Why all this hate for bargs? everyone ..above talent.. Partif success is also being in the best position possible to be successful ...

He's mostlikely staying... And We'll need a true center.. To the Barg haters...you can always watch the Leafs instead!!
i'll put things a little less harshly for you, barg is a very talented player who could fit better at another team. But come on man, number 1 pick who has certainly been given time to make it in toronto? it hasn't worked has it? surely you can see that? And isn't it disappointing a number 1 pick has not been able to learn and adapt and improve?

if we're going to play a basically run and gun style we at least need a gritty C who will box out and pull down boards. If we had that the other 4 could develop their defensive game around that, it would be better for the team.

telling us to go watch hockey coz we think 1 player should be traded? that was silly. the real question is, will you still support us if the italian leaves us!?
