10 months, 2 weeks ago on Thursday Morning Leafs Round Table: Early Preseason Reflections
@mcloki The fan is the worst
most MSM guys are terrible tbh. They've written/spoken about so much BS that is only said to boost ratings/readership that over time they start to believe the BS
@Loric76 @Supercilious_ guess thats one way to win a spot at camp...
injure the guy who you're competing for a spot against!
10 months, 2 weeks ago on Preseason Post Game: Leafs 4 vs. Flyers 3
@Loric76 was it Ashton that did that?
@ingy56 @Radar O'Rielly @Supercilious_ yeah. dudes the worst
What do the fighters care about an extra 2 minutes, as long as both guys take off their helmets?
Just make sure both guys remove em before they dance and its nbd imo
@Jay_Berg Fair enough
My point was that we arent going to have cap difficulties
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Training Camp 2013 – Day #1, Live from the MasterCard Center of Excellence (and journalistic mediocrity)
@Jay_Berg The reality is that just because other teams drive up the price, doesnt mean the leafs should pay it
Our top 6 is set.... are you telling me you'd pay Bolland and Kulemin 4 million dollars plus to play on our third line just because they can also play the PK and PP?
@Jay_Berg Do either of those guys fit into our regular top 6 though?
Should we pay them like top 6 players because theyre capable of filling in on the top 6 due to injuries?
Its bad cap management. They either get paid third line salaries or they go get paid by someone who can play them in their top 6
We cant be tying up 4M dollar UFA contracts on our third line
@Mind Bomb @Supercilious_ @ConnorCrisp
I hear you. I just don't see it being that huge of an issue.
Much as I love Kulemin, he's being paid almost 3 million to be a checking winger. If he wants a raise from that, I'd just as happily let him walk and stick someone from the marlies into that spot who's only making a million bucks (D'amigo, Carter, Ross etc)
@Jay_Berg Just because they're UFA's doesnt mean they deserve raises
How many third liners get paid more than 3.5M?
@Mind Bomb @Supercilious_ @ConnorCrisp
enlighten me then. how much extra money do we need to come up with to tie up those guys?
bolland, kulemin & gardiner would only require about 2 million extra on top of what theyre currently making (IMO)
Reimer cant be re-signed if hes a backup
@Jay_Berg Kulemin & Bolland arent getting raises from their 2.8 & 3.3 respectively.
Gards will go up from 1.1 to 2.5ish depending on how he does this year
Reimer will probably be traded if Bernier takes over the starting role.... Fraser & McClement would be neglible raises.
Maybe Ranger will need an extra mil or two....
they can probably all be signed for under 5M in increases.
9 million extra to re-sign all of our players isnt that bad... its not like we'd want to retain all of them anyways what with some of the young kids (d'amigo, rielly) about to make the jump in the next 12 months
@ConnorCrisp @Supercilious_ yep, should be lots of space to figure it all out
Everyone seems to be freaking out about needing to re-sign Phaneuf & Kessel in the same year and it not fitting under the cap.
Nobody seems to realize that Phaneuf is already on 6.5M and Kessel is on 5.4
Phaneuf will probably receive around the same money give or take a million and Kessel will go up to between 7 & 8M
Thats only an extra 4M in cap space TOPS that we need to sign both players
@MaxwellHowe @Supercilious_ He's the glue on the second line for sure
I think the leafs go as far as the second line goes as well (offensively anyways)
Need him playing 70+ games this year
10 months, 3 weeks ago on 2013-14 Season Preview: Forwards
Lupul manages to get himself injured on picture day.... shocker
@GeorgeCastanza He'd fit on quite a few rosters
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Kadri’s in the house.. What now?
