Excellent read. Thanks AP.

@B_Leaf @Mcost61 Sure we could be better but we're the second highest scoring team in the NHL and we're just now starting to learn to play an effective defensive system. I think we give these guys and coaches a few weeks and we'll have a different Leafs team that we take be proud of

@Burtonboy And drugs!
@Forever17 @Fish Head @B_Leaf Yes, we need to wait and see. Sure the game against Washington we looked lost but it's a new system. The very next game against the Blue Jackets was our most complete game of the year. Take away the first 37 seconds against LA and it was a solid defensive outing. We know we can score and it will come but to see a defensive system is very refreshing. I for one am very optimistic.
@B_Leaf No, no, no. We can right this ship. We still have great talent and with a good system we can be a playoff team. Don't throw in the towel yet. Randy's finally gone so we're moving in the right direction

@philthethrill Carlyle was way more pain than gain. He was here too long. Colborne would have saved us a 2nd round pick that we used on Holland. Not that I have an issue with Holland but would you rather have a 2nd pick and Colborne or Holland and no 2nd pick?
Great Read Anthony and loved you on the CBC.
I'm really sorry to hear about Matthew from Capgeek. It's incredible how much his tool affected us Hockey Geeks. Sure hope he has a speedy recovery.

@HHT Why would we want anyone who plays like an old man. JK

@Savo43 He's elite. Would love to see him with Kadri
@WesternDP Looks really good in the 3rd.
Bernier not that sharp tonight
Anthony, Thanks for another great read.
Your first 4 of the 5 things I'd do are bang on.
Anyone can see that Clarkson isn't working on the 2nd PP unit except the coach.
I was worried that Ashton may have slipped out of our plans with his suspension but where are you going to get a young big player that does what he does for the money he's paid. We need to give him minutes, let him develop and see what we may have here. I don't see that we have anything to lose and it's not uncommon for big wingers to take a little longer to develop.
Without having the numbers to support it, I believe that Reimer plays better when he gets into a groove and giving him more starts would either strengthen our keeper position or possibly give James more value in a trade.
I don't understand why Carrick hasn't been swapped in for Smith long ago. Maybe more minutes with the Marlies? Either way, we need to give Sam the chance at 4C. He works hard and can drop the gloves if needed and Smith is just holding a spot with no foreseeable future.
I also liked the quote on Nylander. I know many of my MLHS brothers were disappointed when we passed on Nick Ritchie and took Nylander but when Nylander was announced I just jumped off the couch slapping my mitts together as hard as I could. This player is special and I'm thrilled that his future will be with our beloved Leafs.
Thanks again and Happy New Year!!!

Sure the Leafs have some shortcomings but they are definitely one of the most exciting teams to watch

1 month ago on Christmas Mashup: Happy Holidays MLHS
First I'll start with Merry Christmas and good will to all men.
Anthony, I'm really impressed with the data and your insight into what to do with Jake Gardiner.
I probably think like the average Leaf that it may be time to make a move on Gardiner but after this read I think we need to continue with patience.
The only thing I can't figure out is how we resign Franson, Kadri and Bernier. Something has to give and I thought Gardiner might have been a casualty. It looks like we will have some difficult decisions with the Cap this coming year.

Just got home from the Leafs/Stars game. What a great early Christmas present.
Bernier stood on his head and Phaneuf played a tough game.
Couldn't be happier!!!

@djamon @Yaknowwhat Might be a good time to trade Bozak. Sell high.
1 month ago on Tuesday Mashup: Stars Before the Break
I'd like to see Bozak and Gardiner moved out for ROR. Have ROR center Kessel and Lupul or JVR.
Having a defensive center like ROR would make a world of difference for our top line and I think the trade with the Avs would be a reasonable one.
1 month ago on Optimizing the Leafs Forward Lines
Nylander looks like the real deal. Although he's got the face of a 12 year old. He looks so much younger than 18.
A year in the AHL and I think we'll see him start as a 20 year old for the Leafs in 2016.

@Mcost61 @Fish Head I don't own any. I've got a lot of Leafs jerseys to choose from but they will never be thrown on the ice
1 month, 1 week ago on GDT: Game #34, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Chicago Blackhawks (7 p.m., CityTV)
I'll be at the game in Dallas on Tuesday. I would love to see them get out of the slump against the Stars
@skiingallday @Fish Head Final score?
@skiingallday Is that game over?
For the short time I've watched this game, Reimer looks really good
Just got in and turned the game on. How was Reimer on the 2 goals against?
@LyGuy With the cap continuing to rise his long term $8M/yr is a good deal. I think you could get someone like Taylor Hall or Aaron Ekblad for him.
Although I would not trade Kessel. I would rather trade Bozak and Gardiner to the Avs for ROR. Having a defensive minded C between Kessel and JVR would be a big plus and would help that line move I the right direction.
My 2 cents

@MaxwellHowe @Fish Head Smart guy
@MaxwellHowe Hi Jake
@Hmmm There must be some stats for that
@mr_hanie @DJBrianBurke @Fish Head @deedrag
Every guy on the team is not going to be a defensive specialist. Kessel is the only guy in the NHL to be a top 10 scorer each of the last 3 years and will probably be again this year. If we think Kessel is the reason we're losing I must be missing something.
@mr_hanie @deedrag He's trying to lower his value so that the Leafs can afford to resign him
@deedrag Kessel is Elite. I think that we need a solid 2 way center between JVR and Kessel.
Considering Emery is in net we still have a shot
@Mitch92 I've never heard of that show but I bet it beats watching the Leafs
@Yaknowwhat It's definitely a team loss but Bernier was not doing us any favors either. I miss the 1A/1B. I think it keeps both sharp barring any injuries
@MaxwellHowe Good point. He needs to pick his game up
It's nice to know I have all you guys here to share in my misery
Good thing Randy held Reimer out. Hopefully he'll help us get back on track
Sure hope Reimer gets the start tomorrow
@PeterZeroOne He'll be going to his old lines in the presser too
I seem to have lost my feed for the game. Someone up there must like me
Played great until Polak came back.
Yeah, that's it, it's Polak's fault.
@Hmmm @JWaterdrager Right you are
@JWaterdrager Where's Gardiner when you need him?
