@Burtonboy @Great Dane@4evrblue Sure there is a up-out clause for a NHL team

@Burtonboy @4evrblueThey are probably negociating a contract with a new coach at this moment.

@Leafs rule @Great Dane@Cameron19@wendelsfist Only the Leaf part is coming of Ek. The rest is coming from the Ottawa Citizen.  Spezza is from Toronto so it is not that unlikely.

Price for Spezza would be two established players: So we send them Bozak and Gleason. Cap hit almost a wash and we could keep 500K of Gleasons deal. 


Then trade for J.Staal. Lupul for E.Kane

Sign Hemsky for cheap, he wants to play with Spezza.


JVR - Staal - Kessel

Kane - Spezza - Hemsky

Komorov - Kadri - Clarkson 

D'Amigo - Holland - Ashton

@Cameron19 @wendelsfist@CanuckUKinToronto@Great Dane  By the way: did you guys see the Ek rumor that Spezza wants to play for the Leafs.


Trade should involve Kadri.  IMO Bozak and Gleason for Spezza would be a trade that would be acceptable.

@Cameron19 @wendelsfist@CanuckUKinToronto@Great Dane Was about to write that as well. 


Staal, Kadri, Stastny would make this a completely different hockey club.


I would drop Kadri to the third line playing with a young sniper and a veteran like Iginla.

@wendelsfist @CanuckUKinToronto@Great Dane@Cameron19 The alternative is doing it the Bruins way.


Playing two top two-way centers like Krejci and Bergeron.

@Cameron19 Wouldn't touch them way too dangerous.

@Cameron19 @Great Dane Only the first three would help the Leafs in the near future.


IMO we can keep one of Bolland, Kadri and Bozak. Having more than one of those three at center is making it certain that the Leafs will not make very far in the playoffs.


Next problem is the defense where I can't see Phaneuf fitting in long term. But what is the alternative!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Cameron19 On that list I can only see J.Staal, ROR and Couture that are really interesting.  Of the prospect type amybe Strome.

@Burtonboy Well - as I have said before we should be Thommie Bergman have more picks. But when is the last time that we had any good UFA signings!!!!!!!!!!

We are good a signing cast offs like Raymond MacArthur, but big names are a catastrophe.

@Burtonboy @Great Dane@ingy56That doesn't work with a player like Phaneuf. He need the stability of another player like Gunnar.


If they keep Phaneuf when they should be find a defensive top d-man to play with Phaneuf and move Gunnar down to play with Rielly on the second pairing. 

Then play Gardiner with Granberg

@ingy56 @Burtonboy What is really odd is that Gunnar +/- stayed almost unchanged while Phaneuf +/- basically dropped 1 point per game.

@Burtonboy @ingy56Sorry - about what ?

@Burtonboy I believe that is it a combination of several factors: Injury; over worked; total system collapse; captaincy; while Gunnar is good he is not the ideal partner for Phaneuf.

Shanahan has to think long and hard about Phaneuf and what to do with him.

@CanuckUKinToronto Leafs need to push players down the depth chart.


Get a top 2 defenseman; push Gunnar down; push Granberg/Percy/holzer/?? up from the Marlies; Push Franson and Gleason out of the roster.


Same at center: Kadri, Bozak and Bolland are not playing where they should. Get Stastny and/or J Staal.

Push Kadri/Bozak down the depth chart.


Sign Iginla in the summer to learn the team some work ethic.

@Greg Fenton @loomx@CanuckUKinToronto Leafs biggest problem is not the players that they have. It where the players they have play.


Push Phaneuf down the depth chart -> push Gunnar down he depth chart -> move gleason and Franson of the roster.


Move Bozak and Kadri down the depth chart.


Then a lot of problems are solved.

@Keeon IMO Shanahan should target Iginla in the off-season and then we need to send Phaneuf to another team. 


He is a good defense man but not captain material.  Got even worse from the announcement from Burke and Wilson. That was not a smart move.

@ingy56 @ShiftyD@Belfour20/JB-45 Well - CanuckUK said - couldn't be worse than what we have season this season from the Leafs.

But when a player perform you need to give them a chance otherwise it will demotivate the entire organization.

He might not we good enough for NHL, but it sends a signal to every young player, that if you perform you will get a chance

If have the AHL defense man of the year and we didn't even give him one game with the big club.


Now how is that for asset management.


Talking about accountability: Be the best player in the farm league and not even getting a try out. 


My conclusion:   Shanahan has a lot of work to do to change this kind of "culture"

To day my guess is that Phaneuf is going to the Oilers. Reimer +Franson to the Jets.


Unless that Weber suddenly becomes available.
