If the Leafs were a Big Mac, they'd be no beef - just tomatoes, lettuce, and some rancid sauce.

Still, the AC Centre will be filled, we will grumble but still watch the games... and cycle will continue. Then they'll build a team to make it to the semi-finals ('93) and dismantle it, and start all over again.

Biggest problems :

(1)Trading their #1 & #2 draft picks over the years, have not helped the cause. Tom Kurvers for a #1 (Scott Nd'mer, #1 to Islanders (Roberto L'go), Owen Nolan (Brad Boyes plus a #1).

(2)The ability of scouting system to assess talent.

(3) Overpaying players for what they did in the past for other teams or to much for what they did for you.

(4) allowed Mats to be KING for to long.

(5) best collection of 3rd & 4th line players in the NHL.

SEE YOU IN 5 YEARS!

Fletcher is handling things very well. The Leafs have a very credible defence corp. This will allow Toskela to maintain his sanity, and Wilson the tools to teach his young team a defensive system of play. I don't think fans expect a lot from the Leafs this year. They will likely be in position for a lottery pick next spring, and that will be good for this team as it rebuilds.

Laffing Out Loud...

FYI.

Having seen the Habs many times last year, and catching a couple of Bulldog games, I thought Grabovski had talent but was too small to stick with the Habs.

Toronto got him for what a second rounder? Grabovski might help the scoring a bit because he is creative and has a touch.

While Gainey did not have the wool pulled over his eyes on this one - the leafs are in a desperate position for some type of offence right now. They aren't exactly loaded with offensive talent.

For Leafs fans, the rebuilding the team needs has finally started.

What is going to be really painful to watch on some nights, should eventually turn around. But not for a couple of years at best.

If Fletcher and his successor stay the course the buds will become a good team through drafting and development.

This is the way to go - just look at the Habs under Bob Gainey.

I think all the really young guys shouldn't have to experience this season, they should play for the marlies...I say Cujo plays most of the games then we can have a better shot at the 1st overall pick..

Well if they stay the course with the young players and not over pay for some older has beens than they might find something special in a couple of years, maybe sooner. But if they go back to the same old same nothing will change, you can not buy a CHAMPIONSHIP (Stanley Cup)!

Cheers, Mike and Go Leafs Go!!!!

What is this magical hold that Ponikarovsky has over the Laffs? He can't score, he refuses to hit and he isn't a great backchecker. It must be the same magical grip that JFJ used for 3 1/2 yrs. Laffs parted with 7 draft choices to assemble this crew. Putting aside the 2 draft picks for Schenn, I question giving up all the others including the picks for Grabovsky. Time will tell but from the get go I can't see Gainey being outsmarted on this one. I still blame Laffs mgt types Morrisson and Mike Penny for not being able to properly assess hockey talent. I said Finger was a weakling and would be on the shelf by Christmas. The guy gets injured in training camp for crying out loud!

Nowhere to go but down.

I like Kulemin, Grabovsky, Hagman and Tlusty. Let Steen play centre with some guys who can skate and see if he is as good as he was supposed to be before we messed him up playing the wing.

And find a spot for Colaiacovo!
