I've already booked my hotel in Ottawa. Can't wait to see a cup parade in person finally.

So eerily similar to the things Burke said. "It's a statement to our players and fans that we intend to be competitive right away".

Yes and when I told you Burke was a big wind bag who was betraying his commitment to rebuild through the draft you disagreed with me.

I do not see this as anything even remotely close. Right now Ottawa has their franchise player and some very strong supporting talent. I believe they should make a run at the brass ring.

Oh, I still like Burke. I think he was an aggressive GM. He made things happen. Had the Leafs been in a better spot before he got there, he would have been the right GM for the job. He told it like it is, and that pissed people off.

but the Leafs were a bad team, and Kessel was not enough to make them much of a better team. Their supporting talent wasn't enough to get them into a playoff spot.

The Leafs had just come off a season of 81 points. Then traded for Phaneuf to "put them over the hump".

The similarities are staggering.

Hardly, the Leafs traded for Phaneuf wanting him to play #1D and quarterback the power play. The Sens trade for Phaneuf wanting him to play the #4D and kill penalties.

I see the Leaf summer hot air show has been in overdrive all day.

Did you check the standings from the end of the season? Are the Leafs still in last place?

But, Leaf fans are having a very strong summer run. The consensus opinion is that the Leafs are the big summer winners. It is so much better when you get to play without the scoreboard.

- spatso


I would just stop if I were you, we get it. The Leafs have become what you hoped the Sens would.. and now the Sens are turning into what the Leafs were... but you are going all in on this and beating the drum about last place like it matters at this point at all.

Except a lot of people in TO really hated Phaneuf.

I didn't, and still don't. But it's funny how Ottawa fan's views of him have done a 180.

- Feeling Glucky?


I'm not sold on him yet, based on the short amount on time he played for Ottawa ......... will see how things shape up this season. Can't be worse than the players he was traded for, who were not in Ottawa's line up ....... either in the AHL, injured or the press-box.

No, but I do remember when he said Prince was the steal of the draft.

He tends to oversell prospects............. must be something from his time as a leaf fan ............. he'll get over it eventually...

He's not as smart as you d0pps. It's because he's been brainwashed by the Liberals because he didn't wear his tinfoil cap.

Never. Said Pageau was steal of that draft and stand by that comment on 4th round pick. Love Pageau.

19 goals, 24 assists, good penalty kill

probably passed Zibanejad in value to team.

I liked Prince's speed and I thought he had good finish. Would not be surprised to see him have a good career with Islanders.

I don't know who you are so why would I care about your beliefs. Experience shapes belief, and belief conditions feelings. Having beliefs without experience is entirely futile and a little self preoccupied.

You seem like you're feeling pretty angry

Top 10 in scoring. They believe they have improved their power play and puck possession game with the addition of Brassard. D has been improved with the addition of Phaneuf last year.

Dorion believes the team is significantly improved. His opinion matters. But we will see what the scoreboard says when it matters.

And when that fails you can jump to the oilers you (frank)ing idiot

They are the same team... But with an older Zibanejad.


A resounding "meh".
