Here's hoping Holland gets a look between Kessel and JVR.
15 minutes ago on Tuesday Mashup: September!
@Xxxxxnew A team filled with goons and truculence coached by a guy who emphasis' speed, possession and skill.
Fire him to find a guy who has a preference to coach goons and truculent players.
Find speed and skill to replace talentless truculence.
1 week, 5 days ago on Maple Leafs hire Brandon Pridham as new assistant GM
@Mind Bomb @Mcost61 Cocaine is gods way of letting you know you make too much - Robin Williams
Nylander ranked 4th best prospect in world by ESPN's Corey Pronman.
Only behind Drouin, Ekblad and Bennett.
1 week, 6 days ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
Off topic but I figured I would post it,
This fellow isn't against nuclear power but he does raise some good points.
And ultimately being and educated previously licensed operator goes along way instead of some ipod using green peace hippie.
@Pent_House @Mitch_S2 yeah and with a name like that you know he's good with the ladies.
They have the leafs drafting 12th which is a bummer, but they have us taking Mitch Marner which would be awesome.
@Greg Fenton @Cameron19 Or other players improved?
At the end of the day for talking about taking a gamble on say 10 of the best 17 year olds in the world, to say the talent gap is large would be very misleading.
Haven't really looked into the Johansen stuff, but the kid seems to be running his mouth quite a bit.
That being said this kid is Ryan Getzlaf incarnate, big body, smooth skater tough as nails.
Is he no longer open to an offer sheet?
Regarding the trade route I don't think you get him without Kadri or Rielly in the deal.
Kadri I would totally consider, Nylander could potentially replace him.
@TheCanucksnaphook What's awesome about the Booth signing is that he's not Raymond!
2 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: Second Assistant GM Hire to Come Next Week
@4evrblue @Mitch_S2 @TheCanucksnaphook why not have an 18 year old do it?
@TheCanucksnaphook @Mitch_S2 He didnt play as an 18 year old?
@TheCanucksnaphook Leafs are due for an 18 year old to come tear it up.
@Xxxxxnew Looks like the annual at wooden sticks
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Wake me up when it’s hockey season
@Burtonboy @Mitch_S2 Schultz-esque
Does Kevin Hayes become a UFA if not signed? this the three years after being drafted rule or whatever
@Burtonboy Any info on who's bein interviewdd
Anyone here an ESPN insider, curious to see what leafs made the list and where they were!
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Wake me up when it’s hockey season
@Mcost61 @Walter_White @Mitch_S2 @Cameron19 Kessel was at least drafted as a centerman, they maybe could have hoped he would be able to play there.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Thursday Mashup: It’s Going to be a Long Month
@Burtonboy @Bruffins Gauthier could really be the most impactful player the leafs have drafted in the last 10 years save Morgan Rielly.
Given our need for a horse of a centerman in the top 9.
@Cameron19 @Walter_White Totally jealous of the flames (didn't think I'd ever say that)
I wonder what it would take to get one of Monahan or Bennett
Also curious if a returning player has ever been cut?
@TheCanucksnaphook @Mitch_S2 Never said they were good, just stating a fact.
1 month ago on Jake Gardiner talks contract with Greg Brady
@TheCanucksnaphook komarov played for the marlies, Kontiola spent quite a while in the minors and i dont think anyone will argue booth didnt play well early on in his career to avoid the minors..
Gotta be a trade on the way, I don't see how any of the kids are getting a chance here.
1 month ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@Anthony Petrielli @StanleyB4idieplease Hanzal would be ideal
1 month, 1 week ago on In conversation with Dave Morrison – Part 3
@Mcost61 3.5 for a guy who had 22 points and gets rocked by Kadri.... solid signing.....
1 month, 1 week ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
@Cameron19 I just have a hard time giving up assets for anyone who isn't a center. Make that same trade plus some for Couturier.
Kane is a great talent but I don't see how he really makes us better as a whole.
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Mitch_S2 I think your taking alot away from one picture.
I don't in anyway see how this equates to an army battle with essentially wasteful killing.
You do realize it is traditional for natives to have large parties and celebrations after a big kill? They celebrate the life the kill brings.
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Mitch_S2 @Greg Fenton
What lack of alternative?
You mean Booth should get his meat from a slaughter house like everyone else? Much more humane?
And your missing my point when i referred to the native Canadian. A picture itself has nothing to do with. They were animal furs and even carcasses with pride in their everyday life.
Booth is in no way disrespecting the animal, if anything he is admiring it.
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Mitch_S2 @Greg Fenton I've never seen an image like that. And a picture like that has less to do with the act and more to do with the ignorant person.
But I don't see how Booth's picture is any different than a Native Canadian wearing a traditional head dress.
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Greg Fenton A respectful outdoors man does alot more good for the environment than any other human on the plant. That's a fact of life.
Animals need to die just as animals need to be born, humans are natural predators as we are atop the food chain.
You may argue that it's due to intelligence and he should hunt an animal with his bare hands but at the end of the day the only reason we are the Alpha is because of our brains.
Don't hate on him because he likes to get back to his roots. The computer you type at is using electricity likely produced by coal plants which does more harm to the planet than one Bow.
Do you think Ryan O'Reilly was aware of the fact that he would go onto waivers when he signed that deal with Calgary?
Like he would have preferred to go to a bottom feeder than stay with Colorado?
1 month, 2 weeks ago on The Cody Franson Arbitration: What is he Worth?
Hopefully Franson gets signed to a decent caphit so Colorado can fit him in!
Lets see ROR in the blue and white
Franson a Bozak is idela, I'd go Franson and Kadri though.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on 10 Midsummer Thoughts on the Maple Leafs
@TheCanucksnaphook interesting to see if Kadri and Nylander can co exist on the same team.
Just watched the scrimmage, Nylander didn't look near as small as I expected.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: The Dog Days are Here
@Cloud09 Just wached the game in six, I was thinking exactly that. Looks much bigger.
@Bruffins @CanuckUKinToronto I think Nilsson is closer than Loov, would be nice to see him turn out to be our Kronwall (the good one)
@TheCanucksnaphook @Yan28 Actually in Quebec they say
"Dat gauthier is no good, he only score 28 goal"
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs’ Assistant Coach announcement to come next week
@Gilbey93 @Mitch_S2 I doubt it, this kid is going to be brought along slow. Id like to see him play a big role at the world juniors.
Comon Gauthier, exactly the player we need
@Jay_Berg Anybody could win the east…
@JMAC17 @Cloud09 Bye Bye Gardiner
@Cloud09 @Mitch_S2 Theres no denying hes quality insurance behind Bernier, we lack depth. If Reimer was moved we would need something to replace him
@Cloud09 @Mitch_S2 Could be some interest in Reimer there, although they won't pay like they need him.
Whos St Louis goalie next year? Allen?
@ayeats26 Decent reclaimation project ,but we dont have room for him.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Sunday Mashup: Leafs News and Notes
I love Bernier
Excited to see a Rupert-Rupert- Komarov line
