What are your thoughts on how the Leafs' roster is shaping up? Who should stay and who should go before the trade deadline? Have your say in our forum.
Pogge gets little support from Leafs
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.

(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!

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.

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.
