Yep we wont. I didnt want to lose the guy but I also NEVER wanted to pay him 100 million. He's not that player and I'm becoming more ok with him being gone. The immediate sucks I couldn't be more done with losing but that contract attached to a very good not elite player would've killed us long term. I'm not sure Trotz makes him that elite player? We'll see if Babcock can in all honesty the guy has never had a good NHL coach. In fact he has only had the bottom of the barrel as far as nhl coaches go

It will be very interesting to see. Babcock is a fine coach and I expect he will be able to get Tavares to play a better 2-way game. On the other hand, "a better 2-way game" sets the bar very low.....

Wondering if it would have had a positive effect or not? I dont think he has the foot speed to really alter his game that much without it effecting his scoring...
- Cptmjl

Yup, this is the one thing I would be most concerned about, if I were a Leafs fan.

Hey you weren't to adverse to these guys the other day

Makes you cringe when you think about line combos doesn't it? I stopped after a few mins the other day

- Cptmjl

Not adverse to the deals, not necessarily the guys. You’re right though: when you see it on paper, it’s not very appealing

I didnt think it were possible but Leaf fans have become even more arrogant. For a team that hasn't made it out of the first round in a very long time they sure are (frank)ing egotistical. If there is a God and karma or whatever they will implode.
- Cptmjl

They act like their franchise are the Yankees of hockey when they’re really more like the Indians: been around a while, haven’t won anything in forever.

They won't be last, but as things stand now they will probably be a lottery team.

Yeah, I was thinking it would be another Crosby to the Penguins situation. I forgot the Rangers attendance is all corporate and doesn't depend on success.

He won't let the Isles or Buffalo win. Maybe Colorado or Ottawa.
