@DARF24 @Mitch_S2 @hometeem Yeah sounds right,

@hometeem Rielly may be the only eligible Scratch that, I think he needs to be sent down prior to the trade deadline once or something?
Something like this happened with Colborne.

@hometeem Yeah since volume of high picks has worked for all those teams.....
The only one with any progress so far is NYI, and they have the other exceptional status player.

@hometeem @Mitch_S2 It's actually a really poor idea to load up with picks in one draft. Your just as likely to pick a quality player at 80th next year and the year after as you are now.
If you load up on one draft you run the risk of losing players because of contract spots.

Gotta think Lupul and Bozak get more appealing with a slightly shorter term left.

@hometeem @Mitch_S2 I'm just saying don't judge our success in building based on where we pick in one draft.

@hometeem Is trading Dion for the 89th overall pick a solid deal?

@TheLoovTrain @Mitch_S2 Hope he still gets axed.

Today has too be looked at as a positive. We got value for the players we needed to move this year.

@rustynail @Burtonboy I think he means he reported based on a fake account

@Burtonboy This was on purpose.
@Darth Burke @rustynail FAKE
@rustynail holy shit holy shit
@Savo43 @Mitch_S2 @Komas Taberle ah the glory days.....

Brendan Smith would be a fine target for the leafs, take on Weiss if need be. Hell add in Holland if they want to give us some draft picks.
@djamon @jakeman22 Nyquist is the only one that will really cost them. If they are worried about Smith make him the centerpiece.
@TuckerForPunishment @Mitch_S2 @Komas Taberle He doesn't play small that ends the argument
@Savo43 @Komas Taberle @Mitch_S2 Size was my big issue, made it relatively far but other than size and talent I had it all.
@Komas Taberle @Mitch_S2 Yeah I've read the article siting that, alot of input form Hunter there.
@Savo43 @Mitch_S2 Yeah, the top line didn't get much ice time later in the game.
Just referring to his body type more than anything. Kid's gunna grow, and even if he lines up on the wing he plays center.
Watching the Knights game, Marner looks so lanky for a kid.
Looks like he really has some room to grow.
@Nylanderthal At the end of the day it just depends on the return, could be worth it.
Butke later said that analytics is just a tool that should reinforce what you see. Essentially what Dubas is saying. I think Dubas would agree with Burke that you can't sit behind a computer and steal players away

@Omac13 Hanifin goes third.
2 days, 4 hours ago on Game 62 Scoring Chances: Canadiens 4 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@Bryan93 Marner is pretty Kane like, I've heard Strome compared to a poor man's Tavares.
@king leary Marner is listed as a center everywhere, I'm not sure he's totally slotted as a winger. I understand he plays there in London often but not alwys.
@ProfessorRance @Mitch_S2 @Dogger If we pick a dman Id love to move up with the other pick to snag this fella.
@Dogger It's a non issue if we get stuck with Strome or Hanifin.
Hell I wouldn't be surprised to see Barzal rocket up the ranks
2 days, 5 hours ago on Game 62 Scoring Chances: Canadiens 4 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@HHT @Mitch_S2 I was going to say hopefully he falls to us in the 25ish range haha
What happened to Zacha, completely fallen off.
@Jay_Berg He's mean and a quality skater that's worth something.
But I agree makes the most sense to move him.
@traNsplantEdneWfie Not totally sure about that, to me it depends on Oilers.
I don't think the Oilers pick Hanifin at 3, I think they want a center. So if the Oilers pick 2 they take Eichel, Arizona takes Marner no problem, and I think Carolina takes Hanifin.
@dlbu dlbu E @Mitch_S2 haha, Stoner is 3.25 for another 4-5 years. I think that's worth an increase in the pick.
@Jay_Berg He's got room to grow, but top 4 is quite a stretch.
@Omac13 @Mitch_S2 That's fine Cherry's playing a role. That being said we haven't picked a player of that ilk in a long time.

@dlbu dlbu E @Mitch_S2 No issue with Tierney just don't think it makes sense to move Bernier for that package given what he can be for us.
I think you can do better with Dion, take on Stoner's contract and make it a first and I'm into it.
Not a Hudon fan in the least. I have no issue keeping Lupul around a little while longer.
And I totally missed the Boston trade, no issues there.
@traNsplantEdneWfie Yup, Bernier has been better when it counts. That matters more.
A dynamic offensive forward that backchecks hard and establishes his
presence through playing smart, puck-possession hockey. A very quick
skater gifted with great hands and hockey sense. Battles hard in all
three zones and shows a willingness to do whatever it takes to get the
puck to the back of the net; an unselfish player. Embodies the
definition of a dynamic number-generating machine who makes the players
around him better.
Alot of good in there also 118 points in 55 games. Kid is unreal. Screams Gilmour.
@dlbu dlbu E Really like the NYR deal, I think you need to retain 50% on Polak to make it work. Colorado is an interesting idea too considering the most recent O'Reilly reports.
The rest are stinkers though.
@traNsplantEdneWfie Reimer's Game 7 was heroic for the wrong reasons.
He's not as good.
@traNsplantEdneWfie Bernier was heroic last year, the fatigue is catching up with him.
Don't look too far into this year.
Above all there's not much of a market for goaltenders.
@Sebastian James Listed as a center everywhere.
2 days, 18 hours ago on GDT: Game #62, Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., CBC)
Barzal really heating up 20 something points in his last 10
@BoneChompski @Yaknowwhat Scored a hattrick the other day no?
2 days, 20 hours ago on GDT: Game #62, Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., CBC)
@MaxwellHowe @Mitch_S2 Clayton Stoner will come back with Ritchie and a 1st. I'd be ok with that.
@Bring the Cup Home @Mitch_S2 Matt Irwin, Steve Downie, Carl Soderberg (may be priced out of our range) Lee Stempniak
@MaxwellHowe @Mitch_S2 I'm assuming we lose another 8-16 mil....
@MaxwellHowe @Mitch_S2 Cap flexibility should have no effect, all of these contracts should be under 2.5 mil. It's not our cap flexibility that matters rather the contending teams giving up assets for them.
Just thought of this,
It should be a priority going into the off season to identify valuable role players who can be turned around at the deadline. Essentially buying mid round picks. Players who are respected who can mentor and help encourage a hungry sort of playing style. Winnik and Santorelli are prime examples of this. While their impact to the Leafs may not have been monumental, the value they brought could go a long long way.
@Luke_R @Mitch_S2 Doubt they move him for another pending UFA
