That's incredibly depressing even if you're not a Leafs fan.

maybe he is just awkward and not comfortable in social situations.

That might be what made me feel a bit sorry for him - I'm also awkward and not comfortable in social situations...

Most people are, but won't admit to it.

I used to be, but once I realized that it's mostly a perception that you exaggerate about yourself, it's easy to move beyond it.

Oh absolutely, it's the avoidance of discomfort that's worse than the discomfort itself. Once I get rollin' I'm a (frank)ing joy to be around.

Hope? You're a long long long way from having anything that constitutes meaningful hope. You can hope your over priced roster of underachieving, overpaid losers can barely outperform a team $15m under the cap.

For those who follow such things, Phil Kessel was very good with the media for All-Star weekend; did his share and had fun with it

PPP is a better outlet than 100% of the "legitimate" media sources that cover the Leafs.

Not a whole lot of difference between Richards contract and Clarksons'.


Richards was shopped around, with no takers, waived with no takers and he's a few years younger too.

Thought Richards was a little younger. L.A. could have used a "compliance buyout" last summer, but did not. What about the leafs? Did they use all their compliance buyouts?

Leaf compliance buyouts all used

Compliance buyouts ended this past summer, last time they could be used

No compliance buyouts were able to be used on those players signed after the lockout ended.

So if Richards role on a team, that has won two of the last three Stanley Cups, was deemed not cap friendly, could the same be said of Clarkson?

The Kings are looking ahead to players they need to re-sign in the next couple of seasons and need all the cap space they can get.


There are some parallels with the leafs, if they decide to reboot, rebuild, blow up or retool, and need to free up cap space.

In the off season, there might be some takers for Richards for a team that needs to get to the Cap floor, as his Cap hit is high, but his actual annual salary declines over the life of the contract starting next season.

Just wondering what you think might be happening, or what you think they should do.

Ride out the season, and wait for the draft to do anything?
