@Top Jimmy


He just turned 27 so he's not really young.


No idea when he became a "shut down" guy. 


He's a cheap alternative that has a little physicality.


He's the Leafs best option to play top pairing D if they want to improve their draft position (but it won't help Franson's numbers or his trade value)

Oilers appear to have close to five and a half million in space this year.

Don't think much of Hodgson as a player and wouldn't be surprised if he is dealt as the Sabres improve.


He doesn't play centre well, he doesn't score much.


He might make  a good third winger but not much more.


Almost like he's a perfect candidate for a Leaf trade.

Negativity is the better sell, 


For lots of TO fans it is their only source of information so they eat it up and regurgitate it when it suits their argument.

He hosted a pretty good game show on a cable channel (can't remember the name) and he is something of a right wing nut.

Seguin was a higher scorer than Kessel in his last year in Boston (67-60 but Phil had more goals 36-29)

Don't get the fascination with Zacha. He's big but he is under a point a game in the OHL. Drafting size for the sake of size does nothing.

Lots of good information in the article (too bad the the scouting department and front office didn't know about it and if they did they should have been fired)

I think you can forget about Larsson. He's been getting over twenty minutes of ice time since the coaching change. 


Unless he is being showcased for a deal (doubt it), the time to deal for him has passed.


Reading the article someone posted the other day, I also doubt that Jersey would want Clarkson back even if he was free (Elias hated him)

McDavid was first overall in 2012 and Konecny in 2013.


Maybe you're thinking of Dylan Strome who went second after Konecny in 2013.

Great idea and like the players you mentioned,


Other Wings that might be interesting are  dmen Aleksey Marchenko (seventh rounder in 2011).  and Ryan Sproul (2nd rounder the same year, big offense in junior but slowing down in the AHL)


Have to leave it up to Hunter and the scouts to decide which, if any, are worth picking up in deals.

But Gaborik only netted picks. 


If Kessel is being dealt there has to be at least one (or two) young roster players involved along with prospects and or picks and that type of deal is made in the summer.

He still gets tough assignments but would agree with SJ being a deeper team (lost over a minute per game SH). 


He wouldn't  be a stretch playing on the second pair over Polak.

Dillon is a very underrated player. For the last few years he regularly draws the toughest assignments (with both Dallas and San Jose) and does it very well.


Was surprised he was traded for Demers.


Would be happy to make Cam's proposed deal

I never stated that I had any more information on these players than anyone else, that is your assumption. 


Your interpretation of the scouting reports and highlight videos is unbridled optimism but I would rather wait and see. 


Is it intentional irony when you ask someone to "drop their ego"? 


What you think is not what others think so don't get all upset when they voice their disagreement.

I don't know the outcome of your suggested lines but neither do you. 


You THINK they will be offensively potent while I THINK they will rub into problems keeping the puck in the offensive zone. 


I THINK lines need some physicality and defensive presence in order to maintain puck possession while it appears you THINK you can just throw talented scorers together and not run into any problems.


You're entitled to your opinions but when you post them on a message board you're also entitled to have them shot down or torn apart when others disagree.

Tell that to the Kings, Hawks, Bruins, Blues and Ducks. 


Those dummies play the possession game with a lot of cycling and according to you it's a poor percentage play.


I might not have your intuitive grasp of "hockey" but it's clear you cannot admit that you might be wrong.


Check back in two years and tell me if your predictions are true.

One of the most defensively porous first lines in the league that does not and CAN NOT cycle in the offensive zone. 


The more you rationalize your poorly conceived lines, the worse you sound.


Keep dreaming and hoping because that's about as close to reality that these will constitute the team's top two lines.

And you're stuck in a Nintendo hockey game where big players won't erase smaller players along the boards or in the defensive zone and cycling  doesn't matter

This made me laugh


Voiceover: Dave Nonis is the soon-to-be-ex General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was hired by another ex-General Manager in November 2008, and has since become the focus of much discontent from the fans.  Lately, hackers keep replacing his picture on the team's website with a photo of a pig with shit on its balls.  Mr. Nonis argues that, although they took his money and time, the team never entered into an agreement with the plaintiff.  Additionally, Mr. Nonis argues that if corporations were held accountable for all the times they disappointed customers, their profits would be limited to just hundreds of millions.
