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.

@mikeyboy Detroit has 5 Over Time Losses. Toronto has 3. Not really a huge difference

2 weeks, 3 days 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)?

I don't care he scored the Leafs only goal, Franson played a disgusting game and is not a top pairing defenceman. Just a terrible game by him.
1 month, 1 week ago on Game 17 Scoring Chances: Penguins 2 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@PeterZeroOne @ingy56 @Jordan29 @Habskilla This isn't so much of tank nation. This is sort of like watching an accident that going to happen. No matter how much you don't want to see it part of you cant help it.
It is just one game, but the over reaction last night followed by a game against, arguably, one of the worst teams in the league...at home. I mean, how can you not want to see what happens if TO losses?!?
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #8, Boston Bruins 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
Wow, if people are going to react like this when losing to one of the top teams in the East (even without Chara) how are people going to react to the Buffalo game on Tuesday? Buffalo is also coming off a win against SJ!
Kind of hope it happens just to see the reactions. The game is also in the ACC so it will be a kind of a perfect storm.
Guys, while I agree I want large changes (trading Kessel, Lupul, Phaneuf, etc and start a proper rebuild) the season is still young.
Look at Philly last year and their horrible start and they managed to make the playoffs. I am not saying that is going to happen but there is still lots of hockey to be played.
Edit: and you cannot blame Carlyle at all for this loss. He mixed up the lines, played the 4th line more, did everything he could but the Leafs just didn't want to play tonight.
OMGG. Next game is against Buffalo, who just beat SJ tonight! It's one thing to lose to Boston, but if TO gets out played by Buffalo on Tuesday it's going to be magical.
The game is also at ACC...I mean, holy shit I kind of hope TO loses just to see the reactions!
edit: took me forever to find the edit button. I said the game was on Monday but it is actually on Tuesday.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Game Day: Game #8, Boston Bruins at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
Toronto has won as many games as Boston and LA and have more wins than Dallas. I think people need to calm the fuck down and just enjoy the start of the season!

@FloorHockeyFlopper @Greg Fenton why would Buff trade their 1st? I don't mind day dreaming but I don't even think they would trade their #1 for Malkin

