@docmma @wiski @Mind Bomb @LN-093 We actually get 20 days per year legally (10 days are for sick days).

@hoolihan @LN-093 @wiski @docmma @Mind Bomb St. John the baptist day is midsummer (summer solstice), also celebrated in scandinavia as their version of new year. Weird concidence isn't it?

@wiski @docmma @Mind Bomb @LN-093 Ever wonder why la belle province has a holday named after John the Baptist?
3 hours, 14 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@docmma @LN-093 Anything is better than "Civic holiday". In Nova Scotia, it's "Natal Day" whatever the hell that means. We need a holiday named after a great Canadian, not just queens of England.

Since people are talking about Subban I'll bring up something more important:
Proud of you, Manitoba. RT @SqueezeMy_Lemon @WinnipegNews Manitoba announces August civic holiday will be named Terry Fox Day"
Why doesn't all of Canada follow suit and name our "civic holiday" Terry Fox Day?

@Mind Bomb @wiski @DeclanK I guess Ford won that battle. Means he'll be re-elected??

@Ze_theLeafsFan It wouldn't be a thing in any other market. This is the giant fishbowl.
@Burtonboy @Jay_Berg Izerman's gonna join his buddy Shanny.

@dlb Mad @LN-093 Ya, I couldn't believe Mcgran got sucked into a juvenile, online leafs argument. Oh wait we do that every day. :)

@ingy56 @LN-093 @colino17 TOronto is that magical bargaining chip FA's use to increase their contract demands. Just breathing the word increases their offers.
6 hours, 33 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Greg Fenton @colino17 @LN-093 I'd take Stamkos, Subban, O'Reilly over Kessel, Phaneuf & Bozak in a heart beat.

@ingy56 @colino17 Dan Boyle says "Toronto is one of my top preferred destinations". Leafs offer more money than rangers. Boyle goes to NY. NEVER TRUST PENDING FREE AGENTS MENTIONING TORONTO.

Did you guys see the discussion (cough), war between simms and Kevin Mcgran on twitter last night regarding the relationship between Gardiner & Carlyle.
Scroll down a page till you see Mcgran's @'s. Even msm journalists get into heatedleaf arguments eh?
6 hours, 40 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@docmma @LN-093 He knows he'll get 9 million plus on the market. Why would he settle for a 7 or 8 million dollar deal.
6 hours, 51 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Mind Bomb @theacs1966 @Dangle_My_Berries Price has years left on his contract but not Lester who will be a FA this summer.
7 hours, 3 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@LeafsGuru @Leafs_17 The leafs will play better against the west now that half our team played there.
7 hours, 6 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@N_Leafs The habs offered 1 year making him an RFA next summer so this whole process all over again. It'd be like Lebron-Wade-Bosh's collusion eh? Who's the third star to come?
7 hours, 8 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
Glad the Leafs recognize Gardiner is something special, not to be let go. I don't think he even knows what he's doing sometimes but he is a rare talent. He doesn't play like a "normal" hockey player which I'm sure drives coaches crazy but he is an artist on the ice.

