I see Gunnarson has been injured this entire season.  That might have been a good trade.

Regarding trade timeline below.  Usually teams start talking trades around November when they get a sense of where they stand.   It is looking like Florida, Canes, Sabres, Oilers and Winnipeg will likely be more engaged in trades

@Burtonboy The fourth line is an extra shift for Kessel plus two scrubs

@Luke_R I had a bad thought that maybe a certain leaf player with a poor contract would get non-fatally injured and be forced to serve the remainder of his contract on LTIR.  But I can't even will that.

@ToasterStrudel  I suppose this means you have been reading the tweets from fancy stats folks. :-) The funny thing is on his line he leads his team mates in corsi/puck possession.

There are too many youth and folks who are unemployed since the 2008 downturn.  It is sad that more and more are finding there way into radicalized activities (be it jihadi related or other) and that give them a (sick) purpose for their life.

Why is everyone complaining about Phaneuf?  That was a smart move by Phaneuf getting himself off the ice for a couple minutes to improve the leafs chances of a goal against.

@T K O @ProfessorRance @Mcost61 Staal to Oilers.   Bozak and crap to Canes. Some assets to the leafs.    Doesn't really make sense for the other team to include us

@Mitch92 @wendelsfist @Burtonboy You are wrong though.  The leafs have a new secret weapon though.  Analytics and a bunch of basement bloggers.  There is no way the NYI stack up against those guys.

@Burtonboy I read this again.  And I think when Nazem says "he's", Kadri is referring to Taveres not being at Kadri's level yet and how Taveres can get there.  :-)

@T K O @Mcost61 At this point it should be clear - Carlyle is not getting fired.  He has as much chance being fired as Kessel getting traded.

@Mcost61 Carlyle and Nonis are still setting the tone for the team.  They are like Clarkson and Phaneuf who will never be traded from the leafs.

I can't wait until people complain that santorelli or some other non-top 6 forward play 20 minutes a night because Kadri/Bozak can't stack up against the opposition elite talent.

Good write up.  Holland' stagnation in his development is making the trade last year looks worse and worse after his decent start to last season.  


Compared to last year the first two lines are pretty much the same. 

The third line replaces the Bolland line.  Time will tell if they produce at Bolland's/Raymonds rate

The fourth line is still getting just a few minutes a night.  But if Holland is a 4th liner then it might as well be Colbourne.  


That said, our blue line appears better then last years version.

@Yaknowwhat I'm pissed.  Every year it is the same thing.  Some promise about parades and how things will change with analytics or pugnacity or ron wilson rush offence and every year they fail to amount to much.

So the leafs spend all this money on analytics and hire a bunch of analytical saavy folks and they and their spreadsheets can't even match what the inept dinosaur did by getting this team into the playoffs.

@Cloud09 @wendelsfist @Yaknowwhat Well sort of.  The leafs are worse this season even with a big expensive analytics team then last year with the dinosaur at the helm.  The dinosaur at least got this team to the playoff once and the only time in the last decade

@Yaknowwhat I blame the analytics group.  They are not doing their job and are extending the trend from the end of last season.
