@Mind Bomb @Cameron19 @McDickey This doesn't really make sense as Calgary is somehow in a playoff spot, I should of said rebuild

@Mind Bomb @Cameron19 @McDickey Well where Calgary is would make the difference. A team like Nashville in the playoff race could potentially pay alot and nobody expected Forsberg to produce like this and I said if he continued they wouldn't. I was only using him as an example that a team would give up a top prospect and some picks for Kessel.

@Cameron19 @McDickey I guess it was just the way you said it a middling player and first round pick.

@wendelsway1 @McDickey @Cameron19 I do not disagre tho. I also think he could be a keeper but I just think these are some factors that you could make a case to trade him.

@Cameron19 @Burtonboy Completely agree here and that is what I brought up after Buffalo. He has such good skating ability but instead decides to glide, I'd also like him to play defense in a more hockey ready position instead of stood straight up.

@Burtonboy @McDickey You're putting words in my mouth I'm just saying you constantly flop your opinion. Also you were the one name calling and questioning my hockey IQ after the Buffalo game which is the only reason I even noticed your post in here that your opinion just suddenly flip flopped.

@wendelsway1 @McDickey @Cameron19 I never said he was the problem, I'm just saying he's the face of the franchise and change of culture is always preached. 

When the face of your franchise and leading scorer doesn't even get an A on his jersey it also kind of says something.

@TheLoovTrain @McDickey I'm just saying when people post their dream rosters for 3 years from now when they think well be a cup contender nobody ever includes him in a roster spot.

@wendelsway1 @Cameron19 @McDickey It isn't out of the realm of things. The focus is change of culture, well Kessel is the face of the leafs not Phaneuf, not Lupul, not Bernier Kessel, everyone knows this.

@Cameron19 @McDickey If you view kessels value that low. I personally would view the return as a top prospect and probably 2 firsts. We are talking about a player top ten last two years in scoring, teams in desperate need of scoring will pay a fortune. A team like Nashville or Minni with loads of prospect depth would give a very nice return. Maybe even get forsberg and a first out of them if the kid ever slows down.

@Burtonboy @McDickey Ok well then you have me confused. You said then he has been playing great and there is nothing wrong with his play and I have no clue what I'm talking about. Now you admit he has struggled and it is all part of the learning curve. Which one is it because you can't flip flop your opinion when it suits the convenience of your mood in which you choose to base your argument around. Well you can do whatever you but it is very confusing and hard to take your opinion seriously when doing this.

@Cameron19 @McDickey Well I would look at a huge fish. I haven't really considered who it would get but I'd want a franchise player. First thought that popped in my head was maybe Kessel + Gardiner + pick for Tavares, something of that nature it would have to be huge. I just wouldn't rule it out is all I'm saying as everyone wants a franchise 1 line center but it's not as easy, you need to give to get.

One kid nobody seems to have any faith or doesn't get the hype or talked about in future plans is Connor Brown. I think this kid is being overlooked and in his first year with the marlies is having pretty productive year and has some battle in him.

@Burtonboy @McDickey Come on man go and read your comments. All I said was he stood out to me playing poorly in the Buffalo game and you jumped all over me. I never said he was a bust or anything just a simple observation that he struggled to move the puck on the PP and that he wasn't skating hard and just gliding. 

It is completely hilarious how polar opposite your post is now from what you actually said and how you actually reacted.

@Shafty @McDickey He shouldn't get that big of contract tho. Probably around 4.5 - 5 mil which is more than warranted and quite frankly a bargain as far as I'm concerned for the numbers he puts up pretty consistently in a secondary scoring role. Now if they're look for 6+ then that is starting to get a bit much. With Nonis history he will probably take it right to the day before free agency and get a 10year $10mill contract

Players I would trade playoff position or not: Phaneuf, Franson, Gardiner, Bozak, Reimer and I'd even consider Kessel as he would Garner a block buster return that would set this franchise up nicely for years to come. Yes Kessel would be tough to replace but I would definitely consider it for right return. 


Players I wouldn't move: Kadri, Rielly, Bernier, Nylander. so basically I'm saying we should do a rebuild from ground up but I doubt this will happen. Realistically we will only see minor deals happen.

@Sandra87 @djamon Sorry it was late when I read your post, thanks for not correcting me lol. I also 100% agree with you but I see it as the team coming together, they don't stick up for each other on the ice so at least they're showing unity by sticking up for each other in this situation, maybe it brings them together as a group. Thanks Sandra!!

@GibsonLPStudio Landsberg is an idiot, he has probably never bought tickets in his life. I'm a season ticket holder and I'm proud of them for taking a stab at our ungrateful fan base that decides to throw their jerseys on the ice and attack the players wives, the boys are finally standing up for each other for the first time this year.

