@Alec Brownscombe @Cloud09 I wish the hell I could find the videos of Carlyle coaching Gardner one on one after practice from last season, but I think they were just a couple of clips during a panel discussion on TSN. He had him out on the ice with a small white board, showing him how to position himself in different situations when he's covering a guy on the boards. Reminded me of my dad and I on the backyard rink when I was a kid.

Usually at this time of year we hear screams of "Why didn't we get (Richards, Nash, etc.)"

@Bruffins @Cloud09 Some guy on twitter.
The custom-made and monogrammed satin Leafs jacket and wool cardigan, given to The Who’s late drummer Keith Moon before his final appearance for a paying audience at the old Gardens, is is apparently now for sale.

@Burtonboy And he gave him the second most minutes on the team.
4 hours, 32 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Zep2 Well, he gave Guards the second most minutes on the entire team last year. Don't know why he wouldn't like him.
5 hours, 56 minutes ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
It was the perfect summer for that. Once the big name FAs were scooped up there happened to be a good group of secondary FAs without contracts. Worked out great.
10 hours, 32 minutes ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
I'm wondering if it's a case of Shanahan just being more supportive for moves like these. I don't know what the input was like from Liewekie when he was the next suit above Nonis, but he seems like a guy who would have more interest in the sizzle a big name signing brings to the organization.

Good writeup Anthony. Good time to take a few steps back and look at the wide picture.

1 day, 4 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
Guys can't work out like during summer season. They're always on planes, eating restaurant food.
1 day, 5 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
Smart guy but he's probably is no where being up to date with details about ndividual NHLers.
1 day, 8 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
They've been talking to Winnik for over a month.
There was some indication they've been talking most of the summer. Winnipeg was interested as well.
Just an observation, not a complaint. I'm sure management lets them know about the realities and gameplan for their immediate careers.
Leafs rookie tourney in London in Sept. should be exceptional as well .
Nylander just got his Grade 12. He has tons of time. Leafs have always said Gauthier is 3-4 years away.
Were back to a normal season with no lockout/Olympics messing up the schedule.
Oohhh yeahhhh! Now I'm hungry.
Did you have a sugar sandwich for lunch?
Any of these new guys have good % taking a draw?
1 day, 9 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
What's been the return recently for non-star guys who will be UFAs in a few months? Not a lot I'm guessing.
Less than two months ago Nylander was 17.
What can you get for a guy who will be UFA in a few months tho.
I'm repeating myself, but I REALLY like where Winnik is parked in that photo up top.
I like the fact some of these new guys, D and F, have end-of-season stretch drive experience.
The scouts said they thought Clarkson was stumped by the Leafs oddball system and started trying to do a lot of things he didn't do in NJ. Started worrying about scoring rather than sticking to the lunchpail way he played before.
Was reading an article quoting different anonymous scouts who highly recommended him to their respective teams last summer. They found his season hard to believe because of what they saw before the trade.
1 day, 10 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
He'll have most if the season to prove himself.
I was just reading how Clarkson had great CORSI last season.
And the late season trade market.
I saw it too.
Dressing room killer.
Love it or hate it, I'm thinking the Raymond signing last year might have opened up a new non-expensive player resource for the Leafs in the odd season.
I'm thinking the Mason Raymond signing last year has something to do with it. A lot of us didn't like his overall game, but it showed the Leafs were willing to give him a chance to reboot his career. Might pay cap dividends for Toronto if we can do this every season with a player or two.
And it's short term .... for now anyway.
I REALLY like where Winnik is parked in the photo above.
That's no longer in his job description.
1 day, 10 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
The only person who said that was Steve Simmons.
Someone on here posted here yesterday that Winnik was a done deal, had a friend/relative that knew his agent. Stand up and take a bow.
Someone tell me about Winnik. What's he bring.
Probably hasn't ever seen him play.
@Yaknowwhat It's been up for two days two days so staying on topic with the Reimer signing would be difficult at this point.
2 days, 1 hour ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@Cameron19 @Xxxxxnew @Jay_Berg Shitty move for sure. I dont think the Habs liked it either. The coaches were still riding his butt for stuff for that last year.
2 days, 4 hours ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@Cameron19 @Xxxxxnew @Jay_Berg I think Subban thought he was obligated to putting on a show when he arrived. For some reason he didn't do the same schtick when he was in the AHL, the games I saw anyway.
@Jay_Berg I met Subban a few times when he played in Hamilton for the Bulldogs. Personality-wise, he's nothing like people who have never met him think he is.
