@Burtonboy @Mind Bomb I like Ashton, he battles, but that kid has no confidence with the puck at the NHL level.

@LeafsGuru Agreed, Winnick and maybe Frattin of the bodies brought in. Booth, Konti and Santa haven't done anything to earn a spot, imo.

Hat tip to Bibeau, but I remain interested in the Gibson kid, who I think will emerge among the Marlies group this season.

It seems that RC's easing into the idea of overhauling his baby, his fate is basically going to come down to player deployment, unless the tweaked system hasn't a heartbeat. 


I like RC the human, loved RC the player, but I'm still not convinced with RC the bench boss–hope he adapts and proves me wrong

@barjv01 @Mattmark I also like the idea of him and Lupul making up 2/3 of a scoring line, maybe with Clarkson, matched against 3rd pairing D's. There's opportunity for balance with this group, depending on injuries.

@Cameron19 @Jmessih A Booth would likely lessen the line's offensive output but would make that unit much more responsible. When I think about Lupul there, I think too bad for that D pairing. With this depth, Lupul can be a guy you get out against weaker comp and he should put up some numbers.

@Yaknowwhat Do you guys actually believe that if Phil worked out an extra day a week he would be better? That's, well, laughable.

@Leafs2 Isles1 Good post but as I see it, Phil is the good guy everyone wants to hang with and likely goes a long way toward camaraderie. He's a genuine dude and performs his role (lighting up oppositions) admirably. I think that's all anyone should expect, given Phil's character.

At the end of the day, this was a huge mis-calculation by Spott. And the fact that he ought to have known better, doesn't impress me at all, NHL greenhorn or not.

@MaxwellHowe I believe we're being a little naive if we don't think superstars get preferential treatment and don't have input in things like the power play.

@djamon @Leafbites I agree that this is an over-reaction, but I've never considered Phil too much amongst the leadership ranks on the team anyway, despite his gargantuan on-ice role. I believe I interpreted the 'character' quotes to be of off-ice concern. If he meant on-ice (or even hockey) then yea, Phil may of had a bull's eye on his back.

@djamon @Yaknowwhat Okay, suppose it is Phil, who is Wik comparing him to, say a Dustin Brown–who has character in spades, but wouldn't score on a barn. 


If this is the case, then his point must be that you  need a mix. Well sure, of course you need a mix. Goal scorers of Phil's ilk aren't as plentiful, though, as the dusty Browns.

Let's be honest, most every dressing room has a couple 'bad characters', but Philly cheese? He my not scream leadership, but how on earth do you create a narrative that paints our bashful, pudgy hockey phenom as a bad apple. Hilarious again, TO media. 


Now, let's bring on the season and see what this band of misfits are all about!


Oh and for Phook's sakes, free the Phook! He's a Phooking beaut!

It's so annoying–like 'possession' is some new phenomena in hockey. It was a buzzword before there were dressing rooms.

Leafs went and got enough right D so they could create a market for Cody, by making it seem like they are only offloading him because they now suddenly have a surplus of righties....he may be drawing some interest, but not from anyone wanting to part with any significant asset for his services, and obviously waiting out this arb hearing. He's gonzo before the season starts for a bag of pucks and a half dozen face stitches.
