18 hours, 36 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner talks contract with Greg Brady
@Jordan29 @wendelsway1 You could be right....or not. Just a beef of mine.....I don't like to discuss what if's.....cause until it happens, you don't know how Mgmt would have handled it.
18 hours, 40 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner talks contract with Greg Brady
@Jordan29 I disagree......he may have made the team.....that is an assumption, on your part.
18 hours, 49 minutes ago on Jake Gardiner talks contract with Greg Brady
@TheCanucksnaphook @Jordan29 It's not wrong to be cheering for the kids to make the team.....just want them to earn it.....and I hope a few of them do......every season. :)

@Burtonboy I agree, Bboy. One of the perks of having depth is not having to rush our youngsters. Promotion will happen when/if they earn it. That is not to say that exceptional players should be held back. Every player has a different development path. I said the same about Rielly, last year, as I will say of Nylander this year......if the powers that be think he is physically and mentally ready to play at the NHL level, then that's where he should be. Mgmt has the necessary info to make an informed decision....we do not.

@Yaknowwhat Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!....if you say it loud enough, it always sounds precocious....lol ;)

@The_Polish_Cannon @wendelsway1 Unbelievable.......I'm obviously watching a different team than this joker..

@Burtonboy @Yaknowwhat Kontiola intrigues me.....crossing my fingers that two Finns will be better than one, in the line up.

Good Morning Gents......had to look back to see what this Burch guy said that was so silly.......FML....Franson is our best Dman?.....Is this Frigger trolling me?....lol :)

@Bobsyouruncle @wendelsway1 Damn....you got me...ummmmm.....there are exceptions to every rule.....Frattin's my exception :) lol
1 day, 12 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@dlb Mad Frattin eh?.......nope...we just got him back....he stays, for now, and will be just fine. :)
@Mcost61 @wendelsway1 @wendelsfist Obviously....lol :)
1 day, 15 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@wendelsfist Gardiner isn't going anywhere.....he's part of the core
I really don't give a flying rat's ass about PK, what he wants, what they are prepared to give, etc, etc.......HE'S A FRIGGIN' HAB! :)
@Burtonboy @skiingallday And in all probability, a last minute deal will get done before Arb.
@dlb Mad @wendelsway1 LOL....To the Mystery Machine....Dubie! ;) lol

@dlb Mad @Mind Bomb Dubie, dubie, doo......like Bon :)
@ingy56 @wiski Good show!....that's the way to throw a party!
@dlb Mad @wendelsway1 LOL.....I'm allergic to people and players whose names begin with F and end with N....lol :)
1 day, 18 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Jordan29 Good for you....Enjoy!
@Jordan29 Nope....I'll be here all day...lol :)
@Mcost61 Good Morning!
@dlb Mad Happens to everyone........by the end of the day, we'll have repeated whole conversations......several times over...lol :)
@TheCanucksnaphook @-Keon Hi Ho Silver, away!!......I feel the need....the need for speed!....Kid's a Beaut and only gonna get better. :)
@Jay_Berg You assume he wouldn't have made the team.....this is not a certainty. I still maintain that if a player is mentally and physically ready to play in the NHL, that's where they should play. Nobody on this board has the required information to make an informed decision, when it comes to a player's development path.....I'll leave it up to Mgmt.
1 day, 19 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Jay_Berg He was speaking in terms of skill, when comparing to Rielly. If Nylander shows well enough at Camp, like Reilly, he'll make the team.
@Jay_Berg Meh....I don't think Mgmt knows what they're doing with him yet.....we shall see at Camp.
@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe Ha.....Dream on!.....lol :)
@Burtonboy @Great Dane Sure does.....Arb is never a good thing, always gets nasty and they really should try and avoid it.
@Burtonboy @Jay_Berg Agreed......now that Gards is signed and not trade bait, they've moved on to Mgmt....gotta get those Leafs fan hits
@hoolihan @wendelsway1 @MaxwellHowe I guess it just depends on whether or not you see Gards as a young, up and coming Dman who is part of our core going forward. I happen to think he is, has shown flashes of brilliance, is still developing and hasn't reached his full potential yet.....again, time will tell.
1 day, 20 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Mind Bomb Good Morning MB!
@hoolihan @MaxwellHowe I think we'll be loving this contract before the end of the season.....time will tell
@Burtonboy @Jay_Berg LMAO! You're cracking me up today, Bboy! McLean's a real Frigger!....lol :)
@hoolihan While you're entitled to your opinion......it's wrong!...lol :) Hi ho Silver!
@Burtonboy @wendelsway1 @CanuckUKinToronto Definitely the way to go, if Franson isn't moved. As much as I want him gone, I go back and forth as to what Mgmt will do with him. Phaneuf feeding Franson is just wrong....I'm thinking if we can see this, one of Carlyle's Asst. Coaches should see this, as well.
@CanuckUKinToronto @wendelsway1 I'm thinking Franson is moved before Camp. but Mgmt may feel you can never have too many Dmen....I'd move him....
So what you Guys think.....Shanny and Nono done yet?
@Burtonboy @Yaknowwhat Can't wait to see him with the big boys at Camp.
1 day, 21 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
Good Morning Gents.....Cheers, Bboy.....all those friggers were wrong about Gards....lol....I'm looking at you HH.....Gards is a keeper!....lol :)
A great read, as always, Anthony. We are definitely on the Shanahan Highway........get on board, or get left in the dust...lol Can't wait for the season to start :)
2 days, 14 hours ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
@BlueSmoke @MaxwellHowe @wendelsway1 Has Nonis come out and said they are trading anybody?.....unless Polak is playing his off side, Franson doesn't fit. He may still be traded yet.....time will tell.
2 days, 19 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@Mcost61 Good Morning, Sir!
@BlueSmoke @MaxwellHowe @wendelsway1 I don't share your opinion of Franson.....IMO, he is what he is...and we can do better.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe LOL...DUBAS, DUBAS, DUBAS....in my best Jan Brady voice......might as well join in...lol :)
@MaxwellHowe @wendelsway1 I don't think they'll have any trouble signing Gards before Camp.
@TheCanucksnaphook @wendelsway1 Oh yum.....Chipotle. :)
Good Morning Gents......great day for a trade....or a Gardiner signing.....GO LEAFS :)
