@hometeem @DWCMLHS 4th in TOI/game on a team with a stacked defence.
5 days, 23 hours ago on GDT: Game #59, Toronto Maple Leafs at Carolina Hurricanes (7 p.m., SNO)
Remember when we traded a 2nd-pairing DMan, along with a draft pick, while retaining $200K in salary in the process, for a 3rd-pairing Dman? Fun times.
LOL why didn't Malone kick away the rebound?
@Yaknowwhat At least he hopped off of the stretcher and skated to the door himself. Looked really bad for a minute, there.
6 days, 23 hours ago on Joffrey Lupul: “Who are we going to put on the ice next year?”
Trade Lupul, so he doesn't have to be one of the 4 guys that stick around and suck next year.

Leipsic seems to be a similar caliber prospect to Connor Brown.
1 week, 3 days ago on Leafs Trade Mike Santorelli & Cody Franson to the Nashville Predators
So, it was essentially a late 1st round pick for Franson, Brenden Leipsic for Mike Santorelli, and a salary dump of Olli Jokinen.
I hoped/expected to receive a late 1st for Franson, and a 2nd for Santorelli. Leipsic has definitely exceeded the post-draft expectations of a 3rd round pick, and I think his value is roughly equal to that of a 2nd round pick now. Jokinen will likely be movable on deadline day. We should get at least a late round pick for him.
Overall, I like the deal. I can't help but wonder why it was made so early, but hey, we're getting shittier, and that's good for our draft position.
1 week, 4 days ago on Leafs Trade Mike Santorelli & Cody Franson to the Nashville Predators
Biggs will be 22 in April, and he's still barely an AHL-caliber player. He's a long shot to ever be a full-time NHLer.
1 week, 5 days ago on Bob McKenzie on Tyler Bozak & Dion Phaneuf interest, Phil Kessel rumours
@BringBackYushki He has looked good today. 4-game point streak now.
He still has elite potential.
@bear19 @DWCMLHS @Dogger Marner needs to add weight way more than height. But that's controllable, at least to a certain extent.
@Dogger I have to assume you mean Dylan Strome, the draft-eligible one.
His skating worries me a little. That's why I like Marner a bit better. Skating and hockey sense are the two most important areas of a prospect's game, when it comes to having their play translate well into the NHL, in my opinion. I still have Strome rated 5th overall, though.
SO MANY GOALS
@traNsplantEdneWfie 6 points in 5 games.
Hmm. Thought that would be blocked for sure.
@Marlies Man @DWCMLHS Yup
@Marlies Man Weak goal
@Archie Vanlanda @DWCMLHS Best player. Just in my opinion, of course.
But the Leafs should draft the best player available when they pick. So both, actually.
We will get a top-10 pick for sure. Hopefully top-5. Here's my current top-10 list:
Let's just win the lottery and get McDavid ;)
Pleeeease don't move anyone useful to the Habs. We don't need to build them up for a playoff run...
I know that we have to get the best return possible for our players, and maybe the Habs will make the best offer for one, but shit. It would suck so bad if we moved someone there, and they helped the Habs win the St- I don't even want to finish that sentence.
@Dan39 @DWCMLHS I think Lupul is a movable asset. Robidas, on the other hand, is going to be tough to move. We could have to retain salary to move him.
2 weeks ago on Game 55 Scoring Chances: Rangers 5 vs. Maple Leafs 4
It would really be nice if we could move all of Franson, Bozak, Lupul, Polak, Winnik, Santorelli, Booth, and Robidas for picks/prospects at the deadline. Then decide on Kessel and Phaneuf at the draft.
@Jay_Berg 2015 1st-round pick, J. Honka, V. Nichushkin (not going anywhere), J. Dickinson, J. Oleksiak, B. Ritchie, J. Campbell are all decent pieces worth adding.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Game 55 Scoring Chances: Rangers 5 vs. Maple Leafs 4
Huge deal. Hearing Myers Stafford Armia and Lemieux plus a first for Kane and Bogosian as principles of deal getting close btwn Buf + Wpg.
I was so drunk this past weekend that I didn't even realize we traded Ashton and Broll to Tampa Bay. Clearing contracts?
@whalz I have him ranked 4th... Strome 5th. I don't get how some people have him outside of the top-5.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Thursday Mashup: On the Hunt for Picks
@mtommy No. Crosby is the best player in the world, by a fairly wide margin, but he's already in his prime, making tons of money, and has had significant injury trouble.
McDavid, IMO, will at least become a Tavares-caliber player, and he's the one guy that has the potential to possibly become better than Crosby down the road. Plus, we'd get way more years of play from him, including 3 dirt-cheap ELC years.
3 weeks ago on Thursday Mashup: On the Hunt for Picks
3 weeks, 6 days ago on GDT: Game #50, Arizona Coyotes at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
How do these guys get paid to talk about hockey, when they don't even understand percentages?
4 weeks ago on GDT: Game #49, New Jersey Devils vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SN)
The Leafs have had some atrocious luck lately. Watch them win 3 or 4 of their next 5, and idiots start saying "See! Phaneuf was the problem!".
@philthethrill @DWCMLHS Gleason shot left, though.
I hate seeing a defensive RD in #8. Nightmares of Komisarek.
We should move all pending UFAs. Bozak, Lupul, Polak, Robidas, and if possible, by some miracle, Clarkson, can all go too, but those guys will be harder to move at the deadline, easier at the draft.
Stockpile picks. Use extra picks to trade up in the draft, if we're out of range to take Marner, Hanifin or Strome.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: Back At It vs. Devils
I think if Phaneuf is going to be traded, it probably won't be until the summer. Same goes for Kessel.
1 month ago on Tuesday Mashup: Life without Dion
People still defend Clarkson. It's insane. It was a terrible idea to sign him. It always was. People really need to stop putting "heart" above actual hockey-playing ability.
1 month, 1 week ago on Wednesday Mashup: Road trip continues in Anaheim
This Max Domi nonsense is Brayden Schenn all over again.
I know the Sabres are a joke, but Cody Hodgson only has 6 points in 42 games. That's amazing.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on William Nylander is coming to Toronto
@Cameron19 @JMAC17 @Yaknowwhat I'll never understand why Randy decided to convert Dion from the shooter to the QB on the PP. He should be at the top of the right circle, taking one-timers. I bet he could be a 15-goal guy again.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Sunday Mashup: On the road again
Better late than never, I suppose. Wooooooo!
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Randy Carlyle Fired
Gotta think Vrana and Pastrnak get something going for the Czechs
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Game 38 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Bruins 3 (SO)
Poor Valiev. Nylander is going to make him look so bad.
Nylander to Lindblom. This is a recording.
I should go to the gym. But Nylander is on TV. #FirstWorldProblems
@skiingallday @DWCMLHS When they switch positions so Nylander is on the left point, and Forsling on the right, Willy can set up one-timers for Forsling allll day.
The Nylander line with Kempe and Forsling is a deadly PP unit. Kempe plays with them because Nylander moves back to the point. Forsling leads all Dmen in the tourney in points.
Nylander is going to either score or set up a goal on the 5-on-3. I think it's inevitable.
