@FRyan Bernie and Reims sit
5 days, 3 hours 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 week, 3 days 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 week, 5 days 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 week, 6 days 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
2 weeks, 1 day 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!
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Game 68 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Sabres 3 (SO)
Go BJ's Go!
EDM storming back eh?
@Jmessih Thought you were going to make a Burkie rebuild comment! yeah, I hope they do well too
@Jay31 Cane sched looks worse I think, CBJ should pull out more wins... predicting we get 5th overall in the draft.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on GDT: Game #68, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Buffalo Sabres (7 p.m., SN)
why can't this season just end?
Ha, friend just commented that there is so much suckage on the ice a black hole may open up... lol
@Nylanderthal @DJBrianBurke I think that would send a horrible message to Reilly, but that's just my opinion
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Greatest Tank Battles
@Burtonboy @sniperstar That list doesn't all count against the cap though, right? given the A / $925k threshold? nice to free up some contract slots though
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Leafs Notebook – March 10
Saw this... for a 23 year old without Kessel's track record... puts some perspective on Kessel's worth (not blogger's worth), especially for the crazy people who said we should retain some of his salary:
“Yeah, well – if they’re going to sign him he’s going to want a multi-year deal in the six, seven, eight years, whatever, at north of $6 million a year. There’s no question. Between 6 and 7.“And you know what? I think the Blues are fine with that, as long as the consistency of production is there. As long as they’re convinced what they’re seeing isn’t a one-off. That this isn’t just a lucky season where his shooting percentage is high and he got some breaks.

just logged on... the Buds are winning? what the hell?
2 weeks, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #67, New York Islanders at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
refresh... not the results i see...
2 weeks, 6 days ago on GDT: Game #66, St. Louis Blues at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
@dlbu dlbu E @Anthony Petrielli In this case Management controls the media, and they've let this become bigger than it should... should focus on other things... oh well, give us good fodder for discussion here, but not the most enjoyable topic!
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto
@BPsotka @Marleafs The funny thing is, most fans think that the majority of MSM are idiots when it comes to the Leafs.... so if the Leafs worry about the true fans, they shouldn't!
I think the players will just stop talking to certain media folks who will respond by escalating things as bad/stupid news is good business...
@mcloki I think realistically 4th is our best shot (well, aside from winning the lottery)
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
@Conis Buffalo did a good job starting last year, and this year the 'yotes are putting together a masterpiece...
Still, hate tanking personally, but get the long term benefits... I don't think I could ever really tank in my professional life, and guys that are pro-atheletes much just hate it (until they look at their pay cheques)
@LessThan12Parsecs Yeah, they should stick to their guns and wait for an appropriate deal - that's why they get paid the big bucks... screw Detroit...
@TheLoovTrain @happy_gilmour 6 weeks long weeks till we find out Buffalo gets #1... supreme tank job on their end... think Buff goes 1 and Zona goes 2, their tank jobs deserve it
@MaxwellHowe @happy_gilmour Yeah... death by 1000 paper cuts
Man, this is going to be a very long end to the season
hey, wasn't chris stewart supposed to be traded for a 1st+... look what he went for... ha! and people say we over estimate our players' value lol
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@NiagaraFallsThunder @DeclanK @TuckerForPunishment poor JFJ.. good at scouting, flubbed his GM shot
@MaxwellHowe @peterbleafs That's called using your financial might to buy picks... I like the trend
@DARF24 Def the 'yotes, they did well
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Deadline Thread II: Dion Phaneuf to Detroit Rumours
@MaxwellHowe @FRyan You mean with the tank
@JasonBournee @DylanJ Yotes are getting better at tank battles, but started too late... if they kept this up, they would be beating Barfalo
3 weeks, 5 days ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
@wiski Chill out guys, it's ok... he's from Mimico...
whatever happened to incarcerated bob or whatever his name was?
@Markovv55 Is that an E(4) with every swig he takes?
@Leafs_89 Elisha X 4
