@Dogger Well i think the islanders are a good trade partner for Kessel but I think they would rather give away dal colle then strome. We should know next month though when we see how they do in the playoffs

Literally out of nowhere I just realized the Leafs lost 7 straight lol, man this is fun

@BoneChompski @HHT @Hollandaise  @Jordan29 yup thats how i think. Also if you keep JVR and bring Nylander up, draft strome, and still have possible surprises like Brown or otheres, theres a more glaring need on defense. Not that we want to start winning, but i dont want to go full Edmonton here

@Hollandaise  @Jordan29 Nothing Phaneuf does is his problem though. He give you effort every night and gives you more then the other 22 guys on the roster consistently. Just because his play is not good enough sometimes is not his fault, thats nonis

@LoovTrain @In it to Winnik Not different then us wanting Strome right now. Hanifin could easily be the better player, but we all know we were chasing a #1 centre for the last 10 years and have zero in the system. Their fans could easily be as scared we will take Hanifin at #3 if we passed them because they have been chasing a #1 dman for the last 10 year and already have their #1-2 centres, and we just drafted rielly. Think of it that way. Helps me sleep at night lol

I didnt have time to stop in yesterday, but please dont tell me this site (like many others) is full of a bunch of unrealistic leaf fans who wanted the core blown up immediately without reason and are mad now that we have to wait a couple more months for action? 

Leaf fans - "We can handle a rebuild but the media cant"

2 months pass

Leaf fans - "FUCK THIS MANAGEMENT WE ARE SCREWED, THEY ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING, WAHHH"

Looks like Lupul is the next captain. Really rallied the guys. Obviously no team wants to chance his injuries so I'm fine with him staying. Winnik has to go though. Can't rebuild without ammo

@MaxwellHowe @Jordan29 But the fact we will take back salary (could be a complete garbage player I dont care, makes us worse is excellent) so thats a huge benefit 

1 month, 1 week ago on The Leafs shouldn’t retain a dollar of Phil Kessel’s contract

Bottom line is because Kessel plays in Toronto, he is gonna be way over analyzed. If its a good situation its deemed an amazing one, if its bad its deemed a disaster. Kessel is what he is and that a top line goal scorer. Nothing more nothing less. You want to know who wants top line goal scorers in the summer when the cap is there? EVERYONE. The market will be there, but a market for a high return may take more time.

Its hilarious, ROR is apparently not worth enough because "he doesnt have term and could leave". But now Kessel guaranteed for 7 more years is "too much term"? Someone has to figure this logic out because its over my head.

Subban 9 mil

Lundqvist 8.5 mil

Nash 7.8 mil

These guys are not the teams best player and they still win with them. The market is there

Also IMO we are done for at least 4 years. Retain all you want on 4-5 year deals for value. But nothing longer

Good thinking. I'm the same way. Not a dollar. Someone paid Stastny 7, people will pay kessel 8. Jesus, Subban is at 9

Well guys, Im actually calm and happy to be a leafs fans right now. Its so bad on the outside looking in, but once you really look at it, this is just a normal rebuild, like the other teams have gone through, and the only difference is we have some younger assets that might get us a serious return. 

As long as the do it this summer, you can look back and figure they started out in 2012. Rielly, Gauthier, Nylander, and now Hopefully Strome or better. All these players dont have to be Toews, Crosby, or Jesus. They just have to be able to fill a contending roster int he future. Because if they are not true #1 line players then we will just continue to bottom out and eventually get one. 

I think now with seeing everything and thinkig about it, Shanahan knows what hes gonna do, and knew in the summer. I think when he tried to sign guys like Bolland, it was to be leaders to the young players and not to try and win. Kessel and Phaneuf are both gone this summer, its delusional to think any different IMO. 

So thinking about us rebuilding

PROS

-Clarkson, Robidas or any bad deal is now a mute point. This team does not need cap space for the next 3-6 years because they will not be good enough to win anyways. So we can all stop wanting to drop these players, only to just turn around and waste the cap space saved on another player to untank us.

-Burke picked Rielly. This guy looks like he is a 1-2 Dman, and going to be a leader.

-Even our younger core still has a chance to turn it around, and we have all the time to give them. (Kadri, Gardiner, Holland)

-I dont see Shanahan trading picks like its candy like Nonis did.

-We have a top line player like Kessel in his prime ready to get a good return.

-Multiple UFAs people will want like Winnik, Santorelli, and Franson


CONS

-By the looks of it, 50% of fans are already proving they cannot take a rebuild, because they are bitching like little babies about this team tanking. Its like they dont understand how good this is for the team

-Bernier, hes gotta go. I like the guy but I just dont see him beingbad enough to tank with, or good enough to keep. I might be wrong, but I think the return we get from him is better then keeping him

-Nonis doesnt have a 2nd round pick this year.......like seriously this has to be the last time hes screws us here. I dont even care if I myself didnt see this as a bad move in past years, I dont get paid to make these decisions, he does (surprisingly). He has to go

-The media bashing right now is killing whatever return the players available had to a point

------------

Honestly, go back and check out how LA was doing 6-10 years ago. They were trading for guys like Ryan Smith at 6-7 mil. Icing guys like Frolov who didnt give two shits, signing guys like L Nagy and Kyle Calder, and getting plugs like Preissing and a whole bunch of hellish hockey players. But they ended up tanking and getting guys like Kopitar, Doughty, and drafting well with Bernier, Quick, and the 5-10 other 2nd round or later goos players they got. 

We need to just chill out and accept this rebuild no matter how long it takes and trust their scouting and management. Its new guys and they need a shot

I know we are not playing well right now but I think everyone is overrating about the leafs. Nobody ever talks about the shit other teams have either. Look at the Canes we are playing right now for instance 

Really though, the team we are playing is more of a joke then we are when you think of it. They pay a goalie 7 mil a year who they couldnt trade for a 7th round pick this summer. They pay Staal 8.25 mil and hes under producing. They traded Their former 1st round decent player Sutter, an 11th over all pick, and a really good prospect for Staal who is about a .5 ppg player with them or less and they signed him to a 60 million dollar contract. They signed Semin who is a healthy scratch to a 35 million dollar deal at 7 mil cap hit and they couldnt give him away for free. Then they continually played Skinner too soon after concussions and its pretty much killed his career. 
Now they are sarting to win their way out of mcdavid
Think about that

I know we all say this many times but this is truly it. I have NEVER been more embarrassed to be a leaf fan in my life. NEVER. I dont even want to be a fan anymore, its pointless. We get shafted over and over again. Its insane. Look at this roster. Clarkson at 5.25, phaneuf at 7, Kessel at 8, Gardiner at 4+? Jesus this is just such a disaster I cant believe its real. I honestly cant believe this is happening to us fans who are so dedicated to watching and cheering for them. 

Possibly the worst part of this situation is that we maybe have an even bigger idiot in charge now with Shanahan. Imagine if he got his way and we signed Bolland instead of Santorelli and Winnik? Traded Franson for Gorges? We are led by the fucking blind guys, this is only going to get worse. Get ready for a disaster ending

I dont even know how we see another game without making serious moves. Theres got to be a trade for Kessel and Phaneuf somewhere out there. Anything. The worse the return, the better chance at bottoming out I guess.

God I hate this team. God I hate this organization. God I hate this company. God I hate this sport

Leafs are the most fragile team I even seen in my life. They look like an AHL team for a week and then once they score tonight its like "Oh ya guys, we can fucking do this remember!" Then immediately are a new team
