@CanuckUKinToronto Most likely, Ranger hasnt been solid enough.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Leafs Sign Jerred Smithson
It'd be great if we could get Liles out of toronto once and for all so he can just move on.
9 months ago on Dreger: Leafs willing to sweeten pot to offload Liles
@dlb eh As long as Gardiner brings it and Gunnarsson is his usual self (looking to impress for team canada), and Ranger matches expectations we should be good
9 months, 3 weeks ago on MLHS Bloggers Predict the Leafs’ finish
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Nice one.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Leafs extend Phil Kessel: 8 years, $64-million
@docyqx True, If we didnt give him $8mill, someone else would've. Plain and simple, and who doesnt want to play for the Biggest NHL franchise in the league, Possibly in all of Hockey.
@Knights2Leafs He is definitely close.
@ProfessorRance @TMLConnor Yeah true, I dont really care about the $, as long as we can see an explosive exciting goal scorer for the next 6 years solid
Whoop cant wait to see Kessel with his 64 Million dollar smile tonight haha. Hopefully he scores ;)
Can't wait to see Phil the Thrill be here in Toronto for the next 7-8 years, I quite honestly dont care how much $ they give him, but if its more then 8 million there will be talk if he's being overpaid for sure.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Kessel, Leafs working on contract extension; could get done tomorrow
@B_Leaf I heard it was confirmed to be Ashton
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Parting thoughts on Joe Colborne
@LeafsManiac @TMLConnor Yeah just hoping if we get him its not 6mill and not over 6 years. But he is the captain, so we will see how it turns out
@Yaknowwhat @CanuckUKinToronto @TMLConnor Yeah not saying thats what id do, Just saying thats what he'll want
@CanuckUKinToronto @Yaknowwhat @TMLConnor Yeah i wish we could get him signed like 7 years at about 5.5, then not have to worry about him for a while. But im sure if he gets a $ cut, he'll want that term with a no trade
If Phanuef signs with the Leafs, how much money do you guys think they'll give him + term. As well if the leafs dont sign him because he wants too much $, who do you think will snatch him?
@CanuckUKinToronto Most likely Ranger, because last one in sorta thing. But thats just my best guess, unless he dangles Carlyles pants off haha.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Leafs waive John Michael Liles, 5 others
@Burtonboy @CanuckUKinToronto @TMLConnor Hmm not sure how it'll work then, I guess if hes here for the season, doubts we will just let him leave for 2 months for the world Juniors. Way i see it, but if not, He'll definitely be there with ole Mcdavid and them
@CanuckUKinToronto He only goes to Junior championships if he's in Moose Jaw after 9 games. "my understanding
@CanuckUKinToronto Dont think they confirmed any lines yet, besides top line which is obvi. But who knows about defensive pairings
@Savo43 Yeah not bad for first ten, Id probably match Franson with Fraser, and Ranger with Gardiner most likely.
@JWasted Those confirmed lines for tonight?
9 months, 4 weeks ago on Maple Leaf Hangout Episode #3: Franson, Kessel, team ratings
Franson should get a nice applause hopefully when he steps on the ice. But half of our team is going into FA next year which troubles me...
10 months ago on Toronto Maple Leafs’ Cody Franson Signs 1 Year Deal
@Loric76 His fault really. And i mean it entirely, he pulled and picked that fight. I bet he'll think twice next time.
10 months ago on The most dangerous act in the Sabres/Leafs brawl
@CanuckUKinToronto @TMLConnor Yeah i hope franson just gets signed and the drama will be in the past
10 months ago on Leafs Notebook: Preseason Edition – September 23
@CanuckUKinToronto If so, the return better be good.
@Black_Hawk Colbourne reminds me strangely like Joe Thornton, it scares me to think of what kind of a player he will be in a 2-3 years. (not saying 114 point season) But he could be quite good.
10 months ago on Leafs sign Mason Raymond to 1-year, $1-million contract
@Savo43 Yeah good pick up for sure, ($ is no brainer) He will be used by Carlyle and should be a 15-20+ goal scorer hopefully.
@ionsys I can see Liles being traded, with Gardiner doing great so far, and with us signing Raymond to a 1 year deal, that would open up room for a possible Franson signing.
10 months ago on Fight Night in Toronto: Preseason Post Game #5 – Leafs 5 vs. Sabres 3
Mason raymond 1 Year Deal
@Dink @wendelsway1 @TMLConnor Yeah all the announcers were calling it a spear, i was thinking more of a tap.
@LightmyLeaf @TMLConnor I meant when it was all over he went back at Scott and gave him a poke.
Ok that was an amazing game, And i love how Kessel bloodied that tool that went after him and then went back and gave scott a bit of a poke, I pissed myself for like 20 mins.
Unfortunately Clarkson will probably get 10 games for jumping over the boards, Kessel will probably get 1-3 games for that "spear", i personally thought he barely touched him, more of a "Hey GFYS" moment. Great GAME!
