The conversation was about tanking. Mtl didn't tank to get Lafleur
Islanders didn't tank to get Potvin, they were an expansion team. They were what they were
Buffalo got Perreault , all time great, no cup
Vancouver got Dale Tallon, enough said
After Yzerman Detroit took Sean Burr, before that Dale McCourt ,not exactly HOF,ers
8 hours, 20 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
@Greg Fenton @Zep2 So Fuhr and Coffey count , but Kessel and Rielly (5) , JVR (2) and Nylander (8) dont count
9 hours, 3 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
@Greg Fenton @Zep2 Gretzky was never drafted
9 hours, 11 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
@Greg Fenton @Zep2, Thats your opinion
9 hours, 12 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
@Greg Fenton @Zep2 The draft started in 67, or 68.
Jerseys 3 Cups, no,
Oilers 5 Cups , no
Habs, 86, 93 , no
Wings 3 Cups no
Just of the top of my head

@Alec Brownscombe Carlyle is on the shortest leash .
9 hours, 19 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
@Mcost61 @Zep2 Sather caught lightning in a bottle getting Messier, Kurri, Anderson.
Fuhr and Coffey were highly regarded at their draft but I don't recall any hype surrounding the others
As much good luck as good management, muCH like the Wings
9 hours, 20 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Since 1967 Bobby Orr, Mario Lemieux and Sid Crosby, have combined for 5 SC , the idea of tanking to win the Cup is overrated, some skinny undrafted kid named Gretzky won 4 by himself
9 hours, 28 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Stroman pitches 1 hit ball through 7 innings.
Jays aren't dead YET
10 hours, 27 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
@Dangle_My_Berries @Zep2 Yeah that would be a big help. Having forwards that can play in the other teams zone would help too
10 hours, 40 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
God, another 700+ days of Stamkos speculation. The Leafs have no control over this process. Getting Stamkos hopefully is plan Z, Tavares plan Y.
The team has gotten incrementally better since Draft day. Nothing spectacular, but the bottom 6 and D look improved.
10 hours, 43 minutes ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Off course you are right. But right from the get go, the MSM is comparing him to BB. you can see Shanny cringing during the interview.
I think this guy is smart as hell, but talk about high expectatios
1 day, 10 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Dubas Mania
The same people who are comparing him to Beane and Epstein will
Throw him under the bus like JFJ
There is no middle ground for many
Since the latest collapse I've become a Kansan when it comes to the Leafs
It's Show me time
The skeptic in me looks at Dubas resume, analytic hype aside , and can't help but be impressed
But Dubas will quickly morph into Dumbass if the Leafs fail to make the playoffs
1 day, 10 hours ago on MLHS in conversation with Dave Morrison – Part 1
@lukethenuke Broll has good wheels and decent hands .
2 days, 9 hours ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot @Zep2 Beane is one of the great builders in sports . Comparing this kid to him is a joke
You could see Shanahan gritting his teeth
So the MSM is comparing this guy to Billy Beane already Fucking ridiculous
2 days, 10 hours ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
@Cloud09 @Zep2 Ashton must be going WTF and Bodie speed dialling Liewecke
Ill ask again
Is this decision based on advanced stats or is Nonis tossing Phils cousin a bone
Is signing Booth advanced stats or tossing a bone to Phils cousin
2 days, 10 hours ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference
Out with the old , in with the new.
There is no doubt who is steering the ship now.
But some of the Moneyball comparisons are laughable. Baseball is tailor made for advanced stats , but the more spontaneous and reactive the sport, the less effect it will have
2 days, 11 hours ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference
Hiring Shanahan in the midst of a colossal collPse was the equivalent of fiddling while the team burned
However, there's no doubt who is in charge. Nothing much to complain about so fae
2 days, 15 hours ago on The pros and cons of trading Cody Franson
Ovies best days are in the rear view mirror. His career will be defined by his great ability to score goals and his terrible ability to play a team game.
3 days, 7 hours ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
So Ovies engagement to Tennis player is over.
He now has better chance of hoisting the Claret Jug than the Stanley Cup
Nonis has had a decent summer.
Franson is a valuable asset . Worse case scenario is that the LEafs are out of it at the deadline and he gets traded for futures
3 days, 11 hours ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
Rangers lose Poulliot, Boyle, Stralman, buy out Richards
Add Boyle and Mathew Lombardi
They gave taken a step or 2 backwards
1 week, 1 day ago on Matt Frattin on TSN 1050
Nice to see keep his career on track

Great stuff as usual AP
Point # 10 can be reworded as :Who are these guys, playoff cinches or doormats
1 week, 3 days ago on Monday Mashup: The Dog Days are Here
Bring it on
The Fucking HAbs made it to the semis for one reason .EFFORT. Not size, skill , or toughness, just effort
Down the stretch they played every shift like it Was their last. By that time the Leafs lack of depth or Carlyles lack of faith had worn out our core players
We can second guess the GUnner trade all we want, but that trade is just one in a series of moves to recast the team
On Leafs Lunch or Out to Lunch
Everybody and their dog wanted Gunner off the top pair and a D that was harder to play against . What happened, everyone get amnesia all off a sudden?
1 week, 4 days ago on Steve Spott, Peter Horachek named Maple Leafs’ Assistant coaches

2 weeks, 3 days ago on Sunday Mashup: Leafs News and Notes
Pink Floyd issuing a new album in October based on Unpublished Rick Wright material
During the tailspin , Paul Ranger played pretty good hockey. I thought he would be resigned .
scrolling through I read the post about the e-card for Brian Murray. Good idea.
Murray is a good hockey man . I wish him all the best
They ran Lou out or town , I can see it happening to Miller
Miller had a fighting chance with the Blues but didn't deliver. It's about the money now.
I think they are getting older ! Slower and Miller might win them enough games to make the playoffs , but a Culp run is out of the question
The Miller signing in Vancouver smells like desperation. A team in decline pays big bucks for a player in a steeper decline . It's got JFJ and Peddie written all over it
Have a good trip .
BTW, I'd trade LUps and DIon but not Kessel. hE has 8 more good to great years in him, can't say the same about Lups, age injury, or DION, age and grind of being under a microscope
Frattin has a proble with the 6" between his ears. If he can figure that out he will score 20
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Sunday Mashup: Leafs News and Notes
I posted a comment asking why the kid with the most skill (Nylander) who is roughly the same size as the SAMs in considered to be the biggest risk
Personally I think Reinhard could end up being the least effective.
Nylander is the victim of the Don Cherry syndrome.
Not Canadian enough
Not from Ontario
Not from Mimico or Kingston
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Maple Leafs Off Season: Assessing “Plan B”
Sam Reinhard -6'1" 185 lbs , high hockey IQ, average speed
Sam Bennet-6'0" 178lbs, supposed Doug Gilmour clone .Because he wears 93?
William Nylander 5' 11" 179 lbs considered to have most talent in the draft
Which one is cast as the riskier, smallest , weakest , and why?
