What should the Leafs do?
Tue, January 8, 2008

The Maple Leafs felt like throwing a hockey stick through the television following last night's 3-2 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, preferably at the big HD screen at National Hockey League headquarters in Toronto.

But angry Nik Antropov took the team's anger at a costly overtime penalty and three video replay reversals the hardest, hurling his stick towards referees Mike Leggo and Don Koharski after Rod Brind'Amour netted the game-winner.

Forget about throwing hockey sticks. What about throwing in the towel on the season? What should the Leafs do before the trade deadline? Have your say in our forum.

Hey Bob, ever been to a game at ScotiaBank Place when the Leafs are in town? Probably not, or else you'd know that there are thousands of Leaf fans in this area. You ASSUME I am a Sens fan because I live here. That proves your own affinity for frothing at the mouth without any proof. I know what the poll said. Can you definitively say that the majority of those who responded with "yes" to that question did so in the belief that they were answering a stupid question with an obvious answer? How many did so believing that's what they could get? Of course, judging by your snarky comments you believe yourself to be the only one with any knowledge of the game in here. Until now, I have never thrown an insult at anyone else - just offered my opinion. And that's what it all boils down to. Differences of opinion.

How things change. I remember when Nik was new on the team and I was so impressed I told my son I thought he would be Toronto's next captain. I admit that I would have traded him for just about anything the last few years. Injuries absolutely devastated this player's development. He is finally becoming the player Mike Smith thought he was drafting.I don't think, Mr O'leary, there is any debate about whether he is worth his current contract. You seem like an intelligent sort but you say some stupid things.The poll you mention, which I participated in, asked if Leafs should trade Raycroft for a first round pick. Of course most people said yes. I think we all agree we won't see that kind of offer but that's not what was asked. Why an Ottawa fan is so in love with the Leaf blogs is beyond me. Stick to the Ottawa blogs, your endless blather is so predictable.

I guess I have to eat crow over Antropov. Last year and for the last several years, I've been saying to trade him for anything.

He's really surprised me and has really improved his game. He's smarter now and has kept himself out of harm's way as far as serious injuries go.

He is hard to move off the puck and makes intelligent plays nowadays.

I have been a Leaf fan for over 70 years but the last 2 games have finally done it.

I don't blame Toskala but why does he stop the difficult ones but let the soft ones in?

Get rid of Ponikarovsky!!!

He is more cause for alarm for the Leafs than the opposition.

Enough said, they can't possibly get worse or can they???

Well listen Chris. I did not say much about Raycoft(alltho hes terrible, how do you like that)and neither did MR. O'Leary BUD.

I do feel badly for McCabe. He was playing better. (Meaning he hasn't scored on his own goal lately nor has he crashed into his net) But he still has no clue. What a cementhead.

How about Maurice's crying act? He has really stepped it up lately. He must have been watching the videos of Pat Quinn's crying game.

what is it with the Leafs? The crying and the belly-aching is getting pretty old don't ya think?

Bunch of babies....haha ....don't ya love it when they put the camera on Tucker sitting on the bench and he's just-a-howling at the moon. Hey Tucks nobody cares. I think there's a little poop left in your diaper.


Goober, 2007-12-20 12:38:38

Oh yea Goober, Mccabe plays better defence that last month like u people wanted him too, and u still slam him when now has a broken hand. Well if he was so bad than what happened against carloina last game????? Same old leafs, and you cant blame him! He is ther best defenceman and the leafs will lose more with him out (at least 7 of the nxt 10 games, incl. the canes loss). I called it!
MCabe's biggest fan, 2007-12-20 09:29:14

If you check back, Chris, you'll find that the topic of this thread has changed about as often as McCabe coughs up the puck. So mentioning Raycroft after throwing in my 2 cents worth on Antropov is fair ball.
George O'Leary, 2007-12-19 18:34:04

Good one. Calling him a Plug is being polite. Are they going to miss McCabe?

I'll miss him. Brings a few laffs to each game. Oh well we still got Tucker to make fun of.

As we all know McCabe is over-rated and overpaid. Replace him with a monkey and the Leafs are better off.
Goober, 2007-12-18 18:35:34

I would just like to remind Mr. O'Leary and other that this forum is about Antropov, not Raycroft, the Lightning, etc. Thanks.
