@hometeem What this shows, is the state of denial the owners and management were in. They reacted like the dinosaurs did to impending doom. They were oblivious to it. Just like the dinosaurs went extinct, we need more people in this organization to become extinct from the Leafs organization.
6 hours, 27 minutes ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
I don't understand why people say that Franson will garner 6 to 7 million but want to trade Dion for scraps? Who would you want playing hard minutes or in the playoffs, Dion at 7 million or Franson at 6 to 7 million? Dion has worth. It's just that right now, The GMs (Vultures) that are asking, sense a wounded animal and are trying to fleece the Leafs. Better to wait until the playoffs are over and just before the draft to move those types of players. Also, before next season's deadline can be more advantageous to us to get a better return, as the players in question could have a bounce back start to the season.

@TheLoovTrain I might be watching the team that gets McDavid. Bound to be more exciting than watching the Leafs go thru the motions for another year.

The Leafs need to get a center at this draft period. Next year even if you finish last you are no longer guaranteed 2nd so trying to get a 1C can be harder than before.
1 day, 19 hours ago on Game 62 Scoring Chances: Canadiens 4 vs. Maple Leafs 0
So, who also thinks they are trying to do a "outside the box thinking" trade? I think they deal someone we don't expect. Kadri or JVR. Everyone is expecting the usual suspects like Dion, Kessel, Bozak, Gardiner, Lupul, or Reimer (although Bernier is making for a strong case lately also). I just don't see Nonis getting rid of Bernier after that being his move. Then again, it could have been Lew interfering with the GM and wanting a guy he thought was amazing from his tenure at L.A.
@Yaknowwhat I want him gone next if possible then Lupul. This will keep the tank alive and going in the right direction.
2 days, 8 hours ago on GDT: Game #62, Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., CBC)
The deadline has been interesting but we still have too many players playing in the "Don't give a shit" side of the "Give a shit meter".
@docmma First hit Maxipad!
@Lonsmos2 A Big Loser. 100 miles, now that's something.
@mcloki @deedrag 20 or so games to go and only one direction to go after that. DOWN!
Someone take the bull by the horns and end Prices shut out!
If we are going to tank, let's at least bring up Orr, McLaren and who ever else will fight and just unleash them for the next games especially against the Habs. The Leafs have nothing to lose at this point. You can keep the tank going, get some value from those players and the fans will have something to entertain them and cheer for. :)
Tank nation keeps rolling along.
2 days, 9 hours ago on GDT: Game #62, Toronto Maple Leafs at Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., CBC)
@TheColborneUltimatum @NinetyThree @rustynail Lupul hardly visible tonight.
@Xxxxxnew I think they should keep Nylander and Brown down next season until they can establish a roster with size and that will protect the newbies from the cheap shot artists.
@rustynail Wow. That's McDavid territory.
I love how all the Habs homers are going GA GA over Price. He's done in the playoffs first round this year. He's peaking now and won't have anything left for the first round, That's it dumbass, keep pushing hard, you can't sustain those type of numbers much longer. Lady luck will run out soon enough.` What will the Habs fans do when they are knocked out in the first round this time? I know, they'll riot in the streets and set cars on fire. Habs have some of the most classless fans anywhere. Just like the homers commentating this game.
I think Shanahan will keep Nonis. Not because he is some genius Gm but because he knows the ropes and has the contacts. This is valuable. The new crew haven't played with the big boys enough so they lack that experience. Nonis might also possess the right charisma needed to make other GMs comfortable when dealing and that goes a long way. Like it or not I think this is what Burke saw in him and what Shanny might too. By himself it seems he struggles with some decision making but under the right guidance/guy, he probably can succeed more in a GM's position.

WTF!!!! Leonard Nimoy Died today!!!! Wow he inspired a whole generation along with Shattner. "RIP SPOCK"!

Holland has been playing with some grit lately. I like this! :)
3 days, 18 hours ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
@docmma If we are serious about tanking it has to be Dion first.
@Potcy @deedrag What did Roy say?
I think the Bozak+ for ROR is a possibility now since we have cap space if we go over. ROR, Kadri, Holland and whoever we snag in the Draft (Marnar/Strome/McDavid) down the middle, might just give us a shot at something in the future. Do it Nonis! Do it!
3 days, 19 hours ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
@TuckerForPunishment @deedrag Well, this would hinge on them not winning anymore games but even that can change. I get the feeling Arizona is more committed to tanking than Buffalo.
3 days, 20 hours ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
@Dan39 @deedrag We thought Clarkson couldn't be moved and it happened so anything is possible. :) Plus Kessel is a great piece of Americana for them to sell to the public. Kane and Kessel sounds real good to start your rebuild.
I wonder if the Sabres would do a trade for Kessel. Kessel is a sure thing, where the lottery isn't. They would have Kane and Kessel to start off there rebuild. If we offered Kessel, plus Nash's first could we get their first 2015, a player and a prospect?
@djamon @deedrag We need the window Sill to come down on him. :)
4 days, 8 hours ago on GDT: Game #61, Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN)
Bettman must of sent the memo out to the refs to insure the Leafs don't climb too high.
The Philly D knocked Holland down into Mason. The "DICK" mason hits Holland first with his stick. Holland then responds back. At this point Mason whacks him and then throws a sucker swing to top it all off. Typical Philly bullshit.
@Sparrow Just our luck I guess.
@Brozak @deedrag Exactly, we will make 1 playoff round and throw away any chance to build something special because everyone will become overzealous.
If Montreal beats us on Saturday it will kill any momentum we gained in the last 2 games and sink this ship further.
Sucking for another 5 - 6 years with this core is not my idea of a rebuild. Especially when we don't even pick in the top 5 during those years.
@Luke_R Been there, done that. Not working! :)
The three guys we needed the most to do well for trades are doing it. I can put up with 2 more wins if it increases what we can get in return.
@JWaterdrager @deedrag But Bozak will be gone by the deadline according to everybody practically so he doesn't count.
4 days, 9 hours ago on GDT: Game #61, Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN)
@JWaterdrager @deedrag On this team he's better than what we have. :)
I kind of hope that Jokinen stays. He could really teach our young guys how to win faceoffs, which we need
Trade! Trade! Trade! TRADE BOZAK QUICK!
Lol I just went trolling in dangerous waters (Habs waters) You got to hear their fans. They are drooling over Kessel and think that their GM can pull off a miracle and get them Phil. Keep dreaming. Hope you choke in the first round, four straight losses!
@DylanJ Flexshot Extraordinaire!
@TheColborneUltimatum @deedrag U get the feeling we are going to have even more cap space come the draft.
4 days, 10 hours ago on GDT: Game #61, Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN)
@TheColborneUltimatum @deedrag Hope not. Stay in a holding pattern for now.
So we have about 8 mil off the Cap now for next season?
@NinetyThree You forgot "EVER" :)
4 days, 11 hours ago on Leafs trade David Clarkson for Nathan Horton
I think the internet is going to break with this news! Now get us McDavid and "ALL" is forgiven!
If they want to make the draft exciting, make it an auction. "Now up, Conner McDavid. We start the bid at 2 million, do I have 2.1 million? 2.1 from the Shanny! 2.2 from Sather! Wait, 10 million from Shanny! Wow! what a bid!" You get the idea. ;)

It's too bad they didn't make Eakins head coach. He has given the
Oilers the tank job we could only dream about for less money too than what RC will receive.
