What is meant by blowing up the team? Does that mean trading away players when their value is low for draft picks in a draft that is weak? Hardly sounds promising.
I think we see what happens next year after doing what we can with what we have. If nothing changes...we look hard at our options next year at the TDL. And maybe we look at a reload...but I doubt it comes to that if the right GM comes on board.

Komarov, Ott, and Grabovski give us a lot more mental toughness.

It comes down to...What choice do we have?
The team is not as bad as it looked...we saw the similar group look good going seven games OT with Boston.
Next year has to be a stepping stone year after the disaster this year. I am not saying this is a contender or anything but it lets us see where we are with what we have. We definitely need some different coaching whether it is Carlyle or someone else.
I am thinking a lot less than 5.5 for Grabs
As rotted as I am at the Leafs right now, I have to admit that with a change in the GM, I can see this turning around. just one year ago we looked really good. I firmly believe this team missed Grabovski more than anyone realizes. It wasn't just his impact on the ice but his intangibles. The same can be aid for Komarov.
The parts worth building around are JVR, Kessel, Bozak, Kadri, Leivo, Kulemin, Phaneuf, Rielly, Gardiner, Gunnarsson, Bernier, Reimer, and maybe Franson and Lupul. I think the team can benefit from some subtraction. Clarkson and Raymond for sure. I would sign Komarov, call up D'Amigo, and Ashton. If Bolland wants too much money I would explore bringing Grabovski back. Sign UFA Ott. Promote a young D like Finn or Granberg.
JVR Bozak Kessel
Lupul Kadri Leivo
Kulemin Grabovski Komarov
D"Amigo Ott Ashton
Call me crazy, but that is what I would do...we are in a weak position to make any trades.
I would love to add a mean hombre to the back end but not sure where to get it...maybe even bring Fraser back.
I hear you...I don't think the Marlie players are ready yet...another year for most.

Barrie....we should be Ok for summer, not sure about Nfld
Where are you?
At least we had a few nice days last week
I am fine
LOL, I sound like a sulking kid.
So in RC presser he identified that this team was not difficult to play against whereas last year we were quite difficult to play. So what happened? Well it demonstrates that there is a fine line between the two. You remove Mark Fraser from playing a solid 16-18 minutes a night. You take away Komarov's 14-16 minutes of grit and hit. You take Grabovski's courage and ability to skate the puck away for 16 minutes. And you remove a bull like Frattin for 14 minutes. The problem is that other players lose a few pounds without the reinforcements. The collective spirit of the team was damaged. Our depth took a huge hit. Nobody wanted to go to work this year.
It was a very embarrassing season. Fans who are honest could see this coming from the first game. The puck winning was the worst I have ever seen. if you cannot win pucks how on earth can you compete.
If Nonis survives it isn't getting better.
What a joke this organization is...I really wish I could choose another team.
If another team came to Toronto. I think I could jump ship.

Thanks for nothing Nonis
See you at the draft boys
I cant stop laughing at that horn
So if we lose in regulation do we draft 8th
This is just pathetic...anybody watching this game should be institutionalized.
Backhands puck into corner on break away...lol
both teams trying to lose.
Not watching this garbage, but just checked the score...I bet Clarkson scores two third period goals celebrating like a little girl...altering our draft position to miss a future hall of famer.
I am going to cancel my Leafs TV

Leaf games should start with a viewer discretion warning
You throw enough...something will stick
Santos slider is nasty
I would love to interview Nonis
8 million was too much, but he has improved his game a ton
Somewhere in NY a short man is smiling
Fire Nonis...clap, clap...clap.clap.clap
@Reversethecurse13 @ingy56 @B_Leaf
That was a good one for sure
Nice at bat by Diaz to get on base
Melky a 2 run shot
no reason...just struggling a little
I am not a big fan either
Rasmus got his head shaved...cant call him Colby-locks anymore
We are winning the lottery regardless
Is the crowd doing the "leafs suck" chant yet...is it our fans or theirs
Pretty sad eh Ingy
Hopefully I can make those kinds of jokes about Nonis next year
lol I wish
