Don't know enough about the new asst GM...but I do think it was time for Loiselle and Poulin to go....Loiselle had proved he was not the greatest numbers/cap guy...and I got the sense that Poulin was merely going through the motions as a yes man.....i always get concerned when we hire guys with little or no previous NHL front office experience....but it sounds like he knows his stuff....Nonis has got to be wondering if he is next....

Still think Nonis will be shown the door with Carlyle and a Babcock will be tried to be brought in (if not, then Spott) and that a Rob Blake or similar type GM takes over (Dubas seems to be a perfect assistant type supplying info and ideas for decision makers)

I appreciate the way the Leafs spread out their transactions.  Kept the summer interesting (from a hockey perspective)

`Also listening to Dubas interview he has alot of the same philosophies as me which I personally like from the little I know about him.

Was happy about the Shanny move when we got him despite so many here critisizing it and his first interview with Timmy, but since then, Timmys backed off (after he found his guy finally) and Shanny HAS changed the culture.  Less and less returnies that shouldnt be here and didnt bring in old washed up snabs and old paradigm thinkers into the office.  Gotta be partially satisfied.  He is doing this patiently but correctly in my eyes

Good day.  Loiselle gone is only a plus.  Bringing in fresh ideas and out of NHL circle (still connected but not the old boys club) is great.  Also like Booth signing as depth and obviosuly all these cheap trys wont workout, but they have so many now youd think a few will atleast surpass expectation!

Is signing Booth advanced stats or tossing a bone to Phils cousin

@Burtonboy Was actually going to mention that below when someone asked who is still available with good stats. He's like MacArthur though I'm pretty sure - the stats are there because of the way he is utilized. Sheltered minutes. .

@dlb Mad There interviews were painful to read and listen to.

@Cloud09 Look at that nice dog he's clearly a wonderful guy, I like him already

@CanuckUKinToronto More likely depth signing to shore up roster. Keeps guys like Levio and Nylander from getting rushed up.

@Burtonboy well if Poulin was only managing the Marlies this statement may have some validity but...

@Murph2417 Tells me the chances of Smith or Orr being on this team are pretty slim.

@Murph2417 He played mostly with Brad Richardson and Zack Kassian
