@The_Polish_Cannon @deedrag HMMMM????? Possibilities are endless this year at camp.
10 hours, 30 minutes ago on Friday Mashup: We’re Gonna Need a Montage
I'm hoping for Kadri-Nylander-Brown at training camp. I would like to see them go up against JVR-Bozak-Kessel.

@Jordan29 @deedrag That one has good movement. Does it stay wet from sweat a lot or does it dry fast?

@Jordan29 Have you tried the Warrior Ritual chest protector yet? No bruising or welts guaranteed.

@dlb Mad @deedrag GILMOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@Bruffins @deedrag I know a witch doctor that can help you with that Bruff. He, He.
@Bruffins 92 and 93 were great years as a Jay fan. Helped with the hockey drought.
@-Keon @Burtonboy Hockey is an art, that's why it's so hard to use math effectively by it self with it. Art uses feelings and emotions math doesn't.If using stats where everything, there would be a team winning every year, all the time. It helps but is not the whole picture.
I'm worried about the new coaching staff and how they will get along with RC. There were too many cooks in the kitchen last season. I hope Shanny/Nonis deal with anarchy at the first sign of it not wait till season is over so it effects the players.
2 days, 6 hours ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
I'm not going to say i liked your piece AP. If you get too many likes some big corporation will steal you away from us and we'll have to listen to some idiots' drivel. On second thought screw it, I liked your piece! There, I said it, now some big media corporation will be trying to poach you from us. Keep the good work up MLHS staffers.

@The_Polish_Cannon @sniperstar @deedrag You mean Connor McDavid?
3 days, 7 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@sniperstar @deedrag Don't like what we'd have to give up for him now. If we wait we can get him as a FA or through a trade, if not move on to someone else. No offer sheets!
@Bruffins Made you sweat there didn't I?
@Bruffins @deedrag My she is a he.
@Bruffins @deedrag NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
No more PK trade talk plz. When Reilly or Gardiner win the Noris you`ll all see it isn`t necessary to sell the farm for a Noris winning Dman. On a different note, with all these moves the management have made did we pick up any faceoff specialists? This needs to be addressed.
With these depth moves Toronto made, it seems they are stacking the cupboards with canned and dried goods. When famine hits the other teams before the first trade deadline Toronto will be in a position of power for once, instead of weakness. They will be able to fill their needs fairly well if the players play to their potential and if RC sticks to the plan.

@Jordan29 Someone told me this one doesn't leave any bruising or marks.
4 days, 5 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@Greg Fenton @Jordan29 You got me worried now GF.
4 days, 6 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
@Greg Fenton @Jordan29 LOL!!!!!!!
@Greg Fenton @deedrag @LeafsGuru @Hifi75 @Cloud09 I can only dream for now.
@Greg Fenton @LeafsGuru @Hifi75 @Cloud09 I know Lupul prefers to play left side but would love to see a second line of Kane-Kadri-Lupul.
Finally Leaf fans have come to their senses. Congrats James. Some of us still appreciate what you did for us in a shortened season that no one had us in making the playoffs, let alone almost beating Boston.
1 week ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
I'm starting to get the feeling Nonis was pressured to get Clarkson and Bolland to give them instant gratification. Seems very interesting Nonis was kept but 2 assistants weren't. I'm wondering if Puolin and Loiselle were stirring the pot with owners, derailing Nonis off his chosen patient rebuild plan with draft choices. These moves in the summer smell of buying time, until the prospects are ready to make the jump to the big leagues in the future.
1 week ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Why does it seem like a lot of people are looking over Connor Brown? Coaches can't say enough about his leadership qualities and determination. Our right wing is going to look pretty deadly in 2 yrs. Kessel, Brown, Nylander (depending on which way he develops, C/RW).
1 week, 1 day ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
With all these moves I hope they make another one concerning nutrition, skating and conditioning. They can totally over spend without any cap on these areas. With so many already using Barb it's about time they bring her into the fold along with a conditioning guru and nutritionist guru.
1 week, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Dubas Mania
@wendelsway1 @Mcost61 We need some patience with Franson as his trade value right now is sort of low. All in good time WW1. But i agree he needs to go so they are finally rid of players that can't seem to shake the bad collapse from there psyche.
1 week, 3 days ago on The pros and cons of trading Cody Franson
I see we still keep Franson. Oh well, time to make the best of it. Reimer on the other hand doesn't worry me too much. After seeing Flynn blank the prospects and his being 6'7" I've got some hope that we'll be fine if we traded Reimer. Hope Flynn makes it, it would be great to have someone his size cover the net (literally), LOL!
1 week, 4 days ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
This proves that Holland is a real team player. He's showing a huge amount of maturity here. I hope he becomes a great centre for us.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Maple Leafs re-sign Peter Holland to 2-year, $1.55 million deal
@Loric76 @mcloki This is what North Bay and Sudbury feels like all summer. I miss being up there good fishing.

