Bring the Cup Home
Bio not provided
looking at ohl stats, the league leader usually ends up just above 100 points by the end of the season. connor brown looks to be on his way there if he can stay healthy. my favorite list was this one:
check out the top 15 on that list. lots of interesting names. all the way to number 15.

agree it's farfetched. but it's the most realistic scenario i could think of.

they'll be fine most likely. look at karlsson.
i like his game, but agree he needs to be better.

okay, so in theory....how do we get a number one center?
if you believe in magic, the cap goes up way more than expected and we sign joe thornton this summer to 3 years at $7 mill per year.

i hope they get through december with a .500 record for the month. if they could somehow pull that off then start to get healthy and stay relatively healthy they'd be looking okay.

Franson could come back. Where he was at the end of last year was pretty nice.

totally happy with that. might even be for the best. if gardiner got too good we couldn't afford to keep him so having him as a #3/4 guy could be perfect.

4 years down the road they could be two $7 million guys and then two $5.0 million guys.

Rielly - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Franson
If Gardiner and Franson each developed a little more and Rielly becomes the allstar he could, that top 4 is pretty nuts.
I do think Jake has the chance to top out less than we may expect. and i agree that rielly is going to top out at a crazy nice height.

@NotInsane @TheCanucksnaphook @wiski
agree. he should go down. liles should come up.

i'm guessing that's fake.

with these injuries and the cap space for the short term, i really think liles should be called up and given a chance to play in place of rielly. i may be in the minority, but rielly to the juniors and liles up for the month seems like the move to make for both rielly and the leafs.

Tavares or Sundin in the first one.
Gary Roberts on the 2nd line wing.
Komorov on the 4th line.
Seth Jones playing with Dion.
I'd put Franson with Rielly. I think he could be a good #4 guy if he develops consistency in his D game and a mean streak.

gardiner, bozak, reimer for tavares and a backup goalie. would you do it?
what if they asked for our 1st pick to close the deal? Still do it?
here's my leaf pothead thought of the day.....
i want a time machine so i can go back to 2001 and find mats sundin and tell him how bad it'll get over the next decade and convince him to join our 2013 leafs. he agrees and we add him right now. loophole says any time travelers don't count against cap hit. here's what we'd look like:
JVR - Sundin - Kessel
Lupul - Kadri - Clarkson
Raymond (maybe Leivo soon) - Bozak - Kulemin
Ashton - McClement - Orr
Gunnar - Phaneuf
Rielly - Fraser (soon to be Percy or Granberg)
We'd be contending for a cup right now for sure. That first line would be unstoppable.
Which goes to prove the same point we all know deep down. We need a number 1 center on this team. has been and still is our biggest hole. and we don't have it coming down the pipeline so it's tough to address.

EXACTLY. we have no identity. it's like the fucking ghost of ron wilson is guiding us. we started to look like a team with a solid identity last year. a backbone. tough to play against. will fight you. hit you. wear you down. playoff type hockey that had us make the playoffs then not at all look out of place in them.
we have no identity. we are a rush team that looks lost in our own end, just like when ron wilson coached us. carlyle is being too nice perhaps? any way you cut it, we need to get back to what we were last year. we miss komorov a little on that front.

i'd give rielly to the juniors and bring liles up. he plays a similar game to rielly and yes, rielly will be way better than him in time, but for now, i think liles needs a shot in this lineup to see what he brings to the back end. a veteran back there might be what the doctor ordered.
