@Luke_R If there is anyone on hockey twitter I hate more than Burtch, I haven't met him yet. This guy is a fucking idiot.

@StanSmith He was an excellent skater at one point. What are you talking about?
@Bruffins @Ian from Etobicoke @darthNihilus it's reality. He's getting the McCabe treatment and that doesn't get better, it gets worse.
@MaxwellHowe Frattin, Ashton, Bodie, Percy, Nylander, Leivo all added back into a lineup recently. So many players up and down from the Leafs+Nylander circus.
@T K O @Ian from Etobicoke it's easy to look at the past draft, with the players in the NHL, or not, and ripping up their respective leagues, and then looking at still-growing 17 year olds that are being heavy projected for their future talent, not their current talent.
The 2013 draft looks amazing vs the 2014 draft, etc.
There's maybe 3 cornerstone pieces in the last draft. Ekblad looks really good, Reinhart couldn't crack the Sabres, has no discernible stand-alone talent you can hang you hat on, Draisaitl isn't much to write home about, Bennett looks really good (but injured), Dal Colle, Virtanen, Fleury (yuck), Nylander, Ehlers, Ritchie are nice, secondary pieces.
Not professing to be a draft expert, but there's better cornerstone players in this draft. More really good centers, more really good defenceman. Excluding generational talents doesn't really prove a point at all. It's just removing the 2 best players from a draft.
There's probably too much hype around this draft and it being compared to the 2003 draft (debatably the best draft of all time). I think what people are saying is it's the best draft in a decade, but the last comparable happens to be the best of all time.
@T K O @Ian from Etobicoke The drafts are no where close to the same.

@darthNihilus You're overrating Dion. He's a top 30 defenceman in the league, but he's getting paid a ton and he's getting progressively slower. It's a huge issue. He's 29, and we know what happens when people, let alone athletes, hit 30.
Dion's contract length make him unattractive. He's OK right now for $7m, it's in 2-3 years when he won't be able to skate and being boo'd off the ice in Toronto that's the issue. It's already started.
@T K O Remove Ekblad and Reinhart if you are doing that.
@Habskilla I hope you're GM in my division.
@Whalz You don't watch enough AHL games. This is what the hockey looks like. The really good guys don't play in the AHL, the go right to the NHL. It's how it works.

@Top Jimmy Jamaican shower?
@Mitch92 No one gives a fuck about the captaincy except fans. You have a leadership ground of 5 or more players. Your best player is a player that everyone looks up to naturally, and that (hopefully) is the hardest working player on the team.
@Top Jimmy Crush it up and snort it?
@hometeem you have to embrace it or you'll go insane.

@traNsplantEdneWfie @LN-093 No one cares.
5 days, 10 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Tank Battles of Ontario
@LN-093 @Ian from Etobicoke @traNsplantEdneWfie The team has a leadership problem. Non of their current forwards are leaders, where it's significantly easier to lead from and spark a team. Maybe Lupul is, but he's injured most of the season. Kessel? JVR? Bozak? Kadri? Clarkson? None of their best players are leaders.
@Xxxxxnew While they're drowning, they're getting thrown anchors right now (judging by LeBrun tweets)
@traNsplantEdneWfie no one gives a shit about the C, only fans.
@Jay31 He is/was never coming here. There was/is a 0% chance of that happening. He's leveraging the Leafs to get a bigger pay raise and more authority on roster decisions with the Wings.

@Tyler You should check this site out instead http://forums.canadiancontent.net/ probably a better spot to blather on about politics.
@GibsonLPStudio What do you expect? Nonis ran one team and did exactly nothing (hence the name No-No), Shanahan has never ran a hockey team before and Dubas' was running a small time OHL team on the back of Corsi, won exactly nothing, got destroyed in the playoffs, etc.
Of course this mgmt group doesn't know what they're doing. Mark and Dale Hunter have a longer history of cheating and running a crooked operation, by getting players to commit to a College and then scooping them as a late rounder when they renege on their initial pledge to College to play for London. Wor$t kept $ecret in hockey.
@Savo43 You're an idiot.
@dlb, just dlb @Ian from Etobicoke
Bozak has the most important forward's position. That is a mess.

@hometeem @Omac13 spelled Rielly
@Hammertownleaffan @DCDC @Omac13 no it wouldn't.
Why are they showing tape from Minnesota game? What does this fucking matter?
@Omac13 Ridiculous nonsense.
@Omac13 @Xxxxxnew ROR for Dion is a good trade for both sides. Johnson is a righty, Dion a lefty. Wouldn't mess with your pairings much at all.
@Dangle_My_Berries Kypreos and MacLean are the worst in the business. Not even a contest right now. Build around a 5'8 winger? There's a reason MacLean isn't in the business anymore. He's a fucking moron.

"From what I've seen of Schenn, he's nothing but a teddy bear in comparison." - You
Then you're shown footage of him being a guy that can score 20goals (40 points), hit hard and fight, and then you start talking about Colton Orr?
What a loser that Schenn is.
@traNsplantEdneWfie It's OK not to know anything about hockey, but it's another to spew stupid commentary about players you know nothing about. Schenn a teddy bear?

@Cali...Leaf Stop it
@FRyan 'A lot of people' are stupid
@ProfessorRance Mantha's their top prospect. They love him and there is a 0% chance they would include him in a trade.
@WesternDP What fucking idiot would say Nylander is being showcased?
@Cameron19 @Ian from Etobicoke @Mitch92 @Top Jimmy It's amazing that some of these guys can't explain what is happening and why. The fans regurgitate what's being said by the analyst, who's wrong, and it helps perpetuate myths and nonsense.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Sunday Mashup: On the road again
@Mitch92 @Cameron19 @Top Jimmy That was Booth's man. Dion is responsible for covering points and net front now? Sucks when the 'analysts' don't know what they're talking about.
@Top Jimmy He's a 6'3 shoot first center. Something closer to Carter.
