    2 maybe 3 members are here only to nitpick and take cheap shots. Unlike you and I they aren't here to have serious discussions.

Crosby or Teow would not have helped in those departments when a teammate gets run over. I liked Kadri's grit but not his inability to keep his emotions in check. That's not what "grit" is about.
    I agree, it wasn't the wisest thing to do, I just get where it was coming from.
    I don't blame the players at all, they are who they are and there's a lot of skill, just bringing it full circle to
    the original point that it seems like too much money invested in one type of asset.
    Like I said before, not even blaming the Leafs, they were at the forefront of a shift in RFA bargaining landscape and they have some
    really good players they don't want getting away.
    I do have issues with Babcock though, and I respect his achievements and what he's accomplished here but he casts a really big shadow.
    I hope I'm wrong about him.

    In a coma for a couple of years, just napping the rest of the time.
