Huge Fan of the leafs. Have been watching the games since my dad would sneak me out of bed to watch them play on a black and white tv in the basement.
@Dewy Keon Hogturd @GreekGod @Jeff_Mintz kontiola, santarelli, holland, komarov,Frattin,ashton will be a much better bottom 6 than what we ran last year and I hope that the minutes and scoring will be spread out more evenly down the line up. I understand if you prefered the mclaren mc clement orr line who were fan favorites for getting hemmed in there own zone and taking bad penalties and the raymond revolving center and kulemin line which never seemed to make much of an impact. I can't say the new additions will be a big upgrade on 3rd line but 4th line will be alot better. I realize raymond put up points but if we can replace his scoring with 5 goals from every new addition then we are better off.
1 day, 15 hours ago on Weekend Mashup: $2.2 million apart
Seems like everyone whines that we didn't get that stud centre or top pairing d man. But after a few weeks to reflect they get on board with the minor moves made, and that maybe we will see some of the kids impress this year. Lets hope these guys produce and help erase that "easiest team in the league to play against" association the league has with the TML !
@Bruffins @TheCanucksnaphook @RandomScrub @CanuckUKinToronto Broll for sure as a 4th or 3rd line engery guy devane is a maybe depends if randy wants a pure enforcer

@Dewy Keon Hogturd @DeclanK I dont think it had the salary before
@leafmealone @barjv01 Nailed it!
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Troy Bodie re-signed to one-year deal by the Maple Leafs
@Bruce Gamble I have a feeling that because Shanny came into the organization close to draft he is letting nonis carry out business as usual and next year ( hopefully) he will be the guy making these decisions.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Maple Leafs Trade Carl Gunnarsson, 4th round pick for Roman Polak
For a long time i have been reading all these comments about nonis vs burke and who is better but DAMIT NONIS! I think he just solved the argument for you guys. I really hope one of the marlies is coming up to fill that open spot on the roster or else there just wont be any silver lining to this trade.
@peterbleafs no. from scouting reports seems like we just got a slightly better version of tim gleason
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Maple Leafs select Rinat Valiev 68th overall

@TroyTech If you have google chrome get the app called stealthy for it. You log in to gamecenter choose a game other than the local one. Turn on stealthy and while its on click the game you want to watch. ONce the game starts playing it will be choppy. Turn off stealthy and it will work perfect . Stealthy is an app that makes game center think you live somewhere else in the world not sure where but i use it with game center to watch all the local leafs games since i dont have leafs tv. I know this is a process but it works , Hope you find this usefull

@Mind Bomb @Jeff_Mintz @skiingallday sure hope so
@Mind Bomb @skiingallday except for parros
@ingy56 @rustynail yeah two trades with the rangers and a few free agents later they are looking dangerous
@Dink @burroz i think he is just most suited for a bottom six role and possibly ready
@burroz does ranger have a contract? i wasnt aware he did?
So what do you guys think? is tj our 7th defenceman or is he better than that?
@rustynail @MaxwellHowe @Jeff_Mintz The other guy i was wondering about was mark fraser. any word on him?
does anyone know if frazer mclaren got an extension today?
Going to miss Grabo. Too bad he had such a hefty contract. Im sure he will land on his feet
1 year ago on <!--:en-->Audio: Grabovski rips Carlyle<!--:-->
@reversethecurse67 I dont think you can say that ashton can compete with frattin. Frattin is clearly the better player. Spot on as far as the rest of the comment goes! Lets hope we see a new winger and Defender enter the fold

@Komas Taberle @canuckintheuk I am hoping out of those 3 leivo ends up being a good 2nd line winger
@playoff nut i just checked cap geek he is still on san jose for another year at 7 mil
@playoff nut @LN-093 @Jeff_Mintz Having big joe would be unreal. I havent looked at his contract or heard any rumors about him. Is he available?
@LN-093 @mcloki @Pent_House @canuckintheuk can you elaborate? my curiosity has been peaked
@LN-093 @Jeff_Mintz @playoff nut I think so too! hes got the scoring touch and offensive awareness down already!
@playoff nut @Jeff_Mintz haha heres hoping
@playoff nut So we draft one?
@Greg Fenton @Pent_House Your saying we as fans get high on a player when they have a few good games? Thats what im reading. And i think the counter argument being made is that we are all avid leafs fans and that if you have been following these young players its not a game or two or wjc where they played well thats got us all talking its that they are developing well and are due to challenge for a roster spot.
@wiski @.JVR. @Jeff_Mintz very true, and i think through the course of a full season thats exactly what we will see
@Pent_House @Greg Fenton I agree. I also think he mainly failed in the NHL this past season because carlye put him on a pairing with dion when he should have been on the third d pairing
@Greg Fenton @.JVR. @Pent_House Greg nobody is saying colborne is going to be the top center but if bozak doesn't come back is it crazy to see him as the 3rd or 4th line center? I dont think so
@.JVR. @Pent_House could we call up mckegg?
@Dink terrible Idea
@Bester @Mind Bomb I think people on tablets and phones don't always get to see the videos because of broken links or something. So they just post anything relevant to the articel
I give Kostka a 6/10 for his play early in the season and a 7.5/10 once he was put on the third pairing where I didn't notice him which I consider to be a good thing. He had decent composure with the puck on the bottom pairing but his skating was sub par. He seems to have a scoring touch at the AHL level but at the NHL level the extra time and space he needed to succeed isn't there. I wouldn't want to see him as anything more than an AHL vet helping the young guys and a depth call up if needed. Thoughts?
@Mind Bomb @Burtonboy Sounds like we upped the offer! Two days ago he was saying goodbye now he won't comment
I give Komarov 7.5/10 good skater, was very physical but didn't quite have the scoring touch I thought we might see. Still going to be hard to replace
1 year, 1 month ago on <!--:en-->2012-13 Player Review: Leo Komarov<!--:-->
@Burtonboy @Dangle_My_Berries Even if he is playing there for the money and to be close to family. Can't fault him for that
1 year, 1 month ago on <!--:en-->Scattered Thoughts: Eakins, Marlies, Komarov, Lessons from Boston<!--:-->
@Burtonboy Gonna miss having him on the team. Is brad ross ready?
@Cameron19 @Jeff_Mintz But to answer your question i would say worth it if we are trading pieces like liles or grabo, gunnar etc
@Cameron19 @Jeff_Mintz I guess that depends on how close you think the leafs are to being a cup contender?
@Dangle_My_Berries @Xxxxxnew Hope your right seems like he has some talent
This article makes me feel a lot more comfortable about losing Eakins. I really hope Eakins doesn't take any of our UFA's with him. I don't really see the Leafs moving up in the draft since there seems to be lots of good prospects to go around. What do you guys realistically think?
