@dlb Mad @maximus_asinus there was a lot of talk about Granberg during a press conference this summer which made it sound like he was a shoe in for the 6-7 spot. That is why I couunted 8.

@Ensign @Mind Bomb Halak would be a great late round pick. Khubodin (sp?) will probably outplay Ward for starter.
@Hmmm @maximus_asinus I suppose
I was shocked when I heard he was invited though, we're talking about giving young guys a chance, then we sign a proven NHLer and now the D-core looks impossible to crack. Not a bad thing I suppose...
what is going to happen with Tallinder? I don't think the Leafs will sign him, regardless of how he performs in preseason. With him we have 8 defensemen going into the season.

just got off work, how are the Leafs playing? Who scored?

@Doorman @maximus_asinus not a keeper league?
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@Doorman what sort of league is it? Who else is participating? When is the draft?
@Cloud09 @Dangle_My_Berries I also think the player models look disturbing. Faces look like rubber masks, it is quite jarring. Have you seen facial expressions? I wonder if the artist responsible has seen emotion before.

@Cloud09 @Dangle_My_Berries the commentators always feel like they're 2 steps behind the play. Once the games reaches a level where they are acting and not reacting to the play is when I buy the game.
@vinoa @Greg Fenton @Murph2417 a lot of people shit on the Wii U, but if you include it's back catelog, it is far and away better than the Xbox One and PS4.

what is the news on Gauthier? Has he played after his injury?
@CanuckUKinToronto @TheCanucksnaphook @mike_84 boo

@mike_84 @jafa muckbar you must not have seen Kessel swing his stick at Scott. He is a padawan at least.
@TheCanucksnaphook I agree with you, it does break up the conversation. Mashup chat should be visible from every article. If the writers are looking for focused feedback then there should be a method to either filter comments, or a way to attach comments directly to the article. Having multiple pages with different conversations is disjointed, and to a new or casual reader a little confusing.

@mcloki @Burtonboy Pronger and Timonen both go on LTIR, so they have a decent cushion
is there a limit on how many players you can put on LTIR for cap relief? I want to say there is with the limit being 2.
@Xxxxxnew you have to imagine Del Zotto camp is salivating at the news. He'll get another pay day if he plays his cards right.
@Cameron19 @Pent_House @maximus_asinus @ingy56 this is my thinking as well. Leafs would be smart to move Franson now before losing him next summer. We could get a good piece coming back.
@Xxxxxnew Vokoun went down for the season last year with clots in legs, doubt the prognosis is any better
@ingy56 @maximus_asinus okay how about a forward, apparently Timmonen is done for the season. Who would you take? I imagine they're desperate.
I'm not sure how it would work cap wise, but would anyone trade Franson to Philly for L. Schenn + 3rd? I think he'd be a decent 3 pairing guy who could move up the lineup.
@MaxwellHowe but what does that mean? I interpret that as Kadri is more likely to pass off to Lupul when they're together, and when they're not together Lupul is "looked off" because there is a better shooter (Kessel) on the ice.

@LeafErikson from what was said earlier Dubas was on the radio talking about being involved in this signing. Did not listen to the interview myself so this could be wrong.
2 months ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@dlb Mad you have to pencil Kontiola into the opening night roster. He did not buy out his contract to ride the bench in the NHL
@philthethrill he and Kessel have been practicing together all summer. He is our new Snipeforcer.
@Hifi75 hate to bring up the Russian factor, but I bet my left nut Yak leaves for the KHL if he isn't lighting it up this upcoming season. Scary prospect to land him if he walks away for free later on.
has Winnik played with any of our guys before? You know Carlyle likes to pair fowards, maybe we can get an idea of where he might play based on existing chemistry.
@MaxwellHowe @maximus_asinus @Bruffins with his work ethic he could play until he is 50 easy.
2 months ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@Bruffins Jagr, it will be a sad day when he retires
@Jordan29 i think I saw Phook say it, but he might have been trying to say dumbass
2 months, 1 week ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
great read, I'm glad someone else picked up on the Moneyball similarities. Only time will tell if Dubas is as successful.
2 months, 1 week ago on Kyle Dubas: 5 Takeaways on the Leafs most recent hire
@MaxwellHowe @maximus_asinus also the dog from Air Bud comes out of retirement to play Bozak, Kessel's loyal companion.
2 months, 1 week ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
@MaxwellHowe @maximus_asinus I thought a life sized pillsbury doughboy for Kessel, maybe Rosie O'Donnell plays Carlyle.
I can't help but compare the hiring of Dubas to the plot to Moneyball. We hired an advanced stat guy to find good players flying under the radar.
@4evrblue @maximus_asinus bums! Give me Tim Connolly!
A lot of negativity on this site regarding Booth (most of it unfounded). It seems as if we're not trading for Crosby, Stamkos, or Tavares then it is a bad move?
@DARF24 100% agree with the lineup. I expect that this is the lineup the Leaf brass want to go into the season with
@lukethenuke I like the team more with Booth. He basically completes the 3rd line cycle I was arguing for last week. I feel we are now a playoff team.
are we happier with Booth on the 2nd line or the 3rd. Personally I like the idea of him playing beside Santorelli on the 3rd, and Frattin on the 2nd with Kadri. There is chemistry there.
My only question now is Komarov, he was signed to not be "another 4th liner" but he is basically at the bottom of the LW depth charts.
@TheCanucksnaphook @maximus_asinus simply meant that the Leafs might have drafted him under the notion that he was going to be a project player, and then find out he isn't lazy just sick.
2 months, 1 week ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
I then wonder if Johnson's asthma was common knowledge, or if Bergman went the extra mile and found out on his own. Or if we drafted him and we simply lucked out.
A lot of news on Andreas Johnson as of late. His asthma was treated (what does that even mean?) and now he is turning out to be quite a steal being picked in the 7th round. Do we have a scouting report on him? Was his asthma something that really held him back?
@DeclanK @Burtonboy it is actually a photo he snuck of another person's phone. He wasn't allowed on course.
can someone make sense of the arbitration awarded to Sobotka? He apparently owes the Blues one more year of service at 2.725 mil if he chooses to return to the NHL. That is a pretty lowball deal if the rumors are to be believed. Have the Blues effectively closed the door on his return?
@MaxwellHowe do you think it is because Reimer's contract is an unknown? Maybe a deal is pending on his arbitration award.

@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy that is bad asset management. Are we supposed to let a good piece go for nothing? Or do you take a small risk and turn his trade value into more than a conditional pick?
