@Murph2417 @MaxwellHowe @Jay_Berg some truth to that. read something earlier in the summer, the author theorized that "enforcers" actually create the tension and animosity that leads to aggression and injuries to star players.  I believe he referenced the fact tat Luvic and/or Thornton was on the ice when Marc Savard's career was ended.

@Murph2417 @Jay_Berg given that, by all accounts, he has the skating and passing and stick handling and scoring down, is  learning how to be a centre that much to ask?  I say no


Edit: not much heft in that lineup tho

@Jay_Berg I saw that projected second line and, to quote George Castanza, "it moved"

@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe yes. everything will be fine now.


Seriously tho, someone will disappoint, someone from the Marlies will shine and be impossible to keep down.  Mark my words.  In case I'm wrong, then I will claim my account was hacked

Didn't the Leafs keep Ashton over Colborne?

@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe Cameron Cameron, employing what appears to be common sense to assess the Leafs.  You'll join us on the other side one day.  The Joe Colborne mess?  Thats more routine than you can imagine.

@Loric76 @MaxwellHowe thought you would make a bold and drunken prediction

@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe one of them sucks, which is not statistically unlikely, and a couple of Marlies look awesome, which is not unlikely either


sorry for the double negatives

@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe That wasn't put forth as an acceptable answer.  


EDit: can Frattin be sent to the Marlies without waiver? Don't ask me to look it up, its late

awkward silence.....


So who's getting waived/traded after training camp?  Santorelli, Booth, Kontiola, Frattin, Ashton or Winnik?

@TheCanucksnaphook @MaxwellHowe Im riling up everyone this evening.  It all began when I told my 2 year old she couldn't sit in a puddle.  She lost her shit.  Been all downhill from there.

game tape is one thing - Ieaving aside all the othert things a goalie must focus on, a goalie must face them and get accustomed to their tendancies.  If game tape made that much of a difference toi someone's performance, we wouldn't have training camp or even value experience in any context.

There's a lot of teams in the NHL. Few goalies are going to be that accustomed to seeing Leaf shootouts.

Bizarre that Kessel is so low. During normal play when one on one with a goalie he is dynamite.

His forecast of a billion dollars is reasonable though.  If you have that kind of money, just buy the Leafs.

Should have retired with dignity.  Nothing against the guy, but what else is there for him to do?

If you're willing to take a moment, any issue affords an opportuity to take a shot at Clarkson.  Its about commitment

KHL president Alex Medvedev to Sport-Express.ru on when we’d see Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin in the KHL: ‘You mean comeback to Russia? There might be good surprises in a year’

So is Putin going to take his toys and go home?  Russia isn't developing many good players these days anyway

From the article:

"In the AHL playoffs, he had seven goals and eight assists in 11 games."

Thats impressive production for the playoffs, even in the AHL.  I think Holland is going to have a breakout season with the Leafs

@deedrag Its Toronto.  The problem is Toronto.  The last several years it seems there is nothing Toronto can't F up.  Hurry up and give Rob Ford 4 more years; he won't be sober too much longer

@TheCanucksnaphook @Burtonboy digging deep in the memory banks for an instance when he had ever done anything remotely resembling it.  I don't remember Carlyle as a player, certainly not in his prime, but I don't imagine he was speedy gonzales.  He got a bunch of points in the 80s, but who didn't?

@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe sure, but changing that top line, one of the only bright spots, is a bold idea.

@Burtonboy I do that in every one of my excellent lineup proposals.  Lupul has played well with the top line in the past.  Kadri and JVR sounds intriguing.

@CanuckUKinToronto @MaxwellHowe Clarkson drags down the top 6.  If he has improved, he could move up.  I think Winnik might disappoint

@Fish Head @MaxwellHowe Picks, prospects.  But I decided against another D, rather save the cap space for trade deadline steals

Tried to copy and paste this from cap geek, can't do it with my new Mac.  Trust me, there's around $2.6 million in space left:


Lupul   Bozak   Kessel

JVR      Kadri    Frattin

Booth   Holland   Clarkson

Komarov   Santorelli   Kontiola

Ashton   Winnik


Polak   Phaneuf

Robidas   Gardiner

Granberg   Rielly

Percy


Bernier

Reimer



The Leafs have done worse.  You might switch Holland and Santorelli.
