Bio not provided
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.
9 minutes ago on Saturday Mashup: 3rd overall within reach, Cameranesi with 2-pt game in UMD regional semifinal win
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.
22 minutes ago on Saturday Mashup: 3rd overall within reach, Cameranesi with 2-pt game in UMD regional semifinal win
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.
2 days, 1 hour ago on Thursday Mashup: Bailey set to debut, Marlies within a point of playoffs, lottery date set
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.

Hmmmm. Actually it looks pretty easy. And American Netflix too eh?...tempting.
4 days, 10 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
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 ;)
*should shut down the country. National holiday month.
I guess I'd want to know how much better a skater is Eichle compared to Strome.
4 days, 11 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
And Hall is back to lead the way!
Also all out of market is available. To be clear.
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.
I've honestly been watching hockey since I got home. Carolina looked pretty good against Chicago.
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.
Happy - cable free - camper here. Just got gamecenter live for the rest of the season and playoffs. Looking forward to some great hockey into June....also looking forward to the draft, obviously.
Nice patience by Nylander on his goal.
1 week, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #70, Toronto Maple Leafs at Vancouver Canucks (7 p.m., CBC)
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.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Game 68 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Sabres 3 (SO)
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.
Nylander with great vision. Brown with some nice moves too.
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.
Agreed. His shooting has a long way to go.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on GDT: Game #66, St. Louis Blues at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
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.
What side D does Hannifin play? Just curious.
Phil and Dions contracts aren't a problem outside a dysfunctional organization.
The moment you approach the speed of light....or is that when it slows down?
Gonna call it now. Blues win the cup this year.
4-3. Goals by Kadri, rielly and gardiner.
If I just use these ten, I would have it
Worst:dreger, kypreos, ward, Healy, Ferraro.
I actually like McGuire and Milbury.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Maple Leaf Hangout Season 2 Episode 3
He could have valid logic there. In 7 or 8 years, Reilly, Nylander, and this years draft will be in their primes.
How about some constructive criticism?
I had a dream that said if we don't pick in the bottom 3, we don't get a game changer.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
Is this Phil Kessel?
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.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
Damn-it! Of course he was.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Maple Leafs claim defenceman Tim Erixon
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.
Still worth it IMO
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Game 62 Scoring Chances: Canadiens 4 vs. Maple Leafs 0
Maybe we can package Bozak and Simmons for a nice return?
Actually, sounds like Bozak just stopped answering to Simmons, and Simmons (like the child he is) is trying to get some petty revenge.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Game 62 Scoring Chances: Canadiens 4 vs. Maple Leafs 0
Bernier is simply a good soldier. He knows he has to steer this tank. If we end up back in playoff contention in a year or two, we'll be happy we kept him.
CBJ buys out Clarkson. We re-sign him at a measly 4.5 mil. Genius!
4 weeks, 1 day ago on GDT: Game #61, Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN)
1 month ago on Daniel Winnik Traded to Pittsburgh
All is forgiven!!!
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Morgan Rielly coast-to-coast goal
Yes, but that was before Richards got sent down. And I don't think we were including Franson.
And what about that voynov contract? Do we dare leverage that?
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Game 53 Scoring Chances: Devils 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
Franson + Clarkson to LA
Toffoli + Richards coming back
From LA's perspective, do they just tell us to go to hell?
I feel lost without capgeek.
