No doubt there are a few teams at least.   Really Kessel had the ideal situation in Boston where they had very good 2-way centers, and they had good team defence, and they had lots of physicality to protect him.   And yet they decided he was not worth the big money.

Good article...I do not understand how you can invest so much in this team right now.  I guess I have been doing it a little longer, and this season with all the mismanagement has really gotten to me.  


Anyway one point of disagreement..."whether you like Phil Kessel or not, he would easily make $8M/season anywhere in the league", I don't think this is the case. I think there are teams that because of the liabilities, and because of some aspects to Phil's approach would not want Phil on their team period.  I think there are others who would try to utilise him but not at $8 million. There are teams that will be happy to have him at $8M however I am not sure it will help them win a cup.  Boston for one already made a decision that Phil was not a fit. Toronto has accomplished nothing but dismal depths with Phil...granted he has not been surrounded by the proper players but that is also a bit of an excuse.

We need Nashville to finish behind St L, and we need as many teams as possible to get ahead of them, then we need them to exit first round, and then we might draft as high as 20 or something like that with the pick....belch!

Entry Draft Order
The order of selection among the Member Clubs in each season shall be determined in the following manner:
A composite of all Member Clubs shall be prepared by placing:
i) First the Clubs which failed to qualify for the preceding playoffs in the order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest points total and followed by the Club having the next lowest points total, and so forth.
ii) The Clubs which participated in the preceding playoffs (but had not been ranked first in their respective Divisions and had not won the Stanley Cup that season) in order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest total points and followed by the Club having the next lowest total points, and so forth.
iii) The Clubs which had been ranked first in their Divisions during the next preceding season (but had not won the Stanley Cup that season) in the order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest total points and followed by the Club having the next lowest total points, and so forth.
iv) The Stanley Cup winner shall select last, thus, positioning all Clubs on the list.

In the event of a tie for any position, such tie shall be resolved by application of the rules governing the determination of final League standings. The resulting list shall constitute the order of selection.

I just hope these departing Leafs just continue to play the way they have all year. Don't go and turn it around now!


Regarding Kessel trying to blame the media or some in the city with the treatment of Dion...I agree.  There are some Phaneuf haters out there and I think they carry it way to far.  Personally I wouldn't mind keeping Dion.   I also love how Kessel puts the blame where it should be...the guys who built this team.  Having said that, Kessel should probably be the first to go, but for a good return.

5 days, 17 hours ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson

Reply

OK, I never had a problem with Clarkson and the Scott incident...I also wondered why he got flack over that. It turned out bad but what if he didn't jump on the ice and Scott killed someone.   The problem with Clarkson had nothing to do with an unforgiving marketplace either.  If you play well it is very forgiving...look at Franson...some people were all over him last year, but when he got it turned around everybody loved him.   The problem with Clarkson stemmed from his play, from his ridiculous salary, and the fact that Grabovski was bought out to make room for him. He could not come close to replacing the heart Grabovski showed.   Most of this is on Nonis.

@Mitch_S2


While I have no doubt this idea has no more basis than Eklunds imagination...It is nevertheless a reasonable deal. Essentially it has Huberdeau and FLA first for Kessel.  Sort of hard to imagine FLA giving up their first before the lottery just in case...but in all honesty their chance at McDavid will be very slim and they may feel very positive about their chance to make the playoffs.  For the Leafs they get another middle of the draft pick unless FLA goes on some run. But it is a strong draft and I love the idea of having three picks in it. Obviously Huberdeau is not garbage either although I don't see him as gold. I think it is a fair deal.  Leafs have some good strength coming in the wing positions with Brown and Nylander.
