Good, now I can goto bed, haha.


Staying up to watch those OT games and then waking up at 5:30 for work isn't a good combination

NVM, I just looked it up and it's called the 27-7 rule.


Either 27 years old or 7 years of NHL service

I know under the pre-2005 lockout, you had to be 31 to get UFA rights, but under the post 2005-lockout they changed it to a certain number of years in the league.

I guess there is probably still an age number tied into it, but I really have no idea what that would be now.

Yea, I've heard that on here before, but I just don't know how that could possibly happen.

I though Unrestricted Free Agency was tied into number of seasons played in the NHL.

How the fuck does that happen, lol?


I'm pretty sure he was a RFA heading into this season.  Unless the Leafs failed to tender him a qualifying offer, shouldn't he still be restricted, as he didn't end up signing?

Possibly, but what happens when every player not on the ice already gets suspended for 10 games?

I'm hoping Clarkson can have a rebound year.


Bolland between Komarov and Clarkson does the trick too.

Just think, San Jose was able to draft Couture, in part because we traded them our 1st overall pick for a washed up Owen Nolan

Just a quick question, is there a reason Brennan wasn't called up this season or atleast named the (temporary) Captain of the Marlies when it was determined Smith was sticking with the Leafs?

Love Raffi Torres.

I said a few of years ago the Leafs should have signed him, but what does Burkie do?  

Waste $3 million on Armstrong!

So, is that the new role of the GM?

Basically just a placeholder to take the fall when for the real people calling the shots.

Not sure you can call that hit "interference", although he did kind of charge him.

I think it's about time the player taking the hit owns some of the responsibility.  I mean, just because a player isn't looking, doesn't mean you shouldn't be allowed to hit him.


I'm not looking forward to seeing NHL players about 20 years from now, when players who were raised with no body contact for the majority of their minor hockey days are suddenly expected to be aware of the threat of body contact.


DAMN HOCKEY MOMS!!

Yea, right now we have the cap space, but once you resigns some RFA's and fill out the rest of the roster, there won't be enough left to add a $5+ million player.


I'm guessing if you were to bring him in, Kadri would be getting traded?

@Wilbur

Nope, I really can't see both of them staying and O'Reilly is already under contract and is much younger, so he'll be the one to stay.


Besides, we don't have the cap space to sign Stastny anyways.

Yup, almost two years older, when you consider Brown was born in January, while MacKinnon has a September birthday.

Depends what profile you look at for them, but I've seen Brown listed as anywhere from 160-170 lbs., while MacKinnon is listed as 182 lbs and Brown is basically two years older.

Yup, they got away with too much shit to keep track of, but the elbow on JVR is the one that will stick with me.


I mean, the ref was standing right there looking at them as they got up and Kelly blatantly elbowed him right in the face.


Forget the no-penalty call for a minute, I still don't know how that wasn't a suspension, especially since the NHL is susposed to be cracking down on "head shots"

Don't follow those other sports closely enough to know the racial backgrounds of their GMs, but it's hard to believe it took this long for one to manage a team.


I guess it's no different than hockey though, with Columbus' GM being the first European manager, after all these years of the best Europeans coming to North America to play.

I'll never forget the elbow to the face JVR took as he was getting up, with the ref looking right at it and not even thinking for a second about calling it.

Might be a lesson to learn here regarding Tyler Biggs, as they sound quite similar.

Everybody is ready to give up on the poor kid, but maybe he is a late bloomer and all he needs is 5 seasons or so in the AHL.


I'm sick of the Leafs giving up on their young players before they reach their potential.  (Steen, Tlusty, Boyes, Coliacovo, Stralman, etc)
