Huge Fan of the leafs. Have been watching the games since my dad would sneak me out of bed to watch them play on the black and white tv in the basement.
Great Read! Always enjoy the notes on players, and the 5 things I think I'd do segment is awesome!!

@Hmmm He was prob mad that he had an 8 second shift, and whats the point in noticing opposing teams tendencies when you never get on the ice to face them? On the flip side maybe if he was doing the things you mentioned he would get more ice time!

@Mitch92 @FRyan More like 3rd pairing d men
2 days, 7 hours ago on Saturday Mashup: Round Two, Hopefully Better than Round One
@Burtonboy Why cant we just play ashton instead of pannik damnit!!
@Great Dane This trade is crazy edmonton has been with out a top 4 d man for years so they aren't going to be shipping out their best d man in exchange for phaneuf that would be a lateral move. Reimer would be an improvement to their goaltending but again sending us scrivens for reimer isnt a huge upgrade. What about franson + matt finn for one of their top 6 forwards? That feels like a more realistic trade to me

Im interested to see what the 4th line can do.
1 week, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #2, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., CBC)
So franson out of line up?
@Mitch_S2 @Jeff_Mintz @Cameron19 ok good! Not a huge ashton guy but he has never been given a chance on a line with semi skilled players and I would be disappointed to see a ppg player in ahl get snatched up by another team. At least give him ten games and 10 min a night before they ship him out! just my opinion.

@Mitch_S2 @Cameron19 Mitch did we lose ashton or is this just a if we lose him on waivers convo?
@Mitch92 @Cosmos1973 @mike_84 I dont think you can fault remier both goals were tipped. The second one reimer was in position. or he never would have stopped the intial tip on net.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on GDT: Preseason Game #8, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7:30 p.m., LeafsTV)
@TheLoovTrain @ingy56 Well it seems a foregone conclusion that he is going back to europe since he can't play in the ahl and we have holzer/Granberg/Percy ahead of him in the depth chart. Prob give him one last game then back to Europe

@BrandonCheema @Jeff_Mintz Yeah I hear ya. I think he would be great on a energy/cycle and grind line
@BrandonCheema He broke his orbital bone will be ready for first game of season, surgery not needed
@whalz @Burtonboy I Like this lineup!! Frattin has looked good so far
@Jmessih let him build some chemistry with the marlies players like leivo and brown and get used to the speed of game and size of the ice. MARLIES!
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@Alabama Maple Leaf Kadri with some nice moves in tight around the net to score. Nylander looks like he doesn't know what to do in the neutral zone sometimes but he is moving fast tonight and we have seen a few flashes of his skill!

@dlb Mad @MaxwellHowe I think Loov is great but, i just can't see him making those open ice hits on NHL Vets they dont play with their heads down like the rookies. Also noticed he got caught out of position a few time and that will prob be more so as he faces real NHL talent. thoughts?

2 months, 3 weeks ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@Greg Fenton What I took away from that phrase and the article was that he believes toughness and size are components in winning. Basically that you can't win with a soft. Lucky for us Greg this guy is all about the analytics so if these big tough guys don't bring something tangible to the team they won't be on it. He can't be hailed as an analytics guru and then plug the team full of 7 foot 4th liners haha

@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.
3 months 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

3 months, 2 weeks 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.

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
