Just heard the new Eastside Hockey Manager is on Steam early access for any wanna be GM's out there
3 days, 5 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bailey set to debut, Marlies within a point of playoffs, lottery date set
Thanks for the great read like always AP. I still hope they move on from Dion, I just view his recent play as upping his value. Also I'm ok with keeping Horachek in the fold but I hope they allow the new coach to bring in his own crew. Fresh voices for a fresh group imo.

@MaxwellHowe or so we hope
5 days, 10 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@rustynail Fuck it, we are going to have plenty of openings next year. Play all these college kids haha
1 week ago on GDT: Game #73, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Ottawa Senators (7 p.m., HNIC)
@Luke_R Where have you read/heard this? I haven't seen anything pointing 1 way or the other.
1 week, 1 day ago on Game 72 – SJS 4, TOR 1 – An even worse start for Toronto
@DeclanK @Reether @NinetyThree Pretty much, trade whoever can provide decent value. You will inevitably end up getting salary dumps, and young players that are ready to step in, in trades. Also on a rebuilding team there will be opportunity for ice time so getting budget free agents shouldn't be too hard (guys like Winnik, Booth etc) to shore up the roster.
I would look at moving everyone not named Rielly or Kadri (excluding prospects) as long as we get decent value back for them.

@DeclanK @Reether @NinetyThree I think it is necessary. You might be able to get away with keeping 1 or 2 of the guys but there are too many question marks, even if you do believe in his pyramid theory.
@DeclanK @Reether @NinetyThree I'm assuming everyone not named Kadri/Nylander is gone from that list.
@DeclanK @NinetyThree Have to take the best player but it would be hard to say no to Strome if he's available.
@Jmessih Maybe Rielly ... maybe
1 week, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #71, Toronto Maple Leafs at Edmonton Oilers (9:30 p.m., SN)
@philthethrill Definitely going to be some off-ice issues for some players there! haha, imagine being 19-21 and living in Vegas with millions.
1 week, 6 days ago on Game 70 Scoring Chances: Canucks 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@wiski Must be a proctologist
2 weeks, 1 day ago on GDT: Game #69, Toronto Maple Leafs at Calgary Flames (8 p.m., SN)
@TuckerForCompassion @Reether @Knights2Leafs I understand where you are coming from, but we can't ignore the fact that this team as it is, is a bad team. It needs to be rebuilt. There can be no question of that at this point.
3 weeks ago on Sunday Mashup: Kadri sent home by Horachek
@TuckerForCompassion @Reether @Knights2Leafs As I said, you can think what you want about the piece. The point is true though that this team has done nothing but add fuel to the fire with the way they have played on the ice.
@TuckerForCompassion @Reether Then why are we here at all posting? Maybe we should all just be saying Go Leafs Go once a day and then logging off.
As fans we are allowed to be upset with how the team is run and how the players have played. The media here is shit but a few of them still put up legitimate points about the team.
@Knights2Leafs The article is written by Friedman, who is one of the better aspects of the MSM.
@TuckerForCompassion As bad as the media is, the team should be ashamed of how they have been playing. If they don't collapse in epic fashion, the media wouldn't have so much fodder to attack them with. They really have made a bad situation worse.
I didn't see the whole interview but from the clip TSN showed Bernier was once again talking about how the coaches were showing them giving up 2 on 1s, 3 on 2s etc. Not much talk about his own play. This guy never looks at himself as a problem from what I've seen.
@Markovv55 Keep it, trading up hasn't worked out well
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Ron Wilson: “Leafs Rebuild will take 7 or 8 years”
I might be the only one that actually likes RW, I liked Carlyle too so maybe I'm the problem lol
Great read AP. I agree with the point of Shanny needing to step up and make himself more available. It is turning into a shit show in this town and he's just trying to lay low and let it blow over.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Leafs Notebook – March 4
@mcloki @Reether Never buy or sub to any of them, and I rarely read the articles. I don't even watch the games on cable anymore haha
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
So how do we go about rebuilding the mainstream media?
@Jay31 LOL can this season get any better?
@Burtonboy lol these media guys think they're invincible. Fuckin pathetic
I bet this has been a topic in the dressing room all year. With the Salute Gate and the losing streaks, and the Phil Outbursts. It's boiling over. Fuck our management is inept.
@sniperstar @Jay31 BOOM!
@peterbleafs @Ze_theLeafsFan They better not
@traNsplantEdneWfie I think Nonis knew exactly what he was asking but wasn't interested in entertaining the question.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@zoidbergman Could revisit it in the summer
@zoidbergman Hype ... all hype
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Maple Leafs trade Olli Jokinen to St. Louis for Joakim Lindstrom & conditional sixth round pick
They should change the draft lottery to:
Every team that misses the playoffs has 1 ball and the order in which they're drawn is the order they pick. That would kill tanking and teams would try to make the playoffs every year.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Deadline Thread II: Dion Phaneuf to Detroit Rumours
@Ze_theLeafsFan This is where we hopefully dump some people
@MaxwellHowe I have my doubts about this theory..
@Yan28 "Do you think St. Louis looks like a legit contender? "
Ya really big curveball there.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
@DarthBurke Alec you shoulda saved that gif you used on me for this
@Alec Brownscombe Odds are one of them will turn out as a better #1 center
This Dion situation better not turn into another Kaberle multiple season debacle
@ConnorCrisp @Radar O'Rielly
You guys can get rid of it if you want
@Radar O'Rielly Ya I saw that, someone is getting fired. It said Lupul was banging her
@Burtonboy wtf does this tell us Traikos!
@Alec Brownscombe Just do it Detroit, I'm tired of your BS!
@peterbleafs @Jon5200 @Beleafer29 I save my hate for the players that have failed 3 coaches now. Horachek already has PTSD
@Alec Brownscombe @Reether I like Carlyle?
lol had a feeling you'd all agree
I like Ron Wilson
If you think about it, some team is going to get a good deal on Dion considering what other teams are trading for these type of guys. He would be the best player that moves today.
@FRyan Must be nice to have media who defend your decisions haha
@Anthony Petrielli 2015 Dion Phaneuf
