@ingy56 @Burtonboy A lot of crappy players on that roster, seems like a sad thing to be proud of by the Leafs.

@deedrag I think Bell and Rogers share ownership of the MLSE but if another NHL team comes in Bell splits off and partners with an investor for that team.  Now that would create a real media rivalry which would be good for the game.  So in a way Rogers will pay the franchise fee on behalf of Bell for the new team by buying Bell out.  Bell just swaps their Leaf ownership for their new Toronto team.

I think the expansion talk is just in the pre marketing stage so at least two more years.  The NHL wants to initiate hype, then get some investors onto the ideas, create some pricing competition then do an expansion....Likely use Toronto 2nd franchise as the lost leader to drive pricing up for other sites.

BTW the departed Leafs are better than the incoming Leafs when you look at that list of names.

When did we sign David Clarkson?  Thought we had him last year but do not remember him playing.  So much to think about...well I hope he plays like he did with New Jersey.

@MaxwellHowe If there was true parity the Leafs would have been in the playoffs 50% of the time at least.

@Burtonboy If all those guys we signed for the bottom six cannot take most of the PK load off of Bozak and JVR then we have found the wrong players. Kessel, Bozak, JVR, Kadri should avoid the PK if at all possible.  And if those bottom 6 centers can't win faceoffs get rid of them.  Bozak shouldnt have to be on for every draw.

@Burtonboy @peterbleafs @mcloki @jimmyg65 Agreed on that one point regarding Kessel.   However, the notion that no other Leafs are considered as top 50 NHL players reinforces the ineptitude of the Leafs.

@Burtonboy @peterbleafs @mcloki @jimmyg65 Are there any prospect ranking sites that you would recommend that are more objective then?  Or any other projections for this season?

@mcloki @peterbleafs @jimmyg65 Boston were perpetual winners because Big Papi was so reliable in the clutch. New York because Jeter was so reliable.  Jays stars are never reliable and come through only occasionally.  


My criticism on the Leafs was based purely on the rankings in this years The Hockey News annual.  Given that I tend to overstate or over value all things Leafs I have decided to not do that this year.  I want proof.

@jimmyg65 @mcloki Absolute horseshit, you have no proof they are trying harder today than they were 10 years ago.  Even this year, our prospects are rated 29th out of 30 in the entire NHL, we cobbled together about 5 trash heap players to shore up our bottom 6 and you think thats caring?  Since Burke got here it was about getting younger, better, faster....and now 5 years later, our prospects are amongst the worst in the nHL and we are projected to finish well out of the playoffs again.  Nice try.

@mcloki Yes they have to now be considered in the same choking conversation as the Leafs.  And quitters just like the Leafs. Its so easy to be a fan of anything Toronto as it sets the bar so low for what is acceptable. I mean anyone can feel good comparing themselves to Toronto sports teams and sports teams management.

@Loric76 @CanuckUKinToronto @peterbleafs When I looked at every teams top 10 prospects, just skimming them I would have put Leafs middle of the pack.  Some of their opnions are silly IMO.  Also we have Rielly who should be a prospect but is already a high end NHL D Man.  Some teams look downright brutal.

@CanuckUKinToronto According to the press our prospect pool is very weak, 29th in the NHL per The HOckey News.  So I think we may be way over valuing most of our prospects.  I think Nylander is our only top quality one, the rest very uncertain.

@B_Leaf Always optimistic at the start of the year, but every publication predicts the Leafs out of the playoffs again and they also rank our prospects in the bottom 3 of the entire NHL.  These publications usually do not end up that far off reality.  So Id have to expect our team is nowhere near as good as we all hope it is.

@B_Leaf @peterbleafs I agree with that, the author of that article clearly was just taking a shot at RC by putting Orr in that roster.
