Might already be posted... but Holland and Panik had a tilt a while ago.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Maple Leafs claim Richard Panik off the waiver wire
@theacs1966 @RielledUp @Jmessih @Yan28 Yeah, unfortunately you can't just trade for whoever you want. It's not NHL 15. So you want "young guys: to have a chance but you also want to waive Ashton?.. What young guys are you talking about then?.. Nylander? Leivo? Carrick? Broll?.. none of those guys are ready to take on the role over an 82 game season. Best case scenario is that a "young guy" plays good enough to take Booth's spot. I don't get how a 1 year deal can be a bad signing for anyone haha.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs cut Colton Orr, Fraser McLaren, William Nylander; Roster down to 23
@theacs1966 @RielledUp @Jmessih @Yan28 well a 30 goal scorer last year probably wouldn't get paid 1.1 million.... same thing for Raymond and MacArthur... Booth's contract shouldn't have any blame for the Leafs cap... horrible cap management should be blamed.
@theacs1966 @Jmessih @Yan28 yeah because it's such a tragedy to sign a former 30 goal scorer to a 1x1.1 contract
@Burtonboy @RielledUp ahh so that's why they kept him. probably going to get in for the last game
2 months ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
has gauthier even played a preseason game?
@hoolihan @Cameron19 Matt hasn't been drafted or signed by the Leafs. He has been only an "invitee" to all of their camps. Same reason why you don't see Tallinder, Mikkelsson or Della Rovere. (I assume Heeter is listed because he's a goalie)
2 months, 1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
@MaxwellHowe @RielledUp Teemu Selanne is certainly proving my point here today haha.
Star players are aloud to disagree with coaches. If the guy who pushes 40 goals tells you that a play sn't going to work him then you should probably listen. In the end, they came to a compromise. I doubt Phil said "i'm not going to do it" right of the bat, i'm sure he came out with his typical awkward Phil speech "ahhhhh, well i dont think its gonna work for me, you know?" before two of them agreed on something. Theo Fleury talked about this in his book.
The star players never want to do what the coaches tell them and follow a system, they want to go out there and do what they do to score goals. Nate MacKinnon used to tell the coaches in Halifax that he wasn't going to do certain drills or plays because he thought they were stupid.
Of course Feschuk is going to milk it against Kessel, but I'm not surprised that Kessel disagrees with certain plays that the coaches propose.
Bies off Leafs Lunch complaining about the Leafs trading away Steen before he could "develop" yet were saying Kadri has had enough time just one week ago.
2 months, 1 week ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
i doubt there will be a steam for this will there?
@Great Dane @leafdreamer yeah Biggs was a "Saad" pick...
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Morning Mashup: Drafting in the 8 spot
@NotTheCanucksnaphook the question is, is there anyone worth trading up for?.. seems like after the first 3 there isn't much of a standout
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Morning Mashup: Brendan Shanahan to be introduced as President today
@rustynail @RielledUp if hes just fine next season what will he be for the next 5 years after?... i just dont understand how someone can call themself a "professional scout" when you watch david clarkson play and AGREE he's worth 5+ million for 7 years.
first thing they should do is figure out a way to shoot clarkson into the sun
Goal #10 should be the setup for the Leafs #1 PP Unit except now with JVR in front instead. Also, does Dion not see this problem? You'd think if he wanted to be on the right side he would be since he's the captain and should have a voice. I wonder if the players notice this too.
8 months ago on The Decline of Dion Phaneuf
can anyone find a decent stream?
10 months, 1 week ago on Preview and GDT: Maple Leafs at Avalanche (9 p.m., Sportsnet)
I spent the last 10 minutes being so confused reading this and then finally saw what Alec did there.
1 year ago on Game Preview: Leafs look to continue their winning streak against the Bruins
15 points in 16 games for Andreas Johnson in the SHL. That's pretty unreal for an 18 year old is it not?