@Burtonboy I liked Bossy myself.
1 day, 1 hour ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@Cameron19 @LN-093 Just based on the new players, the amount Lupul is making all signs point to him being the odd man out.
@colino17 @LN-093 I don't think they get a deal done by Friday.
@Cameron19 @LN-093 Ok, so 2 years then. In two years time not only Stamkos will sign with us, so will Subban lol.
@Bobsyouruncle @colino17 I agree that Dubas probably didn't have too much to do with the moves this summer but I bet Shanny had a huge part in it. Nonis is a disciple of the Burkie "top six, bottom six", which resulted in the checking line and goon line. These moves this summer show the leafs are going to be more balanced and the playing time will be spread out evenly. The 90's redwings didn't start winning stanley cups until they mixed up the skilled Russians (Fedorov, Larionov) with the gritty Canadian players (Maltby, McCarty).
@Greg Fenton @GreekGod @LN-093 Lupul is making 5.25. Booth, 1.1. The new cost savings Leafs can't afford a Lupul. He's too fragile and not gritty enough.
1 day, 1 hour ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
@Greg Fenton @B_Leaf The true second line next season will be Winnik-Santorelli-Clarkson.
If Subban makes to arbitration, I believe he would be able to choose one or two years. If he chooses 1 year, that would make him a pending free agent this season no? I would bet Toronto would be high up there on his list of places to play. The guy loves the spotlight and this city.
@colino17 @LN-093 It'd be worth it.
@Greg Fenton @LN-093 It would be a speedy, skilled line. Who's to say it wouldn't score goals and you gotta develop the youth.
Here's my predicted lines for the new season (Lupul's traded for picks):
Dion Phaneuf - Stephane Robidas
Jake Gardiner - Roman Polak
Morgan Rielly - Cody Franson
Bernier - Reimer
@Greg Fenton @LN-093 I think Frattin was brought in to get Kadri going. Booth-Kadri-Frattin would be the official 2nd line but play less than the new third line: Winnik-Santorelli-Clarkson
Here's the Shanny master plan. Shanahan doesn't let Nonis make any long term deals this summer. Izerman trades Steven Stamkos to the Leafs at the trade deadline. Nonis is let go next spring. In the summer, Shanny's buddy Izerman is named new general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
@Greg Fenton @LN-093 I like Lupul but I think Booth was brought in to replace him. It's not my wish he gets moved, just my prediction. I predicted Grabo would be let go over Bozak so let's see.
@leafdreamer I'd like to see Winnik play on a line with Clarkson. They would be a checking, fighting, scoring machine. Throw in Komorov and you have a wrecking ball line.
1 day, 2 hours ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
(QUOTE)The Leafs third line had the worst points per game in the league compared to other third lines.(/QUOTE)
This is because Carlyle exclusively used the third line as a defensive line against other teams' first lines. If our first line isn't good enough to play against other teams' first line, then it isn't a first line.
(QUOTE)Capgeek has too many forwards listed on the Leafs roster right now, so looking at the Leafs cap hit there at the moment, it should go without saying, is not correct.(/QUOTE)
I think Lupul is the odd man out. I sat next to Lupul at a restaurant/ bar and have his jersey but I'm betting he'll be traded for picks.
"- Because the club (Avs) filed for the arbitration, the player (O’Reilly) gets to choose how long he wants the contract to be, either one or two years. "
The avs are screwed, ROR will definitely ask for one year so he's a free agent next year and the avs will have to trade him this season versus losing him for nothing.
1 week, 2 days ago on Weekend Mashup: $2.2 million apart
@reenergized @LN-093 @Xxxxxnew Jeebuz, is Subban worth 4 first rounders? Or would it be 3.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Friday Mashup: As the smoke clears for the Toronto Maple Leafs
@Kouba @darthNihilus It's almost like management intentionally signed so many bottom 6 players that Carlyle has no choice to roll out 4 lines.
@Cameron19 @darthNihilus Only 11 contracts on the books for 2015-16 too. Tons of flexibility there.
@peterbleafs @LN-093 @darthNihilus If Mirtle's projection is correct, we'll have over 4 million in cap space. If that's true Nonis did a good job managing the cap since if we trade a player like Lupul we can afford a star player's contract. It may be false hope but I'm hoping Nonis is working on a big trade. BIG.
@peterbleafs @darthNihilus The Leafs also drafted Nylander (skill) over Richie (grit).
@Xxxxxnew Trade Lupul to get our 2nd rounder back. Trade Franson for a pick as well. Add that with our 4 million in cap space and offer sheet him 11 million per year. It won't happen but Subban loves the spotlight and the nightlife in Toronto. I bet the leafs would be his choice to play besides the scabs.
Leafs at 45-1 odds of winning the cup. Sabres and flames 100-1 means they're the front runners for Mcdavid?
@Dangle_My_Berries @Xxxxxnew The top for teams who had their captain request a trade?
@Mind Bomb @Bruffins Great flick. AMC should make a show out of it like Walking Dead.
Ottawa's captaincy is cursed:
Leo Komarov @CorporalKomarov 48m
hey @ErikKarlsson65. is rumor maybe you next @Senators captain. this true? you want go from Ottawa?
@N_Leafs I'd take a chance on Heatley for cheap.
@Xxxxxnew So 20% of 70 is 14. I don't know where I heard it was 14 but it sounds right.
@Xxxxxnew They already have Stanley Cup rings, maybe they go for the money now.
@Xxxxxnew I thought 14 was a max contract.
