I liked what Dineen said about his expectations of Nylander and I was happy to hear that his arrival and all the hoopla around it does not create any distraction in the dressing room, on the contrary. Glad that Dineen and Marlies are handling this very well.
2 days, 1 hour ago on Friday Mashup: Nylander set for Marlies debut tonight in Hamilton
I believe those who would be interested in being Leafs GM are already carefully watching/assesing the Leafs.

Sad part is that trade value of most of our players sank dramatically over last month or so
4 days, 19 hours ago on Game 47 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
if the Leafs cant beat Carolina, they are in deep shit
5 days, 12 hours ago on GDT: Game #47, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Carolina Hurricanes (7:30pm, TSN4)
@ConnorCrisp LOL: 24 attempts and got Leafs drafting first

@Burtonboy with oil prices that low, there is not much hope Canadian dollar narrows the gap anytime soon
1 week, 5 days ago on William Nylander is coming to Toronto
@Yaknowwhat Swedish players are very safe bet in any draft, most of them make it to the NHL and many of them play long, long careers.
Time to rename Marlies to Toronto Swedes, if for nothing else to upset Cherry :)
@Forever17 @Yan28 it took him many years to accept Lidstrom
As I mentioned yesterday, hopefully Marlies make the post season, it is vital for kids development to play as many playoff games as possible.
It seems to me that the Leafs had an agreement with MODO on how Nylander will be used / developed and since the firings in MODO and overal mess in the organization, the Leafs called Willie back and let him develop with Marlies which accidentaly start playing decent hockey.
1 week, 5 days ago on Sunday Mashup: On the road again
@newkb @Savo43 Krejci would be enough
1 week, 6 days ago on Sunday Mashup: On the road again
Bibeau with 4 SO, 2.53 GAA, .916 SV% in 15 games so far this season
@newkb @ingy56 he scored two epty netters today
Happy to see Marlies clawing back into playoffs postion.
Bibeau with another shotout
@Mcost61 @drummond usually no, only self imposed limits on spending
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Thursday Mashup: No miracle fix in Horachek’s first game
in certain soccer teams in Europe players must take lots of crap too
@Burtonboy there is hope
Kessel scores hattrick tomorrow and goes on tear for the whole January and we all thank Feschuk :) :) :)
2 weeks, 4 days ago on The Randy Carlyle era is over
@Mcost61 should be packing as they are on the move soon too
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Randy Carlyle Fired
Randy was and is a good coach but was too stubborn when it came to playing four lines on a regular basis and being far too loyal to certain players and not playing the young kids. Having said that, the core group are even more responsible for his firing.Now Shanny will find out for sure what these players are made of and make changes accordingly eigther at the trade dedline or offseason after they miss the playoffs again.
Congrats to Team Canada, kudos to Team Russia. Fascinating game from both sides, Canada´s domination in the second period was unbelievable as well as the ability to shut down late in the third. True final, best game of the tournament, very much worth of staying awake the whole night.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Golden
@deedrag He is having great rookie season in Sarnia, he was very eager to come over to play in NA, which caused him some troubles with national team management. Still he is considered one of the most talented Czechs under 20, he already played against men.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Game 40 Scoring Chances: Jets 5 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@leafsjon Why would anyone even consider acquiring Clarskon and his albatros contract if you can get his production for free (see Panik)
2 weeks, 6 days ago on GDT: Game #40, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Winnipeg Jets (7 p.m., HNIC)
talking about possesion, Nyquist controlled the puck for 28 sec in offensive zone all by himself (and scored). He completed three laps. WOW
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Game Review: Game #37, Tampa Bay Lightning 3 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 2
@Xxxxxnew he was relatively young, much more seasoned / experienced coach now
@Burtonboy @Alec Brownscombe which makes the transition game extremely difficult
I partially agree with Randy that shots total is not indicative enough and what matters is the quality of chances allowed/against. You may have 40 shots against but if they are inferior, low quality, from along the boards, without any screens etc. you may very well asume your goalie would be able to stop all of them. As I said, this makes sense and if Randy was able to make his team play that way, I would not say a word. Problem is that the Leafs are not only allowing 40+ shots against way too often (which theoreticaly would not be a problem if above mentioned style of play worked / was executed) but they are allowing quite a lot great scoring chances.
game tied for Willie to score game winner
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Happy Boxing Day
I do not mind Jake, however the Leafs have too many soft, offensive minded D-men and lack those hard nosed stay at home types able to play structured defense.

Merry Christmas from Prague, Czech Rep. Just finished dinner and unpacked all the gifts, all members of the family around the table chatting and having good time. Soon leaving for midnight mass.

1 month ago on GDT: Game #35, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Dallas Stars (7 p.m., SNO)
11 seasons is truly impressive
I like Bozak, he brings some highly sought skill to the table such as ability to win face offs, shootout magic, good penalty kill etc., would be great to keep him on 2nd or 3rd line. As long as games are decided by shootouts, guy like Bozak can get you lots of extremely valuable points.

@Czarofleafnation @wendelsfist honestly if the Leafs finish with 100 pts or more he will be contender for Jack Adams Trophy
@mr_hanie I am not so sure, it is all about character, young Sabres are willing to follow the sript, Oilers apparenntly arent.

and Bibeau with Shutout, what a day in Leafland
@JWaterdrager @drummond @goodonerandy it was a joke
@Burtonboy Leafs always play better against good oponents and suck against Carolinas of the League
@goodonerandy extend Carlyle
I am truly impressed with the Leafs record in second games of B2B this year
Reimer is a fighter
@Bruce Gamble rebounds do not matter
bozak - Lups - Santo
