I think that's why Wilson will be the best coach for him, he's a no bs coach, plus Zherdev is a man on a mission because the Rangers released him and he's got everything to prove, I don't think he's gonna runaway to the KHL, if Burke wants him, he'll be a leaf by the end of the week. Let's be honest, the Leafs need Zherdev for their top line, our team is a bench of bottom six forwards and I don't think the kids (Bozak, Hanson, Tlusty) should be thrown into the top 6 positions at the beginning of the season.

Uh, Tortorella is a no BS coach and Zherdev did nothing under him. Ken Hitchcock is a wonderful coach and Zherdev didn't live up to potential.. and playing with Rick Nash to boot. You can keep making excuses for the guy, but the reality is that he's lazy. Right now, you're really reaching. If you thought he was an underperformer now, wait until he hits the media circus of Toronto.

The Leafs' top-6 forwards are Blake, Ponikarovsky, Grabovski, Stempniak, Hagman and Kulemin. Zherdev won't do much with those guys on the top-6. If the Leafs are smart, they stay away from the guy. Let's put it this way, he didn't even get an invite with the Russian team for the 2010 Olympics. That's what the Russian Ice Hockey Federation thought about him.

TSN just announced that Theo Fleury is trying to make a comback and wants to be re-instated into the NHL @ the tender age of 41.

What, is he broke?

Leafs Deal Pogge To Anaheim

Press Release - Brian Burke, president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Monday that the team has acquired a conditional draft pick in 2011 from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for goaltender Justin Pogge.

Pogge, 23, played in seven games for the Maple Leafs last season, earning a record of 1-4-1, a 4.35 goals against average and a .844 save percentage. He made 19 saves and earned the win in his NHL debut, a 6-2 victory at Atlanta on December 22. In 53 games with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies the 6-3, 204-pound goaltender registered a 2.70 goals against average and a 26-21-5 record.
Thank god.

This kid was never going to be good. I'm glad we're ivesting our future with that Swedish goaltender, rather than that useless bum.

Not bad, but he has yet to place one skate on NHL ice. Everyone is getting hyped over his stupid nickname and Bryan freekin Burke's words. Let's see what happens,and i remember a couple years ago when alot of people thought Pogge was a very good prospect for the leafs and was their goalie of the future. That turned out to be complete bullshit.

Naw apparently the cabbie wouldn't unlock the cab doors and Kane and his friend were trapped lol ...as for pogge being traded, I'm a lil disappointed because he's got potential, let's hope the freeing up of a roster spots sets up a bigger move (ex trade kaberle) and the leafs pick up a top line center ... I think kabs nto kicks in again on Saturday.

I wish Burke would keep Kabs. He and Komiserik would be a deadly 1, 2 punch on the blue line. I at least hope we get something decent for him, unlike the Kabina trade

I heard a rumor that Bruins would trade Kessel to get Kabs.

Ya bro there was a rumour but it died a lil while after the draft...Burke was willing to do kabs for kessel + 1st round pic but the bruins gm thought it was kabs + 1st rounder for kessel... Who the fck would trade a premier dman and a first round pick(kadri) for a restricted FA, the bruins gm was out of his mind...I don't know what's going on with the bruins and kessel these days but if contract negotiations are far off, the leafs could sent an offer sheet to kessel.

Chelios Wants To Play For Leafs


Toronto Sun - Chris Chelios is lobbying for a job with the Maple Leafs.

Chelios asked coach Ron Wilson if the Leafs were in the market for a veteran defenseman on Monday, according to the Toronto Sun.

"He still wants to play," Wilson said.

Chelios, 47, didn't have his contract renewed by the Red Wings at the end of last season, but isn't ready to retire.

"You can make an argument that he's the greatest American player of all time," Wilson said. "I know some people will say (Pat) Lafontaine and some will say (Mike) Modano. But Chelios is a true warrior, he's been around for all the great battles."

Chelly's really only good for 5-10 minutes a night. He would be a nice addition if the Leafs were youthful, didn't have any vet presence and if there wasn't a logjam with minutes at the D position. Right now, he'd be better off going to Chicago and helping out those guys.
