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.
Hell of a game for Buerley again today too.
Rob Ford makes Toronto a world class city lol.
Ross got in early foul trouble. Should see more of him down the stretch.

@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.

@ingy56 That would be a great way to ruin a reputation.
4 days, 3 hours ago on Morning Mashup: Drafting in the 8 spot
@Belfour20/JB-45 @CanuckUKinToronto I missed it too...LOL.
@CanuckUKinToronto It would appear the answer is blowing in the wind....
@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.
@Archie Vanlanda Would like to see two more columns. One for average and one for career earnings to this date.

@Archie Vanlanda A bit misleading considering it doesn't give an average pay. It just shows what they get paid this year.
Need to see her face.

@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 Well, there is that one issue too.
@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 referring to the eclipse coming tonight, the chick on Glabal National News used the Leafs cup drought as a comparison to the frequency of said eclipses. LOL.
@Belfour20/JB-45 I'd trade Kessel for Duschene instead.
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.
@CanuckUKinToronto @TheJFish 649 Wed and Sat.

@Mcost61 That's BS. If he were in a contract year there's no way he makes this statement IMO.

@Mcost61 I will temporarily cheer for any team that plays the Habs. Then I'm done.

@lukethenuke @mike_84 @traNsplantEdneWfie All good defensive type players.

Kessel should be gone. Teams with Kessels and Ovy's can't win cups.
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.

@Leaf_Maniac Not related to hockey but if you want to see another cool illusion, google Land Rovers new transparent hood they are testing.
Well, here it is...
@Mind Bomb There's a reason Obama wants to rid the world of nukes; because he has other plans.
@Mind Bomb I got the same one.
Anyone getting e-mails from people poking fun at the Leafs? I even got a poster placed in my office that said "Happy Leafs Elimination Day" "Celebrating a Tradition of Failure". SUCKS!
@rustynail Of course they're not skating this morning. They're getting a head start on golfing.
@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.
1 week, 3 days ago on Brendan Shanahan being considered for ‘top hockey ops’ job with Maple Leafs
@Xxxxxnew We need a new philosophy. Tired of all the bs old-school crap. We need to start thinking like the basketball guys. We should be making the rules or code....WE ARE THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS! Fuck everyone else.
@whalz @traNsplantEdneWfie Offer-sheet him 7x$8M.
@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.
@rustynail Does he reach a bonus or something?
1 week, 4 days ago on Game Review: Game #80, Lightning 3 vs. Maple Leafs 0
Could Gilmour fill the role of "President of Hockey Operations"?
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.

@dontcallmeshirley or hockey.
I like to tickle the rafters...
Leafs just don't want it enough. You'd swear the Jets were the ones fighting for a playoff spot.
