@Jmessih @Hammertownleaffan @BoneChompski @Xxxxxnew ahahaha....no problems. I'm a realistic sports fan (most of the time) and I realize we are heavy underdogs. The Cats have been bad for so long though, and got smoked last year in the final. I mostly want to see a win for my father, as he is as die-hard as they come (both the Leafs and the Cats).

Nicely done buddy. Awesome read, as always. I suggested a second PP line of Kadri-Holland-Lupul as well. I just can't see how taking a dynamic player like Kadri off of the PP will "spark" him. Set the line up for success, and let the percentages balance out. The kid will score.

@Burtonboy @djamon He is by far the most creative player we could possibly put on that second unit. His shot isn't bad either. Couldn't he play the wing if they really wanted Holland out there? Kadri-Holland-Lupul?

@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy I'm honestly surprised when I find out there's any record that Gretz doesn't hold.

@Burtonboy @Hammertownleaffan He's like getting one of those 500 dollar remote control helicopters. It's fun as hell to have for like a month, and then you're like, "OK, what else does this F'N thing do?". Then you put it in your closet for 5 years, before throwing it in the trash. In this case, trash=Russia.

@Jmessih Those guys could cause some havoc down low. I honestly don't remember Booth's game at all, but from what I hear he likes to crash the net.

@Anthony Petrielli They should throw Bolland in the mix while they're at it...package Bolland and Fleischmann at a combined 10mill/year for a whopping 2 points so far.

@Anthony Petrielli Oh go get me Fleischmann...4.5 mill/year and 2 points so far this year? Solid!

@Omac13 @Jmessih I really don't think the organization is in a position to trade ANY centers. We have absolutely nothing in the pipeline (barring Nylander playing C in the show, and I have no idea if that will happen). Trading Kadri would be a horrible mistake IMO....we would be left with Bozak and Holland and nothing else. If Bozak were to go down (which happens often) we would be completely screwed.

@Dogger I just felt like slipping a Maguire reference in there. I love that Bowen is a homer. I feel the rest of the guys go way out of their way to support the teams/players that the Leafs are playing in order to not appear biased towards the Leafs at all. Bowen is on our side, love that.

@Pent_House Ya I just caught on to this too...what the hell is the implication here? Is it that the players were mad at the fans? The coaching staff? Why does anyone even care?

@sniperstar @Hammertownleaffan Honestly, I dont care which shot he works on. I just think he would be twice as productive if he could wire it a little more. He generates a lot of chances.

I read an article where Reilly said he doesn't work on his slap shot and doesn't care about it. I really wish he would work on it. He could generate a ton more score chances than when he just flicks it at the goalie from the blue line.

@DeclanK @Luke_R @Hammertownleaffan I'll always have time for Lupul. He loves the team, speaks the truth (not just "we didn't compete"), and generally seems like he gives a shit. I'll always like him, even with the defensive warts. Plus, I just got his jersey.....

@cryptotho @DeclanK The Komisarek buyout is what kills me. Bought him out in order to have the cap space to sign Clarkson, and then we needed that buyout in order to clear out Clarkson. Yeesh.

@DeclanK @Hammertownleaffan I barely follow junior at all. I really dont think we could get ourselves to the point where we are bad enough to get McDavid or Eichel (but we could sure as hell try). Are there any other centers that are highly touted? I'll do a little research myself.

@Burtonboy What the hell happened in that game? I didn't see, but it was only 2-0, and the shots seemed relatively even? Maybe "good losses" are what I've become used to as a Leaf fan.

@DeclanK @Hammertownleaffan I will also add that I am easily convinced as I read the great arguments on here all the time. For people like my father, telling him that we have to generally abort and start over is like ripping his heart out. But honestly, who cares? People say that our fanbase won't take a full rebuild. But ticket sales are down from what I hear, and the general attitude for most hardcore fans is apathy at this point. Peel everything back for a couple years and let the ticket sales down-tick slightly. Sell it to the fan-base and board as an investment. You give up a couple years of easy money for what could be many years of a contending team and the subsequent playoff revenues. 

Bring some pride back to the leaf. Make free agents want to come here. Cure my stomach ulcers.

@DeclanK @Hammertownleaffan Ya man I agree. I love the line about how difficult it would be to even retain what we have next year, much less add and improve upon it. That gives me such a sick feeling in my stomach.
