And maybe then we’ll get some real news.
- Edmonton Journal: Should the Edmonton Oilers push to acquire Nazem Kadri and Jake Gardiner (Ed Note: With pretty similar needs, Edmonton and Toronto do not seem like suitable trading partners when it comes to a major deal).
- NHL Trade Rumours: Darren Dreger points out the obvious with the Thornton rumour
- Sportsnet: This piece titled “Kypreos: Leafs trying hard for Thornton” has been deleted

Just learned a friend of mine's former band mate who lives in California was turned down by her insurance company for hospital coverage after learning her husband has cancer all through his bones and brain. The family has paid $100,000 in premiums since 2008. Now they have to fight the company. I'm channeling my Leaf anger elsewhere fora while.
I really think the Leafs are making a mistake if they don't trade that pick for a young player 21-24 years old who can help us now.
I see as being on a path similar to the Hurricanes right now, except without having had great earlier success. Skinner and Faulk are emerging now just as Staal is declining and all their veterans have left. That is what the 8th overall pick will be for us, even in a best case scenario. We need to help our core now.
A Dan Boyle as a mentor for Gardiner and especially Rielly might be really really good for a year or two. Not sure if Boyle has the right personality, but as a beacon for those two kids...perfect
@Xxxxxnew typical, they are all crooks
@Loric76 For more picks, I would be Ok with that
@ingy56 So it' a negotiating ploy. Nothing to see here.
"Nonis would like to get wins, obviously if you get a loss it isn't a win"
it will all be worth it when the Leafs win the cup!
still better ice than the ACC...
@TheCanucksnaphook What's the news? I've been away for a bit.....
@mcloki good call, I need a pick me up, think I'll watch her audition youtube video now :D cheers
And the Boyle on Nonis' head from pulling his hair out.
@Bruffins Crack is a terrible drug. Put the pipe down.
Us Leaf fans have known hat for decades!
@Loric76 More ownership.
@Loric76 I usually try to stay optimistic (I'm a Leafs fan after all), but the rumours and reports about the Leafs' offseason moves so far are giving me a BAAAAAAAAD feeling. Not signing Komarov? Going after Boyle? Considering resigning Mason "Mr Floater" Raymond. I've already ranted on here enough about the inexplicable non-firing of Carlyle, but things are not looking good.
@Bruffins I hope he and that other guy along with him is fired as soon as possible.
@Bruffins next year
