@Greg Fenton @Anthony Petrielli @B_Leaf The point is that those other teams wouldn't make that move, not that the Leafs shouldn't.
1 day, 2 hours ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
@Greg Fenton @Anthony Petrielli @B_Leaf I think everyone knows the Leafs need a 1C. They explored trading Lupul and Dion this summer. That's pretty much where it ends, especially when it comes to getting good value back (IE- not trading Kessel for a 1C stud) to evaluating the core and deciding who to keep.
@Greg Fenton That would be a huge jump.
1 day, 3 hours ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
Thank you for all the nice words. Have been in a meeting and just catching up now.
@B_Leaf I do believe I touched on that though when I said:
"With everything that happened and what they lacked last year, it makes it extremely difficult to evaluate the core that many wanted blown up or at least altered, because they had no support. With the pieces put in place he can now do that."
Tough to judge the best players considering they had zero support elsewhere, which I have hammered for months now.
@Cameron19 Apparently Chicago is going to try and take advantage of their window while Hossa is still good and Toews' and Kane's contract extensions aren't on the cap this year. So don't think they'd trade a top 4 rock for them. Moving Leddy and having 13 forwards to start the year might make more sense for them if that's their mindset.

@Bruffins @Anthony Petrielli
B6 last year being:
Clarkson (I know, I know), and Kulie.

I was saying no team has 6 better bottom six players than Winnik specifically, FYI.
@wiski @Anthony Petrielli @Mind Bomb Pasta cooking contest.
4 days, 3 hours ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@wiski @Anthony Petrielli @Mind Bomb Yeah I saw that pic. Let's have a cook-off.
@Mind Bomb @Anthony Petrielli I'm up north and the weather is muggy, so I decided to pop on for a second. Welp.
Come onto the board to see what's happening... And well... Yeah.
@leafdreamer I think they were debating the value of trading down and whether it was worth it. They love Nylander.

@StanleyB4idieplease It was the other way around. Holik actually said Sundin was the toughest guy in the league to play against.
Holik had a really good career and was a top 10 pick so I wouldn't make that comparison. I don't like player comparisons in general, so I think the hope is that Gauthier's just a solid shutdown guy at C and PKer with very minimal offense, at the moment. 3-4C type, but with a presence.

@Burtonboy Moving the Marlies to Toronto was a big step in my mind. Easy to recruit players and have them in the same city as the big club.

@wendelsway1 It's not bad reading all the nice comments while drinking a coffee of my own!
5 days, 10 hours ago on In conversation with Dave Morrison – Part 3
Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for all the nice comments. Morrison is a really good guy to chat hockey with.
@Jordan29 He wasn't mentioned because nobody thought he was coming here, not because he's some no-name dummy. Anyone who follows the hockey world vs. the Leafs in a bubble knew who Dubas was long before his hiring.

@Waiting4LSC I want to see what happens with Franson and Reimer first because the mix still seems a little off to me. Very happy with what they have done so far though.

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Thanks man. Still two parts to come. We chatted for over an hour and a half.

@mike_84 @Anthony Petrielli 6'2, middle weight fighter, that has some untapped skill.
@silvermaple The answer to that will be in one of the next parts

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. Was reading them on and off throughout the day but I was busy at work so I couldn't take the time to acknowledge them. Appreciate it though.

1 week, 1 day ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
@Bruffins @Anthony Petrielli Hoping for addition by subtraction and that Polak can do some dirty work.
I've been saying this for weeks, but what a nice summer for the Leafs.
@Xxxxxnew @Anthony Petrielli It's a highlight montage. They just started with that for jokes... And they show the apology too.
1 week, 6 days ago on Maple Leafs re-sign Peter Holland to 2-year, $1.55 million deal
@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli @Mind Bomb @mcloki No you're right on the quote. It's just from Sinden.

@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli @Pent_House Top 4 D for $3M.
@Pent_House @Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy A healthy Robidas is still really damn good. Not sure people get that.
McClement, Kulemin, McLaren, Orr, Smithson, Smith, Bodie/11 forwards.
@Cameron19 @Anthony Petrielli Yeah, and he's one of the highest paid players in that league. That is not the norm. The Leafs just have a lot of money and spend it unwisely.
2 weeks ago on Steve Spott on Sportsnet 590
@Cameron19 @Anthony Petrielli The NHL salary is all that matters man. Or else he's just back on waivers again.
@Cameron19 @Anthony Petrielli He'd be one of the highest paid players in the league at 600K+.
@Cameron19 @Anthony Petrielli I would be more likely to claim a guy making 600K on a one-way deal (which is what he would have got), then a guy making 850K on a two-way. Especially if I was Carolina.
@Cameron19 @Anthony Petrielli I'm not sold Ashton is an NHLer though, and it's not good business to give a guy money just because you can.
@Cameron19 Yes, but if I'm the Leafs I'm thinking I can just get him right back on waivers down the road and only a team desperate for a player would claim Ashton in the first place. Most teams want to give their own guys in house a shot first and foremost.
That 850K is going to scare off teams as opposed to a one-way deal where he'd be making less in the NHL.
2 weeks ago on Matt Frattin on TSN 1050
@Yan28 It's a one-way for Holland. Ashton is on a two-way.
@Cloud09 @Anthony Petrielli He's around them everyday man. Travels with them everywhere. Talks to the players off the record.
