@Hollandaise Those type of free agent signings depend on who gets moved in the off season. Also I would only sign them if they were short term contract. 2 years max.
2 days, 5 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bailey set to debut, Marlies within a point of playoffs, lottery date set
@Bruffins There are a few options in free agency that are sturdy d-men.
4 days, 4 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@Alec Brownscombe @Archie Vanlanda @gjdevlin As if the players even had a choice in the matter...ridiculous.
4 days, 23 hours ago on Dylan Strome wins the OHL scoring title
@gjdevlin Wearing a cage makes you weak?
@MaxwellHowe Take some solace in the fact that we will be bad for a while and hopefully have a chance at the top centres in drafts past this one.
5 days, 6 hours ago on Game 73 Scoring Chances: Senators 5 vs. Maple Leafs 3
@MaxwellHowe @Archie Vanlanda I certainly like the idea of Jagr.
1 week ago on Game 72 – SJS 4, TOR 1 – An even worse start for Toronto
If we do win the lottery and McDavid, who do you play on his line? FA signings and trade are welcome in this scenario.
@peterbleafs I would really like to get him with a second pick early. I just don't see a way of getting one that high.
1 week, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #73, Toronto Maple Leafs vs San Jose Sharks (7:30pm, TSN4)
@peterbleafs @zoidbergman A few good weeks and he has turned a corner? If that was one of our prospects it would just be a hot streak and not enough sample size.
@MLHS_Brown @Archie Vanlanda I didn't suggest they would be worse then they are now. Simply that they would still be awful. You just don't throw a first year player into a situation like that. I wouldn't even do that to CMD.

@MLHS_Brown I think going JVR Eichel Kessel in his first year in the league is a sure fire way to hurt his development. That line would get destroyed defensively.
@Ron Tugnut @Archie Vanlanda @Cameron19 Interesting article thanks.
1 week, 5 days ago on Game 70 Scoring Chances: Canucks 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Cameron19 @Archie Vanlanda Does he shoot right and play on the right side?
@Cameron19 @Archie Vanlanda He's averaging 20 mins a night and is a plus. Seems like he may be getting this to go his way now.
@Cameron19 Has Larsson had a better season this year? Seems like a lot to give up for him and a 1st.
@dlbu dlbu E @Archie Vanlanda He would be their third line centre eventually. Why would you trade away centre depth (which is the hardest thing to acquire) for something else.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Game 68 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Sabres 3 (SO)
@FloorHockeyFlopper McDavid Barkov and bjugstad down the middle. I guess that is ok.
@Kessel81 Depends on how serious of a league you join. So many injuries in that sport a lot of it can be pure dumb luck. It is a lot of fun though. Just jump right in even if you haven't follow football closely. It will certainly increase your interest in it.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Game 66 Scoring Chances: Blues 6 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Mind Bomb @Archie Vanlanda @ProfessorRance It took a gutsy shut out last night from Talbot to get me through.
@Mind Bomb @ProfessorRance Was a round of upsets for sure.
@Mind Bomb @ProfessorRance Now its your turn to fall.
@Cameron19 I didn't hear to much chatter about what his status was. I guess it was assumed he was still unfit to play and will stay that way for the rest of his contract.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Sunday Mashup: Kadri sent home by Horachek
@Savo43 @Markovv55 Barzal is not the guy we want he is a guy we might be left with.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Ron Wilson: “Leafs Rebuild will take 7 or 8 years”
@MaxwellHowe I think that is what they will have to do in order to stay away from term which is essential in the Leafs position.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Leafs Notebook – March 4
@MaxwellHowe All of those are primed for one year deals.
@Alec Brownscombe @Jay31 Maybe 2.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
@HHT @Dangle_My_Berries It is possible for to both look forward to playoffs and be happy about this move.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
@Mattmark @Archie Vanlanda Agreed its a two fold process.
1 month ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@Mattmark Drafting is half the other half is correctly developing our draft picks. Don't undervalue that part of the process.
@Cameron19 What did he do in response?
1 month ago on GDT: Game #59, Toronto Maple Leafs at Carolina Hurricanes (7 p.m., SNO)
@Wilbur @Jay31 A dirt cheap extension...which won't happen.
1 month ago on McKenzie/Ferraro on: O’Reilly, Bozak, Polak & Leafs Coaching Candidates
@phaneufoundlander @Burtonboy Wow I didn't realize it was that often.
@Cameron19 You can check my roster. I'll try to watch for proposals while at work. I'm looking to gain picks for next year.
1 month, 1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Friedman on Polak, Kessel to Florida, and NTCs
@Mitch_S2 @Archie Vanlanda @MaxwellHowe I go to and watch Knight's games regularly.
@Mitch_S2 @MaxwellHowe The problem with that is Marner's style of play is a winger. He rarely plays centre even in JR. He does chase down the puck which might help him translate to centre but that is just so rare.
@LN-093 @In it to Winnik What's more scary is that they could have had Toews as well.

1050 actually putting on a good show today.
@Dan39 That is an interesting idea.
1 month, 1 week ago on Leafs Trade Mike Santorelli & Cody Franson to the Nashville Predators
@Dan39 @mcloki @Burtonboy If Phaneuf is a top two defenseman than he isn't over paid by 2 million. Top two defenseman command major salaries these days. Look as the Orpik and Niskanen deals. They are not top two.
1 month, 1 week ago on GDT: Game #57, Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., CBC)
@Dogger I'm not saying he is a bust. But 20 points is a large margin.
1 month, 1 week ago on Bob McKenzie on Tyler Bozak & Dion Phaneuf interest, Phil Kessel rumours
@Savo43 @leafmealone If LA wins the cup the 1st pick loses a lot of value compared to Provorov
@Dan39 @Archie Vanlanda @DWCMLHS I have only seen him play once so that's not really enough to make a great assessment. But in the top prospects game I thought he looked great. Smooth skating all around defenseman. Not the kind you don't notice and thats a good thing, the kind that controls the pace of the game. Marner is a winger most of the time. Ive seen him the most out of anyone. He has a ton of skill. I just think it is a really hard choice to make because he have that player in Nylander. We can always use more skill but there are different skillsets and we need diversity. If we get him its still a great pick.
@Dan39 @Archie Vanlanda @DWCMLHS McDavid Eichel Hanifin Strome Provorov Marner... after that I have't seen enough to have any idea.
@DWCMLHS @Archie Vanlanda I get the best player available thing if the scouts think there is a large difference in skill. But if not positional need should be looked at.
@DWCMLHS @Archie Vanlanda Pretty close to what I would have. My list is different for who I think they should draft though.
@DWCMLHS Is that an order for who the Leafs should draft or of the best player?
@Yan28 Should be...Will they be able to pull that off?
1 month, 1 week ago on Friday Mashup: “If it’s not here, it’s not here”
@mr_hanie Robidas contract doesn't matter. We shouldn't be a cap team for the next few years and then he will be off the books when it matter. Clarkson is another story.
@HHT @Archie Vanlanda @.Kong. I see him ending up as a winger.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Report: Brendan Shanahan set to go nuclear on Leafs roster
@.Kong. The 4th spot will yield either Hanifin or Strome.
