Is Don Waddell the worst GM in the league?

If not now, he will be if Kovalchuk isn't traded before the Olympic break. Can you even imagine Kovalchuk getting badly injured at the Olympics?

Two 1st round draft picks and a second round pick... is what it took to land Kessel from the Bruins.

Was the price too steep?

"Tanking" is all about perspective, interpretation and realistic expectations.  It is terminology on drugs.
Lets look at it from three different angles and what it should mean.

Matt Stajan is on pace for 19 goals, 41 assists and 60 points in 71 games played. His trade value would have to be at its highest, would you trade him?

Would a great leader not go play hockey for a contending team for 2 months if it meant "his team" would gain significant assets... where he could potentially win a Stanley Cup then still return in the summer to his home team? Apparently not, instead he would stick around with all his buddies for an inevitable failed playoff run, piss around all summer,  all the way through training camp and the first 3rd of the season. Then after (perhaps intentionally) wearing out his welcome at home, sign as a free agent rental player for an entirely different team. Seems like an easy way out to me. What was there that was admirable about Captain Mats sticking around last year for the Maple Leafs failed playoff run and resulting crap draft position?

Stempniak had a great preseason,,, any poolies surely noticed him at the top of preseason scoring charts with 12 pts, second only to then teammate Andy McDonald.   Though the preseason is only a small measure of what is to come and likely didn't convince many poolies that he was worth drafting outside the later rounds he was certainly on the radar.

"Why shouldn't we put another team in the best and biggest market in the world?" says one anonymous NHL governor.

It is an interesting idea,,, more interesting then putting a team in Hamilton that is for sure....  though I believe a team could be supported in Quebec, Hamiliton, or Winnipeg,,,  a second team in Toronto would be something else.  Though I don't believe the Leafs would welcome the team, if it were possible and it did happen I'd support the idea,,, I think it would be great and I believe Toronto could support the second team with flying colors.  Heck of a rivalry between the two teams would be fun. I'd still be a Leafs fan myself but would follow both team.

The Maple Leafs have finally come to a productive turning point, that being the ownership and management in agreement that the team needs to be rebuilt properly. Take a look at the Edmonton oilers, Phoenix Coyotes, LA Kings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals, or the Montreal Candiens as teams with varying exact strategies but effective rebuilds or rebuilds in progress. These are the examples that embarass the Leafs franchise which is lacking a lineup of bluechip prospects due to poor drafting and trading away assets over the years for veterans in return for failed playoff runs.
