@Mc dlb @Jay31 We need a group that can play defence.
20 hours, 22 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Ken Hitchcock Watch, Toronto Marlies take 2-0 lead
@ProfessorRance What is a dip in? Sorry if this a bad question.
21 hours, 46 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Ken Hitchcock Watch, Toronto Marlies take 2-0 lead
@LoovTrain @RememberSalming @Kessel81 @ingy56 100% agree. JVR/ Kessel should be getting you 5 - 10 in this draft for sure. I would love to add Strome/ Hannifin. Maybe even Marner falls to a 6,7 spot and you have to get him.
1 day, 1 hour ago on Toronto Marlies Open Thread: Marlies score touchdown in Game 1 win; Game 2 goes Sunday
@RememberSalming @LoovTrain @Kessel81 @ingy56 You start to wonder what teams are in true rebuild mode. Someone like San Jose is going to draft a great player and never be seen in the teen draft picks again. Someone like Dallas, needs players for the Benn and Seguin timeline. Washington should be primed to make some moves based on there new found success. I think there will be lots of gambles with potentially the "overvalued" draft picks.
@RememberSalming @Kessel81 @LoovTrain @ingy56 If we want the full extent of Hunter and Dubas' mining we need lots of picks... duh. I think it is more realistic to have trades for picks in that range.
@LoovTrain @RememberSalming @ingy56 @Kessel81 Personally, if we come away with one pick in every ten picks, it should be a success. Need a 11 - 20 pick and a 31 - 40 pick. Anymore is icing on the cake in my mind.
@RememberSalming @Kessel81 I am sure the structure of Detriot could easily get them past in 5. Tampa concerns me more but this is just a gut feeling. A good example would be, X goalie is not a playoff goalie then he wins a cup lmao.
Morning Boys and Girls! i hope everyone had a good weekend. Makes me sick the Habs went through but good for the Marlies taking their homes games. Hopefully, we can steal one in GR.
@Joe_17 @Yaknowwhat @MaxwellHowe Hey Joe it is like scene in Moneyball were the scout says "he has an ugly girlfriend and it mean he has no confidence". I bet teams look at this as he is a hardworking guy who can adapt to any environment.

@Burtonboy I think anyone would say that however, high risk high reward.
3 days, 18 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Overhaul in Edmonton, Sharks talking to Carlyle
@Burtonboy Could be interesting that they could trade the current players (Hall, Nuge, RHN, etc..) and get great younger returns and start the whole rebuild on the CMD, Nurse, Draistal time line.
3 days, 19 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Overhaul in Edmonton, Sharks talking to Carlyle
@Mc dlb @Kessel81 To be honest, this is a playoff AHL squad.
@Burtonboy C'mon on Nuge and T Hall.
@dlbu dlbu E We are going for Relegation right?
@totalrebuild I have thought about this for a while and feel we can break down the Leafs Political spectrum like this.On the Left we have the analytics folks (PPP), in the middle we have a mix of intangibles and analytics (MLHS, Leafsnation) and then you have the right which is, if he ain't Dougie or Wendel he isn't worth my time (Leafshub).
5 days, 1 hour ago on Thursday Mashup: Jets the First to Fall
@MaxwellHowe The hard part is maintaining the website every day. Every transaction performed has an implications and the data most likely has to be entered manually.
@Jon5200 @Kessel81 Just teasing bud
@Jon5200 Just out of curiosity, do you have to replace your period key every year? :)
@MLHS_Luke @B_Leaf @Kessel81It is very hard to acquire centres and draft and developing your own seems to be the easiest method.
@MLHS_Luke @Mind Bomb I consider Ottawa to equal 0 so e^26 is just there for the fun ;)
@B_Leaf Need a goalie and some defensive pieces and they should be able to turn it around in 2 to 3 years.
Same with AZ lots of prospects they just have to grow in the desert.
Peter Ciarelli is in Edmonton to meet with the Oiler. Cmon trade connor!
5 days, 20 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Todd McLellan in play
@Mind Bomb @Kessel81 I never got to wear my colby armstrong jersey to a game he played in :/
6 days, 1 hour ago on Tuesday Mashup: Todd McLellan in play
@traNsplantEdneWfie @Kessel81 As Homer Simpson said once, "It's still good!".
