BD's site is filled with Leaf fans, giving everyone the finger, talking about how bad Isles' ownership/management is for losing Tavares to Toronto for nothing. Like tell us something we don't know....

Rubbing it in like that, however, from a fanbase whose franchise hasn't won a Cup in more than half a century is unnecessarily rubbing salt in the wound. My hatred for Leafs began in the 2002 playoffs when they seriously injured two of our best players (Jonsson and Peca). I got over that after a while, but this is starting it up anew. They have just replaced the Penguins and, yes, maybe even the Rangers, as my most hated team.

I saw that John. No question Isles ownership has the biggest fault. Still have no interest hearing from Leaf fans and getting into it with them. I have family from Toronot and they better not be the ones rubbing it in. Pens fans at least can say their team has won recently.

This is why the forums are great no trolls and if the bolts get Karlsson then good luck loafs

Oh ek this is called a contradiction

And while it may take a little more time, Lou will land a goalie before the season begins...

...and they are also in on Karlsson.....some say they are looking at Karlsson and Bobby Ryan possibly...

What do you think they should do?

Karlsson to Tampa?

Looking VERY strong...

None of those guys are getting banned like we were.

The Rangers will always be my most hated team, but the Leafs are now a very close second.

I've never liked the Leafs or their fans way before we played them in the playoffs last time and way before this site existed. They are an easy team to hate you would think they already won the cup that's why it'll be incredible if tavares and his new team stumble out of the gate and the press attacks them and they fall further from there. I actually think it's a very good possibility I'm hoping beyond hope.

I can't believe you are engaging those trolls on BD's page. I took a quick look and wanted nothing to do with it.

That series was horrible. The officiating was so bad.

I have no reason to believe they won't be good. It will be fun to watch when JT has one of his slumps. They will be going nuts.

That's the possibility I'm talking about. He doesn't come out of the gates strong then the pile on starts and disrupts the whole team. Dont ruin my dream scenario

I can see it happening may not who knows but if it does it'll be (frank)ing sweet.

Would be great if he could make the job next year. Might have to move on from Sorokin. Hopefully Soderstrom plays well this year for Bridge.

I wonder if they named Ladd captain, if he would ramp up his game a bit. Sometimes that extra responsibility one feels makes a difference.....

And not sure, who else they'd look to? Boychuk?

Still rather have Lee but it could be tough if he is not signed long term. Ladd was captain on the Jets.

Looking at it from the outside and our perspective in other words not being in the "room" I would think boychuk looks like a good candidate. I dont think a player that needs motivation should be a captain especially if the motivating factor is becoming captain.

Boychuk’s a good choice.
Ladd should be captain of the restroom.

Thanks upstate! Lou is a big fan of Leo. You do feel a little better when the GM speaks and is not in the witness protection program.
