That was brutal for sure

Subban dominates the ice more then anyone in the league when he's at his best. People talk about Subban and Karlsson like they are liabilities. For every 1 bad play they make 10 good/amazing plays.
Subban also spends most of his offseason doing charity work. He's a class act

Doughty, Getzlaf, Subban
13 hours, 40 minutes ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
Anyone know of any trades that have gone down in August in recent history? Is there any chance we move Franson and/or Reimer or do August trades virtually never happen?
13 hours, 43 minutes ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
Right. They have Prust, we have clarkson. Moen is comparable to bodie. Not seeing how our lineup is soft especially with the additions we have made. We will be a harder team to play against then last year no doubt.

The time of the heavy weight is dead. Clowe had 7 goals and 33 pims last year. He's washed up.
Engelland is purely awful. One of the worst contracts in Ufa history because he's barely an nhl dman let alone worthy of a multi year contract.
You need team toughness. The guys bb pointed out are not soft. What heavyweight do the hawks have? Habs are soft as butter but are far more successful then we are.

Really? Didn't know that. I've never been a big Ashton fan but he had a great camp and was dominant in the AHL and still couldn't get in the lineup for more then 5 mins a game on the 4th line. Carlyle is a moron
1 day, 23 hours ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
I could see Ashton being dealt too. Carlyle doesn't seem to be a fan for whatever reason
People keep putting frattin with them and it's driving me nuts. Frattin will be lucky to be on the 4th line.
I think Santa would be a great fit. Kadri often lacked jump last season and Santa is a ball of fire. Might be the spark plug to help get Kadri going on some nights.
Well the Habs dicked around with PK and it back fired. Not saying Gardiner is going to win a Norris but he's going to get even more ice time next year and increased responsibility. Would be a smart move to sign him now before he breaks out

I don't recall the last time the leafs immediately committed to a young player long term (no bridge deal). Will be interesting to see if they decide to do that with gardiner. I think it would be a wise gamble.
2 days, 20 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
An entire thread about an AHL dman....we need hockey to start pretty badly....
One playoff appearance in a lockout shortened season. Mission accomplished. Leaf fans love defending mediocrity because we are used to so much failure. any type of success gets glorified.
2 days, 22 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Over Percy and Granberg? Nope
If he's playing for the leafs at all this season that's a sign that things have gone horribly wrong
Holzer is awful
Well they are different situations but they do have a similar theme.
At the end of the day it comes back to one of my biggest criticisms of Burke in that he was too opinionated and left himself way too vulnerable to criticism.
2 days, 23 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
It is and it isn't. Burkes point if I recall is that the contract would inflate the market. Doesn't the contract his club gave to a 6-7 plug of a dman do the same thing?
Right. Now he's on the other end of the spectrum and all the sudden it's ok.
Isn't that why Edmonton signed penner to an inflated contract? Kinda hypocritical....
Sure I'm not saying he's a moron. He did some good things. But people trend to talk about him like he was a genius.
So you Burke lovers out there still think we would be better off with him?
Calgary just gave Engelland one of the worst contracts in recent history. "Big and tough". Burke isn't a fan of the analytic models out there.
Shanny signing guys who can compete in all aspects and at low costs. Drafting skill. Putting an emphasis on analytics. We are finally trying to get ahead of the curve instead of always playing catch up.
Remember when Burke wanted a top 6 bottom 6 team? Then realized he needed a top 9 bottom 3? Always a few steps behind....
Sorry. I haven't slept in 3 weeks I'm losing it lol
5 days, 13 hours ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
Water is wet
Hook us up with a number one centre and then I'll really be impressed
And again if the team wasn't always an embarrassment then maybe there would be more positive reporting. Not defending the media but just saying
I'm just saying your comments make it seem like the media has somehow effected our on ice success. The two aren't related
Man you have this obsession with the media. I know the media is brutal in this market but the reality is that it's not the media's fault this franchise is a massive failure.
Losing = negativity.
How about we just draft well for a change
If only we fired Carlyle. Would have been an amazing offseason
Yup he's got issues between the ears
I don't have much faith in frattin and this chemistry people talk about between those two is exaggerated
Pretty much lol
I don't think we will have "3rd and 4th lines" per say. More like two 3rd lines
JVR. - bozak. - kessel
Lupul - Kadri - kontiola
Koma - holland - clarkson
Booth - Santa - frattin
Very solid depth. Biggest problem is number 1 centre. Outside of that not too shabby
Clifford had 8 fucking points last year. I'm no Franson fan but c'mon that's a joke of a trade
5 days, 15 hours ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
I think we have enough gritty bottom 6 forwards at this point. Clifford seems redundant
If KC makes the playoffs this season the jays are officially the biggest joke in mlb.
Had the raptors tanked last season like they were trying to they would be one of the biggest ongoing failures in the nba.
Leafs have been a disgrace for a solid decade.
Toronto sports man.....
6 days, 14 hours ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
Mine was a joke. I feel you are being serious...
1 week ago on Weekend Mashup: $2.2 million apart
Alright we are set then
IMO our Dcore is still dangerously thin. One injury to a top 4 dman and we are in big trouble
He's a PP specialist. That's it
Guy cannot skate
Seems we really want Franson gone. Gorges can play top 4. Franson cannot
I think his contract is buyout proof in terms of cap hit
Gorges is better then Franson
Carlyle just got hard
Those teams know how to play defensive hockey. We are a defensive train wreck setting shots against records
Those guys barely have AHL experience. If Bernier gets injured we won't win a game
