@DeclanK In retrospect, maybe he shoulda given Harper the Bobby Orr treatment

@Burtonboy Little hesitant about this.  In the past, what seemed like a neck injury...

@Anthony Petrielli He came closer to getting to the promised land than acknowledged.  Not as close as Pat Burns, but close.

Can't find that video of Quinn smashing Bobby Orr.  Super dirty, but just an example of Quinn being a pragmatist.  There was no other way to stopp Orr.

@Potcy @MaxwellHowe yeah, if you score 60 points, and you're minus 2, the hockey gods may be tellng you something.

@Potcy @MaxwellHowe combined plus minus of -2

@Potcy @MaxwellHowe Please .  RC has to basically protect them from other 1st lines.

Pardon if that sounds naive or stupid or whatever.  But, at least according to the stats, Komarov leads the league in takeaway/turnover plus minus. He is defensively responsible.  He can pass a puck decently.  Would it not make sense to have him on a line with Kessel?  If Leo can jar pucks lose, get it back in the dzone, skate well, is it just me, or doesn't he seem like the right guy to spring Kessel lose or, at least open up some space for him?

@kxbarillas


Komarov - Kadri - Kessel

JVR - Bozak - Lupul

Winnik - Holland - Clarkson

Booth - Santorelli - Leivo


KOzun for Leivo if ready.  

File it under things that will never happen

@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe i can only assume the Oilers have so few NTCs because no player really wants to insist on it.   "sure, trade me anytime......ANYTIME"

According to capgeek, only one player (Ference) has a NMC.  How did they pull that off while the Leafs are stuck with a bunch of those clauses?

@Burtonboy Probably end up in Pittsburgh, if I had to make a guess.

@Burtonboy You know the types of player they need?  Santorelli, Winnik, Komarov.  But they ain't gettin them, barring a knock out offer.

@Yan28 Leads the leacue in takeway-turnover plus minus...maintaining a +1 lead over that wizard Tyler Bozak.  But I wonder who keeps that stat, because with all due respect, its hard to believe two Leafs are # 1 and 2

Kinda have pity for the Oilers.  But MacTavish?  How can he expect to make any meaningful trade now?  Desperate sellers aren't getting value back.

@Omac13 Trick with Lupul is finding a place he would be OK to go, given his NTC.  Maybe he'd like like the beaches of Miami.  Or may be he'd like to go with a contender in Pitts.


I hate no trade clauses, they should not be permitted.

@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe Polak will have to be put on LTIR, since he has basically the same injury as Kozun.  Why wouldn't they?

@Burtonboy Leafs seem to have a lot of cap space right now, if I read capgeek right.  Especially once Polak is put on LTIR.

@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe @wiski does an emergency call up have a time limit?  Because Polak is going to be out awhile

@wiski If Holzer is called up, doesn't he have to go thru waivers to go back down again?  If its a right shooter they're looking for, is Nillson ready?

@Yaknowwhat But I actually agreed with Don Cherry - with salute -gate the Leafs put an awful lot of pressure on themselves - and maybe they're just maturing and beginning to realize the commitment needed day in and day out

Much in hockey (and sports) is between the ears.  It really think its possible for these guys to find the right mindset, to learn how to mentally prepare and give 60 minutes efforts.  They're probably not there yet, but I get the sense the Leafs are growing a bit this season.  They're taking their knocks, fucking up, but turning it around.  Still a flawed team, but I've seen teams with less talent go a long way.
