A Few Hockey Notes On A Sunday Morning

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

-  If you do the math, the Leafs will be paying Daniel Winnik, Mike Santorelli, David Booth and Petri Kontiola $5 million for the coming season, which translates to half a million less than the Florida Panthers are paying David Bolland.

- I hope this isn’t true but I keep hearing that Joe Bowen won’t be doing any Leafs games on television this season. Radio only, I’m told, for the voice of the Leafs.

I watched Mike Santorelli & David Booth with Panthers, both had one good year. Booth mainly because he played that one year on a line with Horton and Weiss. After Richards knocked him into fantasy land he was never the same…As long as there is cap room I am happy an owner is willing to spend money to get players on my team. Some teams have to overpay because of how bad they were or where they are located. Not all teams are great and in an area where the player or his family want to live. Sometimes a team has to offer extra cash to get them. Good for the ownership that want to win enough to open their bank account to do it. If David Bolland stays healthy and make a contribution he may be the difference to get the Panthers into the playoffs and then they will make the money back and get more people in the BB&T Center. Steve Simmons is trying to justify the Leafs somewhat weak UFA signings but the fact is I would rather have David Bolland than Daniel Winnik, Mike Santorelli, David Booth and Petri Kontiola.
