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

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.

@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.

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.

After 2, Kadri line still outshooting the Penguins. Winnik not on the ice for a shot attempt against. Rest of team getting killed.

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

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

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."
