@Bruffins Come on man...act like you've been there before. No need to over-Jordan it like this.
1 day, 8 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Cameron19 And Winnick out.
@TheCanucksnaphook Not sure about that. They bring in a goalie to keep them out of the top 5 draft spot. The Kesler deal was underwhelming. Vrbata is decent I guess.
@TheCanucksnaphook Vancouver? Whaaaaa....?
@ProfessorRance What would have preferred they do? In a playoff race would you have been happy to see them ship out 3 or 4 starters?
1 day, 12 hours ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
@Yaknowwhat He's had his troubles, but to be fair several of the injuries are repeated there.
If you don't have 2 hits tonight you're dogging it.
2 days, 8 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@TheCanucksnaphook You don't think we can make a trade with 17 forwards on the roster?
2 days, 9 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@Cameron19 I thought Winnipeg liked their D core. Is Franson even much of an upgrade for them?
2 days, 10 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@Cameron19 Cuz it was the weekend? Not sure...
@JMAC17 The post I read said he had decided on the Leafs, even though the Jets had offered slightly more money.
@Cameron19 Maybe they were waiting on the league.
@JMAC17 He got the number right too.
@TheCanucksnaphook 1 - 10...how concerned?
@CanuckUKinToronto That's a great question. I think Nonis was swayed by Burke. Burke honestly felt Orr and FML could play a regular shift I think. RC realized they couldn't, but they were still on the roster. I know RC likes it a little rough, but he also refuses to play guys he doesn't trust. We were in a Catch-22 last year.
Edit: In the end Shanahan showed him that the first thing is the player has to be able to play. AND stand up for himself. He was the prime example of that.
2 days, 11 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@loomx I'd go one step further...I don't even think these goons prevent our guys from getting mugged if they're on the ice at the time. NHL players just aren't intimidated by these guys any more, IMO.
@TheCanucksnaphook I know you like him, but I don't think Broll has a chance in Hell of making the team now. Devane either. Just too much NHL competition.
@The_Polish_Cannon Yup, and I think they've improved that hugely.
@loomx Agreed. I think this management team has shown pretty clearly they feel the same way.
You can have all the one dimensional goons dressed you can, but if they have to be on the ice we're gonna lose.
@wendelsway1 One way contracts have nothing to do with being waiver exempt. Or not.
2 days, 14 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@RandomScrub Just out of curiosity who do you think would be scooped up in an instant? Bodie? Ashton?
@Jordan29 Carlyle is an asshole and Reimer wants to do well. That sum it up?
2 days, 15 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@BlueSmoke If you have any skill whatsoever you can thrive playing with Kessel.
@Bruffins I'd be fine with him as a 1C if he had any clue how to play defensively responsible hockey.
2 days, 16 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@whalz They release the figures 48 hours before the hearing, I'm sure negotiations will start then.
6 days, 6 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
I was under the impression that Poulin assumed the Marlies GM duties when Burke was fired and Nonis took over. It had been Nonis prior to that.
1 week, 1 day ago on Kyle Dubas: 5 Takeaways on the Leafs most recent hire
@sniperstar I don't think Frattin has a chance in hell of playing on the 2nd line. Not with Clarkson, Booth, Leo and Santorelli here.
1 week, 1 day ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
@Cameron19 Yeah, I don't disagree with that re: Oduya. Chicago does have to drop some salary, but I think they really like him. Maybe Ashton and Holzer for him and move Franson in a separate deal. I do really want to keep Reimer...I think he's by far the best option for a backup for us.
@Cameron19 I'd prefer to keep Reimer and trade Franson for picks/prospects. I like our forwards right now, and would prefer to keep them as is.
@Bruffins Whoa there.
@skiingallday I wish I could give you 1000 likes for that one.
@Alec Brownscombe He's a great flier to take, just like Raymond but much more physical.
@Alec Brownscombe He tore his groin almost immediately because he was carrying too much weight. He was posting all these pics of himself hunting. It really pissed off the Canucks at the time.
@Alec Brownscombe I believe his health issues have been caused by a lack of commitment. He showed up in terrible shape in '12.
@Ze_theLeafsFan They're our minor league team I guess.
1 week, 1 day ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference
@wiski Maybe they got renewed when Nonis did.
1 week, 1 day ago on Poulin, Loiselle Fired as Assistant GMs; Leafs bring in Kyle Dubas
@Groundhogday He plays Santa at the staff Christmas parties. It's in his contract...
@Pent_House Exactly. I can see him involved in player evaluation primarily. It takes a fucking genius to do the money stuff. Just get a guy with an MBA in economics.
@wiski 3 years at what....80k? Not sure what those guys would make. Not all that expensive though.
@Komas Taberle Roger that.
@Tim Horton Their last 3 years...64 pts, 78 pts, 95 pts.
@wiski This kid is a long way from being an NHL GM.
@Cameron19 I hadn't seen anything about a one year option, I didn't realize coaches had option years. I know he had one year left, and I know he got a 2 year extension. I know it's only money, and certainly doesn't guarantee him any security though.
@Cameron19 Two years, on the one year he still has left.
@loomx Are you dissatisfied with the talent on this team, or the prospect pool?
@Komas Taberle Maybe not, but you'd prefer we sell Dion for 60c on the dollar? There was enough roster turnover that the team should play much differently next year. Providing, of course, that Carlyle changes how he does things.
@Komas Taberle Lots of players moved out or let go. Coach staying is odd, but I think he's on a short leash.
@LeafsGuru He's a HUGE upgrade on Bozak.
