Leafs might be at a tipping point where the roster is deep enough, that next year a top end FA would look at our lineup and think...with me in there, it only gets deeper. Now they think, I have to carry the freight because there is no depth.
8 hours, 44 minutes ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@loomx Yeah Id have to say this Winnik thing puts us into a category of a really hard to beat team with significant depth.
10 hours, 6 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@Burtonboy Leafs want 4 lines they can roll and roll and roll. And they are leaving nothing to chance this offseason.
10 hours, 36 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
Hate work, will hang out here for a bit. Each line has to have a functioning pair...with a complimentary winger. Leafs have the makings of these...
We have a floater by the name of Kessel we could attach to any of these pairings. Making them immediately our number one line
10 hours, 40 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@Walter_White @dlb Mad He gets hate from morons who impose their hate onto him..when in fact they are mad at the Maple Leafs management. I am a fan of rolling 4 strong lines and not a fan of having a few players making $10 million and a watered down rest of the team. If we can roll 4 good lines we beat most teams most nights. Not sure we are there now but Kadri and Bozak are two really good centers...Holland, Nylander might be the other two...or Gauthier...or who ever.
11 hours, 36 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@dlb Mad @peterbleafs I do not expect that will happen at all. But I am in the mode pretty much of forgetting about hockey till later this year.
15 hours, 18 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
I just want Gardiner signed and done with, do not care what form of contract. Then see what happens at camp etc.
15 hours, 26 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@Groundhogday I agree
15 hours, 59 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
Leafs have done such a good job with contracts this offseason. Now just Gardiner to go. Very pleased with all the actions taken to date. Still do not think we get far with it, but the entertainment value of the new people and kids will be great.
2 days, 5 hours ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
Love that Reimer has re-signed, one of the classiest athletes around, a great person. Good for him, the Leafs and more proof that the MSM know nothing, spew garbage and are not worth the time of day.
2 days, 16 hours ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@dlb Mad The guy isn't arrogant but he is ultra self confident, so he vastly over states his experience base and isn't shy to claim it as part of his development.
5 days, 15 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Dubas Mania
@MaxwellHowe I think this lineup is terrific as is, I would go with it, I like the line combinations as well. Cap space is good, values for Gardiner/Riemer are good. 3rd line can score, which is awesome, 4th line will be a workaholic group...which is needed.
5 days, 16 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Dubas Mania
@Bruffins Outta here, 2 minutes is my self imposed limit till the camp opens.
6 days, 9 hours ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference
@Reether Carlyle is the only head scratcher....Nonis has a decent track record, but I wonder about the Loiselle firing due to cap management. Wouldn't the GM be on top of the cap status big time? Something about that incriminates Nonis as well.
Interesting changes. Good stuff.
6 days, 10 hours ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference
@Komas Taberle @Xxxxxnew Did he? Gunnar did.
1 week, 2 days ago on The Cody Franson Arbitration: What is he Worth?
@TOHockeyNut @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs Its the game. What the Leafs and him want is somewhere around 3.1...Leafs likely at 2.9 and he wants 3.2 or something.
@Xxxxxnew He is right, immaterial information as it pertains to the Leafs today. Dont care.
@Loric76 @Burtonboy Disagree, if his health is better (assuming he was playing hurt) he is worth a fair amount.
@Mitch92 @drummond You'd make an awesome business person....but I think you are better suited to working within the government.
@mike-username I think if he wins we can sign and trade or walk away from the ruling and he can be a UFA?
@Cameron19 @Yan28 Franson was just slow as all can be this year.
@Bruffins @ingy56 a peach pit of a day
1 week, 3 days ago on Friday Mashup: 3 Unknowns Remain; Gord Dineen TSN1050 Interview
@ingy56 Out where? What a stupid garbage tweet.
@Burtonboy Id put a Team in Mexico City. All those people sprinting over the border are just trying to get to NHL cities...if we put a team there, it solves Americas border crisis.
@MaxwellHowe Winnipeg GM is a gutless coward. Afraid to do anything.
Looking at Ottawa, we are not much better than then once you get past Kessel.
Legwand, Turris: Kadri, Bozak....a slight adv to Ottawa at this point in time until Kadri hits next level
MacArthur, Ryan, Michalek, : Lupul, Kessel, JVR...we are clearly better
Karlson, Cowan, Methot: Phaneuf, Robidas, Rielly/Gardiner. A small edge to the Leafs.
Anderson: Bernier....a wash if Anderson is on his game.
Ottawa Bottom 6...Toronto Bottom 6...a wash basically.
@B_Leaf I hope your two year plan isnt like this, we do not look any better then...your current roster is a bottom third calibre team, so we better expect a weak season. In 2 years I would need to see:
JVR Nylander Kessel
Leivo Kadri (some one new)
Komarov Bozak Clarkson
AShton Gauthier Broll
Defense not a problem...current players plus Marlies will be top end NHL D core.
@B_Leaf If He is a direct replacement for Kulemin and his dramatic scoring prowess. No harm getting him, but expectations are low for stats. Just be a good fore checker.
@Mcost61 Whoever this is, needs a cuff on the back of the head.
1 week, 4 days ago on Maple Leafs re-sign Peter Holland to 2-year, $1.55 million deal
@Loric76 I didnt think Jobs had that many relatives working there.
@dlb Mad Getting sucked in by Ekland? Shame on you.
@Mcost61 Ignore all this garbage, as that is all it is.
@Mcost61 @peterbleafs @Burtonboy So many power hungry losers running around the planet thinking they are special. List is lengthy but the world is better off without them. Bullying mentality exists pervasively through our leadership structures all around the world.
@Burtonboy Man talk about a tragedy that will certainly cause a huge reaction on blame. Russia and Ukraine will blame each other and the world will blame Russia.
@LeafsGuru Yes about right, maybe $3million cap hit. Would make him incredibly tradeable if that need ever arose.
@ingy56 @peterbleafs If they take out Orr and say Smith, they have another $1.5 million of cap space to play with.
@ingy56 @peterbleafs Yes those two or maybe add Orr to that list.
Leafs now have 15 forwards signed on Capgeek so obviously a few will be going down or out.
@ProfessorRance @MaxwellHowe I do not see this management group making a Clarkson mistake again. They will try to move him if he doesnt smarten up this year.
Love the cap hit of Holland, and Ashton. Really good deals for the Leafs, now it is up to Holland to kick up his game to really earn a solid 3rd line C salary or maybe push for a 2C role in a few years.
@wendelsway1 @dlb Mad And in their final year they each will make a million dollars, something all of us take years to earn.
1 week, 5 days ago on Matt Frattin on TSN 1050
@LeafFan15 @dlb Mad Yes when they played tough grinding hockey, it seemed the opposition was far more afraid of them , than when they simply went on to fight John Scott.
@dlb Mad I remember that shift...and there were several like this during that period...but none since.
@Burtonboy @LeafsGuru @ingy56 Yup they were pissed at each other for likely a efw days then its over with.
@Loric76 @Burtonboy America has a thousand armpits.
@Burtonboy They have a lot of really good young prospects, great to see this hockey interest.
@Burtonboy @ingy56 Ive a feeling Franson gets awarded up near $2.8 million and Reimer around $2.1 million. What do they do with term on these things. One year maybe.
@Loric76 @wendelsway1 @Burtonboy @Mind Bomb Love home made pudding!
@MaxwellHowe Love it, our kids nowadays experience nothing but violence in everything they watch. Or some other mental manipulation. The world is not a place for children to develop good mental health...no wonder almost every attribute in child development is deteriorating in our society.
