Agreed. If 2
We keep the current core we're going to need very strong defensive forwards.

I doubt it, but can't hurt to have him with the pros for a bit.
Considering Freddy was playing midget just 2 years ago, not bad. Big guys are often slower to develop anyway. Much more to being a good player than just points anyway.
Where's Cox going?

Are the SHL and SEL the same thing?

Maybe the first time I have ever agreed with anything Stock said.
This Palat kid kills penalties too. Good young player.

@MaxwellHowe I like to think he has a vision he will evaluate each player against, but who knows?

@Cloud09 Good post.
@ingy56 @Mattmark Good point, ingy. Some pretty wise hockey folk seem to like him more than many fans or msm.

@Jordan29 @Mattmark @ingy56 I was hoping to see Kadri play with someone like Eberle or Hall. Good for him though.
@Zep2 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs Agreed, but just once can't we have a Monahan/Jenner who is just so good at camp that he has to stay. It's been a long time.

@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @WendelGilmour I agree with all that. I'm hoping Shanny's vision is sorta a hybrid tough aggressive game like his, with some of the Detroit high level skill mixed in.
We do need to establish an identity and stick with it for a few years.
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @WendelGilmour No doubt there have been mistakes, hopefully Shanny will have a vision that works.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour I'm hoping that's the case.
@CanuckUKinToronto @WendelGilmour I'm hoping Shanny shares our opinion of RC, and in that case you are right, but if he doesn't he may want to make some tweeks and see what RC can do after the changes. Not saying that's what I want.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour I was saying same to my wife yesterday, we just can't seem to get something go surprisingly well. It just doesn't happen for Leafs fans.

122 hits in the first SJ - LA game. The winner of that series is going to be in tough in the next series. They will be hurting after this one.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour That's what stood out to me too. Relentless and very aggressive. I enjoyed watching them.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @WendelGilmour Based on last night's performance I think they have a real shot at taking Pitt out.
I'm not so pissed about the Leafs losing to CBJ anymore. Good young team. Jenner, Johansen are really good young players, amongst others. They could be good for a long time.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Typical Simmons.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan
He also implies Kadri appearing on HNIC is a sign of Blue & White disease.
Simmons today, but also a few other MSM, primarily radio.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @WendelGilmour
Simmons this morning. Take it for what it's worth, but I've heard it from a few now.
Morning boys. More rumblings Nonis wants to keep Carlyle. Not good.
@~Keon @Xxxxxnew Yeah, has been for years.

I agree RC is a problem, but I don't buy he is the biggest problem. This team simply has too many who do the easy things well and refuse to do the hard things. RC has said many times they need to improve their forecheck, and most of the current guys just refuse to take the body and just fly-by.
@Cameron19 @ShiftyD @WendelGilmour @Belfour20/JB-45 @Bruffins @Loric76 The system had nothing to do with players being unwilling to the basic hard things you need to do. Doesn't excuse fly-bys, refusal to make conbtact, get in a shooting lane, backcheck, etc. Players own all these things.
@Cameron19 @ShiftyD @WendelGilmour @Belfour20/JB-45 @Bruffins @Loric76
Yeah, that's true, but the core players would have to fit the mold. If the exception puts them over the top then they may go for it.
@Belfour20/JB-45 @WendelGilmour @Bruffins @Cameron19 @Loric76
I'm hoping Shanny and Nonis are on the same page.
@ShiftyD @WendelGilmour @Belfour20/JB-45 @Bruffins @Cameron19 @Loric76
Exactly, then build towards it.
@Belfour20/JB-45 @Bruffins @Cameron19 @Loric76
Management should, as a group decide what type of style/player they want and act accordingly. Boston, being an example. If they don't see a player fitting that mold they move on.

I believe so.
hahaha, didn't know that.
LOL, why? You can see his runners with a suit.
Nice shoes, Elliotte.
@Burtonboy @ShiftyD @Belfour20/JB-45
Kipper I think.

Yeah, that too.
@Bruffins @loomx @wendelsfist @ShiftyD
Well for all the people shooting at Phaneuf, pretty clear by what Naz said that he did take the lead.
Oh yeah. Indirect at RC?
He was beside Healey, should have punched him in the face. He did laugh at PJ though.
