@.Kong. @Loric76 Has been for a few months now. I'm in full TankNation mode this year.
2 weeks ago on William Nylander is coming to Toronto
@dlb, just dlb @Burtonboy hockeystreams
@NinetyThree @Loric76 @.Kong. @MaxwellHowe I'm sure he will eventually, but hopefully it's not too late. Remember he is still just 18 years old and invincible.
Lance Hornby @sunhornby 1m
With William Nylander coming to Marlies, Connor Brown having a great rookie year and play of Antoine Bibeau, 2nd half bright for farm team.
@wendelsfist Devane - Nylander - Broll
@Forever17 Carrick is with the Leafs still isn't he? Or sent back down?
@.Kong. and as soon as the Leafs falter, which they will of course, there will be pressure to call him up.
@Cameron19 @Loric76 @MaxwellHowe I was joking about the RNH bit obviously.
@.Kong. @Loric76 @MaxwellHowe it's not just the size, its the way he plays. Fearless, which is good, but regularly goes deep into the corners or to the net and takes a huge hit to make a play. All great stuff but he's going to get his head kicked in. Broken shiny new savior...
@MaxwellHowe He's going to get killed in the AHL/NHL with the way he plays. RNH probably has 50lbs on this kid lol.
Kyle Cicerella @KyleTheReporter 1m
Stuart Percy cleared to play, will return this weekend for Marlies. Plus some other injury notes
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Game 41 Scoring Chances: Capitals 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@Yaknowwhat @B_Leaf bang on.
@Jay_Berg @Loric76 it's too bad the rumored deal swapping Lupul for Tofolli didn't happen last year. Bottom 6er but attitude in spades.
@Luke_R @Loric76 @Jay_Berg who does? the others I named or the pansy core?
@Jay_Berg I think they did well up front in this regard - Winnik, Santa, Komarov (not exactly a vet but has the right attitude at least), Booth. Problem is they didn't do anything up front with the top 6.
@wendelsfist @Yaknowwhat @Loric76 that's exactly why we're advocating blowing it up. Full rebuild, centered around the only two cornerstones we have - Reilly and Bernier.
@Mind Bomb @Yaknowwhat @Loric76 shit ya forgot Loops too.
JVR can stay if he shows that he can break a sweat in at least one game this year.
@Yaknowwhat @Loric76 I'm on the fence with Kadri, mainly with how he's improved this year.
Kessel - I'm a fan and I like him, really I do. But he's not what we need right now and we can get a shitload back for him.
@Yaknowwhat @B_Leaf both need to go. I don't care who plays against the leagues best and who scores a lot.
@Yaknowwhat Phaneuf, Kessel, Bozak, JVR, Kadri, Gardiner. Cannon fodder.
@Burtonboy "Well ya, we lost. But check out our chance and possession numbers. Isn't that what's it all about these days? No? You still want wins huh. Hmm, ok well we have to work on that I guess. In the meantime, take a look at how giant my head is."
@Yaknowwhat you know my stance on this. Launch the existing group out of a cannon.
@Mcost61 @Burtonboy best of the worst
@deedrag @Kessel81 May be able to get away with just dropping to the 6-10 range this year, several decent 1C prospects available in that range. Shouldn't be a problem getting there for this roster.
@KingTon @Loric76 @Yan28 anybody that gives him crap about it in the room should be on the top of the trade list
@Yan28 surprisingly open and honest isn't it.
@dlb, just dlb @darthNihilus trade him? nope. Put an A on his shirt.
@KingTon @Loric76 @dlb, just dlb I guess it could be that simple.
@Burtonboy @KingTon @Loric76 @dlb, just dlb if that were the whole answer, how do you account for Carlyle being let go when he was? McLellen still isn't available.
@Komas Taberle @Loric76 and freaking cold
@KingTon @Loric76 @dlb, just dlb I don't believe Nonis and Shanny would be influenced by the media/fans, but Bell/Rogers might, and in turn they can influence Shanny & Nonis in force.
@KingTon @Loric76 @dlb, just dlb misspoke - meant that I'm afraid it's the 1st
@dlb, just dlb @Loric76 I do too
@dlb, just dlb @Loric76 hope it's the 2nd or 3rd, but it's most likely the 1st
@KingTon @Loric76 Helping Damien spread the obvious word
One thing that is important: Shanahan etc made move on Carlyle with team in a playoff spot. Means new regime is saying that's not good enuf.
@Yaknowwhat @Burtonboy @Loric76 @Reimocerous wait till he hires a coach that's never coached in the AHL or NHL
@Burtonboy @Loric76 @Reimocerous No disagreement here.
@Reimocerous Burke was too loyal, Nonis is too gutless.
@Yaknowwhat @Mcost61 Put Kessel with Toews Hossa Keith and Seabrook and see what you get. 100+ points easy for 2m per year less.
Blame Kessel for Carlyle's firing? How about blaming #Leafs mgmt for not finding him a supporting cast. My column http://natpo.st/14rZXmI
@Wilbur protect your pucks. It's nasty cold out there today.
@Yaknowwhat I doubt either team is interested in moving Nylander or Domi, both teams consider those guys as their future. But the rest of what you said I'm on board with.
@Mcost61 @Cameron19 @wendelsfist @Bennett2Gareth sit on their hands until after the trade deadline and watch the 18 wheeler rear it's ugly head for the 4th year in a row.
"I'm confident in this group."
@Yaknowwhat @Bennett2Gareth I've been saying the same for a while now. Keep Bernier, Reilly, Leo, and Clarkson (unfortunately since we can't get rid of him) from the "core", keep the new guys on 1 year contracts, and get rid of the rest of the pansies.
@Bennett2Gareth @Loric76 I'm not talking about winning or losing the game, I'm talking about the effort. Many expected them to come out flying last night, and they didn't. Goaltending was sloppy and there was lots of brain-dead mistakes made.
I'm not so sure it's completely fair to expect them to come out flying last night. It was expected because it's usually what happens after a coaching change, but normally a coaching change comes after he's lost the room. They come out flying because they're happy the old coach is gone. In this case though it's being reported the other way around - Carlyle didn't lose the room, the room lost Carlyle.
Don't get me wrong, they're still shit and played like it. But I'm not sure I was expecting anything different last night.
@Yaknowwhat You too? Must have been on LeafsTV watching a game from 2009 like me
