#2579706 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by darkmanx on 07 March 2015 - 05:07 PM

Yeah, some of them still don't know much about or owner it seems. just remind them that our payroll was higher than theirs in the pre cap era. Babs well get offers from top clubs and the chance to coach the best player in the game plus a lot of money. If the Leafs want to go to 20 million a year I'm sure he'd sign there but I doubt it. And if the best owner in all of sports makes this personal the Leafs would be in for a long bidding war

 

Yep I use that pre cap era argument all the time when it's brought up, and then I point to the Toronto Blue Jays who are also owned by Rogers (who profited over 5 billion last year) have a payroll of 130 million and refuse to go over that. Illitch and the Tigers payroll is higher.

 

The problem with Leaf fans is they will let you know how rich they are, and how popular they are but once the argument turns into facts they lose their argument and turn into complete assholes and start attacking the city of Detroit and the attendance and how old the Wings teams always are. Pretty sure the oldest team to ever win the cup was the 1967 Maple Laughs.

Man Ericsson is gonna destroy us in the playoffs. So many bad plays every game.

Anderson was centering Tatar and Jurco on the last shift. Hopefully just equipment problem.

Wow, Cole is fast. He got back pretty easily on that back check.

Marchenko is at best their 7th best d-man. He will sit when everyone is healthy. His shooting hand doesn't trump ability.

 

He trumps Kindl and I don't care what you say.

Nyquist sucks in the top six. He's a sweetheart, but a waif. Let him eat up third line opposition while the adults do the hard work against the big boys.

 

I agree. Right now Nyquist isn't playing too good. Making a lot of bad decisions. Let him get some more scoring and get some confidence back then see where you go from there.

I can't wait to see who we acquire in our next trade, in the year 2019.  

 

This guy

 

Jaromir+Jagr+Carolina+Hurricanes+v+New+J




#2576807 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

I don't want anymore additions to this team unless we lose guys like weiss andersen miller kindl off our lineups

Dread to think what we'd give up next for some one who's not a 36 yr old ufa

Doesn't mean everything Kenny does is gold

 

Please point out where I said that in my post. However last year it was the exact same thing when they traded Jarnkrok, you were angry about that as well stating how great he was going to be. Do you want to stay mediocre forever while we hope Backman comes back and Janmark hopefully become an elite center behind Larkin, AA, Sheahan... we can't keep everyone. Cole makes a better team right now. If Helm misses a lot of time who will replace him? Cole is still pretty quick. Yea, 33 points in 57 games isn't too bad either.

With backman retreating back I could live with that ... Janmark has upside for 2 yrs and now it's like whatever let's just give him away for an old ufa cause we still have good prospects

Rather of traded him if we had to in a deal that would be more than a ufa

In 2 yrs if we get outed again 1st round we lost 2 2nds janmark backman jarnkrok for 2 guys who quite possibly don't return and a 3rd rounder

And I just noticed we gave away 3 swedish guys ...are we suddenly giving up on the swedes? Lol

Yea, I know who I'm going with.

Marchenko had another solid game. Really impressed by him so far.

Nyquist was absolutely terrible tonight. Way too many cute plays and turnovers. He needs to play simple and take shots and go to the net.
