@Doorman even with a different coach the team as currently constructed has a ceiling of a bubble team.. just not good enough

@Bring the Cup Home @Jay31 yea, that same article could be written about our guys too unfortunately
Why does anyone want Eberle?
Read this article about him: http://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/573273
We don't need another forward like that in our top 6.
@GeorgeCastanza eichel wouldn't be a bad consolation prize but right now we're not that bad either

@Cameron19 pretty good trades value-wise. I like the first one a lot, Tarasenko is basically a younger Kessel, arguably not as good but he's got a very nice shot. That trade puts STL over the top though.. wow. I wonder if Hitchcock would want someone like Kessel though.
@TorontoMapleLeafs @Jay31 if we want our top pick tobe high enough to help us though, he's going to have to sell. The question is if he even would
Would Shanahan even make the kinds of moves being discussed this season? From what I read in the summer he's treating this season as an evaluation period.
I'm hoping he's bolder than that. If he lets this team finish in purgatory that's a big fail.
should l3 get some time against zetterberg?

really great to read after the game, thanks for the report

@Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 @Cloud09 do you think trades like this are actually in the realm of possibility for this season though? I wonder how patient shanny is
4 days, 9 hours ago on Game Review: Game #5, Red Wings 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Anthony Petrielli @Cloud09 who would be the names you'd move? And how long are you giving them to improve until you'd want to see these kinds of moves?
Isn't it a bit too early to be throwing Gardiner in trade proposals? Percy looks good but we're literally 4 games into his NHL career.

2nd line solidified with Winnik.. 1st line could use a presence like that too
1 week, 2 days ago on Game Day: Game #3, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New York Rangers (7 p.m., City TV)
@TheLoovTrain Holland and Panik under 5 mins ice time I'm pretty sure
@ninepaces2 Let's see if it continues against teams that arent injury depleted
2nd line is only one generating anything so far
Scratched tonight, Jake Gardiner actually led Leafs in TOI last night (23:04)
Leafs scratch Jake Gardiner.
@mtommy MLSE is just lucky they're in this market, an organization that incompetent would fail in most American markets
1 week, 3 days ago on GDT: Game #2, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., CBC)
how long of a losing streak for Carlyle to get fired?
@MaxwellHowe @Jay31 yeah he went total beast mode on that one PP
After 2, Kadri line still outshooting the Penguins. Winnik not on the ice for a shot attempt against. Rest of team getting killed.
Really don't like seeing Clarkson on the PP, i get that they have to try to get value from the contract but still
Rielly's a beast
well deserved by Santo and good stuff Rielly
1 week, 6 days ago on GDT: Game #1, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., Sportsnet)
@Loric76 it's looked like that to my eye too, first line only one not winning matchup
first line and first pairing out together in our zone.. not the prettiest sight
@mike_84 and in front of the net
Did Rielly get even faster

Would you give Gardiner a two-year "show me" deal or something like JVR's deal?

@Bruffins @Cloud09 He's pretty good at it, I bet you he's just sitting there smirking while a bunch of people start yelling at him on twitter
2 months, 4 weeks ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Hope we keep him but if not, trading him would work out too considering the term, would've been harder if he were a pending ufa
@Yaknowwhat Reimer t-31st, Bernier t-10th on this list (25+ GP) http://hkref.com/tiny/xgsqc
Man I feel sorry for anyone who really think Stamkos is coming here. 2 years of hope only to be crushed. Dude's just using us as leverage as others have noted
@Murph2417 He played mostly with Brad Richardson and Zack Kassian

They actually signed Booth eh? Posted about signing him as a reclamation project a few weeks ago.Booth-Santorelli-Clarkson could be a good line. That would work for Clarkson, much better than him being with Lupul-Kadri
@Alec Brownscombe @Jay31 @The_Polish_Cannon @loomx Would be great for Carlyle to be canned to see the difference in possession. I suspect it wouldn't be much but would still be great to provide an answer one way or the other
3 months, 1 week ago on Steve Spott, Peter Horachek named Maple Leafs’ Assistant coaches
Always see people talking about systems/coaches affecting possession and how Carlyle is the reason we suck at it... but isn't it possible we just don't have the players necessary to be a good possession team?
Strength at wing, poor center group relative to the rest of the league.. I don't think coaching/systems has as much to do with it as people want to think. A different coach can't make our players good at the things that lead to higher poss. - board play, puck pursuit/battles, hockey iq in general, etc
Liked this quick summation of the Komarov signing
"It’s a good sign that a player who’s been a part of the Leafs before wants to come back. That means he knows what he’s walking into, there’ll be no surprises, and he’ll show up ready to rock."
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Toronto Maple Leafs Updated Depth Chart
@mike_84 The good thing is he won't have to shoulder it like Gunnar-Phaneuf did last year, we'll have 2 pairings capable of sharing those mins
@Dewy Keon Hogturd Doesnt seem like they're looking to tank anymore
@Bruffins Ok (but sticktap to Tallon)
@Bruffins @lukethenuke You dont think Shanny would bring in his own people at that point?
