I doubt any respectable coach will want to come here with all the options coaches have this offseason. Might have to go off the board and hire an AHL coach

@Mitch92 @The_Polish_Cannon i'm tired of the cliche politically correct sound bites. After a season like this I want to see a player act like an NBA player and tell us how they really feel

@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy no kidding... most of these hockey players come from upper class families anyway. Plus he knows he'll be making millions at some point either way

I'm still waiting to hear from Phaneuf. Didn't he make a comment that he would say something about what was really going on this season when it was over?

I remember for a while after the draft it was doom and gloom with you saying how Nylander is too small and should have drafted Ritchie

@yakknowwhat also thought the leafs should have drafted Ritchie over Nylander, I wouldn't put much stock into his opinions

Santorelli was a healthy scratch was he not? And that's not the point, I'm criticizing the poor decisions in asset management. Shouldn't let that many pieces go for nothing in return

@totalrebuild @HHT its not that rare, Cory Schnider just netted the canucks a 9th overall pick last year. And they could of had a better return from Edmonton and Calgary but Mike Gillis didn't want to trade him to a rival

Good to hear! Funny thinking back to when he was first drafted majority of the posters were freaking out saying he's too small and soft, and that the leafs should have took Ritche instead Hahah

Amazing that the media never puts blame on Nonis. They never shied away from attacking Burke though, and he actually left the club in a decent position moving forward

Nothing like that at all. Kessel is still a valuable asset within to organization. Bolland left at the end of the season for nothing... Along with Raymond... And Kulemin..

@TuckerForPunishment Have to also think that Hall, Yak, and RNH could have been the impact players they were touted as if they were properly developed and insulated with a better team. Rather than just throwing all their young drafted players into the NHL when they're not ready

I'm all for getting Babs he's a great coach. I'm just saying it's not all doom and gloom if they can't land him. There are plenty of options out there that we wouldn't even be aware of. Take Willie Desjardins for example and what he has managed to accomplish in Vancouver. I didn't see anyone on here predicting him as a viable coaching candidate

And yet Your ignorance has already formulated an opinion of the man after 4 months. What Shanny has his management team accomplishing cannot be judged by individual moves, it's a long term plan that can only be assessed after a few years of work

Hmm call me crazy but I'm pretty sure other GMs have been successful at building teams without having Babcock as the team's coach.

He's been involved in the game since other kids his age were focused on where the party was Saturday night and which girl thy want to hook up with. Everything Dubas said above is true, and is stuff even a knowledgeable fan of the game can grasp without even ever being a GM of an OHL team or assistant GM of an NHL team

Picks that late can be anyone's guess. Outside of the top 10 there's just not enough resources on these later pick prospects for any of us to make an educated opinion.

If Nonis trades Bernier it's not because he's a mistake or isn't a good goalie. If he has a chance to get a significant return that will put the club in a better position long term then there is no problem

Understandable. deals involving contracts like Phaneufs are highly unlikely to be done this time of year. TDL is for playoff teams looking to shore up weaknesses. It's away expiring contracts to those teams as rentals or take advantage of a desperate team willing to take on a risky contract (ie Lupul). The more valuable pieces can wait until the offseason when their are more suitors

If the leafs are listening to offers on Bernier than Edmonton is a logical target. Edmonton needs Dmen and a goalie, that's a perfect fit for a deal with the Leafs. Phaneuf + Bernier going to Edmonton for a deal centers around their 1st and whatever else to make it work

@TheColborneUltimatum @Beleaf67 it still doesn't matter. If they have 5.3 or more in cap space Horton's cap hit will be added. But if the leafs sign another player than it just pushes Horton's out

you have to think Nonis' time with as GM will be coming to a close after this. The board would of had to agree to spend 26 million to fix Nonis' mistake

@mcloki @Savo43 @HHT the asset management we've witnessed unfold does not line up with any of Nonis's past actions or philosophy. This is the same guy that said after signing clarkson that he's not worried about years  5-7 he's only focused on year 1. Now suddenly there's a massive emphasis on asset management and not letting people go for nothing (grabo, kulemin, macarthur) and also to draft and develope. Now they have to re-acquire draft picks that nonis traded away
