@TheCanucksnaphook @Burtonboy Franson has looked like trash. He could use a sit.

@Yaknowwhat @MaxwellHowe @mcloki michelob ultras are the best of the bunch
@hoolihan @Yaknowwhat Also living in Ottawa, that would be hilarious. I would want to see that strictly for the trolling of Sens fans.
@TheCanucksnaphook I actually deal with this a bit in my line of work. Difficult to get cars on trains right now in Western Canada because all the oil and extraction equipment is taking up all the space on the trains and is a more lucrative business. Not sure why they're sending it by train, but that's why its gonna take so long.

@mcloki @MaxwellHowe @Alec Brownscombe Absolutely. Ashton brings a real nice gritty energy to the lineup. Even Smith started rolling there. Leivo looked good in very limited minutes. Need a bigger shakeup.

@Mind Bomb I already bought the Clark one and it is so dirty. HOWEVER, a Sittler winter classic and a Clark 80's jersey with the blue shoulders is a fantastic 1-2 punch.

Great article. I'm currently stuck in Ottawa and hate those regional blackouts. They currently air poker instead of Leafs games on Sportsnet. Cant wait to see the buds smash on a regular basis.

Couldn't watch the game last night (not that I would've wanted to with a score like that). What happened to Lupul?
@Mind Bomb @conebone69 Morning MB - the boys will be skating hard tonight. Nasty Nazem is back in the lineup and we'll take another 4-0 win from the Preds.

@Mind Bomb you said it brother
@djamon @conebone69 you're probably right actually. what he brings to the team isn't worth that much. you just rarely hear of guys taking pay cuts when UFA.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 2 yrs, $3M per
@PEIleafnation @conebone69 Dont hate it. I think in his role he could still be effective in an Age 33 season. He would sign for 3 years in a heartbeat. Might even take less to get him.
@-Keon- @Alec Brownscombe I like Smithson taking draws on the 4th line as well
@Conis agree. what do you think is a reasonable deal?
@charlieb83 @Pent_House There was follow-up afterwards where Kipper actually said that the Leafs had inquired on Schenn...and that it would cost Gards at least to get him. Nothing to really substantiate that specific rumor...but he did further it a bit.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Burtonboy Holland had a nifty little move last night as well. Style points.
@Jmessih this is very helpful for those of us at work looking for a quick update
8 months, 1 week ago on Game Preview: Leafs host JT’s Islanders
@dlb eh @conebone69 Its a very tough call. Need Reilly's offensive game. Ranger has been improving and was quite good vs MIN. Fraser's physicality in front of the net needed. Not a bad problem to have but not an easy decision.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Preview: Center-poor Leafs trudge into Buffalo
@dlb eh Good comment on Smithson's penalty. Interference was it? Zero replay, thanks TSN.
Any chance they go with 7 D again tonight? Or do they want to make sure both Blue Bombers are in the lineup tonight?
@ConnorCrisp Nope. Browser change probably a good idea. Two wrongs can make a right.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Uncle Otis From what I remember he has played a few real good shifts with Ashton in the last few games. Creates a nice cycle. Very rare to see from a Leafs team.
@CanuckUKinToronto never had a problem in chrome, but normally i cant get comments up in the ipad at all
@Komas Taberle @conebone69 I dont hate that the way Gardiner was buzzing last night
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Should Kadri have been suspended?
@rustynail @conebone69 Lupul and Raymond may not be horrible options. They could keep going with 7 D and hoping for the best out of one of those guys.
So IF there is a suspension, who do we go with down the middle vs. Buffalo? ahaha pretttty prettyyy thin
@wendelsway1 YES, thank you. How do they not bring up the Reimer concussion there? No suspension. Of course the immediate talk on the broadcast is about suspension.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Game in 10: Game #18, Wild 2 vs. Leafs 1 (SO)
@Uncle Otis @dlb eh yeah! him and healey would be a great combo.
tough to listen to that garbage when you dont get to watch most games.
i know i am a complete homer, but i wouldn't hate a broadcast crew that is at least a little bit into the leafs winning a game.
@dlb eh I was just writing a long winded post on this. I live in Ottawa and don't get too many games on TV during the week. Mike Johnson is such a piece of shit. Same with most CBC HNIC in the last year or two. Everyone is constantly shitting on the Leafs, and pointing out every bad play, constantly talking about shot totals. Its horrible to watch.
Had to turn off the TV last night and listen to Bowen instead.
fair enough - i dont think we're disagreeing on much here. you think he walks away with a letang deal?
@Cameron19 @Dan39 @conebone69 All I'm saying is that Suter is a better D man than Dion.
Earlier, you said: "Suter makes 12 million dollars a year. Dion is asking for 7. Fuck me, people still don;t understand basic math."
I responded by saying the money doesn't matter, its the cap hit that matters.
I have no problem with 7 or 7.5 over 7 bud.
@Cameron19 @conebone69 @Dan39 I'm just in a bad mood after last night's game hahah
@Cameron19 @Dan39 ahahah "you insult, because you're a neaderthal."
Look at what you post buddy.
@Cameron19 @conebone69 @Dan39 I want to pay him 5-6 million dollars per year less than Suter because that's what he's worth.
Do you actually think Dion should be making 12+ per?
I'm fine with $7 per over 7 years. Once you get over that (i.e. Suter territory) then you should be getting a Suter-quality D man, which Dion is not unfortunately.
@Cameron19 @conebone69 @Dan39 Suter's cap hit is 7.5, and you cant structure a contract like that anymore. Dion wants what, 7-8? Comparable cap hits. I dont care about the Leafs spending money, I care about them fitting everyone under the cap.
@Dan39 I love what Dion brings to the team but I have to agree with you on this one. Can't be too willing to give him elite $$. Suter is a prime example of what that money should get.
As long as we smash them this weekend...
Dont want anyone playing hard to impress a new (old) coach.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Preview: Leafs visit the stingy Minnesota Wild
@Jmessih against LA! Hilarious
Wonder what's going on with Liles. Why have him in the pressbox instead of with the Marlies? Cant be much of a chance he gets into a game any time soon. I know its only ~$900K in cap savings, but you might as well send him down from that perspective as well.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Leafs must bank points over next 10 games
@wiski @Burtonboy They were in full force in Ottawa last night. Truly a horrible sight...Sens and Habs jerseys everywhere.
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: Back to the Grindstone
@-Keon- ahaha good point. some injured team will get desperate and force things. some bad deals have been known to happen around the deadline. i'm certainly not advocating for the leafs to get involved with any vets on that roster.
@ingy56 @conebone69 for sure. guys like flieshman, upshall, and boyes will be sent.
@ingy56 i imagine there will be a firesale forthcoming
@Leafs rule @Pent_House So much waiting for form. He had a full season in the A last year and 15 games now. He gets paid handsomely to play hockey. He should be in form!
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Leafs Sign Jerred Smithson
@theacs1966 @dlb eh I'm interested to see how the whole D situation gets figured out.
Right now we got Liles sitting and doing nothing, and someone will have to come out for Fraser. The funny thing is that we have awesome depth but we need that big shutdown guy.
Wonder if we could deal from D depth and address needs elsewhere? I imagine a market will begin to materialize.
@-Keon- Franson definitely needs to be more defensively responsible, and I fall into the camp that thinks Ranger makes too many mistakes.
Not sure what to make of Gunnar yet. Have seen some good and bad.
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: Center Rumours Heat Up
@-Keon- I agree. Everyone is real hung up on getting a C for obvious reasons, but our defensive zone play has been a joke.
@Pent_House Newmarket. He beat up I guy I knew in high school.
