@WereRiellyDoingThis @Luke_R These are all still just kids who will get pro development thrown at them. Onus is on the teams that draft / recognize their potential and will develop their talent
@Luke_R Joined up... Lokster... good luck to all!
@Savo43 I can't remember Cam's suggestion yesterday, but what about something like JVR for 6th + Larson OR Kessel for NJ pick (unprotected pre lottery... yes, I know they wouldn't do it in reality) + Larson + Clowe?

@phaneufoundlander @cryptotho @Burtonboy I think he's bringing his game down to the level of the competition (media)

oh, i thought this was about strome's skating, not strome vs marner lol
1 week, 1 day ago on 2015 NHL Draft Rankings: Maple Leafs to draft fourth overall, pending lottery
@Zep2 Ever see Tavares' draft profile? not a fast skater and D was week... from Hockey's Future:
Tavares is a top-flight talent, perhaps not in the same class as a Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin, but still a player you can build around. Yes, Tavares is not the fastest skater on the ice; yes, his defense -- while improving -- remains passable at best. But what can't be denied is Tavares' incredible hockey sense and offensive ability.
Barb Underhill is not the key, but someone who can help tweak... also, slushy feet shouldn't define the player IMO
@In it to Winnik @DylanJ @happy_gilmour Depends on who is there though, hence the ask on Eichel
1 week, 2 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Orr’s Send Off, Valiev joins Marlies
@DylanJ @happy_gilmour I know, that's why I'm asking what the deal is on Eichel since I don't know much about him
What is the comparison for Eichel? Assuming an over payment, what would it cost and would it be worth it? our 1st (to select Marner?) + JVR + Reilly? So much discussion about the players we have a chance to draft, just wondering about Eichel
@HHT @In it to Winnik @B_Leaf Totally agree
@Savo43 For me it's Strome... in part because his brothers (older and younger) will be good, they are competitive, and help drive him :) Actually, it's because I've been influenced by a lot of the opinions of folks on this site...
that in itself is saying something
1 week, 3 days ago on GDT: Game #81, Toronto Maple Leafs at Columbus Blue Jackets (7:30 p.m., SN)
you never have to apologize, we all love and respect the effort and thought you put into it... always worth the wait!
@Hutch17 @Komas Taberle How about we draft McDavid and trade to pick Marner and find out?
1 week, 5 days ago on GDT: Game 80, Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., CityTV)
@MaxwellHowe @HeatherRickAkin Then they can trade us the German Gretzky :)
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Game 78 Scoring Chances: Sabres 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3
@Xxxxxnew The Leafs deserve something for all the revenue they bring to the Show!
@HeatherRickAkin I haven't watched much... how is Erixon? I was hoping there might be something there..
@Savo43 I really hope Arizona passes them... we win the lotto, Zona gets Eichel and Barfalo whomever they want after them... a guy can dream!
@dlbu dlbu E @Cameron19 I would think a JVR to NJ would be a draft day topic. I would keep Kadri and PH9, in part because I don't think you'd get the value back that we would need (however lower than our expectations that would be).
@CherryPicking @happy_gilmour I know, I just want time to pass! stupid curse of the Leafs!
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
I think SJ and Dallas may be draft day partners as they must be pretty disappointed this year and want a quick bounce back... man, wish time would just pass quicker!
@Ze_theLeafsFan Discussion on this down below... scroll down and you'll see some creative proposals as well...
@Cameron19 @DeclanK What about Henrique + 6th for JVR and NSH pick?
@Mind Bomb @LoovTrain Where did you hear that?
@philthethrill How are those teams doing in terms of banged up players? It might be resting time! Having said that, was expecting us to pick 4th anyway...
@FRyan Bernie and Reims sit
3 weeks, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@djamon @Sebastian James I think we're in for a min of 2-3 years of pain... depends on home run - does that mean prospect overall, or someone who can step in right away? Wary of the step in right away type (unless it's McDavid/Eichel)
1 month ago on Wednesday Mashup: Leafs Eliminated from playoffs
@In it to Winnik @happy_gilmour What about EDM? think they would be interested in Bernie? maybe Phaneuf? NJ and JVR is a good one, would be interesting
@In it to Winnik @happy_gilmour Out of the bottom 10, who do you think we could potentially trade with? (where I wanted the discussion to go)
@In it to Winnik @happy_gilmour lol debated that one
Out of the bottom 10 teams, who are the ones that truly suck, had some misfortune, and need to shake it up? Thinking about it because it might tell us who we could trade with.. my categories (i.e. discussion generation)
Needs a shake-up:
@king leary You mean he is a perfect example re: tool :p
1 month ago on Game 70 Scoring Chances: Canucks 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@zoidbergman You underestimate how much R Willie put us back :p
@Yaknowwhat I think the reality is that Elisha will help keep him in Toronto if he gets the C stripped
1 month ago on GDT: Game #70, Toronto Maple Leafs at Vancouver Canucks (7 p.m., CBC)
On an unrelated note, when are we making our "Hating on Habs" site? Let's focus on positive energy... we have a lot of talented folks here and can come up with creative dissing on Habs comments :)
@Builder Lego Still want Carolina to take it in OT :)
@Yaknowwhat I understand the sentiments around the core and think all of them will likely go at some point, but part of me hopes we keep Phaneuf, find a different captain (think that will help) and let him thrive. Lups, Brozak and Kessel can go... if only Lups could stay healthy, I'd keep him too... but change is needed I know
not just vets, but ones from recent winning teams that can talk abouy how certain thibgs payoff at the NHL level etc.
@Jeff_Mintz I'd really like to see what we have there too. I think the other we have an idea because they were in the Marlies system, Erixon may be a gem
1 month ago on Game 68 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Sabres 3 (SO)
@vinoa @happy_gilmour @17Forever Yup, agree with that... Calgary screwed them on his value :)
@17Forever Only if they are drunk and Nonis has pics of them... no way they give MacKinnon up at this stage of his career, let alone O'Rielly as well..
dollars to doughnuts we end up with a kid from the O who is not Biggs like due to the wonder twins Shanny brought in
Don't say that... not getting a top 5 would be worse!
@nrandreycharles Nobody is giving up the first 2 picks.. and I would draft Hanifin... go for BPA, we're too weak all over, and we could use our "more established" talent in other trades. Looking at Ekblad and Jones over the last couple of years, if Hanifan is the stud everyone says, I think you need to go for it.
Looks like our NSH pick is improving :) Let's go St. Loo!

EDM storming back eh?
