Pogge gets little support from Leafs
No one outside of T.O. is surprised. Its a reflection on the mentality of the fans and Torontonians - not MLSE, they're just like the oil companies.

option 2 would be a blockbuster with Buf. Send Toskala, Kaberle and Blake for Adam Dennis, T.J.Brennan, Dylan Hunter and Zagrapan.
Then send Kubina and Antropov to Vcr. i would ask for Raymond and Yann Sauve in return.
After that, get all the draft picks you can for anybody else that can be moved out (x-cept Schenn)
Then get Legace on waivers, prompt Pogge, retire/trade Joseph and TANK TANK TANK
BTW - That Stempniak trade really sucked

Now if Burke can get something equivalent to what was given up to acquire Toskala or Finger, let them go.
Finger is a special case. He fooled me because given that he is such a weakling I thought he would be injured by now. But he has the Inge Hammastrom technique down to a science. He can go into the corner with a pocket full of eggs and not break one of them. But I aks you "how effective can a defenseman be if his patented move is a poke check?" I mean come on, this is worth $3.5M?

If it was a trade for either Carlo or Steen, fair enough. Bit two players who were first round draft picks for Stempniak? This is trulyrebuilding Leafs style.

Same with Antropov, when he was "belittled". After that, he started playing well again.
There is method in Burke's and Wilson's madness. They know how psychology works - they've been around the block.
Burke did NOT diminish Antropov's trade value; in fact, Antropov responded positively and his value has gone up quite a bit lately.
Ron Wilson jokes around at times. It's not his job to be smiling; it's his job to be a good coach who gets the most out of his players and demands hard work and effort!