@TorontoMapleLeafs @Kessel81 You already won lmao.
Okay different topic for once. What is your worst jersey purchase? I got Colby Armstrong but I got it autographed.
@TorontoMapleLeafs I am telling you, we are going to sell are "pretty boys" and sell blue collar hard work so we can make it through another rebuilding season!
Bye bernie, Lups (RIP Lupul Jersey), Bozie, etcc..
@traNsplantEdneWfie @Kessel81 @mcloki I knew I liked you!
1 week ago on Toronto Maple Leafs’ Kyle Dubas on Brady & Walker
@mcloki Do you guys really want to see other Canadian teams succeed because in my mind, I would much rather see the Leafs as the only successful Canadian team. We need to be the team that brings it home!
@Luke_R @Burtonboy @Kessel81 @ConnorCrisp If he plays any meaningful minutes in the NHL it is a successful 7th round pick. Let him slow cook as long as he needs.
1 week, 1 day ago on Leafs Notebook Season Finale – April 20
@ConnorCrisp Apparently he put up 21 points as well. Not a bad start to his AHL career.
Hey AP, I just want to say thank you for keeping me sane for the entirety of this dismal season. Great work as always and I look forward to your fresh perspective during the "Shananplan" next season.
Why does JVR get such a free pass? At least Kessel can create offence on his own most nights and I would argue Kessel is better defensively? Shouldn't JVR be a leader since he has been to the cup finals?
1 week, 4 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs: Round 1 – Opening Night
@Cameron19 Doesn't have a heart condition that's for sure!
1 week, 5 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: The Shanaplan
@deedrag @Kessel81 I do not want Lucic. Stay away, far away.
@deedrag Stop it! Stahp!
@zoidbergman @Kessel81 @Bruffins I have no doubt in a year or two, he is the "captain" of the defensive core.
@Bruffins Make the number 1 centre captain. Rielly will never be able to live up to those expectations. Score, fight, hit and play 30 minutes of shut down defense.
@Jmessih @Radar O'Rielly @Burtonboy Word is three of the fittest Leafs during pre-camp testing were Cody Donaghy, Connor Brown and Phil Kessel.
as per Cox
2 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: Sorting Through the Rubble
@traNsplantEdneWfie Do you think if Clarkson was still on the team, you would have the same opinion? I say this because at least Ph9 is serviceable and can play in a top 4 role at worst. Clarkson could barely play 3rd line minutes most nights.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Monday Mashup: Sorting Through the Rubble
Say all these firings and Shanaplan works and create a cup winning Leafs team, it will be the sickest movie ever!
Jonah Hill as Dave Nonis!
The core is being moved. Period. BS is starting this right from scratch. No way we are starting a season with Kessel, Ph9, Lupul and Bozak.
Now I need to start thinking about a new Leafs Jersey :(
@Burtonboy Is this not just the same article everyone has written with the fun fact that it was Dion's birthday yesterday?
2 weeks, 4 days ago on 2015 NHL Draft Rankings: Maple Leafs to draft fourth overall, pending lottery
@ProfessorRance @Kessel81 @mcloki As long as MTL or the Sens win, I could care less to be honest. I just like Toews way to not cheer for the hawks (in the playoffs).
@Cameron19 @traNsplantEdneWfie @WereRiellyDoingThis @phaneufoundlander Someone needs to play RW beside Nylander and Kadri :)
@mcloki I feel empty now because we accomplished the 4th overall pick and now we have to watch other teams play playoff games.
Dream: MCD (Jersey the second he confirms his number), MTL eliminated, Ottawa Eliminated, Nashville Eliminated, Hawks win cup so we can say we have seen a dynasty.
@traNsplantEdneWfie It takes one new shiny toy and the season is saved by our standards.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Game 81 Scoring Chances: Blue Jackets 5 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@Yan28 You know everyone would hate him here.
@Jon5200 @Kessel81 @Leafbites I can only really relate to hockey in more recent times but from what I see is that say someone runs kessel. Unless that someone is on the fourth line, Orr would rarely match up with him during the game unless the coach felt the need for it.
