@Dink @hockeyguyrh @Ratzshite @Uncle Otis That was 40 years ago. Time to catch up buddy.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Toronto Maple Leafs Hot Stove Hangout Ep.#2
@Ratzshite @TheGroobster @Uncle Otis Again I ask, when was the last time a goon went after a star player who did nothing to deserve the attack?
@Ratzshite @TheGroobster @Uncle Otis @hockeyguyrhThe Leafs did not go after any star player on Buffalo. There was a fight between to minor league players. Totally different situation here
@TheGroobster @Uncle Otis @hockeyguyrh No excuse. When was the last time a goon went after a star player who did nothing to deserve the attack. Come on. Don't make stupid comments
When was the last time a coach sent his goon out to fight a star player??? Come on! This guy should not be coaching in any league. IMO both coach and Scott should be suspended. Why isn't the media chasing down Rolston and calling him out for his bush league tactics. Come on media. This guy Rolston should be run out of the league.
@TheCanucksnaphook @hockeyguyrh yes, as a temp for now.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Leafs cut roster to 35: Blacker, Biggs assigned to Marlies
@TheCanucksnaphook @hockeyguyrh As Pat Quinn used to say, "you can never have too many centers on your team". Colborne for sure, but Ashton? As good as he has looked in camp, there isn't an opening for him. Who does he replace?
Interesting notes on Colbourne - apparently he has come to camp heavier than last year. Also working all summer with Barb Underhill on his skating. Carlyle said his skating from last year is like night and day. He should definitely be given the opportunity to see if he can become a 3rd/4th line nhl caliber center. I wonder what his faceoff % is?
@wendelsway1 @AussieLeaf @rickpearce76 @hockeyguyrh I agree, althou I don't think Burkie would be interested in Blacker, Holtzer.
Lets get to work Nonis, move JM Liles & a prospect to Burkie in Calgary, then sign Franson. Get workin Dave.
@LeafsGuru @hockeyguyrh Yes, Franson is a definite top 6 D who can play the PP quite well, and Ramond is depth as a scoring type winger. We have lots of depth for 3rd & 4th line wingers, but none who can provide what Raymond brings to the table.
@Yaknowwhat I'd say Freddy Gauthier. That's it. The rest look like 3rd and 4th liners, eg. Ashton, Biggs, Broll. etc.
Best depth we've had in years! OK Nonis, get movin and send Burkie JM Liles and a prospect for next to nothing! Then sign Franson 4 yrs @ 3.5 per or 2 yrs @ 2.9 per (same as Kadri). Also sign Raymond for 1M. Go Leafs Go!
@Denied Bolland got traded!
3 months ago on Two Days Until Camp Opens…
@Yaknowwhat I really like Frattin too, but if Bernier turns into what he is supposed to be, then its a good trade. Remember that its easy to replace a winger, unlike goal, center or defense.
Glad to see Burke in Calgary. Why? A potential trading partner for jm Liles. Give them jml and a prospect that we don't need, eg Blacker, Ashton, Holtzer, D'Amigo for a late round pick. We win by losing a bad contract. After all, it was Burke who signed that bad contract.
does anybody think Nonis contacted Burke regarding jm liles & if so, how did the talks end???
@GeorgeCastanza @The_Irv equal although Cmac is the better overall player.
3 months ago on Rookie Camp Impressions, and a few thoughts on Raymond
@The_Irv Can't fit under current cap, unless Nonis sends JM Liles & a prospect to his old buddy Burke for a late round pick.
Was most impressed with Gauthier. He looks like the real deal as an above average 2nd line TWO WAY Center. Of all the prospects, I predict he will have the most impactful NHL career
