Were there any explanations for the other three stupid contracts he signed players to?

Johnston is younger, tougher, probably faster ,cheaper, and actually managed to score some goals. He was not the train wreck most thought he would be. No need to add Martin.

At least the PP was pretty good and he has a connection to Lou. What has Thompson done?

PP was pretty good? More like a Chinese fire drill zero structure like everything else. Thompson hopefully will be shat canned shortly. If he stays to me it’s a bad sign.

I’m over Tavares. The two things I’m still not over are Doug Weight and Garth Snow. Their names should be abolished from this thread. (frank)ing inept arseholes. Any connection to those two should be eliminated from this team.

I get having to keep Garth on because of a huge penalty if he is fired, but after Malkin messed up the JT situation maybe he should fire Garth and pay the price?

I do not get why Doug was not fired as I doubt he has this golden parachute deal.

Penalty? Yeah I doubt that’s the case they just have to pay him his contract.

I don't mind having Doug around to sell the town, neighborhoods, schools, etc. I just don't want him coaching. He is a nice guy and I can understand why they are keeping him around.

Garth has always been a jerk to everyone. He should be gone.

I doubted it to, but then I looked into it. It's common to have a no fault clause in high end contracts to prevent new management from cleaning house.

Meh still don’t believe it. Also, there’s no reason for him to be on camera or in any kind of spotlight aka the draft. I’m sure there’s not some clause in said contract orchestrating that to happen. Snow is there because he’s wanted there. How anyone can say otherwise is beyond me especially since the guy is living, breathing, bad press and despised by 99.9% of the fan base. If he wasn’t he wouldn’t be there no matter what that contract states he would be the Barclays janitor. The contract allowed his demotion out of his role that tells me all I need to know. You and I both know he would’ve never allowed his demotion if the contract didn’t permit it.

I have no idea what the details of Snow's contract are. However it is common practice to have a "no fault termination" clause in high level contracts. Given that Wang is a total nut job I have no trouble believing that Snow will get a lot more money if they fire him. On the other side Snow has to be a good boy and do what he's told. He can't give them any excuse to fire him for cause and lose all the money.

Being a good boy should be mopping the floors in the basement.

So being a worthless piece of crap as a GM and not having any success isn't enough cause?

So just a little fun fact. It appears that without the Leafs trolls (and us), BD's post #'s have dropped significantly.
Only 12 posts. And 2 of those are his!

I’m shocked he acts like he’s so good. I would figure all hockey fans would be flocking to his blogs.
