@Yaknowwhat What's this about JvR to the Hawks business?
Arizona and Columbus need to start doing their jobs man.
Canes up 5-3 on the NY Isles, Jersey up 1-0 on Clarkson, er, Columbus.Arizona, well... you know they're losing. Badly.

Boston with the win over Joisey.
2 days, 10 hours ago on Agent Pat Morris on David Clarkson trade
Carolina needs to beat on Washington tonight and keep pace.
Think Jersey has a shot against Boston? Need them to stay well ahead of us too.
We've won two in a row....need that to stop too. haha.

Buffalo 6-3 WIN...only 3 behind Edmonton now
3 days, 10 hours ago on GDT: Game #61, Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN)
Bozak with a couple of points, Phaneuf with a power play goal......just upping their value for a trade deadline deal!
four shots on goal on two power plays. nine shots total.....STOP given em powerplays! See, refs screwing us over AGAIN. ;)
Arizona still tied 3-3
but we're winning 2-0.
15 - 2 shots in favour of the flyers this period??? and winning Leafs are 2-0? just can't catch a break.
Bozak making a statement tonight with his points? Trying to get Toronto another first round pick? ;)
@Jmessih @MaxwellHowe If the Leafs win the cup while they're paying Horton, does he still get his name on the cup for the HUGE assist in getting the team there? ;)
3 days, 12 hours ago on Leafs trade David Clarkson for Nathan Horton
I am still in shock.
@Mitch92 According to most, wasn't Clarkson a spectator too? ;)
What's next now? Jokinen, Lupul or Bozak deals? Where to and for whom?
@Marlies Man Don't know about the team but you can obviously feel the morale change of the fans!
@DARF24 That'll make the Staal's excited.....shooting practice for Eric on a daily basis. ;)
Grabo had his bell rung and was knocked out. Looked like he took a swift shoulder right to the head in my opinion.

Where are Franson and Santorelli? Still not playing? Don't appear to be on Nashville's roster just yet.

@DJBrianBurke @Marlies Man @DCDC Arizona and Carolilna need to start stepping it up like Edmonton. ;)
1 week, 4 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Friedman on Polak, Kessel to Florida, and NTCs
@Marlies Man if they can get to the shootout....it's anyone's game
@Savo43 We'd see what the scouting department will do, but judging by what they say about the draft, it'll be a good one to have those picks....
@BoneChompski @nrandreycharles at this point, even an OT loss would still be good and inch away at the points difference (not ideal, but a start)
LA is still very much in the wild card chase having won the last 5 games and have 3 games in hand on both the Peg and Sharks.....think they're involved still in getting some help from any of the Leafs players to make a playoff push??
1 week, 4 days ago on The Leafs shouldn’t retain a dollar of Phil Kessel’s contract
Thank everyone...very good points that I didn't take into account.
Is there much of a difference between teams budgets now as opposed to before the cap era? I mean...69 million is nothing to sneeze at, but if it is relatively the same as it was before, why the hell have one? What did it accomplish? An honest question....
@Alec Brownscombe Hey Alec, are all of these media types saying that teams need TORONTO to retain salaries when 'trading' the likes of Phaneuf or Kessel because they honestly believe they are overpaid, or is it simply that they are trying to get a moneybags organization who can print money to fit the bill because they can afford it?
Next up - Carolina. and then Winnipeg. and a break until the following Thursday when they take on the Flyers. Going to be a long week for the players wondering who else may be going on the way out from the club.
1 week, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #58, Florida Panthers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
@Cameron19 @OTL I also thought I read somewhere that LA wants Phaneuf, but only if he was at 5.5 million.....can't recall where I read that (or if it's true for that matter).
@Cameron19 @OTL I completely concur my friend.
@Cameron19 I think everybody would want a Kessel, even at 8 million. I think it's most teams are just trying to get the Leafs to keep part of the salary in my uneducated opinion.
only good thing about Carolina losing is that they'll still have two games in hand on the Leafs and still only 4 points back.
@Whalz Is Polak really considered worth a first?
@Top_Jimmy nope there isn't. It's what whalz said.
Why is Jersey bad? Buffalo ain't catching ANYONE and Jersey is tied with the Leafs. And Carolina down by 2 isn't good....
@TheColborneUltimatum down by 1
Columbus up by 2 over Philly
Carolina down by 2 to the Isles
Jersey up by 1on Buffalo.
What happened to Scrivens? Is he still playing in the NHL?
Also....The Oil still gain at least a point tonight. Arizona not helping (again).

@RaycroftButterflies @OTL Didn't realize that if Edmonton were to at least get into OT with the Habs, they'd only be 5 wins away from the Leafs!
If it wasn't a McDavid/Eichel kind of draft year, would everyone still want to tank as badly?
Anyone think Carolina ties it up with Anaheim?Losing 2-1....
NY scored at 1:11 and at 4:03 of the first.
Panik scores at 1:32 and at 4:09 of the second.
Gonna be a weird game it seems....
Who's 'Panik'ing' now that the Leafs could pull out a win? ;)
Thanks everyone...appreciate the feedback.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Game 55 Scoring Chances: Rangers 5 vs. Maple Leafs 4
Honest question here: If a team trades a player, and that player's contract is partially paid by the former team, how does that reflect on both team's cap?
I hope that made sense......thanks all.
I'm torn....you want the team to start pulling out some wins for pride's sake, but at the same time, you know that if there is a season to lose, it's this one.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #55, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New York Rangers (7 p.m., TSN4)
@LeafsForLife Luongo gave up a really bad goal too.
Will Arizona get at least a point against St. Louis?
@Cameron19 @NotSince67 Wow...didn't realize that.
