No. I watch the nights a lot. He is not the type of player we need.

@Scotty_8 Ferraro predicts he will be a #2.
4 days, 13 hours ago on Game Review: Game #31, Maple Leafs 6 vs. Anaheim Ducks 2
@Yaknowwhat @Archie Vanlanda @peterbleafs @B_Leaf I thought he played really well last night. One time his defensive coverage was late and it lead to a a goal. Other then that he was excellent.
@Yaknowwhat @peterbleafs @B_Leaf He must have been better last night as I only saw you get frustrated with him once on here last night.
@Cameron19 @Alec Brownscombe Depends on the talent coming in and the change in strategy about what type of players they are picking.
@Waxer13 @Mind Bomb @Archie Vanlanda @Anthony Petrielli They won't trade him...sorry.
5 days, 8 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Ducks in town
@Mind Bomb @Archie Vanlanda @Anthony Petrielli Just depends on who they are willing to part with.
@Mind Bomb @Anthony Petrielli Seriously Martin Hanzal would be a great piece for us.
@Cameron19 @Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe All defenders get beat wide occasionally in this league.

@Cameron19 @Archie Vanlanda @BrandonCheema He has had some bone head plays this year. I also think he has lots of potential. He is a very interesting players in that regard. It is so hard to judge what side of the coin he will end up being. Even if his offense doesn't pan out he could be a great puck moving defense man and with his skating he has the potential to be good defensively. On the other hand if he doesn't get his head on straight pretty soon those major gaffs are going to be the end of him here.
@Cameron19 @BrandonCheema Healthy hips + Barb Underhill + Dion + buying into system by most of the team = a better Cody

@Cameron19 @Jmessih @Archie Vanlanda Agreed.
1 week, 2 days ago on Game Review: Game #28, Toronto Maple Leafs 2 vs. Detroit Red Wings 1 (SO)
@Jmessih @Archie Vanlanda Is it a keeper leauge?
@Jmessih What type of league is it?
@Yaknowwhat @Archie Vanlanda @deedrag Yes but you were trying to use that one game as an argument against him in the playoffs. I just don't think the way it ended was his fault. His playoff performance was excellent overall.
@Yaknowwhat @deedrag To blame that loss on James is ridiculous.
@B_Leaf @Yaknowwhat Until his offense picks up I think puck moving defenseman is a better label if he needs one.
@MaxwellHowe @Archie Vanlanda @Yaknowwhat That is the kind of contract that scares me.
@sniperstar @Archie Vanlanda @Yaknowwhat Perfect I really hope that happens. I am a big Jake fan.
@Yaknowwhat Its all about the cap agreed. How do you manage a cap well? You need players who play above their contract. Frason is about to sign the biggest deal of his career. One that he will probably never live up to. Unless you get Franson on a deal, or short term its not good cap management. The Gardiner contract isn't looking the greatest right now either.
@BPsotka @B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda Definitely a risk reward type trade.

@B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda Just looking at draft rankings I see six Cs int he top 10. Mitch Marner is one of them and I would not draft him. Having seen him play a fair amount in London he is not the type of player we need.
@B_Leaf Tempting. How far doe adding Kes and Gards and JIm to the Yotes move them up the standings?
@B_Leaf @Archie Vanlanda @Anthony Petrielli @ProfessorRance Have to be honest I don't watch a lot of Arizona games.
@Mitch_S2 @Archie Vanlanda I feel like they already made their moves defensively. He already tried to reshape the D and will give it some time. Might have forwards he is willing to move.
@Mitch_S2 Now you are talking.
@Mitch_S2 @Archie Vanlanda Opening doors for them to play for Dallas not trade them away.
@B_Leaf @Anthony Petrielli @ProfessorRance OEL -14 this year. Yandle -3. Take +- for what you will.
@Mind Bomb @Archie Vanlanda @Mitch_S2 Ya that would have been a great pick-up. Does anyone watch enough Malries to know how Loov and Neilsson are doing?
@Mitch_S2 I don't think Dallas has any young defenders they would be willing to give up. Any young defensman that we need already has to be ready to play in the NHL. We have lots of young dmen who are progressing to that point no need to bring on anymore. We need an NHL dman now. Dallas' D-core is in awful shape. They have no one to trade.
@Cameron19 @Zep2 For that centre core a huge amount of payroll being eaten up is well worth it.

@mr_hanie Sometimes its the forwards that are the issue getting the puck out of our zone. A lot of the time really.

@Yaknowwhat Buffalo has a lot of young high end defensive draft talent. I doubt they would be interested in Gards. I would probably do that trade though and I see a lot more good in Gards than most people around here.

Good one randy
2 weeks, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #24, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Dallas Stars (7:30pm, TSN4)
@Cameron19 @Archie Vanlanda @Xxxxxnew It would be nice to get him without much inflation on his contract.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Leafs Notebook – December 2
@Cameron19 @Xxxxxnew Michalek would be a good fit on second pair. Is he a righty or lefty?
@philthethrill What happened to MacDonald? I know the contact was high but he was a good player on the island.

@DeclanK @colino17 All I want for Christmas is a match up centre.

3 weeks, 3 days ago on Game Review: Game #22, Pittsburgh Penguins 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3 (OT)
@Anthony Petrielli @MaxwellHowe All GMs do it. Its part of the game. it just happens. Deal with it.
@mcloki @MaxwellHowe @Potcy I'm greedy for multiple playoff runs too!
@dlb Mad @Archie Vanlanda I understand your points, although your not saving any salary switching JVR to O'Rielly. I just want a properly built team and I don't think we can achieve that through trades.
Wow Matt Martin had 13 hits last night.
@ProfessorRance @phaneufoundlander It's the three years that hurts.
@dlb Mad @Archie Vanlanda My point is if we can't go from where we are to a contender then what is the point of trading to get a little better. If we believe we can't make a contender based on what we have we should be looking to make trades that free cap space bring in picks prospects and make us worse so that we can get better.
If we think we can trade our way into contendorship I am all for it. I just don't see it.
@dlb Mad Do those trades give you a line up you think is a contender?
@Mind Bomb @Archie Vanlanda I wouldn't either if I hadn't heard it with my own ears.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Game Day in Pittsburgh
Wow O DOG just made a good point.
@dlb Mad Do you think that is a contending line up?

@DeclanK @Yaknowwhat I have been having to refresh occasionally for the last few days. Seems ok right now.
