Toronto Radio: Illitch is selling everything and Babs will be Leafs GM

17 October 2014 - 07:00 PM

Huge RUMOR headline, but making legitimate press.

Personally think it's BS, but who knows. I would think that working for decades to build a new arena for your team/city only to sell it all off would be a crazy move. 


TSN Radio - McKenzie: Enforcers in the NHL

TSN Radio interview regarding enforcer effectiveness in 2014. Discussion started with (of course) Crosby's treatment last season against the BJs. 

 

They also talk a little about Babs' contract talks.

Who Sits Next? Speculation Thread

27 January 2014 - 09:01 AM

So right now Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Andersson, and Weiss are out but most likely all will be back after the Olympics. 

 

Bert sat last night for Alfredsson and Sammy was waived for Franzen's return. 

 

After the Olympics, there will be 3 players currently on the roster who will not be there. Here are some candidates to be sent down/waived:

 

Cleary

Bertuzzi

Tatar

Jurco

Glendening

Sheahan

 

As the article mentions, Bert and Cleary are struggling offensively and could be waived. Knowing Babs' man-crush for Cleary I am assuming that Danny Boy stays on the team (he has an 'A' on for God's sake!). Bert has struggled but I think he has a net-front presence that can't be easily replaced, even by Franzen. 

 

So, at this point there is a hard decision to see who the "best guys" are. My picks to be sent down are Glendening (hate to see his grit go but they want goals), Jurco (similar to Tatar, not as productive as of late), and Sheahan (although he has played very good and the Tatar-Sheahan-Nyquist combo was great against FLA). But barring an injury-free Wings team (HA!) these guys will get plenty more games this season.

 

Weiss has so little wiggle-room to fit into the offensive scheme it almost isn't fair. The young guys are playing like they have something to prove and are proving it. I think he could be the top trade-bait player (does he have an NTC/NMC?) if he doesn't produce immediately. 


Be Serious: Cleary or Fedorov?

26 November 2013 - 09:21 PM

I know under the surface of this question is biting pessimism and my hate of Dan Cleary and his stupid contract. I know there is really no choice in the real world since Fedorov is tied to his team in Russia and Cleary is ANCHORED to the Wings.

 

But honestly, knowing that Fedorov is well past his prime and likely a waste of a roster spot that should rightly go to an up-and-coming Griffin, I think he would provide more defensive responsibility and a strong point shot for the second PP unit which would outweigh anything that Cleary currently brings to the team.

 

My vote goes to Fedorov.
