Disagree. I think Dubas expects Vesey to score 20 goals. For the Leafs. Or the prorated version of it in a shortened season.

Hoping Thornton and Simmonds can each get close to 20 as well.

what it means is that the Leafs are going to be the same but most likely worse than before
- sliprock65

Agreed. Emphasis on the word worse.

Not surprised that being the centre of the hockey universe means that our gravitic force draws in tiny pieces of garbage like you into our orbit. Hope you enjoy your stay, doesn't seem you're capable if escaping.

Brucey's mind is a black hole. Even the late Stephen Hawking couldn't solve it.

Thornton isn't a goal scorer. He'll rack up the assists. If Simmonds is healthy I don't see any reason why he can't score 20.

Thornton has been slow his whole career and he’s done ok. He’s played with all kinds of players. I think he’ll be fine. He can still pass and he can still teach the kids and unlike Marleau he’s here on a one year, league minimum contract. We’re not freaking out.

You could be right.. I just don't think that's his best or Nicks best usage..no doubt it could work..

Hawking was very overrated...spent most of his academic life trying to prove it was possible to travel back in time. Finally admitted he was wrong. And from what i understand...just a complete jackass in real life. Probably was a leafs habs or canucks fan I’m guessing...the absolute royalty of jackass hockey fans.

Much rather be a Flyers fan, where players would rather retire than play for the Flyers.

Me neither...unless being entirely broke as a hockey player is a reason.

Good analogy.

I picture Bruce as the brain rot worm that Khan puts in Chekov’s ear.
