I dont see it as MUST win NOW mode, they should take a shot and use the cap space while they have it...since you dont get a refund on the unused part and they are not the cheapo Sens budget team

you like to take some words and push them to the extreme to try and make a point or paint someone in a corner..its dumb

- senstroll


Somehow, the Leafs have the greatest rookie influx in NHL history and the Sens fans are trying like hell to turn it into something negative, so they don't cry themselves to sleep every night.

yeah, I am soooo jealous of that 28th pick they "won".

Then they take hope from our ONE bad contract, that is only dicey in yr. 3 while managing to forget their own stable of overpaid, past their prime players.

So with toronto's 2 year "MUST win NOW mode" window ........... do they have the required goal tending to actually take a run at the Cup for the next two seasons ?
- D0PPELGANGER


Oh this is your best yet...

Now our goaltending is the problem?

Gee, would you rather have a 27 year old with a bright future signed at an affordable 4 more years, or an on-again-off-again 36 year old starter, signed for one more year.

Speaking of win-now mode... Unfortunately, your "Win-Now" was last season when you faced AHL defensemen in the playoffs.

Yeah, you are doing an excellent job of bringing up the Leafs "problems".

leafs are in "MUST Win now" mode ........ they have two years, until they have to re-sign Matthews to his second contract.

Their window is open for two seasons, then ....................

- D0PPELGANGER



This makes no sense....what happens? Matthews vanishes? He turns into Turris? What!?

Leafs are so good and so young they can never win. But our old guys will only get better next year!

like saying the Sens are a cheapo budget team?

There are currently about ten teams with more cap space than the Sens

I know high standards isn't the Sens forte but taking pride on being eleventh from last is kinda sad.

Wrong again, Spazzo. It's pretty clear that the only one who hasn't watched any actual gameplay is you. 'Cause if you had, you'd know that Brown was mediocre at best this year, playoffs, and Memorial cup.

You are still trying to suck and blow at same time.

In the end, it comes down to the actual hard result.

Sens won!

Kevin Shattenkirk could’ve gotten more money but took less to join the New York Rangers.

Joe Thornton could’ve gotten a multi-year deal from someone but wanted to stay with the San Jose Sharks.

Brian Campbell and Patrick Sharp could’ve gotten more money the past two summers but took the Chicago discount to return the Blackhawks.

The Senators wanted to expose Phaneuf to the expansion draft but lost Methot instead.

Just becuase the sens tried to dump Dion in the expansion draft and tried to trade him a million times doesn't mean they didn't want to keep him.

Yes, but that's because the Leafs dumped the high cap hit from Phaneuf on the Sens, even though his actual salary is lower. This is probably true for other players as well.


People like you are why the Leafs will be able to dump Marleau on the Sens, if he's not productive in his 3rd year. Melnyk can pretend not to be cheap because some idiots will just look at the cap number and convince themselves that the owner cares about winning.

Yeah, the Leafs have too much talent!

Amazing how you guys are struggling so much with reality that you need to twist high-end talent into a negative.

It must be WAY better to have 20+ million of dead contracts you need to get rid of before you sign your ONE star player.

- Aetherial



Sens had a hugely successful year. Regular season and playoffs went exceptionally well. Now, they are moving out some older players for the coming year and adding some highly talented rookies that had great years last year.

Leafs on the other hand are bringing in a group of guys that will be pushing age 40 by the end of their short term deals.

Sens have 4 top prospects on the TSN top 50 prospect list. Leafs have 0.

Phaneuf had a magnificent playoff. Especially in the first round against the Bruins. Sens would not have succeeded without Phaneuf in their line up.

Leafs struggled against the Caps. They were especially weak on defence.

If Phaneuf had been in the Leaf line up they would have been able to compete harder against the Caps.

You would think with the Sens getting half way to winning a Stanley cup that free agents would be knocking down Dorion’s door to get a chance to play with a true contender.

Who’d the sens sign again?
