@Dogger All good. Did what we could.
To bad about missing out on
But besides that .. What I expected.

@TheLoovTrain @17Forever @Hammertownleaffan
Loan him to Chicago BlackHawks for a season ... We will pay the tab !!

It hurts my eyes already !!

@DJBrianBurke @Dan39 @HHT If he did ...
He wouldn't be on the ice ( or dressed in the line up )

So ... Now for draft position sake. We are all Cheering for :
??? Right ???
7 hours, 15 minutes ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@TheLoovTrain @17Forever yup !
Anyone who is Not McDavid and under 22 ?
Marlies bound !
7 hours, 19 minutes ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@TheLoovTrain @17Forever I was just looking at our drafts ... Maybe Nolan Vesey and Domonic Toninato on the 3rd lines if they leave NCAA .... but as for the top youth ...
Thats about it.
Its a slow build ... Everyone forgets ... as little as we had on our old NHL roster, the Marlies had even less. For 5-6 years Top Brass have been trying to build 2 teams from ONE draft.
Hard Stuff !!
7 hours, 25 minutes ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@TheLoovTrain yup ... dont forget Finn ...
Im still hopeful.
He has tools.

@TheLoovTrain @17Forever @dlbu dlbu E @mtommy
In for a penny ... right ?

@dlbu dlbu E @mtommy I hope to see Brown and Nylander be joined by the Goat and Verheg's next season with the Marlies.
I would like to see what depth we have in our older rookies.
Leaf hopefuls for next season:
not a stand out list to say the least but I would like to see if they can become some bottom depth that will cost us very little but provide solid minutes.

It was always a long shot that any of the core contracts with term would be traded before seasons end.
These leftover contracts are not salary dumps but Hockey trades and because of that will take more time and more information regarding next years cap ceiling.
Might as well see where we will be drafting before we decide who is next out of town.
Only thing I am disapointed in is missing out on the youth exchanging hands today.
To bad we didn't have the assets that either team wanted to grab these young hopefuls
Expecting anything more action today from the Leafs was always a big stretch.

