@Jon5200 totally agree. i think shanny's come in with 2 philosophies guiding his ship until he has more experience. 1. Hire the best people possible and let them do their job (except the coach. he's waiting to have a conversation with babcck, then he'll know what to do next). 2. long term success comes from draft and development.

@Savo43 @Jay31 @jayman87 too many guys in the same weight class as yakapov coming up. skilled but soft. we need some big, skilled players too.

@Dan39 @Xxxxxnew i love the way Dubas thinks. Glad to have him.

how did clarkson look on CBJ's first line last night?

@peterbleafs @sharkbabysitter unless we get something completely worthwhile, i kinda hope kessel stays and we get him a true #1 center and he lights it up big time.

@peterbleafs bozak is gone, but lately i've been hoping jvr goes with him. he's lazy as shit and so clueless in our end it hurts.

@docmma @hometeem @leafmealone @BrandonCheema i agree. i think he's actually a worse defender than kessel, and i don't know how it flies under the radar like it does.

@Lescott doesn't cost a dime against our cap unless he plays. we're home free.
3 days, 1 hour ago on Leafs trade David Clarkson for Nathan Horton
where the hell is cam for all of this? did he get a job with the leafs front office? did he make this happen?
dubas, shanny, hunter and nonis are a tight circle. all we need to do now is add a little babcock.
@.Kong. what part of this aren't you understanding? it doesn't count against cap unless he's activatited, so it isn't costing us shit. if he's activated it's cause he's ready, in which case he'll be worth every penny. this is fucking genius. we're free of clarkson's contract.
@gjdevlin not nonis alone. but i will say this: dubas, shanny, hunter and nonis are doin some business! no need to break up that circle. all we gotta do is add babcock to it.
@byebyeclarkson if horton comes back it'll be because he's ready. in which case it will be worth every penny. this is fucking amazing. i almost can't believe it.
@ProfessorRance @Mattmark @Jmessih
i love lupul. he play with heart and he's one of our true leaders. problem is his contract is closer to $9mill because he only plays half the season. if we can get good return, then yes, trade him. if we can't he'd be a great guy to keep around to help usher the young ones through the rebuild.

