He cleared waivers and is with their AHL team. Elliot only got hurt the other day. I'm sure they would have tried if the timing was right. I have Kemper and elliot so its been a crazy week.

Orpik was a top pairing dman for stretches last year and Niskanen led a very talented group of dmen in points. Losing Scudder, Martin, and Letang to injury is what gave those guys a chance to shine. Franson will just be a top 4 dman on a weak team. I think Boychuk will be the top UFA dman next year.

@Zep2 Holzer should have gotten a shot for a while now. He was put on the top pairing on his 1st time around and we never heard from him again.

@DJBrianBurke @vinoa Habs, Bruins, Sens. I don't know if there's a pattern, but it seems that a lot of teams get favourable calls when they play the Leafs.
@DJBrianBurke Every team that plays the Leafs*
@Fish Head @Omac13 @Xxxxxnew Raymond seemed like a no brainer with his bargain contract. Was Nonis really expecting a cup?

@Fish Head @vinoa @wendelsfist I like this one. It addresses a need and moves 2 larger contracts.
@Yaknowwhat Only if NoNo has the balls.
@wendelsfist Now's the time to go after ROR. They need help with defense. Gards and a pick or two should do it.
I feel like they moved Leddy to keep Oduya

@Mo29 You having a conversation with yourself there?
@Bruffins Love the Raps, hate basketball. Last night my cousins were over and they wanted to watch the ball game in betweeen commercial breaks. Sure enough, we missed 2 Leafs goals and saw a bunch of meaningless points from the Cavs.

@StanSmith @vinoa @Soft_Hands @wendelsfist It was that cold stretch from January that did Franson in. He was going well until then. Also, with Gleason and Rielly around, I don't believe for a second that Franson finished 6th on the depth chart. Is this like when Nonis made the JVR for Schenn trade?
@Soft_Hands @vinoa @wendelsfist He led our blueline in points last year as well. I don't care for Franson, but he definitely has more value than Gards.
@DeclanK @vinoa @Yan28 @wendelsfist This is a recurring trend with Gards. Start the season like this and then go on a tear once the team is fully out of a playoff picture. Come to think of it, even his rookie season was like that.

@peterbleafs @vinoa @Yan28 @wendelsfist Stralman was a 7th round pick and took a long time to get to where he is. Gards is a former 1st rounder who had a brilliant rookie year and hasn't been able to follow it up with another solid season. Plus Stralman plays more of a stay at home game compared to Gards. I want Gardiner to succeed, but if the problems are in his head, this market probably isn't the best for him to achieve his best.
@DeclanK @Yan28 In his defense, it is the end of the month. I've probably used my 10 free articles as well on Chrome. Is Simmons worth opening up Firefox?
@Yan28 @vinoa @wendelsfist The question is how good is Gards really? He hasn't been anywhere near as good as his rookie campaign and that was 3 years ago. As for Franson, he plays the weakest position in the league. RD are valuable commodities and I bet you can get a lot more for an RD that's locked for 5 years than a UFA. If Gards doesn't step his play up, it's time to ship his ass out. I'm tired of waiting for his breakout season. He makes the same kind of money as Shattenkirk, Vlasic, Fowler, Carlson, Voynov, Hedman, Josi, and even Giordano. I'd take any of those guys over Gardiner. Gardiner is just not as good as we Leafs fans are hoping he is.
@Burtonboy @vinoa @wendelsfist @Cameron19 Actually their drafting outside of 1st overall picks hasn't been that great. Sure they got Eberle, but they drafted a guy named Pitlick when Justin Faulk was on the board, Musil when Jenner, Saad, and Gibson were available. They should really overhaul that scouting department.
@wendelsfist If Nonis had swapped those 2 contracts, he'd look like a genius right about now. Instead, he's going to have to lose Franson for nothing and Gards' is quickly becoming another bad contract on the books.
@wendelsfist @Cameron19 We're nowhere near as bad as those guys. Seeing the Oilers' struggles makes me skeptical of the whole "build through the draft" mantra.
@Yan28 Is that 3 in a row for them?

@HHT @Potcy @TuckerForPunishment In his defense, it is an empty gesture. His job is just to change the tire...since he can't stay in the lineup for the whole season.

@DeclanK @vinoa @StanSmith @TuckerForPunishment @Yan28 I don't get why people need to fabricate things as if we're not all accessing the same information. I think it really highlights the futility of trying to educate them on reality since they've already made their minds up.
@StanSmith @DeclanK @TuckerForPunishment @Yan28 I couldn't find anything linking Nonis to that trade. Found plenty of stuff about Burke wanting him for a while though.

@.Kong. Your boss is another one of those people who gets their knowledge from the MSM. Ph9 had a decent game against Tampa, but I bet your boss didn't point that out. It's tough to be a knowledgeable fan in this market because any differing opinions get lumped with the fair weather fans.

@Cameron19 @vinoa @.Kong. Sorry, I didn't realize that it was those people you were referring to. This city can be the best when it comes to its fans. When the Leafs were perennial playoff hopefuls, those guys used to get mobbed on the streets by fans. These days the fan base and media have nothing to be positive about. Also, I thought salute-gate was happening outside of MLHS. I've been hearing about it all week on the radio, but I really don't think it's the fans that are outraged. Seems like the media wants to make this into a much bigger issue than it is.
Having said that, winning 1 game against a team that wasn't on its A game shouldn't get these guys proud enough to act all cocky. I think that's the biggest problem with this core, they win 1 game and it's parade route time, and get 1 goal scored on you and the 18 wheeler's going off the cliff. This team can act as smug as they want, it doesn't change the fact that they're not very good.
@.Kong. Wait are people on this board seriously complaining about the salute? It's a non-issue. The only "salute" this team needs to do is win games.

@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @TheLoovTrain @HHT That's a load of crap. This fan base can be the best in the world. People are very passionate in this city. Don't lump the majority of good fans with the few stupid ones who voice their displeasure the loudest. Look at the love the Raptors got during their playoff run last yea and the ACC during games this year. Just because the Leafs as an organization is a joke, that doesn't mean that this fan base that has been waiting 21 years for a championship is the problem. How dare they tune out the fans? If they want to tune out the media and online garbage, it's perfectly acceptable. These men are being paid a small fortune to play a fucking game. If answering some stupid questions is such a problem, get the fuck outta this city. Go play in LA where they don't know the difference between the Sacramento Kings logo and the LA Kings logo. If I seem angry, it's because I'm sick of this team blaming its fans, the same people that turned it into the biggest hockey franchise in the world.

@Mind Bomb @vinoa @Cameron19 @Leafs_17 Not if they can't afford him. Mackinnon, Eichel, ROR or Mackinnon, Eichel, Duchene. It's one or the other and not for long as we saw with Pittsburgh.
@Mind Bomb @Cameron19 @Leafs_17 Except the Leafs who'll get Duchene for a steal ;)

Really? Have you ever seen him play? He's not Parise, but his defensive deficiency is highly over stated.
@Dangle_My_Berries @vinoa He talked about how this team played for each other and they all wanted to come back this season to prove that last year wasn't a one off. Also about the sacrifices they had to make individually for the team to win. Just an amazing interview. He showed a lot of emotion and poise.

@Dangle_My_Berries Vasquez's exit speech is the best way to sum up this team.
@ProfessorRance @vinoa @Dangle_My_Berries This city and its sports fans have been waiting 21 years for a sniff of a championship. Hell we'd probably miss a week of work celebrating if we got to the conference finals.
