Trading a proven player for a draft pick is retarded. Gardiner is a good NHL defenceman with huge potential. The draft pick may or may not play in the NHL and may or may not have as much as an impact is Gardiner does.
Stupid trade proposals...

@dlb meh @HHT Gardiner, an NHL player who is already very good, to Edmonton for a 3rd overall pick who may play in the NHL and may be as good as Gardiner.

The team missed the playoffs, of course they need an upgrade in personnel. That's a pretty obvious statement. Your assessment of the team is off the mark by a mile, but you're welcome to your opinion, obviously.

@Zep2 @Ian from Etobicoke Whos' good on the Habs? Patches, Galy, Gallagher, Subban and Price. That's it.
@Burtonboy It was a mirage. They just happen to match up well with Boston.
The Leafs can handle the puck like that.
The most important thing in hockey (other than the obvious of scoring goals) is winning puck battles. You spend most of the game on the boards fighting for the puck and trying to win, win back or maintain possession. That's where the Leafs are perhaps the worst in the league (To my eyes). Leafs try and play in between the faceoff dots and the other teams are trying to play on the wall, because they know the Leafs are not a determined team.
Montreal is a smaller, less skilled team with worse defence and goaltending is a wash (the track record isn't there for Bernier yet, but he's on par with Price, IMO), yet the play a tough brand of hockey and every player is on board.
They're harder working, more committed to defence and actually provide back pressure.
The biggest difference in today's game vs 5 years ago is that every team plays with tons of backside pressure and give support to their defence.
Everyone says the Leafs need better defenceman, but they just need their forwards to commit to a team D philosophy that all the good teams buy into. The distance between FWDs and D on the Leafs is laughable.
If the coach can't get players to play properly (this isn't a talent thing, just an effort thing), then the team is not listening and he should not be coaching the team.
@ShiftyD We've been doing this since 2011.
@daniel marois @Ian from Etobicoke @Mattmark
If they can keep their core together and build the backend into something reasonable, they'll be winning cups in no time. Just unreal how good their top 9 is.
Duchene's contract kicks in next year from $3.5m to $6m
Landeskog's contract goes from $925,000 to $5,571,429.
O'Reilly's will go from $5 to $6.5m to be qualified.
Stastny is making $6.6m and will get that again—if not more.
@Mattmark ROR will need to be qualified at $6.5 and would be the highest paid player on the Avs. And pay Stastny $6+m to keep him in Colorado. I think they are a budget team, not a cap team.

There were also no injuries on defence and he himself made fun of his defensive play.

@loomx @Belfour20/JB-45People have a short memory. Sundin had his leadership questioned regularly and wanted him stripped of his Captaincy for Roberts. Just another year in Toronto.
You guys want Lupul as your Captain? He never plays because he's injured. How does it change anything?
@Burtonboy @wiskiIt's funny how no one wants to hear from the GM. Like Leiweke is the guy in charge of front office decisions now or something
@Jay31 It's a 3 zone game. You don't employ a 1-3-1 in transition, which is where a lot of the game is played. Off a controlled breakout, maybe. It's a very small point of the game.

@Cameron19 @leafersutherland"And the problem is, that with Kessel being the leader, it shapes the way
our forwards play a lot of the time. Unfortunately, his act, like
Kane's, is one that nobody can really follow." This a million times. How many times can most players show up for 2 shifts and win a game? The Kessel's and Kanes are unique talents, but the effort level has to be set from a centerman that does it all. Kessel can't be "the guy".
@Cloud09 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan@Dangle_My_Berries
It's been do or die for 2 weeks right now and the team has rolled over more often than not. That much is clear.

Devane is not an NHLer at this stage. Biggs is 2 seasons minimum away from getting a sniff at the Leafs. He's a 4th liner/healthy scratch that AHL level and he's going to come in and make an NHL team? Wake up and give your head a shake, he's not helping in the next 2-3 seasons, if he makes the NHL at all.
There is no saving grace coming from the Marlies; the best they can hope for is having a very good 4th line that grooms them into 3rd and maybe 2nd line players.
D'Amgio-Holland-Ashton is the best you can hope for right now on a 4th line and it won't be this coaching staff that gives them a fair shake. Carlyle is a mouth breathing hick that can't discern plugs from talent. He dressed 3 injured players last night, one of which re-aggravated his injur, in favour of D'Amigo, who is healthy, hungry and would have made a difference for a team that was scared to battle and get in on the forecheck.
