Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I am not trying to down your opinions on Toronto. I know Toronto not the best team but i'm sick and tired of you guy's downing Toronto I don't here you downing LA or Tampa Bay.
Listen I live in LA and I'm a kings fan but I also love Toronto and if you are going to down a team down LA or Tampa. I mean Toronto has 48 points when the Kings have 43 and TB has 45 so start downing those to teams in stead of Toronto.
Come on Toronto I know Toronto has no future coming up like the Kings and TB do but stop BSing the Toronto Maple Leafs!
you ask why people shouldn't be downing TB or LA the same way they are downing the leafs...hmmm...lets see, maybe because no one gives a rats @ss about those teams. The leafs are the biggest, most valuable franchise in the NHL. They spent the most money in the league this year on their Defense, and have the 4th most goal against. The reason the leafs deserve to be spat on is becuase millions of devoted fans r putting major time and money into the franchsie, for what, to see them constantly lose. The LA and TB fans (no offense to these fans) as a whole, do not put in 1 tenth the amount of money as leaf fans as a whole do. I cant believe I am saying this, but even leaf fans (i am not one by the way lol) deserve better. Until they recieve better, the magagement and franchise should continue to be ridiculed by the fans.

Leafs are the marquee team in Canada. Even though they are the worst.
They are probably many years away from being a Cup final contender, but should they make it...EVEN IF THEY LOSE, it would make a LOT of people happy. There would STILL be a parade.
Now, imagine if they actually WIN. I don't care how much you love your team, be it whatever sport. There would be NOTHING to compare the ELATION and OVERPOWERING EMOTION that Leaf fans will feel. NOTHING!
I hope to see it happen one time in my life...god willing.
every leaf game sells out every nite, even though the tickets are way over priced. leafs have more fans than any other nhl team, and those fans are way crazier about their team than any other fans. if the leafs won the stanley cup, the people of toronto would become the happiest people anywhere.
and somehow despite all this, Leafs managment manages to put together a shi@#ier team year after year. i hope they trade away all good players, and dump all the salary they can. blow the season, grab a good draft spot next year, and rebuild, like a smart team (eg. flyers, who are possibly 5 million times better than they were last year).
realistically, they will struggle to make playoffs, but not make it. wait for the offseason to make a move, and when the time comes, trade something they cant afford to lose for an unproven or over the hill player.
I love the leafs... I wish they were doing better this year but.. Ferggie is out.... maybe next year.
GO LEAFS GO!!
True fans support their team... even when they are doing bad.
I think a lot of people who hate the leafs really hate the fact that leaf fans invade their arena's and take over... :-)
What do you think they should do as far as trades this year?
Toronto is the richest team in the league and should be one of the best but they consistently scrape cruddy teams together and NEVER have good youth coming up. They used to do OK by spending money on UFA's but can't anymore so they stink. Take out OTL points from their stats and they are in last place. The best Toronto developed players (since Wendel Clark) are Felix Potvin and Thomas Kaberle then... Steen? Stajan? pitiful drafting record.
The one year they had three 1st round picks they chose 3 guys from Belleville who barely got a sniff in the NHL.
Their last Stanley Cup was 41 years ago when there were only 6 teams in the league. How many reasons do you need to dump on Toronto? I''m just getting warmed up...

I live in LA too and I like the Kings but I hate that this is the only LA team that hasn't won a championship and no the Clippers don't count. I really love our future and I hope we can get Stamkos and Taveras but I know it probably take a miracle to get both of them on the team the nex 2 yrs.
