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

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."

@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

@lukethenuke @TheCanucksnaphook Doesn't it seem like mgmt is trying to bring back some of the guys from 12-13 to revive that magic? So I guess they think this roster is good enough for a first round flameout lol

@dlb Mad @Jay31 @Ze_theLeafsFan He needs work defensively, Spott can help him work on that part of his game.

If that's true I'd be ok with giving him a cheap deal. Clarkson needs linemates who can actually cycle

What do you guys think of Booth as a cheap reclamation project to play on L3? He's good on the boards and a good 2-way player, just had a silly contract in VAN.

Booth-Legwand-Clarkson

@Cameron19 @theacs1966 Exactly what I was thinking earlier.. Stastny in addition to bottom 6 additions; or tear this mother down


But I'm not sure Shanahan sees it that way. Also haven't seen any reports linking Leafs to Stastny. Have read reports about Boyle, Glass, Brodeur, no Stastny though.

Is the interest in Brodeur for his presence in the room?  I assume so because his sv% has been terrible in recent years, severely below avg.

@Anthony Petrielli @Uncle Otis I agree with #1c being the team's biggest need and all, but sometimes wonder, just how much would a David Backes type, for example, change the dynamic of that first line? Would Kess and JVR change their play style? As it is, I see Backes doing most of the work and Kess/JVR probably still looking to cheat most of the time. (obviously this is hypothetical, Backes is going nowhere)

"The key now will be adding that second layer."


The problem is that the Leafs won't be able to do that without gutting the team. Difference when LA did it was they could afford to lose players like Schenn/Simmonds/Johnson.


We're stuck with a team that can only really be improved through the draft IMO, trades will only be lateral AT BEST. And the problem with that is, how long can we really wait for drafted players to make a difference? Kessel turns 27 next year.

After that 1st Quick's save % for the playoffs now stands at .907. Last goalie to win a cup with that low of a sv% was Barrasso in '92.
