Linden + Shanny as GM = hometown hero and league sanction for a Canadian club to win in the playoffs.

Linden + some other schmuck = hometown hero and some other Canadian club gets league sanction to win in the playoffs.

Nothin against Linden, but TO is trying to stack Bettman's crooked deck with the Shanny move. Not that it will do them much good - the team as configured won't make it past conference finals even if the stars align. Not that that matters much to either MLSE or the league. A round or two and the Leafs still make wads of dough, the Canadian networks stay happy and Bettman still gets one of his favourites to win the Cup and sustain interest down south in hopes of a bigger American TV deal.

Meanwhile, the spaghetti boys pass by Nielson's statue on their way to moderate playoff revenue at best if Linden works hard and is lucky. May as well take that bronze stick and charge at a windmill for all the good it will do to their Cup aspirations.

Don't let Botch know I'm rippin his Tm! Legal letters seem to be flyin these days... :lol:

Linden did drive Goodenow (sp?) out and was the chief architect in getting Bettman his salary cap.

Me thinks it might be time to pay Linden back.

There are better ways to control the Bettman...

Don Cherry just rolled over in his grave. If it had been Gilmour, he would have sported a wood.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
