1 day, 9 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
Yeah great isnt it. So next year will be lots of resignings or getting in other 1mill 1 year has beens or other team throwaways and the neccessity of bringing in a No1 C and No1 D will be forgotten for another 12 months
Im not a fan of Evander Kanes attitude BUT for hockey player and hockey play Id do that in a heartbeat.
1 day, 12 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
bridging contract really. So with impotent Nonis at the healm next
summer we will see Franson walk as Nonis is incapable of a trade,
Santorelli, Kontiola, Booth, Orr, Ashton, Kadri, Bodie, Smith, Franson,
Bernier, Granberg, Holzer, Ross, McClaren, McKegg, Carrick all up for
some sort of contract renewal.
Hopefully all those deals going
will show that Nonis is working hard and keep the fans happy with
resigning to great contracts. Giving them a little bit of good news
every week throughout the summer. Just enough to keep them dumbed down
so they forget the fact that OH YEAH. No1 C and 1st line D-man. Do we
still need them.
Same next summer then, resign the 1 year deals,
make another few splashes on free agency picking up has beens for 1
million per. Are we the Leafs or Nashville, are we the worlds biggest
hockey market or a hockey team in the middle of a scorching dessert
Rinse and Repeat

@Bring the Cup Home @Xxxxxnew
Hes an explosive athlete. Short bursts of extreme speed and agility. His large size actually helps with that. In the hockey world I cant picture a similar character but in the world of soccer you have Maradona, Romario, Hagi, Stoichkov. All of these players to name just a few were small in height comparison to their colleagues but of equal mass to their taller compatriots. They are square set. Strong and explosive. These are guys that can have consistancy issues, with it moods or sulks, but win a game or get a goal from nothing but their own industry - limitless. Sometimes when a coach has a problem breaking down an opposition this is the kind of guys you turn too.
Kessel is pure class and by far the best player weve had since the Sundin early years

5 days, 12 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
If its a hollow massively one sided victory then maybe.
If its a result of killing yes
Again a soldier with his feet on a fallen enemy taking a selfie is not humane behaviour.
@Mitch_S2 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafsMitch the celebration is NOT celebrating the dead of the animal. Its celebrating the harvest. Its thanking a god/a guardian angel for making them prosperous and keeping them alive.
As for a battle which involves nation v nation. The full ins and outs as in to why how and if a war takes place the normal people of this planet do not have all the facts at hand and are not qualified to make such decisions. Im not a conspiracy theorist that believes we are cleverer than the people we elect or the 100 000's that work and study life in the civil service. However in a war situation its often a case better to kill than be killed and those unfortunately slaughtered in the long run, keeps the body count down.
Good man I hate these gas fired grills, these people need stringing up
If making a kill a trophy and taking pleasure to the extent it doesnt ware off by the time you get a camera out and pose then I would be intolerant of that culture.
This now becomes a cultural clash.
Its my culture to stand up for what I believe in, anyone who doesnt like it can go F themselves.
Im not disputing that. Im disputing the selfie. Not the killing for food. Im disputing the showing off of a dead being as some sign of alpha-ism. I like goats, simple as. I donate alot of money to them. If it was a donkey or a horse others would get up in arms thats their business and no doubt such a discussion would spur me on. Not for the killing of meat for food, but some strange "look at me" attitude by out doing a wild animal, myopic in its outlook in life and easily fooled by a far superior race.
Cam respect that. All I know if I didnt want my picture being taken all youd see is a picture of my fist. Photo used in evidence in a court of law and the newspapers explaining the picture and how many stitches the photographer had sewing his asshole closed after a Nikon removal. I dont think Id smile.
@The_Polish_Cannon @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs 'Excellent point. My wife is also vegetarian but eats fish. I dont. I think with a picture of a fisherman holding up their "prize catch" you dont know if the fish is alive or dead. You dont know if he puts it back. For the smaller fish you are unaware if they have a conscience, meaning compassion, caring, they themselves knowing right from wrong. Are they robots like alot of insects or are they as friendly and loving as a family pet.
I cannot answer your question/statement any more satisfactory than that. I dont fish and never found it interesting but thats because I cant sit down for 10 minutes without needing to work.
So again if an Iraqi is killed and a US troop is standing over it, grinning from ear to ear, is he admiring his enemy and his kill. Is there the Rommel respect. No its tasteless and disrespectful. Th ekilling of the goat if for food is fine by me, its the celibrating of the kill that distinguishes, it seems, North Americans to the more war weary British. I dont see any delight in killing. Its terrible. And I would prefer a goat killed to 30 rabbits, less life for the same amount of flesh. But I just dont get the excitement in proving your manhood using technologies unavailable to your victim. Just kill it, disect it, portion it, freeze it, eat it. Just dont have that stupid "look at me, YEAH!" grin on your face. Thats tasteless, unlike the meat.
