I could see COL being more interested in a player like phaneuf. However, Ill admit I don't catch many Arizona games so I'm not too familiar with Yandle aside from highlights

Phaneuf for ROR ?
Yaknowwhat, Mattmark, Otis, Zeus. I remember them all losing their shit about the Nylander pick

Where are all idiots that freaked out about taking Nylander over Ritchie ??

@Bring the Cup Home @Dangle_My_Berries its only a few games in and they've drastically changed their play. Give them time, they'll figure out how to bring out the offence. Right now they're probably concentrating too much on the defensive side. It's like Kadri how he sacrificed his offence to play better D. and after a while he started to incorporate his offence again
1 week, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #44, Toronto Maple Leafs at Anaheim Ducks (10 p.m., SNO)
@Cameron19 @The_Polish_Cannon A team like Edmonton, Florida, Colorado were teams that thought they were better than they actually are. I think Edmonton would have been extremely interested in Phaneuf, they showed in the offseason they were desperate to add on D
And i'm not saying i have anything against Kessel or Phaneuf, I like them both as players. Just the organization has failed massively to build a team around them while they're in the prime years
2 weeks, 5 days ago on The Randy Carlyle era is over
it's funny coming back on to read all the comments now that we're at this point. I remember early in the offseason suggesting that since we have not surrounded Kessel and Phaneuf with the right pieces, that the organization should trade its core and shift its focus to building around the next wave of young players in the system. Everyone lost it on me in here.
I suggested that they try to make trades and get draft picks included in deals from teams that might be under illusions of how well they will play this season, and hopefully get some good picks in this deep draft coming up. It'll be a lot harder to pry picks away from a team with a good draft position now.
@Jimmie Dorey @djamon its' hard to evaluate D men on a team whose forwards don't play D and continually leave the zone before the team has possession of the puck

@wendelsfist @TheGroobster the top line hasn't changed and they sink the team's overall possession numbers
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: Wings Again on Saturday
@Dougie Wraparound Reimer's there but no Bernier eh?
Dec was referring to an idiotic comment Carlyle made a while ago about how he thinks concussions occur now cuz the head swells and gets to tight in the helmet
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Saturday Mashup: Rangers Tonight
That's probably the least likely trade scenario.

Now there's analytics I can follow
2 months, 3 weeks ago on GDT: Game #10, Toronto Maple Leafs at Columbus Blue Jackets (7 p.m., SNO)
I thought Carlyle said Reiner should've been 1st star
Or a bigot
2 months, 3 weeks ago on GDT: Game #11, Chicago Blackhawks at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
Lol to everyone who used to say kadri wouldn't work with Kessel. Now we need a 2C !
@daniel marois @The_Polish_Cannon @Great Dane so you reiterated what I just said. In the offseason Edmonton would have been a perfect team to trade with, might have gotten their 1st and then some for say Phaneuf. Now that all their optimism is gone and they realize they will be drafting high again they won't give up that pick so easily
3 months ago on Game Review: Game #8, Boston Bruins 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@daniel marois @The_Polish_Cannon @Great Dane this is an exceptionally deep draft though. Teams won't be trading top 10 picks as easily as other years
@Great Dane @daniel marois and players are quickly depreciating their trade value. Teams won't be wanting to give up first round picks this year. The time to blow up the team was in the offseason, try to make a deal with a team that had disillusions on how well they would preform this season. ( a team like the Leafs ). Everyone unleashes on me for that.
This team is so bad no one will have much value in a trade. Should've blew it up in the offseason
3 months ago on Game Day: Game #8, Boston Bruins at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
I'm fuckin sick of this team, blow it up! Build around the younger pieces. No way Shanahan has patience for this crap
Today was tragic. But hopefully Harper doesn't react the way the U.S. did after 9/11 and use this to take away our freedom and create a police state.
3 months ago on Leafs-Sens Wednesday Night Game Postponed
The problem is religious fundamentalists all together. It's sad to hear everyone jump on Muslims because of today's tragedy. Fundamentalist Christians are responsible for MUCH more acts of domestic terrorism in North america. Even before bush invaded Iraq he told the prime minister of France that the war in Iraq was foretold in the bible and was the final struggle between Gog and Magog.
3 months, 1 week ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
This team is so bad it's laughable
In Bozie's room lol
They play NHL15 together at Bozie's
Because Rielly was down and another Detroit player was coming. If Gardiner raced and got pinned against the boards, the puck could have got kicked out in front of the net with no defender in front
Are we back to blowing up the team?

Last couple of years

Let him play Friday, if Reiner still plays well he deserves to play HNIC also. He can handle a back to back after a few days rest. Than you can play Bernier the following week
I might be wrong but don't the AVS get out shot more often than not also?
I haven't gotten to see many games yet stuck at work. Have they shown it on tv? Is it as cool as the Halifax mooseheads one?
Has the leafs been using that on ice projector before games to pump up the crowd yet?
This team sucks
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #2, Pittsburgh Penguins 5 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 2
Yeah Bozak is able to get open in front of the net for goals. But he can't carry the puck through t he neutral zone and he can't play defence. Two qualities much needed for a 1C
3 months, 2 weeks ago on GDT: Game #2, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., CBC)
Can't wait for the fire sale! Better get some good draft picks
If Lupul was on his left side he would have twisted his left knee enough to dislocate his shin bone and kick it to his right side instead
Good call maybe I should watch closer
Why play Phaneuf on the left and gardiner on the right during the power play???
Who made that pass that led to the turnover by Crosby?
What's with this team playing players through injuries
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Maple Leafs claim Richard Panik off the waiver wire
So Bernier admits his knee isn't 100% and he feels a pinch in it when he goes down. How bout we let our prized goaltender recovery properly so we can get 5 or more good years out of him! If he's out for a while than worst that happens is we collect a good draft pick and than have a goalie able to have a long career
@Walter_White @The_Polish_Cannon ya could go either way with the two. I see Rielly as a better play maker in the offensive zone and Gardiner more shoot first. So i figured have Rielly setting Phaneuf up for one timers and Gardiner to work some offensive magic on the 2nd pairing
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #1, Montreal Canadiens 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3
Good recap, I also thought Phaneuf struggled a lot on the left side. Gardiner and Rielly also don't work to well as a pair unless they're on the power play, moving phaneuf to the RD can balance out the pairings.
Rielly - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Robidas
Percy - Polak
Said he'd trade him for a winger that can cycle. Which is ridiculous cuz that's a massive overpayment. If you're trading Kessel it's for 1C or high draft picks
3 months, 2 weeks ago on GDT: Game #1, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., Sportsnet)
He was playing 4th line and was a liability. When he was successful in the top 6 it's not because he was playing as a playmaking center. He was just defensively aware, went to the net hard and got open for Lupul or Kessel to get him the puck or bury rebounds
Why was that deleted? He just said he doesn't like Kessel
Classic Bozak is back, terrible in his own end and missing open nets
