Are the Leafs pulling off good moves?
Mon, November 24, 2008

The Maple Leafs have traded Carlo Colaicovo and Alex Steen to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for forward Lee Stempniak.

Stempniak, 25, a native of West Seneca, N.Y., scored 27 goals two seasons ago.

This season, he has three goals and 10 assists through 14 games.

Is this a good move for the Leafs? Have your say in our forum.

Wilson's hiring (or soon to be) is basically telling Leaf Nation that Brian Burke will soon follow suit. Either after July 1st (free agent season) or next year. Ron Wilson WILL NOT BE FIRED if he comes here, All though he may want too be considering what he has too work with on the Leafs Current Roster!
Hey, 2008-06-03 10:10:52

Well, CFMJ (640 Toronto) is reporting that Ron Wilson is the new coach of the Maple Leafs.

It seems sort of backwards to hire a coach first, but they probably just signed him for one year and will let a new GM decide whether to keep Wilson after a year or not.

At least he's a decent, qualified coach who has had some success. I really don't know much about his style except that San Jose always did very well during the regular season, but choked in the playoffs.

I can't disagree with that gordholio. Except to say that they seem to have this penchant for walking around with two feet planted firmly in their mouths.

First Fletcher says he wouldn't be firing Maurice. Then he does a turnabout, and justifies it by saying it's only fair to Maurice to give him more time to find a new job since any new GM coming in will likely want to hire his own coach.

Now it's reported they are looking at Ron Wilson as the next coach even before they decide on a GM! So, in effect, if whoever comes in as the next GM doesn't like Wilson for whatever reason, he winds up firing the guy brought in by the interim management "team" and paying him for the balance of whatever contract he signs!

Talk about circling the wagons and firing inwards.

The Maple Leafs will be criticized no matter what they do. Just let the people do their work.

It's really comical, the Maple Laffs even screw this up. Then again, it is the entertainment industry and they are entertaining, just for the wrong reasons. I'm actually starting to feel sorry for their fans. Ooops, then again in about two months time they will find some reason to think that they will be Stanley Cup contenders. Funny thing is they'll be serious. Thats why it's so fun to hate the laffs and their fans. They're easy picken.

The Leafs are a joke. When they eventually resort to plan D, or E, or F and hire someone, they will still suck for another 40 years.
Dave, 2008-05-30 09:12:06

They should wait till August when all the good remaining candidates are snatched up and then use it as an excuse as to why they will suck again next year and the year after that and so on and so on lol

Good job this search committee is doing, by the time they finally target someone they will be gone.

Still have to laugh at this organization having to form a search committee to find a gm, thats too frigging funny lol.

Have to also say what a top notch this search committee is, Kirke a sports lawyer ( no front office experience running an NHL team ) and Peddie he Buttinski lmao, a business man again no hockey knowledge and the 1 man that has tons of experience Fletcher is on the outside looking in lmao. Is it really a wonder why this organization is such a mess, they cant do anything right lol.

A hockey fan...I ran a tub of water for you and placed a waffle iron beside the tub and plugged it in....be careful what you ask for you may just get it!

If you hate the Leafs so much why get your panties in a knot over them? Oh and if you think "Eddie" was a good movie you have no taste what so ever and your judgement of ANYTHING is really tainted.

ps...whats a cospect?????

GO LEAFS GO!

That idea would work actually but too many people will complain about it.

That idea remains me of the game Blitz the League. ((Don't really care for the game though... Too easy for me
