Of all the talk of change, the only thing I see different is a competitive 3rd line. RC still wont play the 4th line, first line is hit or miss, 2nd line is brutal. Things wont change in Toronto until they have the balls to make changes in the top 6

Would love Philly to be stuck with Vinny...maybe they would be forced to trade someone like Simmonds or Voracek.  Simmonds would look awesome alongside Lupul and Kadri.

Pretty solid moves so far.  Would like to see Franson and Reimer packaged for a top 6 winger though.  If Nonis can make that happen he will have pulled off one of the more successful off seasons the Leafs have had in years.

@J_hardt @DeclanK @Bryan93 I agree. It would be nice if they could put a package together for Eberle and the 3rd

Just rejoining the site, been a lurker for too long!  Have a real bad feeling we wont be seeing much of a culture change this summer

I am pretty happy with the moves so far this offseason. Leafs were a hard team to play against last season and I think they will be even more difficult this year. Need to find a good 3rd line winger that can replace what Komarov did and a top 4 dman but things are coming together.  I have read some articles with people suggesting that the Leafs are not as skilled as last year however if I had a choice to take this team or last years team going into game 7 against the Bruins I would definitely pick this one.

I think Kadri and Franson are both going to be at least 3.5 a season.  Somebody must be on their way out

@Ensign if you can package him for a number 1C it might save us from having to deal Reilly or Gardiner

So maybe the best news that could happen today is Nonis not signing a Center.  Could mean a trade is in the works.  If Weiss, Bozak or Riberio are signed that pretty much solidifys our top 3

Realistically if the Leafs want a true number 1C they are going to have to give up one of Reilly or Gardiner.  Who would everyone rather keep?

If the Leafs throw 6 mil at Clarkson what does that do to Kadri's negotiations? Kadri had 20 more pts then Clarkson last year with 44 pts.  Clarksons highest point total ever was 46..... You would think Kadris camp would want at least 5 million.

@Cameron19 I think it is, Bobby Ryan could easily fit into that top line.  Sign Clarkson for 2nd line

@Pent_House Yep! Thats why I think there must be a trade to bring a number 1 guy in.  Neither Bozak or Weiss is a true number 1.  Both would work as a number 2 guy but if the Leafs really want to take the next step they have to get that number 1 guy to play with Kessel

Cant forget they also have RFA's to sign with Kadri and Franson looking to get big raises.  Kadris performance last year probably signaled the end of Grabovski

@Mind Bomb I liked him too, but give me 20,000 and I'll skate around out there like a lunatic and get my bell rung every shift.  Just too much money for what he brings.  I like this move if it is to bring in a true #1 guy.  If it is just to sign Bozak or Weiss I dont know if the leafs are much better then they were

So as of now, the top UFA centers are Bozak, Weiss, Filpulla, Riberio......if we have to take one who do we want?

@Reimocerous Agreed, if they knew they wanted to keep Bozak they could have done this earlier.  I am guessing they have come to terms with Weiss or a trade is about to go down

@wiski @Cameron19 @Mind Bomb Would we be willing to give up two 1sts, a 2nd and 3rd to offer sheet him though??  A trade would have to include either Gardiner or Reilly

@Cameron19 Such BS, as if there hasnt been friends on teams before that were split up.  Never heard people saying Crosby was leaving Pittsburgh when Armstrong was traded.  If Kessel leaves I could see it being because he wants to be away from the spotlight of toronto

Could be a interesting weekend in St. Louis.  Have to sign both Stewart and Pietrangelo.  Pietrangelo is looking for at least 7 million.  Wonder if any team will throw a offer sheet his way

Chris Stewart might be somebody to keep an eye on.  He seems to really have turned around his game the last 2 seasons. 18 goals last year.  A Toronto boy too
