man. i thought you would be happy with berg and domi gone but no! why do you consistenly have to have a hate-on for two leafs every season (well, the two you have been on the board)? how about focussing on some players that are doing well?
do you not remember me getting in shit for saying the leafs are gonna do good and that the young guys are kicking ass?
and there were a lot more than two shit players on the team last year;)

kubina hasnt done anything to merit being called an offensive defenceman, i hope he finds his form or else we have two vastly overpaid d and one grossly underpaid(kaberle)

hopefully they lay a beating to the thrashers tonight:)

Can't believe no one has started this thread yet???

McCabe, 5 years, no trade clause. $25 million.

What. A. Joke.

Why do the Leafs continually do this kind of stuff?

Unreal.

Wow.

What a waste of money. I kinda see where he's coming from though, there aren't really that many good UFA defensemen this year.

I don't think Redden and Chara signed yet? They're both FA's, though not sure if U/RFA.

They are and Ottawa can only afford one... Chara has been rumoured coming to T.O for a while now.

Too much, but not suprising.

McCabe may be overrated by many Leaf fans, but this whole 'he sucks and cant defend' opinion has totally swung too far in the other direction, just as overblown in my opinion.

Hartford. Kinda a lost soul, but I love hockey, so I'm rooting for thier replacments:D
Loved it when they kicked the leafs out of the conference finals.:D
Besides thier lack of respect for thier fans, I have other personal reasons why I hate the organisation. (no I wasn't molested)

Ah, I guess you like their colours as child.

Strong foundation for fandom, will you be passing that on to your kids? j/k

They really screwed their fans with playoff prices.

I'd like to see Rod get a cup, but not at the expense of the Oilers.

Honestly I'm torn on that as well.
At the start of the playoffs I was rooting for both, and they have both provided some of the best games I've ever watched! It's always so much better to watch when you have a team you are truly rooting for!

And I liked Hartford cuz I had met Mike Liut the first year I REALLY got into hockey in like grade 4 or 5. and I thought the H hidden in their logo was clever.

OVERPAID! Fuck! What is the fucking deal here? Jesus. Gonchar pt II! Kaberle is the best d man we have and we're paying him a million and a quarter less (maybe more) for his faggot partner. Shit.

If anything this playoff has shown is that we need to simply get more mobile, more quick.

Maurice better be able to get somesort of workable D coach, b/c if we get another Rick Ley we're is big trouble.

chara rumoured to go to nyr to join his slovak friends.

lidstrom- you can't sign him for five years. jovanovski- sure, he's good, but he's not offence-minded.

people, relax. it isn't the end of the world. 5M for a 20-goal scoring defenseman, and we still have tons of room under the cap.

chiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil.

I disagree. The problem for him towards the end of the season was that his linemates were not punishing the opposition for playing so high in the slot on the powerplay. When that happened it should have been a scoring frenzy for all of the forwards (O'Niell especially); the only one who managed to take advantage of it was Sundin. Keep in mind also, that both Kaberle and McCabe had to play unholy amounts of icetime this year. 5M is not unreasonable for a guy who handles 28 minutes a game and scores. Redden and Chara are overrated, their numbers were inflated by the strength of their forwards, and still neither of them managed to beat McCabe in goals or assists.

I'm OK, but not thrilled, with this deal.

I couldn't agree more. IMO, with the new rules Kaberle is one of the top 5 or 7 defencemen in the league. $6 million is way too much for McCabe. I think JFJ's thought process is that in order to get a player that's better than McCabe (Lidstrom and Chara) they would have to fork out the maximum allowed which is probably $7 or 8 million per season; that's out of the question for the Leafs. Next they have to look at players at McCabe's level, which are Blake, Redden and Jovo. Blake is a little better than McCabe, but I don't think they can get him for $6 million. This leaves you with Jovo and Redden, at this price I'll probably go with McCabe. I think JFJ signed the best players available at that price, but it's not good value.

Oh! Pardon me! I meant to say "... for this faggot partner." I'd originally considered using "homosexual", but it didn't have the same ring to it. I wanted the foul language to give the opinion a garralous feel. I think it worked.

The thing that is most interesting here is that there exists a bit to this story that JFJ & MLSE are overpaying even McCabe's asking price. With that thrown into the mix I find this deal even more unpalatable.
