@phaneufoundlander I'd rather see Kontiola on the 4th line with a couple of veteran wingers with Holland on the 3rd line. Must be nice for Carlyle to have NHL ready players competing for spots.

@barjv01 Kessel's already won an award, but I guess it wasn't major. Bernier and Reims with the Jennings.

@Bring the Cup Home @Cameron19 Only when Kessel passes his career best in assists. JVR's good, but let's not forget who carries that line.
2 days, 6 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
@Bring the Cup Home Kessel's a top 5 player in the league. Demar's not even a top 5 guard. Of course they have different summer objectives. Demar wants to get better because he's not elite. Kessel spends his offseason being a regular guy because he is elite. He's put in the time and effort to become one of the best players in the best league in the world. How much more do you want from him?

@Jmessih @c2amaral But you'll get a Tyler Biggs bobblehead...with the purchase of 4 tickets of course.
6 days, 3 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Loov returning to Sweden? Leafs invite Cal Heeter to camp?
@newkb @vinoa That's how I see Nonis as well. He's just the GM in title and that makes me a lot less nervous.
6 days, 3 hours ago on 10 Questions: Part 1 — Will Randy Carlyle Change?
@newkb To be fair, Nonis was responsible for last summer's bizarre moves. It only makes sense that he's on the hot seat. The only good thing is that we're not in a bad position. We could can Nonis/Carlyle and let whichever GM comes in clean house and we'd be able to get a lot from what we have. I'd rather see them do well this year, only because I can't stand all the fairweather fans who want to shit on this core for problems outside of their control.
@Loric76 @vinoa @sniperstar At least his acne cleared up.
6 days, 4 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Loov returning to Sweden? Leafs invite Cal Heeter to camp?
@sniperstar Still can't believe that Kessel lost. Damn Leafs fans not voting enough!
@Burtonboy @Cameron19 Aren't fancy stats a better indication of team talent over individual talent?
6 days, 5 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Loov returning to Sweden? Leafs invite Cal Heeter to camp?
@DeclanK @MaxwellHowe The Raptors are the best team in MLSE's portfolio. They're all heart and soul players. Must have been Defoe.
@Burtonboy @Cameron19 @wiski @MaxwellHowe Burke may have been a blowhard, but he always had his players' backs.

