[Tuesday's FTB]: Tank smarter not harder

Way to go Leafs. Just Leaf up this Leafy tank. Listen guys, here's what you need to do:

Put Lupul on IR for the rest of the season. Just make something up, everyone will believe you.

Suspend Kadri for the rest of the season, show him who's boss when it comes to being late.

While you're at it, suspend Kessel for "not training hard enough".

Dion needs to recover from an upper body injury (media fatigue), send him to his summer home in PEI to recuperate.

JvR is looking a little tired, he has mono. IR.

Rielly needs to get away from this losing environment. Send him to the Marlies.

Now, to fill these holes, let's call up FML, Orr, Biggsy, and Devane on forward and MacWilliam/Marshall on D.

Two sides to this right? The NHL says it wants to grow the game, well, would propping up this ala NBA/WNBA be the right move? Other side is: It's a money loser and we know these NHL owners hate that. Would Jeremy Jacobs really pay for the Blades? He made employees pay taxes on their cup rings!
