@B_Leaf  I agree a number one Center is needed. But I also think they're mantra is not changing their work horses mid stream. Again when you look at he overall picture of what they have done, to me the question is 1. Do they think they need another top 6 winger or 2. Are they done tinkering with their D

@Cameron19 @Hifi75 @Walter_White @-Keon  Your right that one went very public....but their was past rumbles of both players being moved too. More of a gut feeling but if one is moved I hope it is Franson


I would also point out that I no longer think Riemer is moved, atleast for now. Not after the remarks made yesterday

@Walter_White @-Keon  I get a feeling that Franson isn't the target player looking to be moved. Rather a fall back if they can't move the one they want to. I am not sure who it is between Gards and Ph9

@Bobsyouruncle @hoolihan  I think the biggest issue that I see that seems to be addressed is communication and direction. When your players are getting mixed messages for their coaches, management seems to be afraid to be proactive and always being defensive. Your top players burnt out, missed assignments on the ice on a regular basis and your bottom 6 a OHL bottom 6. You have problems.


Nonis should feel supported to make logical timely moves, much like he did in Vancouver. I don't believe he felt secure in that here as of yet, he will have the rope...if only to hang himself. The crux of all the pressure now is on Carlyle, if this team now underwhelms, he will not only be fired but I would think his image as a good X and O's coach would be tarnished

@Komas Taberle  Very well written Anthony, and bang on about the succession planning going on. Love how Shanny infused pressure on Nonis and RC along with the core. Basically produce or else

To many players of the same mold. Kane is a strange rumour too, although he is a decent skater and a pain in the ass player

@Ze_theLeafsFan  I don't know Anthony but seems to me the Leafs now have a glut of the same player types for roles as fringe 2nd liners and more prototypical 3rd liners

@LeafsGuru @Hifi75 @Greg Fenton @Cloud09  All I was saying he to me no longer fits the mold of the team they are trying to build. A good player yes, average skater, and will go to the boards but not an agitator as seems to be the signings. Also his Fenwick is lesser than the other signings

@Greg Fenton @Hifi75 @Cloud09  Lupul is a poor skater and Clarkson although not great either. Has a history of being a pest, who cycles and aggressive on the forecheck.


Kessel is quick as I noted in the type of players

@LeafsGuru @Hifi75 @Cloud09  I see what your saying I just feel that management is moving more towards quick, cycling, forechecking players. Lupul is not quick nor a cycling player. Something I thing both Kadri and Bozak would benefit with

@Cloud09  Can someone explain to me where Lupul fits on the team now? With Leo, Booth, Clarkson I believe they replace him overall and more aggressive on the forecheck. If Bozak is moved to 2C then Booth and Clarkson would look good with him

Addressing rumours that surfaced following the season that had him requesting a trade, the netminder said events over the off-season along with the hiring of Brendan Shanahan gave him confidence that the organization was heading in the right direction.

“That's not the case now, that's for sure…At the end of the year, I thought the opportunity was over, that the door was closed,” Reimer said. “But over the summer, it became clear that this is definitely the place that I want to be.”



From this statement Reimer must know that a transition from RC must be in the works.

@The_Polish_Cannon @BlueSmoke  I would love to have Bogo play with Dion. Would rather him right now over Kane. If we could get both I would be happy but I think you would need to convince Lupul to waive and a larger offering with Franson and Riemer  included would need to be included


Dion -  Bogosian

Gardnier - Robidas

Reilly - Polak
