In Topic: Why Is Everyone Comiing Down So Hard On The Leafs?

Oh yes, the Toronto Maple Leafs. How can you hate such a franchise? Well, here's one of several reasons:

THEIR FANS!!

Leaf fans are probably the most arrogant and unknowledgeable fans of any pro sports team around. They think the Leafs are God's gift to the NHL (and the rest of hockey for that matter), they have no insight to what they're saying (like these ridiculous trades they propose), and they live in the past (like their '93 and '99 campaigns), when, in reality, the Leafs are poorly ran team with not much of a future in sight.

damn... I wanted the Wings to get Nolan, he would have fit nice and provided some more grit that everyone keeps bitching about... and I really don't want Billy Guerin, I'm with Ashenden, never really liked the guy, thought he was really over rated and often overpaid. Just doesn't seem to fit in the Wings scheme...

We better get Slava Kozlov or I'm gonna go F***in' nuts...


Personally, you guys should be thankful the Wings stayed away from Owen Nolan. He is quite clearly a shell of his former self (had 40 pts in 76 games and had only 56 PIMs), but if anybody can get the best out of Nolan, it is probably a team like Calgary and Mike Keenan.

It's an unwritten rule that you do not send offer sheets to other teams RFA's. It inflates the market and makes teams sign guys to contracts that are completely unnecessary. Do that to a team and the rest of the GM's could very well give you a massive "f*** You" when you come calling for a trade...


Well, actually, that's the whole point behind RFAs. You will only get a massive 'f*** You' from a GM if you send an offer sheet to someone and strongly overpay for them (ala Ryan Kesler), but if it was in the case of a Thomas Vanek or a Ray Emery, then it's fair game to send an offer sheet their way.
