Some players may be under performing, but do you really think the Leaf lineup has huge holes? if so where? (dont just state the obvious defense issues, we know that. On paper, the likes of Kubina, Gil, Kaberle etc are good no?)

Pucks, I thought you were making progress a couple of days ago. What does on paper mean? Their contract? No their contracts are as ugly as their defensive play. How many times have these clowns missed the playoffs the last 5 yrears?

There holes are so huge you could fly Red Bird One clean through them.
I would dump the entire team with the exception of...Wellwood, Blake, Bell, Antropov and of course Wrongway Foyt.

why though, you still have not addressed the question.

When was the last time they made the playoffs? Thats the answer to the question. None of their d-men are shut down players which makes those with offense weaker.
They have two mediocre(at best) goalies. They have no leadership, there offense is sinking fast. What do they have that other teams would want?
Sundin would be a good addition to a team which has a great Canadian leader. Tucker the dumbest player in the NHL, might be interesting to a team also with good leadership. The guy can play but he needs to be controlled.

Its time to clean house.

It starts with upper management. This franchise is such a mess they can't get a good hockey man to go there. How many have they tried to get without success. Why would anyone want to go there as long as the motivation is the profit line and not winning?

Gee I must have missed all those Cups Quinn won. They were mostly mediocre teams which seems to be all that leafs Stagnation aspires to.

He only had himself to blame but you know how some people are...never can accept responsibility. Burke falls into that category lol

Agreed jokester. I think Burke is good as GM but that which he blames Lowe of , is he not guilty of for the signing of Burtuzzi alone?

Did the Leafs win the Stanly Cup last night?

Yes they are. But their fans are realistic. Remember also all of those teams you just mentioned have at least made Cup appearances since 67.

"Winning isn't's the ONLY thing".
Why compete if not to win?
That quote does not only reflect wins and loses.
It' speaks more about developing an atmosphere of winning. A winning organization. I think there are several in the NHL currently. Detroit, Anaheim, New Jersey, Colorado, Carolina. Over the last ten years these have been the organizations which have adopted a winning attitude in all facets of their organization.

Sorry but the Leafs just don't measure up! Thats why they are ranked as the 13th best franchise in hockey.
Very mediocre.

It was a Hockey News (The bible) ranking.
These are the criteria.

1. Playoff performance: Last 5 years
2. Regular-season finish: Last 5 years.
3. This season:
4. Ownership:
5. Draft: Teams earn one point for every player drafted from 1999-2003 who has become an NHL regular.
6. Future watch: THN's ranking of the quality of each team's talent pool under the age of 22.
7. Front-office stability: Any team that has changed coaches and general managers more than a combined seven times in five years gets a zero.
8. Franchise value: Uses the annual Forbes magazine figures. Score: 4.
9. Attendance: Score given by percentage of capacity.

The overall rankings are as follows:
1, Detroit; 2, Ottawa; 3, Colorado; 4, San Jose; 5, Minnesota;
6, Dallas and Philadelphia; 8, Anaheim; 9, Montreal; 10, Tampa Bay; 11, Toronto; 12, New Jersey; 13, Carolina; 14, Buffalo; 15, Edmonton; 16, New York Rangers; 17, Vancouver; 18, Los Angeles; 19, Calgary; 20, St. Louis; 21, Nashville; 22, Boston and New York Islanders; 24, Columbus; 25, Chicago; 26, Washington and Pittsburgh; 28, Atlanta; 29, Phoenix; 30, Florida

oopse sorry Leafs 11th. Considering they play in the largest hockey market in the world this should be unacceptable to the fans.

Kaos, what do people usually do with all the egg they get on their face when they keep saying a players lousy and washed up and over the hill and his swedish counterparts lobby Holland to swing a deal for him? Not saying that's happenning but it's been steady for a couple of days now on the rumour mill that Sundin's heading to Hockeytown

Not quite sure what you are talking about.
This is the first I have heard of Sundin to Detroit it's not in the Detroit papers.
I hope not we don't need another Swede.

That linc seemed to be to someones blog.
The story has not appeared in the Detroit Free Press. Just wishful thinking out of Toronto. Leafs will finish middle of the pact with or without Sundin. Trade the bum to a team with proper Canadian leadership and let him win a Cup

As for the Leafs winning...terrific but last nights win over the Rangers was the only win in this streak against a team in a playoff spot.
If anything it keeps the Gong Show of Leaf Nation rolling.
Engrave the Cup Leafs have won four in arow!
