@TorontoMapleLeafs I think I know what the problem is.

@itsatossup @Cameron19 @peterbleafs @HHT I think it's a culture decision. This guy is part of the group that doesn't like to practice. Maybe Shanahan thinks he can be turned around, but it seems like we're going pretty scorched Earth here.

@Leafs_17 @HHT They did. Most thought he would get destroyed playing against men. But he'd been playing guys way bigger and older than him since he was 10.

@bear19 @Cameron19 Tampa has guys coming off the books though. Next year they have approx. 6M in cap space to fill two roster spots. Looking pretty good for the foreseeable future, in my opinion.

@Dogger That's a huge blow if they do all that. I don't think they'll be that pro-active. I think they'll trade Hagelin, give St.Louis a bonus-laden deal and try to go for it again - then deal with the consequences later.

As of now, the Rangers have approx. 10M (minus whatever cap overage penalty they get for Hayes' bonus this year) to resign Stepan, Hagelin, Miller, St.Louis, and two extra forwards. The year after they have to resign Hayes and Yandle, too. Will be interesting to see what that team looks like next year. Stepan should get something in the 6M range just by himself. They can hard-ball Miller pretty good and keep him cheap, but Hagelin will probably go. The only way they'll be able to keep St.Louis is to give him a heavily bonus-laden deal and transfer the cap hit to the following season - which will only compound problems the next year.

@LoovTrain I will lose my mind with all the times we'll hear that question on here.

@DeclanK @myposts @totalrebuild I agree about rate stats generally, but there is a pretty substantial argument to be made in Kadri's favor here. For starters, almost any other team would have been using Kadri on the top PP unit for a couple years now. Secondly, the minutes Kadri has been given have been with very limited line-mates. What 2C plays a weak combo like Komarov/Panik and is expected to produce mad points?

Anytime we try and analyze an individual Leaf, we should be coming to similar conclusions: the problem here is a team wide lack of talent; not that the talent we have isn't good.

@totalrebuild Based on the other moves we've made at the prospect level since Shanahan and Hunter arrived...I doubt it.

@Burtonboy Leipsic might even be 3, but the trade kind of jarred him for a few weeks though - only just recently found his groove with the Marlies.

@Dogger They're all into it in their early 20's. I'd be surprised if Lupul is still into it. Think the back surgery really straightened him out.

@totalrebuild @Cameron19 @Knights2Leafs lol, Yes, I read it. Did you? Kadri thinks he has the potential to develop into a John Tavares type of player. You equate this to being full of himself and boasting about his greatness. Do you see the disconnect? Kadri says one thing, and you pretend he says something else because you've already formed your opinion on him, and this helps justify it. Sportsnet even presents the information to you in a way that appeals to someone with your opinion, because you're their target audience. They have no interest in showing what happened, or allowing context.

@Knights2Leafs @Mattmark @Cameron19 @totalrebuild Nothing pleases this fan base. The stuff about Kadri is particularly irking, because it's so clear the media has had this agenda with him forever, and it's just sad when you see people that actually ate it up and accept nonsense as fact.

@totalrebuild @Knights2Leafs @Cameron19 No, we're calling you ignorant because you were claiming untrue information as fact and then forming an opinion based on that incorrect information. That's the definition of ignorant.

@totalrebuild @Cameron19 lol, Bullshit. Prospects every year say what kind of player they see themselves. Kadri said nothing of the kind, you had no idea what you were talking about, and now you're going to shift the argument.

@Bring the Cup Home @Omac13 Bennett is looking like the prize of that draft right now. Someone the other day was saying that if re-done, the draft would probably be: Ekblad, Bennett, Nylander/Ehlers, Nylander/Ehlers....then Reinhart, Draisaitl and Dal Colle.

@totalrebuild @Cameron19 Ugh. It's painful to me when people talk about situations they are very ignorant of. Do you know the context of the interview? Obviously not, or you wouldn't be saying any of this nonsense. 

-

They were playing the Isles, and the talk was about how he used to play with Tavares, and actually bested him in points production in the playoffs. So with that as the background, he was saying he knows he has it in him to play on that level. He wasn't just out of the blue talking about how great he is.

@totalrebuild @Mattmark @Cameron19  Cherry was responding to what he heard Kadri said - which is obviously what you believe was said, too. That's not what actually happened though. Don't believe everything you read.

@totalrebuild @Cameron19 Find me all these instances. I think you'll be surprised to learn that all the occasions you're talking about were bullshit media spin and that in reality he said nothing of the kind.

@totalrebuild Ha. People hear what they want to hear with Kadri. Him talking about how he thinks he can play like Tavares got turned into - "He thinks he's better than Tavares!!"

@Burtonboy @Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe It's almost ideal for us if Eichel goes back to school. Pretty much wraps up a bottom 3 finish the next two years - after we clean house - and then when he is ready to join the team, bam, he's 20, and we've got a whole collection of talent joining him all at once. That's how Chicago really took off. Toews and Kane at the same as Sharp, Byfuglien, Versteeg and Bolland taking off, and Keith and Seabrook settling in on the back-end.

@Burtonboy @LoovTrain @Cameron19 It would be sweet to get Eichel by trade if something like that goes down. Couple that with the rumored Kessel+Phaneuf for Campbell/Barkov/1st. Eichel/Barkov/Kadri down the middle - vast improvement.

@ninepaces @Cameron19 @Burtonboy No, they can pick him. But he could simply hold out till he's 21 and then become a free agent like Justin Schultz did - and like a few guys do every year. Kevin Hayes just did it to the Blackhawks.

@Burtonboy That's what JVR decided to do, and it really pissed Holmgren and Snider off. It was basically the reason he was on the trade block from day one.

@totalrebuild @Cameron19 @Yaknowwhat Meh. Would you be pissed off if we'd won one more game in 2010, and the Bruins drafted Gudbranson instead of Seguin? They got very lucky, and I doubt anyone would have complained about the deal had that been the case.

@totalrebuild Happy with any of them. Let their careers decide. I am curious to see what Marner's weigh-in is at the combine though. I suspect he'll be a lot bigger than what he's currently listed at.

@totalrebuild @Yaknowwhat Burke had no penchant for American players. During his time here he brought in more Canadians than Americans, and drafted more Ontario born players than any other GM in the same time frame.
