@The_Polish_Cannon Asset management. Let's hope this changes.
2 days, 11 hours ago on GDT: Game #64, Toronto Maple Leafs at Florida Panthers (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
I just noticed that two leaf draft choices have scored the winning goal for Florida in the last two meetings between the 2 clubs. B.Boyes and J. Hayes.
Asset management has been so poor for so long I'm not sure how long it might take to build back up the asset pool. IMO going into this season Nonis has been just as bad as the past GMs at asset management, hopefully under the leadership of Shanny this will change.

2 days, 12 hours ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto
@DeclanK Seeking damages from one of the team owners. This may not go too well for us fans.
I fullly expected this to happen though.
@Nylanderthal Changes are needed for sure. Split up that top line totally. A combined minus 64 on the season?
Move JVR to the second line and move Bozak to the 3rd line.
Komorov - Kadri - Kessel
JVR - Holland - Panik
Lupul - Bozak - Kozun
Sill - Lindstrom - Booth
Listed as healthy scratch on mapleleafs.nhl.com but who knows until warm up.

After Neuvirth stole a couple games recently I knew he had to go.

By the time Arizona develops all the young players and draft picks they will no longer be in Arizona.
@Mitch_S2 Mike failed math!

@DWCMLHS High risk high reward type of prospect.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Leafs Trade Mike Santorelli & Cody Franson to the Nashville Predators
@wendelsfist I want Nonis to bag skate Carlyle tomorrow too.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on GDT: Game #19, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Nashville Predators (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
Leafs got what they deserved tonight.
After a good first period they were out worked and out played the rest of the game. Played pretty sloppy and made way too many turn overs.
And the first line had a horrible game over all.
4 months, 4 weeks ago on GDT: Game #1, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., Sportsnet)
Good 1st period. Lousy second period with way too many unforced turn overs . Hoping we turn it back around for the 3rd.
@TheLoovTrain On the leaf website, McLaren is on the roster too. Nooooooooooooooo!

@mike_84 @Loric76 Probably by the time the puck drops. 7:00 official time though.
Anyone know where Loov was assigned to?
@Cameron19 B's now have all those additional assets to make a trade later at the trade deadline for a better option. B's made a good move.
5 months ago on Saturday Mashup: final rosters to come shortly
@mike_84 @TOHockeyNut Hawks also need to move another player to make the CAP or only start with a 22 man roster. What do you propose there.

@mike_84 Who are we trading away first to make room?
@ingy56 Due to the age difference I am not suprised.

@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs I think he would be worth a shot. But wait how can RC fit Orr in then.
5 months ago on Wednesday Mashup: Bye Bye Carter?
@ingy56 @Mattmark @loomx I think you are correct!
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Sunday Mashup: Covering the points, line possibilities
@loomx @Burtonboy Just creating more competition at camp for the 7th D spot I would guess. Nothing wrong with a little competition.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Spencer Abbott signs one-year deal
@JMAC17 A long term deal would be ideal I agree, but that is why we probably won't see any deal announced for Jake until after Franson and Reimer are settled and Nonis has a better idea of the CAP situation.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on The Cody Franson Arbitration: What is he Worth?
@Mattmark Franson can not sign an offer sheet as he elected for arbitration.
@Dewy Keon Hogturd I don't think so. I just think it's a negotiating tactic to try and settle for over 3 or have the arbitrator award in that area.
To me Nonis did low ball at 2 mil and that is a negotiating tactic as well.
Look at Frason's history defensively speaking.
He couldn't earn the trust of Wilson and was quite often a healthy scratch.
He played fairly well on the third pairing with Mark Fraser being sheltered during the shortened season.
He was then given a more prominent role last year playing against tougher competition and did not do so well.
So would you pay him as a top 4 D? IMO No.
Would you pay him as a 3rd pairing D? IMO No.
Because he has the offensive ability especially on the power play IMO he should be paid somewhere in between the 2.
@.JVR. @TOHockeyNut I don't think that there is any date deadline for offer sheets on RFA that are unsigned and where arbitration was not chosen. Didn't Calgary Offer sheet ROR in September?
@mtommy @Optimustic @.JVR. I believe that since Franson filed for arbitration offer sheets are no longer in question.
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs Nonis coming in at 2 is about as rude as Franson coming in at 4.2.
Leafs only team in the East to NOT make a single move.
1 year ago on NHL Trade Deadline Day: Is there anything doing in Leafland?
@ingy56 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs Unfortunately!
@Jon5200 But at least making the playoffs would be nice.
The top teams in the league find ways to win. This team goes on these streaks finding ways to lose proving that they are not there yet. They beat themselves the other night against the Islanders and they did the same tonight.

@TheCanucksnaphook I'd rather be in Florida too.
1 year ago on Shark Club Game Day: Maple Leafs at Lightning (7:30 p.m., Leafs TV)
@mr_hanie @TOHockeyNut After the most recent four game losing skid Nonis had a behind closed doors meeting with the players. The compete level has been great the last number of games and look at the results. This team overall did not compete last night at all.
1 year ago on Game Review: Game #58, Panthers 4 vs. Leafs 1
After watching last nights game it looks like Nonis will have to have another long talk with the players. The performance, or lack there of, last night was an embarrassment for what are supposed to be professionals and very high payed ones at that. There are no excuses. The players, or most of them anyway, just basically took the night off and did not compete.
If this team misses the playoffs we can only look back at this and other games like it that cost them the berth.
@PepTalk @gjdevlin Bad luck charm?
1 year ago on Game Day: Maple Leafs at Florida Panthers (7:30 p.m., SNet)
This team seems to get some success and then a couple days off and just comes up empty.
36 holes on the gold coarse can do this to you. Just ask a few of the members here.
Leafs taking their annual Florida vacation I see.
@Black_Hawk Ranger has a NTC.

Good luck to you Mark Fraser. All the best in Edmonton. Say hello to Scrivens for us!
Good opportunity for Srivens. Eakins knows him and must have had a say in his going to Edmonton.

Should have been i win in regulation.
1 year, 1 month ago on GDT: Devils at Maple Leafs (7 p.m., Leafs TV)
5 Regulation/OT wins now in 32 games. Are we the worst team in the league? Our record over that span would indicate that we are. Bottom line is RC can not seem to get this team in the win column and that is all that counts. Good effort accolades are for teams in full rebuild mode like Buffalo.
