9 hours, 23 minutes ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@Ze_theLeafsFan For free!
1 day, 8 hours ago on Daniel Winnik Traded to Pittsburgh
@kxbarillas Don't we say this shit every year?
@Dan39 @Kessel81 I thought we can only have 3 retained salries. Please correct me if I am wrong.
With the salary retained this probably means no Lupul, Dion or Bozak being moved at the deadline.
1 day, 9 hours ago on Daniel Winnik Traded to Pittsburgh
@Dan39 @Kessel81 Well let it be known it is only cause I am at work :)
Does Nonis really have to hold a presser for this deal?
@traNsplantEdneWfie I think Hannifin is on a different timeline since he is so young. Would be an interesting scenario if you got to pick Ekblad and had MacK because they are more or less on the same time line.
1 day, 10 hours ago on Friedman, Lebrun, Kypreos on Joffrey Lupul rumours
@Jmessih With the current state of the Ruble, he is extremely open to coming back.
1 day, 15 hours ago on Friedman, Lebrun, Kypreos on Joffrey Lupul rumours
@Airfreshener @colino17 I would hope that they would make the corporate section the upper bowl and have the cheaper seat close to the ice. Then you get some sound engineer to make the building sound crazy.
I think today is the day we trade someone since it is the last day before the game. Also, going back to the ACC capacity discussion, I think Richard Peddie said if another Toronto team formed they should give that team the ACC and build a leafs super arena somewhere else. Obviously, we have no space.
@Anthony Petrielli @mr_hanie "as the youngest player on the team, Kane contributed six points in six games, helping Canada to a fifth straight gold medal with a 5–1 victory over Sweden in the final."
2 days, 11 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Calm Before the Storm?
@Burtonboy Didn't we just read a tweet that MTL is 1 scorer away from making a run.
2 days, 13 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Calm Before the Storm?
@udlbu @peterbleafs Other than the age, I think you can always acquire these physical players through free agency and drafting your own 3/4th liners.
The only thing is that we need to build a good team and they will come!
@Alec Brownscombe Rielly is wrong period but people act like they have never said anything along those lines or been a bystander to it.
6 days, 10 hours ago on McKenzie/Ferraro on: O’Reilly, Bozak, Polak & Leafs Coaching Candidates
Arguably, the Leafs could pick any of the top picks : Mcdavid, Eichel, Hannifin, Marner, Strome, etc...
Based off who we draft, how do you plan the next year would go? College, AHL, CHL?
I am pretty sure I would just all keep them away for a year.
6 days, 16 hours ago on McKenzie/Ferraro on: O’Reilly, Bozak, Polak & Leafs Coaching Candidates
My god I hope no one lost a finger going into work today. Everyone bundle up, there is no need to be a hero.
@TheLoovTrain @Cameron19 @Kessel81 The PPP article really outlined how we keep making the same mistake over and over again.
I just think the goal is to always optimize the CAP. Never know and people always have to think of a potential buyout of clarkson. Just never know what you need the space for.
The Vanek trade is a perfect example of not having the Cap Space and insult to injury he went to MTL. If we were primed for a run thats a huge blow.
1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Friedman on Polak, Kessel to Florida, and NTCs
@Cameron19 If we move Phaneuf, I think the main goal is to shed the whole 7 million. We just cannot have dead capspace. It starts to add up especially with gleason still on the books.
@udlbu He blamed a committee of people rather than just Carlyle. He said everyone shares a blame. The link to the interview is above.
@peterbleafs I hope he doesn't teach them how to skate.
1 week, 1 day ago on Game 58 Scoring Chances: Panthers 3 vs. Maple Leafs 2
Excellent read for people who have the time.
3 weeks ago on Wednesday Mashup: The Small Victories
@Jay31 It was to lock up Weber.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: The Small Victories
@Jay31 Scored a goal against Phx. Man, Kessel's conversion rate. That First line is just fucking pathetic.
@udlbu @Anthony Petrielli Tyler Biggs 4th line on the marlies to 3rd line on the Leafs. What an amazing story.
