@Alec Brownscombe @Dan39 @HHT @Jay_Berg As you know, I did not suggest it happened.
1 day, 11 hours ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto
@Alec Brownscombe @Dan39 @HHT @Jay_Berg Particularly with the dollars today, Alec - it has changed dramatically from the 90s for example
@Alec Brownscombe @Dan39 @HHT @Jay_Berg Playing hockey for large audiences makes them celebrities and objects of intrigues and so on - you can't separate one from the other.
It's like saying actors shouldn't have to be celebrities... Yeah, they are and they should.
And every last one of them knew it going in, too.
@ninepaces This is the note on the timeline we look back at, for sure.
The day the team begged for mercy from the media.
@HHT @Dan39 @Jay_Berg The tweet suggested something that wasn't rumoured sorry, there were other rumours about something else that were widespread and variously reported by different sources. As I said, I'm not getting into it.
I just don't feel sorry for celebrities in general - you make millions off your celebrity, you take the good with the bad. That's all.
1 day, 12 hours ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto
@Alec Brownscombe @Dan39 @Jay_Berg Take their humanity away - come on, somebody said so and so slept with so and so - it should just be brushed off as ridiculous and not commented on, The fact that they went ballistic over it, perhaps tells us something.
@Alec Brownscombe @Dan39 @Jay_Berg They are celebrities, people say shit about them all the time. It goes with the territory - they need to have thick skin about it.
@Radar O'Rielly Who cares? We don't want the high end guys, we want the bargain bins guys who want to come outperform on expiring deals and get resigned for money and term next year.
1 day, 21 hours ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
@colino17 @mcloki I think they should do it - it would be a classy move for guys that put it all on the line for us.
@Burtonboy Man, I liked Knoedel. I guess they just want to get him more ice.
@mcloki That would be awesome. Do we play the Habs again?
@TheLoovTrain @Radar O'Rielly Booth would be a beast in the AHL - I doubt he makes it through waivers, though.
We do need guys like him though that can throw the body. We already have a lot of small guys and more young guys coming that need someone to have their back for confidence.
@sniperstar @Radar O'Rielly He's not that tough for the AHL though. I kinda think we need to keep Devane or McLaren or both! I'd be in favour of adding a middlewieght, as well.
@HHT It's a joke based on strong rumours about the same thing. Lupul will be hearing about this on the ice, can only imagine the merciless chirping he'll get
2 days, 11 hours ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@HHT Hopefully Lupul stays away from his wife.
@cryptotho Missed out on Winnik - other GM's were stunned at that return... Nonis did well on that. You could argue maybe we should have got more for Franson, but even that deal at the time was not expected to yield a first and there was significant risk in waiting. Santo was not supposed to get a second and I feel we got the equivalent with Leipsic.
Overall, Nonis has done really well on the deals he made - not even factoring in Clarkson - and the only slight complaint if any is that he didn't do more good deals.
2 days, 13 hours ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@416TML @Dan39 @ninepaces Of course he's replaceable - that goes without saying. The only debate is whether he is totally worthless or has some value. Clearly, after the trade, he has some value. I think if he hadn't gotten injured, we might have got a 4th for him.
2 days, 14 hours ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@416TML @Dan39 @ninepaces You're an idiot, dude. I have season seats to the Marlies - I've been watching him for years... And that is totally irrelevant because he's played the last 30 games or something in the NHL. As I said, in the last few weeks he's been one of our better defenseman.
@Luke_R Oh man, they needed Phaneuf in the worst way - what happened?
@MaxwellHowe It's usually right before the first round, right?
@NiagaraFallsThunder @GeorgeCastanza @Marlies Man @FRyan Yeah, won't allow them to fail and prove him wrong. So there you go Mcdavid to Arizona.
@ninepaces @416TML What are you guys talking about ? He was one of our better defenseman the last few weeks and he was only 27... Late bloomer.
@Marlies Man @FRyan Yeah, because the league has always helped out the Leafs... Oh wait
@FRyan Great planning in place!
@416TML Holzer was actually playing really well.
Phaneuf and Bozak can start packing now? The trade deadline just passed...
@TheColborneUltimatum Need to get in first - three big games this wknd!
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Dan39 @mcloki Just being facetious. Not a statement on what I think should have been done, just frustrated.
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @mcloki @Dan39 I don't care, I want Strome.
Get on with it Mr Potato.
"Our strategy was to keep Kessel, Phaneuf, Bozak, Lupul and win some games before the end of the year"
@BPsotka @Ze_theLeafsFan I'd like to see Lindstrom get some PP time.
2 days, 14 hours ago on Maple Leafs trade Olli Jokinen to St. Louis for Joakim Lindstrom & conditional sixth round pick
@Marlies Man No.
@Ze_theLeafsFan Too many goalies.
@Airfreshener @Dan39 The Lupul tweet - Google Lupul Phaneuf Wife Tweet
@zoidbergman Why would we do that?
Well we didn't get all the trades we wanted, but at least we got an inappropriate tweet : )
@mcloki Sadly, one of our toughest players.
2 days, 15 hours ago on Maple Leafs trade Olli Jokinen to St. Louis for Joakim Lindstrom & conditional sixth round pick
@MaxwellHowe He was brought in there to do even worse than a bad goalie. So, you can guarantee he's going to be motivated to disprove the people that slapped him in the face. I hope it works for him...
2 days, 16 hours ago on Deadline Thread II: Dion Phaneuf to Detroit Rumours
@Nylanderthal @phaneufoundlander @BoneChompski @Leafs_17 Riiight.
@phaneufoundlander @BoneChompski @Leafs_17 80% chance it will not go to them. I don't think the NHL will let McMoney go to Buffalo or Arizona - just too much lost revenue for the next 15 years.
@TheColborneUltimatum @Dan39 Yeah, top three picks are up for lotto instead of only number one.
@TheColborneUltimatum Well the lottery system for next year is already addressing it...
@BoneChompski @Leafs_17 If we don't do what they've done for next year then this mgmt is just wasting our time.
@phaneufoundlander @Dan39 I thought he looked like our best centre last few games - I guess that says something more about our team than his value though.
Where are the trades? At least deal Jokinen, but really hoping for one of Lupul/Bozak/goalie. Booth if he's worthless, I don't mind keeping. Phanuef, Kessel we can keep to until the draft when he might be worth more.
2 days, 17 hours ago on Deadline Thread II: Dion Phaneuf to Detroit Rumours
@Nylanderthal @FRyan So much smaller. Meaner, though. I saw him him elbow Dupuis on the marlies at the end of the game, for no reason, right from behind and break his jaw/nose. Mean bastard, exactly what we need
2 days, 21 hours ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
@Radar O'Rielly Hopefully the server doesn't melt. If Kessel gets traded, all bets are off though.
@DGkiller98 Please be Phaneuf.
@MaxwellHowe There has to be full rpotection in one form or another.
@DGkiller98 Imagine what we can get for Polak right now... And should have been Holzer on the block, too.
