@whalz @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @FRyan
If you look at Cam Fowler drafted the same year plays on a much more talented team he took 4 years 20 mil. Has more points has a defencemen

Aaron Portzline @Aportzline
Told #CBJ asst. GM Bill Zito and Ryan Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt, met yesterday in Traverse City. No progress; still $3M apart / year
how much is Ryan Johansen asking for ?
@dlb Mad @FRyan
No it just goes to show you dont need to be 6'2 200 lbs to make the nhl
5 days, 2 hours ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
Hoes does Patrick Kane dominate at 5'10 178lbs ?
People keep saying Nylander is to small to play this year at 5'11 183 lbs.
Here is a list of current NHL players
Derek Roy - 5'9 180lbs
Tobias Enstrom 5'10 180 lbs and plays defense. So my question to you dlb Mad how can Enstrom play defence when so small ?
Sakuu Koivu playes an illustrious career when it was a goon league and now the new type at 5'10 a 178lbs
Nathan Gerbe seems to adapt well. Ryan Rupert is smaller then Nyalnder Martin St Louis Brian Gionta
Fact is the game as got away from the north american style of brutalize hockey. And is now more European style. I know its getting cliche but he did play against a lot of ex nhl'ers in sweden in the modo league
Is it though ? He rarley cracked the AHL club.
As for Tyler Biggs great character etc. Just hasn't found it at the next level that he needed to. Unless he comes into this camp and found that extra gear. Hate to put the label of bust on him buts it's shaping up to be that
I think William Nylander makes it out of camp. Just from the limited time we saw him he has the wheels and the hands and was making a few of the prospects that have been to this before look lead footed. I think he will be the same as Morgan was last year hard to deny skill and vision
Perfect example is the LA Dodgers. Biggest payroll in baseball and have yet to do anything

@Burtonboy @Chris Jay @FRyan
Still not as much as kane or toews at 10.5 each
Money that could have been avoided and spent on something else.
This is costing Montreal a lot more as well. Think of the time and money spent on lawyers and under writers travel etc. To take this to a court and end up settling outside close to what the player was asking before he had to court.
opps read that wrong
They lost Spezza as well this year.
So let me get this straight Bergevin let this go to arbitration. PK was asking for 8.5 and he gets 9. Good on PK
If the habs get their way Pk will be paid less then Markov.
Wont hear till 48 hrs after proceeding

1 month, 2 weeks ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
This whole subban situation is crazy. He's the pillar of this organization pay him the 8 over how many years. He is a generational talent that doesn't come along often, keep low balling him and he will find a new team soon. How they can justify paying Gomez over 6 mil but can lock up a key cog to their success is beyond me
The leafs should throw what they did at kessel and get subban
The biggest thing and by far the most important is getting them under contract and with the team for camp. You saw how it affected the team and Franson last year on his hold out.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
I took a particular piece away from his interview "It's evaluating players, scouting reports, dealing with the personalities on the team, trying to hire the best scouts and people" So I was wondering if there is gonna be a shake up in the scouting ranks as well.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Wednesday Mashup: Dubas Mania
I think if you move clarkson down the third line and move Koteolia up it would give you a strong 3rd line of cycling
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
I noticed the Leafs have done something well and that is pick players up for absolutely nothing and get a far better return then any one was expecting.
@docmma @FRyan Leivo plays left wing. On left wing right now we have lupul JVR, Komorav, booth and Bodie
Looking at the depth chart somethings gotta give some where. Kontiola, Petri, Santorelli, Mike, David Booth etc didn't sign on to play in the AHL
Averaging 19 minutes of ice time per game (second among forward behind Weiss), he led the Panthers with 23 goals while ranking third with 40 points (behind Weiss and Mike Santorelli). With 280 shots, including a 14-shot effort against the Bruins on November 18, 2010
Kessel only moves if a cookie is being dangled in front of him lol
I remember a time we all wanted to trade for this guy out of Florida.
@NinetyThree @Bigfoot_for_1C @FRyan
2nd line with naz. He feeds off of Komarov
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference
Can't do that Clarkson contract suggest 2nd line duties lol
so Clarkson santorelli and booth on the same line ?
Looks like the leafs are taking a page from the Oakland A's organization
1 month, 4 weeks ago on The pros and cons of trading Cody Franson
@Alec Brownscombe @FRyan
From an unsigned defencemen for a 1st round 9th overall pick in the 2008 draft. To me hes a big jump over Gorges.
1 month, 4 weeks ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
That's a big jump in value from Josh Gorges to Josh Bailey what changed ?
I'm sure a lot of ppl talk to the same doctors and deal with the same phsyio team and have a better understanding of ppls injuries then us common folk would have info on. Especially if they are looking to add said player to roster there gonna have there own medical guys go over the medical files etc and make a decision
2 months ago on The Cody Franson Arbitration: What is he Worth?
This is my take from it. When they brought Bernier in the writing was on the wall that they were not comfrotable with Riemer has the starter. And Riemer saying he can start any where
Another aspect people are not looking at is the drag it brings into the dressing room. Sure were all big boys but when Riemer says he wants to be traded etc. how does that reflect on the team as a whole. You saw it last year when the media took the Franson hold out and ran with it at the same time it look like it was affecting the players in media scrums.
Put it this way Barb Hill is a miracle working and she got Dan Boyle who is a monster to learn to skate. Cody Franson just doesn't have the feet or the speed to be on the top pp. And you really cant start all your shifts in the O zone
Let Franson walk and sign Del Zotto for cheaper
And Jeff Skinner chose hockey over figure skating at the age of 13. Hamm is another famous person that is working with numerous people
2 months ago on Monday Mashup: The Dog Days are Here
Joe Palveski used Cathy Andrade to make the oltmpic sqaud in 2010
It's crazy and some nice outside thinking to bring in a figure skating for power skating lessons. We should look to a speed skater. Considering they are built towards speed as well.
Great article on Gauthier. Didn't realize that Barb Underhill was working with other NHL players.
Racked up over 400 pims in OHL in 3 season this Ty Bilcke kid