@DylanJ @Jon5200 marner is too damn small to be a first line center. can you see him competing against getzlaf, thorthon, kopitar?
6 days, 5 hours ago on Leafs Notebook – February 23rd
bozak/lupul for a first. winnick/polack/reimer for a first.
6 days, 23 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Winnik with the Gordie
we have a lot of assets left right now. i would put all or part of lups, bozak, winnick, polack, reimer in packages for one or two first picks, giving us three or 4. then i would trade 2 of them + to edmonton for their second overall pick. at best, mccdavid. at worst, eichel.
@Cameron19 @Jay_Berg put lups in a package and don't settle for less than a first rounder.
@ Rythmnkings i love how kadri is playing this year, but i'd still say ultimately he's a line 2 center. it became evident during the west coast swing and he had to cover getzlaf, thorton and koptar. as hard as he tries, he's just not big enough.
man i'd love ryan o'reilly and dylan strome in our mix.
1 week ago on Sunday Mashup: Winnik with the Gordie
@rustynail terrible call. sit jvr.
1 week, 1 day ago on Game 59 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes 2 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@rustynail @ingy56 @.Kong. i would sit jvr tonight. kozun in his place. send everyone a message about needing to skate and battle. (but ultimately, still lose ;)
@rustynail he's on board with tank nation like a good captain. shanny told him to punch a brick wall. he did.
do this 5 times and you realize how hard it will be to get mcdavid without being in the bottom 2:
1 week, 1 day ago on GDT: Game #59, Toronto Maple Leafs at Carolina Hurricanes (7 p.m., SNO)
i know this has to happen and it's for the best, but fuck it hurts to watch.
@Hammertownleaffan polak couldn't even look at him when he did it.
where was kozun that period?
@TheColborneUltimatum @sharkbabysitter he's back deep enough to pick up the puck on broken plays, in the right place for the breakout. it's the barest of minimums, but it's more than he's done all year.
1 week, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #59, Toronto Maple Leafs at Carolina Hurricanes (7 p.m., SNO)
say what you will, kessel is making defence more of a priority than i've ever seen. not saying he's great at it, but he's trying.
anyone else hating craig button on leafs lunch? is he just there for the week? when's noodles coming back?
@Alec Brownscombe @.Kong. phaneuf/bozak for ROR
1 week, 2 days ago on McKenzie/Ferraro on: O’Reilly, Bozak, Polak & Leafs Coaching Candidates
@Cameron19 @B_Leaf a young guaranteed star, a first round pick, and a good player. minimum. but we won't get that. i thnk we're stuck with him, and ultimately that will be a good thing. nylander/strome/kessel
1 week, 4 days ago on GDT: Game #58, Florida Panthers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
@Cameron19 @B_Leaf thank you. stop trying to drive kessel out of town. put a true line one center with him, even if he's young and developing, and watch what happens. Kessel is the kane, not the toews. celebrate it, stop wanting something that's never gonna be there.
@Reether man, when we're excited to see jokinen, you know times are tough.
1 week, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #58, Florida Panthers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
carrick over holland? are they shopping him as part of a package? or is he just being rewarded for a hell of a last game?
@Sebastian James they're probably shopping carrick in a package. showing him off tonight.
@Xxxxxnew not off season, in season.
2 weeks ago on Leafs Trade Mike Santorelli & Cody Franson to the Nashville Predators
on a side note, i heard shanny doesn't live in toronto. where does he live? this bothers me.
@whalz @TheLoovTrain i think winnick and santorelli were because of dubas.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Game 55 Scoring Chances: Rangers 5 vs. Maple Leafs 4
@Cameron19 @sharkbabysitter that fills me with good cheer, sad to say. i hope they don't win another game. picks 1 & 2 are obv, but i like strome after that. bring him home.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Game 55 Scoring Chances: Rangers 5 vs. Maple Leafs 4
i know, but will we sustain? if confidence sweeps back into the room, it could ruin everything.
assuming the trades to our ufa's happen before the deadline (which i'm not convinced of) , how far do you think we will realistically tank this year? can we get to top 5 in the draft? higher? is it possible?
i have this eerie feeling that we're gonna go on a 10 + game rampage again at the end of the season and end up in the middle.
@zoidbergman @mtommy @Dan39 @TheLoovTrain @Burtonboy
5X5 would be fine with me. He could be one of the best 2nd line centers in the league.
maybe he's calling out the ufa's to make similar statements. Franson said he'd like to stay, but not so definitively.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Monday Mashup: Bad, but not Oiler-bad
does the emergency granberg call up mean someone's traded? please let it be phaneuf. more likely franson. most likely nothing.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Game 53 Scoring Chances: Devils 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
we're closer to mcdavid than babcock. what a month.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on GDT: Game #53, Toronto Maple Leafs at New Jersey Devils (7 p.m., SNO)
@Cameron19 finally, a voice of reason. I totally agree. They've played their best hockey of the year, and I can't believe how fast the media has been to roast them. especially the leafs lunch boys, who i love.
4 weeks ago on Game 51 Scoring Chances: Flyers 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@MaxwellHowe i don't have a problem with phaneuf's fighting or not fighting. i have a problem with the fact that he won't go first in the corner, take the hit and come out with the puck. i have a problem that he doesn't move his legs and coasts around with one hand on his stick like a sunday driver half the time. when something lights a fire under his ass and he tries really hard, he's awesome. it just doesn't happen enough.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Saturday Mashup: In Philly Tonight
i wish we would trade phaneuf before franson. also hurts to trade 2 of our best playing forwards this year. asset management is a topsy-turvy game.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Maple Leafs Rumours: Cody Franson, Mike Santorelli and Daniel Winnik “highly likely” to be traded (Bob McKenzie)
hope leo's head's ok