The game Vs Sens tomorrow should be fun to watch, most likely the sens will put their best players out again, Ryan, Spezza, Michalek, and Karlsson. Not looking forward to seeing them on the other side of the ice, but if we get our big young guys out throwing the body it should tilt the scales a little bit. Unless we actually put some of our regular season guys out there.
10 months, 1 week ago on Leafs cut roster to 35: Blacker, Biggs assigned to Marlies
@Dan39 @WendelGilmour @TMLConnor Yeah i watched in on a shitty stream, but if its the one i think it was, YEAH it was awesome, even injured him haha
10 months, 1 week ago on Preseason Post Game: Leafs 4 vs. Flyers 3
@WendelGilmour yeah Blacker and MacWilliam looked pretty sick, MacWilliam hit anything that moved and hes a big kid too. Nice to see we can beat Philly with 3 NHL fulltimers and they were using like 7. Good to know our farm system is good
@wiski @TMLConnor yeah ahah i watched a shitty stream for this game actually, and we get 170mb download speed hardwired, which we were and we couldnt see the puck and the jersey number was hard to make out
@wiski @Pent_House @TMLConnor i thought Ranger was wicked tbh
@wiski @TMLConnor Yeah i know center ice does, but not "Leafs Tv" Specifically, which is what im confused about, its only available for Bell satellite, and i hate satellite, a damn rainbow comes out and you get a fuzzy picture
They need to get Leafs TV for more providers.. Going to have to buy Centre Ice ($199.99) just to watch leaf games.. Its not on eastlink, and not for bell Fibre Op. What the fack is this
@GreekGod Yeah sure didnt.
@rustynail Ole Marky Masters, getting er done son.
@colino17 Unless they cant afford them, then no, Theyd be stupid not to throw him a mill one year deal
@Loric76 @TMLConnor Yeah i though he was pretty good, and i did notice his pads looked a bit smaller near five hole. We will see how Bernier does tonight though
Yeah Reimer wasnt on the top of his game, but first game of the year no big deal, Bolland i thought was invisible the whole game. Blacker had a good game, so did young Gauthier, Reilly looked pretty good, and Ranger looked solid all night long, whether it was hits, passes, or even a dirty rebound goal ;) Gibson played a wicked half game. Franson should be a bit worried now, and Raymond was sick
Phaneuf and Reilly would be sick.

Did Messier have nothing better to do today haha ;)
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Live Video: Leafs Media Day
@Burtonboy I think hes looking to sign anywhere for a long period. So hes putting that out there so if theres any options for high $, then they know what he wants, Big money, and Term.
@ingy56 @Komas Taberle He just likes his cheeseburgers, Who the Fack doesnt ;)
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Kadri’s in the house.. What now?
@Knights2Leafs @TMLConnor I thought that frattin was alright, i didnt like him a whole lot personally. He may have had some potential, im just glad we are adding more players that are going to be impacting us this season. Not 2-3 seasons from now.
@Dink @TMLConnor @CanuckUKinToronto Well i dont hate the guy, i think he works hard and really tries. But if Mason Raymond comes in,a guy who has a bit more of a scoring background, and can score 12-18 goals a season and for 2 mill less. I think its worth it. But if we keep Kulemin i wouldnt really care either. Just putting options out there that would make more sense management wise ($)
@Knights2Leafs @TMLConnor Haha yeah we are pretty awesome, im not saying it would get us a Chris Pronger or something or drew doughty, but a proven top 4 with 4-5 years of NhL experience under his belt would be pretty awesome, and someone you could rely on defensively also rack up some points
@CanuckUKinToronto If Kulemin doesnt start to show more of a scoring role this year, on a line with players that arent Kadri, and Lupul, then we should shop him for something, possibly a conglomerated trade like this - Kulemin, Liles, and Holzer and possible get another top rated defensemen or a True #1 center. I know Kadri has the potential, but having a wicked line up down the middle cant hurt.
@Savo43 Yeah good point, but ranger was a pretty highly coveted signing, I havent seen a whole lot of him, but from his previous stats he could surprise a lot of us.
@DWCMLHS Well the only Liles we have seen effective is under Ron wilson, and we all know how that went with Grabo, and look what happened to him, i do agree you do need veterans, but him under Randy Carlyle is a iffy situation at best, and given the circumstances that are right now, needing to sign Franson, and Kadri, i just think it would benefit us more to buy him out or trade
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Morning Mashup: Coach Stats vs. GM Stats
@Greg Fenton @TMLConnor Not only the age factor, the cost, size of player, and whether or not we need him, and the way i see it, we have enough young good D-men to keep using him, and with us scrounging for cap $, 3 million dollars off would probably get Franson and Kadri signed guaranteed.
@colino17 @TMLConnor But there was 2 different buy out periods, im not sure why they didnt buy him out if a trade wasnt available. 3 million off cap sounds pretty good right now
Why do we even have Liles? Old, too much $ and not a physical force what so ever
I heard kadri posted on Bobs twitter saying it wasnt true
