@DWCMLHS Personally I think Kadri's the one to trade, Bozak's been getting better every year
@CanuckUKinToronto @mike_84 If that's all he's worth, we should be able to land someone pretty f'n good for our 1st
@CanuckUKinToronto @Jordan29@Cameron19 There were still 32 players picked before him, we're not the only ones who missed him

@ingy56 @walton16 Could use Kadri as trade bait for an upgrade at C. If Bolland could stay healthy, i'd keep him and Bozie and look for a top talent. Stamkos/Tavares/Toews not that any of those guys are gonna come up but stranger things have happened
@Keeon Not if they sign a guy like Statsny but, that could be a bit of a pipe dream

@CanuckUKinToronto @wiski Even the games we won, we looked like shit
@Loric76 @Chris Jayhaha yeah, we've been lacking that pretty bad.
Does Shanahan actually have the knowledge/credentials to be a team "president?" What does that person even do?

@Xxxxxnew Slim pickins on D-men
@Yaknowwhat That Reilly's got wheels!
Do you guys think that part of the problem is that Randy didn't ever sit the guys who are shitting the bed for guys who are ripping it up on the Marlies to keep promoting internal competiton? How come we never sat Franson for Percy/Kolzer/MacWiliam/Brennan/Granberg never sat Clarkson for Ashton/D'Amigo/Holland/Biggs. These kids need to get their chance, even just to keep them hungry and to keep our lineup competing to stay out of the pressbox. Don't think I've seen that all year
@Yaknowwhat I agree! Wouldn't want to trade him unless it was a significant upgrade
@leaf4life Someone get this guy a tissue!
@Yaknowwhat Think I'd keep Bozie over Kadri
@Yaknowwhat If they can upgrade Kadri to a bigger, stronger C man, I'd do it
@mvw @Shift_Disturber1 The problems were all right there to begin with, we all saw them, how the fuck do you get outshot to the point setting a league record and not see that the D isn't working? Hate to say it but Mirtyle said it right from the start.
@Jmessih @Yaknowwhat Would you say he was just OK?

@Cameron19 @Chris Jay@Savo43 You can tell he's absolutely dying to get back in. He's a franchise goaltender in my opinion, Maybe not on the Leafs but he could take some team to the top one day. I think he's just on Carlyle's bad side after choking in game 7, and might never get back in favor with him.
@Savo43 Trading reimer would be a mistake in general, I think if St. Johnny goes down in some injury we're gonna need Reims and i honestly think if that does happen, he'll have a hard time getting it (starting position) back from him
@Kessel81 Sundin was one of the most consistent players to ever play the game. A point a game over a 1346 game career, not many people can do that. Easily the best Swede to ever lace em up. If only the Leafs organization could have landed a Kessel or a Mogilny in his prime to play with Sundin while he was in his prime, the Leafs would have been unstoppable but he ended up on lines with Robert Reichel and Jonas Hoglund and other long forgotten has beens.

@ProfessorRance@Chris Jay I have no idea. I doubt many of us had heard of Bylsma (sorry to keep using him as an example) before he was hired but there's got to be other competent coaches out there. Steve Spott?

@loomx@wendelsfist@Chris JayHahaha, just makin conversation :) Obviously I don't have much info other than what I've seen on the show but it just makes sense to me that these guys should be eating a far more superior diet that any ol non-athelete. It really makes a difference, I know quite a few marathon runners, and they are extremely serious about their diets and they're amateurs. These guys are pros. Making millions. Just as much thought should be going into diets as any other part of their game. Of course its a combination of coaching, lazyness. "blue-and-white disease" but all that can really boil down to on-ice energy level. I'd like to believe we have the talent. I'm really just looking for other reasons that these guys are losing so bad.
7 months ago on Post Game Thread: Shootout Loss to Detroit
Just finished watching 24/7 episode 2, I've noticed a few guys crushing Red Bulls before the game, i wonder how many other guys do that, I find it makes you crash pretty hard later. Also looked like they were eating some pretty questionable food on the plane, pork rolls was the only thing i heard but it just makes me wonder; how can we have the richest team in the league with all these guys being paid millions to be at the very top of their game, and not be teching the fuck out of their diets!?!? They're eating shitty fried foods, hotel breakfasts and energy drinks. No wonder they're crashing mid-way through the game. If they don't have a nutritionist on the payroll they definitely need one, and really enforcing healthy eating before a game, it would probably make a world of difference.

Has anyone ever proposed a yearly maximum of PIMs? Kind of like in basketball where a player has to sit the rest of the night out if he fouls out, a hockey player would have to sit out the rest of the season if he got over a certain number of PIMs. I think it would definitely be a better alternative than banning fighting and would probably get rid of these unnecessary douche bags whose only talent in life is face punching.

@Pent_House Carlyle's probably sheltering his guys, not wanting to sustain any more injuries.
@Burtonboy I liked Grabbo, but he really had no finish, always barging half way into the O zone and getting boxed out. Seemed like a me first player to me, and now it seems like his hot streak in Washington is going to be short-lived as well. He'll do fine but I doubt he hits 45 pts this year

Nice to come out with the win, but hopefully with Clarkson, Kulemin, JVR and Mclaren back these guys can tighten up the game a little, it's going to be hard to win games down the stretch with the giveaways, low face off percentage and the amount of shots we're giving up.

Does anyone else feel like Reimer is the best net minder we've had since Belfour? And we've had him since day one. I really wish people weren't so quick to jump on the Bernier train till he shows us the goods. We've had way too many promising young tenders let us down in the last decade to put all of our eggs into the basket of another unproven tender.
