@Burtonboy @Cameron19 @Zep2 @Yaknowwhat The prospect pool on the defense is not too shabby. Maybe not another Rielly but a lot players for the bottom 6 and maybe one of them could be top pairing player
1 day, 16 hours ago on Saturday Mashup: All Star Weekend
@Cameron19 @Zep2 @Yaknowwhat The sooner the better
Game plan most be as follows:
1) Keep Nylander, Brown, Loov etc as far away from the Leafs as possible.
2) Sell asap as much as possible except Phil, if he should be move at all it should be after the Stanley Cup but the price tack would be enormous. List to move out Lupul, Phaneuf,Reimer, Bozak, Santo, Winnik, Booth. Kadri, Gardiner and JVR for the right pieces.
3) Fall to top 5 in draft. Hope to catch a break and win the lottery
4) if not target the team that draft one and two to trade the pick which they probably won't. Then target a young center that will be replaced with McDavid and Eichel. Draisaitl would be a obvious target.

@Colleen Amazing that we are not further down with the number of bad trades and signing the last 10 years.

@ProfessorRance @Great Dane Would still have Stamkos or Tavares instead of Kadri and JVR

Augello:"The Leafs hierarchy must make better decisions than Cliff Fletcher and
Brian Burke did when they moved useful young players like Alex Steen,
Anton Stralman or Jiri Tlusty, traded first round picks for Kessel and
not take half measures that in the end resulted in drafting Luke Schenn
and Nazem Kadri instead of franchise players Steven Stamkos and John
@Jimmie Dorey @Great Dane Reality is an uninteresting special case.

@Cameron19 @Great Dane Until MacT says something different it is a possibility.
5 days, 11 hours ago on Game 47 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Cameron19 Not us. The Score quoted MacT that he could move the 1st round for a player further along.
@Sexyhairyman Give them Gardiner as well and take some salary if required
Kadri, Reimer and Phaneuf for 1st round 2015 and Draisaitl
It is time to be positive: Great 2 points to lose to a team below us in the standing. A win for the Sens in the next game will make it almost impossible for Sens,Wilds and Blue Jackets not to pass us in the standing. Then we are into top 6

@wishful thinking Very good points, and yes Leafs are at a cross road. We desperately need either McDavid or Eichel to be the new face of the franchise.
I am certain that Bettman and Co. have noticed that suddenly tickets are available in the ACC. They can't accept that the biggest cash cow in the NHL is not pulling in cash. Neither can Bell and Rogers.
A deep run in the playoffs for the Leafs would pull in more money than 1 or 2 sun-belt franchises in a season.

If there was any doubt before the Carolina game, it must have been put to rest for good. Yes, Carlyle was a problem but so the chemistry of this tea.
Shanahan most starting trading players right way. One of the first to go has to Phaneuf. I don't dislike Phaneuf as a hockey player but he is not captain material. In the current situation the Captain has to lead the pack and you hardly anything from Phaneuf.
However, he is not alone and the number of players coasting around on the ice the quite pathetic to watch. Bozak looks like he is taking a holiday cruise on skates

