4 days, 10 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential

Reply

@CanuckUKinToronto @MLHS_Luke I look at the team at the start of last year vs the start of this year.  The start of last year, we came off an impressive playoff series (albeit a heart breaker).  We had two strong candidates for the starter's role in net.  We picked up THE free agent of the summer in David Clarkson.  We acquired Bolland without losing a roster player.  Fraser and McClement had fantastic seasons the year prior and we assumed that would continue.


This year....??

@CanuckUKinToronto This team is a huge question mark, just like every other team in the East.  On paper we are worse off this year than last, but you just have to look at MON and NYR this year to see that bad teams can make it far in the east.

Anyone know if the Netherlands quarterfinal is being streamed online?  I looked at CBC but couldn't tell if they're streaming it live or just showing the replay later on.

@mtommy I have a feeling we all wish it, but we'll probably trade Franson, Reimer plus for Thorburn.

@Cameron19 I think most of us would accept that.  Someone tell Nonis.

Mirtle has Robidas as our #2:

As of right now, the Leafs blueline looks as so: Phaneuf - Robidas Gardiner - Franson Rielly - Polak

@The_Polish_Cannon @MLHS_Luke Though that makes trading D'Amigo away a bit of a head scratcher.

Today would be a great day for a fire sale.  Collect as many first round picks as we can.  No one over 25 is safe.  Dare to dream.

@Cameron19 @MLHS_Luke He could well go 4-4.5 on the market.  I think 3.5 would be reasonable in Toronto.  But sounds like there's no chance of that, so he's out.  Cap hit aside, at the end of the day we're worse without him.

@Cameron19 Shame.  Great fit for this team, but his demands (or at least what we've heard) make it clear he is not for us.

@TheCanucksnaphook @MLHS_Luke Sounds about right.  I have a really strong long game, just not consistent.  I've been going to the range for a few weeks, will probably be ready to play soon.

@TheCanucksnaphook @MLHS_Luke Was going to ask you about that.  I bought a set of low end clubs (Calloway Xtreme) as I am trying to get back into golf.  Only played as a kid, was never really good.  Any tips on getting back into it?

@MaxwellHowe Prior to these playoffs I would have argued that we absolutely have to rebuild, but man, two crappy teams in New York and Montreal made the semis.  IMO we aren't much different than them.  Get a few lucky bounces in the SCF and the Rangers could have won it.


That is how Nonis et al. will be selling it to MLSE, I imagine.

Reply

@MaxwellHowe I fear that people's own job security (Nonis and old staff) will strongly oppose a rebuild, as it will be admitting defeat.  I am absolutely for a rebuild - this is the year to steal a pile of top 10 picks, set the team up to tank this season, and we're ready to grow.

@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @CanuckUKinToronto Everything I hear from Colorado fans is that their defence is terrible.  


Also don't understand why people bring up trading Phaneuf without talking about a rebuild.  Do you want a rebuild?  Because that's how you get a rebuild.
