Peter Puck got Gretzky with a personal service contract; he basically stole him away from the draft.

@Komas Taberle @Habskilla @Dangle_My_Berries @wiski
Burke and Nonnis did this all the time to win the College player sweepstakes; I don't know why people are trying to imply genius on Shanny's part...it was probably Nonnis' idea
I seem to remember Ballard changing away from the pointed Leaf had something to do with Leafs not having control of the copy right for that sweater

I imagine if Burke was able to steal the Sedins away from Van like he'd planned; things might have worked out differently in T.O.
@TuckerForCompassion @Brozak @TheColborneUltimatum @ninepaces @GibsonLPStudio
Burke did nothing but shoot his mouth off; then he brought in a bunch of players that talk a good game but bail on the ice once the pace of the game gets a little gritty. Shanny was never a big talker but delivered on the ice through his entire career. I for one am happy to see that he is taking the same approach into management and I have liked what he has done so far.

Everybody throws that comment in Fletcher's face; he made that comment in the world before the salary cap. Back then Toronto would spend their way to a good team.

@Mike Clemons @docmma @DeclanK
I find Button is more concerned with causing a stir then reporting accuracy.
No, the only reason it works is because Horton's salary is part of your original cap hit; if your already at the cap, you won't be able to add Horton
I'm saying Mike is wrong...it can't be done
if you had the room to take Horton's contract you'd have room for Lupul's ; so why would you need to take on Horton's in the 1st place.
and Olie Jokinen
1 month ago on Leafs re-acquire TJ Brennan in exchange for Spencer Abbott
Brennan was the pwr play QB on the Marlies last year; they have struggled this year without him. I think this is a move to help the Marlies playoff push.
I think Reimer made a similar save

@ingy56 @North Kariya
I don't get why people don't see any value in Holzer, I've always liked him as a D man
1 month ago on Leafs Notebook – February 23rd
I don't think Kessel would have even made team Canada; team Canada relied heavily on the all round game...that was their strength.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: Goals? Never heard of ‘em
@Zep2 Missouri is the show me state
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #18, Buffalo Sabres 6 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 2
a small thing, your 2nd headline...rebuilding the team would be wrong the call...

Season ticket holders should organize a law suit against the NHL for presenting inferior competition. In the old days part of home ice advantage was always being the rested team
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs claim Richard Panik off the waiver wire
@Bring the Cup Home
One of Orr / Mclaren might get claimed, but I doubt both will so we still have one to call up for a game through the next month of the season.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs cut Colton Orr, Fraser McLaren, William Nylander; Roster down to 23
I don't think you can jump to that conclusion...too many variables.
5 months, 4 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: Final Preseason Game Day
Carlisle used Komarov at center last time through...he was very good on the draw, everybody got very excited but Komarov said he preferred the wing because there was a lot more action on the boards.
@Cameron19 @jcg_4 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Xxxxxnew
Come on Cameron; you start off by throwing a guy under the bus based on town gossip and then boldly go on to proclaim that "all these guy's are into drugs" I thought you were an English major
5 months, 4 weeks ago on Thursday Mashup
@Cameron19 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Xxxxxnew
I would have thought you knew better then to believe in gossip and innuendo; your treading in murky waters treating this stuff like fact
This case is different. He's coming to a new team looking for leadership and he diddles around like he's better then he is. We've already got too many of those kind of guys. Look at Winik, he's busting his ass; that's the kind of guy we need.
6 months ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
Reading down the thread I think some of you guys are giving Booth way too much slack. He looks disinterested so far this camp and I think if he keeps it up there is no way they will let him into this group considering the push for the new culture. In fact he could be the perfect example since the team has no real investment in him.
If that was your reasoning for Phook...then you guys are taking yourselves way too seriously
6 months ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
Burke doesn't get enough credit for acquiring our high end talent...Kessel, JVR, Gardiner, Lupul, Kadri and Reilly to name a few. Once our team figures out that talent alone won't be enough to make them a winner we will see what this team can do.
Biggs was wrong to take that shot, it's one of those golden rules of hockey...you can not shot wide off the wing on the PK cause if you miss it rings around the boards and gives the opposition an out numbered attack.

too bad...that was good last year
6 months, 1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
They better reinstate him soon or we'll miss the training camp up dates
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @RandomPhookinScrub @jcg_4
so it was a post that no one really saw?
you got a passable explanation for what Phook did to get banned; it's been over a week hasn't it?
in other words, I missed it, what happened
@ingy56 @jcg_4 @Burtonboy
I've never liked him,,,to me he's nothing but hot air; the sooner he's gone the better as far as I'm concerned
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: Loov returning to Sweden? Leafs invite Cal Heeter to camp?
who knows, maybe there is money involved
do we know that or are we assuming
Is it possible that Leiweke knows what he's doing and is trying to get an early exit.
I believe they added these guys to trade a couple at the deadline...smart move in a rebuild I would say
7 months, 1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Analytics, Analytics… Nothing but Analytics
now they can put him in a room and pay him to shut up
7 months, 1 week ago on Maple Leafs hire Brandon Pridham as new assistant GM

7 months, 2 weeks ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
I hate this kind of article; conjecture disguised as fact
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: The Swarm & Coaching Duties
8 months ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
probably mixing it up with the rookie tournament in sept.
8 months, 1 week ago on MLHS in conversation with Dave Morrison – Part 1
I saw a picture of Nylander doing pull ups at the leaf camp and was pleasantly surprised with the size of his arms and shoulders. He looks bigger than alot of the current Leafs...he looks like he enjoys the gym.
@philthethrill @Bruffins @wendelsfist
That's because it is the players fault, some people on here just can't bring themselves to admit that some of their favorite players have become entitled and are unwilling to do the spade work that it takes to win.
8 months, 1 week ago on Wednesday Mashup: Dubas Mania
Saw a picture of Nylander doing pullups on the Leaf site; he is huge compared to Kadri. Kadri look's like he hasn't lifted a weight in his life.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Maple Leafs re-sign Peter Holland to 2-year, $1.55 million deal
I think you guys are not acknowledging that Ashton was given every opportunity to succeed in the early season but kept getting his face broken or his ass handed to him cause he was trying to be a tough guy.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on 10 Midsummer Thoughts on the Maple Leafs
You don't think we gave up a lot of leads to empty netters in the last couple of years?
9 months ago on Toronto Maple Leafs Updated Depth Chart
Both Frattin and Komarov could really get in on the fore check...we missed that last year
Maybe they will sign Kulimen after he gets a better sense of his worth, or lack there of, on the open market.
I think the way he scored empty netters was a valued skill in it's own right; would be kind of nice to have a guy like that to throw over the boards in that situation to help lock down the win.
