lol people should really look into the leafs deals a little more. people see giguere and phaneuf and jizz their pants. these arent teh sameguys that they were 3 seasons ago. giguere was playing poorly with guys like prnger and nieds in front of him; what’s he going to do on the worst defensive team in the league?
phaneuf is an over-aggressive defenseman. he can pot you some goals on the powerplay (although hisoffensive production hasfallen) and can land big hits. his “big hit” attribute often leaves him out of position and he is known for that. that could be tolerated with kipper in net and bouwmeester and regehr there to cover his tracks, but where does that leave him on the worst defensive team in the league?
now we get to cap space. the leafs just added 6.25 million onto next years cap. that leaves them with pretty much exactly 12 million assuming the cap stays the same (even though it will prob go down).
the leafs have the following forwards signed: kessel, grabovski, stalberg, bozak, orr, rosehill, sjostrom.
goalies: giguere and reimer
their defense is “set” although it consists of 5 or 6 grossly overpaid guys.
how do the leafs expect to fill that many holes with under 12 mil? they have no forwards, no goalies (although overpaid), and a grossly overpaid defense.
the leafs very may well have given the bruins another top 3 pick next year
Break it down all you want, at least Burke goes out and gets him. I hate Burke however, he wants a guy he goes and gets him. Whether or not it works out will be seen. We seem to take the wait and see ( months) maybe our guys will come around. Which style is best ???
so youre saying make tons of haphazard trades no matter if they hurt your team or not?
Is that what I’m saying ?? Do you know how to read ?? It is 2 different styles that I’m comparing, don’t know which is better ? I would make some trade(s) to shake it up. Every trade in the world is really unknown if it is going to help or hurt your team !?
you said break it down all you want, but at least burke goes out and gets guys. i take that to mean dont think about how things might turn out and just get a guy that you like.
I think this is going to help the bruins pick from toronto live up to its expectations. Toronto traded there two top scoring players. Unless they make another trade for a forward, there screwed. This allows toronto to stay on the bottom. And makes the pick as valuable as it can be.
I just wish we could be analyzing the bruins instead of toronto? I think its embarrassing. I dont know who you guys think your kidding… Phanuef and giguere are good players, and the way the bruins are playing we up against more defense and a better goalie.
My frustration with pc is boiling over. This is a great team with lots of potential but an OBVIOUS problem, now fix it!
analyzing the leafs is analyzing the bruins after the kessel trade. giggy isnt any better than gustavsson and you can say that they improved their defense, but they completely obliterated their offense.
JS Giguere has a Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe trophy. Gustavsson? Come on. Giguere’s 32 years old, and although I think he’s terribly overpaid, he’s an upgrade over anything the Leafs have. Burke’s getting ready for next season now. He moved a bunch of players he didn’t want back and got some big time players in return. Say what you want about either Phaneuf and Giguere. They can play.
All of this works out great for the Bruin’s possible top 3 pick this year anyways.
ive always been a huge giguere fan too. this sucks. i grew up rooting for the whale, so former whalers always have a special place in my heart.
i hate that im rooting against him now.
I disagree. Yeah phanuef is a solid defenceman with a great shot but is he worh 7 mill? Thats Chara money, and you cant compare the two! And believe me kid, if Phanuef was THAT great calgary woulldnt have traded him. Bowmeester and Regehr are clearly more valuable to the flames! As for Giggy lol where do i start ???? This guys numbers are horrible in the last few years, even with Niedermayer and pronger in front of him! He’s so bad that he lost his stating role to a young rookie. And the best part is the leafs gotta fork out 7 million dollars for this fool?!?! LOL WOW your better off with Vesa if you ask me! Not to mention thier RIGHT up againts the cap even after trading have thier team !!! Phanuef and Giggy’s salarys ALONE are more than the 5 guys they shipped out to “SUPPOSABLY” save money! Capeesh?
agreed el woppo
He lost Stajan, Mayers, Toskala all who weren’t going to b re-signed.
He traded Blake who no one liked.
White was going to ask for a huge pay raise and I doubt Toronto was going to fork over money for him.
Hagman was the only thing of true value he dealt.
does anyone think that this will set the dominos falling? what does this mean for the b’s?
just want to say ponikerovski is supposedly on the block with 39 points, more than any bruin… just saying, maybe hes worth a shot, probabl wouldnt take too much to get him and we wouldnt have to blow up the team… just throwing it out there
At this point I don’t really care. I find it more fun rooting for the leafs to lose lol.
all these effin trades and the bruins arent apart of anything….come on chia
