What the team needs is what Leiw was referring to? Guys that don't cave to the pressures experienced here. You need guys like Kessel believe it or not. If you get, or keep guys that like the lime light, they will be destroyed here by the media, public and the legacy they are trying to live up to. Low key, high performing is what to shoot for, using whatever means necessary to achieve this.

@Anthony Petrielli @deedrag@Yan28 Agreed. I say hold off on him. We're still in limbo also because we don't know what a seasoned player like Shanahan sees. He's actually been in the dressing room to know what really is going on. He's also been on 5 different teams. That can also expose you to different situations you won't experience, playing for one or 2 teams. Let's have a bit of patience for once and see what happens. What's the worst that can happen we finis last and have a shot at First draft pick or second next year? I'm willing to wait for that.

@Anthony Petrielli @Yan28 If the coaching staff implements a looking out for each other, "TEAM SPIRIT" the injuries will come down. People won't take runs at your players if they know others will pummel them into the pipes under the ice. That's the first thing they need to fix. They need a pack mentality like wolves have. Everything you do is for the pack. Lupul's only problem if you can call it that, is he plays recklessly with his body. I'm not saying Lupul is like Bobby Orr in points or defensively but he does risk his health like Orr did with his style of play. But we can't forget, unlike others near the bad stretch, he actually gave it his all and didn't quit. Not too many guys on the team did that.

@Jimmie Dorey That explains why RC is a fail at "DEFENSE" with the team!
17 hours, 53 minutes ago on Toronto Marlies Set To Open 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs Friday Night In Milwaukee
@Murph2417 @deedrag@Jimmie Dorey They really need to devise a new system for defensemen. This system should include stats that are related to actual defensive skills. Then give an award for it. Not the "I score so i must be an awesome defensemen crap they have now.

@Jimmie Dorey @deedrag But they named him the top AHL defenseman. Doesn't that count for something?

Do you think the Leafs will put TJ in the line up this year finally?
18 hours ago on Toronto Marlies Set To Open 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs Friday Night In Milwaukee
@CanuckUKinToronto @Cameron19@deedrag It's crazy watching other teams in the playoffs actually have forwards come back and help out and cover the point. That's Not just the teams fault their, That's RC's fault also.
1 day, 19 hours ago on Frederik Gauthier joins Marlies, Andreas Johnson gets SHL rookie of the year recognition
@Cameron19 @deedrag that's the biggest start in the right direction.
@dlb meh @deedrag They were burnt out. No goalie tandem or Goalie can sustain winning for 40 games with 40+ every night.
@Burtonboy @NotTheCanucksnaphook I dislike the Habs and hope they don't. But after watching the terrible calls the refs have been making in their favour I think you might be right. I see the Avs and Habs in the final. Fuckin refs.
Morning gents and ladies. Been watching other games and noticed a lot of the so called great goalies really suck. Here we were crucifying our goalies who faced 40+ shots a night and then you see guys like Quick face more than the accustomed 18 to 25 shots let many in once the shot pace picked up. I guess we in Toronto don't appreciate what we have in Reimer and Bernier. Even Price starts to suck when you get into the 30+ shot range on him. So, the conclusion I'm getting from all of this? Toronto's defensive play sucks. It was never their goalies. We have 2 number one starting goalies period. Anyone who's talked smack about them should dig a hole and stick their head in it. And if you even entertain a trade for one of them you better get something huge in return or don't trade them.They are top ten in the league. Especially on any other team.
Why are people hating on Kessel today?

Anyone like Dylan Strome as a possible choice for centre in the 2015 draft? He seems more of a possibility to get than a McDavid.

@Belfour20/JB-45 @deedrag Yep sure seems that way.
3 days, 15 hours ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
Bet you any money tampa wishes they'd kept St Louis now for the playoffs!
@Murph2417 @deedrag@vinoa Got it.
3 days, 17 hours ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
@Murph2417 @vinoa@deedrag Do you mean complete asshole?
@vinoa @deedrag I'm thinking we cannibalise Pittsburgh if they get knocked out in the first round?
@vinoa @shwhalen I'm starting to believe that if you had a Lucic type with Clarkson he would be really good.
@vinoa @deedrag Damn how would we swing a good young D without tanking the next few years?
Ok if we trade Kadri and franson for PK Subban would this help Dion out and round out our defence?
Dion - Gardiner
PK - Reilly
Gunner - ?
I don't know how we would get someone good for D that's young unless we give up Kadri?
Another reason to hate this organization. Fuckin habs win again against Tampa. That should've been us. We were in that spot. I bet you the final is going to be the AVS against the Habs. Oh the wicked and cruel irony of it all!!!!
@Murph2417 @deedrag HE! HE!

Maybe they should make it that any contract locked in for more than 5 years can not have a NTC?
@Murph2417 @deedrag@DWCMLHS OK I'll give you that one.
@Murph2417 @DWCMLHS@deedrag See, everyone is soooo negative already geez.
@~Keon Seems almost the same 182 to 170
So MacKinnon is 6 foot tall. Where as Connor Brown is 5'11". I think we have a elite talent in our lap and we don't even appreciate it or know it.
@Dougie Wraparound Another coming of Lemieux?
@ShiftyD It was a good game to watch. I noticed that CBJ would not make stupid long cross ice passes when at the point. They would pass it around to the left or right side almost every time. No stupid chances.
The more i see the different scenarios proposed on here the more i think we might only have one real choice to pursue? Take a few steps back before we can take any step forward.
@djamon @Jordan29 Then the league should raise the cap way more if they are going to allow NTCs. I think in the future it will become more common to have a NTC and it will start to pose more headaches for owners.
@Murph2417 @Jordan29@deedrag LOL!
@Murph2417 @Jordan29@deedrag Yep same here. They used to send me where no one wanted to work and i was the guy that said yes, all do it everytime. To me that's just an ungrateful attitude, especially when they make the money they do.
@mike_84 @deedrag That's a union type gravy train deal.
Owners should really fight for no more NTC. With the cap it really fucks things up!
@Xxxxxnew @djamon@deedrag Ok then what we really need is to fortify the wings with heavy hitting, forechecking punishers that can pass the puck or go to the net.
@Xxxxxnew @deedrag Yeah looking at all that Cali fine ass in the sun, would be hard to leave too.
@Jordan29 @deedrag NO! 2 Komarovs' would be better!
@Jordan29 @deedrag I understand but i think we need a guy like that. Boston has got one , Montreal has got one, heck all the good teams have a dirty hitting, grinding, in your face type player. If we got some on the farm bring them up and fortify this team.
@Murph2417 @deedrag I know he's dirty but that would make him good for Kadri because he would draw attention away from Kadri.
@Murph2417 @deedrag I'm thinking
Torres - Kadri - Clarkson?
@Xxxxxnew @deedrag He's on san jose.
5 days, 6 hours ago on Morning Mashup
@djamon @deedrag Trade Franson for him and a pick or prospect?
@Xxxxxnew @deedrag He was raised in Toronto.
@Jordan29 @deedrag He seems like a good forechecking guy to help Clarkson out and maybe with Kadri.
