:dunno: When are the Leafs going to smell the coffee & ditch this waste of skin? Every Leaf fan has asked this question.They should have unloaded him to the Flyers a few years back when Clarke was interested in him.Now he`s no use to anybody.He`s injury prone & is invisible on the ice.

I don't disagree but I don't think Ferg can get anyone to take him right now.

Every year there's that hope that he'll actually do something and every year we see the same player out there.

Does anyone know how long his contract is?

The question is"Why did Fergie resign him?" Just cut him free & he can go play for the Whitby Dunlops.I believe it was a 1 year deal.

It was.

And he's no where to be seen because yet again, he's injured. His injury opened up a spot for Jeff O'Neill though, and I don't want to see that spot replaced by Nik anytime soon... or at all.

That's forsure!

I'm glad it's only a one-year deal, maybe'll he'll work out in trade somehow or else he's cap room next summer.

I'm not sure if the Leafs could get anything in return, but I think that if they don't tend him a qualifying offer, he automatically becomes a UFA.

I thought they were going to take that route this year, because clearly Antro isn't good enough to beat out anyone on currently on the starting roster.

But then JFJ, you know.... What goes on in that guy's head? :dunno:

Antropov developed but if u can get rid of him and get a better player, by all means, do it for sure.

Are you guys serious? Antropov has been one of our best players after his injury and has played very well under Maurice. Correct me if I'm wrong, but he was only 2 goals away from being a 20 goal scorer. If you ask me, he should stay for next season, and prove what he is worth to this hockey club.

I agree as long as he's cheap, he should stay and continue to contribute for key goals and streaks.

It's the same thing every year.

Some of these posts were made months ago, while Antropov was still his usual inconsitent and injury-proned self, and as usual he only came on in the last part of the season and suddenly changes the minds of many, re-igniting hope in his development.

It happens every year.

Not me though. I don't know about everyone else now, but last year my decision was no, and this year, after seeing things go practically the same way (again), my answer remains no.

I don't want him back at all. I'm done with this same routine with Nik Antropov, and I know there are better players out there to fill the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th line roster spots.

Unfortunately, next year when (not if, but when) he's back with the Leafs again, it will be the same thing.

He'll make us wonder why he's back on this team or even in the NHL, and then suddenly he'll start coming up strong near the end of the season.

I realize that you have your doubts about Antropov and his work ethic throughout the entire season. However after his injury he has done many impressive things that he hasn’t done in the past seasons with the Leafs.
I also don’t remember Antropov being as successful at the end of last year, as he has been this year. Therefore, I wouldn’t mind seeing him play next season, and see what he can bring to the team next.