@Mcost61 @Mind Bomb @FrycersGhost Think Nylander and Brown and you'll sleep better at night. HE HE!
2 weeks, 3 days ago on 10 Midsummer Thoughts on the Maple Leafs
Thx for the analysis AP. Between you and Elliot it's hard for me to pick as top writer here for MLHS. Thx to Alec and Declan for having the foresight (unlike Leafs Management at times) to bring in good pieces to the team. Point 6 really made me go OH! It makes sence now why they didn't pick Eakins to take over after Wilson. Seems he lacked the good cop bad cop ability needed to coach these players. I guess that's why I liked Burns so much as a coach.
@Bruffins @Cloud09 One of the most important things they need to train for is flexibility. It can prevent a lot of injuries or make them not as bad. Mass can be good but at a certain point it will give you diminishing returns as you sacrifice mobility and speed for mass.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Monday Mashup: The Dog Days are Here
Oh no somebody can't do enough chin ups! Oh no somebody is enjoying life at a barbeque! Can the trolls lay off the guys. They'll get into shape soon enough. With todays technology in sport nutrition and advancements in training techniques anybody can stack on 12 to 20 pounds of muscle a year without steroids. Gone are the days of killer reps and strict diets just to gain 5 pounds of muscle per year.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Dewy Keon Hogturd It's just shut up money. They don't want the fired coaches revealing what's really going on.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Steve Spott, Peter Horachek named Maple Leafs’ Assistant coaches
I wonder if Blel Kadri is related to Nazim Kadri. He just won a stage in the Tour De France?
Afternoon all. Listened to that TSN interview about Nylander and other prospects. This might just be the lucky break we needed for the future. Even though our management wanted him badly it seems lady luck helped us out with no one picking him earlier. Hope to see a line of Kadri-Nylander-Brown in the future.

3 weeks ago on Steve Spott, Peter Horachek named Maple Leafs’ Assistant coaches
I hope Nylander turns out to be like or better than, a guy i loved to hate back in the 70's, Robert Thore Nystrom.(RW).
The biggest thing that the Leafs need is something that is lacking in today's world? Wisdom! Wisdom comes through experience and a willingness to learn (being humble). I'm starting to like what i hear and see about Nylander from coaches and others on his character. He seems to be humble and seems to want to learn everything he can from others, thus begins his quest for wisdom. Need more players with this ingredient in their character on the roster.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Prospect Camp Pressers: Brendan Shanahan, Jim Hughes
I'm wondering if MLSE finally goes with a schedule that doesn't have that many Saturday games as a must. I noticed Boston had the best schedule Where everyone was 3 to 4 games up at times all season long. This can be helpful rest for the players on your team. Better to start slow like that and lock up a playoff spot, then you just rest your stars more till the playoffs. It's not like the Sushi crowd won't show up during the week to go to the games.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: The Leaf – Episode 9
@barjv01 @deedrag Yep.
@vinoa @deedrag This just proves you'll only get a center thru the draft period.
I just heard that Toews and Kane are off the block with contract extensions is this true?
@Anthony Petrielli @DeclanK @ingy56 @mr_hanie My point exactly AP. What's the difference? He might as well be a Leaf . He goes to the net which I like and think we need more of this from players. He'd be good for Kadri to do his shit and great to have a guy that can drop the mitts too.
@ingy56 @hoolihan @deedrag @MaxwellHowe I wanted that too but almost everyone here likes Lupul all of a sudden too much. Trade Lupul's injury prone style of play for someone younger to play on Kadri's left wing. Right wing will be overflowing soon (Brown, Nylander)
@ingy56 @deedrag Ok throw in Franson.
Would anyone here trade Clarkson and Reimer for Kane? His troubles in the peg don't worry me. Dion was having similar struggles before he was traded and everyone here likes him and won't trade him so i don't understand the Kane hate? I used Clarkson because of the Salary being similar to Kanes'.
