OK, obviously I'm having a bit of fun. The Leafs shouldn't trade everyone, but this seems like a good time to clear off some excess crud and open some cap space for next season. If that means Tim Connolly
, Clarke MacArthur
, Matthew Lombardi
, Colby Armstrong
, and yes, Mikhail Grabovski
, then I say go for it. It's probably the end for Ron Wilson as well. The Leafs still need upgrades in net, on defense, and up front. They remain a few years away from being anything close to a contender. The current group of players is a transitional group. They're the bridge between the team JFJ iced and the contender we all hope Brian Burke will ice some day. If that's the case, then I have no problem dumping guys who may not be part of the long term plans. What do you think the Leafs should do before 3pm tomorrow?
