So, with a CBA hopefully on the way, Burkie on his 'chihuahua' leash, what moves can we expect from the Leafs in the next couple of months?

Uh, who says the CBA's done?

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "otherwise you wouldn't have come here."

Assuming it does get done and there's a season?

We don't know until there is an actual CBA to read through...or hint of what they're even talking about.

Hopefully a goalie will be on the way. Thats really what the Leafs need. Can't rely on two inexperienced guys for a season again.

This is going to be such a short season, if it gets started at all, that maybe JR will play well for all of it.

I think the goalie issue is the most important one for Burkie but Luongo is the best available one and he comes with a lot of baggage.

Well then it depends entirely on the terms of the new CBA.

Honestly there's no way to accurately predict or even propose reasonably moves until there's a CBA.

Found a couple of stories, and neither paint a good picture for a season, they have been feeding us this faint hope thing way too long and we as fans are buying it.....proof! We're still on NHL.com right! Anyways here's the story links:There is a video too where they call Jacobs a D**K lol!
*******************************************************
Winnipeg Jets representation at a recent NHL Board of Governors meeting piped up to say it was opposed to engaging in a long, bloody lockout sure to stymie their franchise’s momentum and hurt the game of hockey.

It wasn’t Winnipeg owner Mark Chipman, but rather one of the alternate governors representing the Jets.

Bruins Principal Owner and Chairman of the Board of Governors Jeremy Jacobs answered by reprimanding the Winnipeg representative as one of the “new kids on the block” and informed him that he would know when he was allowed to speak in the NHL board room.

The other is:
*****************************************************
Here we have a situation where one owner of a powerful, money-making franchise (James Dolan of the Rangers) can’t even get into the negotiating room with the players, while the league’s sole billion-dollar franchise is barred from printing money because of a divide in “make-whole” demands and player contracting rights that, in the big picture, don’t really impact them.

How inefficient and undemocratic of a system is it where the approval of only eight owners is needed to continue the shutdown of the entire business? This woeful hurdle to common sense takes nearly all the power of the NHL out of the hands of its billionaire owners and their well-to-do teams and into the lap of the commissioner and his small group of staunch, stubborn supporters.

It’s time for the Torontos, Montreals and New Yorks of the league to stand up and toss the weight of their word around. It’s embarrassing enough the NHL is going through another work stoppage, but the fact the behemoths can be shut out like this takes the small-time, hokey-ness of this league to a whole new level.

I refuse to hold my breath on this one and will see you all when this mess is over>>>>maybe....maybe I won't be back on this particular site. There are other Leafs sites. Anyways Merry Christmas to all, I may be on parts of today.

John Collins has done his job well. Quite well, in fact. He arrived in Nov. 2006 after 15 years in various positions with the National Football League, and revolutionized the NHL's image and culture — a driving force in the League's $3.3 billion in reported revenue in the last year.
Those revenues will plummet off a cliff in 2012-13, thanks to the lockout, and there's no telling what the recovery might entail. Commissioner Gary Bettman's third work stoppage has brought the League's momentum to a skidding halt, with the good vibes of unprecedented growth replaced by bitterness and embarrassment for the game.
In other words: The lockout has managed to harm, undermine or completely destroy many of John Collins's accomplishments and innovations, while leaving the League's COO trying to keep sponsors from revolting.
Because of that, there's a chance this lockout could cost the NHL arguably its most important behind the scenes player.

Multiple sources have confirmed a report by Dave Pagnotta of The Fourth Period on Monday that Collins "isn't a happy camper" at this point in the lockout, and that could mean his eventual exit from the League.
(Collins declined comment for this story through an NHL spokesperson.)