Not a great deal of difference in respect of the value of the life. As for eating bred animals for food then I agree with you. If people had to kill for themselves in order to eat Im sure we wouldnt have such throwaways in terms of meat. I used to work in a supermarket when at Uni and the meat section was the only section that made a loss or bare profit on good times. 1000 packet garlic sliced processed pork anus and 500 chucked away. And I agree those that hunt for food I have respect for. What I dont like is the killers selfie (ok this isnt a selfie by technical terms unless he had a tripod and timer) but it celebrates death as some kind of proof of alpha-ism.
@Mitch_S2 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Greg Fenton
I see the difference because the native does it for lack of alternative. He stands proud or maybe even solemn over his quarry. If a photo is taken of a native over his kill. Its often known to the photo taker and the native that its documenting a way of life, an act of survivle of a tribe of people. You dont see a native with a fekkin grin on their dumb faces ear to ear like a "look at me" "YYEEEAAHHH". It retarded and beta behaviour.
I respect that Mitch. Would you lend the same tolerance to a US trooper who stands over his Iraqi victim being the alpha. Big grin on his face.
Well Cam. It is David Booth like it is American troops that have Iraqi prisoners strung up on a cross with a car battery attached. Like a soldier standing over a corpse doing the thumbs up. Or the selfie at ground zero with a huge grin on their face. These people are idiots.
Now I realise there are those that like their food. I respect the eating of meat, We are omnivores. I even cook meat for my friends if we have a bbq. My dad was a chef and taught me how to cook properly and I respect all that that entails. What I dont like is trophy killing. Not so much head on the wall - who in their right mind would like that - but some morbid delight in killing game. The game has 4 legs and keeps to its environment. It doesnt have a rifle as defence, or night vision goggles. Nor is it able to set traps. But like the US and Britain going to war with laser guided bombs and drones flown from 2000+ miles a way. Its hardly surprising you can kill a primitive being. Like Booth, What is the big feeling. Hes a manlet and a retard. And I dislike the showing off of a death. Through necessity for survival or "politically" I can understand, but life is life and we are all somewhat blessed for it (Im not religious) to celibrate ending it is the end of humanity.
Opinionated, robust in defence in the things that I love. Militant no.
5 days, 13 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Gonna get a lot of dislikes for this but never trust a man without an opinion. Because he is the one who would sell his granny down the river for a handjob.
Fuck you Booth. I donate a shit ton of cash to several zoos and small village farms to preserve the goats that are there. I pay for food and get great delight at watching the little ones interact with an animal - often larger than themselves - and feel safe. Goats are what its all about.
Booth I hope your career comes to an abrupt end you degenerate worthless manlet that needs to kill large animals to somehow show that you are basically "not a manlet", Youre a bit part hockey player with a 3 year olds haircut and about as hard as a wet fart.
Ill cheer the day some thug enforcer decides to skate your hamstring.
P.S. Am vegetarian but not militant. Ex British army so know what it is to take life. I dont celebrate or feel proud of that matter and would never photograph myself for some ego trip.
Haters gunna hate.
So, Let me see.
The logic of bringing in a guy whos fluent in Corsi's is to do it AFTER we make our signings this year.

@Murph2417 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Cloud09
It is nowadays.
But originally mustard was sold as balls you could have in your pocket, pinch off a bit and reconstitute with the cider or ale you were drinking at the time.
There you go, learn something new every day.
Yeah but it wasnt Bozies year. I thought he dropped off a bit from the shortened season - saying that so did Kadri. The only thing there is you know what you get from Bozie, hes an 80% guy every game and his face offs are more often than not just tipping the .500. Kadri can be gold dust on occasions with an ok face off stat but more often than not a bit half hearted. I wouldnt want to go into a year with Kadri as the man to go up against the big centers of the NHL. He just doesnt cut the mustard.
Sorry guys I am such a handsome beast I was typing whilst looking up at my mirrored ceiling. I promise to be good next time ;)
Kessel - Bozak - JVR
Frattin - Kadri - Lupul
Clarkson - Santorelli - Booth
Komarov - Holland - Kontiola
Phanny - Robidas
Gardiner - Franson
Rielly - Polak
Thats how I see us going forward.
I see more time spread throughout the 4 forward lines maybe with the 4th line picking up 10 mins a night instead of the 3 with Orr and co. But there are so many players who are interchangeable these lines are drawn in the sand.
HOWEVER who is taking our face offs. Bozak yes but if he gets injured its game 7 v Boston the rest of the year.
There is a correct way to grab a childs dick whilst holding a knife ????

WTF is a capologist?
@mcloki @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @LeafsGuru
Its a shame that Calgary seem to have their 6 d-men sewn up. It would have been nice to reunite him with Burkie and they also have a good number of young centers in their system but all of similar ages.
I would consider Franson for Marcus Granlund the young finn. I think hes better than his brother and to build a line with him along with Nylander would be interesting.
1 week, 1 day ago on Weekend Mashup: $2.2 million apart
What do you think Fransons worth if say hes given 3.5 for 2 years.
A prospect? 2nd rounder?
The arbitrator doesnt consider previous years. WOW. So when a team drops a player down the lines in contract year they have this in mind.