@Radar O'Rielly Great - another high draft pick we are the Toronto Maple Leafs Oilers
@Cameron19 What should be targeted from Dallas for Lupul
6 days, 14 hours ago on Game 46 Scoring Chances: Blues 3 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@Mind Bomb @mcloki @ShotgunCharlie They are not the main problem it is basically the rest
@Cameron19 @kel21 @Hifi75 Phaneuf to Anaheim for Lindholm and 1st round pick. plus an expiring contract if required.
1 week ago on Game 46 Scoring Chances: Blues 3 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@Cameron19 @In it to Winnik I would not wait to move Lupul and Bozak, need to go before the trade deadline.
@Cameron19 @Luke_R @In it to Winnik Fully agree
@HHT There you have: The Carlyle sacking effect.
Probably something wrong the team as well
@Burtonboy Once a Leaf fan - always a Leafs fan. I just think that this team is not better.
It was pleasure to see how the Blues controlled the puck and possession. Leafs has long way to go.
What to me stood out in that game was the fact that until the first goal (Very weak play by Bozak), Leafs had 17 shots on goal. Thereafter for 40 minutes they had 10 shots on goal and almost 30 against. No one can expect to win with that sort of play and effort.
@NotSince67 @ninepaces Top 5 in the draft is realistic. Yes Leafs should move Phaneuf, but in a hockey deal. M. Staal getting 6 million then Phaneufs contract is pretty good and very moveable. Price would be roster player and top prospect.
I think that the Leafs again have signed up for a Elementary Hockey 101 tonight.
1 week, 1 day ago on GDT: Game #46, Toronto Maple Leafs at St. Louis Blues (7 p.m., CBC)
@Burtonboy Not only the system also bad players, bad attitude
@Burtonboy @Tim44 Fulle agree that is crazy talk. However, Phaneuf Lupul Bozak Clarkson, Reimer, Franson or Gardiner, Santo ,Winnik they need to go. I would also move Kadri - good player will never work in Toronto unfortunately. JVR i would move for a big young center
1 week, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Slip Sliding Away
@Forever17 Our players have more value than that.
@MaxwellHowe If they continue to play like they have the last 10 games top 5 in the draft is absolutely possible.
What means at least Hanafin or a center
Something to think about:
Over the last 10 games the Leafs has been out-scored by 23 goals. Yes it is 23 I double checked.
Keeping that performance we should be able to get into the top 3 - in draft that is. It will be a hard fight with the Coyotes, But I do hope that we can win this one.

Leafs need to get as close as possible to McDavid and Eichel. The sooner they start moving players the better. Taking expiring contract back should be at the deadline.
@DeclanK @mr_hanie That is why it is so important that we get into the lottery. Bettman can not afford that cash cow of the league is not selling out every game.
That is Leafs are giving away tickets that is known all-round the league.
They need McDavid to revive the franchise
1 week, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #45, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. San Jose Sharks (10:30 p.m., TSN4)
@Mind Bomb @Great Dane Not complaining either well only about the Leafs, but just think about how empty our lifes would be if the Leafs were winning consistently
@Mind Bomb Is it really a good morning
@Burtonboy I think that we should trade Kessel and Nylander plus 1st round pick for Domi and Ritchie. ROFL - I am sure that will be the headline somewhere tomorrow.
1 week, 3 days ago on Game Review: Game #44, Anaheim Ducks 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 0
@Chris Jay @Great Dane @Sexyhairyman @TheGroobster Yes they can. When Cox is the voice of reason then it is really bad
@Jay31 Excellent inside from Couture.
Where was BOZAK - well maybe there is a good reason why Leafs are what they are
@Sexyhairyman @TheGroobster Have you completely lost - nobody absolutely nobody would take a 40 goals scorer; top 2 in scoring over the last 2 years behind Stamkos.
ROFL. - of course anyone who could would take Kessel.
The MSM have completely lost it.
@Yaknowwhat I would keep Kessel and go Gardiner, Bozak and Lupul and Finn
@BrandonCheema Only first on the list - what a loooooser and he is still not a good Ontarian Boy.
@Superstinks @Great Dane I can't say I hope that Shanahan will make the right moves.
need to target prospect from the last 2 drafts and picks in this draft.
@LeafLife Leafs should target prospects like Filip Forsberg. It is better to get 6-7 prospects than 1-2 first round picks and 1-2 second round picks.
@dlb, just dlb You can keep one of Kessel and Phaneuf. To bottom out you need to move at least one of them.
Moving Phaneuf will make the defense collapse
@KingTon @Great Dane To trade Kessel another team would be need to come with an enormous package.
Phaneuf, Franson, Gardiner, Polak, Reimer, Bozak, Lupul, Clarkson, Santo, Winnik everything need to go.
That should give the Leafs a number of prospect and high picks with expiring contracts.
