Hate these quote interpretations various people make during camp...always taken out of context in Toronto and always packed with negativism. I am going to try to purely ignore all the quotes and what they infer from anyone. Without Phook here we have no way of knowing what is really going on at camp...so fuck it. Get the roster done and lets get underway.
@Burtonboy Man they should cut that roster down in half after the first day. Ridiculous amount of bodies to have even if they are screening for the ECHL and AHL teams.

@FRyan I wouldnt play him ever again.

@Burtonboy press release from Canadiens is Vail failed to meet the height standards of the Canadiens. He was advised to work on height reduction.l
3 days, 11 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @peterbleafs @Burtonboy Oh shit he did play more, I didnt look down his stat sheet far enough. Same with Johansen, my fault.

@sniperstar @peterbleafs @ Keon @deedrag If he skates like last year, even if he moves himself it will take all season for him to leave.
@deedrag @sniperstar Oh wow seriously, that is what is on your mind about this team? We are in good shape if we have the luxury to think that far ahead.
@ Keon @deedrag Its only a matter of time before the Leafs trade Franson this season. LIkely just waiting for a decent deal. Knoedel can replace Franson since we need at least one D who is over 6'5" for those big guys on the opposition.
@barjv01 @ Keon He impressed in a rookie prospect game...not much of a standard but at least he excelled in that phase of this preseason.
@Burtonboy That is a good logical article and one most would agree with.
@ Keon @peterbleafs @Burtonboy says he is 22 and Kadri 23 and Kadri spent most of his time playing 8 to 10 minutes a game on the 3rd line.
3 days, 14 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
@Burtonboy This Johansen has 80 pts in 120 games while Kadri has 100 pts in 140 games. Johansen can be our 2nd line center.
@Cameron19 If he is their number one center...then we trade our number one center (Bozak) for theirs...and we can sweeten it with a guy like Holland and a 2nd rounder maybe.
@ Keon He also has pictures of every avatar in here, taped to his wall with strings all leading to a central placard....MLHS

@ingy56 @Dangle_My_Berries Definitely looked terrfic
@dlb Mad @MaxwellHowe His job is to win, and to win you need to outshoot opponents. His teams here have sucked, choked and never had the will to win when it got tough. He may be a wonderful person, but thats for his family to care about. For the Leafs it is to win and put a system on the ice that matches his roster and get the best out of them. He fails miserably on that.
I dont get why everyone thinks the Bruins are in cap trouble. They have 21 on the roster just over the cap in payroll but that includes over $4million for Savard who clearly is out. They need to sign Rielly Smith and Torrey Krug and thats it. And they can send one D man back down as with Krug signed they would have 8 D men.
@barjv01 @Yaknowwhat @MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy We shouldnt give that guy the time of day in here. He is on the way out, he has lost all his goodwill chips with the fan and the city so who really cares what he says or does. Its best to not quote him in here, post anything about him and just allow him to disappear whenever he does.
@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy Exactly and they also realize they sucked and choked the past 3 years so best to shutup and perform instead of speaking out.

@wiski I went once way back in college, that was like 38 years ago....during curiosity years.

@RandomScrub @peterbleafs He can tell his agent, Im taking the deal. Done.
4 days, 16 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Rookie tournament wraps up this aft
@RandomScrub Not interested in him. Too selfish and too high on himself.
@Burtonboy ??? Makes no sense. Leafs have to perform well, and earn fan support this year. That includes players, coaches and management. None of them have my support, but I am not thinking they should ditch anyone now. 10 games in it will be abundantly clear what each of these groups are made of.

