@The_Polish_Cannon Salt in the wounds. This sound like folks who say remember when burke gave away 3 draft picks for kessel......
1 day ago on GDT: Game #64, Toronto Maple Leafs at Florida Panthers (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@Mitch_S2 A big stinker would make me proud of the team
@Bruffins @mtommy @Potcy @wendelsfist trade phaneuf and sign franson. he will get matt carle money at minimum. But he needs to play in top 4
1 day, 21 hours ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
The UFA dmen that are competition for trading Phaneuf this year are
- Franson, Erhoff, Boychuk, beauchimen, p.martin, mike green
@Jay31 @wendelsfist I hope something like this happens
@Potcy @Zep2 He is not insured though. Would that be a problem?
I wonder who would like bozak? Vancouver or Bruins? The yotes would take him cheap but he is worth more then a dump
@Jay31 @wendelsfist Say Nikitin + Pouliet and picks/prospects for Phaneuf and Bernier/Reimer
@Jay31 @wendelsfist Some poor contracts - Nikitin, Boyd Gordon. Ference. Purcell. Pouilet (4 years more)
@Zep2 Well their windows closes with shea weber and rinne does it not?
@.Kong. I wanted more of the core gone (phaneuf, bozak, lupul etc)
But getting rid of Clarkson and the UFAs was the most critical and time driven.
Or Holzer and we could make this a 2 year tank job. Who is the prospect in the following draft?
@Zep2 We might even have to take Ference or Pouliet back
If we trade Phaneuf this summer who do we sign in the UFA market?
@Zep2 That might be good for us.
@Jay31 @Zep2 I can't believe how far they fell after taking the kings to game 7
Staal for Phaneuf on the canes?
Semin +++ for Phaneuf?
Dallas less likely
@Zep2 Thornton for Phaneuf ?
How about Flyers - they like trading for our defencemen?
The wings make most sense if the price can be had.
Avs, flames and oilers have need and maybe some cap space
@Zep2 They seem to like Lupul and Polak.
@Jay31 @wendelsfist Maybe even the Avs could work as they need to replace Hedja and are baren on the blue line
@Jay31 @wendelsfist Phaneuf for a shorter bad contract and picks/prospects I suppose. Maybe Detroit. I wonder if Phaneuf would waive his NTC for Edmonton or Calgary.
Who are we trading this summer - Phaneuf, Lupul, Bozak? Polak maybe.
@Jmessih Brennan was a UFA we let walk so that shouldn't be included. The other are good
@DWCMLHS @Jay31 @Zep2 And Randy C was the coach
1 day, 22 hours ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@Zep2 We are so drafting Tyler Biggs and Percy again
@Savo43 @WB_222 maybe we get our 2nd pick back
1 month ago on Friday Mashup: 6.5% and growing
@WB_222 If they retain 50% then salary is good but it is risky for the leafs if richards continues to tailspin
The defence looked surprisingly good without phaneuf
1 month ago on GDT: Game #49, New Jersey Devils vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SN)
Way for the leafs to salvage defeat from the hands of victory. The shootout looked better with uncle randy as coach
@Cameron19 @wendelsfist @Burtonboy @Yaknowwhat Next you will telling me how Phaneuf and clarkson are hometown discounts too
1 month, 1 week ago on Saturday Mashup: All Star Weekend
@Cameron19 @wendelsfist @Burtonboy @Yaknowwhat Kadri is a RFA. JVR was a trade not signed. And Kessel was an RFA as well. Stop talking down to people.
@Cameron19 @wendelsfist @Burtonboy @Yaknowwhat So how many contracts have the leafs signed like Taveres?
@Burtonboy @wendelsfist @Yaknowwhat On their earlier contract before the cup wins. I don't think the hawks will be as dominant going forward. Also Taveres,took a homer discount which for a building team is wanting to win a cup and having cap room to bring in other players are both critical.
@Knights2Leafs @Zep2 Just fartstorming here but what about Franson for ROR as both need to be extended (Franson sooner). The leafs would need to add another asset as well
@Yaknowwhat If Kessel REALLY wanted to stay here and WIN then he (and especially Phaneuf and Clarkson too) would have taken a hometown team discount. These guys are told to say the right things so I don't put too much stock into this
@Burtonboy I couldn't find that game anywhere on my cable package. I ended up watching the draft which wasn't all bad. I'll have to wait for a later game to see him in action
@Zep2 I think the article is obvious. Sure we should trade for ROR as it is clear our biggest weakness is down the middle. But like you say the problem is the asset cost and if we can retain him.
Toews is character and made the boring all star draft interesting. With the few minutes we saw of him just imagine how his team mates respond to a captain like that in the room. That and his amazing on ice skills.
Toews is trolling the leafs
1 month, 1 week ago on Friday Mashup: Nylander set for Marlies debut tonight in Hamilton
What do the gals do with the players jacket after they hand them a jersey?
How does Nylander look defensively?
Must be the sweater because Big Buff looks slimmer then Kessel
Seguin joking about not back checking. These guys are hilarious and spoiled
Funny how Toronto hockey news travels throughout the NHL. Toews and all know about Kessel and the leafs rumours
@traNsplantEdneWfie Toews is buttering up Kessel for a future trade
Toews calls Phil one of the most coachable players out there
Kessel gets drafted 1st by Toews
Good debate on leafs lunch
- The leafs have talent but the wrong mix of players (two way forwards and weak at center and weak defensively).
- But like the head shrink said, the fact a team loses many games in a row, and has collapsed in the last four season says something about the leadership and character of the core.
