We sure that was Grabovski?  lol, sounded like here was a little French accent in there.  Pardon my French

I love your passion, Grabovski.  All the best kid

Not really feeling sorry for Grabo, it was business not personal.  Even when playing to his potential he wasn't worth 5.5 mil a year.  With a lower cap it had to be done, I have a feeling that today the leafs sign Sceduri and another forward just hope they don't over pay.  But a big trade is happing soon for a center I believe with a couple a defenseman becoming available with Sceduri coming in (well if he comes in)

I wonder if maybe Nonis isn't planning on bringing in another C, and will go with Kadri & Colborne on the offensive lines and Bolland & McClement for the defensive lines.  Can't see Colborne as ready yet, but being thrown into the fire is certainly one way to learn

Steve Simmons should print a retraction regarding phil Kessel

Here's a noodle scratcher, do we see the Leafs trade Reimer?  That trade for Bernier is still not sitting right with me.

@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs You want a player to be pissed in this situation.  He's not thinking about the money he just made, he's think, "they're wrong, shouldn't have done this to me and I'm pissed".  I have no problem with it at all.  He's just like he is on the ice, feisty and furious.

@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs On the other hand this case could serve for the players and their agents to not overrate themselves. Ask Redden if he would sign the contract again. Grabo is kind of lucky, he can choose his next path.

What was Nonis supposed to do?...he didn't set the deadline date

Maybe Grabo should have selected a more NHL calendar friendly date

@-Keon- I haven't like a Leaf coach since Burns.  Wilson was the worse.  I like the way Charlye handled Kadri and Lupul.

@-Keon- Yea, Grabo should have waited before answering phone calls...he is a good guy.

I think you are 100% correct. I have let go of my grabo disappointment and am happy that we are actually seeing change. Imagine nonis and leiweke stood pat? How pissed would everyone be?

@Yaknowwhat I agree on your analysis.

LW and RW we are pretty set on the top lines.

Center 2-4 is also covered now.

Tending is fine with Reimer and Bernier, however I would not be surprise if Reimer is going to be included in a trade.

Defense with PMD we are set - Gardiner, Franson and Rielly will take at that in the future. 

But I do not believe that Phaneuf is part of the plan. So we need Top line big-minute d-man

@ShotgunCharlie  I am truly hoping for a quiet day, the ONLY Free agent I would like signed would be maybe Scuderi 

Thats it. 

Cheers :)

@theacs1966 @-Keon- He made the playoffs, who cares if they like him (nobody liked Punch Imlach)

Never would with that guy...tried too hard to be outside box/smartest guy in room and his resulting theories don't wash in the bigs.
