Lupul - Holland - Kessel

and then trade Lupul at the deadline for big return when he's a PPG playing on Kessel's line

@Loric76 @ingy56 it all depends on how many fixtures it's supplying, and how big the house is (How far the water has to travel before reaching your taps)
They typically have a 1" gas line and suck back a lot of gas during operation, so if you have a huge house and long runs of water lines to reach the other side, you won't have much energy savings.
The new hot water storage tanks are very efficient today, for a bigger house I would suggest sticking with that.

@Cameron19 @loomx overpopulation is going to become a big problem. With the creation of artificial foods and machines feeding us and building industry, humans are free to keep reproducing without natural selection or survival of the fittest balancing our ecosystem. As it is, the earth is almost at it's tipping point. Such a large population breeds more industry, and pollution to sustain itself, and more industry breeds more population. Humans are like a virus spreading uncontrollably over its host cell

@CanuckUKinToronto @Mcost61 i'm doing a 24 day shut down in Fort McMurray working 12 hour shifts on nights. Coffee is my best friend
MLSE needs to replace Lieweke ASAP. Anyone who is running out the clock on a contract to move on to something else does not put their heart and soul into their work.

@Cameron19 @Greg Fenton @ingy56 yeah we don't need any young high end two way centres. Leafs are stacked dow the middle!
@Greg Fenton @mcloki yeah because 3.5 years into a rebuild without a cup is a complete failure
@GreekGod @loomx it'll be very tempting for him to go back to sweden where he could make a heck of a lot more money

@Alec Brownscombe @Burtonboy they want prevent sites like extra skater and what not from accessing data for free, and would prefer to have a company purchase the rights to use the data.
Good work David, I'm surprised by the praise you're getting in the comments section. Whenever I, or anyone else, has suggested this, everyone would lose their minds. Bozak is a very well liked person, but he's merely a placeholder on a line that does not gain anything from his presence, or loses anything from his absence. What worries me about this, is that when someone does emerge as a clear cut 1C, Bozak will struggle anywhere else in the lineup. He's not good enough offensively to lead a secondary scoring line in the top 6, and not good enough defensively for the bottom 6. The Leafs should trade him while his value has peaked.

Great job Alec, I really enjoyed that interview. Just what the doctor ordered, we here at MLHS stove were going stir crazy.

@NinetyThree @dlb Mad haha that was Riley Sheahan who is part of the red wings organization. The kid was unbelievably drunk when he was pulled over
@Alec Brownscombe "This roster has a lot of weird stuff happening on it, but paying Jordan Staal $6M through 2023 makes next to no sense. They basically gave him a whole fuck ton of money and term in the hopes he could be a second line centre, but his numbers have gotten even more third liney since leaving Pittsburgh. That’s about as financially sound a play as betting your life savings at the track on a three-legged horse."
lol I liked this quote because just recently got into a debate with a couple posters who still say we should trade for Jordan staal to play 1C

@ingy56 @Bruffins @TheCanucksnaphook we already drafted the supposed Lucic 2.0. Still waiting for Biggs to do something
@dlb Mad Sometimes I wonder if Fenton reads any of the articles on here. He's been coming on here pushing the same narrative for as long as I could remember (ie. Phaneuf sucks, Kessel isn't a franchise player, Carlyle is a good coach because he's won a cup, blah blah blah) That and continuously playing devil's advocate in arguing with posters just for the sake of arguing.

@docmma @Cloud09 @Jmessih if Kadri follows his 50 pt season with a 55-60 pt season, he won't be that cheap. Probably looking at 6M per
@Bruffins or if, like real union workers, they all got paid the same

