@burroz @Habskilla Toronto has to win 3 of their 7 games remaining and Carolina has to lose the remaining 9 games for Toronto to pass Carolina.

listen, Edmonton will be taking Hanifin, there is just no question about that. I mean, look at their team and what they needed and it's only a matter of opinion who is better nothing is obvious. The order will be this,
Arizona - McDavid
Buffalo - Eichel (FYI Eichel may actually be the better player 5yrs from now)
Edmonton - Hanifin (the only question is how dumb do you think Edmonton's management is. If you honestly think EDM management has no idea to plan for the future and are the worst in the league then they will take Strome)
Toronto - Strome (I will admit there is a debate between Strome and Marner but what will seal the deal is their playoff performances but right now since Strome won the scoring race I choose him)
Carolina - Marner (with their win against Pittsburgh they are 4 points a head of us with 2 games in hand still)
The only way I am going to be livid this draft is if Carolina or someone else who is after us wins the lottery and pushes us to 5th.

@theselfishsloth @Hollandaise FYI, never has Edmonton and Arizona been 5-5 in 10 games. Not once this season, so the idea they will do it now is delusional. Lets just hope Toronto can keep the 4th pick from Strome.
1 day, 9 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bailey set to debut, Marlies within a point of playoffs, lottery date set
@NinetyThree @Habskilla @Hollandaise Jesus, I obviously meant to say every other team
@Hollandaise Every team has to play .500 hockey. If Edmonton can win 5 more games and Arizona win 5 games then yes we have a chance. So the question you have to ask yourself, do you think Edmonton and Arizona will win 5 more games this year?
If Vegas gets a team next year does that mean they pick #1 no matter what?
edit: by next year I mean 2016..wow, there is still 10 games left and playoffs.. So for the 2016 draft Vegas will get the #1 pick??

@Dangle_My_Berries @wiski I'm pretty sure that is why he signed with Toronto. I think Toronto guaranteed him NHL games to finish the season.

@kxbarillas @mtommy We have 50 contracts to use. You cant just sign everyone and hope for the best.
Management really needs to be smart here. We will be signing at least 2 new contracts after the deadline (our 2 firsts) and we are already at the 50 maximum and this doesn't count if Toronto somehow manages to get another 1st by trading Kessel or Phaneuf.

1 week, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Leafs Eliminated from playoffs
@Mind Bomb @zoidbergman @Habskilla @peterbleafs Ah, thanks. I was expecting 3 games. 4 is better. Will Holland out Smith is our 2nd line center!!
@ProfessorRance @MaxwellHowe @zoidbergman @peterbleafs Sounds great. Maybe we can draft a top line winger who is big, skilled and young...
@zoidbergman @Jmessih I don't know much about hanifin but people are saying he isn't even the best D man in the draft. There is some other guy climbing the rankings
@peterbleafs @Habskilla Meant to ask at what time today
When is Kadri's hearing?
@Jmessih You keep them together because they have been brutal for 40 games. Why change now when you want to lose?

@DeclanK Nylander is learning how to play on the wing this year. Next year he plays center and see how that goes. He shouldn't touch NHL ice till next year and only that is to give him a taste to see how competitive and fast the NHL actually is.
@zoidbergman @Burtonboy In person.
Kadri has a in person hearing with league safety tomorrow (Wednesday). It will probably be a 2-3 game suspension.
@JR from Halifax I'm in Moncton, had yesterday and today(I work Saturday-Wednesday) off because of the storm. I think the total was 50cm.

@Jmessih why not instead of 3v3 teams trade chances 2v1like a shootout? I hate the idea of 3v3

@zoidbergman what makes you think it will be sooner
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Greatest Tank Battles
@Radar O'Rielly EDM is picking 3rd btw. It will go Arizona 1st (Bettman will make sure of that), Buffalo, Edmonton
Who picks 4-6 is a toss up between Toronto, Columbus and Carolina. FYI Columbus and Carolina play each other 2 more times so that is a HUGE for Toronto!!
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Leafs Notebook – March 10
@docmma @Habskilla That is speculation, Toronto could very well be the only team in the league to spend $26 million dollars on NOTHING.
4 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
I think it is very important that people understand, it was Columbus who approached Toronto with this trade. This is far and away a better trade for Columbus and just solidifies Toronto as a fucking joke.
I am...just, so happy. Nonis with a potential job saving move!

