What Are The Leafs Thinking

from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail,

Antropov, 27, is often injured and has seldom contributed for elongated stretches. He skated onto the Toronto scene in 1999-2000, and in the past four National Hockey League seasons he has missed 83 of a possible 328 games he has been eligible to play in because of injury. Yet his truncated participation and mediocre production resulted in his salary being doubled.
The likeable Kazak has never scored more than 18 goals in a season. Heck, Jeff O’Neill scored 20 goals this past season. Is Ferguson going to double O’Neill’s $1.5-million salary, too? Not likely.
Sure, Antropov has played on the right side of captain Mats Sundin for a couple of years now. But that doesn’t justify Antropov’s new deal. The last time we checked the Leafs haven’t won many playoff series with him.
