@Forever17 @Anthony Petrielli @DeclanK Good C's are good C's. Leafs have Holland (6'2) and Gauthier (6'5) too.

@Great Dane @Anthony Petrielli @Potcy @hometeem What is the argument here? That they shouldn't try to make the playoffs? Just blow it up completely?

@hometeem @Anthony Petrielli @Great Dane @Potcy Of course it's an indicator of progress, when you drafted top 10 last year. You're always either going up or down, no middle ground.

@hometeem @Anthony Petrielli @Great Dane @Potcy LA was two years... But both are completely different teams. Kopitar and Toews are what, 2/3 top C's in hockey. At worst top 5?

@Mind Bomb @Anthony Petrielli @MaxwellHowe They should still be looking to trade Clarkson. People are kidding themselves in the big picture when they say "oh he's better this year." He is, but still not a $5M+ player and he has 5 more years left on his deal.


Phaneuf is a tougher question though.

@Great Dane @Anthony Petrielli @Potcy Cause it's a sign of progress. Also, the top team in the East right now is MTL and I'd play that team any day of the week without worry. 


But, they should be thinking more long-term unless something falls in their lap.

@gda @Anthony Petrielli @Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe Did he have hockey IQ when he ripped it up down the stretch last year? Or when he led his rookie D class in scoring??

@Potcy That's probably a conversation they have leading up to the deadline. "I'm fine with making the long-term move and trading for assets, but understand we might not make the playoffs anymore." Group decision in that.

@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli @Xxxxxnew I've seen Chelios at Marlies games scouting, he's working his way up the old fashioned way. Shanny had never worked with an NHL team and is now president of the most expensive one in the league. He's probably pissed.

@Xxxxxnew “The one shot I’d take at Shanny is — you be the judge — if you like politicians, then Shanny’s your guy. If you don’t, well, then you don’t like him. I’ll leave it at that.”

@MaxwellHowe @Anthony Petrielli @Nylander88 Up until this season the Ducks weren't deep at C at all though. They pushed Holland to be the 2C/3C in a combo with Koivu last season and he wasn't cutting it.

Interesting thing about Panik is that I figured his numbers would be boosted from all the ice time he gets during blowouts, but his score close numbers are actually better than his overall numbers by a decent gap... That's intriguing.

@penchantforbeingmuppets Yeah it has always been good.. Franson's success hasn't been extremely surprising, although to the eye it's pretty surprising that two big, slow defensemen are playing well together vs. tough opp.

@dlb Mad Yeah they do skate themselves into corners on occasion, but learning on the job is better than watching Phaneuf's/Franson's inability to carry it up ice at all and other teams just waiting for the drop pass to Kessel. Phaneuf is usually the puck carrier, and he's just getting burned now regularly.

One of the trade options EDM is looking at for David Perron is with Columbus Blue Jackets.EDM focus maybe on center Artem Anisimov. #TSN

@djamon @Anthony Petrielli If I could get a 2nd for any of the forwards and I can't bring them back, they would all be gone, as of right now. If I think a Marlie could replace one of them and I don't want them back, I'd take anything.


I like Winnik and Santorelli, but the Leafs got them from the bargain bin and you can find guys like this every summer. 


Franson is a little more complicated. He's their best PP player and has helped Phaneuf a lot. Good business is probably signing or cutting bait no matter what. Can't let him walk for free. Could also try to re-sign him after the season but that's risky and you can't afford to have egg on your face with this one.

@djamon @MaxwellHowe It depends on the player and what you can get in return. Still have to think more long-term than short-term with this group.

@MaxwellHowe @Anthony Petrielli @drummond Letting a guy like Booth walk for free means nothing, but can't do the same with Franson. Bet Winnik has nice value, too.
