The Cup or Bust.
@LN-093 @sniperstar He does seem like it right now. But as we have all seen. He can be dominant and if he turns that on suddenly we see another DMan sitting out.

@LN-093 It's not giving up on him if we move him for another piece. It'd be giving up on him to sell him for picks. I think we only move one of Gards or Naz if it makes this team better now and for the future.

@Anthony Petrielli May he RIP.

@Bring the Cup Home @mike_84 I think you are looking at Gards + for Eberle. If we are being realistic.

@MikeGartner11 @sniperstar @Pent_House @ingy56 Yeah. I liked some of our picks this year that are going NCAA. I mentioned somewhere in the thread. Dakota Joshua. I like his size and skill. He was playing on a stacked team last year and should be given a bigger chance to score and succeed this year. I think he's currently over a ppg this season in the USHL.

@MikeGartner11 @Pent_House @ingy56 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMMblasTNLgSome highlights from Tony.
@MikeGartner11 @Pent_House @ingy56 Yeah. Toninato is listed at 6'0 on Hockey's future. Looks like he could become a good 3rd liner for us. Cameranesi has some wheels though. Which I think, gives him a better chance of making the team than Abbott does.
@ingy56 @Pent_House @MikeGartner11 I believe he is too.
@MaxwellHowe @Mcost61 Probably was based on alphabetical order. No matter. Good to see Brown and Leivo tied with Abott for that lead.
@Bring the Cup Home We have some nice Euro prospects for sure and some great OHL guys. Our NCAA guys haven't had the chance to develop in college. We really won't see most of them for at least 4 years. I'm really rooting for Dakota Joshua b/c I think he can be a good 3rd line player.

@Dogger Continuing from last season? He was unreal in the CHL too.

Okay boys. Lecture is starting. Cheers.

@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy @Mcost61 For the month of Oct. Then they will fall back down to Earth.
@TheLoovTrain @sniperstar @ingy56 @Yaknowwhat Not that kind of personal training Lol.
@TheLoovTrain @ingy56 @Yaknowwhat All of mine are personal training ads.
@Yaknowwhat I love Reimer but with the way Bernier played in the last two games. You go to him.
Good morning everyone!
@Jmessih @sniperstar @docmma For sure. I have a lot of friends at UofOttawa. I sent texts on my way home to see if they were all alright. Thankfully they were all home and safe by the time I texted them.

@Jmessih @sniperstar I would have done the same. Glad to hear your family was safe through out the events today.

I was sickened when I heard about the shootings. To the point I got up and left my lecture and went home for the day. Reading about what happened and watching the news reports really got to me. My prayers and thoughts are with all affected today. I hope everyone on here is alright.
@TheGroobster @Cameron19 @Yaknowwhat Did you just call the Nazi's Christians?
@Mcost61 @sniperstar @Komas Taberle That works too.
2 days, 19 hours ago on Game Review: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs 5 vs. New York Islanders 2
@Mcost61 @sniperstar @Komas Taberle Well. Don't subdue him with a fight. Subdue him with a big hit. Or have JVR give him the Clutterbuck treatment.
@Mcost61 @sniperstar @Komas Taberle Yeah. But I think Polak is worth more to us on the ice than he is in the box.
@LeafsGuru @sniperstar @Komas Taberle Right. I keep forgetting about that facemask. Scratch my comment.
@Komas Taberle I was about to call a Clarkson v. Neil fight tonight. Not that I want it but I can see it happening.
@Cameron19 @TheLoovTrain I think he is plenty confident right now. Did you see the way he skated to the bench after scoring with that kick. He was just laughing and shaking his head.
@Mind Bomb @Burtonboy @Great Dane That's right. That's how you sell it to the Pens.

@ninepaces @Great Dane Are you nuts?Of course it increased our chances ;). JT is coming home. Book it!
@Mind Bomb 3 goals 7 hits for the Dream tonight.
@Great Dane @sniperstar @peterbleafs @ingy56 Kadri might be able to do that one day. He's still young (24) and has time to develop that part of his game.
@peterbleafs @ingy56 @Great Dane I find Kessel always back checks when he's not gassed. JVR and Bozak on the other hand... Leave something to be desired there. Watching Bozak coast back is hard.
@peterbleafs It's hard to argue any of those goals were bad. Screened on the Clarkson goal. Kessel's shots were rockets and perfectly placed. Polak in the slot with a good shot. JVR in the slot by himself sniped it. Hard to say any of those were stoppable.
@vinoa @sniperstar @TorontoMapleLeafs @ingy56 Yeah. We rarely got killed in trades with Burkie. Everything had to do with his UFA signings not panning out.
@TorontoMapleLeafs @ingy56 Ph9? Pretty lopsided too.
@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe Yeah. It forces Randy to get creative and mix up the lines rather than keep putting out the exact same line to no avail.

@MaxwellHowe @sniperstar @Zep2 That's true. But he's been given a chance to succeed and has looked good here. I think he will want to stay.I'm not too worried about Winnik. He's a Toronto boy. I think he will want to stay here.
@Zep2 If we don't keep Santo around I think we are doing something wrong. (That is if he keeps playing like this).
@wiski @Burtonboy I didn't like that we had to give up the additional pick at the time. But now watching Polak I think it was worth it.
3 days, 6 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
@Burtonboy Didn't think he'd be this good. He may just be straight up better than Gunnarson.
@T K O @Jmessih yet* b/c he will be one day.
3 days, 7 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
@TheLoovTrain @sniperstar ;) Always.
WE WON! (Late I know, was at cousin's house watching the game but couldn't post).
@Optimustic @sniperstar ... Ugly call.
3 days, 8 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
What was that call on Franson for?
@Yaknowwhat @sniperstar It makes the fans forget about all our troubles. But I know what you mean. This team would need to take huge steps forward to be a contender.

@dlb Mad Grabbing one of McDavid or Eichel would be good for this team going forward. I just don't know how likely that is to happen.
@dlb Mad @sniperstar Well. It's arguable Kadri is better than B. Schenn at this point in their development so I would say it's a wash.
3 days, 20 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Taking on the toughs
@TheLoovTrain @vinoa In terms of the market the year Grabo was a UFA. We gave him a contract at market value. Context matters for that. Was it too much? Probably but he was a legitimate 50 point C that played a solid 2 way game until Randy got his hands on him and the best UFA C that year.
@TheLoovTrain @sniperstar @Yaknowwhat Ohhh it was Devereaux! Then what did Gerber do to us...
