  1. Ya, the Canucks have sure shown their penchant for winning cups.
  2. You're living in a fantasy land if you think FA could have stood alone and strong armed 29 other owners.
  3. Yes, I absolutely said: And then I clarified with: I just meant dead in the middle of their "window" to compete and in an absolutely atrocious cap position with significant players still required to sign. The Leafs are screwed and I love it, but they absolutely had to give up the pick to shed Marleau and I don't think that Nucks fans would be outraged if they were in a similar position and absolutely had to give up a 1st to shed Loui. Luckily, we're much better off than that.
  4. What are you talking about? Your first point was this: I refuted that you were taking a rather rosy outlook in comparing the two, which you absolutely were. The player with the chance of contributing more this upcoming season is without a doubt Marleau. They're both bad contracts and likely will both suck, but you were trying to say that Loui>Marleau which is ridiculous.
  5. More like Marleau two seasons ago, but nice spin.
  6. If you zoom out and take a closer look at the last few years, Marleau is much more effective and he's a leader in the room. Marleau: 82 27 19 46 82 27 20 47 82 16 21 37 Loui: 65 11 13 24 50 10 13 23 81 11 18 29 It's not inconceivable that Marleau has a bit of a bounce back year and still puts up respectable numbers, although at his age it's probably unlikely. He can still bring good leadership to a team in need. Loui has been done for the entirety of his contract here and I don't think after 3 seasons of being dead in the water that he's got anything left.
  7. Are you dense? Did you read my post at all? I'm saying the Leafs a in deep and had no choice but to pay that price to shed Marleau's salary in order to keep Marner. If JB somehow got us in the same position in a few years and we had to give up a first to shed dead cap in order to keep Petey, Nucks fans would accept it.

  9. If the Canucks were in the position that the Leafs are in currently, I don't think anyone would be freaking out about giving up a 1st.
  10. What's more likely, 29 owners cave to the desire of 1 or 1 caves to the desires of 29?
