CALL 911!!! Call 911!!!!   I'M GONNA  SLIT MY WRISTS!!!!   CALL 911!!!!!  

Just read here that we once "gave away!" Stralman.  

And we should be bothered?   lol

We got a 2nd for him then. Two months later Calgary could only get a 3rd for him.  

Columbus renewed his contract for ONE YEAR ONLY, then let him walk FOR NOTHING without qualifying him.

He sat in Europe without a contract a month into the season before the injury riddled Rangers gave him a call. Now they let him walk for nothing too after 7 and 13 point seasons.   

But OMG, we "gave away" Stralman.   

Somebody hand me a razor blade, I'm so bummed out we gave away Stralman. : )

See that someone suggested Dany Heatley. Not sure why??? But I'd be ok with it as long as we give him a hot new ferrari as a signing bonus and make him agree to drive Clarkson to the rink every day.

sp after doing so searching, it sounds like Polak was moved up to play top 4 a few times last year with backman and others. They moved Shattenkirk down because he was not good defensively and Polak played his off side more then a few times. If he can here we are set keeping the noob franson

This year...Tampa will kick our ass, Florida still mostly sucks, Boston will kick our ass, Montreal will finish ahead of us, Islanders may give us a run...with a healthy Halak.

well if are not going to get anyone, i dont see why mcclement is such a bad idea as the 4th line centre again. i KNOW HES NOTHING more, but we need someone

@Jordan29 HE is perfect because if he does anything at all, we can unload him at the trade deadline.  Thats why I would take this sort of a chance.  Keeps Clarkson down on line 3 too.

Raymond had more goals and 17 more points than heatley this year.

@Jordan29 @Bobsyouruncle Stralman was on the brink of bagging groceries or pumping gas.............. ppl will do amazing things when they get a second chance.

@Bruffins @Jordan29 lol well their fans want him gone. ask any of them. They all thought he was as good as gone this summer and now BAM they lose polak

peterbleafs

@DJGLENN22 @peterbleafs Not a hater, love my leafs...but realistic..same coach is the biggest issue, and no material changes...Polak role was supposedly Gleasons last year...he couldnt handle it...so we retain cap hit to get rid of him and bring in Polak. Same coach, basically same roster, tougher competition...and we expect better?

Heatley looks at Kadri and says "what, you want ME to get get that?  bahahaha"

i don't even think Lupul would crack a smile at that one

Hmmm

@Jordan29 @Bruffins Lots of people here want Phaneuf gone.  Even if heaven sent us down one of their gods, no one seems able to live up to expectations.

@The_Polish_Cannon @peterbleafs @DJGLENN22 I do really like Robidas and loved his interview saying how he would pair with one of our young guys and bring him along.  That to me was a terrific decision and I really loved Komarov and Polak deals.
