8 shots for Lupul - quick trade him for a 1st! ;)

Buffalo wants McDavid more.
I agree, this team needs a good punch in the genitals to see what it's made of. @Bruffins

Have we traded Kessel, Kadri and Reimer for the Isles' Strome and Reinhart (and maybe something else) yet? Get er done!
Anyone in favour of a Shana-tank this year? #Shanatank
4 days, 9 hours ago on Game Review: Game #8, Boston Bruins 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
We need to tank and try to add some 1st rounders this year - even if they're midround so we can move up. Or as I mentioned pick up some early rounders from the last couple of drafts - might be less costly and move up timeline slightly. @MLHS_Luke
Faksa sucks ass @Forever17
I'd like to have a Hall and Oshie line. @TorontoMapleLeafs @Savo43 @LeafsGuru
Every time the Leafs lose, there should be a draw to pick one Leaf player to hand over their game's salary to a lucky Leaf fan.

After his big so-called analysis when he was hired, would Shanahan admit this team doesn't have what it takes and rebuild? Doubt it. Expect more spin and the odd tweak for as long as he's here ...

Are we talking beer after a Leaf win/loss? @JWaterdrager @Yan28
We could have a decent three months but my comment below still stands. Their base is made of shifting sand and as always, the tide beckons ... @Habskilla
The problem is that essentially, the Leafs are still a very fragile team that's never far from an 18-wheeler off the cliff collapse. Do we want better? If so, we need to reconstruct the team.
I think it's already been written and is called Loser. @Mitch92 @Burtonboy
imho, Dion is a good Dorothy. @lou19 @wendelsfist
I agree. They look like they want to win finally and can pull the trigger to do it. @Bring the Cup Home @HHT
I wonder if the Isles would deal with us. Kessel and JT would be dynamite together, add Bernier too. Strome + Reinhart would look good here. We can't make simple cosmetic changes - we need to reshape the landscape.
Clarkson 11 point game to end the year. @Bring the Cup Home @HHT @Mitch92
Yes but they are always a threat late in the year for a season ending 6-7 game winning streak to ruin it all! @Mitch92
To really clinch McDavid/Eichel, we should trade Bernie to Buffalo but not for their 1st - for some prospects. Jake McCabe is one who would look nice.
Gary Roberts :) @darthNihilus
There's another Nylander available in 2016 draft. A brother?

The Leafs ceiling is a bubble team. Wing and a prayer is not a strategy. Gotta prune the weeds and plan the garden. @Zep2 @HHT
4 days, 16 hours ago on Game Review: Game #8, Boston Bruins 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
We need to find nasty young guys who can take a regular shift. And we need to build from center out.
If the Leafs went on a 10 game winning streak, they'd decide this was a team never to be broken up. Until their next slump - lol @darthNihilus
We should stockpile picks for this year's draft. And since shiny new toy syndrome will be at play and raise prices - you might try to grab some prospects from the last two years as well. Bernier as UFA in the distance is scary. How many players have walked for nothing that we could have traded for picks? Asset management.
He looked like that last year. Probably be gone in a package later this year. @Shafty
Leafs dumping Burke for using foul language (or whatever lol) and being no further ahead years later - is that not a classic Leaf move?
4 days, 17 hours ago on Game Review: Game #8, Boston Bruins 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
The Leafs are like that couple that fights all the time and breaks up 6 times a year. Mates, it ain't working. And Nonis should be logging onto Match.com
I know Kadri will come around - just as soon as we trade him to Detroit.
How about a new branch called ... GM analytics? @darthNihilus
Gards, Dion, JVR, Phil would all fetch a bushel of assets. Add in Lupul, can't stand him. Time to rebuild right. Talented, hard-working, nasty mix. No more 'the fan base wouldn't tolerate a rebuild'. That's been happening since the 1980s.
This team is now so bad, Clarkson is making it into MHLS rosters of the future! How times have changed. @DylanJ @MaxwellHowe

Damn, the Canes are not giving us a chance. #McDavid
There's a 6'4 Finn power forward named Rantanen that DET may snag in top 15. Maybe we grab him. Nylander-Rantanen.
1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Bruins Saturday
We should have damn well been accumulating firsts in this draft - really good guys going top 5. Kylingon, a Swedish D who is described as an elite skater, Paul Bittner a 6'4 power forward with good hands and Dylan Strome C who we would love. Not sure we could acquire #1 or #2 because those teams will look to royally fleece any trade partners. But some of those other guys I mentioned would look nice. Yeah maybe we set back our timeline but at least our team will have some substance and a chance to compete regularly. I still think we need more meanness on our top 2 lines. Not shrinking violets. @NinetyThree @Dogger
If we haven't dealt Gardiner, maybe him (+) could land it (hopefully he has an epic 15 goal second half as the Leafs tank down the stretch- I know, likely right?) ... @NinetyThree @HHT
I wouldn't mind adding this guy (D) at the draft http://www.draftsite.com/nhl/player/noah-hanifin/20943/
I'm not saying we'll end up there, but I do think the Leafs need a bottom 5 finish this year and next to infuse the blue chip talent needed to have a chance at moving from bubble team to something a step higher (a blue chip forward and a big nasty D). And I think we have to make some trades to make our forwards more bad-ass.
Sounds like more than one gunman - there's more work to do before hockey or anything else.
Canadian Senator describes multiple gunmen as wearing all black with white bandannas across their faces.

1 week, 4 days ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
We have a lot of one dimensional players and the problem is that most are 6/10 at it. I think we need to finally build up the middle and need to have some nastiness. Not gooniness but sufficient amounts of nasty and sandpaper up and down the lineup. And then you have your skill. NY Islanders 1980s. That's one thing that helps a young team gel as they develop. I think we need us a Foligno and a Couturier.
We have made some smart moves but I also think the ceiling of this team is bubble team- I don't see enough mental toughness, something needed in Toronto. We have a number of players who could bring a 1st (or more). Gotta consider all options in this draft year. Even after Connor and Jack are gone - 6'3 205 D Noah Hannifin or C Dylan Strome would look awesome on a rebuilding Leaf team. We don't have a second this year and generally need to recoup some high round picks.
I wonder if he'll be lucky enough to move Clarkson if he manages a decent year. @vinoa @djamon @Anthony Petrielli
Hopefully, Nonis learned something from the experience. @djamon @Anthony Petrielli
Sensing a Blog Post: "Bolland's Landing" [gif of an exploding whale] @Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy
Too bad we didn't offer more for him!!! @bigjim @Anthony Petrielli
Why risk guessing. Hold onto Phil until the final draft positions are cemented. @Bring the Cup Home