@ingy56 Good man this Kekalainen, 100% support his position and logic.
@ingy56 There are just a handful of people yapping about how fantastic some young prospects are...so Cox again, is just putting filler in his twit feed.
@Jmessih +/- is a good indicator and it applies to Connor Brown as well. And in a way it is a compliment to Brown. We all know that Otter team was terrible so for Brown to get a high minus on that team at a young age indicates that he was already the best of the worst for the Otters. So Dubas, I think youre full of shit.
5 days, 11 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Loov returning to Sweden? Leafs invite Cal Heeter to camp?
Maybe one reason posts are really down and out is that our collective (the Borg in all of us) has come to the conclusion that this year is the same as last year and that we repeat ourselves every single year....the roster is full of retreads, our current flash in the pans and enough change to hype.....but really in my mind, I find nothing interesting in this upcoming season other than the enjoyment of watching hockey. This team has to earn my interest this year....I can feel a certain ..... f*** it
5 days, 12 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@Cameron19 @peterbleafs @Bring the Cup Home Its one reason the Leafs hire and fire GMs/ Coaches/ Assistant GMs...so they can always trot out the same promises every year and have a fall guy in place. I think (censored) is the next fall guy.
@Bring the Cup Home Now this is all true. This upcoming season is a transition year...Shanahans gimme so to speak...the year after we will start to see the new core really emerge...I think we will see a lot of changes come next summer.

@ProfessorRance @MaxwellHowe @dlb Mad @peterbleafs I knew my stupid laptop camera was active when I was in china...had my underwear hoisted over my stomach...now Ill never get invited to the cool site.
@Mcost61 @peterbleafs Like hell you were, Im a comment lobber, I dont have real info like most of you other guys.
This is shameful, I go away for a few hours, come back and the same comments are on the page....embarrassing post rate people!!!
@wiski @peterbleafs @ingy56 Totally, and big guys never recover from a bad back, they have 10 more vertebrae to worry about than us short guys.
5 days, 14 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@ingy56 Trade him
@dlb Mad @Yan28 The most tradeable guy the Leafs have is Lupul followed by Franson if he plays well. Do not see the Leafs trading anyone though either.
5 days, 16 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@dlb Mad @Yan28 As much as we all wonder about this prospect or that one. The Leafs have already set up their roster, there is no spot for Leivo or Nylander or any other young forward prospect with the moves they made. The only spot that is open is who gets to sit in the press box for that 7th D spot. This is why I was against many of the signings, as those are the guys who will play. Nothing has changed in Leafland really.
However when injuries hit, we are better off in terms of depth so guys like Leivo are pretty certain to get some games in at the NHL level this year.
@Jay_Berg If and only if he plays within his capabilities. If he overextends we are better off without him. This is a coaching issue.
5 days, 18 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@Yaknowwhat Waste of money
@mcloki @ingy56 Me too, if anything, he will rile the Leaf players up because none of them will want to be thought of as the quitter this season. I think we can each peg one to three Leafs that do not bring it when the chips are down.
@sniperstar @Belfour20/JB-45 I think day one of t he season should be amnesty day for all....bring em all back and give them second chances.
@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe If Reilly didnt make the jump last year, he would be considered a prospect, likely one of the top 5 in the entire NHL.
@newkb @peterbleafs Yes but would not spend money on a ticket to see this exercise.
6 days, 9 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@newkb @peterbleafs Maybe but most of those D I have never heard of so could care less.
I wanted to go to this game, but no one to go with :(. Now looking at the lineup I do not think Id go anyways, what a shitty looking lineup we are putting on the ice. Would never spend money on a ticket for that. this tournament must just be a means of looking at ECHL players, not potential NHL ones.
@Bring the Cup Home Those aren't ifs, they are expectations.
1 week, 2 days ago on Spencer Abbott signs one-year deal
@Jmessih blah blah blah blah blah....prove it Booth, and Lupul
@ Keon Both need a few years in the AHL then a few years in the NHL in order to develop...but if the Leafs leave them in the AHL they never become anything.
@barjv01 This lineup we put on the ice when the Leafs flight goes awry and lands in Nicaragua. Would actually be fun to see this group of upstarts against NHL teams. I bet the gap isnt as big as people think...especially if Rielly, Kadri and Gardiner missed the flight.
