1 day, 16 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bailey set to debut, Marlies within a point of playoffs, lottery date set
@Burtonboy Just sign a bunch of daniel Winniks in the summer and get rid of the core even Bernier (too pretty). They you sell the hard working Toronto Maple Leafs. Exactly like the Flames but we suck even more so we get a high draft pick.
3 days, 22 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@In it to Winnik How does one become a fan of the Browns and Ohio State?
1 week ago on Game 72 – SJS 4, TOR 1 – An even worse start for Toronto
Man it is amazing how much these guys wanted it. They looked so pumped to play. Sorry for bring this up again. They talk about the Game 7 collapse but not winning 3 or 4 was the dagger in the series.

@LoovTrain My brother brought up in interesting point about the leaf winning the lottery. You have the Canadian in McDavid leading the Leafs and the American Eichel leading the Sabre. They see eachother all the time and canada vs america.
The story writes itself. I can see the money coming in already.

That was the worst hockey I have ever seen. OMG TANK TANK TANK

2 weeks, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Greatest Tank Battles
@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe BB I feel that the Marlies have to many players that the go through. Is this what is needed for that kinda season or should we be giving more time to players?
I say this because when following the Marlies tweets the scratches almost take up the whole tweet.
@mcloki @Kessel81 I find it interesting that has flown under the radar so much or maybe I do not pay attention enough. Probably the later.
Looks like the Yotes are putting together that line in London lol.
If it hasnt been posted already.
@DIGGLER _69 @Kessel81 @phaneufoundlander @RandomScrub I have no sympathy for Arizona. They have stocked up quite a few talented prospects. They have OEL and will probably end up with a franchise centre in Eichel, Mcdavid or strome. They will be set and just have to grow them in the desert.

@phaneufoundlander @RandomScrub Quebec Takes ;)
@Radar O'Rielly @Ze_theLeafsFan My thought is if they take eichel and have nuge does that make Leon available for dmen?
@Ze_theLeafsFan Like how does this happen? Is this the same thing that happened with J Shultz?
@burroz That russian defender seems really good or one of the big centres.
@Mind Bomb @Kessel81 Seriously thanks guys. I have been inspired by the show the League and one of best friends is big Eagles fan and looking for more players.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Game 66 Scoring Chances: Blues 6 vs. Maple Leafs 1
Random Question: Is fantasy football easy to get into? Essentially, I assume I got to do a lot of reading on the internet.
@ProfessorRance It would be a very interesting mental game you could play with a second line of XXX - Kadri - Nylander. Go from these towering guys to a speedy, fiesty line.
If we all agree that next year is a rebuilding (tank) year then I would not be surprised if JB is moved out and replaced with Reimer. With the moves of the core (fill in whatever core pieces you want to move) we are going to be weak up front and defense, which is good for the draft. Then you get all those blue collar hard working guys like winnik and santo to join the team in free agency and you do what Calgary did, which is sell the idea we work hard and try every night. In Toronto, this will endear the fans and bring up some leadership story as well as everyone can suck up another year of this.
Also I think, Horachek is staying aboard. No big name coach wants to come here and revive Toronto in a rebuild. Leave him in charge (cannon fodder) and let the younger guys develop. Thoughts?
I was thinking if we fired Nonis, who do we bring in?
Could you imagine the first day?
Shannahan: "Well here is your desk! YOU BETTER GET GOOD VALUE FOR PHIL AND DION or..."

@mtommy If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying hard enough!
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Ron Wilson: “Leafs Rebuild will take 7 or 8 years”
Something to watch while you guys are bored.
@Burtonboy i hope the contract is insured.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Leafs Notebook – March 4
@DeclanK @Kessel81 @Burtonboy Perfect! Something to listen to at work tomorrow!
@Burtonboy @DeclanK It is sad how many we can name from this year.
@DeclanK Kessel is fat, Kess drags bozak down through his laziness, Dion/lups, Polak calling out the team in the czech newspaper, Gards/Dion/Kess is uncoachable, Siegal/Kessel incident, Lupul Injury and his favourites on twitter, Morgan being sexist.
I hope this is a good start.
@Yaknowwhat @Luke_R Honestly. Price is an animal and probably the best player in the NHL. A lot the Habs bloggers realize how much Price covers up their flaws.
Personally, I think they are a number 1 centre short of a very dominant franchise. Pk has turned into the number 1 dman for sure and Price is Price.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto
@Cloud09 With Connor McDavid as his centre!
@Yaknowwhat @MaxwellHowe @Jay31 I guess it is how many times do we have to hear Dion is at fault or Kessel does not score enough.
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
@mr_hanie More importantly, Gards and Rielly are playing better.
@colino17 @Kessel81 Lupul will be seen as the guy in TO if all the above mentioned guys get moved. If he gets hurt again it will be a bad situation for all.
Just spitballing but I see MLSE wanting a lupul move with the dead nathan horton cap on the books. Rather have bodies to play.
@TheLoovTrain @colino17 @Kessel81 Personally, I think the Left side of the defence is set going forward.
Rielly , gards, Percy (Percy and gards are interchangeable IMO)
Essentially, Percy gets the harder zone starts. I really hope he has a good off season and gets healthy.
@colino17 @Kessel81 I like Lupul a lot but I just do not see his value going up. I would rather he not turn into a salary dump down the road when we are contending. I love that guy when he is healthy.
@TheLoovTrain @Kessel81 You move anyone as long as the return is correct. However, I do think that Kessel is a draft move, especially if we win the lotto.
I think Dion is out the door. I think everyone needs a change of scenery.
Man Yak/PeterBleaf must had an aneurysm yesterday when none of the core moved haha.
The proper return for Phaneuf, Lupul and Bozak could really give this team flexiblity and a good foundation moving forward.
I would then split up Kessel and JVR which will hoepfully give JVR a kick in his ass to stop riding Kessel's coat tails and drive the play himself. Hopefully, find another Daniel Winnik or maybe a O'Rielly/ Mcdavid/strome/Anyone but Bozak options could provide us a great forward core moving forward.
One can dream haha.
@Potcy @Kessel81 Ask me Anything. essentially people ask various silly questions and Bob will answer the ones he wants.
There are some great ones out there.

AMA for Bobby Mac, if anyone is interested.
@Mind Bomb And then all the outdoors rinks closed!
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@Ze_theLeafsFan For free!
1 month 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.
@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 month ago on Friedman, Lebrun, Kypreos on Joffrey Lupul rumours
@Jmessih With the current state of the Ruble, he is extremely open to coming back.
@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.