@Tim Horton next year other teams can make an offer to $ubban. Thats the difference
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: We’re Gonna Need a Montage
@Jordan29 @Cameron19 Clarkson has a NMC. He is not going anywhere..ever. However, he will be boutout in 3/4yrs when the cap hit is only like $400k
@Greg Fenton @TheCanucksnaphook @-Keon just trade away Phaneuf that will give us at least a top 10. But if you are going to trade Phaneuf may as well trade Kessel and do a full rebuild. With Kessel and Phaneuf out of the way there is our top 5.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Jake Gardiner talks contract with Greg Brady
@Uncle Otis @Habskilla wish I could edit but remove Finn and Lupul add Franson.
Gardiner Reimer Franson for Myers
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: As the smoke clears for the Toronto Maple Leafs
@Ydargo take out Finn..ya or nay?
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot @Habskilla ok, ok. I always thought Myers as a #1 Defender and lol that this trade would get Weber
@Tim Horton @Habskilla too much or you dont see Myers as a solid #1 Defender?
@mike_84 @rustynail lol, i literally just said that in my previous thread..let me copy what I said,
"Not going to lie but I will not complain if they put Clarkson on the 4th line and forced him to work his way out of there.." - Habskilla
@mike_84 @Bruffins i swear it took me a good min to figure out Gards=Gardiner. I was about to post that TO traded Gunner. I may need to call it a early night..lol.
Anyways, TBH to start the year i would put Frattin with Kadri. He did get a shit ton of goals last time they were together and it wont hurt to try. Not going to lie but I will not complain if they put Clarkson on the 4th line and forced him to work his way out of there.
@The_Polish_Cannon @RandomScrub @ShiftyD @Burtonboy they honestly would except of length..if it was 4-5yrs then they should consider it. Also Clarkson has a NMC.
IMHO I think that is the dagger. Why Nonis gave 7yrs with a NMC I have no fucking idea to a UFA.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Draft Day Two Wrap Up: Gunnarsson for Polak, offensive focus to Leafs’ draftees
@Loric76 @TheCanucksnaphook if only he was a RH shot. If TO were to acquire him he would be taking ice time away from one of our youngsters.
@lukethenuke Nylander is 18. Has never played on NA ice. And you think it will be a good idea to just throw him into the lineup?? Give the kid some time!
@Mattmark @Gilbey93 ummm, Ovechkin comes to mind
5 months, 3 weeks ago on William Nylander Drafted 8th Overall by the Maple Leafs
@Gilbey93 Would love to see Kadri and Nylander play together. I don't really see him as the #1C we've been looking for.
@Gilbey93 Buffalo picks first. I am sure we can come to an agreement to get the #2 for tomorrow. I totally over looked McKeown.
@loomx @Habskilla IDK. There is a reason no1 wanted him. Is he worth the risk??
Should we trade Franson to Buffalo for their 2nd rounder and draft Barbashev??
@LeafsGuru he had a rough start but didn't he get a call up for the last game??
I just hope TO picks a centerman. He may not be the consensuses best pick but I could argue that any guy after the 6th round is a toss up.
6 months ago on (Saturday Mashup) Tread Carefully
@Murph2417 @dlb Reggie which is why I am not against trading Phaneuf for the #1. Our talent pool on Defence will be Ekblad, Reilly, Gardiner + our maturing Marlies. With the trade of Phaneuf we will be a bottom feeding team for the next 4yrs which means we can restock on youth. We will finally get that #1 Center.
It will suck not being in the playoffs for 3-4yrs but man TO will be fucking dominate. We will have the best D in the league. Who know what our offence will be but it should be dominate. I think it is a very tempting idea.
@sniperstar @Habskilla @Loric76 He is a 4th liner. He is not a 3rd liner. But yes he has the speed to keep up on the 3rd line but he wont score or has the vision to get pts. Its that speed that makes him a perfect 4th liner. 4th lines are not ment to score, they are there to grind and not get scored against.
6 months, 1 week ago on (Friday Mashup) Two Weeks to Draft Day
@rustynail @Habskilla @sniperstar @Loric76 He had a bad year. If his play doesn't improve next year then you have an argument to fire Nonis. Once you get enough arguments to fire Nonis you fire Nonis. But if Clarkson is destined to play on the 4th line for the next 6yrs then we can have anyone else above $1m playing with him.
Komarov is not going to be a Leaf.
@sniperstar @Habskilla @Loric76 Komarov is not worth $2m. He is a great 4th liner and can manage on the 3rd line if there is an injury. You cannot have a 4th liner making more then $1.5m in a cap league.
@sniperstar @Loric76 Komarov is not going to happen. He wants more then what Nonis is willing to give.
We keep our 8th pick. How Fucking amazing would it be to draft 1 and 8 this year then top5 next year?
6 months, 2 weeks ago on (Tuesday Mashup) One more Kings win until the off season
@~Keon @MaxwellHowe but you may gain a leader..A captain for a couple years then when retires hands it down to a kid he mentored. The Leafs could do worse. Depending on price however.

8 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #80, Lightning 3 vs. Maple Leafs 0
It's kind of fun looking at the standings and seeing just how low TO can finish. Ottawa may be able to finish with a better record then us, we have played 1more game and are 3points above them and with our final game against them I fully expect Ottawa to finish better then Toronto...
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Leafs Prospect Update – April 6
I just can't believe we are not going to make the playoffs again..I had such a blast watching the games and seeing all the people outside just hanging out. Hard to imagine it isn't going to happen this year.
I feel so let down. I was going to drive to TO and stay with my grandparents to watch a weekend game outside..Like, i was really looking forward to that...
Fuck man. I try not to take this personal but I was really looking forward to that. I was so envious of the people doing that last year...I can't believe it has come to this.
8 months, 4 weeks ago on @SharkClubDundas Game Day: Game #75, Maple Leafs at Flyers
All this article did for me is want Carlyle fired even more. But I know it isn't going to happen because Nonis wants to keep his job and once you fire the coach the next person to go is the GM.
Carlyle will be around next year. Next year we will have the same collapse. And next year is when we fire Carlyle...
9 months ago on Joffrey Lupul: Also confounded by Leafs’ defensive system
Just woke up, and still kind of pissed.
I think everyone is feeling let down by Reimer because on a night where we needed him to play he was the worst Leaf on the ice, which is saying something because of Clarkson (who only played like 8min last night...)
I have no confidence in Reimer tonight and I prob won't be watching the game if Reimer is in net. If they win awesome but if Reimer cannot bounce back then IDK...