@Cameron19 @Yaknowwhat I'm really hoping this was leaked to Simmons to temper expectations for Gardiner. He just signed a long term contract and everyone was slotting him in with Phaneuf. If the hype continues all offseason, media and fans would crucify jake for any screw ups in the first couple games
@Jordan29 @Cameron19 seems ridiculous if their plan was to trade Gunnarsson for a lesser D-man to play with Phaneuf that forces him to play the side he's least comfortable with
@Jay_Berg it really is a terrible idea. Hopefully management is just leaking that info out to media as to not let the media run with Jake or Rielly being locked in on the top pair. If media hypes it up all offseason they'll crucify the kids for any screw ups early on.
@Burtonboy @The_Polish_Cannon we need to start a petition
The only thing I cared about in that Simmons article
"I keep hearing that Joe Bowen won’t be doing any Leafs games on television this season. Radio only, I’m told, for the voice of the Leafs. "
This is sad news
@Burtonboy @Jay_Berg I can't even find this Simmon's Column that's being quoted
@Jay_Berg Crazy Carlyle still calling the shots!
@Cameron19 I've always felt we're better of developing our own players rather than hoping players sign retirement contracts here in TO.
@Jordan29 @Burtonboy it doesn't take a sharp individual to realize the cap will continue to go up. Its what every agent keeps in mind when negotiating long term deals.
@Savo43 @Cloud09 if he's given consistent line mates he'll find consistency. He had a revolving door of wingers with Raymond, Clarkson and Kulemin. Clarkson dragged down all production when he was there
@Jordan29 3 years ago the cap was 64.3 M. Since then it has increased 4.7 M. Weber's cap hit was 11.6% of the salary cap at the time. That would be equivalent to roughly 8.25M with today's salary cap. Weber being the much better defensemen leads me to believe Subban will be awarded less. Erik Karlsson will more than likely be used as a direct comparable. Karlsson signed in 2012-2013 for a cap hit of 6.5. Which was 9.2% of the 70.2M salary cap at the time. Adjusted to todays salary cap of 69 M that would equal an annual cap hit of 6.3 M.
Who knows what other variables arbitration will bring into account, but i'd expect subban to be awarded 6.5M - 7M tops
4 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: We’re Gonna Need a Montage
@RandomScrub @The_Polish_Cannon @DJBrianBurke @Xxxxxnew yeah no doubt that's probably his goal. Is it really worth it to create so much bad blood between the organization and its star. My guess is Subban is not going to forget this treatment, and is going to jump ship to a team he feels wanted on
@RandomScrub @The_Polish_Cannon @DJBrianBurke @Xxxxxnew yep. Bergevin is playing hardball but at the cost of alienating his star player. Yet he pays 4th liners 2M and didn't hesitate throwing money to Emelin. He's playing hardball with the wrong players
@DJBrianBurke @The_Polish_Cannon @RandomScrub @Xxxxxnew he'll be an RFA at the end of his 1 year deal awarded by arbitration though right?
@RandomScrub @Xxxxxnew every other team in the league would jump at the opportunity to lock subban up with an 8 year deal. It must feel extremely shitty that his own organization, that he's worked so hard for, doesn't appreciate his efforts and value
@RandomScrub @Xxxxxnew it's worse than nickel and diming him. Bergevin is flat out robbing him. Subban wanted a long term deal 2 years ago, but gave in to bergevin's bridge deal for half his market value in order for Subban to prove what he can do. Well he went on to win a Norris, join the Olympic team and lead his team into the playoffs. Now Subban, after losing millions he should have had in the first deal, is being robbed again.
@Burtonboy in 2 years Nylander will be 1C and Rielly will be accepting the Norris trophy for the second year in a row
@TML it would be funny to witness Habs fans pulling a 180 and defending Dion after years of senseless chirping. According to every Habs fan I know, Dion is the worst defender in the league
@Jmessih apparently both side agreed to a 1 year deal from arbitration
@Cameron19 @The_Polish_Cannon @hoolihan @vinoa it's unfortunate that his embarrassing argument has gotten buried at the bottom of the thread
@Cameron19 @hoolihan @vinoa "How many playoff games did he lead the Leafs into?" how many playoff games has Tavares led the islanders into? I guess Tavares is a worthless sack of shit than eh can't even win his team the cup on his own
@hoolihan @The_Polish_Cannon @Greg Fenton @loomx anyone who doesn't see how valuable Phaneuf is as a defence man is just plain ignorant.
Pushing out the team's best all round D-man to make room for an offensive minded D-man with a massive contract is poor cap management. The organization has been making a concentrated effort to draft mobile puck moving defensemen for the past few years. Rielly, Gardiner, Finn, Percy. If Rielly hits his full potential he can very well be a Norris caliber D-man
@Greg Fenton @loomx I wouldn't say Subban pushes Phaneuf out. Subban isn't even trusted to kill penalties
@loomx he's even ruining potential line combinations by holding up a roster spot from these 1M dollar depth signings
@Alec Brownscombe and too top it all off he takes a hometown discount to play here
@loomx Subban wanted to sign with term before and forced him to accept a bridge contract and it absolutely blew up in their face. Now they're making even worse. How could they throw money at Emelin without hesitation and dick around their star player. Both sides now want a 1 year deal, MTL has no choice but to trade Subban at the deadline now or risk having him leave without returns
