@Leafs2 Isles1 Drafting Biggs when Saad was still available, trading Tlusty and Stralman for nothing... claiming he could make a trade to draft John Tavares... when he said that he ticked me off.

@Dogger Just my opinion... I would not want Kessel on NYI and have that team become a powerhouse. Ideally I would aim to trade him to the west. But that's just my opinion.

@hometeem do you mean to say you don't like that he called the Leafs a junior team?

@NinetyThree Agreed. Unless the trade is totally lopsided in our favour I wouldn't trade the guy, Kadri either, there are some bright spots here. Bernier's play has dipped because he doesn't care... there's nothing to play for. Which is actually alarming because that's a very Maple Leafs thing to do.... I dunno. I would rather keep the guy versus trade him and then get back something we don't know about and have to assess... we kind of know what Bernier is already and this team needs some sort of stability.... it starts from the net and out IMO

Marlies getting closer... at the very least they are keeping pace. AHL playoffs will be incredibly beneficial to the young guys.

@Xxxxxnew I guess having a single owner would also help this franchise, some stability would be a welcome change

@ProfessorRance What if we don't get those young assets this off-season? It may take some more time for the right deal to come along. I wouldn't trade Phaneuf or Kessel just to trade them... the return has to make sense.

@peterbleafs JVR is a 30 goal scorer who is just entering his prime.... no matter what way you look at it. He's not soft that's Mason Raymond you are thinking of.

@HHT @FrankFerrant @peterbleafs @MLHS_Luke If we trade JVR we keep Kessel. Can't trade both those guys if you ask me (which you didn't)

@HHT @peterbleafs @MLHS_Luke wait.... so you want to trade a young player who is on a cheap deal for another 3-4 years for a player who will potentially take 3-4 years to develop and is not a guaranteed 60 point player? and if they get to that to point they will command more $$

I would only trade JVR if its an absolute steal. He is one of the best players in the league when you take his cap number into consideration

Tavares, Stamkos, Pacioretty are in there with him as far as value

@Pent_House I suspect many of them made extra by working gigs like construction sites, they get like $60-$80 an hour to just stand there.

@Savo43 @Builder Lego I was thinking that for a while too... seems like we'd need to take salary back so a top prospect and a roster player along with that pick.

@RememberSalming @sniperstar It's not a big deal. I know people who worked for the Marlies and the stories they told me about Kadri when he was there were no different than any other young rich kid in Toronto. I've heard of hockey guys doing worse. Just the maturing process for a young man, glad to see Shanahan come out and talk about it.

@mtommy

I don't think Gustavsson was that bad, he was just injured more than half the time and for some reason he was expected to be the starting goalie having never played in NA before. Good backup as patience has proven in Detroit. 

Komarov was a draft pick not UFA

@mcloki on the positive, the leafs did get two picks for Winnik, plus getting Leipsic in the Nashville deal, a 6th for Jokinen a 5th for Holzer... at least it is a start...  I think they will go hard for more picks come draft/off-season

@Great Dane Toronto isn't getting in the top 2. 5-8 ... again. But I'd like to see them squeeze one more first rounder out of someone for a Phaneuf, Kessel, Lupul, Bozak, Gardiner? type trade.

But yes European scouting with the Leafs has been much better than NA. Hunter could change that, especially if they acquire more picks for the draft.... I wouldn't even mind if they trade for future picks as well.

@Marleafs They came so close against Norfolk a few years back... I still remember that goal that went in after the puck took a weird bounce off the end-boards, which should have been an icing to begin with.

@Airfreshener @FrankFerrant Same. That's what I love about Blue Jays games. As long as I don't swear or yell anything racist or homophobic it's all good. 

One time I called Phaneuf "newfie" and little did I know there was a Newfoundlander Sens fan sitting behind me... he didn't appreciate it and I was confused, Leafs ended up winning on a Kessel hat-trick

@cryptotho Yeah I got that once too... and I was sitting in the 200s. Bunch of fuckin tools running that place if you ask me. 

Execs MUST create a new in-arena experience for the fans and for the team. I think the crowd players a major factor in setting the tone for home games. Look at Chicago, Boston, Montreal, Philly, Winnipeg!

None of this being able to hear someone's cell phone drop on air bullshit.
