@Cameron19 @Anthony Petrielli @bear19 @loomx Yeah. So you're looking at decent young player+2nd+probably some salary because EStaal is making 8.25M (!!!).

@bear19 @loomx @Cameron19 Probably have to look somewhere between what Kesler netted vs. what Spezza did.

@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 I wouldn't even trade Kadri straight up for EStaal.
19 hours, 24 minutes ago on Friday Mashup: Chara out 4-6 weeks, Leafs play Boston Saturday
@Cameron19 One of their "key" future building blocks is Ryan Murphy yet they wont take Kadri in exchange for their aging, overpaid center? Welp.

@Burtonboy Leivo back to the right side, eh

@Pent_House @Dogger Almost none of those guys will be able to replace Gardiner. Gardiner was in the NHL at 21 which is the age or younger than the guys you have listed (except Finn).

@MTTK83 @Anthony Petrielli Declan is going to be there too. Enjoy!

@Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli More fans (price and seats), plus more opportunity to cheer at a Raps game.

@Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli Went to game one last year and it was unbelievable

@wiski @Anthony Petrielli @LN-093 @wendelsfist If they actually plan on changing it they have to do something that will create a stir. No easy way out.

@LN-093 @Anthony Petrielli @wendelsfist Just shut down the sushi services, etc. 5 minutes before the period is about to begin. Sounds pretty simple to me. There is in-seat service anyway.
@wendelsfist "Hey Dion how do you feel about the lower bowl being half empty to start periods?" Because yes, he's going to be honest in answering that.
@Pent_House @Anthony Petrielli Ha, I actually get this a lot. Guess I have a generic looking face.
@Pent_House @Anthony Petrielli Can't even tell you the last time I've even been on an elevator man
@Pent_House Yeah.... You didn't see me on an elevator!!
@LeafsGuru @Anthony Petrielli @mcloki @DeclanK @ingy56 Well if they ignore us asking them to take it down...

@LeafsGuru @Anthony Petrielli @mcloki @DeclanK @ingy56 Embarrassing for Ryerson University, if you ask me. They really pride themselves on their journalism program.
@mcloki @DeclanK @ingy56 I am not sure "Courtesy of" implies that. It's still plagiarism regardless.
@lilgrnmen17 Still watching the team and following along all the way in Prague, have to respect that! Cheers.

@Dogger Can't do that when he's playing top pair like this and the rest of the D is looking like it is.
2 days, 3 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bruins Saturday
@Doorman @Anthony Petrielli Ha, seems like some decent back and forth to me. I get both sides, but don't want to get into it either way.
2 days, 19 hours ago on Leafs-Sens Wednesday Night Game Postponed
Don't want to get into a political or ideology debate, just wanted to pop in and say I hope everyone is okay because I know we have readers in Ottawa. Even if you're not from Ottawa though, please stay safe.
@djamon @Anthony Petrielli really sloppy with the puck tonight with some poor giveaways especially for a veteran. Looks like he's a long ways away from finding his form at the moment.
3 days, 14 hours ago on Game Review: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs 5 vs. New York Islanders 2
@penchantforbeingmuppets @Anthony Petrielli Nah, not worried about him. First period felt like he had a different partner every shift, that's why they need to go to 6 D, and get a rotation going.
@penchantforbeingmuppets @Anthony Petrielli Got worked on the wall a few times, had a couple of poor giveaways. He looked like he didn't have any energy tonight... Lost some races to the corner.
Rielly had a pretty under the radar poor game, and played under 15 minutes. Percy under 14 minutes. Robidas struggled too and played under 16. Eventually something will have to give here.
@Mcost61 @Burtonboy Would get rid of that contract in a heart beat still no questions asked.
4 days, 22 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Taking on the toughs
@ProfessorRance @Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy No... Franson is a pending UFA while Perron has another year left on a good deal.
@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli Oh yeah, Dec and I drool about him all the time. So hard to get the puck off of him. Put that guy on a line with Naz and Lupul, drop Winnik down the line-up, to start trending better.
@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli Five games in and the team hasn't won a game? It's probably because he's actually hard on pucks and EDM doesn't know what that looks like so they got confused and sat him.
@Burtonboy Wow.. Didn't realize he was playing that little. What a waste.
@Great Dane @Anthony Petrielli @ingy56 @gottabe_KD @Yaknowwhat Of course... But have to start somewhere. I just wouldn't say "nothing" has changed.
5 days, 2 hours ago on Leafs Notebook – October 20
@Great Dane @ingy56 @gottabe_KD @Yaknowwhat I'd say they dump the puck in a lot less. Have gotten rid of wingers at the far blue line deflecting pucks in deep.
@mickster To an extent... Have to play to each individual's strength but also demand more from them in their performance and positioning (to your point). You don't get a lot of teaching time in the NHL because of the tight schedule and travel.
@MaxwellHowe Or Erik Karlsson to make it more modern day
@Optimistic Otis @djamon I don't know what to tell you other than the data says differently. I can show you video of him stepping up. The Avalanche game especially he did an excellent job.
@Jay_Berg Still early. Would be more optimistic if the Leafs didn't retain salary and give STL a pick. Let's see how Gunnarsson does when he returns to their line-up.

@Cloud09 I wont indicate who an exit is occurring against on a regular basis but if I notice someone is doing well against a good player/line I'll note it. Will probably look at other sources for that information and collaborate it vs. recording it myself.
@TML__fan @Anthony Petrielli It is very difficult to automate in hockey, although I'm sure it will be figured out. Unique exits/entries/whatever in every hockey game.
@TML__fan My guess is most of these "analytics" bloggers hired are bean-counters on the teams that hired them, save for Dellow and Tulsky, and Mehta.

@quinnesq @Anthony Petrielli Good point on the soft chip ins. I alluded to it but didn't flat out say it-- he rips the puck in hard and his teammates don't have a chance to retrieve those.
As you implied, feels like sometimes he just takes his foot off the because he's pedal scared of getting caught. We've seen his toe drag on occasion, but never really driving the net hard, which he should be able to do with his hands, skating, low center of gravity and skill.
@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli @Yan28 Their head coach is on the Leafs bench now too. Did Ashton do something off-ice that we are unaware of????
@Yan28 @Anthony Petrielli Yeah he's had a rough start, but pouring over the game tape you see that he's playing with wingers that can't get the puck out or do much of anything (Kozun was decent on the forecheck that's about it at 5v5). Holland needs to be better, but they have to try giving him a shot in the arm too. He's had some occasional nice shifts with players higher in the line-up.
