Bruins not signing Chara?

Will the Leafs? Be stupid not too if all he wants is a million.

I'd like him signed.

It was rumoured before but it appears Bruins are cutting their budget this year.

If you're smart in investing money you never buy an expensive jersey that belongs to a 41 year-old on a 1 year deal.
- RogerRoeper

Since when has buying a leafs jersey become an 'investment'??
As well -- collectors item!

When has a jersey been a colector's item for a player who plays 1 year?
Marner, Matthews, Nylander, Tavares are the smart jersey buys

He’d be better then Marincin, plus our team would finally be the bully instead of putting our head down after taking a fist and sauntering to the bench. 😞

Joe Thornton on why he believes #Leafs can win: "I love their goalie. I like Freddie a lot. I think that was a big part of my decision, I think he's a great goalie."

In related news, San Jose didn't resign Thornton because it is obvious he has been hitting the bottle, early and hard.

When I read this tweet earlier, I thought 'who the (frank) is this guy - an insecure little mama's boy'?

Joe Thornton says a conversation with Joe Montana helped make the decision to leave San Jose for Toronto easier.

I’d be too worried that BruisedFlyers would make fun of us. That guy knows a thing or two (on his good days).

Chara on the Leafs would look really weird, but I'd be ok with it.

I saw this. Logged in to comment since the first time since... apparently 2011 when Todd Cordell wrote a piece on why the flames shouldn't bring Iginla back.

I remember the off season when Iginla resigned in Calgary and somebody was saying "they need to sit Iginla and Thornton down in a room and sign them for as many years at as many dollars as they want and win." I remember thinking, Boston is never going to let Thornton go.

I then simultaneously had three epiphanies!

1) I'm old
2) Does Thornton really still play!?!?!?!?
3) Toronto still makes the same mistakes they did back then

I feel so sorry for leafs fans (and we've only had it MARGINALLY better in Calgary), I THINK our management realized the only real problem has been goalie-ing! but what do I know? I'm just a blog-reply-guy.

Join me in second team cheering for the Sabres? (Love any Hall success after Edmonton traded an all-star for.... somebody)
