Nice guy, tries hard, loves the game.
@dlbu dlbu E @golieguy19 I still think we can pass Edmonton in the futility race.

@traNsplantEdneWfie No way #2 passes on Eichel
@traNsplantEdneWfie Ryan Johansen is 6'0 and 220 pounds put up 92 points in the WHL his last year. Strome is 6'3 and 187 and will probably fill out quite a bit. Put up 123 points in what might be his last year. When that boy fills out his frame he will be a truck. No way you pass on him if you're Toronto.

@Jon5200 I think the biggest mistake is people thinking that a rebuild revolves around a few players. Teams like Chicago don't win because of Toews and Kane exclusively. They win because of ridiculous depth. When you think about the dismantling of the team that happened after they won the cup. Losing Versteeg, Big Buff, Ladd ect. and they were basically right back to the top comes from years of good drafting and building depth.
Having Kessel and Dion is great and everything but without that depth of players coming in around them they will only go so far.

@Jay31 I don't want 1st round picks traded for Brian Leetch. That's how we got into this situation to begin with.

So Brodeur to retire as a Blue and join their front office instead of New Jersey's. Some kind of behind the scenes drama there that we're not privy to

I feel like having the Kessel/Bozak/???? line struggling yet still being 9-1-1 is very telling. For far too long the Leafs have been a "As Kessel goes so do the Leafs" kind of story. The top line is struggling but the TEAM is pulling together. Imagine when they start rolling.
Realistically the top line can't struggle forever and the bottom 9 probably won't put up points like this forever. Hopefully when the rest struggle, Kessel and Bozie can get rolling again.
@sniperstar @golieguy19 @DylanJ Some just fit in better. Look at TJ Brennan, literally a PPG defensemen didn't even get a sniff of the NHL this year.

@sniperstar @DylanJ Its been said he doesn't play well in the AHL. Thinks the game too well and everyone else does stupid things in the AHL.
@Burtonboy @twitting_sg Word is he got a fruit basket from the Dallas Stars and New Jersey Devil's players though.

@Xxxxxnew Our market is fickle. People really get hung out to dry and crucified by our media. We also haven't had much success save for Pat Burns and Pat Quinn. We really should hire a Pat as a new coach.

The amazing thing about Komarov is with the grit and edge he plays with he's taken 1 minor penalty in 16 games. Knows exactly where that line is.
@KingTon @golieguy19 @Burtonboy @Jmessih Which beg's the question if this was in place since the last CBA why was "Cap expert" Claude Loiselle not doing it.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #15, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Senators 3
@KingTon @Burtonboy @Jmessih This is going to get killed at the end of this year or at the next CBA. Leafs have an advantage.
@BPsotka We've been there before to. Lets keep winning.
@Mcost61 My guess is if things fall apart you might see a Kessel Bozak Lupul line circa 2013 or Kessel Bozak JVR reunited. I wouldn't count on it as long as the lines keep producing.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Tuesday Mashup: Go West
@Cameron19 @dlb Mad @Mcost61 I'm not even sure how Toews is in the conversation to be honest. His numbers are not elite. The only time he's been even PPG is in the lockout shortened year. He may be solid defensively, but to me if you are not putting up comparable offensive numbers to the best (Crosby, Ovie, Stamkos, Malkin) You are a tier below them.
@sniperstar @LyGuy @golieguy19 I forgot that bum was even on the team.

@LyGuy @golieguy19 Pffft facts. You can use facts to prove anything.
@LyGuy @golieguy19 He's a 60 point player.
No matter how bad the Leafs play right now, just remember they are doing it without one of the centerpieces of the team. I suspect once David Booth returns that the Leafs will see an immediate turnaround and double-digit winning streak. #31in08
I still don't think we know who the Leafs are yet. But we definitely know they aren't the Sabres.

@Mcost61 Reffing will go your way when you always have the puck. It gets hard to take a penalty when you have them hemmed in.
This board is insanely pessimistic right now.