As I said last night I liked that they ditched the salute, I actually shut the TV off right after the win and didn't know they skipped it until it was reported. What I didn't like after just seeing it for the first time was Robidas, Franson and possibly a few others started skating towards centerice and looked back to see if the team was actually going ahead with it. Once again picking at straws but you think since they had this premeditated they would at least of had everyone on board. Anyways who gives a Fu&k, Go Leafs Go lets get rolling again. Whether we make major changes to the lineup or not it is better to do it from a position of strength then weakness.

@Sandra87 With all to respect sarah you complain about making a story out of it and then rant about it. This is clearly why they made a story about it. I for one always hated the salute from the minute they stole it from the Rangers but I also see it different then you. I don't disagree that it can be viewed as a snub but I see it as more a snub directed at the bandwagon fans throwing their jerseys on the ice and reacting harshly on social media and attacking the teams wives on twitter. I see the players showing some balls and showing they aren't going to take it and they showed that they don't want that happening in there home rink as they put forth a solid performance to get a win and thus salute their fans with victory instead of an orchestrated stick raise.

@Cameron19 @McDickey @djamon Yes and there are also tons that realize his skill set and don't want to get fleeced in a deal. This is a sideways argument, I and most of the respectable hockey world (meaning scouts, insiders) believe he will be a productive NHLer and you believe(and a couple disgruntled Oiler fans) he will score 10goals a season and be a bust on the decline at 21. Lets just end it at a difference of opinion.

@Cameron19 @McDickey @djamon man you're just proving my argument and don't even know it.

This is exactly why you do not jump to conclusions on a 21 year old. lol man I'm sorry but go to sleep you've had to many

@Cameron19 @McDickey @djamon They aren't happy with his play. None deny his skill and potential tho because there not stupid, show one post from someone even remotely respectable that has reported they think he's a bust. The only reason Edmonton pondered the idea of trading him is because he gives them a good chance of getting a stud Dman in return because of this potential! Not one single person in the entire world thinks he is on the decline (You're on your own), even if the first season was a fluke due to coming in hot from the KHL that still wouldn't indicate a decline. If you go by this logic then Kadri declined after the shorten season aswell by a fair margin at that. 

This has been fun but I'm done now, nobody can view the future so nobody wins but I'll take the logical approach.

@Cameron19 @McDickey @djamon You're being quick he is 21. He is essentially only in his second full season and pushed in at 18. I'm sorry but I can't argument this any more as it is ridiculous. You're right he must be a bust, I'll take a couch GM who watchs on TV sometimes over NHL experts who not one would ever in there right minds call him declining at 21.

@Cameron19 @McDickey @djamon Whether Rielly is on same pace or declining is irrelevant is what my point was. Unfortunately I was off on my example due to Riellys increased offensive output of late. Yak could get 10 goals in the next 10 games, does this just all of the sudden change whether he is regressing or not

@Cameron19 @McDickey @djamon Once again I'm hearing excuses which is fair because he's our prospect I understand. You're missing my point I'm not arguing who is better out of Rielly and Yak. I'm saying it is idiotic to be saying that Yak is on the decline. All I'm saying is I would love to have another skilled young player like Yak on our roster as his ceiling is sky high still. Anybody with any knowledge whatsoever in hockey knows it is to early to gauge his future.


The original post was Yakapov for Neimi. A 31yr old goalie for a 21year old 1st overall pick and you said you wouldn't do it lol, I bet you wouldn't trade Reimer for Yakapov then either?

@Cameron19 @McDickey @djamon I love Reilly but he has taken a big step back this year in his play from last year. His offensive numbers are down and he has shown defensive lapses but I suppose you haven't noticed this. But saying this I don't think Reilly is regressing the struggles are just part of the learning curve much like Yakapov. lol you say you don't do it with our prospects and first example of our prospects you go and defend one, just classic.

@Cameron19 @McDickey No I'm sorry but you wouldn't. Leaf prospects are protected from criticism, there's zero chance anyone gives up on the leafs first overall pick at 21 years old because that would be just plain dumb, I don't care if the numbers regress from year one because that simply means nothing at that age.

lol You would of been the only one to draft Galchenyuk, it is easy to say that 3 years after the draft. 

He is also not regressing, he is working on his 2 way game hard and has been given credit for doing so. This along with playing with 3rd line players I relate the regression in points you're seeing. To say that a 21 year old kid is regressing every year since his first has to be the absolute (trying not to name call sorry) but dumbest thing I have read yet to date on this site.

@Cameron19 @djamon @McDickey I think he will be just fine, unlike Nylander who is built like a school girl Yakapov was physically ready. RNH probably should of been sent back though. The oilers are being patient, it is you that doesn't seem to understand the concept of player development. Just think 21, now go and look at our Marlies roster and the age of a lot of our prospects that can't even crack a mediocre roster yet, are they all busts? Percy, Granberg, Leivo, McKegg, Biggs, Reilly?, Gardiner? It takes time bud
