    If I was a big businessman, I think I'd jump at the opportunity to buy the Leafs club.

    Funny how losing businesses go under all the time, but this one doesn't.

    They may be a losing hockey team, but they sure as hell aren't a losing business.

    to the ever-shame of their fans..\

    You know, Leafs fans, at the end of the day you're a fan of the team because they play hockey, not because they are a business. One of these days you're going to have to judge them by what they do on the ice, not on the stock market.

    You're really reaching now.

    I know it's just too bad when capitalism rears it's ugly head, but at the very top of any sport, I believe we see the same end result. Money talks, and the sport wherein money can be made will end up the same way.

    The Maple Leafs, Danica Patrick, who else might there be???

    BTW, Leafs fans still see great hockey, even if the other guy wins!!! And that's why they'll never be judged by their performance on the ice!!!

    Other than having the same plumbing, I see no connection between the Leafs and Danica.

    Uh, do you remember posting something about the GAME being so important??? I didn't think so.

    As to what Danica and her team has in common with other businesses, I don't expect understanding from those who can only compare genitalia.

    "Part of what’s gone on here is that they’ve managed to produce a team that is not just bad, but appears to not give a damn," Brunt told Boomer and Rhett. "It’s almost rubbing it in people’s faces - the lack of try, the lack of effort."

    "They are the least likable group of professional athletes I think I’ve ever been around. Just the way they play, outside of the arena, the way they come across – they come across as the opposite of plucky underdogs that are trying really hard even if they’re not quite good enough. This is talented guys who are getting paid enormous amounts of money who stopped trying a long time ago and are kind of laughing at everybody. That’s a bad vibe if you’re a consumer."

    -Stephen Brunt of Sportsnet.

    I'm not sure how they plan on moving the last 3 major pieces (Kessel, Lupul and Phaneuf) but they definitely need to be moved from the line up. I would suspect Toronto will have to swallow some of their salaries to move them, but that may be a small price to pay to remove this cancer from the team.

    Phanuef is a good value at his salary and he will move somewhere to be a #3 or 4 defense-man. In order to move Lupul they will have to eat some of his salary I would think. They will trade Bozac for a bag of pucks(if they can get that) and keep Kessel. He will make a good winger for McDavid.

    Phaneuf is the opposite of a good value for his salary. He almost makes elite player money. He is the 6th highest paid defenseman and I can name 15 guys better than him and an infinite number who are as good as him.

    They will have trouble moving Dion. He is a 4/5 defenseman anymore.

    Indeed, I have no problem seeing that you understand that, and much, much more.