1 year, 1 month ago on Leafs Prospect Update – October 27
@-Keon- @RielledUp yessir. (it already is here in NL)
1 year, 1 month ago on Kessel, Leafs working on contract extension; could get done tomorrow
Oh my god... this is the best birthday gift ever. Kessel extension AND season opener... too bad i have to study :(
@Cameron19 @RielledUp @GreekGod @Loric76 "very" common in the nhl... not anymore
1 year, 1 month ago on Leafs waive John Michael Liles, 5 others
@Cameron19 @RielledUp @GreekGod @Loric76 and play one at forward errrrrrr?
@GreekGod @Cameron19 @Loric76 Yeah lol I don't think they are expecting to ice 11 forwards on Tuesday are they? Unless they want Rielly or Gardiner at forward....
does Ashton have to go through waivers?
1 year, 2 months ago on Preview and GDT: Preseason Game #5 – Sabres at Maple Leafs (7 p.m., Leafs TV)
So we got the top puck moving defensemen in the 2012 draft on the pp and phaneuf takes the puck up the ice.
1 year, 2 months ago on Preview and GDT: Preseason Game #3 – Maple Leafs at Senators (7:30 p.m., TSN)
Devane could have knocked that Grant guy out of preseason.
nbd dion just the rookie dangling by you
streams not working for me :(
1 year, 2 months ago on GDT: Preseason Game #2 – Flyers at Maple Leafs (7 p.m., Sportsnet & LeafsTV)
Raymond was my buddies favorite player when he was with the Canucks. I'm tempted get a a Raymond knock off jersey just to rub it in (if he makes the team).
1 year, 2 months ago on Kadri’s in the house.. What now?
@Optimustic @Great Dane The thing is about Lombardi is that he costed the Leafs 3.5 million and was on a team that lacked a lot of physical play. Looking at the team now, after Frattin and MacA leaving, there seems to seems to be a lack of speed. Raymond at <1 million should fit in perfectly.
@gunner_36 Leafs and Ottawa will be on TSN
1 year, 2 months ago on Leafs re-sign Nazem Kadri: 2 years, $2.9 million per
Depressing notice of the day: Doug Gilmour's twitter account has been changed to "Mettle United"... Sports lifestyle brand of Doug Gilmour.
1 year, 2 months ago on Leafs Rookie Tournament: Game #1 Live Blog – Leafs vs. Blackhawks
@DeclanK @skippysleafs is it a paid stream or free?
i met ron ellis at the hockey hall of fame in 2008. i had no idea who he was, luckily dad did.

I have a funny feeling he's back next year.

Aren't you suppose to judge an off-season on how the season is going?... How can people say it's a really bad off-season when the Leafs haven't played one game? Jesus Christ I fucking hate PPP.
1 year, 3 months ago on <!--:en-->Morning Mashup: Fraser’s back and now we wait<!--:-->
@bumblez @ionsys It does yes, but it counts as 875K, which would give the Leafs just under 8 million to sign Franson and Kadri.
1 year, 4 months ago on <!--:en-->An interview with Leafs VP of Hockey Operations Dave Poulin<!--:-->
@ionsys Starting to get the feeling that it does. They still went to arbitration, just money wasn't awarded.
This mean's that there's no buyout window now right?...Fuck
I was just reading this, an interview with Kessel back before he was drafted.http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/chat/_/id/7471He states that he never had a favorite team growing up, but if he was forced to pick, he'd choose the Atlanta Thrashers.
@wiski @RielledUp I meant to say "I read the book.. so good" but will still recommend it to you haha...I just finished up reading Bob Probert's "Tough Guy", another good one as well. I love reading documentaries.
@wiski Read the book.. So good.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I smell jealousy.
@SkinnyPPPhish @RielledUp I would love to see a chart like this with Kessel's first 584 minutes with Bozak.. 1495 and 584 minutes is pretty big difference though.
@SkinnyPPPhish @RielledUp I believe 100% of the things I say.
@SkinnyPPPhish "Hey coach I think it would be sick if me and Grabo played together" ... "NO"... coach gets fired... "Hey new coach we know there needs to be some changes round here and me and ol' Mikhail here think we need some playing time together because look at these charts, in fact I play better with him".... "NO"... team gets to playoffs.... If I was a betting man I'd say that Kessel would rather Bozak on his line.... To think that the whole team was praying for a Grabo/Kessel pairing this whole time, especially in the darkest day...it would have happened.