What if ... What ... If !! we get McDavid in the draft ?
Still want Kessel gone ?
8 hours, 8 minutes ago on Dave Nonis Post-Deadline Media Address
@Komas Taberle @17Forever yup
14 hours, 56 minutes ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
@Komas Taberle @17Forever ahhhhh 6'2 , 205lbs ??
14 hours, 57 minutes ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
@Komas Taberle @17Forever a 22 year old 1st round pick who goes 6th overal who can put the puck in the net .. for two 2nds ??
I would have traded our NSH 1st for that.
And to a division rival as well ...
Like I said Head Scratcher
15 hours ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
Did Tampa really trade Brett Connolly to BOS ???
That is a head scratcher ...
15 hours, 5 minutes ago on 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread
@docmma @17Forever I'm in almost total agreement ... I assume ... Lupul and Bozak are gone in good trades ( maybe keep Lupul ) ... That said. I am about keeping Phaneuf over Kessel.
Higher return, Easier to aquire. Ages Better.
Might just be me ...
2 days, 9 hours ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson
@Dan39 @Xxxxxnew I agree ...
In many scenario's I have keeping Phaneuf but trading Kessel. IMO ( obviously )
2 days, 10 hours ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson
" IF " some how .... The Leafs can get a 1st line Centre in the next 2 years ... I would be very fine with keeping Kessel.
But .. I am just being realistic ... 10% chance at McDavid ( keep Kessel ) any other Centre drafted is 2 .. more like 3 to 4 years away ( trade Kessel )
All of this is assuming the Leafs can get the appropriate package back ( 2 high 1st rounders and a prospect )
or ( +A prospect and 1 high 1st rounder )
In 3 - 4 years moving Kessel will be very difficult task if you wish to get back a high return.
SO .. here we are, back to the same old problem post Sundin era ... We Need a Centre !!
@vinoa @17Forever Ya Thanks Bettman !!!
VEGAS .. CAROLINA ... ARIZONA ...
GOD forbid the centre of the Hockey universe ( CANADA ) should actually be aloud to STRUT !!
@vinoa @17Forever GM's are still operating under the old gaurd ... YES NMC NTC are crap. ... Old GM's need to figure this shit out ... OR blow up the Cap ... No frickin way The Leafs should be handicapped like this while bringing in what ?? 15 % of total NHL revenue ???
Like ... Come on !!
Why Can the Yankees be the Wankee';s but we have to be the Sharts !!!
Bullshit !! I call Bullshit !!
@Bruffins @sniperstar @17Forever
only buy closet Habs fans !!
Screw them all anyway !
2 days, 11 hours ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson
@vinoa Said it once and I'll say it a thousand more times ...
I Hate the CAP !!!
@TheLoovTrain I have been pushing for a JVR to NYI trade for months now.
to NYI - JVR
to TOR - Dal Colle and Pulock or ( Reinhart )
something like that.
@TheLoovTrain Nope ... I would still like to see 2 of Bozak, Keesel, JVR traded ...
Only JVR becuse he could bring back a TON of talent.
A playoff team would be licking there Chops if the Leafs put him on the market !
@Bruffins @17Forever You may be the only one ... I get alot of flack on here LOL
@MaxwellHowe @17Forever " IF " we are to keep some core ... Having the Vet back there that can still protect some youth .. Worst idea's have been stated .. FO SURE !
I could be just as fine if we moved Polak and kept Dion.
Put him back on his Right side and next year ...
RIelly / Phaneuf
Very okay with this if teams just don't want to give back in a trade.
I asume this is the unpopular position ...
@sniperstar yup ... Very noticed !!
@Anthony Petrielli @ingy56 Or ... you can have Lupul ... hmmmmm ??
@Claymish @17Forever @Dan39 For sure .. make the list.Top Dmen !!
Dion is in the top 20 HANDS DOWN .... top 15 ?? I say yes ... top 10 ?? NO ...
Contract is really spot on if you ask me ... but you dont have to. :)
@Hmmm @TheLoovTrain @zoidbergman @Dan39 I know right ? Screw that deal.
Im in for Weiss and + + but no money retained .. Now we can talk again.
@Dan39 If Detroit has there say ?? a 7th rounder in 2035 !
@Savo43 @17Forever @mtommy I would but still no way SJ does
Bernier Holland for a 1st and Wingles .... You have something here though.
I would think about trading Bernier.
I put him in the same category as Polak .. only if the deal is in our favour.
No point otherwise
@Savo43 @17Forever @mtommy a 1st ... ya ok ... but no way we get Wingels
@Savo43 @17Forever @mtommy
Thats to much though.
He is an RFA in a bad year.
@mtommy @Savo43 Soooo .... What
Bernier to SJ for 2nd 2015 and a 2nd 2016 ??
I dont reaaly know his value ... Goalies are a tuff one the last few years
2 days, 12 hours ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson
Could Chicago be dumping salaries now ??? Let this playoff go ... ??? hmmmm
@mtommy I would go Hanifin over Marner. I 'm not sure about the Ekblad Comparison but he still looks real solid. You can never have enough good young D. Still take Strome if he is there.
He looks the part .. could he bust ??? They all could ... damn drafting
The build needs to start somewhere.
@Darth Burke @17Forever @B_Leaf I like the Lupul trade some of the others have are a bit of a stretch.
Bozak is worth something
Polak is worth more then Tinordi
Bernier not being traded. No point yet ... and no way EDM trades there1st
@Darth Burke @B_Leaf I like it .. but I call DAL in the off season.
@Jay31 @17Forever .. Its not even that bad now ... Just wait a year when top 2 and 3 D are all making 8 mil a season .. Dions deal is goingt to be the norm. If it isn't already
@Jmessih @17Forever I love Detroits attitude ....
We wont trade our 1st or 2nd picks.
We wont trade our prospects
You have to take a crap player and bad contract back
OH ...and you have to eat salary ...
Wanna trade ???
The Balls on them !!
If DET wants to dump Weiss for Dion then the Leafs get to decide on some decent prospects !
And no frickin way we eat 2.5 mil per.
@Burtonboy @docmma @Jay_Berg They have picks to burn right now ... Don't forget you can only have 50 contracts on the books ... And they have so much youth coming up over the next few years.
@Jay_Berg That is one messed up deal ... He is great but he is 38 and still has ...
6 MORE YEARS to go !!! damn that is ugly
@ingy56 @docmma @Burtonboy @Jay_Berg Think ahead though ... He new his high priced shit wingers were off the books for picks this year and picked up a solid centre ( team guy )
He has the cap space to play ... Hell he had to pay money to get to the floor 2 years ago.
Core is Young and Cheap ... really don't care if he over paid a tad to get Bolland.
@docmma @Burtonboy @Jay_Berg Really ? I would take Floridas Situation he has built any day of the week and twice on Sundays
