OUT WITH THE NEW, IN WITH THE OLD

JFJ has left the building. No surprise there. JFJ getting fired was accepted and really it was down to the when. Really he was fired the minute that douchebag real estate agent in the $3000 suit started flapping his porcelain veneers. Whether JFJ did or didn't do the job and even regardless of the fact that he had to go: (he did) The way in which this was handled made me hang my Leafs head in shame. Perhaps the worst Leafs front office handling since Larry Murphy was let go for future considerations.

What's fair is that JFJ isn't the only guy in a suit at the ACC whose head should roll.

And no offense to Trader Cliff but I think the days of getting Doug Gilmour, Jamie Macoun, Ric Nattress, Rick Wamsley and Kent Manderville for Gary Leeman, Michel Petit, Jeff Reese, Craig Berube, and Alexander Godynyuk are over. There's not a GM in the league that would take that sucker's bet today. How good 'ol Fletch fooled Doug Risebrough that cold January day in 1992 is anyone's guess.

On the rumor front. I just heard Sundin to the Flyers for Jeff Carter and a first round pick in this years draft. But the rumor that keeps persisting is Sundin to the Flames for a package that would include Alex Tanguay.

"As all of our general managers have had, he will have the autonomy and responsibility for all hockey decisions ..."

If true, I would take that Carter deal, although he's an RFA due for a big raise. The Flyers have to move salary for next year.

Fletcher should fired if he trades for Alex Tanguay. He makes what Sundin makes and is one-third the player Sundin is.

One quarter.

I'd like another pick or prospect thrown in on the Carter/Sundin deal,but the Leafs could (and probably will) do much worse by it. Switch Tanguay for Lombardi and some good picks and maybe I could get on board.

for the pic, what is that guy on the right doing? the one wearing lipstick and looking all sweaty? Is he "Speading his legs for Stanley?"

Domi, if I may answer for Norte. That's a picture from Alien 3 when the disgusting, horrible, murderous monster comes and presses it's face up to Ripley's.
