If the Leafs got Yak, I think it likely he would get flipped somewhere else

@Yaknowwhat think we could get him back for a 4th?

@WendelGilmour @MaxwellHowe @Jay_Berg The camp wasn't lousy, that was exaggerated. And how can you make the contradictory statement that he was going to be handed a job and his body of work was bad?  Anyway, there was a wrist injury that he took time to overcome.

@Jay_Berg astounding that, up to now, MacT has done little of significance.

@Jay_Berg yes, but a poor 3 or 4 preseason games was enough to see him off to Calgary for a 4th rounder; raising the small sample size argument now, might have been a good idea 13 months ago

This is not an issue yet, not looking at trades now, but the Nathan Horton situation may present he Leafs with an interesting opportunity.  It has been said here that given his injury history his contract may not have been insured.  IF this is the case, the Bluejackets are stuck paying huge for a guy that looks bound to be on the LTIR for a long time.  Now, for MLSE, that $ ain't no thang.  May just be interesting to watch how that Horton's situation plays out this year.

@loomx I just can't fathom why Ashton - Holland  - Frattin can't be trusted with more minutes - at least for the sake of their own development.  Same mentality that got Colborne traded.

@Xxxxxnew I thought Gardiner was ordinary, but not bad either.  That one play where Bernier has to make the great glove save - Gardiner put the puck on Kadri's stick, not sure if Kadri gator-armed it or it skipped over his stick, but I have no idea why it was labelled an awful giveaway.

That play where Franson watched the puck slide past him at the end of the pp, thereby losing a ozone face off against tired piers, was qute something.  Really has his head in the game, that one

@Darkside Beleafer @MaxwellHowe thats the style he has a relatively untalented team play; not sure we would see the same with more talent.  Thats not the style he won with in 2008

So when Carlyle is fired, should we expect Horachek to be the interim until next summer  - and after Shanny determines how many zeros Babcock wants on his cheques?

Warning to all Leaf fans.  Just perusing the schedule.  Note the following games:


January 12 - In LA, vs Kings

January 14 - in Anaheim, vs Ducks

January 15 - in San Jose, vs Sharks

January 17 - in St. Louis, versus Blues



I suggest scheduling your vacation in mid January, 2015.  To some remote spot free of outside communication.

@Doorman dude.  Kessel, Bozak, JVR, Kadri and Lupul got 0 points this weekend and you're talking about a 4th line with 3mins ice time per game?

Word was the Bluejackets were seeking a deal for a big time top line winger.  NTCs to overcome, but Nonis should look into sending Kessel that way for a 1st rounder and Nick Foligno and Ryan Murray, some combination.  Take back Nathan Horton, who some here believe might not have been insured - relieves CBJ of the salary, which is sweet F all to MLSE - he'll probably be on LTIR for the rest of his contract anyway, so far as the cap is concerned.

Watch the Wings and you can barely tell one player from another in terms of style.  Maybe its coaching, I don't know, but the Leafs are a bunch of misfits each playing their own little game out there.

@Yaknowwhat I think Holland's been getting steadily better. and Frattin was really moving his feet last nite, made a good hit and actually got a good shot thru on a pp.  I'm convinced Frats hit on Carlyle's daughter or something

The weekends losses are on JVR, Kessel, Bozak, Kadri and Lupul (not the GD 4th line).  The Wings are not a defensive juggernaut.  Those 5 players have to do better than 0 points.  Why are we talking about Panik or Holland or Frattin?
