Bio not provided
@CanuckUKinToronto @Mitch_S2@MaxwellHoweFranson had an awful year, but lets agree that there is quite a bit of talent there.
I don't want to sell low.
3 days, 8 hours ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
@MaxwellHowe @Mitch_S2Either way Percy, Granberg MacWilliam or Brennan.
Franson at 15 a night with a calmer player like RAnger may not be too bad.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Mitch_S2He's playing 15 minutes a night there. And Staal had a solid full year. Guys do eventually get away from their injuries.
@traNsplantEdneWfie Especially trading Kadri, which is exactly who the sens want.
I wouldn't trade Kadri for anyone over 27
With all this Staal talk I think we are missing out on the one who could help us out the most.
Marc Staal is a UFA in 2015, he would compliment our two young guns well.
Franson - Ranger
Trade the rest
3 days, 9 hours ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
@ingy56 @Mitch_S2Eilliot would be a solid signing. I've always like Alex Stalock too. I think he could handle a full time role if required.
We were so dependent on Bernier, if he goes down again we are screwed without a guy like Reimer.
4 days, 6 hours ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
I really wish we didn't have to trade Reimer. I just think now they owe it to him.
But having a young tandem like that makes the most sense, if we move Reimer I think it would difficult to get a goalie of a similar ability.
@Cameron19 @Jordan29 It's actually kind of embarrassing to see how many GM's get starry eyed over picks.
Gillis getting the 9th overall pick for Schneider is awful.
Considering what Schneider went for I can still see Reimer getting a late first.
5 days, 1 hour ago on Morning Mashup
I personally have no problem adding another extremely mobile guy.
@Jordan29 @Cameron19His value has to be similar to that of Schneider's who went for 9th overall.
I gotta think Stastny stays and they move ROR.
@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2Plays monster minutes. better positionally than almost anything we have.
Also can't help but think theres a fit with the yotes.
Primarily around Kadri and Yandle. They would love a top end offensive talent, and have been rumored to be shopping Yandle since the emergence of OEL.
I just can't see how the money works.
@ Don Cherry This draft is big on big talented wingers.
More the pick to a team who wants wingers and has an abundance of top end talent at center ice. IE Colorado.
Cory Schneider, Bo Horvat was the player drafted.

@mike_84 I think Franson would get it done.
Thank being said why? Your jusy playing the odds. Lets move the pick for a young player.
Last year a young all star and potentially elite goaltender was traded for the 9th overall pick.
If we can move the 8th for anything similar I would much rather do that.
Would love this kid.

@dlb meh @ConnorCrisp Injuries aren't an excuse, everyone has to deal with them.
We didn't deal with them effectively and Carlyle had a big role in that.
That being said Bolland for a full year is huge, as well not losing Komarov would have been big. This problem should be corrected over the next few years as we being to graduate some big wingers. Broll is ideal, as well as D'amigo.
And even with all the Clarkson hate he can still be a very effective player.
How about this for a team full of centers
To Col: Cody Franson, 2014 1st (8th) Select one of the many big talented wingers Richtie, Perlini
To Tor: O'Reilly
Gives the leafs a dog on the puck, one of the league leaders in takeaways, a selke candidate at what 21?
Also avoids the whole Clarkson-scenario with a guy like Stastny.
@Zep2 Who really cares who you give up if you continue to be one of the best teams in the league?
@Burtonboy @Mitch_S2 Ideal being him changing with the team.
I'm just saying they always encourage, actually demand growth from the players not sure why that wouldnt apply to the coaching staff.
@Burtonboy To me the ideal situation is Carlyle changing his coaching style.
I dont like letting the players off the hook for tuning him out.

