@hometeem @Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19  Don't really care about his point totals exactly because of Gardiner/Phaneuf/Rielly. Just speaks to his skill level/passing ability/vision.

@Cameron19 @Anthony Petrielli  23:17/gm vs. 19:24... Big difference. Edler has point totals Gunnar can only dream of.

@Cameron19  Hoping Vancouver would have interest in doing a Gunnarsson++ for Edler type move.

@Leafs2 Isles1 @CanuckUKinToronto  Goalies don't usually bring back value either. At least not immediate value.

@dlb meh  Yeah. I think in the big picture if they got rid of Gleason and added one real 20+ per night top 4 their D would be fine. Forwards/system has to help them too.

Morgan Rielly is a tank reminder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1JX0UH-X00

@dlb meh @Anthony Petrielli  Yeah when you watch other teams, Gunnarsson doesn't really get beat that much for league average. I noted above he rarely gets beat which is true. His problems usually stem from puck handling and rotating (hip!!). Rielly just has to put it altogether --which he is-- not worried about his tools at all. Has everything and the box.

@dlb meh @Anthony Petrielli  Yeah Dec and I say from the blue line in. He's unbelievable at skating it up ice... Just needs to figure out how to finish off his rushes once inside the OZ. If he could ever develop a one timer too....


Last year this time I was saying he had a problem getting beat wide, but he's really fixed that. He's very good at reading the play defensively and gets his stick into lanes.

@rustynail @Anthony Petrielli @NotTheCanucksnaphook  When I was at TML-BOS, Lucic tried to take him wide and drive his shoulder through him on his way to the net and Rielly just pivoted, got in his way, and stood him up. Rielly knocked the puck away and the Leafs turned up ice, and Lucic gave Rielly this "Wow" look.

@Cameron19 @dlb meh  I still think goals are valuable and Lupul will score quite a few of them.

@NotTheCanucksnaphook  They are grouped together because they are fast, not that big, and are buddies... But they aren't really that similar.

@wendelsfist @Anthony Petrielli @hometeem @Xxxxxnew  Most teams are always looking to add C depth... More importantly, what teams would be interested in Bozak?

6 hours, 45 minutes ago on Toronto Maple Leafs: Buy Low, Sell High

Reply

@hometeem @Anthony Petrielli @Xxxxxnew  Well if he submits a list of 12 teams he WONT go to then the Leafs have 18 teams to choose from as opposed to 12. Not a massive difference, but definitely a difference.

@Xxxxxnew  Bozak one is either a list of 12-14 teams he wont go to, or will go to. Difficult to find out which one it is.

@wendelsway1 @Anthony Petrielli  Yeah they aren't nearly as bad as some people think. They have some good kids ready to fill out the bottom of the roster... They have to start trusting them though. Hopefully add one D-man and one C too.

@Rick_Vaives_slapshot @Anthony Petrielli  You play them like Vancouver used to play the Sedins. Pretty well offense only.

Reply

@Yan28 @Anthony Petrielli  That's fair. I like his scoring too to be honest. I'd be pretty interested in reuniting Lupul and Kessel and using JVR on a great two-way line. That'd be my perfect world scenario, I think.

@MaxwellHowe  If they had a L2 of Lupul-Kadri-Kulemin all year next season my feeling is that they'd be very good.

@Yan28  That's the risk. If he plays though he's going to produce.

@Great Dane @Anthony Petrielli  Yeah I don't think it's low, but I bet if they moved him in a deal he'd be the best player getting moved of everyone involved.

Reply

@MaxwellHowe  If Lupul bounces back with 25G+, 55PTS+ they are going to get a lot more in a year and get the value of that good year.. I'd wait for that. Especially over a 2nd/3rd just to open up cap space. 

8 hours, 9 minutes ago on Toronto Maple Leafs: Buy Low, Sell High

Reply

@Great Dane @Anthony Petrielli  Hahah well yeah. But the point here was "what is the market going to dictate they get for these guys right now" not "if they get a sweet offer should they do it?"

@Mind Bomb  Yeah I'd agree. Feels like Lupul is on the outs. 

8 hours, 13 minutes ago on Toronto Maple Leafs: Buy Low, Sell High

@MaxwellHowe  I don't think they are in cap trouble so it wasn't a big concern to me. They should be filling out almost their entire B6 with kids next season.

@Great Dane @Anthony Petrielli  Yeah but that's not selling low, they'd be getting a crap load!

@CanuckUKinToronto  Looked at it a bit but figured with the possibility of retaining salary or getting back another big contract in return I could be dealing with a lot of hypothetical situations. But I get what you're saying. 

8 hours, 16 minutes ago on Toronto Maple Leafs: Buy Low, Sell High

Reply

@Great Dane @Anthony Petrielli  Yeah that damage is done. I would have shopped the market on Phaneuf before signing that deal (maybe they did, who knows). But for now I'd wait for a rebound year then look to move him. No point of trading him this summer just to do it. Hope be bounces back and if you still want to move him, do it then. That's just good management.
