How will Shanahan make his presence felt?

When will Caryle get the axe?

What route should the parade follow?

Praise be to The Phil.

Go Leafs Go?

But Shanahan is president of hockey operations now! He will save the Leafs! Does anyone else feel that making a suit the face of the franchise (again) is just a bit problematic?

So you're suggesting that they should make someone not a part of management the head of the franchise?

Once they make them the head of the franchise don't they become part of management?

Jesus fuck! Are you dense? Other than the Leafs, has another team made the GM, president, or any other member of the management the face of the franchise? No! Crosby is the face of Pittsburgh. Ovechkin is the face of Washington. The Sedins are the faces of Vancouver. Weber is the face of Nashville. Toronto? The president of hockey operations. Do you not see this as a problem?

I guess you haven't been paying attention. Trevor Linden was announced last week as the new President of the Canucks. And Daniel was taken off the ice last night in a stretcher. The Sedins have combined for around 25 goals this year, so they're hardly the force they once were.

Yzerman in TB
Gretz in PHO
Linden in VAN

I think the Shanny move is a great move, it doesn't fix anything but it should provide some direction and leadership that is clearly lacking in the front office since the loss of Burke. Say what you want about Burke but his moves set this team up to take the next step, it's unfortunate he was handcuffed a few times due to lack of availablility/resources but the cap wasn't much of an issue and key players were locked up.

And now Nonis killed the cap space and enlarged the commitment

you mention Vancouver, and they recently made the exact same move when they brought in Linden to be president of hockey operations. Colardo made a similar move when they promoted Sakic.

you're getting pretty riled up over someone being the "face" of the franchise. i don't think the Leafs have made that an "official" part of his job. I'm sure their marketing department won't be putting his face on every program this year.

patty roy in colorado is more or less the face of the franchise...burke is the face of every franchise he's involved with and has been for like..his entire career

id also suggest that shanahan is far less of a "suit" than most due to the high level he played the game at. nonis played in the minors and i think some semi-pro in a shit euro league...him i would disdainfully call "a suit" but i don't know if id apply that tag to someone like shanahan..

The crying and whining from Mr Maggie Mae and Towelboy is hilarious. All they do is hyper spazz out with their tantrums because they got butt hurt.

Ovechkin really accomplishing all their is in Washington. Takes a real Loser to get that assessment wrong. What video game system are you playing to come up with it anyway?

I really don't have a vested interest in the Leafs. I just enjoy reading and listening to moronic Leafs fans, e.g. you, trying to rationalize that this organization isn't shit. Really, come talk to me when the Leafs finally play in a Stanley Cup final that is being broadcast in colour
