@Mind Bomb @CanuckUKinToronto @Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe I can imagine Shanny doing it. "Is ______ the guy you want? Well f*ck you we're taking them"

@CanuckUKinToronto @Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe I preferred Virtanen for a couple of weeks but after I began to really dig I think Ehlers should be the guy we go with if they are both available at the 8 spot.

@Czarofleafnation If he's learned to bring his physical game consistently and go to the net he should be on our 3rd line at least.

@Burtonboy Keep calm and Corsi's still wrong.
@Great Dane The man literally has zero hockey IQ in his own end. He just chases the play and is always out of position.
@Jmessih @DWCMLHS He's hysterical though. Dying reading this stuff.

@rustynail @MaxwellHowe Me as well. Bernier has been out with two injuries this year but it seems like neither is related. Let's just hope it was a freak accident and he'll be back to play at the same level next year.
@MaxwellHowe Honestly, we should be keeping him in my opinion. Bernier has played well this season but it's one season. We need to keep that in mind. Until we see him do it again we need a capable back up to push him and maybe even take the no.1 spot. If Reimer wants to go that's a different story but at this point we should hang onto both.
@Jmessih Virtanen's game is tantalizing and is certainly the guy I want because it's such a rugged power forward game but Ehlers has quite a bit of skill. I was in the Virtanen camp for the last week but after doing some more research I like Ehlers now.

@Jmessih 1st one out beefs up the Marlies for their play off rum ;).
@Mitch_S2 @Loric76 @Keeon @mr_hanie LOL. I fell to the floor when I read Norris, I died when I read Hal Gill.
@Keeon The Baby Buds just keep looking better and better. Can't wait to try and snag play off tickets.
@FrankFerrant Let's trade our best DMan and then draft a forward to replace him.
@.JVR. @Bruffins Dressing 11 forwards wasn't the problem. It was playing 1 or 2 of those 11 forwards for less than 10 minutes consistently.

@ingy56 @lukethenuke I can see Rielly being all over it. Idk about Bozie though.

@dlb meh That's good to know. I've only really watched Bennett and Ekblad.

@dlb meh Ritchie is a name that intrigues me. I'm still in the Virtanen camp but any of those guys would please me with the 8th pick.

@MaxwellHowe @wendelsfist That's a big problem with the stat. People use it to measure individual success in terms of possession but a lot of it depends on your teammates. So as a stat for a teams possession overall it carries some merit but in terms of individual corsi ratings it's garbage, in my opinion, for the most part
@4evrblue @maple1967leafs That's true. If that happened and we made this type of move I'd probably crawl in a corner and stay there for a good month.
@4evrblue @maple1967leafs Yes they could and the guy at 8th could be top 6 but Bennet, Ekblad and Reinhart all have the potential to be top tier players.
@maple1967leafs @sniperstar @4evrblue I knew I could count on you.
@4evrblue @maple1967leafs If it's a Percy of Finn and our 1st for Sam Bennet by all means make the move. We'd be stupid not too. Hell, even for Ekblad or Reinhart.
@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy Too be fair Skinner was a small C who came straight into the NHL so it might not be a bad idea.You make it sound like trading into the top 3 is easy. Remember it took a 2nd and 3rd to move from 7th overall to 5th a few years back. The jump from 8 or 9 would be quite a bit to pay.

@wendelsway1 @Chris Jay @Lescott I guess that's true. I want him to stay simply b/c we don't know if Bernier keeps up this play down the road. He could still steal back the job from Bernier for all we know.
@MaxwellHowe @Mind Bomb @Burtonboy No, it's just a matter of trying to get someone who is closer to the show when we go this early in the draft. Get better sooner b/c Kessel and Ph9 aren't getting any younger.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy I look back at that draft and expected 6/10 to play or at least get close. So it doesn't surprise me, it was a strong draft. I'm just saying that isn't the norm. Besides Rielly is in for us now and we had this happen to us before. His name was Luke Schenn...
@ProfessorRance @Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 You're right. We would get less for Bozak but Kadri is the better player and ultimately should be the guy we keep. Younger and arguably better already.
@Chris Jay @Lescott Why are we even talking about moving Reimer at this point. Bernier has played 1 season. For all we know he can crash and burn next year. Reimer shouldn't be moved as of yet.
@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy Trouba was drafted in the 12 draft. Didn't come straight into the league.Skinner was the exception not the rule.Nushuckin should have been a top 5 pick at least in his draft and for some reason fell to 10. I'm not saying the Leafs can't get this to happen but outside of the top 3 it's far less likely to happen.

@lukethenuke @rustynail I personally think it's Ekblad although I haven't seen any of them play too much.

@Komas Taberle Ph9 stays. McClement depends on his asking price but I'm ready to move Lupul unless he begins to simplify his game. These dippsy doodles and curl and drags are pissing me off. Put the puck on net, don't need that extra move.
@Jay_Berg Every other draft has him at at least 10.

@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy Foligno is young enough he can be part of that rebuild for them. In 5 years he'll be nearing his prime.
@The_Polish_Cannon @loomx Virtanen or bust!

Seeing Jerrod Smithson in the article's image makes me miss David Steckel... At least he could skate faster than a tortoise could walk.
@[BBirde] Anaheim's my pick. Or the Avs. I'd like to see Selanne or Giggy hoist it one last time.
@The_Polish_Cannon @loomx @rustynail I was the same. All I wanted was for him to be given a 1 day contract to play his last game as a Leaf.
@rustynail @wiski I wish we had Luo simply for these things. The guy is a riot.

@Jmessih We should give Sundin a call.
4 days ago on And that’s a wrap
@The_Polish_Cannon @Chris Jay The biggest difference b/w Kostka and Brennen I'd say is Kostka can at least handle himself in his own zone. Brennen literally looks like a chicken running around with his head cut off. Don't get me wrong though. He does try to play defence. He's just no good at it.
@Keeon Doesn't matter. Barb fixes all skating issues apparently.
4 days, 1 hour ago on And that’s a wrap
@Keeon THAT'S MY BOY! He's my sleeper pick for making the Leafs next year.
@WendelGilmour It is something to keep in mind. But if he brings his physical game on a consistent basis he should slot in nicely on our 3rd line. Otherwise send him back to the KHL.
