Leiweke Leaving Toronto after 1 year

21 August 2014 - 12:04 PM

Must be the most difficult job in the NHL and yet their boards continues to hire all these brash, big mouth guys. Add to it the infight between Rogers and Bell and even as an experienced one people are in for hell. But the guy also didn't do himself any favors by trying to remove the pictures of former Leafs legends or book the cup parade. Still can't believe the BOG allowed Rogers/Bell to co-own this team.

 

That being said the star quoted an interview with his wife...I mean seriously he isn't even a player and they are going to interview his wife ? Something is clearly wrong with the Toronto media that place must be crazy.

 

 


Which Players Agency would you choose and why ?

26 July 2014 - 03:56 AM

I thought it would be fun speculating about each individuals favorite players agency.  Personally I would choose Creative Artist Agency found by Pat Brisson and J.P Barry reason being: they aren't as big as Newport Sports and therefore the personal maintenance should be even better plus CAA is the second most powerful agency in the NHL, so they for sure have the power to negotiate great contracts for their clients and won't bow to lowball offers or deal with their clients being treated poorly (i.e Luongo).

Bring in Loiselle or Poulin as assistant GMs?

23 July 2014 - 05:40 PM

Leafs just fired their Co GMs and Loiselle is considered a cap guru, so maybe he could help us with an outside perspective.

Gretzky maybe part of a Seattle Investors Group

Man If I were Canadian this would piss me off like hell, the great one should be lobbying for Canadian teams not US teams. Also I know the guy is extremely rich but like Lemieux he is not a billionaire, so he would need a lot of investors just to finance the arena, player salaries, stuff...I don't think this is a good idea at all.

 


The Post states that Gretzky's group is one of three trying to get a team to the Pacific Northwest, though it's not known if the method would be to buy an existing franchise or set up an expansion team.

 

Why not use relocation it would be easier for all the involved parties
