So why are some junior players not allowed to play minor pro? Is that an NHL rule or is it an agreement between the NHL and the CHL? If it's an agreement is it a contract thing that expires eventually and have to be renewed? It needs to be fixed to allow those younger players too good for junior but not ready for the NHL to play in minor pro.

@CanuckUKinToronto @Tommy Cat With MLSE resources they should invest in more euro scouts. I know sometimes less is said to be more but have a web reporting to Bergman.

@CanuckUKinToronto From some of these Euro players taken in the mid to late rounds Bergman certainly seems to have a good handle on hockey over there.
Oh ... and Bob too.

I respectfully suggest that you open a separate tab called "Phook's Petition" so that all followers and posters on this wonderful site can express our desire to have our wayward green friend reinstated. None of use are perfect. Maybe not all as political incorrect as Mr. Canuckslaphook but we have one thing in common. We have all had our hearts broken by the Toronto Maple Leafs. Our pal Phook has done his part to heal us. Made our hearts swell to twice ... nay ten times the size of the little blackened prunes that our team has left us. Enough is enough. #freephook

@Leafs_17 @Tommy Cat @Burtonboy They should just go follow the habs.

@Burtonboy @Leafs_17 What Leaf fan would ever open up or read another of this fucking clown's articles ever again.
@MaxwellHowe @loomx @Bring the Cup Home Good to get more depth bottom six but the top six got to play better defensively too.

@Top Jimmy I still remember the day he was drafted.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @ingy56 @Bring the Cup Home And Leo brings it with the shoulder and not just the mouth.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @ingy56 @Top Jimmy We were all pining for the old Clark. He brought pride to the blue and white in some lean years. Always will be one of my all time favorites.
@Top Jimmy Guy deserves to be there even if he don't want to be.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Top Jimmy Same here. Lots of non playoff years is all I remember.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih My old #16 Olczyk with the ironed on decals was way cool. Whatever happened to that I wonder.
@mike_84 @Jmessih Maybe the pole vault?
6 days, 22 hours ago on Spencer Abbott signs one-year deal
@mike_84 Yeah. I loved the heavy weights but its like the Elves sailing away from Middle Earth. Their time is come.
@peterbleafs @Jmessih Hahaha know what you mean. Every year you hear this sorta stuff. Do the talking on the ice. Then again I guess all the Leaf players have mikes stuck in their faces. They aren't going to say, "I think this year I'm gonna suck"
@Loric76 @Jmessih Yeah. Team D though. Forwards gotta be doing their part too.
@Jmessih Hope his head is ok. Well, as good as it gets for him.
@MaxwellHowe @Tommy Cat thanks ... never know
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @ingy56 If they go Swede go Salming.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Tommy Cat You should ask him over for chinky chicken the next HNIC the Leafs are playing.
@Jmessih @Loric76 Goalies must really hate the shootout.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan That's pretty cool.
@ingy56 @Tommy Cat One the ice and in the pocketbook.
@Komas Taberle @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Cameron19 @Loric76 Better he gets more time. The Leafs have ruined enough players by rushing them. D seems to be their specialty.
@ingy56 They should be already ashamed of themselves.
Know anyone looking for a building lot Max?
This site has really been missing something the last few days.
@Mcost61 @Doorman Hahaha classic!!!!

@Loric76 @Tommy Cat Lets hope he picks the right hands like Ashton did!!
Find myself hoping Kontiola does good after buying out his own KHL contract. Obviously playing in the NHL means a lot to him. Hope he does well and sticks. Competition should be will be fierce in camp this year.
@Loric76 @Tommy Cat You're probably right on there.
1 week, 2 days ago on Dave Nonis on TSN Radio
@Loric76 Yeah. I guess with a one on one radio interview he had to get into it a bit.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @ingy56 @alex callis I always thought it was Warren Beatty. Heard that on the radio on time I think.
@Loric76 @Tommy Cat @wiski You would think "Every one needs to play better" would've got the job done if it was a direct question. I never heard the interview either.
1 week, 2 days ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@wiski @Loric76 Yeah, you would think they would just let it be. Talking about it is like throwing chum into the water. The media be lapping that stuff up.
@Mcost61 @Tommy Cat Apparently so. No one is safe.
@NinetyThree @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Burtonboy @Tommy Cat @mike_84 They'll do whatever it takes. That's the kid of player I want.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Expansion Talk
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Tommy Cat @mike_84 Maybe pouring a bucket of ice water over your head would help?
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Tommy Cat @mike_84 That's what I mean. They won't trade any of those UFA guys they signed to the one year contracts, except maybe at the deadline. So if someone goes I think it could be Ashton. He had a great camp last year however and I don't think he got much of an opportunity after that to play.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @mike_84 So many forwards and I can't see them trading someone they just picked up.
@maple1967leafs @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Best one I've seen by far! I thought at first you were going to do it with beer.
The Leafs biggest deterrents to recent success has always been ownership / management and a massive fan base that will continually fill the seats etc regardless of the on ice product. This looks to be more of the same. Our only hope is that the suits leave Shanny alone enough to effectively manage and build the actual team.

Really good stuff. Seriously. Both the actual interview and the following analysis.
Didn't B.S. say the swarm was dead? Maybe that was BS. But in any event he should be forming the general direction for the club and its up to the coaches to coach. If you don't like it fire them. Don't meddle.

Hopefully those one year UFA contracts were done to ensure that our young talent like Gauthier are allowed to slow cook the way they should be.
