@MaxwellHowe Yes, that's because Stamkos will be with the Leafs. :-p

@dlb Mad @lister Meh, such a stupid exercise for "team building." Even worse when businesses do it.
@vinoa @lister @MaxwellHowe It has certainly shown on the ice hasn't it?
@MaxwellHowe I roll my eyes at stuff like that. What really is the point of that? And do you seriously think whatever that point is, is achieved?
@rickpearce76 I've always thought a structure like that was wise for later on getting a draft pick or two from teams that need to get to the floor but not actually pay the floor.

@B_Leaf @ShotgunCharlie @Jordan29 More like a sack of potatoes.
@B_Leaf Seems to me with that money you should have bought a country instead..
@leafmealone @lister @wiski For Bergevin?
@wiski Or perhaps chalk? Even weirder.
@wiski Chocolate? Weird but whatever gets you through the day.
@Jordan29 @Cloud09 So is an asteroid slamming into the Earth but I'd rather it not happen.
@Loric76 Grass is greener...
@Cloud09 @Jordan29 NO!
@ShotgunCharlie @lister @Axle_Goalie @Reether Should be a main page thing too. It stays put for the entire day regardless if 15 other articles are posted.
@Axle_Goalie @ShotgunCharlie @Reether Every day they should do a clearly labelled with the day's date general thread.
@RandomScrub @4evrblue @lister I was talking about hockey off-topic comments. For example a Gleason comment in one of the previous threads. Does it simply get deleted or get moved to here?
Do off-topic comments simply get deleted or moved to where appropriate?

3 months, 2 weeks ago on Sticking by the wrong guy
I am going to take these events as:
1) the head coach candidate they want isn't available (yet)
2) the assistant coaches were sacrificial lambs
3) the Leafs have lots of money and no cap on staff so Carlyle gets added years for the $$$
4) 2014-2015 is probably going to be similar to 2013-2014 (on the playoff bubble)
5) even if I get TV back this summer I'll be watching games sparingly
6) Carlyle will be gone after next season
7) a new head coach will be hired
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Press Conference: Randy Carlyle staying, extended 2 years
@CanuckUKinToronto Haven't been on the last little while (busy!) so I don't know if this has been thrashed out yet but I read some whispers about Babcock possibly becoming available after his contract is done after next season. Would you be willing to go with Carlyle for one more season if you knew unofficially that Babcock was waiting in the wings?
Of course there'd be player changes as well but I was curious about the Babcock thing.

@ingy56 @lister I was initially wondering if the guy was starting to have a seizure or something.
@ingy56 @lister@wendelsfist Enh. I suppose. I could still live without it.
@ingy56 Same guy? (Not watching.)
@ingy56 I was wondering if the guy was part of some prison work program or something. Like those guys who pick up trash on the side of the road. One of the worst unintentional anthem singing attempts I've ever witnessed.
@ingy56 @wendelsfist None should be. If fact none should be done.
@wiski @maple1967leafs I would have preferred a spring, summer or fall of rain over that damn cold! Sure it would be depressing as hell but at least I'd be able to feel my toes.
@Mcost61 Oh and the Canucks too.
@maple1967leafs @lister@wiski Probably been a TV expert too long. Killed too many brain cells.
@Mcost61 No. I hate the smell of the stuff. Gross.

@Why Bother @Burtonboy Well to be honest, the players are professionals playing a game, being paid lots of money and competing for the Cup. What's more to motivate?
4 months, 1 week ago on So begins the Brendan Shanahan era
@mcloki Yeah I agree with Yaknowwhat and Tim Horton. One year. In a cap system. Assuming deals weren't possible without giving up the farm which all of you would have screamed about.
@philthethrill @Giller Can't give that to Bolland, cap ya know. Trotz however $$$$$$$.
@Jay31 That guy has taken too many blows to the head.
@Why Bother @Burtonboy Yeah TL told Nonis to go get Bernier but I think the trade was a good one. In retrospect maybe Reimer should have gone instead of Scrivens but remember Bernier hadn't had a full season, in fact he hadn't played all that much under Quick. Clarkson was the prized UFA that the Leafs managed to get. The cap hit is a little high and the first bad season, well, practically everybody was bad. I'm prepared for a mulligan on that. The cap is going up as well, albeit not as high as everyone thought. Kessel is being paid the going rate for goal scorers.
The deal I most dislike is Phaneuf's. Too large of a cap hit and too long. I've never been a fan of Phaneuf though I don't despise him. He has some good attributes but not for the deal he signed, he's not captain material (not that I'm a big captain proponent) and shouldn't be playing the minutes he does. On any Cup capable team he would not be in the first pairing of defencemen
Bolland I wouldn't mind back at a reasonable rate. Kuli needs to drop his $$$ or be shipped out. He is way overpaid. That 30 goal season was a mirage and not likely to happen again unless paired with the likes of Malkin.
As for Shanahan and Nonis, I've been in that situation twice. As long as the new boss and the now underling are on the same page it can work. If not, changes happen. For me both times the boss got turfed which is unusual.
@B_Leaf I would find it hard to jump ship. The new team would likely be team B for me.
@MaxwellHowe @lister He sucks at that too.
Alright now I'm outta here!
