Someone needs to upgrade his garb to Leafs.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Steve Spott on Sportsnet 590
@ChazzMichaels Buffalo will draft McDavid and Eichel with their pick and the Isle's pick. Lucky bastards. They'll be a dynasty soon.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs’ Assistant Coach announcement to come next week
2 months ago on Troy Bodie re-signed to one-year deal by the Maple Leafs
It was part of his contract as an out.
2 months ago on Mike Santorelli signed by the Maple Leafs to 1-year, $1.5 million contract
@Burntheboats @rickpearce76 You're saying this based on personnel we have - but who knows what Randy does. All the potential lines I've seen with a 4th line of Ashton-Holland-Frattin is just that - potential lines.
We may wake up to a game 1 lineup with Orr and FML on the 4th line.
2 months ago on Petri Kontiola Signs with Maple Leafs on a 1-year, $1.1 million deal
@N_Leafs @RandomScrub Bodie was a terrible, terrible, TERRIBLE fighter. Reminded me of Tom Kostopoulos - lost every fight. He doesn't instill fear in anyone.
@LeafsGuru Clearly all our trades will bring in probably 4 top 10 picks. So we draft McDavid, Eichel and there's the beginnings of our new team.
@LeafFan15 @traNsplantEdneWfie @charlieb83 I think it would be a big mistake for him to be on the Leafs next year, but what do I know. Perhaps it really is the right thing - who knows.
I do think he's really a special player that will be a star for us once he comes in. Just my feeling.
@Cameron19 @traNsplantEdneWfie @charlieb83 Which is why I wrote between junior and the AHL. not necessarily both. And I would include whatever overseas pro league they're in.
For Nylander I would give him at least another year in the Sweden and at least a couple years on the Marlies.
I love how Detroit does it and I think it's the right way.
@ingy56 @Doorman Good one, Randy.
@traNsplantEdneWfie @charlieb83 I agree with that. If I was a GM every player would play 2-4 more years between junior and the AHL. Other than the Crosbys of the world obviously.
But, being that Nonis said he will be given the chance, this is just my prediction if he does make the team. I'm not advocating for him making the team.
Prediction: If Nylander makes the team, he will win the Calder. Or be top 3.
@EvanLichty @TheCanucksnaphook LA will have the last laugh when they win 2 more Cups in the next 4-5 years. Then they can worry about Gaborik's deal. I'll take that any day.
2 months, 1 week ago on Toronto Maple Leafs News & Notes
@mcloki @Mcost61 @wiski Teams in LA's position are supposed to do this. It is a great deal for them and for Gaborik.
@Burtonboy Personnel upgrades, I hope.
@Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs That's just semantics. Doughty was #2 and could easily have been #1. He's a monster.
@Xxxxxnew Other than Buffalo, the bottom teams look like they might be a little improved. I can't imagine Florida finishes bottom again.
It would be a dream to finish bottom 2.
@ProfessorRance @Burtonboy The guy who took down the Sheriff in his heydays. Of course the phone is off the hook for him.
@rickpearce76 @Bruffins @LeafsGuru He's not an ideal 1C, no. But he produces - 49 points in 58 games is nothing to sneeze at. For his dollar amount, well worth it. I would still love to upgrade that 1C position to a stud, though.
@leafmealone @Dewy Keon Hogturd HELL NO! JVR?? Cap friendly, 30 goal scoring, playoff beast who isn't even in his prime? What world do you live in??
@leafmealone @rustynail Man, I want to like this post over and over again.
Alec, make this possible!
@Greg Fenton @dlb Mad @leafmealone I don't think it hurts to have a Komarov on your bottom 6 if you're going to have 3-5 kids there also. There's no questioning what he brought to each and every game and he produced more than any of our current bottom 6ers. He was a feisty SOB and we sorely miss that. I'll take a Komarov who can score a few over an Orr or McLaren who can't even skate.
@Elliot Saccucci @charlieb83 @Great Dane Trust me, I know. A brother, 2 brothers-in-law and a sister-in-law all lawyers.