Thats a bit back handed.
You cant walk if a deal is under a certain threshold or we cant walk if we get a good deal of 2.8.
I cant see Reims getting more.
What is the cap space left to sign Franson Reims and Gardiner.
If Fransons awarded 4million and we sign Gardiner to a similar deal are we forced to walk if Reimer gets his 2.8
@Cameron19 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @MaxwellHowe
Would we keep hold if hes awarded 4 million or the full amount. Is he tradeable the first year? To be honest I havent got a clue on all these odd rules and regulations.
Kurt (JVR) said in 15 minutes 25 minutes ago. So now??
I wonder if Nonis is being kept on to the shit work (arbitrations) and then after shitting on the players gets the boot himself. If we fail, its bad asset management by Nonis for allowing it to get to a point where we are forced to walk. If he goes too hard in the hearing then hes moved as being a bad egg that is lowering the moral of the team and players. If the season goes tits up its because what Nonis has done. If it goes well its because Shanny was brought in.
But Nonis here doing the dirty work means Shanny doesnt have to get his hands dirty.
Nono - its only business fella.
My wifes the same. Baileys this Baileys that. Got me to get the deluxe version as well for her that costs C$55 here in Sweden. Bloody dangerous stuff. So easy to drink, loosens the inhibitions. Needless to say there is a crate in the cellar - lol. I love the Irish.
Hi Kurt long time no hear. Hows it going fella, family well?
You know the actual time of the hearing - knew you would.lol
My guess is 3.8 for 2 years
Im not sure either in regards Franson. I kind of him him 4th 5th d-man like Polak. Preferably 3rd line but could depending whose resting or missing in the top 4 be bumped up and do a job. He has better potential than Polak due to age and the fact he can put the puck in the net but we have Gardiner Rielly and Phanny not forgetting Robidas who are top 4 guys. There isnt a need.
I wont blame Nonis on this occasion even though Im not a Nonis fan by any stretch of the imagination. But he wasnt to know last year that Shanny was coming and a new defensive direction was going to be taken. He didnt know that we would get Polak and Robidas or Rielly would do such a decent job. Franson was an insurance policy that we may have to walk away from. Shame, bad asset management BUT understandable when you change song in the middle of the chorus.
I think his lawyer/agent this time will say last year in the shortened season he showed his potential and this year Franson was bumped down the pecking order because of Riellys development and him needing time, giving a newly acquired Gleason time to see if he would be some sort of defensive saviour and all this time the Leafs management bumping Franson down the rankings on a contract year to keep him cheap. I think Franson will win big time.
what is the timeline for it all. How long after the hearing do we have to say ok or walk away. In that period is he even tradeable. Either rules - i thought once arbitration is set you cant trade for a year. - or value, too high for us probably means too high for anybody else. Who will trade for a guy who if we walk away from will become a UFA.
@Burtonboy @Mind Bomb @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs
Yeah but Fraser didnt have a leg to stand on. First decent run as an NHL d-man. Franson has experience and no doubt feels he has been taken the piss out of somewhat.
This is going to hurt us and my guess is we will be forced to walk
just read Franson up in the afternoon
@Mind Bomb @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs
I can see us get well and truely screwed over this.
The 2million offered was an insult and I think the arbitrator will see this and probably turn this against us.
I would have thought if Nonis had gone in at 3-3.5 and Franson gone in around the 4.5-5 mark then 3.7 - 4 both sides would have been happy. Nonis maybe saying thats the top end of his valuation but still considering to keep him. I wouldnt be surprised either if the arbitrator is so flummoxed by Nonis low balling that he thinks Fransons 4.2 is reasonable.
Sure hes getting a raise because of economics but he is still youngish, still learning and will only go on to improve those parts of the game left behind. As for his scoring and importance to the team, 1st PP unit, our leading defensive scorer for the past two years and his general tough play. Not tough as his size would suggest he could be but he isnt a slouch.
I really cant see him getting less than 3.7
What time is the arbitration set for and I presume its a rather short process and we expect to hear something within 20mins of that time?
Personally I feel if we want to get the deal down it will cost us somewhere in the region of 3.2mill to 3.5 mill. I reckon Franson will be awarded around the 3.7mill to 3.9mill mark. Which in my opinion he is worth.
So Franson wants 4.2 million. Well arbitration will award a 1 or 2 year deal and you generally have to pay higher per year for less term, or term/security allows you to grab on the cheap.
We've had a good enough look at him now. Is he Maple Leaf material or not. He is still youngish for a 50/50 guy (like Phaneuf, neither quarter back nor bona fide stay at home) so whereas his puck moving/PP usage has probably peaked or roundabouts what you expect him to acchieve his stay at home defensive sides will mature more.
But Nonis saying 2 million. lol. Why didnt Nonis just say your hockey is a joke - youre a muppet. F-off and do one. I think if he offered 3 million then Fransons camp would have cooled a bit and asked 3.7 and you have something to work on. But 4.2 or 2. Its a joke and to be blunt f-ing rude.
