    Lou Lamoriello made it real clear and hard that he don't play. During our trade deadline, he made it real clear that this is the defense it stays. We don't need no otha suckas around. We hard already. We got them twerkers and bouncers. Polak - Zaitsev - Rielly - Gardiner - Dermott - Hainsey - Carrick and some otha suckas. We truly are there already. The message was real clear: Now get this: Psycologically it makes us stay hard and strong. We didn't make the same move some other catty tender type teams made: They got some other sucka for them like mcdonagh or like some other fool like shattenkirk last season or like Phaneuf etc. That tells the other d-men already there : That you guys aren't good enough, se we got this d-sucka for y'all. He'll make y'all better. So nah, Lou didn't make that same stupid mistake with us. He told them and showed them: Y'all is the D. Y'all is ready and y'all don't need no otha suckas. So y'all ain't getting none. Stay out. Y'all IS THE D. You will win it for us. Do it.

    The only thing I got out of this is a bunch of: 'y'all' and 'suckas' can drown out any point being made.

    I tried to read this, I really did. But I honestly have no clue what point you are trying to make.

    For those who didn't understand the point I broke it down as best as I could:

We hard already. We got them twerkers and bouncers. Polak - Zaitsev - Rielly - Gardiner - Dermott - Hainsey - Carrick and some otha suckas. We truly are there already.

    Why is there any surprise? The Leafs couldn't trade their way to greatness at TDL. Does anybody really think that if they got McDonagh it would really helped that Leafs THAT this year and next, especially if it had to match the package that Tampa paid.
    Leafs are just going to be like other teams....improvement within., and in the Leafs case, thinking the improvement will lead to greater on ice success in 2020 and beyond.

    Exactly lou was sending a message to the league. He was putting every other team on notice that his defense was his defense. Clearly this message was heard by each and every team in the nhl.

    This is worse to read than the terrible trade proposals on the main board. You made more sense with the thread title than the whole OP. Next time put suckas in the title so I know not to open the thread.

    Or maybe there was no deal to be had without gutting the forward core..?

    If you really think they didn't try to improve the defensive core at the deadline then idk man

    OP - Lou provided a vote of confidence to his blueline, that they were his guys.

    Me (quietly, from behind the couch) - ....... he tried hard to get McDonaugh. It's public knowledge.

    Also I've said it multiple times on this board, people need to be really careful about the racial microagressions and appropriations. It's offensive to those of colour (like myself) on this board.

    He made it clear that this is our group until the off season. He made it clear the cost of upgrading was not worth it to us right now.

    That's about it.
