Sounds like one hell of a top 4 to me.

@Bruffins Kessel is scoring 50. Book it.

@BlueSmoke @colino17 @LeafsGuru Wasn't that obvious since some needed clarification on it.

@vinoa @The_Polish_Cannon If we are judging players based on first NHL goals now. Bozak is our best player.

@Jordan29 @sniperstar I think it gives Clarkson a better chance at succeeding personally. JVR is a big body that knows how to play the cycle game. Creates space for Clarkson. Ofc this is all just guessing.

Lupul and Kessel have shown to be capable together.

Also it spreads out the offence a little more.

@Pent_House I think Winnik is a winger more than a C at this point.

@RandomScrub I'd want Winnik and Komarov on the 3rd line with Kontiola. Just a piss and vinegar line that is hard to play against and good defensively.

@Jordan29 I'm not entirely sure about the top 6 staying the same. I might go back to
Lupul - Bozak - Kessel and try
JVR - Kadri - Clarkson

@RandomScrub @sniperstar @drummond @The_Polish_Cannon I agree with you but I wouldn't mind if they were in the line up every once in a while. Don't think it'll happen though.

@drummond @The_Polish_Cannon I don't mind one of them for the odd game but they should not be regulars this season and honestly probably won't see any time on the Leafs.

@N_Leafs @sniperstar @RandomScrub @The_Polish_Cannon Yeah and I respect that he took that small cut. But he is still a player that wouldn't be worth that 5.25.

@NiagaraFallsThunder @sniperstar @CanuckUKinToronto I don't think Smith was the problem. The problem was Smithson was also among that group.

@RandomScrub @drummond If it is Clarkson I wonder how and who would want him with the way his value has plummeted.

@N_Leafs @RandomScrub @The_Polish_Cannon I don't mind Clarkson but if he really came to Toronto b/c he wanted to play here he could have taken something like 4.2 rather than that 5.25 he took.

@Ze_theLeafsFan Ashton needs to go on Waivers. Probably gets scooped up if we put him there.

@dlb Mad @sniperstar Maybe he wanted too much money at the time but now that everything has died down he took less. He may have also just wanted to come home?

@CanuckUKinToronto @sniperstar Forgot to mention him. He can also come in if we really get killed by the injury bug.

I like this Winnik deal. It also gives us depth at C as we now have all of these players that can slot in at the C position.
Bozak
Kadri
Santorelli
Holland
Kontiola
Komarov
Winnik

@mike-username They have to earn their spot. Beat out one of the guys like Winnik, Bodie, Kontiola, etc.

@Cloud09 He can also play both C and W if I'm not mistaken.

@Cloud09 I don't like the idea of putting our 3 best offensive players on the same line personally.
JVR - Bozak - Kessel
Lupul - Kadri - _____

Spreads out our talent and makes us have two dangerous lines.

@Burtonboy @sniperstar That's true. I don't see him clearing either but in the case he does I'd be pissed.

Leafs just tweeted that we signed Winnik. If I'm Ashton I think I'm really pissed I took the two way deal now.

@The_Polish_Cannon @Cloud09 Kadri and Lupul could also work some magic together.

@Jmessih @Burtonboy @sniperstar Well I don't really see the 4th line as being a 4th line. I would play the 3rd or 4th line more than the other depending on who is going.

@Burtonboy @sniperstar That's possible too. I just saw Santorelli as a good C. I don't mind Holland moving to C and Santi playing the wing in his stead.

I now see us as a 4 line team. If RC sticks to his pairing of players the lines seem pretty obvious for next year.

JVR - Bozak - Kessel
Lupul - Kadri - Frattin
Komarov - Kontiola - Clarkson
Booth - Santorelli - Holland 
Ashton

This makes us 4 lines deep and i love it.

Reply

@djamon @sniperstar That's true. Different sports have different builds that help.
 My dad played hockey too but he was basically a shadow back when you could have a player do that. He fought and gooned it up (probably where I get it from) but he could also play in his own end.

@djamon @sniperstar He wrestled for Canada when he was 17 and played on the Canadian Jr. Rugby team. Albeit not big sports in Canada but my dad was an athlete. 
Okay I think played Rugby for them is an overstatement. He was on the team LOL. But you get my point I hope.
Besides my dad is a fit freak. He bikes to and from work everyday and lifts 3-4 times a week. He eats healthy but he looks somewhat like Kessel's build. He just doesn't lose that little bit of fat that Kessel seems to have.

@RandomScrub @sniperstar This is getting excessive. I mean sure he isn't a Rob Brind'Amour but the guy isn't fat either. He's chubby at worst but from what I see in the pictures he really just looks like a thick guy. Real solid build. Similar to that of my dad.

@docmma @sniperstar @Burtonboy We don't know how much money was the factor though. If it was a couple million I can see the worries with signing MDZ. But as it stands it's all speculation as to what the money problem was exactly.
