@ingy56 @Cameron19 @hometeem @Burtonboy better than EDM! at least Carolinas warm :)
14 hours, 47 minutes ago on Friday Mashup: Chara out 4-6 weeks, Leafs play Boston Saturday
@mike_84 @wendelsfist Its circled five times by Phil
1 day, 4 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bruins Saturday
@Great Dane Cool article - makes me hopeful bringing in the London Knights braintrust with the power of our monay
2 days, 19 hours ago on Game Review: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs 5 vs. New York Islanders 2
@Savo43 @Luke_R I was thinking about that actually, Komarov on the first line could be
effective... give them some physical presence and defensive awareness,
distraction too. Lets JVR and Phil do their thing. They don't need Bozak
to create offense.
3 days, 3 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
@Burtonboy Sounds about right
@Komas Taberle Doubt it!
3 days, 4 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
@Yaknowwhat My vote goes to Ashton.
4 days, 22 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@loomx Yupp Id look at Yakupov -- buy low option
@Hmmm @DylanJ I dont think its the word Declan meant to use lol
5 days, 5 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
Holland suffered a "niggling" injury.... ?
1st period Matt Frattin actually through a pretty huge hit in Detroit offensive zone.
Hopefully he can crack the fourth line
5 days, 22 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
I cant believe how often the first line goes offside lol
If the Leafs carry on this play, I think the personnel needs to be held somewhat accountable.
Keep Reilly, Percy, Kessel, JVR , Nylander, Bernier.....then look for a package or two with any other players.
Be willing to accept life without Kadri, Gardiner, Phaneuf, Bozak, maybe even Nylander....see what players pop up in the market. These guys combined with some of our upper-mid tier prospects like Gauthier, Leivo, Kozun, Biggs easily make for some packages we can use to shake things up
6 days, 21 hours ago on Game Review: Game #5, Red Wings 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@MaxwellHowe lol pretty much. I'd take a look at Taylor Hall / Eberle / Draisitl / Nurse though
@Bring the Cup Home I'd rather them lose if they let the goalies get pillaged like last year.... no point winning games because of goaltending only, it rewards the team when they should be learning that defense wins you games, not good goaltending
@Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 @Cloud09 Bozak is Pavelski lite. I think he'd get a fair return
@HHT @Bring the Cup Home Difference is Stall was #2 OVERALL in a draft with like 25 awesome players in the first round alone. He's not a Clarkson. And he's about a year and a half older than Bozak.
Rick Nash about the same age, and he's having a great start to the season after a lot of questions here. These high pedigree guys around age 30 always silence the critics
1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Leafs Analytics Tools On Display, Lupul hurt
@Cameron19 @Xxxxxnew I have a good feeling about Goats becoming a super solid 3C - like best third line C in the league type of guy. Monster defensive acumen with lots of shutdown ability
1 week, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: Back to .500
Man, I have a feeling E. Staal would be dope in TO. Big 6''4 Canadian PPG Centre is just what this team needs and considering the situation in Carolina he might be available this year!
JVR E. Staal Kessel
Lupul Kadri Winnik
Komarov Bozak Clarkson
Kozun Santorelli Ashton
(Gauthier, Nylander, Broll)
Looks like a pretty big, skilled, hard working forward corps all of a sudden :)
@wiski @docmma @DylanJ Yup couldnt ask for a better game from him. If he keeps it up our blue line is looking pretty damn solid Considering the whole 'build from the net out' philosophy we're actually pretty close. If we could add 1 or 2 impact forwards over the next little while, maybe another top 2 Dman, this team is legit
2 weeks, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #1, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., Sportsnet)
@Dangle_My_Berries A little better, at least for the first half of the game. Lots of kinks to be worked out Im sure
Considering how bad the 2nd and 3rd periods were Im kinda glad Leafs lost. Give them a shake to start the year off
@docmma @DylanJ Yeah didnt put that into consideration at all. Just sayin he had an awesome first then blended back into the crowd after, which is fine
@docmma @DylanJ True, he had an awesome first
Seeing Bozak hate, I thought he was the best of the top line tonight. He also got a goalThought Komarov, Polak, Reilly, Winnik, Kadri and Clarkson all played pretty well
Wasnt very impressed with Phil and JVR tonight, looked pretty lazy -- hopefully they 180 for next game
Knew it -- both Orr and McLaren waived. Be patient next time to all those complaining before cuts are even made !!
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Maple Leafs cut Colton Orr, Fraser McLaren, William Nylander; Roster down to 23
@The_Polish_Cannon HAHAH what the hell was going on in the 90s??
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Saturday Mashup: final rosters to come shortly
@wiski HAHA best line of the article: "Keep doing you, P.K." ...
@Savo43 @leaffan4life @WendelGilmour @Bruffins Bozak is pretty damn good now. I think he'll be a lot closer to 2013 Bozak than previous years... more than people think. He's developed nicely up there
@Bruffins @Savo43 We're one great top 6 player away from having a sick setup up front
@mike_84 @Bruffins @Savo43 Yeah - unless E. Kane really does have serious character issues (which I have no idea from my perspective) he would have been / could be a great addition to our top 6 in that respect:
JVR Bozak Kessel
Lupul Kadri E. Kane
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Saturday Mashup: final rosters to come shortly
@Bring the Cup Home @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Mitch92 @Walter_White Remember back in the day when every year people would project Kessel hitting 40. I think this will finally be the year!
@Luke_R @LN-093 Yup. And makes sense really -- big players like JVR tend to take a few more years to bloom
Looks like Randy is changing his ways.... talking about having the puck way more.... utilizing our speed to apply pressure...and we've seen good evidence of this already in pre-season.
Way more defensive pressure.... employing our D to be offensive (which is probably our biggest strength as a team considering the roster).....
Im just going to go ahead and say the Leafs will make the playoffs this year
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Saturday Mashup: final rosters to come shortly
So.... how big of an upgrade on Gunnar has Polak been!
Loving this guy
@Alec Brownscombe @DylanJ @gottabe_KD @B_Leaf Well Phaneuf has been a lightning rod for a lot of things but breakouts / getting the puck out of his end, has been a big reason. He's looked pretty good on the Left side this preseason too
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup
@Alec Brownscombe @gottabe_KD @B_Leaf Defensemen seem to really support the idea of playing your strong side. Robidas today was like "yeah I hate playing the left side. I play the right side always". Randy was a Norris winning D-man and said the same kind of thing. I'm also willing to see how that goes
@ingy56 @wiski @Jmessih swamp coins
@Xxxxxnew Yeah he hit the crossbar TWICE with that snapper against detroit - those go in and it would have been a tie game
@Bruffins Im going to vote YES
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: Bye Bye Carter?
@sniperstar @mtommy We need the C more than the 2 LW
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Bye Bye Carter?
@DeclanK Nice! Thanks for the update.
@Burtonboy I dont like when Leafs players "vow" things... remember when Wendel Clark and Clarkson had that video chat...yikes
@ingy56 Mid year
@Jmessih @MaxwellHowe @ingy56 That would be AMAZING
@Bruffins Marlies 100%.
@wiski Great verse. Not a great chorus. Cool to see!
