1 week, 1 day ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
I'm loving the speed of our team
Ashton has success in the AHL because he's bigger than most opponents. That isn't true in the NHL. I think it'll be hard for Ashton to be an every day NHL'er.
1 week, 1 day ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference
@docmma @dlb Mad
Easy stuff first
Slow change isn't a bad thing. It should make it easier to identify what is wrong with the team/franchise if the Leafs face-plant next season. And it gives Shanahan time to find the best people rather than the best available right now.
Me too, he sounds smart and his work ethic seems second to none.
Dubas took a small shot at CORSI: "counting shots is nothing new"
People here criticize Nonis for throwing in a conditional 7th round pick for Frattin. Imagine trading Neil and Niskanen for.... Goligoski +
Traikos is modestly impressed with Gauthier:

2 weeks, 6 days ago on Maple Leafs’ Assistant Coach announcement to come next week
But no way Avs want Lupul at 5.25m. ROR won't get much more than that.
Word is Leafs might walk away from Franson after arbitration making him UFA.
Definitely not. But there are only so many contracts available each year so mgt might like to limit the number of invitees accordingly.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Friday Mashup: As the smoke clears for the Toronto Maple Leafs
I don't know if this answers your question but a team is only allowed to have 50 players under contract:
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Petri Kontiola Signs with Maple Leafs on a 1-year, $1.1 million deal
This moves seems to agree with Nonis' declared plan (circa 2013). Sign a bunch of cheaper guys and let them fight it out for ice-time.
Scored 20 goals once for Florida (2010).
Was above 50% on face-offs last year
The Leafs 2009 roster continues to cast a looonnngggg shadow. Starting from zero really sucked.
With Kontiola and Komarov as possible centers, do the Leafs bother signing Legwand?
He shoots left though so he'd be on his off-wing. Carlyle won't like that ;)
I can't imagine Detroit would make the trade.
Tatar is a LW who shoots left I believe.
Forget the glove hand, rebound control is the knock against him around the league.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on James Reimer Opts for Salary Arbitration
Those are great numbers!
Mirtle has an estimate at the beginning of this podcast.
Burlington is on the rise, watch out!
just left the gym
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Dave Nonis Free Agent Day Media Address
no but that would probably be an amazing outcome
Too soon? Perhaps most likely to be the next Clarkson. And Orpik might be the new Komisarek.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Leo’s Back: Maple Leafs sign Komarov to 4-year, $11.8 million contract
Salary cap inflation
@Loric76 @Bruce Gamble
He's working on something! We'll have to wait.
I like how Nonis doesn't trade first round draft picks
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Maple Leafs sign Stephane Robidas to 3-year, $9-million deal
I think they got Frattin for the second line
lol - both
actually I think its Franson and Ranger
At 38 years old I hope not!
Polak is the new and improved Mark Fraser
Typical July 1st
I'd like to see Komarov at center
He has been accused of being a peripheral player.
Yes... but I can't believe we are paying those two $8m a year
I like the trade because Frattin can play on the second line with Kadri and Lupul. D'Amigo would not have been able to do that.
Dreger posted a few days ago the Leafs were not speaking with Ranger. I don't think mgt considers him an option.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Free Agency Day: Maple Leafs Targets
what is a dunlop?
I hope this is the beginning of a more optimistic MLHS era.
RFAs with no contract
Leafs can get another asset out of this
LOL! so negative
