@Komas Taberle @traNsplantEdneWfie  besides it would be as a pharmaceutical co-ordinator and occupational director. You know making sure the right chemicals are in inhalers and assigned to the right players

@hometeem @Hifi75  I thought as long as he was employed it costs a 2nd in season and a 3rd after. Both the Sharks  and McLellan agreed to part ways

Just curious about the direction Shanny going to take. I don't believe Babcock coming here and being a more larger personality than Shanny.

@traNsplantEdneWfie  Funny...but an honest question none the less. IMO Shanny is going to go a unconventional route in getting his coach and operations manager (G.M)

Any thoughts on John Stevens L.A and what about Dale Hawerchuk as a Asst Coach

@djamon @Hifi75  IMO you'd be foolish not to look at all the angles. If Shanny was willing to trade and the return was good why wouldn't Murray listen. It was a good way for Murray to say the want him but also show they are open for business

Reply

@Jmessih @djamon @Hifi75  Well we will see I guess. Makes senses but for them to pick Eichel but could be a asset if they are willing to move a spot or two down. Also I do get the feeling Murray isn't sold on him

Anybody else get the feeling that Buffalo may pick some else other than Eichel ? I just have that feeling after the comments by Murray last night. Like Strome

IMO you will see a Sean Burke as GM and Dale Hunter if we don't win the McDavid sweepstakes. If we did I can see the pressure to take short cuts again while bringing in a high profile name.

I find it sad that the owners of TSN and SN. own the Leafs and allow this poor culture to continue.


I have my opinions and I do think the core needs to change in TO. it isn't working but has nothing to do with them.

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto

1. Very well written article, both engaging and informative. Great Job


2.  I believe the environment as a whole in TO  to be toxic in sports. Whether it's the Jays, Leafs or any other pro team we poison the waters as fans, media outlets, owners and players. Everyone is accountable in their role.


3.  I as a fan would like to extend an apology to all the pro athletes for crossing boundaries that go beyond sports (though I haven't really said anything I believe an olive branch needs to be offered). I have an expectation of you as a player, as a owner, and as a professional journalist. Their should be an expectation as fans too.


I hope this crap goes away and a rally amongst all pro teams, fans and media happens. As the Raps say" we are the North" and our over all identity in sports should be solidarity amongst it's players, management, fans and media. The highschool  culture of sports needs to change in  Toronto and a command of respect taken

I agree the leafs have learned since Schenn but they are way behind the curve in developing. If not than why the hirings of Dubas and Hunter. IMO the leafs lack an identity of a style of play through out the organization. I do believe however that they have identified they need one. Look at the type of players they seem to be targeting, either high end skill or gritty in your face types. The big power plotting types are no longer what Shanny and co. Are after. Phil fits the skill level that they want but they have already damaged his willingness to compete

I think going in to the draft the Leafs management should be looking at getting young talent (ie: prospects and players below 25) for their pieces. I would also expect a few bad contracts our way too.

How would Lupul look with the Sedins, who play a good cycle game and strong on the puck?

Would McCann and a 2nd (if some cash was kept ) be fair?