1 week ago on Rookie Tournament Game #1: Maple Leafs vs. Blackhawks
@Burtonboy It's a sign! Now we just need a guy named Lonn (Maple in Swedish) and we're going places.
@leafmealone He's under contract with MODO through 2015, so I'm guessing it was just an oversight. Or maybe there's more to it and he actually will be in the AHL this year.
@mike_84 @dlb Mad So he's the next Bozak?
@barjv01 Did we draft the whole Rupert clan like the Canes and their Staal collection?
@ Keon @vinoa @reenergized @Doorman Don't care about getting the admins to like me, but all this ban talk is annoying considering hockey's finally around the corner. Suck it up, they were supposed to be temporary bans. You guys are going on as if the admins are just trying to piss people off. Personally, I thought Phook was the most entertaining poster at times, but that's just my opinion. How about giving the other opinions a shot? Soon enough hockey will be back and your beloved regulars will be unbanned. Until then there's this new thing called the Internet to spend time on.
1 week, 1 day ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
@MaxwellHowe @FRyan It would be nice to see him at an affordable price before he makes the big club.
@reenergized @ Keon @Doorman Or in this case it's like the principal decided to discipline some students and the rest of them are getting upset about it. These threads have been hijacked by talk of banned posters for a while now. Instead of flaming on this ordeal, how about just sticking to the admins' wishes? They're not going to feel compelled to lift the bans if that's all people discuss on the boards. The long time posters represent 5-10% of all readers according to the guys who run the site. How do you expect them to not cater to the majority of their readers over the select few regulars?
@Burtonboy @Dangle_My_Berries @CanuckUKinToronto @Mattmark Gards had the best with 46% or something.
@mtommy @barjv01 LA Kings were the heaviest team last year. Sure there are a few small guys on every roster and St. Louis defied all expectations...that still doesn't mean all of our small players will pan out. No need to make assumptions that have nothing to do with reality.
1 week, 3 days ago on Spencer Abbott signs one-year deal
@Xxxxxnew To be fair, I wouldn't want that pressure from a place like Winnipeg. At least TO/MTL/Vancouver are vibrant cities with international recognition.
1 week, 6 days ago on Dave Nonis on TSN Radio
@Xxxxxnew Yeah not even Kessel and Ph9 have full NTCs.
1 week, 6 days ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@Cameron19 @Xxxxxnew So true. That contract itself is better than any sort of clause.
@Jmessih @vinoa @rustynail No but Bernier knows that only his best will cut it. It's not as if we don't have another capable young goalie who could step in if Bernier falters. No more silly goals from center ice.
2 weeks ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@Jmessih @rustynail With all due respect, Reims is a battler. He's going to give Bernier as much competition as any starting caliber goalie would. This will be a very interesting season to say the least.
@Knights2Leafs @wendelsway1 Anything can happen in the East. If the Scabs can make the Conference Finals, anyone can.
@Yan28 @Denied @vinoa He's a cancer survivor who's a top 10 hockey player in the world. Pretty inspirational story to me, even if he isn't all flashy like other stars. Not that people should look up to athletes, but at least Kessel is one that you can look up to as a person off-ice as well.
@wiski @Jmessih That's the post fist bump explosion.
@DeclanK @DJBrianBurke "Leafs fans found themselves stuck in crowds of disappointment, and walking out empty handed and emptier walleted. Come to think of it, maybe they did give the "game experience" to those who usually don't get it." That about sums it up.
@ingy56 @Cameron19 Don't forget Komi.
2 weeks ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@ingy56 I actually am excited to see what the Raptors can do in a newly shifted East. They could end up getting to the Conference Finals if Chicago and Cleveland beat on each other.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@Jmessih Thank god!! If I had to hear one more baseball update, I was going to lose my mind. At this point I'm even excited for basketball.
I'm going to assume that Nonis was on Tim and Sid instead of in them.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Dave Nonis on Tim & Sid
@Marlies Man Was wondering about that one myself. The article on the goalie SV% is really interesting. We have 2 very solid goalies on team and it should only help moving forward.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@ingy56 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Mcost61 Salad as a side of course...with heavy dressing.
@ingy56 @Murph2417 I'd like to see Holzer get a shot as a 6th/7th option. Hopefully it'll help us to move Franson for something we need.

2 weeks, 6 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Expansion Talk
@deedrag I think Tim's leaving because of Rogers/Bell not being able to let him run the show. He's obviously the best in the business so his leaving has to be more to do with ownership issues than any failure on Tim's part.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup: Expansion Talk
@LeafFan15 @vinoa We had a guy like that where I was growing up. He had other balls on his mind once his daughters started eyeing us during games. Next time he starts acting out, you should make sure to trash his house during Halloween.
@LeafFan15 They sound like dicks. Just apologize and try to keep your balls off their garage. You shouldn't have to find a whole new street because of 1 prick.
@MaxwellHowe @wiski @mike_84 Assuming the quote is from the airline. Unless we've gotten to the point where even "news" outlets start getting snarky.

@JWaterdrager He's comparing their playoffs hopes...which sadly have been similar over the years.
@ingy56 @vinoa For sure they made their wealth outside of hockey, but they're still going to be prudent about the way they spend their money. Even MLSE, with its deep pockets has come to realize that you need competent management to be truly successful. The fact that more players are being squeezed for every RFA year possible shows that owners aren't quite ready to start signing blank cheques.
@BoneChompski @ingy56 Not to be outdone, MLSE has hired an embryo to head the new Analytics department.
@ingy56 Owners are definitely concerned with long-term gains. These people didn't make their wealth through short sighted moves.
@Greg Fenton I'm sorry. I came off as a bit of a dick with that post. You are right about Clarkson's value, but odds are this expansion won't happen any time soon...if at all.
