Ummm you were contrasting your Leaves with my Canucks.Island Nucklehead wrote:Isn't that what we plan on doing, despite being neck and neck with the Laughs for fewest wins in the NHL?Strangelove wrote:Ummm...

Ummm you were saying how much better a plan your Leaves have.
Ummm you were implying my Canucks should "aggressively tank" like your Leaves.
So it was a tad bizarre when you suggested an "aggressively tank" includes "splurging on UFAs".
Anyhoo, that "aggressive tank" seems more about trading away non-UFAs (Kessel/Phaneuf/Winnik)
... than it does about trading away UFAs.
And when it does involve UFA trades that "aggressive tank" also seems to be about bringing back cap dumps.
Well there is a lot more to rebuilding a team than just acquiring picks by any-and-every means bucko!
Hamhuis/Vrbata didn't get dealt, big whoop, I suggest you stop your blubbering and move on.
At least those two players are said to be good mentors for the kids my Canucks have been playing all year.
(and please try not to be so premature, Hamhuis might be re-signed)
Your Leaves had to suffer all season with pending UFAs Grabner/Boyes/PAP... and got nothing for them at the DL.
