@Burtonboy Lol at the credit given to Dubas already. I am not even sure he opened his mouth yet.

@DARF24 I doubt Komarov will play on the 4th line with what he is getting paid. Lupul thinks he should play on the 1st line and used to play there, to move him to the 3rd will make him request a trade.

Word from around the Leafs, for whatever reason, Poulin and new sheriff Brendan Shanahan just didn’t see eye-to-eye from Day 1. Poulin seemed to know he was on his way out. Loiselle knew changes were coming: He didn’t think they would include him ...

Some of these 1 year contracts will be used to get draft picks at the trade deadline, that could have been part of the reason for all those signings. We'll get our 2nd round pick back for sure, it's a crazy draft next year.

Devane was given that 2 year contract for a reason, if the Leafs are pushed around, he'll be the 1st call up.

Guys Ashton is gonna be traded. There's no way he makes that line up. Look at who he has to beat out to make the line up.

Dregger is a looser crying about Claude Loiselle loosing his job saying he is a good guy etc. That's the one guy i have no pity for, all he did is talk about nothing in his interviews and beat aroudn the bush, when it came down to contracts he was garbage and managing the cap even worse, he did more then enough to get fired. Poulin I had no problem with, but both of those guys had to go as a package, Shanny was right to send them packing.

6 days, 5 hours ago on Kyle Dubas, Brendan Shanahan Live Press Conference

Don't expect Leafs to be a bunch of Pussies.

Kyle is also wise beyond his years. He had to be tough and smart to survive and thrive in the dagger-filled world of player agents. Walt and Marietta practically raised Kyle after his father, Mark, a cop, and his mother, Paula, an ambulance dispatcher, divorced when he was eight. Walt used to take Kyle to Greyhounds games in the old Soo Gardens and drove home how important it is to have tough players. Marietta despises the “floosies” who play softly. Her all-time favourites: Bobby Clarke and Bob Probert.

So Kyle’s new-look Hounds are bigger and tougher by design. His top draft pick, six-foot-four defender Darnell Nurse, is the son of former Hamilton Tiger-Cats wide receiver Richard Nurse. The 16-year-old’s uncle by marriage is
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Donovan McNabb. When pint-sized centre Dan Catenacci, a former first-overall pick, demanded a trade, Kyle sent him to Owen Sound in return for six-foot winger Andrew Fritsch. Six-foot-four blueliner Michael Schwindt and six-foot-five Swedish winger Michael Schumacher were acquired through other off-season trades. “No grit, no glory”—Kyle often repeats this with his grandfather in mind.

Even if Franson isn't traded, he's gonna move down on the depth chart, so he won't be relied on nearly as much as last year.

@ShiftyD @Yan28

Looking at the comparable players above, one of the things that immediately (and perhaps surprisingly) stands out is that Cody Franson delivers a tremendous amount of body checks. With 644 hits in 322 games, Cody Franson has averaged two registered hits per game over the course of his career, which is tops among defenders included in this list both as an absolute and average number.

^^^ -- That makes Franson sound like a bruiser. Fransons hits are mere bumps, once in a while he does something that resembles a hit but he is not a deterrent to other teams at all. I always pay attention when he's on the ice and watched him all year, huge softy with no Heart whatsoever.

Come on man those "hits" are good on paper, but in reality he just softly bumps he doesn't really hit. For a man that size he's incredibly soft.
