@Anthony Petrielli @happy_gilmour I understand that they are the moving out stage, but the contract limits might mean they have to have some intake as well?
@Anthony Petrielli @happy_gilmour But presumably if we do trades for picks or prospects (and salary relief) he would have a big say on the prospects? Hunter was an example... I'm wondering who they may end up giving more influence during this period - but guess that depends on what way they want to go (picks... e.g. what rounds are worth going for, young talent already drafted, guys in show show already, etc...)

I wonder how much "input" (re: influence) the rest of the team (e.g. Hunter) will have on the deadline deals, and how much Nonis will just be the mouth piece... in other words, how much they still value his opinion vs keeping him around for image purposes outside of MLSE

Morning all... went to the game last night... how disappointing... I'm not sure how it came across on tv, but really felt like missed opportunities were happening everywhere because the team just stopped moving their legs... Santo was a clear exception, but not competing for pucks and being aggressive to challenge for the puck / waiting for the puck to arrive to them even though the Caps players were pursuing hard, and not finishing checks / pulling up quickly and not willing to take a hit. Some guys were good with the "compete" (or whatever you want to call it), but pretty disappointing effort. Good thing they were free tickets!

Happy New Year all... haven't posted much this year as i usually follow on my phone (at work :) ) and it won't let me post...
Anyway, keep up the great discussion all, and thanks to Alec, Declan, Anthony, Alex (if he finds time to rejoin), etc... for all the hard work and moderating... thankless job sometimes I'm sure!
@docmma Terrible deal for the Leafs... if it was Staal of years ago maybe, not now adays... still a good player, but too expensive

Guys, not sure if you've seen this, but a quick note on the Ice Bucket challenge... great job to all those who participated...:
The outpouring of support Canadians have shown for the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS, has now surpassed $10 million in donations for ALS Canada and ALS Provincial Societies across the country.

@loomx I certainly hope our scouts see him working well in our system... he's a Leaf now, so go Polak go!
7 months ago on (Draft Day Two Mashup) Willie Nylie
@TheCanucksnaphook Hate to admit it, but he has a good point
@Cameron19 @happy_gilmour @TheCanucksnaphook Perhaps I am stuck in the mode of 20 years ago, but you can dish out the black and blue without getting penalties if you build up a core and learn better positioning... talk to rugby players about how much bruising happens in scrums if you don't know how to do it properly
7 months ago on Maple Leafs Trade Carl Gunnarsson, 4th round pick for Roman Polak
@Loric76 We prefer the term cougar...
@loomx Can someone check to see if NoNo is still employed by the Leafs? lol
@loomx we give a 4th and retain salary? man
@TheCanucksnaphook they ain't got nothing on Barb ;) hope this guy makes playing against Toronto tougher a bit... maybe he and Gleason (if he is more like the first month Gleason) can start bringing some black and blue in front of the net and punish mouthy smurfs...
@The_Polish_Cannon Where is the JVR rumour coming from? just returned from some work stuff...
7 months ago on (Draft Day Mashup) The Day Has Arrived
I hate how work gets in the way some times... argh... don't they know the draft is today?
@DeclanK We have a general idea of why he's a good prospect, what would you have him focus on to be a great one?
@ProfessorRance @JMAC17 Depends on if you are taking short medium or long term view I suppose? I would say no for the short term for sure
@JMAC17 @Burtonboy Or if you have to give up PH9 (which I would not for that), I'd do something like Dion + Gleason + 8th for 5th + Strome... doubt NYI would do that, but doubt we'd do PH9 for 5th... ok, so both bad trades... let's get on with it already!
@JMAC17 We battle them for a play-off spot, so it's hard... I think we'd get a damn good prospect, but our defense would be a mess... I guess it depends on what they'd do with the extra cash?
@Dewy Keon Hogturd Just a lot of different tweeters out there... I actually don't follow them, i rely on all you guys :)
@KingTon @happy_gilmour Ah, cool, thanks
Mods - can't remember if this was discussed before, but any way to do a tweet box so that people don't take down Livefyre with all the embeds (I know it's being cleaned up over the last few days)
@Dewy Keon Hogturd Kadri also draws a ton of penalties...
@mike_84 no way
7 months ago on (Thursday Mashup) Maple Leafs considering Tony Granato as potential assistant coach, Dave Nonis meets with media ahead of draft
@HHT @JMAC17 Whoever is left of the big 5? they are all enticing!
@mike_84 @JMAC17 @Bruffins RT @michaelgrange: League source telling me no deal for Ennis to Toronto: "Phoenix wants him"
@mcloki @mike_84 Is Capela still on?
@mike_84 @happy_gilmour yeah, stupid... oh well... worked when we got Carter!
@mike_84 Unless he's being dealt to Raps...
@colino17 @happy_gilmour @Greg Fenton I like your Richards comment, but I think Richards plays (or at least played) a lot harder... also, with wingers like Phil and JVR, I don't think you'd get as much as a drop off... and the LA offence is different... Statsny would most def be the #1C for now
7 months ago on Toronto Maple Leafs News & Notes
@Greg Fenton @colino17 @happy_gilmour Out of curiosity, why are you so against a 28 year old who has put up decent numbers without elite wingers like Phil (and now JVR)? what does waiting do for you? if he flops after a few years trade him, he'd still be only 30.
And I'm more worried about losing out on Phil and JVR's talent than a bit of an over payment for Statsny.. I think with his skill set, he's only being over paid by a Colton Orr away or a Gleason regulation buy out offset (to be replaced by a Marlie)
@Greg Fenton @happy_gilmour @colino17 What are other OBTAINABLE options? Who else could we get and make more use of The Thrill (and soon to be JVR's) potential? Wait and keep waiting? need to roll the dice at some point. And the reason why we have a GM is to make decisions and get into good situations / out of bad situations... kind of like Masai with the Raptors.... even Colangeo with the Raptors had the balls to admit mistake and try and fix them... indecision is the worst thing.
@Greg Fenton @colino17 I partially agree... The Sams won't be ready, someone like Statsny buys time and turns into a trading chip or mentor / vet to take pressure off. I'm in the camp of signing him, but won't get into that debate here again!
