@Fish Head @maximus_asinus I'm trying to sell on (Erik) Johnson's upside playing on a strong offense. I think I can get Josi with that. Granlund for Koivu is a harder sell.
2 months ago on Monday Mashup: Colorado Tuesday, Reimer Fine After Concussion Scare
okay so I turned Oshie and Gardiner into Hedman and Koivu. Now I want to turn Koivu and Johnson into Granlund and Josi. Is that a fair offer or am I asking for too much?
I need a quick answer for knowledgeable ESPN fantasy users. I had a trade accepted but it won't be processed until 8 PM EST. If I dress and lock in the traded players, will their stats for the night count towards me even if the trade is processed before their respective games end?

@Mcost61 is that the most expensive 4th line league wide?
2 months, 1 week ago on Season Opener Mashup: The Day Is Here
Tarasenko or Koivu for my fantasy pool? I'm about to make the decision.
@vinoa @loomx @maximus_asinus my draft had Monahan, Kreider, Reilly Smith, and Granlund available late. I think they'll all break out this year. Hence why I drafted two of them and thinking of a third.
2 months, 1 week ago on Tuesday Mashup: Season Opener Eve
@loomx @maximus_asinus I was also leaning towards Tarasenko, wasn't sure if he was completely healthy in regards to his concussion last year though.
@vinoa @maximus_asinus I like Gardiner but I'm upgrading to a guy who plays top pairing and top PP. Gardiner might get that down the road, but I feel Franson and Phaneuf will have that honor all season.
need quick feedback. I needed help on my fantasy blue line so I dealt Gardiner and Oshie out for Koivu and Hedman. I'm likely to drop Koivu once the trade goes through but I need to decide if I should take Tarasenko, Granlund, Reilly Smith, or keep Koivu. What would you guys do?
@sniperstar @maximus_asinus thanks, I like him a lot and I think his stats will only improve with the better team infront of him.
My question marks are Oshie and my D core. J. Schwartz is still available and I wonder if I should pick him up instead.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Saturday Mashup: final rosters to come shortly
This is my fantasy team for the work pool. What do you guys think? Weak links?
FWD: C. Perry, M. Duchene, T. Hall, K. Okposo, R. Johansen, S. Monahan, T.J. Oshie, C. Krieder, K. Turris
DEF: A. Pietrangelo, C. Fowler, J. Carlson, J. Gardiner, E. Johnson
GOAL: S. Bobrovsky, K. Lehtonen
thanks, I'm a lot more confident with my pick now.
in my work pool I picked Monahan, but Brayden Schenn is available. I like both but not 100% Monahan can put up another 20 goal campaign. What do you guys think?
@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.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
@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 months, 2 weeks 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.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Tuesday Mashup: Leafs Links
@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
4 months, 1 week ago on Friday Mashup: The Swarm & Coaching Duties
@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.

4 months, 2 weeks ago on Tuesday Mashup: Catching up
@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.
4 months, 3 weeks 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.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@Bruffins Jagr, it will be a sad day when he retires

great read, I'm glad someone else picked up on the Moneyball similarities. Only time will tell if Dubas is as successful.
4 months, 4 weeks 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.
4 months, 4 weeks 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.
