@Loric76 @Cloud09 @Mcost61 Phil perhaps, but no way we give up Dion. I say this a fan of Kessel. Also, if it's Kessel, they'd better be sending PK+ considering the bargain of a deal Kessel's on for the next 8 years.

@hoolihan Just to some apparently.

@hoolihan I don't recall your eyes warning us while Ph9 was playing the best hockey since coming here and was leading the team in +/-. This whole "my eyes tell me" is such subjective bs. I don't know what your prescription is, so I'll stick to what makes sense to me.
12 hours, 28 minutes ago on Friday Mashup: We’re Gonna Need a Montage
@hoolihan No he's saying that if people don't see the value Ph9 brings, then they're being ignorant. Dion plays on both special teams and leads the d in minutes and qoc. Subban has Markov to anchor the defense so can do his thing offensively. If anything, having Subban and Ph9 would be better than having just Subban since he can't play defense.

1 day, 10 hours ago on Jake Gardiner talks contract with Greg Brady
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Crosby, Malkin, Giroux, Getzlaf, Seguin, Pavelski, Thornton, Backstrom, Kopitar, Duchene were the leaders last year and it`s likely that it`ll be that way until Thornton`s replaced by Mackinnon for a while.
@Greg Fenton A depth player in Justin Williams just won it this year. It wasn't Kopitar, Quick, Gaborik, Carter etc.

@docmma Blame their drafting. If they had done Hall-Huberdeau-Murray or Seguin-Landeskog-Galchenyuk they'd be a different team.

@Xxxxxnew Thought it was Niedermeyer

@docmma Subban should ask for max. Bergevin had his chance to get him for a bargain, but the NHL drove his price up.
@drummond We have a #1 D and a young prospect who could end up being even better. How many "#1s" can 1 team have?
@TheCanucksnaphook Chick killer!

@BlueSmoke The boys have done plenty of articles about RC's systems on both offense and defense before. Your passive aggressive statement should be directed towards any other site except for this one. Even if the posters on here didn't know what a system was, MLHS visits would have taught them by now.
@-Keon The market for RFAs seems to be pretty consistent across the board these days. If Rielly continues to progress at this pace, there shouldn't be a risk with giving him an 8 year deal. If he struggles with increased competition, then they'll go the bridge deal route. Subban's pretty much set the stage for negotiating with young dmen.
@MaxwellHowe Don't think so, but it's his age and recent injuries that have me skeptical more than anything else. Moving Franson because we have Robidas/Polak would make no sense since he brings something that neither of those players do. Franny should get moved when our PP no longer has space for him....and I can't wait for that day.
@MaxwellHowe I think his point may be that Robidas might not be as good as Anaheim made him look because Beauchemin wasn't as bad as we made him look?
@BlueSmoke Where to begin with that one...Crosby and Malkin play together only on the PP. If anything, they were insulated from defensive coverage by Staal. Kopitar is the best player on his line, unless you think Gaborik is better than him. Toews and Kane get split up all the time. Seguin is becoming a better player for sure, but come on man. How many Dallas games have you seen to call him elite? Or are we just throwing that word around now? Benn plays on both special teams, is the captain, and the most defensively sound player on his line. Kessel's never had the luxury of playing with a guy with more skill than him and it shows with our results.
@BlueSmoke @vinoa Said Seguin doesn't have to be the best player on his line because of Benn, who plays a solid 2way game. Plus to say Spezza IS and undisputed 1C is pretty silly. He was at 1 point in his career, but he's not the same player he was 5 years ago.
@BlueSmoke None of those guys are currently at the undisputed 1C level like Toews, Crosby, Bergeron, etc. Seguin's actually insulated from having to be the best player on his team and line by having Benn around.
@Jay_Berg Guys like Krejci, Bergeron, Giroux, O'Reilly give me hope that we too will be able to find great talent with lower picks.
@Mind Bomb lmao. I'm surprised there haven't any posts about Subban's character or him being a rat.
2 days, 18 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@MaxwellHowe They're both taking veteran minimum salaries.
@Jay_Berg Mathematically that's an infinite increase.
@lukethenuke This was from this year so it's as current as it gets.@dlb Mad Yeah $70-80k seems to be the rough household average.
3 days, 5 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@lukethenuke You're right Statscan just released a report on average income being $48k+.
@Cameron19 I thought there was a 2nd class of UFA status for guys over 27?
@Mattmark $50k is significantly more than average salary.
@Burtonboy I think Johnston broke the Gards contract.
3 days, 6 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Burtonboy I think true to his word, Timmy's brought in younger guys to help the entire MLSE brand transition to a more current and relevant organization. Guys like Masai and Shanny are forward thinking and that's what TO sports has lacked for a while. Ownership's finally bringing in the right people to run the show from top to bottom.
3 days, 10 hours ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
@LeafsForLife My friend and I were comparing Masai and Shanny the other day. They have very similar approaches to the way they conduct their business.
@Doorman Because there are 6 Canadian defenders better suited to playing Babcock's style isn't a knock on Subban...it's more of a statement on just how stacked Canada's defense was. This is as silly as the people who say what did Kessel accomplish at the Olympics.
3 days, 15 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@hoolihan @colino17 Are we looking at tenure as GP or just when they came to the Leafs? because if so, Orr was the only 2009 signing to play all 82 games.

@Jordan29 Raymond was the other one for me. Hindsight I guess.
@Mitch92 Nah, but his Corsi and Fenwick will be way better than the Thrills...because #math

@dlb Mad Yeah hopefully this summer's the last we have to talk about Clarkson's lack of success.
@dlb Mad Ricoh's ice vs. Clarkson
@dlb Mad Yeah but at this rate, won't Franson be a little too expensive for the bottom pairing by his next contract? Even $3 million + is a lot to be buried so low on the depth chart.
@colino17 There's a chance one of these guys is traded at camp. I get that no one really signs and trades in the NHL, I just meant that the guys we picked up won't make us look bad for getting traded this year.
@BlueSmoke These guys are on 1 year contracts. They know exactly what their worth is. It's not like moving a 7 year contract in its 2nd year.
@sniperstar Sure? I was actually more impressed with Rielly's pass than Holland's 1st goal, but Holland definitely looks like he has the skills to be a decent NHLer. Maybe amazing was too strong a word, but I still think he's going to be an impact player.
4 days, 1 hour ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@The_Polish_Cannon Tried to find a video of them together, but I stumbled on his 1st goal instead. Holland probably won't be able to handle 1st line minutes this year, but he's going to be an amazing player.
4 days, 2 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@Jordan29 They do play the PK together as well. That would be pretty interesting.
@The_Polish_Cannon @Jordan29 Bozie will feel it the most.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe I thought it was pretty punny.