@Luke_R still worried about his defensive game. But clearly he is a totally different player under Horachek

I am going to call this a 2nd pick for Franson because Nashville is probably going to win the cup. But man we need to cheer hard against them in the playoffs!! lol, who knows anything can happen!
1 month, 1 week ago on Leafs Trade Mike Santorelli & Cody Franson to the Nashville Predators
@DeclanK other then giving up 2 goals in the 3rd looked like a good game. The Brown goal was amazing but obviously the Hamilton goalie has had better nights
1 month, 1 week ago on Bob McKenzie on Tyler Bozak & Dion Phaneuf interest, Phil Kessel rumours
@Radar O'Rielly Honestly, Eberle is the better play only because Rielly's goal is against Edmonton. It is like Rielly getting an amazing goal against the Marlies, yes it is nice but still, it is only the Marlies. While Eberle scored on SJ a much, much, much, much, much better team then Edmonton.
So, IMHO the Eberle goal is more impressive.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: Bad, but not Oiler-bad
I need to get this off my chest, with regards to Gardiner.
Why would Toronto actively shop Gardiner? They signed him to a long yr deal for a reason and having 1 bad season does not change his progression. If Gardiner were to go a top 10 pick in 2015 will have to come back because anything less is a waste.
The kid is young. The entire team is struggling. He will improve and I am not worried about his development.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Game 54 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 5 vs. Oilers 1
@LyGuy I really think Phaneuf, Franson, Winnik, and Santo can be traded before the deadline easily. As long as Toronto gets a 1st for Phaneuf (at least) and Franson the return will be fair. As for Winnik a 2nd would be AMAZING and 3rd will be good enough for Santo.
@Yaknowwhat I don't understand why Toronto would trade Gardiner. I mean yes he is having a bad season but the Leafs see something in the kid and thats why he is signed long term.
It is incredibly shortsighted to think Gardiner should be shopped.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Game 53 Scoring Chances: Devils 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@Radar O'Rielly This is soo much fun this. Phaneuf is not at practice and Granberg has been called up!! C'mon trade!!
2 months ago on Monday Mashup: Perennial All Star
@Burtonboy Granberg has been called up btw. It was posted, take a look below
@Jmessih Phaneuf is not at practice! Holy shit could this be the start?!?
Heres a trade for you guys/gals,
Which would mean Toronto would get a 1st + Gardiner for Beauchemin + 3rd round pick (Leivo was drafted in the 3rd round). It would probably be a 15-20 rounder pick but IMHO a move that would make Toronto better in the future. Have the cap space to resign Kadri or even Franson and get us a good pick to either use to draft higher or to get a decent player with a higher ceiling.
2 months ago on Saturday Mashup: All Star Weekend
I think a lot of people are really expecting too much out of Rielly. He will be a good defenceman and probably be #2D but I don't see anything that screams elite. Thinking Rielly is worth ROR+1st is ridiculous.
Avs get a defenceman they need. TO gets a centerman they need. How is this not a good trade?
ROR for Reilly straight up.
@Cameron19 @Habskilla For Bozak to be a top 6 forward as Center he needs to be better then Duchene and MacKinnon. So Bozak will be a #3C for $4m/yr.
I think the most likely trade will be Rielly for ROR straight up.
As I keep on saying Avs are a very budget team. With Bozak you will get a very good #3C for $4m and maybe a top 4 defenceman in Gardiner for $4m. Total $8mil. Not. Going. To. Happen.
And don't forget other teams will be bidding on him as well, why would Bozak and Gardiner get ROR? Honest question.
@Mitch_S2 @Cameron19 @DeclanK The thought of JVR-ROR-Kessel is..sexy but unrealistic. Kessel should be traded as well and Toronto needs to rebuild.
@MLHS_Brown @Habskilla @Cameron19 @DeclanK He will be on the Avs
@Cameron19 @DeclanK So you think trading a #3 Center and a top4 denceman will be enough to land a top 6 center? There is also $9mil in cap space Avs need to consider there so it ain't going to happen.
I just don't know about ROR. But if the Leafs can grab him without giving up draft picks then go for it. I can see maybe a Phaneuf+Winnick/Santo+ as the lowest. The + will be a draft pic. Avs would need to talk to Winnick/Santo before trade about an extension.
I think this is a great opportunity for Toronto. Yes it sucks all of the prelim games are in Montreal but this will show just how much Toronto loves hockey. If we can sell out a few none Canadian games it may show that Toronto loves hockey and not just TML.

3 months, 3 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #25, New Jersey Devils 5 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3
I asked this question even before the season started, is there any situation in which the Leafs resign Franson? By the looks of it Franson is going to get that multi year big contract deal and I really have no idea what the right decision is.
Franson is youngish but constantly gets points and is a Right handed shot. He had a great playoff series 2yrs ago but struggled (with the rest of the team) last year. This year he is looking comfortable on the 1st pairing but 2nd would probably be better for him. We are paying Gardiner $4m/5yrs and Franson is playing better then him.
Should TO finally pull the trigger on him and give him his $5m/5yr contract (my guess that I pulled out of my ass)?
