@gjdevlin @Bring the Cup Home @.Kong. Kudos to Shanny for giving Kadri a talking to, it seems to have worked.

@hometeem @FrankFerrant and as we all know, due to history, this team has imploded between February-March. So let's hope they just keep stacking points.

One game at a time

@Jmessih These are the types of fights that I think are good for the game, just two guys pissed off in a heated moment not the staged BS we were seeing for years.

@mcloki @Dangle_My_Berries @Burtonboy Well no we shouldn't start doing it to other stars in the league. We just need to send a clear message to OV and finish every single check against him, give him no free ice out there.... Leo needs to take a nice clean run at him, as should Phaneuf since he is the captain of this team.

@Kadrific and he would get the highest return of any player on our team.

@Cloud09 @Kadrific Yeah that is the true test. If he keeps it up I think we can see a switch to be made... put Bozak with JVR and Clarkson/Santo and Kadri with Kessel and whoever... Lupul? Use Bozak JVR Kessel on the PP exclusively and the odd in-game change here and there

@hometeem @Dogger Santorelli and Winnik are key pieces to what this team is doing. They are the types of players, along with Komarov and Polak who work their assess off every game. I think you sign these guys for cheap and keep them around to help groom the young leafs and set and example for the team of how to play hockey and not be lazy... and we can still score.

I'd resign Winnik and Santo to similar deals something like 4 years 2-2.5m
Franson will be at least 5 (trade Gardiner) hopefully not 6
Bernier... 4 for 4?
Kadri.... depends could be 4.5 and hopefully not 6

@Kadrific Yeah because we have all been conditioned to know that the Leafs can implode at ANY moment as we have seen for the past 4 years

@MaxwellHowe @Yaknowwhat  you're right, someone else will pay it for sure. I'd trade Gardiner (possibly at the draft) for cap purposes at least, if he ends up having a good season... which he tends to do towards the end each year.

What about Bernier? Kadri?

Is Booth able to play centre? If so... Kozun - Booth - Panik as 4th line?

I would prefer to do Kozun - Santorelli - Panik and try Booth on the wing with Kadri and Lupul, but Carlyle's comments would lead me to believe Santo is gonna be playing the wing for a while. Damn there are a lot of forward options this team actually does have depth, hope it pays off in the end.

@Xxxxxnew yeah he purposely went off track to make it look like an accident, maybe he didn't intend it to be that bad but he intended to make contact for sure. He was sour that Finland eliminated Russia in Sochi.

I liked Carlyle's post game comments, defended his players (Kadri, Holzer, Komarov) and got a few laughs. I like the experiment with Kadri on the point (thank you Steve Spott) they should keep going with it a few more games given the instant success.

@hometeem @Optimustic @Burtonboy yeah not to mention they also play the PP together. I want to see Kadri with Kessel again for a few more games.

I think Kessel - Kadri - Komarov would be an interesting experiment

@Burtonboy I like the idea of Naz on the point. What does weak side mean? I think Dion is better on the right side he scores most of his PP goals from that spot. 

Second unit - Franson Gardiner Lupul Holland Clarkson? Sounds weak lol but I  do think Franson and Dion need to be split up. I would prefer Phaneuf Rielly and Franson Gardiner as PP D

@Burn_the_Loov_Boats Give him a shot with Phil and JVR let's see what happens, the first unit/first line clearly hasn't been able to get it going 5 on 4. Split them up for a while.

@dlb Mad @phaneufoundlander If we didn't sign Robidas...  Holzer has earned a spot. He's paid his dues with the Marlies for what 4 seasons? He's a right handed shot, he isn't slow, he's physical... he and Gardiner would make a great pairing.

@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe I love Kadri and Komarov as a duo. Uncle Leo helps to bring out Kadri's nasty side. Also, Kadri should be on the PP with Phil and JVR. Bozak has been great don't get me wrong, but fuck switch it up a bit.

@Mcost61 @FrankFerrant  I heard someone say that a team is usually a reflection of their best players, and yeah I can see that with this team and Phaneuf/Kessel.

@Forever17 @FrankFerrant That's too reactionary of a move. The players in Edmonton love him, Taylor Hall said it would be a tragedy if he were fired because of the teams poor play. Start with getting a real goalie before firing the coach. 

But hey if he does get fired I would welcome him with open arms behind the Leafs' bench.

@Forever17 I seriously doubt he gets fired, Edmonton is garbage not because of him. If they had a real goalie they wouldn't suck so hard.

@Potcy One thing I like about Burke is that he seems to have a little bit of Pat Quinn in him. Too bad he couldn't coach. 

3 weeks, 5 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Quinn tributes, Lupul and Booth set to return, Holzer recalled

Reply

Damn, reading this article and seeing all the tributes on sports media... makes me feel very grateful to have watched those teams. I was just a kid in those days but that was when I loved the Leafs and Quinn was the last coach who seemed to not only embody but to exude greatness in this franchise. I will never forget the two conference finals seasons and I will always hate Dominik Hasek and Arturs Irbe. 

Domi, Tucker, Roberts, that was my shit! Cujo.. Sundin riding with Mogilny just so many great memories. Was Yushkevich on those teams too? I remember that guy being a tough SOB

@Potcy @MaxwellHowe If they are giving up more goals than they are scoring I think it's relevant wouldn't you?

3 weeks, 6 days ago on Monday Mashup: Who gets the call?

Reply

@Potcy @MaxwellHowe Wait until they get trapped in their own zone a few times. They are fragile when it comes to the defensive zone. Bozak will cause the odd turnover here and there but they look lost most of the time.

@Potcy the great thing is those guys who you labelled reserves can fit in on any of 4 lines if needed

@Yan28 @kxbarillas @wendelsfist Does it really matter how he got into the league? I think the more important point is that he's managed to stay in the league for 5 years.

If RC insists on keeping the top line together (which I think he does) I'd like to see this:

JVR - Bozak - Kessel 
Lupul - Kadri - Komarov
Winnik - Holland - Clarkson
Booth - Santo - Panik

This should give him more trust in the 4th line and therefore more minutes (10 per game would be ideal)

On D:

Phaneuf - Franson (omg so slow but whatever)
Gardiner - Holzer
Rielly - Robidas


I think the problem is which D pairing do you throw with the top line? We know they can't exactly be counted on for their defensive abilities. The idea of JVR, Bozak, Kessel, Dion and Franson hemmed in their own zone kind of scares me.
