  1. 2016/17 NHL News

    Can't imagine him staying in Brooklyn...I know I wouldn't.
  2. I would've thought Dave Lewis still had some ties within the Wings organization where he could sit in a suite instead of among the savages.
  3. What the fuck am I watching? Some fag trying to be Bob Ross?
  4. Leafs hire Mike Babcock

    ​I'm sure the Joe will make some noise when Babcock walks into the arena...With BOOS! All kidding aside - I'm certain he'll get a standing ovation.

    ​Hell I'd take both on the Red Wings. The Motor City has this odd habit of resurrecting careers that were once destroyed in Toronto...

    ​I guess the way I see it that a 'rebuild' will not only take years, but who knows what it's end result will be? This notion that the Leafs will become the next LA Kings, or Chicago Blackhawks, or Pittsburgh Penguins is a far reach...Hi-end draft picks, and a crap ton of luck (in later rounds), and smart UFA additions are needed. Will the Leafs end up like 1 of the teams mentioned above, or the current day Edmonton Oilers, or what we saw in Chicago circa mid 90's thru 2007?

    ​From an outsider looking in - it appears a combo of ineffective coaching, micro mgt, and massive media pressure can take a portion of blame in this mess. A good example is how Morgan Rielly's comment on 'being a girl about it' got way overblown...Yeah - not 'pc', but Christ on a cross can things get any worse under the microscope?

    For those who feel the roster needs a major shake up.....Just who exactly do you think will be wearing the Maple Leaf for the 2015/2016 season? Will Leaf Nation accept kids outta Junior/NCAA/AHL? How will Leaf Nation respond if both Kessel/Phaneuf are traded, and who knows what they'll get in return (if a boat load of draft picks, and prospects - well then be ready to ride it out). Yeah - this current roster won't win the Cup, but I can see it making the post season, and that's a good start.

    ​You saw how Team Canada played in Sochi? THat's the epitome of Babs style; smart team defense by minimizing your opponents chances, puck possession, no after the whistle bs (stay outta the box), and capitalize on your opponents mistakes. I know it sounds generic, and it's not the most exciting, but Babs is methodical, and I'm of the opinion the Leafs won't need to make too many moves - in fact I believe if the players buy into his philosophy, and give 100% - the Leafs will be in the playoffs 2016.

    Any news if there'll be a hiring of a GM? I can see Babs making some decisions on player personnel on a interim basis, but I honestly don't think Shanny is the right man for that job.

    ​Well considering we let you guys have Babcock...
