Weber and Suter haven't had a lot of playoff success, unlike Doughty. You could blame the teams they've played for. But I say ability to clear the crease is bottom of the list. Doughty keeps the play away from his crease. He is the one Rielly should be studying tape on. He's the more comparable best case scenario.

Oh I wasn't insinuating we are anything like those teams. Just that good defence can be had without being the biggest in the league. As far as I can tell we have one guy that meets both smart and top skater check lists. Rielly. Of course LA is said to be nothing without doughty. Maybe if Rielly develops a mean streak, he could be our Doughty.

LA and Detroit average about 6'1" or 6'2".

What I'd really like us to aim for is the best skating/smartest defence core in the league.

I think we might be able to snag their first rounder if we throw in another piece they're missing. Thinking Polak, not Dion.

Bernier would be a good fit in Dallas. Not only do they need a goalie, but Seguin has made it very comfortable there for all D-bag misfits.

Time for Bettman to come to the rescue with a nice little draft lottery gift. I don't think he wants the new Leaf owners to see a drop in revenue for the foreseeable future.

But I stream it from my TV's app. Pretty sure that work around is over my skill set. Plus, it's only like 20 leaf games a year I'll miss. But I guess if we win the draft lottery I'll do it ;)

I think they do cover HNIC. But I'll confirm this weekend. My understanding is anything national is available. I Think everything changed this year since Rogers bought all rights. As much as I despise Rogers, this looks like a good deal for fans. Although I'll wait till this weekend to be sure. I did get tonight's leafs game.

It covers all nationally broadcast games, which includes all the playoffs including your local team ( if they made it). The only games you don't get are local team regional rights. So leafs TV or leafs games on TSN regional. Streams right on most smart TVs too. But you better have unlimited data.

Nice patience by Nylander on his goal.

He doesn't have a history of concussions, or back problems, or any other injuries that make a player fall off their prime peak performance. He trains like a pro. He adapts his game (albeit, he was a little reluctant at first), and wants to continue to improve his game. I think he'll be a willy veteran with a long career.

That said, he may not fit our long term needs/ cap management. So I understand a trade.

I like Phaneuf. Trading him only makes sense if you need the cap space. He's going to still be a solid DMan through most of this contract.

Buffalo is an AHL team. Hard to lose to that. I do think Dion should be looking for more fights down the stretch. We could use another injury about now.

I think if Edmonton ends up with the second overall, we could trade for it. Dion + our 1st. Maybe nashvilles 1st to sweeten the deal.

He could have valid logic there. In 7 or 8 years, Reilly, Nylander, and this years draft will be in their primes.

I'll be upset if we trade with Detroit. Why would we give Dion to a division rival that's known as a tough bargainer? We will lose this deal.

Think Anaheim would let John Gibson go in a Phaneuf trade? Seems like Anderson might make him expendable. Package it with Reimer for another pick/prospect coming back to us. I'd feel comfortable with Letting Bernier and Gibson compete for the starter position.
