Most of the hockey world, with or without graphs, saw the Leaf collapse coming. Getting outshot 2-1 on many nights, scoring chances greatly favoring the other teams etc. led most to believe their early winning record was not sustainable. I am too lazy to dig out my post early in the season last season while they were winning, but I stated the same.

Since there has been much discussion recently (again) about bad trades of the past, I thought I would share one I haven't seen lately and stir the pot some more. I just can't believe we traded Ted Kennedy for Frank Eddols. Man, did Selke ever fleece the Habs on that one.

I am actually surprised that Istanbul is not on that list. Great city.

I thought most people were finally off MT's back. I was not thrilled with him coming back, but his success has silenced most of his detractors, myself included. I mean, I haven't even saw a "Is MT still coach?" post from Timo for some time now.

Best analogy I have read regarding Bouillon so far (forget who posted it): Bouillon is like a baby's soother to MT. If you don't throw it away for good, he will keep reaching for it. Always liked Bouillon, but I feel it is time for him to move on and give some of the younger guys a shot.

Seems to me I also remember him muscling Pronger off the puck behind the net in a Canada vs Finland game (2006?) and setting up the winning goal. Tried to find a clip of it but no luck. Maybe I am mixing the play up with another.

He was certainly the better of the two in that series. My list would be the same as yours for the top 3.

Wow. I see that was a well researched article. Not sure how Clarkson was left off the list. We joke about the Phaneuf contract on here often, but I cannot think of a worse deal than Clarkson's on any Canadian team right now. Comments section was entertaining though.
