@leafersutherland He is a free agent  Doubt he will resign with a team that didnt give him 1 min of NHL ice time when he ended up winning defenseman of the year in the AHL

@Burtonboy @dlb meh@CanuckUKinToronto When a guy has a 2 yr+ contract with a NMC the only way to get through to him if positive motivation is not working is to take away ice time

@Mitch_S2 @Burtonboy He had plenty of chances to change with the team-  Roster selection and sytems were not working defensively and he did nothing about it... Adapting is on the fly, during games not season by season

@Burtonboy @Mitch_S2 When did he bench a vet for a giveaway?  You heard from Gilmour how Burns would bench him or any other Leaf for the remainder of a period if they made a defensive giveaway.. Carlyle allows 2-4 on a single shift and puts them right back out as nothing happened..

@Mitch_S2 @Burtonboy Firing the coach is not letting the players off the hook, it is also ensuring that they are not letting the coaching staff off of the hook as they sucked too.

Also deal with the roster so they know it was their fault too.  Dont sign current Leaf UFAs and deal Reimer, Franson, and upgrade one more D- Gunnar and a core roster forward.. That will tell them.. Also, tell the forwards if they dont backcheck and listen to new coach they will not be here by trade deadline

If you had to predict who on the Leafs will not be on the team next year: What chance they are on the roster-


Under 25% chance:

Raymond, Kulemin, Mcclement, Orr, FML, Bolland, Franson, Reimer

Under 50% chance:

Bodie, Ranger,  (the remaining based on skill not trading- Percy, Granberg, Leivo)

Under 75% chance

Lupul, Ashton, D''Amigo, Gunnarson, Gleason, Holland

Under 90%:

Bozak, Phaneuf, Gardiner,

Guys who 100% will be on roster- Kessel, JVR, Clarkson (Kesse- as he met with Shanny - Timmy wont want him traded, JVR as up and coming and good contract, Clarkson due to contract), Rielly and Bernier

@Cameron19 @GreekGod@leafersutherland There are some very good assets here and prospects.  We need to clean out some = 5-8 players... not tear all down..

@Black_Hawk He is not going to be the coach next year.. If he was we (all Leaf fans) could feel it.. as it would be a major f**k in the *** to each and every one of us.  You dont bring in a new president and say no direction and timmy being upset and then keep GM and coach in place. Based on how they collapsed and the shots/system etc not going to happen

@Jordan29 They wont rush anything ... it is a bottom up, top down then bottom up strategy.

Bottom up- key components defined.. (probably done) (Not these guys)...  Top down-  Mgmt team and Coaches- yet to be done.. then bottom up - periphery guys who to keep or not.. they are last step

@mike_84 @CanuckUKinToronto@Burtonboy I have said before, why buy him out? Just trade and retain salary.  His Salary is $4.5m and $3.5m.  His buyout would be over 4 yrs - $833k, $1.8, $1.3 and $1.3.  

Trade and retain $1.5m  So his salary is $3.0m and $2.0 to other teams

@mike_84 @Burtonboy I guess it depends on how much change has already happened on the blue line.  I am sure they will have 5 players competing for the last 2 spots ( incl Percy and Granberg in that group)

@Zep2 @CanuckUKinToronto think of it like a personal trainer in the gym.. you get better focused results opposed to guys working out on their own.. Same for being coached to Breathe and skate.. Need detailed training and techniques..

@Zep2 @CanuckUKinToronto I also think we need to DEVELOP our picks and young talent better.  Look at treatment of DAmigo, Holland and Ashton this year as examples.. As there is no cap on coaching and development, we should have the best spending concentrated efforts on our top 20 prospects to groom a greater possibility of them maximising their potential

@ingy56 @Uncle Otis yes.  However, NJD have very limited skill outside of to 40 year olds in Jagr and Elias.  Henrique is ok but Zajac is Bozak extra light as their 1C.   Limited talent outside of that and Schneider in net.. dont get me wrong.. I prefer others to Muller

@dlb meh @CanuckUKinToronto Cool story about what Brett Hull said about Yzerman.   Said he joined Wings and they had like 10 future hall of famers in the the dressing room.. They fell behind 2-0 in playoffs and when they went back to dressing room.. no one took their equp off.. Hull expected a big rah rah speech by Yzerman.. He came in and just said-  "look we are better than they are.. we are going to go to their building win these two back and then take the series"... that was it..


and they did. swept it from there.
