Seems like the Leaves have some very influential friends:

Sounds similar to the Laughs when they have to have 2 defenders making league minimum so they can pay for pajama boy and the porn star.

from article
People have been justifiably critical of the Toronto Maple Leaves’ grand roster building strategy ever since Lou Lamoriello left.
:lol: So now only horrible as opposed to really horrible. Gooooood.

How hilarious is this if he's traded? And the big 4 are going nowhere on the Leaves.

Can someone explain why Canucks have no cap without seeing the playoffs first and Pettersen not signed?

Dubas spends his money on stars. Benning overpaid supporting talent in UFA.
Tuna just jinxed his team.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

And your group of 6 defenders include AHL players.

there is a great saying about he who lives in a glass house should never throw stones, you need to live by that motto.

Didn’t his stars get beat by their own zamboni driver??

With all the Covid driven stuff going on I was beginning to think we’d seen the height and depth of human stupidity.


Then the NHL started back up and Tuna returned to CC.

TORONTO – The NHL said today that choosing Toronto as one of its two playoff hub cities was a “no brainer” due to Leaves’ fans long experience watching other visiting teams celebrate playoff victories on their ice.

“Even though there won’t be fans in the stands, we feel the cities we play in will still create an important atmosphere for our players,” said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. “And given Toronto’s long history of being a place where teams other than the Leaves win playoff games, this felt like the right call.”

“The Boston Bruins in particular should feel right at home given they legally own the Leaves,” he added.

Players from around the league said they were particularly comfortable playing in Toronto, since an entire game with no crowd will just feel exactly like the first 5 minutes of each period in a normal Leaves game, when most of the lower bowl is off drinking and eating sushi in the Air Canada Club.

Leaves fans said they welcomed the news.

“It’ll be really exciting for the first few days until the Leaves lose in round 1 like normal. Then I imagine having another month of NHL playoffs in Toronto will be even more demoralizing than normal,” said Gary Desmond of Milton.
