What a shitty way to end the season. I had some pretty high hopes for this year... hopefully No-No gets his head out of his ass and makes some good moves. Not necessarily feasible but heres what id like to see.
A new Coach! Gunnar-Gone, Gleason-Gone, Franson-Gone
Dion - A legit #2 shutdown Dman please!
Gardiner - A capable stay at home guy (gunnar 2.0)
(one of the marlies)
1st line stays the same for better or worse
Lupul-Kadri-Clarkson(he gets 20 games next year before i write him off)
I like kadri and i dont like trading young players with his skill but if he landed us kesler id make that deal.
Lupul-Kesler-clarkson could be a dominant 2nd line on just about any team in the league (assuming clarkson becomes himself again).
It would be nice to upgrade bozak but i just dont see it happening.
anyways time to dust off the clubs!
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Morning Mashup: Leafs All But Out Of Playoff Picture
The amount of shit Dion takes is insane... heres a scenario
A defenceman plays 24 minutes a night. Starts 2 out of every 3 shifts in the defensive zone against the very best players in the league. (top in the league in REL QoC last two seasons) He leads his team in PK time. This defenceman is a +5. His team is 28th in goals against. And he chips in aprox 35 points.....that team should definitely trade him, said nobody who knows anything about the game.

@Jon5200 @mbails jerry-mcclement-bodie as a 4th line wouldn't be terrible.

@Jon5200 @mbails yup. is he killing penalties with the marlies? i think he's got potential there to be PK2 guy. no reason he can't put 8-10 minutes a game in next season. Hopefully this season is extra motivation for him to train even harder to make the next step and be a full time NHLer
just finished The Leaf episode 6. Gotta love a guy like D'amigo. Hope he finds a role on this team next season.
WTF did i just watch lol

think i could get used to sunday afternoon games. shinny at the local rink followed by caesars and a the leafs with a confident win over the caps sounds great! any meaningful updates on bernier and bolland?

@Loric76 @mbails in good ol sask. not to bad here :)
heard the winter was pretty shitty there though!
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #66, Leafs 3 at Ducks 1
finally back in canada just in time for the snow to start melting and a strong finish to the regular season by the leafs. good to be home. can't wait to get skates on!
@Burtonboy @mbails maybe i have some bias having watched him play in van many times over a 4 year span while i lived there. he's a kind of player who can pick an entire team up. not going to happen anyways though.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on NHL Trade Deadline Day: Is there anything doing in Leafland?
@Burtonboy @mbails i definitely get what your saying. but kesler is a horse, lots of playoff experience, solid production through his career and still has enough in the tank to be part f a rebuild... not a huge fan of trading prospects and picks for vets but i think kesler would be a solid addition and worth it. but not for both kadri and gardiner
@Burtonboy @mbails thats steep. theres quite a bit id give for kesler including one of kadri or gardiner (not rielly) with 2 prospects and a 2nd (which i dont think we have)...one can dream i guess
what would the price tag for kesler be?
@Belfour20 he leads the the tournament in points is my guess

5 months, 3 weeks ago on Shark Club Game Day: Vancouver Canucks at Maple Leafs (6 p.m., CBC)
4-2 leafs. Lets go boys!
@BBirde @mbails haha thats awesome! if you guys wanna see how bad it is there for LGBT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ_aSl3ktjg
@BBirde @mbails no I'm on a small island with shit wifi. missed the opening. what did they do?
@mike_84 it is a fake article
@Bruffins because we lose every game?
is Don secretly showing his support for the LGTB with that suit??
@Jmessih what is our lineup tonight?
@TheCanucksnaphook @mbails well that doesn't surprise me (but can't last forever)... no call up available? cap reasons maybe?
@TheCanucksnaphook @mbails kuli was playing to well on his off wing so RC puts him at centre?
haven't had a wifi connection for a couple days... what happened to our lineup?
123kph with ZERO windup. AND pin point accurate! unreal!
5 months, 4 weeks ago on Shark Club Game Day: Senators at Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
I've said it a couple times. as far as that specific shot type goes. its the best the nhl has ever seen!
@MaxwellHowe purposeful touch
@MaxwellHowe no just a touch
@Cameron19 i dunno his numbers were to kadri the entire time.
thats a penalty sorry to say
OMG rielly didn't hold the line trade him!!!!
what a fucking pass!!!!
this shitting on jake is ridiculous imo. Young offensively gifted Dmen tend to make mistakes, and sometimes in bunches. Anyone not excited to have him as part of the leafs future needs to give their head a shake. both him and rielly make their respective olympic teams in 4 years. both are going to put up elite numbers. and yes mistakes will be made along the way. thats the way it goes with young Dmen.
@Alec Brownscombe 4-3 leafs Lups, Naz, Dion, JVR
losing ashton and holland might prove to be a bigger loss then one would think. nothing against mcclaren but him+orr equals a pointless 4th line. hopefully mckegg can play his best hockey and keep whats been a decent 3rd line going!
Big game boys!!
@CanuckUKinToronto @mbails i definitely agree all teams are stacked. but with canada more than offence is the defensive responsibility our forwards have as well. I think that is going to set us apart. Being able to score is great, but have 4 lines who are more than capable of keeping the puck out of our net is huge. The only team i cheer harder for than the leafs is team canada. i brought a hockey canada cape with me to bali so i can cheer our boys on in style!!
5 months, 4 weeks ago on Maple Leafs recall Greg McKegg
little off topic but going through the USA depth chart to see how they stack up against canada and they have some serious talent. JVR-Pavelski-Kessel could put up serious numbers in a somewhat "sheltered role" (if there is such a thing at the olympics.
Ladies and Gentlemen......MR....PHIL PHUCKING KESSEL!!!!!!!!!!!

@mike_84 @mbails @Savo43 true
@Gilbey93 mind set was the main point i was trying to make there.
@Savo43 @mbails ashton has 3rd line "scorer" if that makes sense, written all over him imo
