@CherryPicking @Joe_17 it would, i agree. But for 'core' players making 5+ mill it still wouldnt be as straight forward as that.
I mean im with ya, i want the same thing - i just dont see it as a fail that it hasnt happened yet since it's pretty complex trying to move those types of pieces
1 hour, 21 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
@CherryPicking Everyone talks about selling and trading everything - which is fine, i'm down for most of the jettison theories - but this idea that we failed because it didnt happen doesnt make sense to me. you cant just 'get rid' of people. Someone has to want to take them. And something is going to come back - generally of a similar value (but not always)
1 hour, 30 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
@Savo43 @Burtonboy @Joe_17 @Mind Bomb I hope connor and nylander work out - but to be honest i think im a little less horny than everyone else when it comes to our stable. Im not trying to be pessimistic, but i wouldnt say we have a tonne of 'cant miss' prospects with majority projecting as lower pairing D or bottom 6 forwards
3 hours, 12 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
@Burtonboy @Joe_17 @Mind Bomb I guess yea, i havent been following the team since the deadline. I actually havent watched a single game since the deadline. Been scoreboard watching before bed most nights though just to keep current. i just want it to be officially put to bed so theres no more ridiculous interviews or crazy incidents to get blown up.
I want leaf nation to be able to sit back, have a deep breath, and say 'there, its done'
3 hours, 40 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
@Burtonboy @Joe_17 @Mind Bomb Watch, we'll go off the board and grab Provorov or Werenski and folks here will break the internet!
3 hours, 44 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
@Burtonboy @Joe_17 @Mind Bomb My personal order is generally C > D > W - but if they're special, they're special and it looks like Strome/Hanifin/Marner all have that potential.
I just want this ugly season to be over!
3 hours, 45 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
@Mind Bomb @Burtonboy im just happy that we're in a position to get a good player regardless.
3 hours, 47 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Connor Brown has 4pt game, Nylander adds goal+assist in Marlies win over Rochester
holy shit, bozak was 16-1 on the dot! like him or not, that doesnt suck too much
1 day, 6 hours ago on Game 76 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Senators 3 (OT)
@BoneChompski @mcloki @MaxwellHowe Yea. i think the team needs to suspend Kessel and Booth to send a message. Also Kadri was there so yea, sit him too
2 days, 23 hours ago on Game 75 Scoring Chances: Panthers 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Jmessih @Burtonboy @HHT The top 30 scorers from 2003 and 2005 (not top drafted, just top scorers after being drafted)
2003 = 12,361 total points
2005 = 7478 total point
3 days ago on Game 75 Scoring Chances: Panthers 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Yaknowwhat i wouldnt be surprised to see Nonis stay until Dubas can take it over
3 days, 21 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bailey set to debut, Marlies within a point of playoffs, lottery date set
@Yaknowwhat @MaxwellHowe @FRyan If you check youtube and search for Kadri on april 13 2013 - THATS what i used to root for, but it seems to have disappeared this year. i could watch them lose every game if the team played like he played that game. thats what i could get behind. Not the garbage thats on the ice now. I literally havent watched a game since the deadline. Could not care less. And that makes me sad!
6 days, 3 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
i get this bad feeling that we end up taking Provorov at 4 or 5. Just seems thats the way the draft has gone for us in recent years. Not that he's bad at all, but we rarely seem to take who folks on this board think are the obvious choices. Everyone thought it'd be Forsberg or Grigorenko instead of Reilly, Ritchie over Nylander etc...im not saying those picks didnt work out for us, just that we are notoriously awful at predicting what leaf mgmt are thinking!
6 days, 22 hours ago on Dylan Strome wins the OHL scoring title
@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe i got a foot of snow on top of the 3 existing feet, than 1.5 hours of freezing rain. What a hot mess out there. Hard shoveling!
2 weeks ago on Game 70 Scoring Chances: Canucks 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Mind Bomb @Jay_Berg @colino17 i dont think i want to know. Kadri's been my favorite player since we drafted him and i would like to keep it that way! Its like when i watched the documentary on the eagles and saw how nasty the guys were behind the scene. Please dont shatter my hockey illusions too!
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Greatest Tank Battles
@FRyan @Cameron19 i think they'd still take eichel and look deal deal on of the guys you mentioned for D help
@Burtonboy @FRyan If our guaranteed options are Han, Strome or Marner - no tears will i shed. Though i;ll be more giddy if its a forward
@Mind Bomb @Burtonboy @Joe_17 yea for sure. i think thats where this 'rebuild' gets hairy. Everyone wants to trade everyone away and replace them with kids, but if you bring these kids up now they're effed. No real vets to guide them and a pool full of media sharks looking for blood.
