@Burtonboy the play-offs are dead to me
1 day, 11 hours ago on Morning Mashup: Drafting in the 8 spot
@Biltmore Nah, trade Franson + Reimer + our 1st for Calgary or EDM's 1st and draft Bennett
@Mind Bomb @Wilbur Reimer + Franson + 1st for Calgary's 1st... Franson, and Optimus need a scenary change, Burke likes 'em, we want to make a splash. Gives us some cap relief and enables us to shake things up a bit.
1 day, 21 hours ago on Morning Mashup: Drafting in the 8 spot
@leafersutherland 1. bring up the Marlies and push... don't just put the youngsters on the 4th line - remind the vets on the higher lines what it means to be hungry
2. Ritchie or Perlini (sp?)
3. Give him burn on the 2nd PP unit. Park his rear in front of the net and get him to develop a move like JVR.
4. + Brian Elliott as a back-up, WIllie Mitchell (short term) -McClement, MayRay, Kule
2 days, 6 hours ago on 2014 NHL Draft Lottery – Harnessing the Power of 3.6%
@wendelsfist @happy_gilmour Didn't mean bernie, meant reimer... it's too late, and my brain is turning to mush!
@.JVR. @happy_gilmour I thought MayRay got a lot of burn with them... my bad
@djamon @TheJFish Yup... think we should've traded him this past year... could've recouped a 2nd at least from a contender! (and I like the guy)
@.JVR. @happy_gilmour Did he? man, total brain fart on my end then!
@TheJFish what's the over under for how many games that will last? then again, stranger things have happened... just look at the Raps!
@.JVR. @happy_gilmour His argument would be that Carlyle didn't use him properly (a la Grabo)... I think his numbers would be higher if RC kept last year's #2 line together for the majority of this year... plus if he can play C in a pinch, gives flexibility
@Sexyhairyman @happy_gilmour @.JVR. Yes... the questions was what do I think HE would be asking
@.JVR. HAving said that, Ashton or Komo could replace
@.JVR. Everyone goes for a raise... my guess is $14/4 years... he is 27 and in his prime
@wendelsfist @happy_gilmour I think a bunch of people need fresh starts including the coaching staff, half the defense and half the forwards. Change the culture everywhere - not all bad people, just time for a change - Shanny is the excuse to do it. Bring in an influx of Marlies, trade some serviceable parts to other teams (Gunnar, Fransor, Bernie... even Lups - although I like him), get back cap flexibility, change the culture, and go for it in 2 years
@wendelsfist @happy_gilmour Bodie in spurts... McClemment too, but once he started to play heavy minutes we saw a decline in his effectiveness (e.g. PK went south too)
@wiski @ShiftyD @happy_gilmour I hate when Bettman controls all the balls of the clubs :p
@wendelsfist Kule.. Bernie... Bolland...
@ShiftyD @wiski @happy_gilmour interesting... thought Shanny was supposed to sort us out... wtf... #fireshanny
@wendelsfist It would be easier to list who was committed enough...
2 days, 7 hours ago on 2014 NHL Draft Lottery – Harnessing the Power of 3.6%
@.JVR. @happy_gilmour Yeah, think it would level the playing field quicker... either they do something like that or do a soft cap like the NBA
This may be a naive question, but if the NHL wants to create parity (e.g. with a hard cap), then why not do a lottery for the top 5 draft spots and discourage tanking?
@leafersutherland @happy_gilmour @Jay31 Not straight up, lol, was just inquiring about him as he was supposed to be a good talent.
1 week, 3 days ago on Poll: Who do you want as the Head Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs?
@Jay31 What about Forsberg from Nashville?
@Wilbur I think we let Kessel Bozie and JVR keep growing together... they are all young and are pretty high scoring... Kadri will continue maturing into 2nd line I think. Need an over haul of the 4th line. Need a D partner for PH9 that let's him play his game.
@Jmessih Loved when Kuli went right back after that D a few times in the second period... Kuli go laid out by the D, then showed him who was boss... think it was his compatriot from Sochi too :)
1 month ago on Game Review: Game #68, Maple Leafs 3 vs. LA Kings 2
@Shafty I think with Bozak we don't need a C to feed the Kess... then it comes down to 2nd line... I'm liking Kadri's continued progression... and I wouldn't want a pricey C like Stastny on the third line (and his skills aren't best suited there), so I'd say no... and Cap space is probably best spent littered across some of our FA's coming up (looking at you Kuli)
