@Bruffins I pick both because I want to finish last.  I pick neither because I want a chance to make it to the playoffs

A week away from the season and the activity level on here sucks.  Leaf apathy has really built up momentum at least in here and likely all across the leaf fan base.

@philthethrill 
The two games I saw look pretty much the same as last year.  So nothing has changed.  If Orr is in the lineup one more time this pre season it is assured last year is on the replay.

@Jordan29 @mtommy Carrick is working his hardest to get into this league.  Clarkson is supposed to be just getting his game in shape for the season.  Either way I dont really care, if you like Clarkson good for you.  He is completely replaceable by any minimum wage player...and is therefore a complete waste of a (cap space) roster spot.

@Cameron19 @mtommy He is so replaceable by a guy earning $1 million.  So good riddance.  He brings nothing to the table.

@Jay_Berg I love the tradition of HNIC, Sportsnet are making a mistake changing the name.  they should keep the brand and make it their own.  It has a ton of credibility.

See ya Booth, dont let the door hit you and injure you further on the way out.  Loser.  Same with you Clarkson.  Wont miss these clowns one bit.  Sad that Carrick was sent down given everyones comments.  Seems like earning a spot is once again not the real Leafs.

@Zep2 @Yaknowwhat He is still twice as fast as Franson.  Carlyle should criticize Fransons speed if he is going to criticize Percys.

@Burtonboy I am so okay with rookie mistakes even if it costs us the season in time....since it is these rookies who will be in their prime when we make a cup run.  Am not sure Franson will be here then.

@Burtonboy @Zep2 Losing Clarkson, Franson due to injuries is actually a blessing in disguise, allows the Leafs to give lots of ice time to some deserving Marlies who are ready to graduate.

@Yaknowwhat @peterbleafs Exactly the very fact that RC is still dressing him tells me its RCs team still.  Pressure will be on Nonis to deal with it.  Orr should just retire, take his cash and relax.

Good to see Randy Carlyle back in old form.  Orr playing instead of faster more capable players.  Outshot again...first line together as he always intended it.  No innovation, perfect.

@Mitch92 @peterbleafs That would be  unreal.  Any word on Clarkson?  I personally do not mind injuries that keep some of our regular roster players out of the lineup.  I would like windows of opportunity for our young players and if we suck...no problem.

@Mitch92 He certainly has given hints of being sensational down the road.  I got the same feeling from Connor Brown, that guy is a dark horse to be a star.

@drummond @theacs1966 If youve taken your adoration of hockey players to find similar looking movie stars, it might be a hint you need to rethink your hockey passion.

@Cameron19 I actually believe you are right.  Nonis and Carlyle both have a short leash and they both know it.  And the players, I am certain Liewicke was right and was repeating something Shanahan said about the character of some of our players...notwithstanding the poor coaching.

@Potcy Its not really scary if Robidas can't play.  We just plug in Percy or Loov or whoever else.  We have decent depth everywhere.  The gap between the NHL roster and the Marlie top D is not near as large as a few years ago.  Robidas is important only if you trade say a Franson.

@Burtonboy Agree with that, but Id still not want him in the NHL RNH already has far too many injuries under his belt because he was physically not ready.  Brown and Nylander are top 6 forwards in the making, so lets not hurry them.  Dump Lupul at some point to make room for one next season.

Opinions starting to form:

1) Leivo to the minors

2) Kontiola is  not needed nor is he an upgrade anywhere so he can go.

3) Franson still too slow, do not care that he can get points.

4)  Leafs havent really changed defensive systems, still looks the same to me

5) Kozun actually should stay up

6) Komarov is kick ass awesome

7) Brown and Nylander just need a year in the minors...both are elite players up and coming and  yes Brown has it.

8) Kadri looks bigger and stronger this year.

9) Santorelli has not stood out, so average.  So far Holland is out front.

10) Loov looks really good, just needs to get past the jitters, but he is big, strong, fast, good sense...just nervous

11) Our goaltending is high end, very very good.

12) Our coaches offered no structure to the game when they put lines together, obviously they are just watching and not teaching much.

13) Bodie,, Devane, Orr and the other big guy can go.  Bodie has a bit of heart but so what.

14) Broll is a powerful player Marlies for one year then he has to be up....can already play in the NHL IMO

15) Granberg sad to say, did not impress, average speed not sure about him.

16) Percy looks very solid, aside from jitters he seems big, strong and very capable and confident.

@dlb Mad Yes I paid attention to him so so many here were lauding him as the second coming of Ron Wilson.  But frankly, he stunk out the joint, the worst player on the ice for the Leafs.  Kozun outplayed him by a ton.