Glad its not problem to solve :)
@Burtonboy @Mind Bomb @Joe_17 Brown and Nylander 'pay the price' type of guys? Will they dig corners or hang in the crease if need be? or are they more wall guys?
Anybody follow the marlies relatively closely? I havent seen any games or highlights in forever. Any standouts and disappointment? How has Nylander looked?
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17
No..really, that makes me feel...good.
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17 Up to 6 degrees here today. its a christmas miracle. Still 3 feet of snow though and calling for 25 more cm's over the weekend. I dont mind snow, but its too deep to do any enjoyable in.
@Mind Bomb mornin fella
@Ice Cream Man I liked the article for everything except when he tells the players to stop reading about themselves. I honestly dont think thats whats going on here with distractions. The guys with the mic's tell them the nasty shit they're about to write and then also write about how they react to hearing that nasty shit. theres no escaping in toronto no matter how hard you try
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Game 65 Scoring Chances: Lightning 4 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@Burtonboy @traNsplantEdneWfie Yea, i wouldnt let a kid within a 100 miles of this shitshow at this point. Draft a good player, then keep him away from us for a year or 2
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Game 65 Scoring Chances: Lightning 4 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@dlbu dlbu E @Joe_17 i'll adopt anything if it means returning the boys to glory!
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Maple Leaf Hangout Season 2 Episode 3
I wonder if theres any way to gate the amount of media allowed in the room at any given time. i know they cant prevent it but itd be nice if there was some loophole or missing 'rule' that would allow the team to manage the amount of media permitted behind the scenes
@Markovv55 Marek is an easy choice because he doesnt say enough to actually annoy you!
Im surprised that Cox doesnt annoy me more - but i think in his early days he's been keeping pretty objective for the most part which has made him palatable. Mostly, i look forward to hearing Lebrun talk, am interested in hearing Friedman and Mckenzie talk, and dont give much of a shit about anyone else other than making sure i never have to hear kypreos or Mclean talk
@Markovv55 we dont say their names...
@Jon5200 Yea...what Jon said.
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17 no need of that
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17 I know, that sounds awesome. Just gotta wait for nature to deal with the 3-4 feet of snow around my property first. Gonna be a long time coming i think
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17 YEa we had a long spell where we laid off shows so we're behind on GOT, Walking Dead, SOA...all those shows. So we're in full-on catch up mode now!
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17 Ha, didnt even realize we played tonight! Im so out of it. Probably end up being a walking dead night. We're still a season and a half behind
@Mind Bomb Hey bud
@Mitch_S2 Cherry will think we got Grabovski back. pretty sure he called him Garbowski
@Dogger Ive heard good things about Barzal but havent seen a board yet (i dont think) that had him that high
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Leafs Notebook – March 4
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Joe_17 maybe the bottom 10 should have a shootout tournament. The winner picks 1st, runner up 2nd...and so forth. They do love them some shootouts in the nhl!
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Leafs Notebook – March 4
@TorontoMapleLeafs @dlbu dlbu E i wonder what affect mirroring the order would have - like they do in Lockout years. so if you draft 1st, your next pick is at 60. 1st place team picks 30 and 31
@TuckerForPunishment @colino17 They're both out in California i think doing for sports for a different station. Jay wrote a book though, it was pretty funny
@colino17 @TuckerForPunishment I dont hate him all the time, and i dont really care who makes what in terms of money, for me its just always been the draft where i have a big problem with him
@MaxwellHowe imagine the media if we lost!
@TuckerForPunishment He pisses me off annually at the draft as well when he does the interview with the Leaf pick and GM. First thing he says...every year...is about how the leafs were trying to trade up for a different pick and how it didnt work out. Congrats 18 year old kid whose dream just came true - let me start your career off by asking your boss about how he wanted someone other than you.
He'll do it again this year, guaranteed
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17 Yea me too. Ive never been so disconnected or disinterested in hockey as i am this year. i dont know if its the team and the players so much as all the negative hoopla that surrounds the team. The media nonsense is crazy. Its feels so juvenile and tabloidy this year, moreso than others. There were jokes going around this week about TSN being like TMZ and i thought that was pretty accurate, but not just for TSN, all of the media outlets. Dion probably has people hiding in his bushes to see if separates his recycling properly so that they can report him and then write a story about it.
@Yaknowwhat Boyd Devereaux is retired right?
@Mind Bomb @Joe_17 Mornin bud, how goes
@Burtonboy @Joe_17 Gotcha, thanks. Hopefully it pops up somewhere. I really like listening to Dubas. Smart, articulate guy - so hearing him give it to TSN could only be the best soundbite of the week i'd think
