I don't see a move including a package of Holland+Franson+ . It just seems that Nonis and Shanny saw what happened last year as a true need for depth on the team. Depth such as Holland and even Frattin and Ashton (the two latter being able to be sent down?)

A line of Winnik-Kont-Komarov is a must?

@TheCanucksnaphook @KingKadri @Cameron19 I love the instant jump on Nonis about players that haven't played a game yet for their new teams.

@Cameron19 Or his hips goes on him and this whole thing is forgotten and everyone hops on the Polak train?
@Jay_Berg Did seem to be more serviceable than Orr and FML. Don't know how much upside he could have though
3 weeks ago on Steve Spott, Peter Horachek named Maple Leafs’ Assistant coaches
@Dangle_My_Berries I agree that the attention could be on the coaches more than the players, don't know if its a good thing
@Loric76 Any word on actually system changes? Or just more, "We're going to do our best" ?
@TheCanucksnaphook @Gilbey93 @KingKadri Spott going to play the good solider or try to be the up and comer?
@Gilbey93 @KingKadri Agreed! Before Edmonton washes him out. But he was always going to accept an NHL job
What does this say for the kids on the Marlies looking to take a spot? The because Spott with be there it's more likely?
AKA. Interested to see who coaches the marlies now
Welcome back boys! Been finally getting enough time at work to start posting again!
Scrivens! Hooking up with Dallas again!

@Jmessih Horse shit refs though. Not calling jack because its probably in Boston and its just not what they do? Stupid.
orr and franny the fuck hit the same guy and are behind the rush

@PEIleafnation A fair question.
Franson should not be allowed on the ice
No doubt in my mind that Leo deserves an offer, at the very least! Otherwise its just poor asset management.
7 months ago on Mr. Nonis, give him an offer: Leo Komarov would love to be a Leaf again
Could prying Johnny T. out of the Isles grasp be worth the boat load of a asking prices? They are down and getting kicked... think they would break it down for the right price?

Am I just really behind the ball right now and missed this, but did Gauthier sign an ELC with us?
Just watched the post-game interview of Reimer and I honestly have no idea what is going to happen with the goalie situation (keep both? Trade one? Which one?) Thoughts? Its hurting my brain because I love Reims

@LeafsForLife @KingKadri Wouldn't that be a sight? Pull a Patrick Roy?
Just got online to see Scott's hit, pretty obvious it was intentional to the head. What I don't get, and probably makes it worse and why Julien was going nuts, was that it was at centre ice! Its not even a battle close to the boards, he was dumping it in... Ugh just makes yea cringe.
@ConnorCrisp He is quite the little shit, isn't he?
@TheCanucksnaphook Reminds me of a drill we used to do in rugby. One on One see who can get past the other guy. Would have laughed to see Broll in that drill

@rustynail @KingKadri @Wilbur Maybe thats why I thought he was no where to be found.
@Wilbur He did, agreed. Thought Abbott was pretty invisible
@ingy56 Over reaction. For sure, what else is new
Only occurring to me now that Clarkson has yet to play... I'm in love.
@Leafbites Might be a good thing to be honest. He needs more transition time, and playing in the AHL might not be what he needs at this point?
10 months, 1 week ago on Leafs Notebook: Preseason Edition – September 23
Here are my brief thoughts as I am pretty dead from cheering. Wow what a game! It was only preseason but hell the fans ate up every minute of that brawl and continued to cheer and chant every time the big screen showed Kessel or anyone fighting. The brawl aside, which was clear in the video so no need to post about it, here are my notes from the game.
-Colbourne is not ready for a top 9 position in the NHL. No doubt in my mind, but why? He has not picked up the speed at which decisions need to be made. The 'one touch pass', or the pass the puck before the defender engages you for the puck have not yet clicked in all situations. Hes a liability for the Top 9. JVR and even Leivo (more on him in a sec) carried him tonight. If he isn't a Marlie soon, I won't understand what Randy saw.
-I cannot say anything that hasn't already been said for the following: Gardiner, Kessel, JVR, Kadri. All outstanding. The speed they play at is beyond the majority of other players on the ice.
-Lupul, Bozak, Clarkson had pretty good nights. I think its just working their way back.
-Now Leivo. He did not look out of place with JVR, not only speed wise (although a few passes got away from him) but his cycle game was better than I thought. He obviously is a consideration for a call up... eventually.
-Finally, two players I wanna highlight tonight! Ashton and MacWilliam. Ashton showed each and every shift that he wants to compete and hound for the puck. His speed isn't amazing (noticeably slower than kessel) but his positional play on defense makes up for it. He laid down the body a few times and dropped the mits for the brawl. He did well tonight. MacWilliam was in my opinion the most steady d-men of there for most of the night. He is a horse in pursuing the puck and attacking the body. He isn't actually a skate at will d-men but he made me watch him every time Buf was in the offensive zone. My depth chart ? MacWilliam is ahead of Rielly, who didn't show up for me until after the line brawl and the rosters were cut in half basically. Sorry he needs to go to junior.
Shit sorry men. It was an amazing game

Last post coming up here, but I just got home from the game.
Morning Lads, I'll be heading to the game tonight? Should I post my thoughts/anyone to look for? (I know the lineups aren't posted yet)
10 months, 1 week ago on Preseason Post Game: Game #4 – Leafs 3 at Sabres 2 (SO)
I find little surprise here. The roster is just too competitive at the moment for D'Amigo and others to get a look. I expect injuries will change this through out the season. AKA everything we already knew.
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Leafs cut roster to 35: Blacker, Biggs assigned to Marlies
P.s this is Frattking

@-Keon- King Kadri seems simple enough
Glad to turn on the labtop to such sweet sweet news! Welcome back Leafs hockey, you sexy devil!
@Irishfanman @Leafs rule @leafscapguru Probably one of the most forgot aspects of this line-up - the end of games do not have the same line-up as the beginning. The shuffle of players for certain roles is the whole point of getting versatile players in the first place!
