With TSN covering the Raptors next year, I can see them getting higher ratings then Sportsnet with their big TV contract if the Leafs fail to make the playoffs again.

@barjv01  Edmonton has already said they are deepest at the defensive position.  Nurse is their 'star' defensemen in the wings and they have tons of other guys that will soon develop.  It's likely they'll pick the best player available at #3.

@Cosmos1973  This is what I want to do.  I was talking with someone this morning about going after Florida's #1.  They're looking for an impact player NOW to go along with Lu for their fan base and it's time for us to score on this potential trade.  Kessel for Gudbranson + #1, anyone?

After doing some research I have narrow down my preference to Virtanen and Ritchie.  I'm guessing one of them will be available at #8 and I'd go with Ritchie first.  If both are available at #8 we should move down and pick up more assets, like #8 for #9 and a 3rd rounder or something.

@Zep2  Yes, but there's no way they can win with those centers.  Not a cup at least.  Were they not put out in 4 straight last year with basically the same lineup?

@Jay_Berg  100% agree.  That's why I've been lobbying (to nobody who cares or of power) that we trade Kessel for Duschene.

SHANNY, DO NOT SIGN GUYS THAT HAVE JUST OVERACHIEVED AND ARE LOOKING AT ONE CHANCE TO SCORE A CONTRACT!  Examples: J. Blake, Clarkson, Gomez, Holik.

@Pent_House  Yes, but that's like saying their problem was simply giving up too many goals - there's a lot more to it when you go deeper.  They didn't forecheck because they were never able to get control of the puck in their own zone.

When there's a salary cap you can't win a championship with players like Ovy or Kessel.  It's time to use Kessel as trade bait to build through the middle and defense.  Do it Shanny.

@Leafbites  The way I see it is teams that win have tons of leadership; teams that lose have none or poor leadership.  But, they could be the same team, it's all about winning vs losing.

Here's what I hope Shanny's contract is like:  $1M/year for 5 years and a $20M bonus for a Stanley Cup.  No rewards for just making the playoffs.  That will just encourage rediculous trades at the trade deadline to make it.

@LeafsGuru @Cameron19  There is a way around it.  You can trade for another player and pay a portion of the salary of the player you're trading, which in essence is like trading for cash.

@Xxxxxnew  At least we set his price for the scabs.  Otherwise, he may be forced to sign for less, thus allowing the Habs to have greater cap room because he's a RFA.  There's a point to this.

@whalz @traNsplantEdneWfie  We need to get rid of $8M and go after a top defensemen.  Even if we offer sheeted PK.  Add Duschene and PK and subtract Phil and we're a much better team.

Sorry to say this guys but Kessel is the guy worth the most on this team and we need to shore up the center and defense position by trading him.  I'd be looking at a team like the Avs to pry a guy like Duschene out of there.  We could use a legitimate #1 center, with Kadri as our #2, Bozak as #3 and Holland #4.  We have strong candidates to fill in the wing positions with Kessel gone and when Kuli and Raymond leave as UFA's.  Then we bite the bullet and buy out Clarkson and go after a strong defensemen.

With the Leafs out of the playoffs the average league revenue should be about 50% of projected numbers.  Salary cap going to be lower than expected next year.
