@Burtonboy @Yaknowwhat In Canada it's a little lower at around 40%. (At least it was last time I checked but that stat was from 2006).

@CanuckUKinToronto @TuckerForPunishment @MaxwellHowe 5 Leafs below the hash marks and no one picked up Horton. Sure Franson lost Lucic but he also didn't want to chase him behind the net. I feel like letting him go and switching off to a new man is a typical play there. Anyways no one was on Horton as I mentioned so was Franson at fault? Partly but the rest of the team also failed to pick up Horton.

@MaxwellHowe @sniperstar @4evrblue The biggest thing with Clarkson is that another team would probably take him in an expansion draft. He has a track record of scoring despite his down year and would probably gamble on getting a 30 goal scorer with him out there.

@LeafFan15 Where abouts are you? There are a handful of rinks in my area that have ball hockey during the summer. But no one seems to go to them.
@4evrblue Wait was Bruffins banned?
@4evrblue I want to keep Reimer over Bernier and I'm in the minority on that but I just like him better. I don't want to start a war on this but Reimer would be my pick for a goalie.As for DManPh9, Gardiner, Franson, Rielly, Robidas.ForwardsKessel, Bozak, JVR, Lupul, Kadri, Holland, Komarov, Santorelli, Booth.
Ahhh here is a qustion I've been wondering about. Can xbox 360 users play NHL15 with xbox one users?

@loomx @sniperstar @Murph2417 @Mcost61 Well, it's not just NHL15. There are other games coming out that also peak my interest.
@steele123 @Reether You should join @Murph2417's GM connected league.
@mcloki That's what Rielly and Gardiner will do for us next season. Don't worry.

@Murph2417 @sniperstar @Mcost61 Yeah, although a lot of the games that will be coming out look amazing.
6 days, 17 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Leafs Links
@Murph2417 @sniperstar @Mcost61 Yeah. I figured that, which kind of sucks so I might just grab one when September starts. Don't really want to wait b/c most of my buddys on xbox are upgrading and moving on to the xbox one when NHL15 comes out.
@Murph2417 @sniperstar @Mcost61 Damn... maybe I should go buy an xbox one now. I was just hoping to wait for a sale on the xbox one but haven't seen one yet.
6 days, 18 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Leafs Links
@Murph2417 @Mcost61 Demo came out today right? I better check it out.
@MaxwellHowe I think we keep him simply so he can be a voice on the team. As well, he can continue to mentor Rielly and Gardiner through the growing pains of what would probably be a rebuild.
1 week, 5 days ago on Maple Leafs hire Brandon Pridham as new assistant GM
@-Keon You weren't excited during the shortened season or the 02 play off run?
@dlb Mad @sniperstar Shhhh. ;) It just goes to show Kessel is better than Toews.
@Greg Fenton @dlb Mad But Kane thinks Kessel is the best player he's ever played with.
@Greg Fenton @Cameron19 @Mind Bomb @ingy56 Kessel went before Brassard b/c he was a much better player and he also played C for a while in the US. Kessel was thought to be the American Crosby at one time.JVR, and Kane were straight up better players than Turris and many believed that during the draft.Ovechkin was so highly touted that Buffalo tried to draft him the year before with some stupid logic. There are differences here than with the Nylander situation.
1 week, 6 days ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
@Greg Fenton @Cameron19 @ingy56 He was listed as 5'8 162 lbs on NHL.com during the draft.
@Walter_White @Komas Taberle @ingy56 Ritchie himself is big and skilled but I know what you mean. High end skill like Nylander's can't be taught.
@JMAC17 Gardiner ofc. As a Leaf fan if one of our guys is on there with comparables I always take the Leaf.
2 weeks ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
@Bobsyouruncle He's free to join the Marlies by all accounts. I think his contract was up.
@loomx @Yaknowwhat I think that would seal 3rd in the Atlantic depending on who we beat.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Second Assistant GM Hire to Come Next Week
@loomx If we move those guys. We better be grabbing 5 other first rounders. (Not necessarily all from this years draft)
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @sniperstar For sure. Their health has a lot to do with it but just watching Reimer the past two and a half years now. I just can't see him sitting and waiting for his chance. No he is going to go out there, perform and take back the no. 1. Just my 2 cents. I could be completely wrong but I feel it's the times when Reimer is counted out that he really comes back strong.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Friday Mashup: Second Assistant GM Hire to Come Next Week
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I think we start the year with Bernier in net as our no. 1. With Reimer obviously getting the periodic starts. (As cam mentioned 50/30 split). I think by Dec though we may see Reimer make a real push for the no. 1 and possibly even taking it form Bernier.
@ingy56 @sniperstar Ahhh does it now? I hate the Habs as it is so I guess it would be a good chance to re-affirm that hatred. ;)
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Wake me up when it’s hockey season
@ingy56 @sniperstar It would certainly be worth getting a look at some of these Classic games. So many legends I never got to see play. It would be a great chance to look at what made these players so amazing.
@ingy56 @sniperstar Ohhh man. I have to check out that game. Will keep my eyes open for it for sure.

