Good low risk signing for Joe in a short season. Be thankful we are not on the hook for 20 foot Kevin Hayes at 7+ mill for a zillion years. Yikes. Sends shivers up my spine just the sheer thought of it. Jeech!

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.

Don’t worry...
You personally aren’t on the hiok for anything.

No money will be taken away from your KD and diced wieners monthly food budget...no matter how many pathetically desperate and completely inconsequential tire spinning moves that 16 year old kyle dufus makes for the next 9 months until he and shanny are thrown out on their arses and the leafs will have to begin AGAIN from scratch.

SIGH

LOL.... The Leafs are pulling the same nonsense the Rangers and Wings attempted in the 90's.....

It's not going to work..

I don't often get angry over sports but all of these punks took massive discounts to attempt to collude to "win a Cup" in Toronto and now I will root against Toronto because I don't respect collusion - and this nonsense is why Toronto deserves to lose....

Look, you can't buy Cups.

I don't like any of this nonsense.... If you want a Cup then draft well - because that's the only way in a cap era a team can win a Cup.... Every team that has won Cups recently was the result of their drafting..... Look, there is nothing wrong with adding some dudes at the trade deadline but trying this nonsense will absolutely not work....

Look, for some reason Thornton signing in Toronto just pissed me off, lol.... His desperation to win a Cup is just disgusting.... He's not going to win one and IMO he doesn't deserve one - in my opinion Joe Thornton is a dirty player...

I don't have anything against the Leaf as a franchise, but this is not the way to win a Cup....... IMO I think they're going backwards as a franchise.....

IMO, this is throwing crap at the wall and hoping it will stick......

Never overpay for those supporting players. Dubas has it right.

I fail to see how signing a vet at minimum to play a 4th line role is a step back. they'll win beacuse of more important players in the lineup
