@Pent_House @Cameron19  If they are traded I would believe that the value of both would drop because of the pressure on them to waive

His family should be use to the cold and hopefully he oversees the Jays too

@Burtonboy @Hifi75 @Walter_White  Yeah I could see him do that too. I am surprised we haven't heard whispers of Colin Campbell

Anthony, who do you see as a logical hire for the Leafs?

@Walter_White @Hifi75  Out of the group I mentioned I could see Shanny go after Draper. Though I think you need someone who knows the executive level well, like Little Lou from the devils

@Walter_White @Hifi75  Normally yes, but with them their is Guerin and Botteril under Rutherford. Poile is my choice and I believe it would be a promotion for him, good hockey mind

Any thoughts on who Shanny may be targeting for the Asst. GM? IMO they will target someone who could be in the plan of succession. Someone either with loads of experience or ready to take on the roll as G.M (Groomed). My choices in order are:


1.  Brian Poile

2.     Chris Lamoriello

Horachek I believe will be a positive to a more aggressive blueline

Great read. I cannot agree more with the aggressive forecheck that was lacking after a faceoff draw. I will admit though his point about how deep the D were past the blueline. Is something I did not catch but was very insightful

@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

@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.

@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
