    I'm not so sure the Burke formula works anymore, I interepret that formula to be a nasty physical team surrounding a scorer.  I think he lucked out with that strategy in Anaheim to a degree, I'm not convinced he was picking the skilled/nasty guys because of their skill or truculance.  Or at best, I just don't think you can get the nasty/skilled bunch that you need to pull it off - everybody wants those guys.  Anaheim had a lot of stupid penalties and somehow managed to get out of it.  Also the overall strategy seems more like a one shot deal to build to a cup run and after that, nothing much.

    Re: Toronto Record Tracker

    Its amazing how fast the climate changed up here.  When the Leafs were 4-0, Burke and Wilson were being hailed as pure gold, supporters were thumbing their noses at the prospect of Boston holding their first round pick with a bit of a "Let 'em have it 'cause we'll finish high." kind of posture. 

    Now, folks and media types have turned their critical eye towards those same former sources of all that is, or at least, was good in blue and white.  Already, there's a clock ticking on Wilson should the team continue to flounder.  Daily articles in The Toronto Star and Toronto Sun blare headlines about the club's woes.  Like day and night, man. 

    No disrespect intended but purely from the standpoint of Bruin draft purposes, I love it.  Earlier, it was getting rather insufferable around here. 

    Seriously, folks, if you can, tune in "Leafs Tonight" on AM 640, the team's post-game call-in show.  You'll hear some amazingingly bizarre callers that often defy logic especially after the Leafs lose.

    Early in the first period, Leafs leading the Canucks 1-0.  Fredrick Sjostrum tips one past Luongo.  Leafs are carrying the play to Vancouver.

    Kessel makes it 2-0, Leafs.  Quick release from the slot.

    Olsonic - He's played every game so far this season.  He just hasn't been scoring as projected as the Leafs' No. 2 center so it seems as though he's been out of the lineup.

    Guguere lets a Mason Raymond slapper from just to the left of the face off circle go under him for a 4-3 Canuck lead with 7 mins and change left in the third.

    davecarr - If you can, listen to the Leafs' post-game call in show, "Leafs Talk" on AM 640.  You'll hear the most insane, unhinged callers frothing at the mouth especially after a Leaf loss.  Tonight will be no different.

    The Leafs played well and still lost. Up next is Nashville. Let the losing streak continue! I can't wait to listen to Andy Frost and read about the Leafs on TSN. This is great, I'm loving it!

    At least we get the Lafs consolation prize tonight.

    Is the Kessel cult out again because he scored tonight?

    BadHab - You know Kessel's star would have been a super nova had the Leafs won tonight.  Over the course of his team's latest woes, sports-talk callers have not allowed him to escape their spotlight.  I've heard everything from a rehash of the deal being a bad one to he needs help up front to get him the puck because he can't do it alone.  Usual stuff.  Lately, most emotion has been aimed at Burke and Wilson.

    I can't believe people aren't ready to lynch him up there.
    Goalie pulled and he does one of his patented perimeter low percentage shots?
    It's really incredible to me that people aren't calling him out.  He's going to have to turn 30 before he wises up.

    Re: Toronto Record Tracker

    BadHab - Around here, Kessel gets as close to a pass as a Leaf has had in recent memory because he's the closest thing to a bonafide sniper the team has had in recent memory, certainly since Alex Molgilny was on Sundin's wing back in '96. 

    He's the golden boy of the club, the one player through whom their offence must flow.  One doesn't often hear much mention of the aspects of his game those in Boston used to see; the floating around the blue line, not usually venturing into his own end to help the D and as you mentioned, the perimeter low percentage shot.  Its Wilson and Burke who appear to be the targets of the fans' angst.

    Just heard a caller on the Leafs' post-game call in show, "Leafs Talk" say Kaberle should be installed at center just like Leonard "Red" Kelly did back in the Leafs' last Cup winning year, 1967.  There you go!

    "He's going to have to turn 30 before he wises up."

    When I first read that, I thought you said "washes up"

    The more I think about it, it'll go one of two ways, and it's 50-50 right now which way it goes!

    [QUOTE]Now with Toronto only being 2 points away from being last in the league (now 27th out of 30) do you think PC will hold onto that 1st round pick no matter what? Would you trade it for a puck moving dman, etc?
    Posted by DanteFratto[/QUOTE]

    Absolutely not, for the simple reason that they can't afford a stud PMD right now without a major roster reshuffle. Hang on to that pick and you'll get your PMD (Larsson, plz) at a bargain-basement price.
