@Luke_R Staal would easily turn this team from medicore to good. Not contender, but good.

@Doorman When they said they were going to see him again around Christmas they meant because he'll be here for the WJC playing for Sweden
@NotSince67 @Luke_R Sounds like something Dubas may be up to.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Game Review: Game #4, Toronto Maple Leafs 3 vs. Colorado Avalanche 2 (OT)
@Black_Hawk @mtommy @Alec Brownscombe @TheLoovTrain @Leafs_17 Ahhh the dreams we come up with being Leaf fans :)
@nuttley4t3 hmmm I think I may agree with that. Couturier potentially has more years left than Staal and hasn't hit his ceiling yet. I like Staal but think he is going to cost too much in a trade with the Leafs in particular.
I would like to see them try Frattin - Ashton - Kozun as 4th line in one of the Detroit games coming up. It basically is an audition line so why not switch it up? Don't get me wrong I'm all for consistency, and I think that Kozun should be the mainstay on line 4 until they find the right duo to play with him.Also, maybe Robidas sit out for Gardiner ? I feel like Jake definitely needs to get into a game soon.
@Top Jimmy LOL c'mon man it isn't that inconceivable that these million dollar athletes are spending some of that money on that stuff. These are guys who were the golden boys all their lives and had access to things that some didn't.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Monday Mashup: Colorado Tuesday, Reimer Fine After Concussion Scare
@Bring the Cup Home @Jmessih I wouldn't be surprised. I've heard many stories about current and past Leafs players from reliable sources.
Fans need to stop showing up to games. Seriously, stop paying these outrageous prices. End of story.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Game Review: Game #2, Pittsburgh Penguins 5 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 2
@DeclanK Good news, Percy definitely didn't deserve to be scratched
2 weeks, 4 days ago on GDT: Game #2, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., CBC)
@FRyan Because the coaches were expecting Dion to overcome this on his own, rather than put him in a better position to not have to do so.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #9, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Red Wings 1
@Jay_Berg probably going to check that no one is eating his cookies
@Top Jimmy is that Dave Mustaine in your display? or is it whats his face from Van Halen? I can't tell
@Top Jimmy Frattin can be waived, he's just open to poachers, which I really doubt anyone is going to do given his track record over the past year. He will report to the Marlies and rediscover his game. BUT I can also see him staying up and being a healthy scratch while one of Orr/McLaren get sent down.
@Burtonboy I guess Randy has a soft spot for Frattin. Will be an interesting convo between the coaching staff and management about who goes where to start the season. I like Frattin too, I want him to succeed but maybe he needs some time with the Marlies again to gain some confidence.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on GDT: Preseason Game #9 – Toronto Maple Leafs vs Detroit Red Wings (7:53 p.m., SNET1)
@MaxwellHowe @ingy56 not to mention Blake "The Snake" Kessel
@loomx @dlb Mad Kinda like playing Phaneuf 25+ mins a night in mostly key defensive situations?
@Hmmm Is that in reference to Franson? I'm not trying to hate on the guy I just think that he is expendable.
@loomx @FrankFerrant I agree with the trade Franson sentiment. Let him build his value and see what he can be moved for.I guess they just wanted to see more of what Percy could do and let the big German rest. I'm glad for Holzer and Kozun if they indeed make the cut and stick.... they paid their dues.
Percy took Holzers spot for the time being?
@DeclanK @FrankFerrant @loomx @Bruce Gamble Well Ashton isn't gonna make the cut. Does he start then with Komarov and Leivo?
@rustynail @Knights2Leafs @Cameron19 Signing Clarkson instead of MacArthur, Leo was coming back either way.
@loomx @FrankFerrant @Jmessih Yeah it really doesn't matter they still get their NHL salary anyways. Who else do we keep up? Ashton hasn't earned anything. I guess Leivo and Frattin?
@loomx @Bruce Gamble Plus we gotta see who his linemates are actually going to be. Pre-season isn't conducive to chemistry in that way.
