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

Just another entry into the Peddie files.

This is the classic example of corporate greed.

Leafs Nation can complain all they want. BUT...until they stop giving MLSE their money NOTHING will change. There is no motivation to change this frachise for the better until they stop being overly profitable (i.e, sell out after sell out, merchandise, etc...). Also, MLSE has one of the worst reputations in the league in terms of how they treat people. Why would anyone of any crediablity and sound mind want to get involved with this mess? It will be very interesting to see what will happen.

Mickey Mouse says it all. until MLSE management and the bottom line only get their hands off the team and let hockey people run the team. MSLE has nothing to lose, Laugh Nation will keep filling the seats and buying the jerseys. Win win all around, bottom line get the cash, fand might get a good team in a few years once the no trade clause seniors are gone

Fire the players!! Overpaid!! After years of watching the terrible Leafs, it is so difficult watching these so called players try to play the game of hockey.A Leaf tradition down the drain. Priceless.The Teacher's Pension committee has ruined this team. I agree with Sittle and Dougy!

Easy Sittler as coach .. Doug Gilmour as GM.. These guy's played and were winners .. Look at Larry Robinson and Jacques Lemaire they were very successful... Also don't allow the "bottom line" oriented upper management people to be involved in the hockey operations ...

Stajan said the players didn`t quit on the coach, well how rotten were they and still are as hockey players. Who in his right mind would want to coach them? A FOOL.

All I know is I hope and pray Coach Maurice wins a Cup wherever he may end up. He is "NOT" a bad coach and the super nova that is the Maple leafs nation by and large know this.
Dennis, 2008-05-08 14:39:29

Or why don't they get a different member of the teacher's union to take turns coaching every game? If they want to tamper so badly that the GM/coach are impotent to put a good product on the ice, well let them put it on the line then. A few days of that and then maybe they'd let the guys running the team actually run it. Coaching the leafs has got to be overseeing lunchtime detention for 20000 remedial ed students on crack and suffering from ADD. Apologies to the remedial ed students...

Sorry to see Maurice go, but expected it. Problem with the Leafs is in the board room. These guys may be good business men but are stupid as a sports franchise owner.

Steve Simmons would be the best coach. He always knows what to do!
