Is Ron Wilson right about Sundin?
Thu, September 4, 2008

On one hand, Ron Wilson said he respects Sundin for not rushing back if he is unsure whether or not he wants to play -- adding that he would welcome back the longtime Leafs captain with open arms.

On the other hand, Wilson suggested that one of the problems with the sad-sack Leafs last year was a distinct lack of leadership.

And you don't have to be Howie Meeker to connect the dots there, that leadership is supposed to be one of the major responsibilities of the team captain.

Is Wilson right about the Leafs recent poor form?

Full story: Wilson suggests Mats was part of the problem

DisgruntledFan, you are arguing with repete, not me the original Pete. That being said, get over yourself and offer something tangible. Crosby can't and will never carry Gretzky's jock. End of story, it has nothing to do with the fact you now have more Eastern Europeans playing in the watered down 30 team league full of 18 and 19 year old kids. Whats next, there were not as many Americans playing in the league when Gretz was in his prime. The problem with idiots like you is that in the near future you will be commenting on another site telling all that Canadians are the best hockey players. Well if the League was full of Canadians during Gretzky's glory years would that not make the competition greater.

LEAFS....Try looking at the duo of Mark&Dale Hunter for Coach/GM.

Once again you completely miss the point, and twist what I said.

I never said that Eastern Europeans made up the majority of players in the NHL at any time. We were talking (or at least I was - you were just tossing your "clown" insult) about Gretzky and the fact he scored the majority of his goals when the league didn't have access to USSR and East Block players. They began to trickle into the league when Gretzky was in his 11th and 12th seasons. That's ALL I said.

As for spelling and grammatical errors - there's a huge difference between those and typos. And while I do make the odd typo, I at least know the difference between their, there and they're, not to mention then and than and your and you're. You don't.

Oh, and by the way, you mentioned Ivan Boldirev as one of your examples. Well, old Ivan came to Canada when he was 16 and played for the S-S Marie Greyhounds in his first year of junior - from Yugoslavia. Don't ever think Yugoslavia was under the thumb of the Soviets. Tito ran that country independently of the Soviets and the people were free to move about the world long before the Soviets and Czechs.

Disgruntled clown fan, you have missed the point and most likely the boat. The Eastern Europeans don't make up the majority of the league now or then...so what is your point. Oh and by the way I'm not the Pete who stated Oilers all the way next year. Here is a prediction for ya, Detroit in five, probably four but the league will do what they can to spread things out and give their boy Syd a little sumpin. Oh and if you can read go back and read a few threads, superbowl, World championship etc. and read my predictions. Now, if you have something relevant to say then say it, Otherwise, bite me.

disgruntled clown

My god !...What's has become of this site!!.Seems like every second "comment" is total,useless trash,mostly coming from the same garbage disposal.What's the use for all this nonsense?..Where's the so called "moderator"?This probably won't get posted,but since an honest opinion seems to result in being called every name in the book,other then four letter words ,who really cares!!

Well I for one give up trying to reason with the idiot. He even says "The majority of the foreign players in the league at the time in question were from the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc countries."

He completely missed the point. They were NOT in the majority at the "time in question" which was when Gtetzky was coring the bulk of his goals. I laid it out quite carefully for him. But I guess something squirted in his eyes down there in the basement.

He accuses everyone in here of shying away from predictions - or else making obvious ones - but have you ever seen him make a definitive statement. Other than "Oilers all the way" next year. THAT demonstrates just how ill-informed he is.
DisgruntledFan, 2008-05-25 15:28:25

Give it up, Pete. Arguing with people on a message board all day long everyday says all we need to know about you. Your mommy would remove the computer from the basement if she knew what you were doing down there.
Pete's Social Worker, 2008-05-24 12:54:15

Wayne, St-collisse, Digruntled Fag, Tab Ernak, RJ. I'm surprised that none of you hockey experts has enlightened us with one of your cerebral predictions. Whats the next one, something like, Detroit or Pittsburg will tonight and either Stall, Zetterburg, Crosby, Malking or Datsyuk will get a goal and maybe Osgoode or Fleury will make some saves. You are almost that pathetic.
Pete, 2008-05-23 15:06:23

Disgruntled "Suicidal" Fan, It is semantics,as once again your an idiot. The majority of the foreign players in the league at the time in question were from the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc countries. So what the puck is your point, other than to prove that your an idiot who loves Sydney to a point that it's concerning.
