The Leafs, in their continuing effort to buy Pintos when they can afford Cadillacs, signed Bryan Marchment to "shore up" their defense. Never mind the fact that Marchment is one of the biggest no-talent goons in the NHL.

I'm seriously wishing I had become a Detroit fan years ago.

Is Marchment, at 34 years old, part of the "youth movement" that Leafs' management has been talking about lately?

I just can't figure out what's going on in the Buds' front office. Last year they're desperate to sign free agents. This year they say they won't sign free agents because they don't want to give out long term contracts because of the likelihood of a lockout in 2004. Then they say they'll build through the trade route, then they say they're embarking on a youth movement. Then they sign an aged free agent like Marchment after letting the far more talented Glen Wesley go. And all the while GM Pat Quinn is in vancouver, not Toronto where he should be.

That makes less sense than a Brian Burke press conference.

I suppose you'd rather have the knee-hunting Marchment on your side then against him. Hopefully he'll rot in the press box in TO.

I think from the way Leaf management has been talking over the past year, they are committed to just stay the course until the CBA in 2004, and then plot again once that's over and done with. The ML organization is extremely bureaucratic and decisions are made with the interest of an investment, not as a sports team. I think 3 of the 9 seats on the board go to a teachers' union in Ontario.

I think it's fairly obvious that they don't care about 2003-4...if they make the playoffs they'll be happy enough. Sad, really.

at least the Rangers didn't sign him. We just overpay for ex-avs defensemen - did the NYR not learn from Sylvain Lefebvre ?
