@Xxxxxnew true, really depends on the return(s)
1 week, 3 days ago on Game 46 Scoring Chances: Blues 3 vs. Maple Leafs 0
@Xxxxxnew See I do believe this team with creative moves can replace the core and get younger. With the newer found defense I think they could compete next year too
@elandan @Hifi75 I'd do it.
But I think he is apart to fixing the problem. MacKinnon for the Avs is even more untouchable
LOL Eklund is now sayin Morgan Reilly is untouchable. Well I don't think anyone really is. To give him up I would want a franchise player coming back like MacKinnon.
Well whatever the do it won't be with Nonis at the Helm.
@kel21 @Hifi75 The Sedins with Phil would be lights out
@kel21 @Hifi75 I may add the team I could see best fit and may bite is Van for Kessel. If they would like to make it a larger deal I would be for it
@Cameron19 @Hifi75 The problem with trading him is where and for what kind of return. A lot of teams don't really need a player like Phil. Maybe Nashville
@Yaknowwhat I agree
Who or what kind of package would most be content with if Dion, Kessel, Gards and Lupul were traded?
For example 3 teams I could not only see Kessel with, but interested in him and have what I would be happy with:
NYI: A package around Reinhart and Strome (No first this year so I want both and maybe a mid range spec)
VAN: Virtanen, Kassian and a 1st
Philly: Couturier, Vinny, Simmonds and this years 1st and 2nd. For Phill and Gards
@Fish Head @sniperstar Staal is viewed as a number 1 still but I see the fall coming like what happened to Richards
2 months ago on GDT: Game #22, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Pittsburgh Penguins (7:30, SN)
@sniperstar I don't but a very good 2
I think the problem with the Leafs is their top 6 isn't a compliment to their bottom 6. I would like to see another top 6 pain in the arse type. Another Leo but more skill if you will is ROR that type?
@Fish Head @Hifi75 @4thcolapse @Coldincowtown Very good points Fish Head. If we were to go with ROR then Bozak would have to go
2 months, 1 week ago on An Advanced Stats Look at Leaf Players through 18 games
@Fish Head @Hifi75 @4thcolapse @Coldincowtown See to me ROR is not a 1C but a more responsible Kadri type. As for the Avs I could see them wanting a anchor to play with Johnson when he is back and some potential in a 1st, Biggs offers 3rd line grit and Bozak is the fringe 2/3C
Duchene would be hard to pry from them for sure, but It allows two good horses up the middle and a strong pairing on D. They could ask for something different than Bozak like Kadri or JVR which to be honest would make it harder to swallow....but I would do it as long as we got picks this year like a 2nd and 4th
@4thcolapse @Coldincowtown A franchise changing move would be the coveted 1C we need. Sorry but I don't se ROR as that for us and the AVS potentially have 2. I would love to see Phil play along aside Duchene (no way they give up Mackinion). Problem is how do we much up in trade?
I would try and see if they would bite with Dion,Bozak,Biggs and a first in 2016
Duchene and Stuart
Well not much in terms of consistency last night. Unless the return of the key stone cops routine is their level of consistency
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #12, Arizona Coyotes 3 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 2
Wish I could see the game. Out with the misses doing some late night shopping. Using my phone to check updates
2 months, 3 weeks ago on GDT: Game #12, Toronto Maple Leafs at Arizona Coyotes (9 p.m., SNO)
Good maybe a little head game for the yotes not mention us
Yet KAdri wasn't producing until matched with Phil
Yeah not sure of the logic on this one
I hope this reunited line isn't because of the comments made about Kessel by JVR
Ummm don't fix what ain't broke Randy
Oh and I have a gut feeling the 2nd line will be huge for us tonight. JVR with a big game
Again, I am looking for the consistency of play. I am eating a bit of humble pie and stating that their has been solid play the last 3 games. I want to see more of that, before I say they have turned the corner. Dare I say it, they do seem to be carving out a team identity latley with a higher compete factor Go Leafs Go. Leo and Clarkson and Polak have been difference makers so far
@peterbleafs Problem with that is Kozun and Lupul are hurt for awhile. Carrick called up today and Percy sent down.
Winnik Kadri Kessel
JVR Santorelli Clarkson
Holland Bozak Komarov
Ashton Carrick Frattin
those are the lines I would like to see tonight, allow Holland to play wing with Bozak and see what happens
2 months, 4 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #10, Toronto Maple Leafs 4, Columbus Blue Jackets 1
Nope but gonna have half dozen kids in the house later for a sleepover. The joys of kids
2 months, 4 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: Percy recalled, Game Day in Columbus
I'd like to see of our leafs play like hounds on the puck. Hit like beasts along the boards. And quickly fetch the puck and get out in the defensive Zone
I am going out on a limb but I think Kadri will have a big game
3 months ago on Thursday Mashup: Leafs face banged-up Blue Jackets tomorrow
It is sad when the motto is lose and they will come
I am hoping they prove me wrong and play consistent to win. If they cycle a lot and JVR, Clarkson, Lups and Leo crash the net more they should win, big if but 4-2 Leafs.
If not then could be a big loss
I must of missed that. I would go with Bernier myself because of the speed CBJ and Riemer for Chi
3 months ago on Game Review: Game #9, Toronto Maple Leafs 4 vs. Buffalo Sabres 0
So will Reimer or Bernier be in next against CBJ
Or the way he has been treated. Boy must have one hell of a sports psychologist
From what I said below we get the most value from those two. Each can change a slight complexion of the game. Our issue is where to the rest of the team stack up in terms of equal value
Reimer is a battlier type kinda in the hasak and cujo mould. Where as Bernier is more the Moog and Belfour style.
I expect a strong calming positional game from Bernier.
I expect a emotional high energy game from Riemer that can pump up your team
Where would the team be now without the early season play of the 3rd line
I think the value we get from Reimer and Bernier is great. The problem is the amount of various pressure put on them. In other words I don't believe any other goalie could di much more than they do. Price may win a game or two more but will not change how the team plays in front him
Don't know why but his skill set reminds me of kaberle but plays like he is scared
I agree, he plays so timid
I give Polak alot of the credit to that and maybe Horachek
No matter if they did when last night. My concern is still with players who have Come out saying the same thing as last year and the year before, we have to be better and the compete level needs to go up. Pure poison to a locker room on morale
I need to see consistent effort for a dozen games before that opinion changes
@BoneChompski @Hifi75 @ProfessorRance yup a $ 50 hotdog and $ 75 beer sounds like Rogers marketing lol
3 months ago on GDT: Game #9, Buffalo Sabres at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN 4)
@BoneChompski @ProfessorRance And give up your shirt...err.jersey
@TheLoovTrain @BoneChompski @MaxwellHowe At best he could be a Kaberle at worse Aki Berg
@docmma @B_Leaf @T K O sad thing is whats it say about the Leafs when they cant score against them
@TheLoovTrain @Hifi75 @T K O @docmma Lol good point
@T K O @docmma even if they win the game it will not change the optics of the culture. This team needs to go on a roll where they win 15 out of 20
@Mitch92 @Hifi75 @Leafs_17 I am not a fan of his...but I believe also they put him in a position to fail as captain....I would do that trade and even add Holland and Ashton plus a 1st in 2016
@Leafs_17 Yes.....please....how about Franson for him
