Much better defense, more depth, much better goalie tandem, and less holes to fill.

And missing elite talent....

You had all that cap and it's been spent without adding much talent at all.

And we'll see about your goaltending remark. Leafs are paying almost 10 million less for goalies against the cap and I think they can be better. Andersen (Who I do not like for the record), has posted better numbers for half the cap the past 3 years than Price. Campbell has put up some damn good numbers (928 save % in LA 2 years ago) and makes 1.4 the next 2 years. For 10.5 Price better be better than 909% this upcoming year.

Habs just don't have anyone close to the likes of what Matthews, Marner Nylander will do this year. Nylander is Leafs 4th best forward (Some argue 5th, I don't) and he would have been the Habs best forward last year. And remember, those 3 are 24 and under. They are only getting better.

I'll take Leafs D now, thanks. Younger, faster, more talented.


Habs should have just done a full rebuild. Price and Weber will need to be replaced soon enough. This half-assed rebuild with overpaying UFAs won't work.

Talent wins cups. That Domi trade and the extension with Anderson was dumb

They are playing 4th line roles. GMs who give 3 million per to 4th liners are morons.

Rielly, Brodie, Dermott, Muzzin, Sandin, Bogosian, Lehtonen, Holl are younger overall and more talented and faster than Habs D.

The real WC for the Leafs D is Lehtonen. So much talent. But he won't start as a top 4 D

I love Petry. So good. But Edmonstone was a bad overpay.

Stanley Cup winners don’t have 41 year olds centreing their 4th line.

Now that’s embarrassing.

So it's better to have younger worse and more expensive players centering 4th lines.

Prior to this season Sharks were considred a strong cup contender with Thornton in an even bigger role...

You might want to elevate your aspirational hockey play level...montreal hasn’t won the cup since 93.

In fact they’ve pretty much blown chunks ever since.

If you really want to feel better about yourself...try comparing your team to the sabres.

Now THAT’S a full on KIM PEGULA freak show!!!

No doubt taylor hall has THE worst agent in hockey.

LOL. Keep telling yourself that. Biggest losers of this offseason. Adding overpriced 3rd liners, bottom pair d-men, and back up goalies will ensure that they remain irrelevant

Hey, the Anderson trade and contract were obviously terrible. People are pretty much unanimous on that

But I’d WAY rather have Anderson for 7 years at $5.5M than JVR or Hayes for $7M+

Worst two contracts in the league, and a perfect example of Philly’s ineptitude. Next year, they’ll give $7.5M to someone like Granlund, and officially run their team into the ground

It’s the Philly way. Also, has anyone actually been there? Wow. Bunch of inbred mouth-breathers, man. The kids there don’t need to wear masks on Halloween

Anderson is useless at any price.

Useless is useless.

We can afford to overpay when we we’re paying Carter Hart 734k.

Yup...you read that correctly.
