Kerfoot kind of sucks, especially for his cap hit, but I don't see how Thornton is an improvement over... uh, anyone currently on the roster. Also the thought of Thornton, Spezza and Simmonds potentially all playing together is terrifying. Imagine them and Muzzin + Holl on D.

He does kind of suck, but I'd rather give him one more year to see if he improves. I am not entirely convinced that the team continually being in flux hurt him.

Oh Lucy, I do apologize, I been so terribly busy. Honestly, I barely have the time to drink deep and descend.


I just want to see a Joe Thornton Hat Trick before I die.

I'm sure he wants to see one before he dies as well

What I'm saying is that someone needs to put up 4 and just whip it out at center ice. Now that I write it down I can't believe they haven't actually done this on Letterkenny yet. Seems like a pretty Shoresy move

Matthews and Marner demanded a new father from the San Jose Sharks after Marleau didn't pan out.

I think Joe should be allowed to play clutch and grab hockey and pin guys to the boards or just lay on them in the defensive end... anyone still playing who played pre lockout deserves that much.

It going to be extremely weird seeing Spezza and Thornton together on the ice. But, I accept it.

Even without Thornton, the top-3 from 1997 have played more games for the Leafs than any of their draft picks did that year.

Jeff Farkas played 8 games, Adam Mair played 24 games, Shawn Thornton never played for the Leafs, and neither did Jonathan Hedstrom.

The fourth pick, of course, was originally Toronto's but they traded it to the Islanders for Wendel Clark.

Trading Clark originally got them Sundin so you got to make a move to negate that and balance the universe.

Hooray Jumbo

Kerfootís fine, heís just not a bargain on a team that desperately needs players who are underpaid. Thereís no way the Leafs move him after signing Vesey IMO. The Leafs have an abundance of 4th line centres now but thatís not really an issue.

It is funny how Marleau and Thornton are alternating stops on this team. Iím just glad Joe wonít cost $6M for multiple seasons.

Guerin put up 12 in 17 followed by 15 in 24 in the playoffs. 45 in 78 the regular season after with 9 in 11 that post season. I too would like to see such things if only to waste a year of Marner.

Maybe the threat was that COVID would take out an opposing team and HC Davos would come over as a replacement and beat the Leafs at home.

I think what it means is Jumbo is going to score 10 points in 20 games, then break his hip and retire.

Lol I love that NYR and PIT finally dumped the massive pylons on their blueline.....and swiftly replaced them with new pylons.

The wheel of mediocrity in the NHL continues to turn! Itís not just bad GMs who constantly get second (or third, fourth, fifth) chances..

JR, and the Pittsburgh org as a whole have no idea how to evaluate defensemen lol. Whether itís using a mid 1st on dudes like Joe Morrow, Simon Despres, and Derrick Pouliot, or trades/free agency, pretty much all bad

However, the Ceci signing I approve of

I remember when Bryan Murray offered Ceci $4mil x 8 year extension or something and he turned it down in like 2016-17 - I think he ended up getting like 4.3/1 year in arb instead lol