PotvinAs a younger Leafs fan I didn't get to watch a lot of these guys but from reading and listening to others anecdotes about these players I think my all time team would look like this.
As well, guys I've watched play would probably get the benefit of the doubt b/c I've seen them.
With all the talk of honouring old Leafs. What would your all time Leafs team look like? If you could take 23 players that had a significant stint with the Leafs. Who would they be?
@dlb Mad @Burtonboy Wasn't Brown on the top 50 prospects on hockeysfuture?

3 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: The Swarm & Coaching Duties
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Alec Brownscombe I think for the off-season it's a very good tool to help get conversation going. Having a conversation go way off topic on a thread with a specific purpose discourages posters. I know when I first found MLHS the topics went all over and I didn't bother posting b/c it was too hard to keep up. I also wanted to talk about the topic in the article, which people had already moved on from. When the season comes in though and more people start posting I might agree with you in terms of having two threads going. Might be a little weird but as it stands now it seems to be working quite well.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Are you talking about the Ark of the Covenant or the Tabernacle? b/c the Ark was simply the box and could have been carried by a group of people.
@Jmessih I would have pushed hard for 3.7 but Bozak's cap as you said isn't too much of a problem. He's also versatile in if we find a replacement for him at 1C we can drop him to the 3C role and have a pretty good set of Cs.

@ShiftyD @sniperstar @TheCanucksnaphook @Yaknowwhat Yeah. I was just hoping it wouldn't take the place of sport but it really seems to be.
@ShiftyD @sniperstar @Yaknowwhat
@TheCanucksnaphook @sniperstar @ShiftyD @Yaknowwhat Very much so. The Koreans are the best team in the world b/c they have the best player and are so systematic in their play. Everything they do is planned out to the smallest detail.
@ShiftyD @sniperstar @Yaknowwhat I don't advise that ;). Many of the kids that play look like the typical geek you'd see on television.
@TheCanucksnaphook @sniperstar @ShiftyD @Yaknowwhat Actually, most of the kids that still go to school are idolized the same way we probably would a guy like Clark or Gilmour. And those that aren't probably don't even go to school anymore. Korea has facilities to train kids much like we have the CHL.
@ShiftyD @sniperstar @Yaknowwhat Yeah, I was quite surprised when I saw it but a couple of my friends are really into the video games and they sometimes show me the clips. It's ridiculous how big it's becoming. I think the prize money for the World League of Legend Championships is at 2 million now. This is split b/w a team of 5.
@Yaknowwhat The thing is. A lot of them now sit down and watch video games for hours the same way we will sit down and watch the Leafs. In Korea professional gaming is taking off, they fill stadiums with teenagers who are screaming and applauding players for their skill.Even in the US it is becoming bigger and bigger to the point professional gamers are considered athletes so they can get visas easier. As well, one University in the US is offering a scholarship for this video game called League of Legends.
