Bring the Cup Home
Bio not provided
well well well. i just got home......from the game. honestly i was stoked to have tix but didn't think i'd see what i saw. solid effort all around. some thoughts after seeing them live for the first time this year:
- Kessel. Kessel Kessel Kessel. Okay, granted, Perry looks VERY good out there. But Phil Kessel simply has another gear over any other player on the ice. He is dangerous. That whole line is dangerous. Every time they're on the ice they could score.
- Ranger. I was his biggest critic earlier in the year so i'll gladly give him his due. Since the olympic break, he's been playing decent hockey. he looked good again tonight.
- Bernier. Nuff said. Solid as a rock and our playoff hopes rest on his french canadian shoulders. Love him.
- Team Identity. We were a pain in the ass to play against tonight, and i let the fans in Anaheim know it. Was easy to stand up and cheer when Gleason dropped the mitts, when Clarkson fought twice. Overall we looked like a pain in the ass to play against tonight. Playoff type win.
Great night. 2 big points to start the road trip. if we were able to sneak out a win the sharks, i'll shit myself.
I also have tix to Thursday night against the Kings. What a great week!

@Leafs rule @Bring the Cup Home
works out well than Scehnn was number 2 and JVR is 21. makes for an easy shirt swap.

i'd look at putting him on the 4th line (with ability to move up to 3rd line when needed).
that way, we could roll 4 lines more often and give our top guys a lighter workload throughout the season. what a 4th line of:
Komarov - McClement - Ashton
That line would be responsible with the puck and would actually score every now and again. Also would be tough to play against.
@Cameron19 @Bring the Cup Home
a LOT less? i think there'd be a bunch of teams wanting his services and see him as a good 3rd line guy and pay accordingly.
how much would you offer komarov to come back? i'd offer him 3 years at $2 million per year.
agree. we don't need both komarov and clarkson. they are a very similar player. one just costs a lot more.
@mike_84 @Bring the Cup Home
agree. but we sure would look good.
if i could wave a magic wand and make one move heading into the playoffs, here's what i'd love to see happen.
I'd like to take the $5.25 million we pay david clarkson and the $2 million we pay cody franson and i'd have a $6 million a year guy as the anchor of our 2nd line D-pairing. i'd then use the additional $1.25 mill and put it towards a $2 mill a year offer for leo komarov in the offseason.
komarov = clarkson (but for WAY less money)
other $6 mill D-man is WAY better than Franson
that would be something i'd do if i could pull off a magic move heading into the playoffs.
i'm wondering if bolland will make it back this season with any sort of impact. i hope he gets a good 10 games in leading up to the playoffs where he can round into game shape hopefully. it really will be like adding a nice trade deadline rental if he comes back strong.

4 days, 9 hours ago on The Maple Leafs did nothing, and that’s all right
@BBirde @DJBrianBurke@Jmessih@Bring the Cup Home
JVR has a 40 goal 40 assist season.
Kessel has a 45 goal, 60 assist season.
stamkos has a 60 goal, 50 assist season.
Leafs win cup.
we need the salary cap to just keep risin' the next 3 years. big time. then it could happen.
to those who posted a potential future line of:
JVR - Stamkos - Kessel
Just stop it. You're making me crazy. I gotta work, but now i can't think of anything other than how crazy good that line would be if it happened when Stamkos contract is up. They'd be the following ages to start the season in 2016:
Stamkos at 26 years old.
Kessel just turning 29.
JVR at 27 years old.
That would be the best line in Leafs history if you could keep them together for 4 or 5 years.
I also want our $5.25 million guy to bring 'toughness that can also play hockey'. he sure is getting paid to do that.
