Poll: Now What?

    by -

    There will be nothing but time now to discuss the direction forward for this organization in wake of yet another late-season catastrophe. Frankly, it’s going to take a few days for us here at MLHS to build up the energy.

    Here’s your discussion question.

    The season is over after an 8+ game losing streak. Now what? (select multiple)

    Ferraro "you can preach as much as you want but if the guys refuse to do it, you're in trouble"

    Ferraro "if the Leafs can't raise the pace and get into a track meet they're sunk"

    Ferraro "if the Leafs get a great chance and don't score then they don't get another one for 5-6 minutes"

    Ferraro "whether the Leafs make the playoffs or not I don't think that will determine whether there is a lot of change or not"

    Leafs annual swoon is just like Flight 370. So many clues and false leads, but no real answer. Always going in circles.

    Ferraro "remember when Carlyle was hired the one thing we heard was how detailed he was and how he would drive his players nuts with detail"

    Ferraro "there's either an unwillingness from the players or they're incapable of paying attention to detail in Toronto"

    @Shift_Disturber1  Thnak God he will only be on regional Ottawa Sens games in the future. Good riddance to so many bad broadcasters.

    @Shift_Disturber1  Sadly when that happens it reminds you of the good episodes from past.  This just reminds us that not much has really changed lol.

    @mcloki @wiski  Put Franson in net. He might as well see what it's like when you have to deal with shitty giveaways all night.

    @Biltmore @TheGroobster  Not soley hating on Nonis but I can not believe that was the asking price in the NHL for a guy who fights and scored 30 goals once with a career high 46 points. Imagine Burke gave that to Kuli after his 30 goal 57 point campaign.

    @Biltmore @TheGroobster  Most of Clarkson's contract was signing bonuses so it's not that bad. Too bad they didn't just make it all performance based bonuses instead.

    @MaxwellHowe @vinoa  If your revenue stream was in the millions I'm sure that's a big nono and heads would roll. With the way Leiweke's been spending, you gotta wonder if they haven't given him carte blanche to do whatever it takes to maximize their revenue. Until the big TFC signings, I would have never thought that MLSE would actually want to spend money on a losing cause. Without the Leafs, there's no way they go through with the arena expansion for TFC. It's a new era in TO, the Leiweke era.

    @vinoa Corporate executives don't like having to explain a $27 million write off

    @vinoa @Biltmore @TheGroobster Problem is, bonuses have to be paid out in full, at least thats my understanding.  So for the bean counters at MLSE, thats around $27 million out the window.  There won't be any buyout this summer.  More likely to seek a trade and pay a good portion of that contract
