@Greg Fenton @Leafs rule @mcloki It's not always the goalies fault though, especially if your team isn't putting the puck in the net...hopefully the coaches do put more of an emphasis on it this year in practices though.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Toronto Maple Leafs’ Cody Franson Signs 1 Year Deal
@Mind Bomb @Captain Morgan @reenergized Yep...and Randy told him to put some Absorbine Junior on it and get back out there!!! LOL
@Mind Bomb @reenergized Didn't Kessel cut himself shaving and had to miss Carlyle's bag skates???
@Alec Brownscombe @Captain Morgan @Burtonboy The maximum that can be offerred by another team is 7 years, so if you wanna go that route then we match it.
@Mind Bomb @Captain Morgan He already makes 6.5 a year, so just a moderate increase really.
@Burtonboy @Captain Morgan @Alec Brownscombe A long term deal is 5-8 years....so it's not like they are insulting him.
@Alec Brownscombe @Captain Morgan Even if you make it 8.5, it won't hurt us....I still think that five years is in favour of both parties.
Let's see now...Leafs have 40 Million next year to sign players...Phaneuf at 7M for five years, Kessel at 7M for five years....Kulemin at 3M for 3 years...Bolland at 3.5 for 3 years and Franson at 4.5 for 5 years...that leaves 15M to sign Reimer, Ranger, Gardiner, Fraser, McClement and Mason....even more if we get rid of Liles contract (which I'm sure we will)....that's not so bad at all.
@GeorgeCastanza @Captain Morgan @Pent_House Yep...I think that we are better off not doing that sort of thing at this time!! LOL
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Fight Night in Toronto: Preseason Post Game #5 – Leafs 5 vs. Sabres 3
@Pent_House Yeah, Kadri says that he was going and Lupul grabbed him and it was too late to stop Clarkson.
@totalimmortal000 He did swing at him, but Kessel got his gloves up and are you going to wait to see if a man that big hits you first??? I SAY NOT!!!!
I could not believe the events of last night....Scott is an amazing idiot and his coach must be three times stupider than that...they have now marked themselves for every team in the league to watch them and play goon hockey against...their few skilled players are now marked with huge targets....really, really not bright!!!
Also, to give Kessel a major penalty for attempting to injure is ridiculous...slashing at someones shin pads and skates in order to saveyourself from being hurt is preservation, not initiating an attempt to hurt someone else....poor officiating, poor coaching and poor decisions all around, including Clarkson, where his ehart was in the right place, but he was not even needed in that fray!!!
@Jantz Too many guys are not the same after concussions...it is a devastating injury for some people and they can't shake that feeling of peril after it...I like Liles and agree with everybody that he is a classy and team orientated man.I just don't know fi this is the place for him right now...expecially at the numbers he is making. Having said that though, I'm glad Nonis didn;t buy him out and I hope we can find a team that he will enjoy playing for and being on to continue his career.

@MollySweats @Burtonboy @rustynail No way we trade Kuli...he is a beast in board play and great defensively...will pop more goals this year I do think too. We need him....not so much Liles and his salary (nothing against him), but we have others to take his spot, where as not much to replace in the way of Kulemin.
@dlb eh @rustynail While he is big and lanky, he is not the most graceful skater and being able to stop, turn and make quick cuts, as well as skate backwards are prerequisites for a good penalty killer....heart and attitude are great, some physical aspects are there, but the mobility is the issue.
2 months, 4 weeks ago on Morning Mashup: Kadri, Hodgson on opposite sides of RFA spectrum
@TheCanucksnaphook @dlb eh Thank you again!! Tehy do have some NHL experience though and would be bonafide all ups, correct?
@rustynail I just got this....are you serious? Is he serious???? Did we do drug testing on the coaches?????
@TheCanucksnaphook @Jmessih They were on two differnt rinks at the same time too though, right?