@Jmessih Those guys can be healthy scratches every night until we need one of them. Which will be once every like 20 games. I do think that goons are a necessary evil, to be used sparingly once every 3 months.
@Alec Brownscombe Booth looked pretty bad when he was playing too.
@vinoa @ParadePlanner True. Booth was pretty average as well. Certainly no Brandon Kozun.
@dlb Mad @Bobsyouruncle Frattin will clear waivers and start with the Marlies. Can't see anyone picking him up.
If any one player has clearly earned a spot on this roster it's Brandon Kozun. Also, Polak is way better than I thought he was... let's hope this all translates into the regular season. Robidas has looked decent.
@loomx @Burtonboy Kessel - Bozak - LupulFrattin - Kadri - JVRClarkson - Holland - KomarovWinnik - Santorelli - BoothKontiola, AshtonThis is the lineup I would experiment with in Game 1. Frattin and Clarkson could change around.

@lukethenuke @FrankFerrant Interesting. Thanks.
3 months, 1 week ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
@lukethenuke Where did this bit of info come from?
@N_Leafs @FrankFerrant @Cloud09For sure. That's what Mark Fraser did so well. I think guys like Komarov, Frattin and Clarkson will help in that regard. Hopefully Polak too. I don't want to see an opposing player get close to Bernier after a whistle. Fuck that.
@Xxxxxnew Yeah Mike Richards went flying into him. Remember that Umberger on Campbell hit? Oh man. Or was it Campbell on Umberger? Either way
@N_Leafs @Cloud09 If a goon is going to be iced he should be used strategically. Let's say a player on the opposing team takes liberties with one of our guys and a "fighter" isn't dressed that night. The next time we face that team said fighter would be in the line-up for the purpose of retaliation.
Franson for Bailey? Hell yes.
3 months, 1 week ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
@MaxwellHowe Mac signed elsewhere? I honestly want to sign Brodeur on a one-year deal.
4 months ago on Dave Nonis on Primetime Sports
@djamon @FrankFerrant ok. you do that. he is better fit for this team than Mason Raymond
@FRyan and yet he continues to play. what a warrior!
@lukethenuke I like. He basically takes Raymond's spot for slightly cheaper. He is less of a bitch than Raymond too which is welcome on this team. I really do think being back on the Leafs will rejuvenate him.
@Dangle_My_Berries I would like to see Holzer make the jump to the big club as a bottom pairing guy. Gotta start developing these picks, same goes for D'Amigo and Holland. Would be nice to see some guys from within the system surprise at camp and become part of this teams future.
5 months, 1 week ago on Toronto Marlies announce Round 3 Schedule vs. Texas Stars
@Bruffins @Xxxxxnew Taylor Hall is better than Erik Johnson as far as being a 1st overall pick
I really want the Leafs to draft Sam Bennett....
5 months, 2 weeks ago on First Line Centers & Trading For Florida’s First Overall Pick
@Bring the Cup Home LOL you are asking for too much.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Leo Komarov set to return to the NHL
Franson + Lupul + 1st. Something like that. I like Lupul, but we can't really trade Clarkson if we want any sort of return so...
@HeatherRickAkin Phaneuf isn't going anywhere.
I like the idea of playing Komarov with Kadri, I think it makes perfect sense. Kadri's skill would help elevate Komarov's lacklustre offensive numbers, Komarovs physical play will help Kadri get into games physically. They would also draw a high number of penalties, in theory at least. Hope this happens!
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan it was a good one. keeping pace with the previous ones for sure.
6 months ago on Kozun scores twice, Marlies take 2-0 series lead
@Gozo Well, for one, a replacement hasn't been found yet. Shanny has to do his evaluation of this entire organization it's gonna take him a while. I don't expect anything to happen until after playoffs. Leafs should be busy come draft time.
6 months, 1 week ago on Toronto Maple Leafs: Buy Low, Sell High
@The_Polish_Cannon So you're saying Gilmour will be the next coach? I can get on board with that.