@FRyan Move bozak and sign santo to bridge until CMD or whatever centre we draft is ready.
@DeclanK It was him or Erik Karlsson for the Kings. Unreal that the pick was either a bust or a franchise dman beside doughty.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Monday Mashup: Goals? Never heard of ‘em
@TheColborneUltimatum @Mind Bomb The Boston Bloggers say he is overplayed a lot.
@Mind Bomb @FrycersGhost He will be label Dion 2.0 in no time!
@GibsonLPStudio Clog Neutral zone and it just looks bad for the Leafs.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Monday Mashup: Goals? Never heard of ‘em
@Yaknowwhat @Kessel81 I don't know what it will be but it could easily turn into a bozak kinda thing where we should of moved him we he was a faceoof expert and putting up unsustainable points.
Unless Franson has a major friendship with morgan or helping morgan along I would move him for a low first/ high second.
Got to wait and see.
@Yaknowwhat @Kessel81 I would rather sign guys like Winnik to contracts and cash in big on Franny. Always sign vets in the free agency.
@Yaknowwhat I don't want franson signed not because I don't like him but everyone now is on Rielly's timeline. Acquire players that will peek around Morgan's prime. Nazem should be on the tail end gardiner should be slowing down, Nylander should be in his prime. Lots of stuff to work with if we shed contracts. Much easier said than done unfortunately.
@MaxwellHowe The tweet of the night was, "If JVR should be given the Hart if he prevents this game from going into OT" it was by some reporter i think.
4 weeks ago on Game 49 Scoring Chances: Devils 2 vs. Maple Leafs 1 (SO)
@Radar O'Rielly @TorontoMapleLeafs He falls over every shift!
You see what Lupul does at 5 mill and look at what clarkson does. If only Lups stayed health.
@Radar O'Rielly @Kessel81 @TorontoMapleLeafs He plays on the power play where there was more than ample opportunity to do that. He has over an hour of pp time.
Also, he has been put with skill guys like Kadri, Lupul, JVR, Bozak (lol) to help him spark him offensively. Given the grinder minutes with Santo and Winnik.
@Radar O'Rielly @TorontoMapleLeafs He is given every opportunity to succeed.
@Yaknowwhat In all seriousness, I think we should draft D Strome. We need centres!
@TorontoMapleLeafs @Yaknowwhat @WB_222 Rielly and then move kess for Seth Jones! Percy Gards and fill in the rest with whatever comes around.
@TorontoMapleLeafs @WB_222 @Yaknowwhat
I hope we see somehow.
Rome (I can't think of another one).
@sniperstar @Kessel81 I am just worried about Lawson Crouse. People are all over the place about him like any prospect. I think we really need to Phil (i see what i did there) the huge gapping crator that is our Centre position.
Also you can always move a centre to the wing position.
@mcloki @Kessel81 What pissed me off about last nights game was that they can fucking lose right. Man we should of won after JVR potted that breakaway! I was cheering for the win but man can we either win/lose in regulation!
Mucho negative today lol!
@MaxwellHowe @Kessel81 I 100% agree. We need to build around him and Naz. Potentially move nylander to the wing. Holland at 3 C is really nice.
@mcloki I have never been less excited to go to a leafs game than a b2b against the coyotes. Holy fuck.
Do you guys think that we go for the best centre available where we are? In my opinion, we need to either get Hanifin (if he sneaks by edm) or a centre prospect.
Or do we still go best player available?
@Bring the Cup Home @Forever17 Depends on the Team. If the Ducks that is a very high first round pick.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: Back At It vs. Devils
@gjdevlin @Kessel81 @Anthony Petrielli Not saying he doesn't deserve to go but I would be very scared to have a complete front office with no NHl level of experience.
@gjdevlin @Anthony Petrielli You need someone with NHL head office experience so that could be nonis role until summer where you can go after someone like Rob Blake (the assistant?) in LA.
@Yaknowwhat @Anthony Petrielli @Mind Bomb SOmebody has to win it Yak. Might as well get something rather than nothing.
