@Cloud09 Clarkson can't be moved, obviously, and doubt Robidas can be either at this stage.
1 day, 17 hours ago on Maple Leafs Rumours: Cody Franson, Mike Santorelli and Daniel Winnik “highly likely” to be traded (Bob McKenzie)
@Cloud09 In fact, he may need to be waived to be picked up, if anybody wants him.
@Cloud09 Booth gets what, a 7th? May as well have him around as a warm body.
1 day, 20 hours ago on Friday Mashup: 6.5% and growing
@Mind Bomb @B_Leaf There still is no way.
Sounds like Maloney is sending a message. The price would be unconscionable.

@Burtonboy @Komas Taberle I think Phaneuf's contract is bad but can be moved. The contract hurts his value as a good 2-3 on a contending team though; Leafs won't get a return commensurate with that, I don't think.
@Komas Taberle @Burtonboy Lupul and Gardiner contracts aren't tying his hands.
@mr_hanie Similarly, not outwardly giving up all hope about the playoffs is basic stuff, too. There's no benefit to coming out and saying, "this season is a write off, our only hope is trading our expiring contracts for whatever we can get."
@mr_hanie I'm not one to defend Nonis often but in this case he's just trying to build a market and drive up the price. Pretty basic GM stuff. You don't just take the first offer that comes your way.
@wiski @mcloki He was Bernier's second favorite player growing up.

@udlbu @Burtonboy Why is this surprising? In that it's a smart move?

@colino17 @Komas Taberle @peterbleafs Wonder how he got those 20 points in 21 playoff games then, eh? What a mystery.
@In it to Winnik It'll be a thing that happens

@penchantforbeingmuppets @B_Leaf lol, how could an elite scorer ever be a part of the solution!
(maybe they do have to deal him if it's gonna take 5 yrs to contend, but the idea they couldn't win with him is lol)

@TuckerForPunishment @Alec Brownscombe The best game.
The definitive, discussion's-over "Clarkson is not even NHL calibre" post
Warning: Long and depressing read
@Czarofleafnation It was 100% a shot at the ridiculous Toronto market/media. Phil is really well liked among the players; the kind of guy who is hilarious without even knowing it.
@LN-093 @Jay31 Where have you been? Haha
@Hammertownleaffan @Alec Brownscombe @Luke_R Not having a deke in the repertoire can't help, but probably mostly a confidence thing. He's just missing corners wide.
@Luke_R Maybe he'll break his breakaway curse by potting a few. He's missed at least 10 breakaways/half breakaways in a row.
@Hammertownleaffan @Alec Brownscombe Haha, I actually find that story semi believable. There's some commonly-sold preworkouts out there with banned substances, I could see how a puffer might get an asthmatic athlete.
@Hammertownleaffan Roid rage
I mean puffer rage
@Hammertownleaffan @ingy56 Or don't.
Different strokes for different folks Hammer.
@Xxxxxnew Thank you for saying this. No one points this out ever when revisiting Kessel-Seguin. Look what Feschuk and the MSM is doing to Kessel right now; those teams with a very young Seguin instead of Kessel would've been horrible, and with the stuff Seguin was doing in Boston off the ice and his sometimes wavering commitment on it, he would've been flaaamed, probably so bad to the point that he was traded. Seguin maybe was always going to get traded once by some team who got tired of the antics, although if the Bruins were patient and waited for him to mature they'd sure be in a better place now.
Point is it's very hard to know if we'd be in a better place or not by reversing that trade (assuming the pieces stay the same, also a big assumption)

@N_Leafs @Alec Brownscombe @Sexyhairyman In all seriousness, thanks for the kind words, and see you around during better times hopefully.

@Sexyhairyman See you during the Devils game next week.
@HHT @Alec Brownscombe Well, if NoNo isn't fired, we're all screwed anyway.
@GLG The vultures are already circling the Leafs' corpse trying to pick off assets for 10 cents on the dollar. The sheer ineptitude it would require to beat out an Edmonton, Arizona, or Carolina for a shot at Eichel or McDavid is going to come at the price of the continued plummeting of asset values as Shanahan goes into a summer where he wants to make some significant player moves and try to make good value trades. Yeah, worth it if you know you'll get one of the two, but that's so far from assured -- it's statistically unlikely.
Good post and I get what you're saying entirely, but there's a flip side to the tank stuff people ignore a lot.
@peterbleafs "Phaneuf would be way harder to remove and reduce cap space. I want him traded too because to me it is obvious his team mates are not enamoured with him."
There are some legitimate reasons to want to trade Phaneuf, but do we have to make one up out of thin air?
What a waste of time and money going to that game, but that's what I was expecting. Just a pretty awful hockey game between two bad teams.
Frattin, Rielly and Gardiner looked good. Winnik, Bozak and Clarkson line had its moments. Not much else to report for positives. Reimer wasn't his usual Ottawa self.
1 week, 3 days ago on Game 47 Scoring Chances: Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3
Interesting to see the chances jive so well with what I saw tonight: Kadri the best forward, Polak the best D.
Bozak was awful.
Bernier wasn't good enough again tonight. Reimer's recent form is better and he plays the Senators well (in Ottawa in particular), so that should be a no brainer for Wednesday.

@Leafer You realize opportunities to catch people with a big hit don't just present themselves at your convenience, right?

@Cameron19 You know when Clark Griswold changes lanes in the opening scene of Christmas Vacation and ends up underneath the transport truck? And Ellen points it out and Clark goes "YOU HONESTLY THINK I DON'T KNOW THAT?"I always say that
@B_Leaf It's not built around Kessel. He's a piece and a very good one. Management hasn't addressed the C & D positions effectively.
Pretty simple stuff man.
@TJ Is Toronto even hockeying
FEED THE CHICKENS
The Leafs are shooting everything high and wide or at the chest. Put some fucking pucks low and hard FFS
@AlbertaMapleLeaf "30 in 2012!"
If I have to watch Clarkson complain to the refs about something stupid again I'm gonna pour bleach in my eyes
@Marlies Man Owns them always and he's playing better right now. No brainer
@rustynail @Mitch92 Fight the whole team Phaneuf! Be a leader!
@AlbertaMapleLeaf @Alec Brownscombe Well, I think that's a simplistic way to look at it. Carlyle's fingerprints are all over the roster.