I'm lucky if I get to finish a sentence at family gatherings before being jumped.
@dlb Mad Dude, it gets SO tiring trying to make lemonade out of the moldy lemons that the Leafs keep throwing our way. And they don't even give us any sugar.
@Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy I don't see Bozak helping to recruit though. Stastny here means Bozak loses his role as the #1C. I'm happy with him as the #2C but is he?
@Chris Jay @Doorman Alternatively, if we started the year the way we finished, we would also be golden.
@Mind Bomb @Doorman That's why you should switch to vodka. Even the good stuff is pretty cheap at duty free.
@Elliot Saccucci @Great Dane Can't argue with a man who passes law school and the bar.
@LN-093 @mr_hanie @Mitch_S2 And Stastny.
@The_Polish_Cannon @KingTon @ingy56 @BPsotka But yet people are willing to trade our 1st rounder and Kadri for Vancouver's 29 year old (30 by the time the season starts) injury prone centre.
2 months, 1 week ago on Bob McKenzie’s 2014 NHL Draft Rankings + Mashup
@ Don Cherry @DeclanK Dude, we are talking about being banned from posting on a Leafs fan website. Chill out. He can still read content. This isn't life-altering (I hope - otherwise there are bigger problems).
Deep breaths now.
@traNsplantEdneWfie Wow, that could have gone so many different ways before reading the last few words.
@Reether We would have made the playoffs this year also if we played another 48 game season.
Don't forget how the season ended last year - we were headed into our usual downward spiral when the playoffs started.
@Sexyhairyman I hate the muppets. Never got their appeal. Never watched their movies - but just can't commit to watching it. I don't understand what's so great about it.
@Hifi75 Worst second line in hockey?
Ashton needs to earn playing on the 2nd line and Clarkson is a disaster.
@Sexyhairyman @charlieb83 @LeafsGuru I give up. And there are some weirddddd pics out there, wow.
@Sexyhairyman @charlieb83 @LeafsGuru Haha, me too!
Here's my latest google search "green frog with a bear as a best friend racist muppet picture"
@ Don Cherry @Anthony Petrielli Newfie jokes are similar to Canadian jokes, etc... You really can't compare Newfie jokes to racism. It's insulting for you to even suggest that.
@LeafsGuru What would being Jewish have to do with anything?
Perhaps it is time to google and find this pic.
@Mind Bomb @FrycersGhost I've been around since the beginning also - although I don't post nearly as much as I used to. I remember Wiski from way back and I'm also surprised, but come on - racism can not be tolerated anywhere. You let it show its ugly face without a harsh response and it sends a message you do not want to send.
I'm not hating on Wiski but I think the right thing was done.
@Alec Brownscombe @deedrag It was Phaneuf and Reimer for the 3rd pick. We keep our 9th pick in that scenario.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on (Wednesday Mashup) Leafs hit with a bonus overage charge
@Mcost61 @LN-093 If it was as high as most think he gets, it will end up being like 4 first rounders. Not a 2nd.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on (Monday Mashup) Keeping an Eye on Colorado
@4evrblue @ingy56 Sam Reinhart sounds better.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on [Sunday Mashup] A Jumbo Rumour
Is it just me, or does Steve Spott at first glance look like Jon Favreau?
3 months ago on Toronto Marlies even the series with a 4-1 win over Texas
@Mind Bomb @Loric76 When are you making an MLHS family day at your pool?
3 months ago on Aaron Ekblad Draft Profile
@CanuckUKinToronto You can say that about most teams though, no?
@dlb Reggie @Greg Fenton Bennet is a left winger - unless I read wrong.
But if there's a centre that's as studly as Ekblad, then I would take the centre based on need. If not, then it would be a tough call but ultimately, how do you pass on a talent like Ekblad.
@SundinWasMyCaptain No matter what route the Leafs take, shipping out Kessel would be a colossal mistake.
@Greg Fenton @Mind Bomb @Mcost61 They don't need to be exclusive of each other. We can go on a Cinderella run and then the following year continue on a progressive path. Just because the Oil burned out after doesn't mean that's the rule.
