@philthethrill Take your pick of Kessel or Dion...and heck anyone else not named JVR, Reilly, Nylander.

@DylanJ I think you'll see Mitch Marner taken with our pick considering the London connection.

@traNsplantEdneWfie Don't want him traded but more and more it looks like that the goal is a tear down so it looks like the best starting point.

Does Shanny and the new management team (I assume we're all on the Nonis will be fired train) have the stones to rip it apart and go full rebuild or do they keep a Kessel and Phaneuf along with the new identified core and rebuild that way? I think there is an appetite for a full rebuild just need someone within the management group to actually stand up and say "This is gonna take a few of...please stand by because we're going to win the Cup".

@MaxwellHowe @Cameron19 Well that hasn't happened since 2011 so I think we're good.

@mtommy @RememberSalming I love Kessel and don't want him moved but if you're going the full retard then you are kind of obligated to do it.

@Mitch92 @steele123 Not saying we should get him more of a question to see if they would and how the regard him on their roster currently. They're kind of stuck with both Staal brother not really wanting to have to try hard or play meaningful hockey.

Think Carolina would ever move Skinner and do we think he'd ever reach the same heights he did prior to the concussions or are his "best" days behind him?

@DeclanK If LA picked up 50% of the money left on the deal I'd do it. Or if they did it straight up for Clarkson...

@Mcost61 I'm with you on that. Nylander doesn't need to be said but as much as it kills me those are the only keepers. I'd also keep Komarov based soley on the heart and soul factor and you need those guys.

@Omac13 @steele123 I'd rather Vinny too just because he has the expereice just saying that Vinny is not even 1/100 the player he used to be.

@Omac13 Vinny can't skate anymore. I think he is far more likely to be moved to a Nashville and play for Laviolette.

Stoked for Big Willie Style's AHL debut. I think he'll get 10-15 games in the A and if/when the Leafs have a losing streak for 3-6 games you see Nonis fired and the interim GM proceed with a sell off.

Reply

@rustynail @wendelsfist @steele123 @Burtonboy Likely a bit of A and a bit of B. Kessel needs a coach that has the gravitas of a Babcock to fully come into his own. I think Phil has it in him but he needs to be pushed and challenged to come out of his comfort zone.

@Cameron19 @Yan28 Cam I'm with you. The core isn't horrible but it likely isn't Stanley Cup caliber right now. Add a few more pieces and I think you'd be surprised.

The shitty part is what happens if the Leafs remain in the playoff hunt. Is Nonis still here...or does someone take over in the interim and trade off everything of value save for a Reilly, Kadri, JVR...Kessel. Who is safe if you're going full retard?

@Gille Ruadh With the terrible management and the faceless corporations owning the team it is fashionable to tear them down...coupled with the fact that the team is usually bad it is just easy pickings.

@Gille Ruadh Just a hatchet job done by Kelly. He doesn't suit what the media wants so thus they've disliked him since Day #1. Thing is the players didn't like Carlyle and that wasn't a secret so now the media takes Carlyle's side (sorta) and can blast Kessel and now Kessel is public enemy #1. 


Sadly Kessel will be run out of town and he'll Larry Murphy us.

Having Ron Wilson blast the players/team like that is like having your ex from High School say you're a jerk 4 years after breaking up. It should hold no water because it is just OLD sour grapes.

@traNsplantEdneWfie The Leafs are always ranked lower because if anyone in the media defends they're labeled as a "Leaf fan" and then they're tainted. The Leafs could be 82-0 and you'd still have people say they aren't any good.

@Cameron19 @MikeGartner11 @BPsotka @dlb Mad  Bozak is a very good 2nd liner centre. Nothing wrong that and his cap hit is very good. I'm not too concerned especially with Kadri's improvement. A #1 would be swell but with none out there that we'd WANT I am okay to wait until the right opportunity.
