How about this for a starting night roster?
JVR - Bozak - Kessel
Komarov - Kadri - Frattin
Leivo - Holland - Lupul
Winnik - Santorelli - Clarkson
(Ashton & Orr)
Phaneuf - Robidas
Rielly - Polak
Gardiner - Franson
If Franson isn't ready to go, put Granberg in his place.
1 day, 2 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Leafs Make Cuts, Booth Out 4 Weeks
That's fine, let him develop over there for another season and then give him a year with the Marlies to get used to North America, then he might be ready to crack the NHL.
Maybe Mikkelson will get offered an AHL contract then.

Could also just leave the JVR/Bozak/Kessel line together and put Booth with Holland and Clarkson (Lupul with Kadri and Frattin), but that weakens the third line to the point where the opposition wouldn't have to watch them nearly as much.

I don't think Ashton will clear waivers in order to be sent down, so he'll likely be kept on as the 13th forward with the Leafs, but damn..... that's looks like a Calder Cup contender.
Percy - Granberg
Finn - Nilsson
Loov - MacWilliam
Former 30 goal scorer too, so we know he has the ability.
Not sure if anybody knows this, but Booth won the most exciting player award his first year in Vancouver.
Why is that interesting?
Here's what I wanna see Oct. 8th vs. the schabs
Booth - Bozak - Kessel
JVR - Kadri - Frattin
Lupul - Holland - Clarkson
Winnik - Santorelli - Komarov
I know Booth has done absolutely nothing to deserve a spot on the top line and I'll probably take some heat for putting him there, but this balances things out and gives us 3 scoring lines.
Kontiola, Carrick and Leivo goto the Marlies and wait for injuries to occur.
Percy & Granberg are the first defencemen on the call-up list for defencemen.
Post the Mac in the USSR point totals from last year too.
Didn't sound like he was too happy playing under Carlye to being with, so being bought out was probably the best thing for both parties.
There really wasn't any room for him, but I suppose he or Kadri could have moved to the wing.
Leivo and Carrick can start the season with the Marlies.
Extra time in the American League never hurt anybody and they will get their shot when the inevitable injuries occur.
Leivo will replace Lupul when he predictably goes down and Carrick can step in if a centre hits the IR.
That's if his cheekbone is even broken.

@Bring the Cup Home
He got an assist?
So, how long does a player miss with a broken cheekbone?
Is that who he's playing with tonight?
If so, how the hell is he gonna keep up?
4 days, 2 hours ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
Ya, I was thinking Rielly too, but I almost have to go with van Riemsdyk, lol
I could see Abbott being claimed
@Jmessih You're welcome
Damn right it is, but I think I could probably save the $31.95 by getting it shipped to one of my coworkers mailboxes in the States.
Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but Smith, Marshall and Abbott have been placed on waivers with the intention of being sent to the Marlies.
They ship to Canada, but you don't get free shipping.
Same price, but you have to pay $12.95 shipping and $19 duty/tax
In the London game he did and he looked half decent there, but against Ottawa's basically full-team, he was playing with Holland and Frattin. Not exactly chumps, but they were probably matched up against the Senaturd's best all game.
4 days, 9 hours ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
With that being said, he definitely had a chance to really impress playing against other team's prospects.
Ya, i have no doubt he'll be on the team to start the season, but if he doesn't pick up the pace soon, I could see him starting on the 4th line, while Winnik or Komarov move up to the "top nine".
Honestly wouldn't mind seeing Komarov/Kadri/Frattin reunited.
4 days, 10 hours ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
I'd like to see him given a chance in preseason on a scoring line before i make up my mind and playing with Holland and Frattin against what was basically Ottawa's full team is not a chance.
With Kontiola struggling in camp, I can't see him cracking the lineup to start the season, unless of course he turns things around real fast.
Anyways, with that being said, here's what I'd like to see Oct. 8.
JVR - Bozak - Kessel
Booth - Kadri - Frattin
(Kontiola & Ashton)
I wouldn't mind seeing Booth and JVR swap places to balance things out, but like Randy said, you'd have to be an idiot to break up the top line!
Phaneuf - Polak
Rielly - Robidas
(Holzer or Tallinder if Holzer is waiver-exempt)
Could swap Polak and Robidas if,
a. Robidas is healthy enough
b. Polak can't handle top pairing duty
If Robidas isn't ready to go to start the season, I'd try Holzer with Rielly as the third pairing and keep Tallinder around as the 7th defenceman.
Ya, I've been saying the same sine I heard Carlyle say he wants three balanced scoring lines this year.
If Booth doesn't make the team, perhaps Winnik or Komarov move up and Ashton makes the team.

Oh ya, and on defence:
4 days, 19 hours ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
Just to let you know, if you're still on here, King Kadri hasn't written me back yet.
I'll try emailing him again.
4 days, 21 hours ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
Go Leafs Go!
1 week ago on GDT: Preseason Game #2, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Philadelphia Flyers (7pm, TSN4)
Alright, I sent him the email and didn't you read any of the threads in the message board?
1 week ago on Tuesday Mashup: Leafs/Flyers Part II
Loov Train and Gardiner Express
What other Smith is there, other than Trevor?
Ah, didn't you check in at all between August 15th and September 15th?
I'm gonna email the other owner and see what he says.
Would be better to keep the original owners in.
I activated the pool on August 15th and started a thread called "roll call", everybody was to say when they activated their team for the season.
I didn't hear anything from you and gave you till Septem15th to reply, but didn't get any response, so I found a new owner.
I might be able to get you back in though.
That's interesting, cause the pool was activated for a month and I didn't hear anything from him.
I posted numerous times asking him to say something, but he never replied, so I figured he had quit.
Ah, will probably have to be bigger than 30,000 to get teh Winter Classic
You hit send email from my profile, cause I haven't sen anything yet.
What email address did you send it to?
It's called preseason
Will it be expandable to 40,000+ for major events?
I think he's been ready for awhile, but was miscast as a top pairing defenceman when he was called up, while he should be a bottom pairing defenceman.
With the way Holzer played last night, I think he'll be in the lineup on Oct. 6 if:
A: Robidas isn't ready yet
B. Franson gets traded
Ya, there is really absolutely no benefit in him doing that
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
He did say good numbers, didn't he?
You actually keep track of that kind of stuff?
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Spencer Abbott signs one-year deal
It shouldn't have to be worth "their while", as it as a fan fest. All that matters is whether it was worthwhile for the fans that showed up and from what I'm hearing, it wasn't!
Hmmm, now am curious as to what he wrote, lol