@Jmessih Nothing wrong with Jared McCann.....
1 week, 1 day ago on Morning Mashup: Drafting in the 8 spot
Weird situation... I think the best thing for the leafs is to fire Carlyle.
But doesn't it bother you that as the general manager you pick a supervisor for your employee's and they just decide that they aren't going to respect his decisions?
Where in any other proffessional setting do the employee's pick their direct supervisor?
There needs to be some accountability there. I say fuck you to the players, I'm the boss I pick the coach not you.
@FrankFerrant @Mitch_S2 solid asset management. I imagine your destined for a senior management roll.. that or driving range attendant
@FrankFerrant @Mitch_S2Where do you expect to get a dman better than Phaneuf? Thats a serious question.
@FrankFerrant Thats a terrible idea.
@Loric76 @Mitch_S2@Keeon@mr_hanieI got in an argument with another leaf fan awhile back. He was arguning that the habs have far superior prospects.
Starting off with Tinordi, a future norris winner and then his exact words were "the next Hal Gill"
@Keeon @mr_hanieThey have a bunch of 23/24 year olds with the big club.
the top 25 under 25 is a much better ranking.
Similarly colorado has a poor prospects pool, no one will deny the young talent there.
@Greg Fenton @mr_hanieOilers have been rebuilding as long if not longer than the leafs...
@rustynail @Mitch_S2@mr_haniewhos been doin the tweetin

@mr_hanie full roster link?
@loomx @Gilbey93Not sure were your getting that.
Didnt Button have Draisaitl like 20th overall at one point?
1 week, 6 days ago on Game Review: Game #81, Panthers 4 vs. Leafs 2
@CanuckUKinToronto @BurtonboyHitch will be resigned though. Unless St. Louis disappoints but even at that I still doubt he gets the axe after a very good year.
Interesting to see that Hockeys future has Connor Brown in the top 50 prospects.
@MaxwellHowe I'd consider moving a Franson plus package or even Kadri for Hanzal.
@Yaknowwhat Who do you expect to get to replace Phaneuf. What team is willing to give up a player thats better than Dion.
Sign Ryan O'Rielly to a 7 year $6,728,781 contract or the current equivalent.
Compensation is a First, Second and Third round Draft picks
To Edm: Gleason
To Tor: 4th Round Pick
To LAK: Lupul
To TOr: Brown
J.V.R. - O'Reilly - Kessel
Kadri - Bozak - Brown
Ashton - Holland - Clarkson
Komarov - Sobotka- Broll
Gardiner - Phaneuf
Rielly - Ranger
Gunnarsson - Granberg
D still needs a big mean body hoping Ranger can deliver.
2 weeks ago on NHL Draft Lottery Odds (updated: April 11)
@Cameron19 @Jordan29@Mitch_S2@XxxxxnewI agree that the defense can wait a little. Much more promising than what we have down the middle.
Been pretty happy with Ranger too, only guy on the team who looks pissed off.
Gleason should be gone he doesnt add much.
@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2@CanuckUKinToronto@XxxxxnewNot even close, O'Rielly has already recieved Selke nominations and hes like what 23?
Led the league in takeways this year too. I want a guy who is hard on the puck and drives the play thats the best way to play a matchup.
@Cameron19 @CanuckUKinToronto@Mitch_S2@XxxxxnewBozak isn't moved for at least 3 years if it ever comes to that. I'd rather a more physical player than Stastny. Physical in the sense that they are more difficult to contain. O'rielly fits the bill. Make capspace and offer him 7 for 7.
Move Kadri and Franson for a dman.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Cameron19@Mitch_S2@Xxxxxnewdoubt Bozak is moved.
@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2@XxxxxnewStastny would be fine, and a quiet enough acquisition.
@Cameron19 @Mitch_S2 Im not saying Burke was patient, I'm saying he wouldnt take orders.
Im not saying they have announced the need for immediate results, i just like his assertive approach. And either way everyone knows the leafs need immediate results.
I think the issue with the previous regime was when senior management asked Burke to do something he likely told them to fuck off. I think Leiweke just brings more urgency.
He wont tell Nonis to get a center he'll say your job depends on it.
@Xxxxxnew Not really... he pushed lombardi at every big name there was.
@Glove Dropper @Mitch_S2Lots of talk about Drasaitl falling.
The only encouraging thing I can see going into the off season is the impatience Leiweke has.
He wanted improvement in net and they got a star.
As moronic as Holmgren is I often thought that Burke could have used a little more urgency like that.
I think Leiweke brings that. Hopefully he see's a similar RFA situation in O'rielly that he did with Bernier.
Hopefully the leafs get lucky this draft and someone falls hard.
Similar to the couturier year or even grigorenko
Could Ranger become a similar story to Jay Bouwmeester?
Touted for offense and not putting it together. Finaly using his size, strength and speed to become a quality shutdown guy.
The player is definitely there we saw it last night, only dman who looks mean on the team.
