Aren't people reading too much into the "7th" dman? Just because we carry 7 dmen doesn't mean we will actually play 7 dmen. 7th guy could just be a healthy scratch or rotate in.

Honestly if they were smart that'd be a solid move. He's clearly declining but still worth a ton to a contender. It'd fix there cap issues too
I think winning cures all. We suck and therefore the captain is the whipping boy

Nobody said it was the only factor in success. But it is a factor
I think I provided a pretty fair assessment but you predictably get upset if anyone critiques him in any way. I gave him credit above for being the only good choice on the roster but left it by saying that doesn't mean there couldn't be improvement. Boo hoo
I think a lot of people here are taking your position because realistically Dion doesn't show a lot of the things we want In a captain. If we had a guy like Toews or Backes or someone who is a great captain we would all be saying how important it is.
See Gionta, Brian
Sure but you know it'll never work that way
I meant regarding captaincy. We have nobody else
Realistically if Dion left we would be in the same boat if not worse off
Just saying regardless he's constantly discussed and brought up

I'll never understand why Burke is brought up on here on a daily basis
Just watched the game.
Gotta say I was very impressed with Nylander's skill and vision. However, he clearly needs to get physically stronger and his play away from the puck needs a lot of work (circles around a lot instead of stops and starts, floating, etc). Would be great to see him dominate at the world juniors.
Leivo looks nhl ready. Finn can't skate. Verhaege needs to work on foot speed as well. Broll looks like he could contribute right now in a 4th line role. Biggs was finishing his checks well but dude is allergic to the puck. Loov was impressive.

Why did he get banned?
3 days ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp

Man if Nylander is the real deal our forward lines could be extremely deep next year. We may not have great centres but we could have very good overall depth.
Lupul. Bozak. Kessel
JVR. Kadri. Nylander
Koma. Holland. Clarkson.
Booth. Santa. Frattin.
No pluggers there at all
1 week, 6 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: September!
Kontiola might suck seeing how every time we sign a European UFA...they suck
I have an 8 week old son at home
Advice: sleep as much as you possibly can and get as many in with the wife as possible. I cannot stress that enough lol

Is he in rookie tourney or staying in Europe?
I'd take spezza as a #2 centre any day of the week
Like... I don't even....
Seguin / Benn / Nichushkin
That lines sounds unstoppable to be honest....
After half there team got injured. Just making the team would be an accomplishment. He's never been an nhl regular
Career minor leaguer becomes #1 centre..... And so it begins
They gave up on him regardless. If he's really a 6'3, 220 pound monster who skates like the wind you don't give up on a player like that right ;)

No idea. I'm not high on Ashton. If everyone we signed plays as advertised I just don't see how he makes the team. Everyone forgets Tampa essentially dumped him. No question he tries hard but he has hands of stone.
You are way over exaggerating Ashton's speed
Why are people still obsessed with Burke? It's not happening so who cares. Might as well discuss Crosby playing with Kessel while you are at it
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Friday Mashup: Leiweke not long for Toronto
Anyone else think there is a lot of sexual tension between Cam and Fenton....?
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Analytics, Analytics… Nothing but Analytics
And people used to complain about all analytics talk....Lieweke/ownership drama talk is the fuckin worst.
Bring on real hockey. Fuck
I'm just saying it'd be nice to have some actual positive results. Not just "hope"
Cubs are a good call.
Like how we are going into every season? So tiring
I'm not taking about lieweke. How about 1 playoff appearance in 10 years and massive cup drought? Yet still sell out every game
No results. All just good "in theory"
Not even close
The clippers that were in the western finals last season?
Give me another example then. Name a team
What team makes more money, has a bigger fan base and accomplishes less?
Serious question: are the leafs the biggest train wreck in all of North American professional sports?
I can't think of a worse situation....
It'd be awesome if there was actually something positive in leafland. This shitshow just keeps rolling along.
If bozak was American would he have made Team USA to play with Kessel and JVR?
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Second Assistant GM Hire to Come Next Week
I don't think sharp is amazing it's just silly to compare bozak to an all-star/team Canada alumni that bozak will obviously never become
Why stop at Sharp? I think Bozak is the next Marty St.Louis!
I'm not even going to bother with this. Ridiculous
Highlights? Cool let's sign Robby Shremp then we will have someone even better
Alright so next time Team Canada is constructed lets just tell them to click "sort by points" on NHL.com and just roll it out. Clearly only stats tell the story
Just because he plays a harder role doesn't mean anything. That's because our team has been garbage and there is nobody else. He's playing OUT of role.
I like bozak. I want him on this team. But he's a top 3C, good 2C, bad 1C. That's not going to change.
